Tigers cash in Brewers; Pirates edge Cardinals

Orioles grab
eighth straight
Faltering Giants
beaten by Expos;
Padres top Mets
From Wire Service Reports
Detroit's Norm Cash con-
tinued his affair with the right-
field stands at Tiger Stadium
last night, and the result was
another victory for Billy Mar-
tin's club.
The slugging first-sacker
clouted his thirteenth round-
tripper of the season to give the
Tigers a 3-2 victory over the
faltering Milwaukee Brewers.
The blow came with a mate
aboard and wiped out a 2-1
Brewer lead and gave Joe Cole-
man his sixth victory against
two setbacks.
Cash's clout also moved him
ahead of Minnesota's Tony Oliva
in the American League derby
and, coupled with an earlier
double, moved his average over
the .300 mark.
The Tigers, however, could
gain no ground on front-running
Baltimore, as the Orioles won
their eighth straight with ri-

diculous ease, blanking Minne-
sota, 12-0. Frank Robinson drove
in five runs in the first three
innings for the winners with
two singles and a solo home run.
In the only other American
League game east of California,
Cleveland got five-hit pitching
from Ray Lamb and a three-
run homer by Ray Fosse to waltz
past the Chicago White Sox,
9-0.
Meanwhile, the N a t i o n a l
League East experienced a fluk-
ish occurence as three teams
occupied first place at one time
or another yesterday. The New
t York Mets started the day on
top, but St. Louis moved ahead
when the Mets lost an afternoon
game to San Diego. The Cards
lead only lasted six hours,
though, as the Pittsburgh Pirates
beat them 3-1 last night to move
a half-game in front of both
the Mets and the Cards, al-
though the Mets have a better
percentage.
Bob Robertson belted his
twelfth homer to help Steve
Blass up his record to 6-3 as the
Pirates sent St. Louis stumbling
to their seventh setback in their
last ten games. Clay Kirby
twirled a four-hitter and the
Padres got circuit swats from
Ollie Brown and Nate Colbert
to down the Mets and flame-
throwing Nolan Ryan.
The San Francisco Giants
continued their June swoon, los-
ing to Montreal, 3-1. The Giants,
who have won only once in nine
outings this month, were held
to seven hits by Carl Morton.
In other National League
games, second place Los An-
- geles failed to pick up ground
on the Giants as they were
edged 4-2 by Philadelphia. Red-

hot Willie Davis hit his first
homer of the season for the
Dodgers, but it wasn't enough.
Atlanta's Tom Kelley pitched
a no-hitter for seven innings,
but needed relief help from Cecil
Upshaw to notch a 2-1 win over
Houston. Larry Dierker suffered
only his second loss against ten
wins for the Astros.
