lively fast hull, struck out 12
and yielded only four hits as
the Bengals shut down the last
place Toronto Blue Jays, 7-2 last
Hiller was superb in his
fifth st-'rt of the season, allow-
ing only six men to reach
base. Only Bob Bailor, who
leads Toronto in batting at
.344, went the whole night
without fanning.
Two of the Blue Jays safeties
were home runs. In the seventh
inning, left fielder Ron Fairly
spoiled Hiller's shut out bid with
a one-out shot off the facing of
the upper deck in right field.
Steve Foucault was tip in the
Tiger bullpen during .the eighth
and ninth frames, when the vet-
eran Hiller had been finding
trouble this year. But aid was
unnecessary as Hiller knocked
out six of the last seven Blue
Jays he faced.
The one man who Hiller failed
to retire in that stretch was

designated hitter Doug Rader.
RAder, who was fanned three
times in his fourth game for
Toronto, lofted a Hiller fastball
over the left-center field fence
for Toronto's other run.
But the game was well out
of reach by then thanks to
timely extra base hits by the
Tigers, which gave them seven
runs on only eight hits.
Detroit jumped on starter
Jesse Jefferson for a quick one
nothing lead in the first inning.
Tito Fuentes beat out an infield
chopper and designated hitter
Rusty Staub followed with a 415
ft. double to bring home the
Bengals second sacker.
Jefferson then retired ten con-
secutive Tigers before a Detroit
explosion sent the Toronto right
hander to the showers in the
Bengal catcher Milt May led
off with a triple to right center-
just missing a home run. After
Phil Mankowski flew out to cen-

ter, shortstop Chuck Scrivener
bounced a single through the
drawn in the left side of the
Toronto infield to score May.
Jefferson hit Ron LeFlore
with a pitch and Fuentes fol-
lowed with a ground ball triple
into the right field corner.
Fuentes' three bagger, his
fourth of the year, boosted the
Tiger lead to 4-0.
On the next pitch Staub knock-
ed in his second run of the game
with a sacrifice fly to center.
i Mike Willis came into relieve
nd ended the Tiger rally by
forcing Jason Thompson to fly
out. But the Blue Jay relief ace
failed to cool down the Tiger
bats,. as Detroit tagged him for
single runs in both the six and
seventh innings.
May made up for his near
miss by blasting a Willis fast-
ball into the right field upper
deck in the sixth.

May's fifth round-tripper of
the s e a s o n ballooned the
Tigers' lead to six nothing.

Blue shut out
In somewhat of a surprise to Michigan
hockey fans, none of the Wolverine icers
were drafted into the National Hockey
League in yesterday's amateur draft.
Last year's Michigan team finished as
runner-up in the NCAA tournament.
Graduating seniors included Michigan's
all-time leading scorer Kris Manery, whose
brother, Randy, an ex-Wolverine now plays
with the Atlanta Flames.
ciation Major Junior League, was selected yes-
terday by the Detroit Red Wings as No. 2 in the
National Hockey's League's amateur draft.

THE RED WINGS obviously liked what they
saw in McCourt-and McCourt is delighted-. Th'e
5-foot-10, 180-pounder from Sudbury, Ont., had
60 goals and 79 assists in 66 games with St. Cath-
arines this season. He finished his OHA career
with a record 477 points on 194 goals and 283
"I have often thought about playing in the
NHL," McCourt said from his home in Sudbury.
"All I could do was wait for this day and now it
is here."
McCourt said he had been told by the Red Wings
Monday that he would be the No. 1 choice in the
draft. And he added he was not considering any
offers from the rival World Hockey Association.
The Colorado Rockies, drafting second overall,
selected defenseman Barry Beck from the New
Westminster Bruins of the Western Canada Hockey
League. The Washington Capitals then took de-
fenseman Robert Picard of the Montreal Juniors
of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

NFL bosses decide.
Miami'79 Supersite
Op The Assoeiated P rM
NEW YORK - The NFL yesterday awarded the 1979 Super
Bowl to Miami's Orange Bowl and the 1980 game to the Rose
Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., Commissioner Pete Rozelle announced.
NFL owners, gathered at their annual summer meetings,
heard eight Super Bowl site presentations before making their
Besides Miami and Pasadena, bids were received from Seat-
tle, Houston, Los Angeles, New Orleans (site of the 1978 game,
Dallas and Pontiac, Mich.
Super Bowl XIII at the Orange Bowl will be played Jan.
21, 1979, and Super Bowl XIV at the Rose Bowl, which hosted
the 1977 game between Oakland and Minnesota last January
will be played Jan. 20, 1980.
Earlier, Rozelle issued assurances that future Super Bowls
and playoff games would remain on home television.
"We're planning to continue our past patterns of telenast-
ing," he said.
There had been reports that the owners would consider
an offer by West Coast promoter Bill Sargent, who reportedly
was willing to'pay up to $400 million for the rights to all post
season games for the next five years. Those games would then
be shown only on closed circuit theatre screens. But Rozelle
killed that rumor.
