CLEVELAND (AP)- Len Barker
pitched a four-hitter and struck out 11
batters, and Rick Manning homered
and doubled as the Cleveland Indians
blanked the Detroit Tigers, 5-0, in the
first game of a twi-night doubleheader
last night.
Barker, 8-3, lowered his earned run
average to 2.49 in hurling his first
shutout and fifth complete game of the
season. He walked two and recorded at
least one strikeout in each inning in
helping the Indians snap a five-game
losing streak, the team's longest this
year.
THE INDIANS took a 2-0 lead in the
second against Jack Morris, 8-6. Andre
Thornton walked, took third on Man-
ning's double and scored on Alan Ban-
nister's infield single. One out later,
Mike Fischlin singled Manning home.
Manning's homer in the third, his
fourth of the season, scored Ron
Hassey, who had singled. The Indians
chased Morris in the fourth when
Miguel Dilone walked and moved to
third on Fischlin's double. After
reliever Kevin Saucier walked Toby
Harrah intentionally, Von Hayes was
hit by a pitch to score Dilone.
In the second game, the Tigers and
Indians were deadlocked at one in the
seventh inning. Larry Herndon hit his
12th home run of the year in the fourth
inning.
Cubs 12, Phillies 1 1
CHICAGO (AP) - Bump Wills
collected four hits, including a three-
run homer, to highlighta 19-hit Chicago
assault against five Philadelphia pitch-
ers yesterday afternoon as the Cubs
snapped their 13-game losing streak
with a wild 12-11 victory over the
Phillies.
The losing streak tied the Cubs' all-
time record for futility set in 1944. The
last Chicago victory this season was a 3-
2 triumph over the Los Angeles Dodges
n May 29.
THE CUBS made this one look easy,
and hard, as they ruffed up
Philadelphia starter Steve Carlton for
six runs in just over three innings of
work and also committed six errors to
help the Phillies get back into the game.
Carlton, who last Wednesday
defeated Chicago with a 16-strikeout
performance, was touched for five runs
in the second inning.
Chicago starter Ferguson Jenkins, 4-
8, had a no-hitter working in the fifth
when Mike Schmidt and Bo Diaz
reached on errors by Bowa and San-
dberg, two of six committed by
Chicago. Garry Maddox followed with
a double to spoil the no-hitter and
shutout, and two more runs scored on
sacrifice flies by Ivan DeJesus and
George Vukovich.

Orioles 9, Brewers 4
BALTIMORE (AP) - Dan Ford cap-
ped a five-run seventh-inning outburst
with a pinch-hit, gramd-slam homer last
night, propelling the streaking altimore
Orioles past the Milwaukee Brewers, 9-4.
The Orioles have now won eight of their
last nine games, clouting 18 homers
during that stretch, including Joe
Nolan's solo homer in the third against
the Brewers.
WITH THE score tied, 4-4, Lenn Sakata
reached first on third baseman Paul
Molitor's error to open the seventh. Al
Bumbry then beat out a bunt, and both
runners advanced on Rich Dauer's hit-
and-run groundout. Ken Singleton was
walked intentionally to load the bases,
but Milwaukee starter Moose Haas, 3-4,
then walked Eddie Murray on five pit-
ches to put Baltimore ahead 5-4.
Ford, who had not played since pulling
a hamstring muscle last Thursdaybatted
for John Lowenstein and homered on a 1-
2 pitch from reliever Jamie Easterly.
Run-scoring singles by Charlie Moore
and Jim Gantner with two outs in the
seventh pulled the Brewers into a 4-4 tie.
Gantner also had a two-run single in the
second.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP)- A special judge heard 20
minutes of arguments yesterday in a $12 million lawsuit
against Clemson football coach Danny Ford that defense
lawyers want dismissed.
James Cofer and Terry Minor, two former Knoxville high
school athletes, filed the lawsuit last fall, alleging recruiting
violations.
CHANCELLOR William Inman postponed a decisioni on the
request for dismissal until later this week.
The lawsuit is against Ford; Billy Ware, the school's for-
mer recruiting specialist; Knoxville businessman Tom
Breazeale; the Atlantic Coast Conference and its com-
missioner, Bob James.
Cofer and Minor signed with Clemson in 1981.
CHANGING their minds that spring, they were released
from ACC grants. But officials of the Southeastern Conferen-
ce, of which Tennessee is a member, said neither would be
eligible to sign with Tennessee or any other SEC school.
Cofer and Minor had said they were paid up to $1,000 by
Breazeale, a Clemson alumnus, and allege in their lawsuit
that they were promised other things, including television
sets, refrigerators and entertainment "such as that provided
by Clemson University recruiting hostesses known as Bengal
Babes."

NEW YORK (AP)- Chet Simmons, current president of
