By JIM DWORMAN
Specialto the Daily
DETROIT - The Captain forgot his
Tiger manager Sparky Anderson,
known as "Captain Hook" for his quick
removal of pitchers, left his first two on
the mound a bit too long as the Califor-
nia Angels ended Detroit's eight game
win streak by pounding out a 9-7 win
over the Tigers.
PAT UNDERWOOD, a Detroit star-
ter, was shelled for two runs in each of
the first, third, and fourth innings. The
southpaw gave up home runs to Bobby
Grich and Bob Boone before Anderson
removed him at the start of the fifth in-
Underwood's successor Aurelio
Lopez, faired no better. Anderson

ters, but not before Tim Foli and Fred
Lynn delivered RBI singles for the

and a third scoreless innings hbefore
yielding to Elias Sosa who shut down
the Angels in the ninth.

lead in the opening inning on singles by
Brian Downing and Rod Carew, a wild
pitch by Underwood, and a double to
left center off the bat of Don Baylor.
Detroit left fielder Larry Herndon
raced back towards center on Baylor's
double, dove for the ball, and got his
glove on it, but could not hold on to what
would have been the inning's final out.
The Tigers came back with one run in
the second on Herndon's single, a walk to
John Wockenfuss, and an RBI single by
California increased its lead to 4-1 in
the thrid when Grich blasted the ball in-
to the right field stands with Rod Carew

tom of the inning when Enos Cabell

off Lopez in the fifth, but the Tigers
were not done.

mark against the Blue Jays to 13-4 as
Baltimore put together its first three-

Bobby Unser to skip
this year's Indly 500
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Defending champion Bobby Unser said yesterday he will
skip this year's Indianapolis 500 to fulfill an obligation he now wishes he hadn't
made to be team manager for driver Josele Garza.
"It's the toughest thing I've done in 33 years of racing," said Unser, the first Indy
winner in 24 years to miss the next year's race.
UNSER, WHOSE 19 Indy starts are second only to 25-year-veteran A. J. Foyt,
said he had joined the Garza team in disillusionment over the furor following his
third Indy victory a year ago.
The 48-year-old Unser appeared to choke back his emotions several times during
a hastily assembled news conference at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway the day
before the final weekend of qualifications for the May 30 race.
"There is a lot of sadness in Bobby Unser. I've waited too long," he said. "It's not
fair to a car owner at this point to wait any longer for my decision. I'm just not
going to run here this year."
SPECULATION HAD run high all month the Unser would jump into one of
several backup cars available to him to make a qualifying attempt after the 23-
year-old Garza was safely in the race. But Garza, last year's top Indy rookie,
crashed during a practice session prior to last weekend's time trials and Unser
spent most of the week testing the car.
"That put us a long way behind," Unser said. "Maybe that messed up any idea I
had of driving right there. But I wasn't sure of it at the time.
"This does not mean I'm retired," he added. "It's just that I feel an obligation to
the Garza team. I don't feel now that I'm ready to stop driving, but I have a com-
mitment to Josele. I really have an open deal with them. I can do anything I want
to, but I feel I havean obligation to run the team."
Unser indicated he will drive in other championship car races this season after
the Garza team is running smoothly. "There's not any doubt about that," he said.
