BALTIMORE (AP) - Milt Wilcox,
winless in 10 previous lifetime decisions
against Baltimore, hurled a six-hitter
and pitched the Detroit Tigers to a 5-1
victory over the Orioles last night.
It was the third consecutive triumph
for the Tigers, after five straight losses
to open their current road trip, and kept
them one-half game ahead ofBoston in
the tight American League East race.
WILCOX, 11-8, stranded seven
baserunners, five in scoring positibn,
before Jim Dwyer cracked a solo
homer with two ut in the sixth.
The Orioles loaded the bases with one
out in the fifth. But Wilcox, who has lost
nine regular-season games and a 1970
World Series decision to Baltimore, got
Eddie Murray to ground into a double
John Wockenfuss drove in two Detroit
runs. His RBI single in the fourth went
through the spot vacated by second
baseman Rich Dauer on a run-and-hit
play, and his sacrifice fly in the sixth
carne after Steve Kemp stole third base
as the Orioles tried for a pickoff play on
Ron Jackson at first.
KIRK GIBSON, who had three hits,
beat out a drag bunt to ignite the two-,
run rally in the sixth. He scored on

singles by Kemp and Jackson. In the
eighth, Detroit got its last two runs on
an RBI single by pinch-hitter Champ
Summers and a sacrifice fly by pinch-
hitter Al Cowens.
Scott McGregor, 11-4, entered the
game with an 11-2 lifetime record
against the Tigers. He has a 7-2 record
at home this season, with both losses in-
flicted by Detroit.
Red Sox 9, Brewers 3
BOSTON (AP) - Dave Stapleton
drove in four runs with a homer and a
single and the Boston Red Sox rode a
five-run third inning to a 9-3 decision
over the Milwaukee Brewers last night
for their seventh victory in the last
eight games.
Right-hander Dennis Eckersley, 9-6,
settled down after allowing two runs in
the third, althoughlhe was tagged for
another tally in the eighth.
Remy, Carl Yastrzemski, Carney Lan-
sford, Tony Perez and Rick Miller each{
had two hits in Boston's 14-hit attack
against three Milwaukee pitchers.
The Brewers, falling out of a tie with
Boston for second place in the'
American League East, scored two

runs in the third on a walk, a double by
Jim Gantner and a single by Robin
However, the Red Sox, 24-16 since the
baseball strike ended, rebounded
quickly against Milwaukee starter
Moose Haas, 9-7.
WITH ONE OUT, Remy singled and
took second on an infield out. Rice
doubled, scoring Remy and, after
Yastrzemski walked, Lansford lined an
RBI single to right. Stapleton followed
with.a line shot into the left field screen-
for his eighth homer.
Boston added two runs in the fourth,
one in the fifth and one in the sixth en
route to its 10th victory in the last 13
games and 12th in the last 16.
Murray tops in AL
NEW YORK (AP)- Baltimore's Ed-
die Murray became just the second
player to earn successive American
League player of the week awards

voted the distinction yesterday

only Oakland's Tony Armas previously
had been voted the award in con-
secutive weeks when he was named the
first two weeks of the 1981 season.
Murray, who hit .423 to capture the
honor last week, had 10 hits in 20 at bats
this past week with two home runs, a
triple and a double. He knocked in nine
runs, had a .950 slugging percentage
and a 1545 on-base mark. Murray is hit-
ting .343 in the second season.

victory yesterday night.
Waits, 7-9, whose last shutout came
on Sept. 25, 1980, also here against the
Yankees, broke a personal two-game
losing streak as Cleveland won for only
the second time in nine games.
THE LOSS WAS the Yankees' fifth in
their last six games.
New York starter Rudy May, 6-11,
helped the Indians with his own wild-

ness in both the fifth and the seventh in-
In the fifth, after May walked Rick
Manning-who stole three bases in the
game and has 14 successful steals in a
row-May could not field Dave
Rosello's bouncer and the Indians had
runners on first and second. Mike
Fischlin, a former Yankee farmhand,
then doubled to left for two runs.

In the seventh, May fielded Man-
ning's grounder and threw wildly past
first. After Rosello struck out, Manning
stole second and scored as he stole third
and May's 0-2 pitch to Fischlin got past
Rick Cerone for a wild pitch, allowing
Manning to come home.
Manning doubled home Toby Harrah
in the ninth and Von Hayes' pinch-hit
sacrifice .fly knocked in the final
Cleveland tally.
