DETROIT - It was Family
Night last night at Tiger Sta-
dium, and the Kansas City Roy-
als responded with an X-rated
attack, stranding 15 baserunners
on the way to a 5-0 whitewash
at the hands of the Bengals.
Only 7,022 souls braved tem-
peratures in the upper forties, a
strong wind pounding in from
left field, and a three-game De-
troit losing streak, to watch win-
ning pitcher Vern Ruble and
John Hiller struggle to a nine-
hitter. If it weren't for one bad
pitch, and some dubious man-
againg by KC mentor Jack Mc-
Keon, they might still be there.
The bad pitch came in the
second inning, with the count at
2-2 on Willie Horton, Tom Very-
zer and Ron LeFlore on the
basepaths, and two outs. Royal
starter Dennis Leonard then
tried to drill strike three
through the letters.
George Brett and the bag, into
the left field corner. Both run-
ners scored easily while Hor-
ton, the slowest Tiger since
Rocky Colavito, wisely held at
The dubious managing came
in the sixth, when ex-Wolverine
Leon Roberts drilled a liner into
Section 4 in the upper deck,
with Nate Colbert and Bill
Freehan perched on the sacks.
The shot boosted Roberts' hit-
tting streak to 14 games - he
has yet to be collared this sea-
son - but it might have been
Through the first five innings,
Leonard had fanned a sextet of
Bengals, running into trouble
only in the second. But he took
nearly 90 pitches to do it, and
that many pitches in that few
innings usually spells fatigue.
COLBERT, who had popped
up twice (once of which got car-
w- rzuan -/-cont intoa
walk, and Bill Freehan follow-
ed with a shot between short
and third. But by the time the
KC bullpen had someone
ready, Roberts had homered,
and Mickey Stanley had follow-
ed with another wicked shot for
Ralph Houk, by contrast,
yanked Ruhle without hesita-
tion in the eighth, when the tir-
ing hurler gave up a single to
Vada Pinson and walked Cookie
Rojas. Then again, Kansas City
doesn't have a Hiller in its bull-
Hiller did face a sticky wicket
in the ninth, when secondbase-
man Gary Sutherland flubbed
leadoff man Jim Wohlford's
bouncer, and George Brett
blooped a doubledown the left-
field line. But the Tiger lefty
whiffed the dangerous Hal Mc-
Rae, got John Mayberry to tap
to the mound, pitched around
Harmon Killebrew, and fanned
pinch hitter Amos Otis to send
the folks home happy.

EAST LANSING-The Wolverine tennis team finished its dual
meet season on a strong note by shellacking Michigan State 9-0
This left the Maize and Blue with a 16-1 dual meet record-
their finest since 1957 when they won their lone NCAA crown.
The Wolverines handled the Spartans easily, as all six singles
matches were decided in two sets. Only the doubles match be-
tween Michigan's Brad Holland and Jim Holman and the Spar-
tans' Dick Callow and Kevin McNulty went three sets.
"We played indoors on a surface similar to ours and felt right
at home," coach Brian Eisner said.
Victor Amaya and Fred DeJesus continued their winning ways
by defeating Larry Stark and Tom Gudelsky 6-3 and 6-1 to push
their doubles streak to 11 straight. This streak includes an im-
pressive win over Stanford's John Whitlinger and John Delaney
earlier this year-last year's NCAA doubles champions.
The Wolverines' scheduled match with Minnesota this Satur-
day was cancelled as the Big Ten tournament is now slated for
Michigan has dominated the Big Ten tournament the last
seven years and is favored to win it again.

Day of reckoning for Islanders
UNIONDALE, N. Y. (P) - When the New York
Islanders lost the first three games of their Na-
tional Hockey League semifinal series against
Philadelphia, General Manager Bill Torrey stuck
his tongue firmly in his cheek and offered some
hope for his team.
"Now," said the bow-tied boss of the Cin-
derella team, "we've got them where we want
Down 3-0 to the Stanley Cup champion Flyers,
the Islanders have bounced off the deck with
three straight victories to send the series into a
decisive seventh game Tuesday in Philadelphia.
"We don't play hockey," said goalie Glenn
Resch, who spearheaded both the comebacks.
"We play miracles. I can't explain what's hap-
pening. I'n just riding along with it."
