Arroyo blanks Jays, 9-0

Special To The naily
DETROIT - The Toronto
Blue Jays are finally starting
to look like an expansion club
- much to the relief of the De-
troit Tigers.
The Tigers had only beaten
first-year Toronto once out of
five times before their current
three-game series. But Detroit
breezed to a sharp 9-0 win over
a slightly inept Blue Jay crew
to complement an easy 7-2 vic-
tory on Tuesday.
A 13-hit power attack, fine
pitching by Fernando Ar-
royo, and solid infield defense
all meshed to give the Tigers
their fourth victory in their
last five games before a large
mid-week crowd of 11,349.
For the second night in a row,
Detroit jumped on Blue Jay
pitching for runs in the first
inning. Starter Dave Leman-
czyk, who only lasted for two

outs, issued a leadoff walk to
Ron LeFlore, who notched three
safeties for the evening, includ-
ing a triple.
Tito Fuentes shortened up to
bunt, but instead punched a
single into short left through
the space vacated by the charg-
ing Toronto infield. LeFlore
went to third on the play and
Fuentes advanced to second
when Rusty Staub flied out to
Steve Kemp knocked in
both men when he drilled a
sharp single to right. Kemp
himself scored when Toronto
leftfielder Al Woods dropped
Jason Thompson's fly ball,
resulting in a three-base er-
ror and a 3-0 Tiger lead.
Ben Oglivie, who also blasted
a huge two-run homer in the
fifth, accounted for the final
Bengal run of the opening
frame with a sacrifice fly that
scored Thompson.
The Toronto defensive play

was shaky all night and once
again aided the Tigers in the
second inning.
LeFlore singled off reliever
Tom Bruno, stole second and
advanced to third when catcher
Alan Ashby's throw sailed into
The speedy Tiger scored
easily when Staub's short fly
landed between centerfielder
Steve Bowling and shortstop
Bob Bailor.
Bruno iced the Bengal bats
until the fifth when Oglivie
cleared the fence in right giv-
ing the Tigers a 7-0 lead.
Detroit scored single runs in
the sixth and seventh off Bruno
and ex-Tiger Dennis DeBarr to
pad Arroyo's lead to 9-0.
LeFlore scored his third run
in the sixth on a Staub ground-
out, and Phil Mankowski sing-
led Oglivie across the plate in
the seventh.
Arroyo, who upped his sea-
son's mark to 5-3 on the
strength of his second com-

plete game, had the Blue
Jays hitting the ball on the
ground for much of the game.
His infield backed him up
well, gobbling up 15 grounders
without an error and adding
two flawless double plays.
Arroyo's fine performance,
which gained him his first
career shutout, included only
five hits -and one walk. It was
indicative of the recent im-
provement of the D e t r o i t
moundsmen. The team earned
run average has dropped from
4.23 on June 3rd to 3.94, the
lowest figure of the season.
Part of the reason for the ERA
drop has been the return to form
of Mark Fidrych. "The Bird"
surrendered only one earned run
in two complete game victories
on the coast.
Fidrych will return to the
mound tonight to try to com-
plete a three-game sweep of
Toronto for his team. The Blue
Jays will counter with rookie
ace Jerry Garvin (7-3).
