Special to the Daily
DETROIT - Dr, Longball made an encore performance
last night in Tiger Stadium.
After appearing twice in regular innings, the home run
reappeared off the bat of Greg Luzinski to lead off the 12th
inning and propel the Chicago White Sox to a 9-3 victory over
LUZINSKI cracked a Dave Tobik delivery off the facing of
the upper deck in deep left-center to break a 3-3 deadlock and
pave the way for five more Chicago runs.
Vance Law, Bill Almon, Rudy Law (two) and Steve Kemp
also knocked in runs off reliever Elias Sosa in the 12th.
The Tigers didn't put together much of a comeback in their
half of the 12th. Alan Trammell ripped a single off pitcher
Salome Barojas with one out, but he was left stranded as Lou
Whitaker flied out to center and Tom Brookens struck out
CHICAGO'S FIRST three runs also came courtesy of Dr.
Longball. The good Dr., who so frequently visits the Tigers
when Jerry Ujder (last night's starter) pitches, appeared in
the person of Tom Paciorek.
The White Sox' first baseman, a Detroit native, put on a
show for his family and friends. Paciorek unloaded two home
runs. The first was a fourth-inning solo shot that just cleared
the wall in left. The second, a game-tying, eighth-inning
blast, landed in the upper deck and scored Luzinski from fir-
Paciorek also added a single and followed Luzinski's game-
winner with a double to cap a four-for-five performance.
The Tigers struck first, knocking White Sox starter Jerry
Koosman for three runs in the third inning. Trammell started
the attack by doubling down the left-field line. He moved to
third on Whitaker's bounce out and scored when Tom
Brookens lined a base hit to right.
Brookens advanced to third when Chicago center fielder
Rudy Law bobbled Larry Herndon's single. Both runners
crossed the plate when Lance Parrish slapped a Koosman
pitch off the wall in the right-field corner.

Red Sox, 6-3
BOSTON (AP)- Jim Sundberg and Dave Hostetler each drove in two runs as the
Texas Rangers snapped a seven-game losing streak with a 6-3 victory over the
Boston Red Sox last night.
Sundberg drove in a run with a single in the first inning, then broke a 3-3 tie in the
fourth with his sixth homer of the season, a drive into the left-field screen.
Charlie Hough earned the victory to move his record to 8-8. He pitched seven in-
nings, giving up nine hits and three earned runs.
Dennis Eckersly took the loss, dropping his record to 10-8. He went the full nine
innings, giving up 10 hits and six earned runs.
Astros 2, Cubs 1
CHICAGO (AP)- Nolan Ryan and two relievers combined to stop Chicago on
seven hits yesterday and Houston took advantage of Allen Ripley's wildness as the
Astros edged the Cubs 2-1.
Ryan, 10-9, pitched five shut-out innings, striking out four and walking four. Mike
LaCoss came on in the sixth after Ryan complained of a sore hip and took himself
out of the game. Frank LaCorte finished up, earning his second save of the season.
HOUSTON SCORED quickly in the first when Dickie Thon led off with a triple off
the vine-covered wall in left field. He came home one out later on a wild pitch by
} The Astros made the score 2-0 in the sixth when Danny Heep reached first on a
fielder's choice, moved to second on Phil Garner's single then went to third on
Ripley's second wild pitch. Art Howe ripped a single to left that scored Heep but
Garner, attempting to score from second, was cut down at the plate by Cubs' left
fielder Keith Moreland.
The Cubs got their only run in the eighth on a leadoff homer by Leon Durham, his
13th of the season.
Mets 6, Giants 2
SAN FRANCISCO (AP)- Mookie Wilson pounded out three hits, including two
doubles, and drove in two runs, as the New York Mets defeated the San Francisco
Giants 6-2 yesterday.
Wilson led off the game with a double and eventually scored the Mets' first run.
An inning later, he drove home two more with his second double.
IT WAS ONLY New York's fourth victory against San Francisco this season, but
the third against rookie right-hander Bill Laskey, 7-8.
Pete Falcone, 6-6, pitched five innings for the Mets and Jesse Orosco who earned
his first save by shutting down the Giants on three hits the rest of the way.
Wilson opened with a double and reached third when Jack Clark bobbled the ball
in right field for an error. He scored when Wally Backman followed with an infield
