I LeFlore gets another

hit! Streak
ly The Associated iress
BOSTON - Carl Yastrzemski
lined a two-run homer and Luis
Tiant fashioned his second shut-
out of the season last night as
the surging Boston Red Sox
edged the Detroit Tigers 2-0 for
their 11th victory in their last
14 games.
Yastrzemski, who belted three
homers in a game in Detroit
last week, connected for his
eighth homer after Carlton Fisk
opened the fourth with a walk.
Yaz went to the opposite field
with an outside pitch and sent a
shot into the left field screen.
Tiant gave up seven hits,
but stymied the Tigers while
hiking his record to 6-2. Ie
struck out eight, including
Willie Horton three times, and
didn't walk any.
Ron Leflore extended his hit-
ting streak to 27 games with a
double down the right field line
in the fourth inning. The major
league's leading hitter went one
for four in the game.
Rookie Mark Fidrych, who
beat Cleveland on a two-hitter
in his major league debut, was
the victim of Yastrzemski's
homer and Tiant's pitching.

Winnipeg nears WHA title
with 6-3 win over Houston

By The Associated Press
WINNIPEG--Ulf Nilsson scored three goals and
the Winnipeg Jets, scoring four times in the open-
ing period, defeated the Houston Aeros 6-3 last
night to take a commanding 3-0 lead in their
best-of-seven World Hockey Association cham-
pionship final.
, The Jets can wrap up their first WHA crown
ever by beating defending champion Houston
here Thursday night. Should the Aeros win that
game, the fifth game of the series will be played
in Houston Friday night.
NILSSON SCORED once in each period before a
standing room only crowd of 10,384. He has scored
seven goals in the playoffs and 23 points, more

than any other player.
The Jets, who won the first two games in Hous-
ton by one-goal margins, broke Game Three open
early, taking a 2-0 lead on goals just 59 seconds
apart in the first 3/2 minutes.
Veli Ketola opened the scoring at 2:24 of the
period, then Nilsson made it 2-0 with a short-
handed goal at 3:23.
Mark Howe of Houston took advantage of that
power play to score at 3:48, but Winnipeg re-
sponded with a pair of power play goals of its
own to take a 4-1 lead after the first period,
Anders Hedberg scoring at 8:49 and Peter Sul-
livan at 11:33.
