from behind and nosed out the'
Tigers 5-4 yesterday, sweeping the
two-game season opening series.
With all other American League
teams idle, the victory gave last
year's cellar-dwelling A's undis-
puted possession of first place for
at least one day.
Uses Four Pitchers
Freshman manager Jack Tighe
used four pitchers in a vain effort
to choke off the hard-hitting Kan-
sas City club and earn his first
major league victory. But the Ath-
letics got to two of them for 10
hits, including home runs by Hec-
tor Lopez and Harry Simpson and
[a triple by Bob Cerv. That was
enough to win.
Former Tiger Ned Garver, who
came to Kansas City in a Decem-
ber trade, was wild at the start
and spotted Detroit three runs in
the first inning on a hit batsman,
two walks and a base-clearing
The A's picked up two runs and
shelled Detroit's starter, Jim Bun-
ning, from the hill in the first,r
then went ahead in the third on
Lopez' and Simpson's homers off
reliefer Duke Maas who absorbed
Garver again got into trouble in
the fourth and was lifted for Bur-
nette who gave up only two hits for
the remainder of the game. He
fanned two and gave up three
walks in earning the victory.
Garver allow only four hits, but
walked three men and hit Jim
Finigan's shirt. He struck out two.
In the fourth, the veteran, who
is attempting a comeback after
being out nearly all of last season
with arm trouble, gave Boone a
lead-off single; then, with two out,
Maas singled, scoring Boone, and
Garver was jerked. Burnette end-
came back in its half of the fourth
to score the winning run. With two
men out, Cerv bounced a triple off
the right field fence and scored on
shortstop Joe DeMaestri's single to
ST. LOUIS (AP)-Stan The Man
Musian, just 47 games from the
National League consecutive game
record, has a muscle injury in his
back and may miss the St. Louis
Cardinals' home opener with the
Chicago Cubs tonight.
The 36-yr.-old Musial suffered
the injury during his big 4-for-4
hitting day in the opening victory
Yesterday's game with the Red-
legs was rained out, giving Musial
"If we had played," trainer Bob
Bauman said, "I don't think Stan
would have been able to go."
Bauman said whirlpool and ul-
tra-sonic treatments helped some-
what, but added "the way it look-

intense, desire to play, I reserve

With 775 straight games behind
him, Stan is closing in on Gur
Suhr's league record of 822.
Manager Fred Hutchinson didn't

him why he hadn't been informed

Assn. Giles also will give souve-
nirs to the Dodgers, commemo-
rating their pennant victory in

burgh in their first game and
washed out of a second, face the
Phillies at the Polo Grounds
where 15,000 are expected.

kees home with them for a gala
opener at Fenway Park where
