CLEVELAND- The Detroit Tigers'
pennant drive continued in reverse
gear last night, their losing streak
reaching five games after an 8-4 defeat
to Cleveland. The loss, in which starter
Dan Schatzeder (6-8) and a pair of
relievers were tagged for 11 hits,
knocked the Tigers out of first place as
a result of the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1
victory over the Baltimore Orioles.
Reeling from their four-game fiasco
in .Boston, the Tigers (22-16 in the
second half of the season) hoped to

satisfaction. One gets the feeling that
Garcia would like nothing more than to
watch his Indians seriously damage the
Tigers' title chances.
Schatzeder, who turned in six innings
of one-hit relief pitching against
Cleveland last Friday, was
being in top form. The left-han
