DETROIT - Reggie Jackson
and Billy Williams drove in four
runs apiece, three each with
home runs in a nine-run Oak-
land fourth inning, to lead the
A's to a 16-4 drubbing last night
of the Detroit Tigers to com-
plete a sweep of their twi-night
Oakland, behind Glenn Ab-
bott's three-hit pitching and a
seven-run sixth inning, clobber-
ed Detroit 11-0 in the opening.
THE 27 RUNS by the A's were
the most for them in a double-
header since they began keep-
ing records in 1963.
The A's assault on Tiger
pitching became so embarrass-
ing in the second game that
many in the Tiger Stadium
crowd of 29,089 booed derisively
when Bill North grounded out
to end the A's six-run sixth in-
After a bases-loaded triple by
Phil Garner in the inning, many
fans chanted, "We want Mar-
tin. We -want Martin." Billy
Martin, fired Monday as man-
ager of the Texas Rangers, was
a big favorite when he was
fired as Tiger manager in 1973.
Abbott, a 6-foot-6 right-hand-
er, was making his first start
since being recalled from the
minors June 4. He had been sent
down to Tucson May 20 after
faltering, following victories in
his first two starts of the season.
GENE TENACE knocked in

three runs for the A's with a
third-inning homer off starter
Tom Walker, 7-9, and a two-
run single in the seven-run sixth
inning. Sal Bando singled in a
pair of runs in the sixth while
the others were knocked in by
Bill North, Claudell Washington,
and Billy Williams.
Larry Haney belted a two-run
homer in the ninth for Oakland,
his first of the season.
Abbott struck out eight bat-
ters in raising his record to 5-2.
Alomar action
CHICAGO-Sandy Alomar hit
three doubles-one of them pro-
ducing two runs in the fourth
inning-and Bobby Bonds added
two doubles to lead the New
York aYnkees to an 11-6 victory
over the Chicago White Sox last
Catfish Bunter, 13-9, outlasted
Jim Kaat, 14-7, despite a three-
r'sn homer by Pat Kelly in the
fifth inning. The fifth-inning runs
were unearned-as the reesult of
an error by Hunter.
THE YANKEES scored two
runs in the second inning when
Lou Piniella - walked and went
to third on a single by Graig
Nettles. Chris Chambliss singled
home the first run of the game
and Fred Stanley singled Nettles,
In the fourth, Nettles was hit
.by a pitch, Chambliss singled
and Alomar doubled both run-
ners home. Bonds followed with

a double, scoring Alomar, but
was out trying to stretch it into
a triple.
Boston beans
ton Fisk's third-inning single
scored the runs that sparked the
Boston Red Sox to a.5-4 victory
over the Minnesota Twins last'
Fisk's single capped a three-.
run third inning which propelled
the Red Sox to a 5-0 bulge.
BOSTON rookies Fred Lynn
and . Jim Rice colloborated on
the first run in the second in-
ning. Rice tripled off the center
field fence to score Lynn, who
had walked. Rice later scared
on Rico Petrocelli's single up
the middle.

Rod Carew slammed his 11th
home run of the season with
Jerry Terrell aboard in the
sixth to start Minnesota's come-
Busby buzzes
MILWAUKEE - Vada Pinson
and Buck Martinez hit solo home
runs and -Paul Splittorff pitched
Kansas City out of trouble in the
eighth inning last night, helping
the Royals hold off the Milwau-
kee Brewers, 3-2, in the first
game of a twi-night double-
Steve Busby carried a seven-
hitter and a 3-1 lead into the
eighth, but Milwaukee scored a
run on consecutive singles by
Don Money, George Scott and

BALTIMORE-The Baltimore
Orioles bombed Nolan Ryan for
six runs in 1% innings, two on
a home run by Tommy Davis,
and handed the California ace
his eighth consecutive defeat by
beating the Angels 8-3 last night.

since June 6 and is now 10-11,
made 37 pitches as the Orioles
scored four runs in the opening
inning-two on a single by
Brooks Robinson.

ly,. rapped his second home run

Koos man tames Reds;

By The Associated Press

continuous trouble, including a

Phils flip

Atlanta catcher Vic Correll's
throwing error in the ninth inn-
ing last night as the Phils edged
th° Braves 1-0.
Carlton, 9-7, and Carl Morton,
11-10, were locked in a scoreless
del going into the bottom of
the ninth when Jay-Johnstone
led off with an infield single for
the Phils. Walks to Greg Luzin-
ski and Dick Allen loaded the
bases, but Morton almost got out
of it.

Mike Schmidt popped up for
the first out, then Johnny
Oates grounded to shortstop
Marty Perez. Perez threw
home for the second out of the
inning, but Correll's throw to
first, trying for a double play,
hit Oates and bounded away,

ing single to Ralph Garr an
didn't allow another hit until the
