Tigers slid

By PAUL CAMPBELL
and DON lacLACHLAN
SperilA To The [laily
DETROIT- Center fielder Ryon
LeFlore drove home Phil Man-
kowski with a two-oit single in
the bottom of the ninth lst night
to give the De'roit Tigers a
thrilling 3-2 comeback victory
over the slumping Boston Red
Sox.
LeFlore's third hit if the game
was a bouncing single to center
off Boston's relief ace Bill
Campbell which scored Mankow-
swi, who had singled and ad-
vanced to second on Chuck Scri-
vener's sacrifice.
JIM CRAWFORD was the
beneficiary of LeFlore's timely
base hit, winning to raise his
record to 2-1.
The Detroit lefty was impres-
sive again in relief, working
around singles by Carl Yastr-
zemski and Tommy Helms in
the eighth and ninth to keep the

beantown bombers off the board.
Starters Fernando Arroyo and
Ferguson J e n k i n s exchanged
solid pitching for the first seven
innings before being relieved.
ARROYO YIELDED only five
hit in seven frames, despite
constantly with his
S tvol . He was behind many of
the hitters he faced, but con-
sistuntll came back to down the
Soi with men on base.
Bit Boston, who leads the
American League with 109 home
rins, turned two Arroyo fast-
halls' into an early 2-0 lead on
blasts by Fred Lynn and Yas-
trzemski.
Center fielder Lynn unloaded
his shot in the first, cranking a
1-0 pitch into the seats in deep
rightcenter field.
YASTRZEMSKI followed suit
in the fourth with his 15th four-
bagger into the right field upper
deck.

rendered 18 round-trippers this

Gallagher turns doctor
NEW YORK-Former Wolverine defensive lineman Dave Gal-
lagher said yesterday he definitely would not return to the New
York Giants for the 1977 National Football League season.
The 25-year-old Gallagher, who played all four defensive
line positions last season in his fourth year in the league, had
stated his intention to quit at the end of the 1976 campaign in
order to attend medical school at Michigan.
The Giants had hoped he might change his mind or that they
might be able to trade him to the Detroit Lions, with whom he
could double as player and student. But neither sifuation material-
ized, so Gallagher, who played two seasons with the Giants and
two with the Chicago Bears, retired.
"I've made up my mind, I know what I want to do," he said.
Cosell delivers eulogy
STAMFORD, Conn.-ABC-TV commentator Howard Cosell will
deliver the eulogy at the funeral mass tomorrow for J. Walter
Kennedy, the former commissioner of the National Basketball
Association, a family spokesman said yesterday.
Kennedy, who was 64. died of cancer Sunday at St. Joseph's
Hosiptal in Stamford.
Cosell, a long-time friend of the Kennedy family, recently
described the former NBA czar as "a man of great conviction
and courage.
Noting Kennedy's childhood bout with polio, Cosell said, "He
was one of the two most courageous men I have ever known in
sports." The other, he said, was Jackie Robinson.
The family spokesman said special readings will be delivered
during the funeral mass by Andy Robustelli, operations director of
the New York Giants, and -Willis Reed, coach of the New York
Knicks.
Robinson yearns for Birds
BALTIMORE-Frank Robinson, who led the Baltimore Orioles
to their greatest glory on the playing field in recent years, says
he wouldn't mind returning to the team which has retired his No.
20 uniform jersey. -
As soon as coach Billy Hunter left the Orioles to become
manager of the Texas Rangers, Robinson's name was mentioned
as a possible replacement.
In Cleveland, where the -Orioles are involved in a series with
the Indians, Manager Earl Weaver said he would like to have
the deposed Cleveland manager on his staff.
Robinson, in a telephone interview with Jim Henneman, base-
ball writer of the Baltimore News American, left no doubt that he
would jump at the chance to rejoin the Orioles.
"It would be quite an honor," Robinson was qouted in a
story from Cleveland, published in Tuesday's editions of the
News American. "In fact, it would be an honor just to be
considered."
"If I got the chance to return to Baltimore," Robinson said
from his home in California "it would be almost like coming
home. I've said it on many occasions, that the best and hap-
piest years of my career were spent in Baltimore."
Robinson plaved 10 years for the Cincinnati Reds before he was

e by
year, kept the Tigers in the park
while scattering seven hits.
Three times his infield got him
out of a jam by engineering dou-
ble plays.
The Tigers finally reached
Jenkins for their first run in the
bottom of the fourth. LeFlore
beat out an infield hit, then scur--
ried home on an opposite-field
double by Tito Fuentes.,
Carew: I for 3
Minnesota Twin hitting sen-
sation Rock Carew hit one
single in three trips to the
plate in his team's 8-3 victory
over the Milwaukee Brewers.
In addition, he drove in a run
with a sacrifice fly, and
scored a run, but his batting
average dipped a bit to .407.
CAMPBELL, w h o s e record
slipped to 5-5, also utilized a
double play to escape 7th inning
trouble.
But the Red Sox ran out of
solutions in the eighth. Pinch-
hitter Tim Corcoran led off with
a bloop single which fell in front
of the charging Lynn. LeFlore
followed with a beautiful bunt
which he legged out for a single.

... 3 clutch hits ... picks up the w

men tip a base, Steve Kemp tied
the score at two with a sacrifice
fly to left.
BOTH TEAMS displayed a
fine defensive touch throughout
the hot, muggy evening. Lynn
was the biggest star in the field,
spearing a Milt May liner to
rightcenter in the third with his
back turned to home, and mak-
ing a spectacular diving catch in
the seventh to thwart a Detroit
rally.
LeFlore killed a Bostonian
threat in the sixth with a fine
running catch of a 415-foot blast
off Yastrzemski's bat, which he
juggled before securing it for the

out.
THE TIGERS also came
with a key double play in 1
seventh to help Arroyo out
bases loaded, no-out jam.
With the victory, the Beng
extended their winning streak
three -ying their longest of
season.
The Red Six, on the al
hand, lost their fifth consecut
garne--their worst skid of
year.
