From Wire Service Reports
The Detroit Tigers finally had
a bad day yesterday, losing their
own game 4-1 to California's
flame-thrower Nolan Ryan and
seeing rival Baltimore break its
five game loss streak with a
11-2 pasting of Minnesota.
Oakland, leaders of the West,
rolled past the returning-to-nor-
malcy Cleveland Indians, 10-4,
but Chicago kept close behind
Oakland with a 2-1 win over the
Boston Red Sex.
Magic Number: 109
S... For the first in a long time
the Tiger's magic number didn't
shrink yesterday as the Bengals
lost and the Birds won. But 109

Leroy Stanton and John Stephen-
son, two more ex-Mets followed
with singles through the box
for the first run. Leo Cardenas
then doubled in both Stanton

The Orioles ended their loss
streak at the expense of Minne-
sota, 11-2, which slipped further
behind Western Division leading
The Oriole batters were led by
young Bobby Grich, one of three
youngsters in the reshuffled
Oriole lineup. Grich belted a
three run home run, his first of
the season, in the first inning
to give the Birds' an early lead
off Jim Perry.
Veterans Dave Johnson and
Boog Powell and Brooks Robin-
son also contributed to the
cause, perhaps saving themselves
from the wrath of manager Earl
Weaver who said Tuesday night
that perhaps some of his veto-
rans are "over the hill."
Johnson drove home two runs
while Powell and the only Rob-
inson left in town each added
two hits and one RBI.
The Twins, who now trail Oak-
land by five games helped the
Orioles out with four errors,
three of them in the fifth when
Baltimore scored five runs.
Oakland's batters were in fine
form, rapping out 14 hits in-
cluding two home runs as they
gave Cleveland its twelfth loss
in its last 14 games.
Benefitting from the hitting
barrage was lefthander Ken
Holtzman who pitched a nifty
14-hitter for his ninth win of the

year, tying with Mickey Lolich
and Gaylord Perry as the ma-
jor's winningest pitcher.
Joe Rudi and Mike Epstein hit
the home runs, both off Dick
Tidrow, as the A's blew one lead
but then came back to win.
Rudi's blast started Oakland's
three run first inning rally and
Epstein followed two batters
later with a two-run smash.
Cleveland rallied for three runs
in the second to tie the score,
the key hits being singles by
Jack Brohamer, Eddie Leon, and
Alex Johnson.
But Oakland scored one run
in the third and then four more
in the fourth, shelling out Tid-
row, 4-6, as they erupted for four
more hits, the biggest one a
two-run triple by Rudi.
Oakland's other prime chal-
lenger in the West, Chicago, was
led by its team leader, Dick Al-
len, for the 2-1 win over the
Red Sox.
Allen's triple brought home
Mike Andrews with the first Chi-
cago run in the -first inning and
Andrews drove home the winner
in the fourth to give ex-Yankee
Stan Bahnsen (does anyone re-
member Rich McKinney?) his
seventh win. Bahnsen is now 7-6.
A n d r e w s delivered in the
fourth, off loser Luis Tiant, 1-2,
followingdsingles by Ed Herr-
mann and Rich Morales and a
walk to Pat Kelly with a sacri-
fice fly.
Among the lesser lights in the
American League, Kansas City
came from behind to edge Mil-
waukee, 5-4, and New York used
a big third inning to overcome
Texas 7-5.
Amos Otis' two-run double in
the eighth gave the Royals and
reliever Tom Burgemier, 4-1, its
victory. Milwaukee had taken a
4-3 lead in the top of the eighth
on Ellie Rodriguez' single.
For the Yankees, it took six
consecutive singles and a sacri-
fice fly to score six runs in the
third and knock out Ranger
starter Jim Shellenback, 1-3.

Maj'ors end
player draft
NEW YORK W - Major
league baseball clubs, possibly
pointed in that direction by the
quick success of Pete Broberg
and Burt Hooton, reached out
for pitching help yesterday in
the secondary phase of their
annual draft.
Bob Lesslie, a fireballing
right-hander at Kansas State
University, was made the No. 1
pick by the Los Angeles Dodg-
ers, and by the time the first
round was over a dozen pitch-
ing prospects had been tapped.

zinski cracked a two-run double
to highlight a three-run sixth
inning last night that carried
Philadelphia to a 3-1 victory
over the Houston Astros, ending
the Phillies' lbsing streak at nine
Steve Carlton, 6-6, with relief
help from Darrell Brandon in
the eighth inning, picked up the
victory, only the second for the
Phillies in the last 21 games.
Carlton, who developed a sore
back in the seventh, had drop-
ped five straight devisions.
Reds rock Mets
NEW YORK - Tony Perez
drove in four runs, three with a
first-inning double, and reliever
Tom Hall snuffed out a late-
game rally as the Cincinnati
