Tigers'

six homers

sink Brewers, 11-7

By BARB McQUADE
Detroit -- Home runs were the
order of the evening last night at
Tiger Stadium -- both inside and
out.
Mike Heath hit an inside-the-
park homer and Kirk Gibson
poked one over the roof as the
Tigers outpounded the Milwaukee
Brewers, 11-7.
The two clubs combined for
eight homers.
Walt Terrell, 12-11, picked up
the victory. The Tigers
righthander gave up seven runs
on eight hits in six innings.
Mark Thurmond pitched'the final
four innings.
Chris Bosio, 0-4, took the loss.
The Tigers tagged starter Bill
Wegman for seven runs on seven
hits and, three of their six home
runs.
Gibson and Darnell Coles each
hit two home runs for Detroit.
The Tigers exploded for six
runs in the fourth inning on five
hits -- four of them home runs.
Chet Lemon led 'off the inning
with a four-bagger to left.
Heath followed with his
inside-the-parker, over the head of

Robin Yount at the 440-foot mark
in straight away center field.
Heath's head-first slide easily
beat shortstop Earnest Riles' relay
to the plate.
After Alan Trammell's one-
out double, Gibson blasted his
second homer of the evening and
24th of the season over the right
field roof.
Bosio walked Darrell Evans
and Coles followed with his
second home run, his 18th of the
season.
The teams exchanged two-run
homers in the first inning. Rob
Deer clubbed his 33rd to put
Milwasukee up 2-0.
Gibson countered with a two-
run shot off the right field roof in
the Tigers first, but it was merely
a preview of things to come.
Wegman then walked Evans
before Coles lifted a shot deep to
left. Left fielder Rick Manning
snared the ball before it cleared
the fence though, robbing the
Detroit third-baseman of a home
run.
Rookie Bruce Fields brought
Evans around with a line single
to right to put the Tigers up, 3-2.

Reds
SAN FRANSISCO (AP) Eric
Davis hit three home runs, drove
in four runs, and scored five
times last night, leading the
Cincinnati Reds to a 14-2 romp
over the San Fransisco Giants.
Davis, who has 26 homers for
the season, added a single in the
biggest day of his three-year
major-league career. He has hit
11 of his 44 career homers off San
Fransisco pitching.
Barry Larkin, former
Michigan baseball star, also had
four hits and Bo Diaz three for the
Reds, who totalled a season-high
18 hits off six San Fransisco
pitchers as Cincinnati broke a
three-game losing streak and
held on to second place in the
National League West.
Mets 6, Expos 1
NEW YORK (AP) . Keith
Hernandez and Mookie Wilson
hit two-run homers and Ron
Darling allowed five hits in eight
innings as the New York Mets
defeated the Montreal Expos 6-1
last night, lowering their magic
number to two.
Two Met victories, two
Philadelphia losses, or one of
each, and the Mets win the
National League East.
GRIDDE PICKS
Rumor has it that Rickey
Foggie's plane tickets had him
coming into Detroit Metro
Airport, solely for the purpose of
playing Griddes.
Said a dejected Foggie, "Man,
I just knew that I could pick all 20.
I just had to get to Ann Arbor!"
Tough luck, Rick.
