Coleman one-hits Brewers

By The Associated Press
DETROIT-Joe Coleman fired
a one-hitter and Ron Leflore hit
a two-run single in the fifth in-
ning last night, helping the De-
troit Tigers to a 4-2 victory over
the Milwaukee Brewers.
The only hit Coleman surren-
dered was George Scott's two-
run homer in the first inning.

The right-hander finished with
four walks and eight strikeouts
in winning his second game in
five decisions this baseball sea-
THE TRIUMPH broke a three-
game Tigers losing streak and
snapped a five-game Brewers
winning streak-their longest in
a year.

Pete Broberg, 4-3, gave up a
two-out solo home run to Bill
Freehan in the Detroit fourth to
start the Tiger scoring.
Leon Roberts opened the Ti-
ger fifth with a bunt single,
then Aurelio Rodriguez and Tom
Veryzer walked to fill the bases
in front of Leflore's single.
LEFLORE gave the Tigers

another run in the seventh by
walking, stealing second after
five Jim Colborn pickoff throws
to first, then scoring on a single
by Gary Sutherland.
Milwaukee designated hitter
Hank Aaron made his Tiger
Stadium debut as an American
Leaguer. The home-run cham-
pion failed to get a hit but
walked once. Aaron hit a home
run in the park as a National
Leaguer during the 1971 All-
Star game.
COLEMAN got into trouble in
the first inning by hitting Robin
Yount with a pitch. Shortstop
Veryzer then bobbled Sixto Laz-
cano's double play grounder
which would have ended the in-
ning. Instead he got just one
out and Scott followed with his
third homer of the season.
Although Detroit only scored
twice in the fifth, the Bengals
threatened to really break the
game open. But Colborn got the
Brewers out of further damage
after replacing Broberg follow-
ing Leflore's hit.
Doug Griffin appears to be
playing leap-frog with Cleve-
land centerfielder G e o r g e
Hendrick. Hendrick was actu-
ally forced out at second in
yesterday's game.
Royals reign
Brett delivered a tie-breaking
single and Frank White added
a two-run hit as the Kansas City
Royals scored four times in the
eighth inning and beat the Tex-
as Rangers 6-2.

After the Rangers tied the
score in the top of the eighth on
Willie Davis' two.- run homer
loser Jim Bibby, 1-3, issued a
leadoff walk to John Mayberry
in the bottom of the inning and
Hal McRae singled him to set
RELIEVER Steve Foucaut
fanned Harmon Killebrew bs
Brett snapped the tie with a
single and the runners wount
up on second and third on t
throw to the plate. White fat
lowed with a two - run single
took second on the throw hoss
and scored on a single by Butl
Nelson Briles, 3-0, blanke
the Rangers on four hits unti
the eighth when Bill Fahey sin
gled and Davis homered.
Wilbur bewildered
CHICAGO - Steve Brye hi
his first home run of the season
and Larry Hisle added a run
scoring triple as the Minnesot
Twins won their fourth straigh
game, a 4-1 victory over the
Chicago White Sox.

this baseball season for Chi
cago's knuckleballing Wilb
Wood, who has won only once

enth inning, but yielded
