Special to The Daily
DETROIT - For the sec-
ond night in a row, the Detroit
Tigers found out that good
pitching beats good hitting.
And, when it comes to good
pitching, the California Angels

punches around. and upped his season mark

Frank Tanana just as baffling mixing his pitches well, and
last night, as they dropped a constantly keeping the Bengal
4-0 decision. batsmen off balance. The south-
Tanana fired a brilliant paw, a graduate of Detroit
three-hitter at the Bengals Catholic Central, struck out 11
men while walking only two.
He was so much in command
that not a single Tiger runner
reached second base in the en-
tire nine innings. It was Tan-
ana's fourth shutout of the
year, and lowered his ERA to
a sparkling 2.07.
Shortstop Bobby Grich gave
Tanana the only run he needed
in the second inning when he
drilled a Dave Robert's curve-
ball deep into the leftfield up-
per deck, staking the Angels
to a 1-0 lead.
The Californians added an-
other tally in the third when
Dave Chalk doubled and Joe
Rudi singled him home.
Rudi's RBI upped his league-
leading season total to 39.
The free agent leftfielder had
delivered 20 of the RBI's with
Tanana on the mound.
In the seventh, the Angels
sent Roberts to the showers.
Rudi lead off with a double to
left and Bobby Bonds followed
with his ninth round - tripper
of the year to give California
its winning 'margin.
Bonds' homer extended his
current hitting streak to 10
games - tieing him with Jerry
Remy for the Angel's longest
of the season.
Steve Grilli came in to fin-

only safeties for the Tigers.
In the two game series, De.

against the combined talents of
Tanana and Ryan. They struck
out 23 times, and failed to re-
cord an extra base hit.
This was after the Tigers had
racked up 24 runs and 39 hits
in a three game weekend sweep
The two losses dropped the
Detroit record back to 17-22

3 NBA teams swap
DENVER-The Denver Nuggets acquired guard Brian 1 l i
from Kansas City, guard-forward Bobby Wilkerson from S
and two 1977 draft choices yesterday in the first major trade prii
to the 1977-78 National Basketball Association season.
In a complicated three-team deal, Denver sent center Miin it
Webster and veteran forwards Paul Silas and Willie Wise to Setii
for the Sonics' Wilkerson, center Tom Burleson and Seattles sec
ond-round draft choice.
The Nuggets then sent Burleson to Kansas City in ex-
change for Taylor and the Kings' No. 9 choice in the first round
of the draft, scheduled for next month.
A three-time American Basketball Association defensive selec
tion, Taylor played on two ABA championship teams with the New
York Nets in 1974 and 1975. In his fifth pro season last year with
Kansas City, he averaged 17.0 points a game and finished second
in the league in steals.
"We believe Wilkerson will be an excellent forward for us,"
said Brown of the 6-foot-6% member of Indiana's 1976 NCAA
,championship team. Wilkerson, Seattle's first-round choice in
last year's draft, played at both forward and guard for the
Sonics, averaging 6.7 points a game.
Webster, 25, known as "The Human Eraser" in college because
of his shot-blocking and defensive work, missed most of his rookie
season with a kidney ailment. Last season he played in 80 games
and averaged 6.7 points.
Silas, a veteran of 13 NBA seasons, mostly with Boston, was a
spot starter in his only Denver season, averaging 7.2 points and
Wise, an ABA veteran, was Denver's fifth leading scorer lasi
year with an 82 average.
