Score Seven Times In First Two Innings BALTIMORE (UPi)-Remem- ber the story about the sinking Birds? Well the plot's changed --they sank the Detroit Tigers.

That's right, the Tigers arei are back in second who knows how long. And when they slipped to the second slot, they did it in style. A shocking 9 0 loss to the Baltimore Orioles. The Tigers went to Baltimore confident of burying the Orioles. On the way to the game Thursday night, the Bengals were whooping it up on the bus on the way to the ballpark, bellowing out the windows at unsuspecting pedestrians and generally behaving like a team on its way to a title.

The Birds began the bottom of the first with singles by Bobby Grich and Paul Blair, followed immediately Tommy Davis' two run double that found Scherman staring at the floor in the locker room. The hot hitting O's eliminated Slayback in the second inning runs to four over the Tigers nothing.

Baltimore didn't get another run until the bottom of the eighth as Joe Niekro and Lerrin LaGrow strung together five scoreless innings. Meanwhile, the Tigers never had more than one man on base at a time as Cueliar pitched possibly his best--and possibly his easiest--game of the year. Woody Fryman, 4-2, tries to put the Tigers back in the No.
