Detroit captures first win, 9-3

Golden Words

BY GREG MOLZON

By ADAM SCHEFTER
Special to the Daily
DETROIT - With the Tiger
bats exploding for six runs in the
third inning yesterday, Detroit
registered its first win of the 1987
campaign and avoided a sweep in its
opening series.
Walt Terrell pitched eight
innings to earn the win, and Eric
King came on in the ninth to
preserve the 9-3 victory over the
New York Yankees.
The Yankees jumped on top in
the first when Rickey Henderson
toppled a grounder to the right of
the pitching mound. Terrell fielded
the ball and did his best Darnell
Coles imitation, throwing it into
right field which allowed Henderson
to go to second. From there, the
speedster moved to third on Willie
Randolph's groundout and scored on
Don Mattingly's sacrifice fly.
T*THE YANKEES had barely
begun to savor the lead when their
starting pitcher, Bob Tewksbury,
served up batting practice to the
Tigers. Tewksbury lasted two
innings and allowed four runs. His
successor Bob Shirley fared no
better in four innings of work. He
let up six runs.
The onslaught began in the first
when Pat Sheridan lined a one-out
single over shortstop Wayne
Tolleson's head. The next batter,
Matt Nokes, lined a double to the
wall in right-center which scored
Sheridan from first and tied the
score at one.

One inning later, Chet Lemon
hit a solo blast in the upper deck to
put Detroit in front to stay, 2-1.
And in the third inning, the Tigers
put the game out of reach.
Lou Whitaker started the rally by
singling to right. Sheridan followed
with another single to left, and
Yankee manager Lou Piniella then
yanked Tewksbury and fed Shirley
to the Tigers. Terry Harper walked
to load the bases, and Alan
Trammell drove a two-run single to
center. After Larry Herndon walked,
Darrell Evans drove a sacrifice fly
to center to put Detroit ahead by
four.
A Coles' single, Lemon double,
and a Joel Skinner throwing error
rounded out the assault to make the
margin 8-1 after three.
The day, however, wasn't a
complete laugher for Tiger fans.
Willie Hernandez was placed on the
15 day disabled list, and pitcher Jeff
Robinson was called up to take his
place.
Brewers 12, Red Sax 11
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Rookie
catcher B.J. Surhoff led off the
bottom of the eighth inning with
his first major league home run to
earn the Milwaukee Brewers a 12-
11 victory yesterday and a three-
game sweep over the Boston Red
Sox.
The winning blow came off
right-hander Steve Crawford (0-1)
after Boston's Danny Sheaffer's
first major league homer with two
out in the seventh inning off
Milwaukee reliever Chris Bosio tied

the game at 11.
Rob Deer hit a pair of three-run
homers and drove in six runs to
give the Brewers an 11-7 lead after
five innings.
Deer, who hit 33 homers last
season, capped a five-run third
inning with a three-run shot to left
off reliever Rob Woodward.
His second homer to left, also
off Woodward, wrapped up a four-
run fifth inning that also included a

solo homer by Glenn Braggs.
Bosio (1-0) gained the victory
with Mark Clear, who pitched the
ninth, gaining the save.
Trailing 11-7, the Red Sox
scored four times in the sixth, three
on Bill Buckner's bases-loaded
double.
The Brewers rallied from early
deficits of 4-0 and 6-2 as Deer hit
two homers in one game for the

Sugar Rayde fies odds...
...establishes greatness
Billed as the Super Fight, it was staged to determine who would
be crowned Superman.
Forget about the WBC middleweight title, the 12-round battle
between Sugar Ray Leonard and Marvelous Marvin Hagler
determined who would go down in boxing history as the greatest
fighter of this era.
And the winner- Sugar Ray Leonard. Brain over brawn, finesse
over strength, boxer over fighter, Leonard over Hagler.
Overcoming all odds, Leonard turned back the clock to do the
impossible - beat the menacing Hagler who hadn't lost in 11 years.
ALL THE experts agreed that it couldn't be done. Leonard, 30,
who had fought only 12 lackluster rounds in the last five years, was
fighting at a heavier weight (158) than he had ever fought at before,
and was doing it all without a warmup fight. Even in his prime,
Leonard's chances would have been questionable, but now, they said
he had no chance.
However, that is exactly why Leonard had to have this fight. He
certainly didn't need the money, the fame, or the risk of losing his
eyesight. He had already beaten the best - Benitez, Duran, and
Hearns, and had his place reserved with the greats of boxing history.
Still, Leonard wanted more. He wanted to do what no one else
could. The 1976 Olympic gold medalist had watched carefully as
Hagler destroyed every opponent he faced and knew that he, and no
one else, could beat the invincible Hagler.
As much as Leonard wanted Hagler, Hagler wanted and needed
Leonard just as badly. The middleweight champion had also beaten
the best and was termed unbeatable, but the elusive Leonard was
always looming in his mind.
LEONARD WAS the media darling, the Olympic hero, the
million-dollar man, and was adored by fans all over the country. As
marvelous as Hagler had been in his remarkable career, he never
received the adulation or credit that Leonard did.
So when Leonard offered the challenge, Hagler accepted and the
Super Fight was set with the champion favored by 3-to-1 odds.
Leonard told anyone that cared to listen that he would win, but
very few agreed with him.
The notion that a boxer who had barely fought in five years
would be getting into the ring with the most dangerous fighter of the
decade enraged sensible minds. They said it was a horrible mismatch
that would put Leonard's eyesight, and possibly his life, in danger.
WHEN THE fight finally arrived on Monday night in a parking
lot in Las Vegas, a funny thing happened. Leonard won a 12-round
decision.
No chance, impossible, against all odds.
The pure fact that Leonard was able to survive 12 rounds was an
amazing accomplishment in itself, but the most surprising detail
was that he was able to return to his form of earlier days and win the
split decision.
Yes, Leonard proved everyone wrong. And while many may never
accept that he did win, including Hagler, his amazing return will go
down as one of the great stories in sports history.
As always happens in boxing, there is now the temptation for
Leonard to fight again. He could have a rematch with either Hagler
or Hearns, or he could fight any number of other fighters for many
millions more.
However, there is no more for Leonard. He has beaten all the best
fighters of his time and forever will be known as a great champion.
There had always been doubts about Leonard's ability and desire
before, but now there can be none. By beating Hagler, Sugar Ray
Leonard has proven, once and for all, that he is a very special boxer.
