By The Associated Press
DETROIT-Veteran Bill Free-
han hit a three-run homer and
rookie Jack Pierce drove in
three runs with a single and an
infield out, powering the Detroit
Tigers to their eighth consecu-
tive victory, a 6-2 decision over
the Chicago White Sox last
night.,

Reds, Dodgers fill
N L All-star line-up

NEW YORK (A)-A final week surge of votes
has lifted Jim Wynn of the Los Angeles Dodgers
into the National League's starting lineup for
baseball's 1975 All-Star game, it was announced
yesterday.
Wynn overtook Del Unser of the New York
Mets, who had been leading for the third
starting berth in the outifeld. The final vote
totals showed four Cincinnati Reds and three
Los Angeles Dodgers among the NL's eight
starters.
Wynn had 1,241,291 votes to 1,210,084 for Reggie
Smith of St. Louis, who finished fourth. Phila-
delphia's Greg Luzinski, the major league lead-
er in home runs and runs batted in, was fifth
with 1,093,355. Unser slipped to sixth place with
1,057,049.
Wynn joins Pete Rose of Cincinnati and Lou
Brock of the St. Louis Cardinals in the NL out-
field.
Brock holds the distinction of being the only
starter named that does not play for the
Dodgers or Reds.
Rose, who has been playing at third base but
was listed on the computerized All-Star ballot
as an outfielder, received more votes than any
other NL player at that position with a final
count of 2,072,932. Brock, who set an all-time
record with 118 stolen bases last season, had
1,247,489 votes, the second highest total among

a.

the outfielders.
Two other Los Angeles regulars are in the
starting lineup. Steve Garvey, most valuable
player in last year's 7-2 NL victory, will start at
first base and teammate Ron Cey will be at
third.
Garvey, elected as a write-in last year, led
the NL attack with a single and a double,
driving in one run and scoring another in the
1974 game at Pittsburgh. He had 1,713,539
votes to 1,491,084 for Tony Perez of Cincin-
nati.
Cey, who also started last year, had a double
and drove in two runs in that game. He finished
with 1,745,858 to 939,141 for Chicago's Bill Mad-
lock, the NL's leading hitter.
Cincinnati teammates Joe Morgan at second
base and Dave Concepcion at shortstop com-
plete the NL infield.
Cincinnati's Johnny Bench, the leading NL
vote-getter with 2,930,147 ballots, will be the
starting catcher. Pittsburgh's Manny Sanguillen
was the runner-up with 1,153,794 votes.
Brock and Concepcion are the only changes
from last year's NL starters. Brock replaced all-
time home run king Hank Aaron, who was
traded to the American League Milwaukee Brew-
ers over the winter, and Concepcion beat out
Bowa, last year's starter, for the shortstop
berth,

Thetops
The string is Detroit's best
since July 26-Aug. 1, 1973, when
the t e a m also won eight
straight. The triumph' gave the
Tigers a sweep of the three-
game series after having taken
four games from Milwaukee.
Pierce staked Detroit to a 2-0
lead in the opening inning
against loser Jesse Jefferson,
1-4, by blooping a bases-loaded
single. He drove in another run
in the third with a forceout
grounder.
B r i a n Downing's two - run
homer off .Ray Bare narrowed
Detroit's lead to 3-2 in the fifth
but Freehan blasted his eighth
home run of the season in the
bottom of the fifth off Dan Os-
born.-
Bare, 4-5, scattered eight hits.
Yanks blanked
NEW YORK-Ferguson Jenk-
ins picthed a four-hitter for his
first shutout of the season and
Jim Sundberg belted a three-
run homer as the Texas Ran-
gers defeated the New York
Yankees 4-0 last night.
The setback broke a three-
game winning streak and drop-
ped the Yankees two games be-
hind the Boston Red Sox in the
American League's East Divi-
sion.
Wildness was the downfall of
loser Rudy May, 7-6, who drop-
ped his fourth game in a row.
He walked two batters before
Tom Grieve's run-scoring dou-
ble with two out in the first
inning and issued another walk
-his sixth of the game-before
Sundberg's two-out homer in the
sixth.
Jenkins, 10-9, was in trouble
only in the third inning when
Jim Mason led off with a single
and wente tthird on Rich Cog-
gn'one-out single. Jenkins
then struck out Roy White and
center fielder Lenny Randle
made a running catch of Ron

Yanks
Blomberg's drive to right-center
to end the threat.
Rice explodes
BOSTON-Rookie Jim Rice's
two-out double in the bottom of
the ninth inning scored Doug
Griffin with Boston's winning
run as the Red Sox outslugged
the Minnesota Twins 9-8 yester-
day.
The Red Sox had tied the
game in the bottom of the ninth
on a leadoff pinch home run by
Cecil Cooper. Then Griffin de-
livered a pinch single and
scored all the way from first on
Rice's hit.
Earer, two-run shots by Carl-
ton Fisk and Fred Lynn had
helped B o s t o n overcome a
seven-run Minnesota third in-
ning.
Jerry T e r r e 11 keyed the
Twins' big inning with a pair of
hits, starting it with a single off
pitcher Rogelio Moret's glove
and capping it with a run-scor-
ing pop double down the right
field line.
Money belts
KANSAS CITY - Don Money
slugged two home runs and
Bobby Darwin hit one, powering
the Milwaukee Brewers to a
6-4 victory over the Kansas City
Royals last night.
Money led off the first insisg
with his fourth homer of the
season and hit No. 5 with tsO
out and none on in the fifth.
Darwin's 10th homer of the
year triggered a four-run upris-
ing against Nelson Briles, 4-4,
in the Breivers' second.
After Darwin's shot, Sixto
Lezcano and Bill Sharp singled
before Lacano wan thrown out
at the plate on Bob Sheldon's
grounder. Gorman Thomas dou-
bled, scoring Sharp, and Money
hit a sacrifice fly.
