Lee Stange shut out the A's at Fenway, to keep the Red Sox in the race and ahead of the hard-charging Twins. Mister Stange's e.r.a. dipped below 2 with the whitewash. Acquired in '66 by the Bosox from Cleveland along with fireman Don McMahon in exchange for the now embalmed and forgotten Dick Radatz, Mr. Stange came cheap and has paid off big.
The Nats dropped their ceremonial 100th loss in typical style, being shut out for the mind-boggling 28th time this season. They exploded for three hits, all singles. It can't end soon enough for them.
The Tigers, in command seemingly all season, are staggering to the finish line! Stormin' Norman Cash has been beset by a series of minor injuries which have had him in and out of the line-up, and the Tigers suddenly look human. A Curt Blefary hit undid Dave Wickersham and the Bengals. Wick was brought in to a tie game instead of Mike Marshall, who has seen his e.r.a. balloon from under 2 to over 4 in recent weeks, while Wick's was under 2 until Mr. Blefary ruined it all for him. Stu "Mrs. Miller" Miller picked up the win and sang some of your favorite tunes afterwards, in celebration.
