serious blow Wednesday after
noon. Don Hubbard, star Indian hurd

Thev served up a total of one hit
a single yet they needed a
three-run homer by EdUle Robin
son to top Detroit. 6-3.
Of course, there's a gimmick,
nine bases on balls and three er
rors made it close. It turned out
that the hit Aaron Robinson's
single in the fourth didn't fig
ure in the scoring.
Calvert was forcd to retire in
the seventh because of a blistered
finger. Weik walked four in a
row and was derricked in the
seventh. And Thompson was lift
ed for a pinch-hitter in the eighth.
