Tigers to 5-2 win

By JOE DEVYAK
Special to the Daily
DETROIT - Jack Morris collected
eight strikeouts on the way to posting
his sixth victory against five defeats
as the Tigers bested the Mariners 5-2,
last night.
Alex Sanchez's fourth homerun of
the year broke a 2-2 tie in the fourth
inning. The four bagger came off of
Seattle starter and loser Mark
Langston.
Morris got stronger as the game
progressed after allowing single runs
in the first and third innings.
Things didn't start out very well for
the Detroit ace however. Leadoff bat-
ter Jack Perconte bunted to start the
game and third baseman Tom
Brookens threw wildly to first
allowing Perconte to advance to third.
Sanchez, the right fielder, then com-
mitted the 2nd error on the play as he
threw the ball past Brookens,
allowing Perconte to scamper home.
The Tigers quickly struck back in
their half of the inning as Barbaro
Garbey's bases loaded single brought
across two runs. Alan Trammel, who
had singled, and Kirk Gibson, who
had doubled, both scored.

Seattle's Phil Bradley knotted the
score in the third as he homered off
the facing of the upper deck in left
center field.
After Sanchez's blast broke the tie,
the Tigers added two more runs. A
Trammell double scoring Lou
Whitaker, who had walked, tallied a
run in the fifth. In the sixth, Brookens
atoned for his earlier miscue with his
first homerun of the 1985 campaign.

Lendl, Conj
semifinals
PARIS (UPI) - Ivan Lendl and
Jimmy Connors each defeated young
opponents in straight sets yesterday
to set up a semifinal meeting in the
French Open tennis championships.
Lendl, the second seed, and defen-
ding champion, wore down unseeded
Martin Jaite of Argentina in unin-
spiring fashion, taking 2 hours and 44
minutes for a 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 victory.
THIRD-seeded Connors had to con-
tend with a 55-minute rain break -
the first of the Championships - at5-5
in the third set. But when play
resumed he took only 11 minutes more
to dispatch 19-year-old Stefan Edberg
of Sweden, the 14th seed, 6-4, 6-3, 7-6
(7-2).
Lendl showed patience with Jaite's
baseline game, waiting for the 20-
year-old to make mistakes. Connors
was equally cunning in countering the
serve and volley style of Edberg.
"I played some very tight, good
solid tennis," Connors said after
reaching his fourth semifinal at the
French Open, the only Grand Slam
tournament he has never won.
"Rain delays are difficult, but today
worked for me. I kinda didn't feel like
coming back and playing but I won
the match."
