1968 Year
It doesn't matter if you side with the players or the owners in the baseball strike,
there is one thing everyone agrees on - it is an unfortunate situation. So in order to
partially relieve the misery of any baseball junkies going through withdrawal,
throughout the duration of the strike the Daily will provide a look back to ca-more
pleasant time - 1968. There was no free agent compensation, no NLRB, no court in-
junctions, and no strike. And for those of you who don't remember, in 1968 the Tigers
were winners, World Series winners in fact. Each day the Daily will relate the results of
the previous evening's Tiger game - minus 13 years.

of the Tiger
conceded his, club was in a pretty strategic position nearing the All-Star
break.
The Tigers' twin win, 5-4 in the opener and 7-6 in the nightcap, left them
with a 55-28, .663 season-27 games over the .500 mark.
The victories also made a believer out of A's manager Bob Kennedy, a
close friend of Smith's.
"I THINK THE Tigers really have a shot at the American League title
now," said Kennedy. "About the only way they could blow it would be if they
played .400 ball the second half of the season and some other ball club played
at an .840 clip."
Willie Horton's booming bat and a bit of A's strategy that backfired gave
the Tigers the opener.
Denny McLain, who became the Major League's winningest pitcher with a
16-2 mark, tangled in a eight-inning duel with Lew Krause with each giving
up four runs and five hits over that distance.
Tiger pitcher Joe Sparma, who got a long-sustained booing when he was
introduced as the starting pitcher in the second game, was not too generous
with base hits but he was wild, giving up four walks in five innings.
Sparma, however, claimed his seventh victory against eight losses with
relief help from Mickey Lolich, John Hiller, and Fred Lahser.

July 7-Tigers 5-7, A's 4-6
DETROIT (AP)-Detroit Tigers' manager Mayo Smith is not staking out
any claim on a World Series berth yet but he is getting a lot of telephone calls
from friends he had not seen for 20 years.
"Nobody has asked for any tickets yet, but I get the feeling some of them
are building up to it," said Smith, as he relaxed in his dressing room after
the Tigers squeaked by the Oakland A's twice yesterday. -
THE DOUBLE WIN gave the Detroiters a 9 -game lead over second
place Cleveland and even Smith, not one to go out on a limb with predictions,
