Tigers s
MILWAUKEE (AP)- Gorman Thomas drove in
the go-ahead run with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in a
two-run Milwaukee eighth inning and the Brewers
held on to defeat the Detroit Tigers 2-1 yesterday to
clinch the American League East "Second Season"
championship.
Rollie Fingers (6-3), the major league leader in
saves with 28, earned the victory with 11-3 innings of
shutout relief as the Brewers gained a playoff berth
for the first time in the team's 13-year history.
THE BREWERS, who have a 21/2-game lead over
Detroit with one to play, advanced to the best-of-five
division championship series against the New York
Yankees, who won the first-half title.
Losing pitcher Jack Morris (14-7) carried a six-
hitter and a 1-0 lead into the eighth. But Paul Molitor
drew a leadoff walk.
Robin Yount then pushed a bunt toward first base.
Ron Jackson, the first baseman, hesitated after
fielding the ball and his throw was late to first as both
runners were safe.
CECIL COOPER, whose sixth-inning error allowed
the Tigers' run to score, then bunted down the third
base line. Morris picked up the ball, but had no play
as Cooper beat it out for a single to load the bases.
Ted Simmons followed with a hard liner which
Morris deflected to shortstop Alan Trammell, who
threw to first for the out as Molitor scored the tying
run. An intentional walk to Ben Oglivie loaded the
bases and Yount scored the winning run on Thomas'
fly to right.
Morris and Milwaukee starter Pete Vukovich had
battled through five scoreless innings before Kirk
Gibson, a .372 hitter since the strike ended, led off the
Tigers' sixth with a single up the middle. Gibson ad-
vanced to second when Steve Kemp was thrown out

ay goodb
on a grounder to shortstop Yount on a hit-and-run
play.
JACKSON THEN beat out an infield single on a
slow chopper to Yount, who had trouble getting the
ball out of his glove, as Gibson advanced to third.
Expos clinch NL East title
NEW YORK (AP)- Pinch-hitter Wally Johnson, in
the major leagues for less than a month, drilled a
two-run triple in the seventh inning that boosted Mon-
treal to a 5-4 victory yesterday over the New York
Mets, giving the Expos their first playoff berth ever.
With the victory, the Expos clinched a spot in the
National League East intra-division series against
the Philadelphia Phillies, who won the season's first
half. Montreal clinched the second half with yester-
day's victory eliminating the second-place St. Louis
Cardinals from contention.
MONTREAL WAS trailing 3-2 when Terry Fran-
cona, another Expos' rookie, led off the seventh with
a grounder to short that Frank Taveras mishandled
for an error. Jerry Manuel bunted into a fielder's
choice, and pinch-hitter John Milner followed with a
single that sent Manuel to second. Rodney Scott ran
for Milner, and Johnson, an infielder brought up from
Denver last month, tripled to right center field,
scoring two runs.
Neil Allen (7-6) was the victim of the rally, while
Bill Lee, the Expos' third pitcher, pickedup the vic-
tory and raised his record to 5-6.
The Mets scored one run in the second on a
sacrifice fly by pitcher Ed Lynch. They added a pair
in the third on Rusty Staub's RBI-double and a run-
scoring single by Alex Trevino.
THE EXPOS, needed one victory or a St. Louis
loss to make the playoffs for the first time since
joining the league in 1969.

Hagler
ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) - Marvin
Hagler ripped Mustafo Hamsho's face
into a bloody mask, then pounded the
Syrian-born challenger into submission
in the 11th round last night to retain the
undisputed middleweight champion-
ship.
Hagler's victory, for which he was
paid $1 million, came in the first half of

TKO's Hamsho in 11th

a championship double-header at The
Horizon Arena in this Chicago suburb.
MIKE WEAVER defended the World
Boxing Association heavyweight title
against James "Quick" Tillis in the
second match.
Hagler, with his sharper punching,
hand speed and much better boxing
ability, was in complete command from
the beginning. The end came at 2:09
when referee Octavio Meyran stopped
the bout as Al Braverman, one of Ham-
sho's cornermen, was about to climb in-
to the ring.
Meyran of Mexico and Judge Mike

Glienna of Chicago each had Hagler
winning 100-92 after 10 rounds. Judge Al
Trimari had Hagler in front 100-85.
THE ASSOCIATED Press favored
Hagler 98-91.
Hagler, who weighed 157, had Ham-
sho, 160, in trouble in the 10th round
when he battered him with both hands
to the head and right uppercuts snap-
ped Hamsho's head back. He was twice
rocked by right hooks and again by a
straight right just before the bell.
Hagler, of Brockton, Mass., came out
to finish it in the 11th round, but Ham-
sho, now living in Bayonne, N.J., kept
fighting back and, in fact, rocked
Hagler with a big right hook with about
1 minutes gone. Then, the champion
hurt Hamsho with three consecutive
right hooks and battered him to the
ropes with a barrage of punches before
Meyran stopped it.
THERE WAS a lot of blood spilled in

this battle of left-handers.
In the third round, Hagler was cut on
the right eyebrow by a collision of
heads while Hamsho had a cut on the
outside lower corner of his right eye.
Hamsho was cut on the left eyebrow in
the fourth round and Meyran stopped
the bout to call in a doctor.
The doctor allowed the fight to con-
tinue and Braverman's corner work
kept the fight from being stopped on
cuts although blood continually flowed
down Hamsho's face.
