Ryan K's
Nolan Ryan, a beacon of
light on the dismal California
Angels, etched his name into
the American League record
book Monday night by strik-
ing out 19 Boston Red Sox in
a 4-2 Angel victory. Ryan,
who holds the major league
season whiff record of 383,
has 260 this year and most
likely will become the first
pitcher to strike out 300 bat-
ters, three seasons in a row.

Special Ta The Daily
DETROIT - Fred Patek
gave starting Kansas City
pitcher Al Fitzmorris all
the support he needed last
night as the Kansas City
Royals, aided by four De-
troit Tiger errors, posted a
6-2 victory here last night.
Patek socked three base hits,
scored two runs, and recorded
12 assists defensively to spark
the Royals' triumph.
The Royals scored twice in
the opening inning off losing
pitcher Joe Coleman, 10-10. Pa-
tek and Cookie Rojas opened
the game with back-to-back sin-
gles, putting runners on first
and third. With Amos Otis at
the plate, Coleman flung an at-
tempted pickoff past first-base-
man Bill Freehan allowing Pa-
tek to score and Rojas to trot
into third. Otis followed with the
first of his two sacrifice flies
to centerfield for the second

Kansas City added another
run in the second on Vada Pin-

RBI single. Healy made it all
the way to third when Tiger
catcher Gene Lamont's throw

his second inning antics, this

Coleman then walked Healy,

single, sending Healy to third.
One out later Otis again de-

The Tigers struck back with
two runs in the bottom of the
