Norm Cash and Mickey Stanley
drilled bases-empty home runs
while Joe Niekro and Fred
Scherman continually pitched out
of trouble last night as the
Detroit Tigers edged the Minne-
sota Tigers, 2-1.
Cash, with his 11th homer of
the season, sailed a Bert Blyle-
ven pitch 385 feet to the right
field bleachers with one out in
the second to give the Tigers
a 1-0 lead in the nationally tele-
vised game.
Stanley connected off Blyleven,
7-6, for a 371-foot opposite field
homer to right to break a 1-1
tie in the fourth.
Niekro, 2-1, meantime, gave
up nine hits before he was re-
lieved after hurling six innings.
But the Twins, who ran them-
selves out of two potential big
innings, could only touch him
for a single in the second.
Topps tells
Mike's fate
SAN DIEGO (P)-On every
major league baseball players'
bubble gum card there is a
question at the top. The an-
swer is at the bottom.
On Mike Kilkenney's, the
question this year is, "How
many pitchers have pitched for
four teams in one season?"
The answer on his card is:
"Two-Willie Hudlin in 1940
and Ted Gray in 1955.
Now Kilkenny's name can
be :added.
The 27-year-old left-hander
was sent by the San Diego
Padres to Cleveland for in-
fielder Fred Stanley Sunday.
"This is so ironic I can't
believe it," said Kilkenney,
pulling his bubble gum card
from his duffle bag.
The' southpaw was sold by
Detroit to Oakland on May 10
and traded by the Athletics to
San Diego six days later. He
pitched four innings for the
Padres before Sunday's deal.

Rich Reese, subbing for slug-
ger Harmon Killebrew who was
given a rest, lined a double down
the right field line and scored
the Twins' second inning run on
a bloop single by Jim Nettles.
Magic Number: 107
That number hasn't moved
much lately what with the
Tigers having their troubles
and the Birdies chirping. But
have no fear, Detroit, Phil
Meeler's back.
Mets misfire
ATLANTA-Dusty Baker cap-
ped a four-run explosion with a
sacrifice fly in an eighth inning
rally helped by a crucial New
York error as the Atlanta Braves
beat the Mets 8-7 last night.
Baker's fly ball, dropped by
center fielder Tommie Agee but
officially ruled a sacrifice fly
brought home Darrell Evans
from third base.
Moments earlier, Evans had
reached third on an error by
third baseman Wayne Garrett
that allowed two runs to score.
Evans, attempting to move
two runners along, bunted to-
ward first and Clean Jones threw
to Garrett in an attempted force
play. But the ball got by Gar-
rett, allowing both Hank Aaron
and Sonny Jackson to score with
the tying runs.
Expos expire
HOUSTON-John Edwards and
Tommy Helms supported Jerry
Russ' six-hitter with run-scoring
singles in the fourth inning to
lead the Houston Astros to a 3-1
victory over the Montreal Expos
last night.
Houston t o u c h e d Montreal
starter Ernie McAnally for four
hits in the fourth to erase a 1-0
deficit. Jim Wynn led off with a
single and Lee May singled be-
hind him. Edwards then batted
home Wynn to tie it and Helms
brought May home with the
winning run.
Reuss, who boosted his record
to 4-5, retired 11 batters in a row
betwen the second and fifth in-
nings. He yielded two singles in

the sixth but a double play lhelp-
ed him thiough the frmine with-

escaping from a Boston hospital. Bobby always has enjoyed
speaking to the members of the press and he did a creditable
job of such yesterday, telling them he won't play the Russians.
