LeFlore singles home
winner in tenth, 5-4

Special to the Daily
DETROIT-Just when it seemed that
last night's Tigers-White Sox game
would never end, Ron LeFlore singled
to center scoring Lance Parrish and
give the Tigers a 5-4 win with two outs
in the tenth inning.
LeFlore's shot closed the door on a
game which had started over three
months ago (April 18? when the teams
played two scoreless innings before
rains forced the end of play.
STEVE KEMP opened the tenth by
singling to right, and advanced to third
when reliever Lewin LaGrow hit
Parrish with a pitch and Tim Covan
bunted perfectly between the mound
and third.
But, as the game passed the three
hour mark, first Aurelio Rodriquez and
then Alan Trammel failed to bring in
the winning runs. Rodriquez struck out
on a 3-2 pitch and Trammel forced
Kemp at home.
But LeFlore ripped LaGrow's first
pitch up the middle, making a winner
out of Bob Sykes (6-5) who pitched four

singles in the 17th inning last night,
giving the Boston Red Sox a 7-5 victory

The issues seemed resolved in
Rozema's favor early in the game, as
the Tigers marched to a 4-1 lead behind
win-blown homeruns. Into the right

Staub and Milt May.
THE ROSE'S hopes for a birthday
victory (he turns 22 on Saturday) were
dashed in the seventh when the first
four Chisoc stroked base hits to bring
the count 4-3. Sykes came in and in-
duced pinch hitter Chet Lemmon into
hitting a double play grounder. Ralph
Garr scored on the play to tie the game.
Sykes shut down Chicago almost
completely, striking out seven in his
four inning stint. The only mistake he
made came in the eighth, when he
dropped Thad Bosley's bunt and gave
up a harmless single to Jorge Orta.
The Tigers meanwhile, collected 13
hits and have a good chance of passing
Minnesota and becoming the best hit-
ting team in the American League. All
the starters except Trammel had at
least one hit and LeFlore, Kemp, May,
Corcoran and Mankowski each had two.

Cubs 3, Cardinals 2
CHICAGO (AP)-Bill Buckner's tie-
breaking single in the seventh inning
gave the Chicago Cubs a 3-2 victory
over St. Louis yesterday, their 12th vic-
tory without a defeat against the Car-
dinals this season.
The triumph lifted the second-place
Cubs to within 31 games of the idle
Philadelphia Phillies in the National
League East.
