MORRIS GETS HIS FIRST
Tigers stave off Brewers, 5-3

By The Associated Press
D E T R O IT - Ron LeFlore
drove in three runs and rookie
Steve Kemp' knocked in two,
while Jack Morris picked up his
first major league victory last
night as the Detroit Tigers de-
feated the Milwaukee Bres ers
5-3.
LeFlore, who hit a twa-run
homer in the third inning, broke
a 3-3 deadlock in the seventh,
with a run-scoring dou5le off
starter Jerry Augustine. Remp,
who had singled in a run in the

sixth, then gave the Tigers an
insurance run with a homer off
reliever Bob McClure in the
eighth.
Morris was m a k i n g his
fourth appearance and third
start since being purchased
from the Tigers' Evansville
farm club July 25. The right-
bander was Detroit's fifth
draft choice in the regular
phase of the free agent in
June, 1976.
Steve Foucault, who relieved
Morris in the eighth with two

outs and runners on first and Von Joshua went 5-for-5 with
second and got pinch-hitter Tom a pair of doubles, two singles

O.J. juiced up for Lions
NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y-Star running back O.J. Simpson will
be back in the Buffalo Bills' starting lineup at the club's home
preseason opener on Saturday against the Detroit Lions, accord-
ing to team spokesmen.
Simpson's reappearance in the lineup, announced Tuesday
by the NFL, club, came a lay after tests disclosed that the
blurry vision Simpson complained of last week was the result
of a minor eye problem that should cure itself. -
"I'm fit. I feel a whole lot better although I don't see any
better," Simpson said after participating in Tuesday afternoon's
drill session.
Wood chucker suspended
P1ITSBURGII-- The National League suspended Pittsburgh
Pirates shortstop Fr-nk Taveras yesterday and fined him an
undisclosed amount for throwing his bat at a Cincinnati pitcher
last week.
Taverns, the league leader with 40 stolen bases and with a .234
batting average, will be out of ac'ion for five games.
The bat-throwing incident erupted in the ninth inning of a
game last Friday.
Taveras heaved his bat at Cincinnati's Joe Koerner after being
hit with a pitch on the shoulder. Earlier, Taveras had been
brushed back and teammate Bill Robinson had also been hit. Both
Taveras and Boerner were thrown out of the game and the Pirates
said Hoerner was fined.
Out of the Steel trap
PITTSBURGH--Pittsburgh Steelers middle linebacker Jack
Lambert, dissatisfied with the pace of contract talks, is leaving
Pittsburgh, underlining his demand to be traded or given a raise.
"Although the Steelers control my future, I hope that in fair-
ness to the Pittsburgh fans, my teammates, and myself, that
they will honor my request to be traded," Lambert said in a
statement released yesterday by agent Bucky Woy.
In a telephone interview from Texas, Woy said he has
negotiated several times with the team owners of the NFL
club since Lambert first asked to be traded about 10 days ago,
"but nothing is any better."
He said the 25-year-old ll-Pro was determined not to play
his option year for his $33,000 samlary.
A Steelers sptokesman refused to comment on Lambert's latest
statement.
