Jays as Tanana shuts down O's

DETROIT (AP)- Frank Tanana
pitched a three-hitter over eight
innings and Bill Madlock and Chet
Lemon homered as the Detroit
Tigers beat the Baltimore Orioles
10-1 last night.
The second-place Tigers moved to
within one and a half games of the
division-leading Toronto Blue Jays,
who lost to Milwaukee.
Tanana, 14-10, who had been
winless and was 0-3 in his previous
eight starts, picked up his first
victory since Aug. 11. He struck out
three and walked one in his eight
inning stint.
THE ONLY RUN off Tanana
came on Lee Lacy's seventh home
run in the fifth.
Eric Bell, 9-13, the first of five
Baltimore pitchers, gave up five runs
on five hits in three-plus innings.
11Madlock hit his 14th homer, a
solo shot in the Detroit first.
Jim Walewander's speed got the
Tigers another run in the second
when he reached on a bunt single,
went to third on a wild pitch and
scored on Madlock's RBI single:
LEMON HIT his 19th homer
in the fourth, an three-run shot with
Larry Herndon and Darrell Evans on
board-
Detroit Shortstop Alan Trammell
extended his hitting streak to 18
games with a double in the fifth and

scored on a single by Evans. Scott
Lusader, running for Larry Herndon,
who walked, scored on Lemon's RBI
single for a 7-1 lead.
Walewander tripled in the Detroit
sixth and scored on Madlock's RBI
grounder. Madlock worked around
and scored on a sacrifice fly by
Lusader.
Matt Nokes tripled in the seventh
and scored on a single by Brookens.
Cardinals 1, Expos 0
ST. LOUIS (AP)- Rookie Joe
Magrane pitched a three-hitter and
Tommy Herr's sixth-inning sacrifice
fly knocked in the only run as the
St. Louis Cardinals moved closer to
a National League East title with a
1-0 victory over the Montreal Expos
in the first game of a doubleheader
last night.
The opening-game victory left St.
Louis four games ahead of third-
place Montreal with six games left
for each team. The Cardinals also
moved three games ahead of the New
York Mets, who lost to
Philadelphia, 3-0.
Phlillies 3, Mets 0
PHILADELPHIA (AP)- Don
Carman allowed only one
baserunner- an infield single by
Mookie Wilson in the fourth
inning- and Mike Schmidt drove in
two runs as the Philadelphia Phillies

beat New York 3-0 last night,
stalling the Mets' drive to retain
their National League East title.
Shortstop Steve Jeltz cut off
Wilson's grounder toward the hole to
the left of second base, and Wilson
barely beat the throw to first.
Brewers 5, Blue Jays 3
TORONTO(AP)- Glenn Braggs
knocked in two runs with a pair of
singles and B.J. Surhoff homered as
the Milwaukee Brewers continued to
act as spoilers by defeating the
Toronto Blue Jays, 5-3, last night.
The loss was the Blue Jays third
straight and marked the first time the
team has lost more than two games
in a row since an eight-game slide
that ended July 7.
The Brewers, who have lost just
once in their last seven outings, now
have won eight of 12 games against
the Blue Jays this season.
TORONTO CATCHER
Ernie Whitt was injured in thebsixth
inning when he successfully broke
up a double play at second base.
Whitt was taken to a local hospital
and x-rays revealed two cracked ribs
on his left side.
Milwaukee starter Chris Bosio
earned the win with a seven-hitter to
improve his record to 11-7.
Toronto starter Jimmy Key, 17-7,
lasted five and one-third innings and
lost for the first time since July 11.

