Brewers rip Tigers, 7-1

Special to the Dally
MILWAUKEE - Detroit Tiger pit-
cher Dan Petry managed to hold off the
Milwaukee Brewer bats for three com-
plete innings yesterday afternoon, the
best the Tiger staff has done in the last
three games. In the long run, however,
the Brewer bats were alive and well as
they, pounded out a 7-1 victory over the
The win was the third in a row for the
Brewers in the series, after the Tigers.
won the first game.
PETRY CRUISED through the first
three innings with no problems,
allowing only a pair of two-out base
hits, but he ran into trouble in the four-
The difficulties started when Brewer
first baseman Cecil Cooper worked
Petry for a lead-off walk. Back-to-back
singles by Ben Oglivig and Ted Sim-
mons then loaded the bases with still
nobody out. Roy Howell then parked a
Petry fastball into the Brewer bullpen
for a grand-slam, giving the Brewers a
4-1 lead.
Thefour runs turned out to be enough'
for Brewer starter Mike Caldwell, who
lasted seven-and-two-thirds innings and
got the win, raising his record to 5-4.
Petry went the distance for the Tigers,
and the loss lowered his record to 2-4.
1 THE BREWERS got three more runs
for Caldwell in the bottom of the eighth
after two were out. The uprising started
when Oglivie singled, the first of four

consecutive Brewer base hits. Simmons
then belted his third base hit of the day,
a home-run down the rightfield line, ac-
counting for two more Brewer runs. A
double by Howell and a base hit by
Robin Yount finished the scoring in the
Although the Tigers threatened in
each of the first four innings, they could
only come up with a single run in the
second. This occurred when Lance
Parrish led off the inning by doubling
down the leftfield line. After Tom
Brookens' sacrifice bunt moved
Parrish to third, it appeared as though
Caldwell might get out of the inning
when he got Champ Summers on a
short fly to right. Lynn Jones, however,
came up with a two-out, run-scoring
single to drive in what turned out to be
the only Tiger run of the afternoon.
Braves 9, Dodgers 4
ATLANTA (AP)-Veteran right-
hander Gaylord Perry moved closer to
the magic 300-victory plateau and hit a
two-run single in a seven-run uprising
that chased rookie sensation Fernando
Valenzuela as the Atlanta Braves
belted the Los Angeles Dodgers, 9-4,
last night.
Valenzuela, 8-2, lasted only 3 2-3 in-
nings and was charged with seven ear-
ned runs, lifting his earned run average
from 1.24 to 1.88. It marked the first
time that Valenzuela failed to pitch at
lease seven innings this season and was
his second straight defeat.

Pirates 9, Cubs 4
CHICAGO (AP)-Dale Berra's base-
clearing double capped a five-run fifth
inning yesterday and powered Eddie
Solomon and the Pittsburgh Pirates to a
9-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs.
THE TRIUMPH was the third
straight for the Pirates after dropping
the opening game of the series, while
the Cubs went down to their 31st loss in
40 decisions.

Lee Lacy opened the decisive fifth
with one of his three singles, took
second on a balk by loser Bill Caudill, 1-
4, and scored on a single by Omar
Moreno. Moreno stole second and
scored on a single by Bill Madlock.
Solomon, 3-3, originally put the
Pirates ahead with a run-scoring single
in the third after Tony Pena had
