four run sixth inning, the Kan-
sas City Royals came from be-
hind last night to clip the Tigers,
6-4 in the first of a two-game
series in Kansas City.
Tiger p it c her Fernando
Arroyo was rolling along with
a 3-1 lead, the Royals' only
run having come in the second

The Kansas City bats finally
came to life as they sent eight
batters to the plate and scored
four runs.
The Royals added another run
in the eighth off reliever John
Hiller and led 6-3 going into the
ninth. The Bengals loaded the
bases with only one out, but
could only manage to score once
as the Royals' centerfielder
Amos Otis ended all comeback
hopes when he went back to the
wall and leaped to grab Jason
Thompson's long line drive.

ANAHEIM - Frank Robinson is just short of a couple of hit-
ting plateaus, and if the California Angels decide he still can
swing a bat effectively, the veteran slugger may reach both mile-
stones.
The 41-year-old Robinson, signed by the Angels as a bat-
ting coach this week, says he won't press the issue of being
activated. But he would play if that was what the club wanted.
Robinson, 14 l4ome runs shy of 600 and 57 hits short of 3,000,
was a designated hitter for two years as player-manager with
the Cleveland Indians. He had 12 homers and 35 RBI'sduring that
Ieriod, but had to undergo surgery for an injured shoulder during
the winter of 1975.
Cleveland decided it wanted him to end his playing career
this season, then he was fired as manager.
"I took some batting practice while I was still with Cleveland
this year," Robinson said, "and I was amazed at how well I hit
the ball. I think it would take only about a week . . . for me to
determine if I could help the club."
Bostock blasts Twins
ANAHEIM - Minnesota outfielder Lyman Bostock, outspoken
all season about his insistence to play out his option with the
Twins, called the team's fans "front-runners", and blasted the
club's hierarchy for not finding his wife a job during last season.
He also-criticized Manager Gene Mauch's decision to use
him in left field and platoon him against certain lefthanded
pitchers. Bostock said he is a proven hitter and that center
field is his natural position.
"They're playing with my mind," said Bostock in a news
paper report Tuesday.
"Cm tired of playing for a second-class organization," said
Bostock. "The money is no longer an object. Happiness is what
I'm looking for.
"It goes beyond even the club to the fans themselves. They're
ignorant about baseball. They know nothing about the sub-
tleties. It's really the organization's fault for not educating
them."
He said the players were forced to stand on the team bus so
front office personnel could sit and he was upset his wife wasn't
found a job until this year by the team.
The 26-year-old Twins outfielder has also publicly ex-
pressed his desire to play on the West Coast next year in
many interviews with broadcasters and writers from Califor-
nia and Seattle.
His teammates were rreportedly infuriated by Bostock's latest
charges.
Twins' owner Calvin Griffith said in Minneapolis he was dis-
couraged by Bostock's charges and particularly concerned by the
