From Wire Service Reports
NEW YORK-Last night, the
hallowed baseball stadium at 161
St. and River Ave. in the Bronx
was .the site of a rare pheno-
menon. Its normally vacant seats
were filled to near capacity as
a crowd of about 50,000 were on
hand to watch New York hurlers
Steve Kline and Sparky Lyle
pitch the Yankees to a 1-0 cliff-
hanger against the Detroit Ti-

Bobby Murcer lead off with
his second two bagger of the
contest and scampered to third
on a grounder by Ron Blomberg.
Then, with two gone, veteran
Johnny Callison barely legged
out an infield hit to second to
score Murcer.
Kline was breezing along with
a three hitter going into the
ninth but had shown signs of
tiring in the previous frame.
Thus, Yankee skipper Ralph
Houk, to no one's surprise, call-
ed upon his messiah, Lyle, who
already had 25 saves to his
However number 26 was one of
Lyle's toughest and most excit-
ing. Gates Brown greeted his

first pitch with a long double to
right center. After Norm Cash
fanned on a sinking curve, pinch-
hitter Bill Freehan grounded up
the middle for an infield hit,
while pinch runner Tony Taylor
held at second.
Jim Northrup advanced the
runners with a grounder which
brought Willie Horton to the
plate with the go-ahead run in
scoring position. Houk decided
to walk Horton to load the bases
which would bring up weak hit-
ting Eddie Brinkman.
Magic Number: 50
Then Billy Martin made a
move, pinch hitting Ike Brown
for Brinkman. Lyle's first pitch
to Brown was wild and only a
fine stop by Thurman Munson
saved a run from scoring. After
that, Lyle settled down to whiff
Brown and the largest crowd to
witness a Yankee home game in
almost a decade roared with
pennant-fever approval.

Fischer, 29, responded with
