2 PARRISH TRIPLES KEY VICTORY
Tigers' Morris silences Yanks
By SCOTT M. LEWIS
Special to The Daily
Jack Morris pitched a fire-hit gem,
A prf'orniance mighu pleasin'
To the Tigers and their loyal fans
At flie end ofa hum-drun seasot.
DETROIT-The New York Yankees
won't be celebratingetheir clinching of
the AL East championship here this
weekend, and they can thank Jack
Morris and Lance Parrish for spoiling
Parrish smacked two run-scoring
triples along with a single while Morris
hurled eight and one-third innings of
five-hit ball as the Tigers stopped New
York, 5-1, before 27,318 appreciative
The Yankees' loss left them at 99-56,
five and one-half games ahead o
second-place Baltimore with only sever
games remaining. The Orioles squan-
dered a chance to gain ground on New
York as they dropped their second
straight game at Cleveland, 6-5.
Baltimore's defeat reduced the
Yankees' magic number to three-that
is, any combination of Yankee wins and
Oriole losses totaling three will guaran-
tee the New Yorkers their fourth
divisional crown in five years.
Yesterday,; however, the Yanks (18-4
during the month of September) were
held in check by Morris, who evened his
record at 15-15. Aurelio Lopez came or
in the ninth torecord his 20th save.
Morris struggled at the outset of the
contest, walkingsthree batters in the
first two innings and committing a
balk. In fact. it looked for a moment as
though he wouldn't survive the opening
Willie Randolph led off with a walk,
advanced to third on a fly out and the
balk, then scored on Bob Watson's in-
field grounder. Shortstop Alan Tram-
mell fielded the hot shot and threw te
the plate, but Randolph already had
crossed home safely.
Oscar Gamble followed with a single
to right, but Morris eased out of the jam
by inducing Jim Spencer to bounce inte
a double play, one of three twin killings
the Tigers turned over behind Morris.
Morris' counterpart, Tommy John
(22-9) did not have one of his finest ef-
forts of the season. Normally a control
artist, the 37-year-old lefthander
yesterday surrendered four walks and
hit a batter (Rick Peters), plus being
touched for ninehits, three each by Jim
Lentine and Parrish.
The Tigers reached John for two tain-
ted runs in the third. With one out, Len-
tine looped a broken-bat single to right
and Lou Whitaker walked. Then Peters
hit a grounder between second and fir-
st. First baseman Watson reached for
the ball, but Whitaker cleverly blocked
his line of sight by delaying his dash
toward second base.
The ball skipped past Watson, coming
to rest in short right field as Lentine
scored and Whitaker raced to third. He
subsequently scored the game-winner
on Trammell's ground out.
The Tigers added a run in the sixth
when Parrish tripled home Steve
Kemp, who had singled. They tallied
twice in the eighth on a walk, another
Parrish triple and Al Cowens' sacrifice

NEW YORK shortstop Bucky Dent avoids' the sliding Alan Trammell after
making the putout on an attempted steal during yesterday's Tiger-Yankee
game. Dent had a miserable afternoon, committing two errors on easy ground
balls and failing to get a hit-not what one would expect from an All-Star
shortstop. The Yankees lost to Detroit, 5-1, at Tiger Stadium.

brought an end to the Broncos' streak of
eight consecutive wins.

four consecutive running plays.
WESTERN MICHIGAN lost three
more fumbles in the first quarter, but

capitalize. Going into the second quar-

ELLIS SCOREDHIS third and final
touchdown of the day on an eight yard
jaunt, early in the fourth quarter.

missed extra point, with field goals of 49
and 44 yards to make the score 33-0.

Michigan State had still not scored a
point in any first quarter of the 1980
The Spartans first score came early
in the second quarter behind the run-
iig and pass receiving of senior run-
Kiig back Steve Smith. This touchdown
drive was capped by a five-yard pass
from starting quarterback Brian Clark
to Smith: Later in the second quarter,
Ellis scored on a one-yard run following
yet another Western Michigan fumble,
giving State a 14-0 halftime lead.
The third quarter began just as the
first half ended, with the Broncos tur-
ing the ball over when George Cooper
.cked off a Tom George pass. Behind
newly inserted quarterback John
Leister's passing and Ellis' second one-
yard touchdown plunge, the Spartans'
led 20-0 five minutes into the half. Mor-
ten Andersen's kick sailed to the right,
ending his streak of consecutive point-
