HIS ERROR RUINS PERFECT GAME
Indians' Bosman no-hits A's

Miscue on grounder
gives A's lone runner

p ' From Wire Service Reports
CLEVELAND-Cleveland In--
dian righthander Dick Bosman,
who has struggled on the mound
after some good years in the
late Sixties and early Seventies,
defeated the World Champion
Oakland A's on a no-hitter last
night, 4-0, at Cleveland Muni-
cipal Stadium. Only a throwing
error by Bosman in the fourth
inning deprived him of a perfect
game.
With two out in the fourth,
Bosman fielded Sal Bando's
slow hopper to the right of the
mound but his off-balance throw
glanced off the glove of first
baseman Tom McGraw and roll-
ed away, allowing Bando to go
to second as Oakland's only
::tr baserunner.
Ironically, Bosman led Amer-
ican League pitchers in fielding
in 1970 while hurling for the
Washington Senators. He han-
dled 51 chances that year with-
out an error.
Bosman, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound
right-hander, then fanned slug-
ger Reggie Jackson for one of
his four strikeouts, leaving
Bando stranded at second. Bos-
N M man wound up the game by re-
tiring the last 16 Oakland bat-
,. ; <.ters.

DICK BOSMAN, well-traveled Cleveland Indians pitcher, whips home another high, hard one with a 1-0 record and a 4.54

those of Bobo Holloman and Bo Belinsky, will take up another line on the "No-Hit Pitchers" allowed 46 hits in 3921 previous

CAREW SHINES
wins overtake igers

By JOHN KAHLER
special To The Daly
DETROIT - It must be said
for Tiger fans that they are a
hardy lot. After the Tigers had
beaten the Minnesota Twins
Thursday night, all true Bengal
boosters felt that the Tigers'
prolonged skid was at an end,
and the Detroiters would return
to winning ways.
These hopes were a trifle pre-
mature. The Tigers lost their
eleventh game of their last thir-
teen last night, bowing to the
Twins, 7-5.
Tiger pitcher Lerrin LaGrow,
now 7-9, did himself in through
a lack of control. Leading 4-3
in the fifth, he walked Glenn
Borgmann to start things off,
and yielded a single to Rod
Carew, one of thre hits the Xl-
Star second haseman collected
last night

Braun popped up a bunt that
LaGrow fielded on one p and
nearly threw past Bill Fr-h n
at first. Larry Hisle then drove
a double up the left centerfid
alley to score the runners and
bring out Ralph Hoek to lift
LaGrow, a move many of the
Tiger Stadium partisans felt
should have been made innings'
earlier. Woodie Frvman strug-
gled out of the inning.
The first inning was a night-
mare for LaGrow, as his in-
ability to get the ball an waere

runs. Ar-lin l7'drio",p ribbad

He picked up 15 of his outs on
ground balls and the A's hit
only seven balls to the outfield.
Shortstop Frank Duffy and
third baseman Buddy Bell help-
ed preserve the Indians' first
no-hitter since Sonny Siebert
turned the trick against Wash-
ington in 1966.
Duffy made a leaping catch
of Larry Haney's liner to end
the third inning-the hardest hit
ball by the A's-and Bell dived
to his left to snag Bert Camp-
aneris leadoff grounder in the
seventh, then threw to first to
retire the speedy shortstop.
It was the second no-hitter of
the season, coming exactly one
month after Kansas City's Steve
Busby pitched one against Mil-
waukee. It also was the fourth
no-hitter in the last six years
against Oakland.
In the ninth inning, Bosman
retired Dick Green on a ground-
er to third, pinch-hitter Jesus
Alou on a grounder to second
and struck out Bill North.
Green had broken up a no-hit
bid by Baltimore's Wayne Gar-
land Monday night with a lead-
off single in the ninth inning.
TheIndians scored two runs
In the third inning and two in
the 'fourth against loser Dave
Hamilton, 6-. In the third, Tom
McCraw led off with a single
and Joe Lis followed with his
second home run of the seaso.
An inning later, John Ellis
singled with one out and scored
on a double by Bell, who took
third on the throw to the plate
and s c o r e d on McCraw's
grounder off reliever J o h n
"Blue Moon" Odom.
Bosmian, who was born and
still lives in Kenosha, Win , led
American League pitchers with
a 2.19 ERA in 1969 with Wah-
ington. He moved with the Sen-
ators to Texas and was traded
to Cleveland on May 9, 1973,
along with outfielder Ted Ford
for p it c h e r Steve Dunning.
Neither Ford nor Dunning is
still in the majors.