THE SPORTING VIEWS
By PETER ZELLEN
On Monday night the San Fransisco Giants
defeated the San Diego Padres. In doing so, they
clinched their first National League West title since
1971. Before the season I wrote that the Giants
would indeed win the division(see Daily-3/31/87.)
Now that they've accomplished this, I will go one
step further. The Giants, regardless of their
opponents (Blue Jays), will win the World Series.
Here are some of the reasons why:
-Their pitching is just plain effective. The Giants
starters always keep them in the game. Recent
acquisitions Rick Reuschel and Dave Dravecky have
solidified the staff. Atlee Hammaker and Mike
LaCoss are more than capable number three and four
pitchers.
In the bullpen, the Giants lack that flamethrowing
stopper that most teams like to have. Scott Garrelts,
with his 123 strikeouts in 99 innings, however, has
shown that 82 mph can work just as well as 95
when you want to get somebody out. The Giants
lead the majors with a 3.64 team ERA.
-The Giants' offense is potent with some kind of
hitting at every position. The only members of the
team that haven't hit are the backups at catcher and
shortstop and the fifth outfielder. That's not an
Achilles' heel considering that most teams sacrafice
offense at these positions anyway. Firstbaseman
Will Clark has 33 home runs, 90 runs batted in, and
a .300 plus batting average. He's a dark-horse
candidate for the National League MVP award.
-The Giants work together for the victory.
Remember all that team chemistry crap that the
writers spoke of when talking about the '86 World
Champion Mets. Well it works. The Giants don't
have a lot of big stars per se but they can rack up
numbers in the victory column.
They won't have a 20-game winner and they
probably won't have anyone with 100 RBIs. No one
player carries the team. Whether it's a shutout by
Big Daddy Reuschel or a home run by Jeffrey
Leonard or Mike Aldrete, somebody always pulls
through. A perfect example took place Monday.
Relief pitcher Don Robinson pitched five innings of
three-hit ball and hit a game-winning home run in
the eighth inning for the victory in the division
clincher.
-One can also look past the obvious pitching and
hitting aspects. The state of the club is surrounded
by good feeling. There are no player or managerial
outbursts. No bouts with the media. No fireworks.
Everything is calm and cool. The Giants play in a

Giants take West...
..Series next stop
relaxed atmosphere in a mellow city that hasn't seen
playoff action in over 15 years.
And how about that city. San Fransisco doesn't
have that destructive pressure that one might find in
New York, Los Angeles, or even Detroit. Players
aren't tense and aren't told to take control of the club
and win at all costs. They just go out and do what
they do best- play baseball.
-Manager Roger Craig treats his players with
respect and gets it back in return. He tells each
player where he stands so nobody whines about
playing time, or lack thereof. He's been called a
player's manager and I have to agree. A fun
clubhouse is one of the main aspects of a winner and
the Giants have one.
-The front office has been wheeling and dealing all
season long and has put together a contender.
General Manager Al Rosen and his staff have been
working overtime. Here is a list of the players
acquired since the start of the season: Reuschel and
Robinson from the Pirates, pitchers Dravecky and
Craig Lefferts as well as thirdbaseman Kevin
Mitchell from the Padres, and on September 2, they
traded for outfielder Dave Henderson from the Red
Sox. Henderson will not be eligible for post-season
play because he was acquired after the September 1
deadline.
All of these players have greatly contributed to the
Giants' success. Mitchell has been a terror at the
plate. In his Giant debut he crushed two home runs
and has been on a similiar pace ever since. In his
two-month stint as a Giant, 38-year old Reuschel
has only had two bad outings and has given the team
a steady game every five days. The other players will
allow the Giants to take a well rested bullpen and
outfield into the playoffs.
Rosen has gotten a lot of flack about dealing with
teams having fire sales like the Pirates. I disagree.
Being a good GM means being able to know how to
deal with the other team's executives. The Reds and
Bill Bergesch were unable to trade for the starting
pitching that they desperately needed. Rosen took
advantage of their ineptness and beat them to
Reuschel and the division title. Rosen should take
Executive of the Year honors.
If all goes right you'll be hearing Vin Scully
uttering those famous words voiced by Russ Hodges
in 1951:"THE GIANTS WIN THE PENNANT!
THE GIANTS WIN THE PENNANT!" Who
knows? It might be Will Clark's home run in the
bottom of the ninth instead of Bobby Thompson's
that will win it for them.

LOOKING FOR A PART-TIME JOB THAT'S FUN? I

-Associated Press
Former Detroit Tigers' coach and current San Francisco manager Roger Craig has a couple of good reasons to
be smiling. His Giants won the National League West title on Monday and his daughter gave birth to his gran-
dson on the same day.
