Cleveland needed a walk, stolen base, passed ball and an error to get one run and Larry Brown homered for the other. But the Orioles, who humbled the Indians 11-0 the night before, won this one on Boog Powell's first homer that broke a 2-2 deadlock in the fifth inning. Boston, on the other hand, showed little affect from losing the American League's run batted in champion of 1968 as Mike Andrews. Rico Petrocelli and Carl Yastrzcmski slammed solo homers and Tony Conigliaro belted a three-run shot in the fourth, breaking a 2-2 tic.

Detroit was having hitting troubles against Camilo Pascual, who had a one-hitter-- Bill Frechan's homer-- entering the ninth inning before the Tigers broke loose. Pinch hitter Tom Matchick opened the ninth with a hit and Gates Brown, another pinch hitter, walked.

After a mandatory eight count, Zyglewicz was doubled over with a right and then lashed with another left hook and it was all over. "I never felt nobody hit as hard." said Zyglewicz. "He's real fast. I never saw the knockout punch coming." Frazier said, "There's nobody I can't beat. He (Zyglewicz) has R lot of heart. I think he was a good fighter to get up."
