N W YORK _ c rtGamble's
tw-rIo htrnrr in the seventh
innig gave the New York
Yankees a 4-3 victory over
Mark "The Bird" Fidyrch and
the Detroit Tigers last night.
Gamble connected off the
young Detroit ace after Craig
Nettles had opened the seventh
with a singe. It was only Fidr-
ych's fo'trth loss in 15 decisions
and it marked the first time the
rookie was defeated when De-
troit had scored.
Grant Jackson, 2-1, the third
Yankee pitcher, was the win-
ner. Jackson relieved Jim
York in the fourth inning af-
ter Detroit had scored its
third run on a single by Tom
Veryzer, a walk to Rusty
Staub and Willie Horton's
RBI single. -
The Tigers scored two un-
earned runs in the first inning.
Ron LeFlore opened the game
with an itfield hit and stole
second. After Ritsty Staub walk-
ed, Horton grounded to Craig
Nettles at third. Nettles, at-
tenpting to make the force at
second, threw badly, allowing
Horton to reach base.
LeFlore came home as second
baseman Sandy Alomar threw
the ball past catcher Thurman
M tt n s o n. Jason Thompson's
sacrifice fly delivered Staub.
The Yankees tied the game in
the third when Roy White hit
his ninth home run of the sea-
son into the right field stands
with Fred Stanley on base. The
homers by White and Gamble
were only the sixth and seventh
homers off Fidrych-
Twins tumble
legged Hal McRae hobbled
around the basepaths with a
double and a home run and
Buck Martinez added a two-run
double last night to spark the
Kansas City Royals to a 7-1
triumph over Minnesota and
snap the Twins' eight-game
winning streak.
McRae, playing sporadically
since suffering a painful muscle
pull July 15, can run only at a
trot. His first-inning double off
Eddie Bane would have been a
triple for an average runner.

Bane, 4-2, surrendered three
rttns in the first inning on a
single by Ceorge Brett and dou-
bles by McRae; Amos Otis and
John Mayberry. In the third,
McRae's solo homer made it 4-
0 and Martinez added his two-
run shot later in the inning off
reliever Tom Johnson, which
scored Mayberry and Al Cow-
Sax sag
Eckersley pitched a three-hitter
and Tommy Smith drove in the
winning run with a 10th inning
sacrifice fly last night as the
Cleveland Indians ended Bos-
ton's four-game winning streak
with a 1-0 victory.
Boston reliever Tom Murphy,
2-5, who relieved starter Luis
Tiant at the start of the 10th,
was tagged with the loss. Tiant
allowed only three hits in his
nine innings.

MARK "TIlE B I R D" FIDRYCH expresses his disgust at getting his feathers ruffled by a
two-run homer by Roy White. Later in the game, Oscar Gamble added another two-run blast to
give the Bird his fourth loss of the season, 4-3, though only his first in which the Tigers scored
any runs.

Maddox' grand - slam home run
c a r r i e d the Philadelphia
Phillies to an 8-5 victory over
the Chicago Cubs yesterday for
a doubleheader split.
Rookie Wayne Tyrone's first
major league homer and Jerry
Morales' 12th of the season
backed the nine-hit shutout
pitching of Rick Reuschel and
gave the Cubs a 4-0 triumph in
the opener.
Maddox' homer was his
sixth of the season and his
second career grand slam.
It came in the fourth off loser
Steve Stone, 2-4, after the
Phillies had loaded the bases
on sins eglby Tim McCarver
and Larry Bowa and a walk
to Dave Cash.
Steve Carlton, 12-4, was

staked to a four-run lead in the
first inning on a sacrifice fly
by Mike Schmidt, a run-scor-
ing double by Jay Johnstone
and a two-run single by Mc-
Carver. Ron Reed relieved in
the eighth to pick up his eighth
The Cubs got two back in the
bottom of the first on a leadoff
inside - the - park homer by
Joe Wallis and a run-scoring
double by Morales. Carlton then
retired 15 straight batters be-
fore Tyrone singled in the
sixth and scored ahead of Bill
Madlock's 11th homer.
Kranepool kiouts
NEW YORK - Ed Krane-
pool's 100th career home run,
with one man on in the eighth
inning, enabled the New York

Mets to battle back for a 9-8
victory over the Montreal Ex-
pos last night.
Montreal had scored six runs
in the seventh and eighth in-
nings to go ahead 8-7. But Felix
Millan beat out an infield hit
off pitcher Joe Kerrigan in the
eighth and Kranenool hit his
seventh homer of the season
over the right-field fence.
The loss went to Kerrigan, 1-
1, while Bob Apodaca, the
fourth New York nitcher, pick-
ed up the win to lift his record
to 2-5.
The Exoos took an 8-7 lead
into the bottom of the eighth
after scoring the lead run on an
error by shortstop Mike Phil-
lips, who stumbled and fell
while fielding a ground ball
with two out and the bases
