Detroit Fans After 7 Losses Have Had It DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Tigers have had their warning— their fans are fed up. Seven losses in eight games are costing the owners money and will cost them much more unless the club can pull out fast from the early tailspin. There were 12.935 spectators on hand Tuesday night as Cleveland walloped Detroit 14-1. Many of them booed manager Bill Norman and starting pitcher Paul Poytack when the Indians routed the Tiger right-hander in the first inning. Norman got the treatment in the seventh when he replaced George Susce, and again in the ninth when the Indians routed Hank Aguirre. When the public address man announced that the brand new Tiger yearbooks are on sale, the hooting of the fans practically drowned out his voice. The crowd booed ex-Tiger Billy Martin, too, but the fiery little second baseman had the last laugh. One spectator near the Cleveland dugout shouted to Mar tin "You're'lousy, Martin. You're not hitting." Martin replied: "It's a good thing I'm not. It' embarrassing enough with all these other guys hitting." This was a belligerent crowd and the attendance — which dropped more than 173,000 last season—is apt to show an even sharper decline. The Tigers' faltering starts are fast becoming a baseball legend Only one first division finish ir eight seasons has the fans moan ing and there is evidence they are •going to be a lot slower with the dollar at the box office unless the do something except say 'til next year." Young Fielder Keeps Dodgers On Spree By ED W1LKS Associated Press Sports Writer Don Demeter. a kid who has )een a long time coming, and Art Bowler, an old guy trying to come jack, have the long lost Los Angeles Dodgers siltin' pretty in the National League. Demeter, at 23 a lean and lanky outfielder who was signed as a favor to two other kids, ripped his ;hird two-run homer of the game n the llth inning Tuesday night at the Coliseum for a 9-7 victory over the San Francisco Giants, bowler, at 36 returning to the majors after being cut loose by the Eleds two years ago,-collected his second relief victory with the blast. That gave the Dodgers « four- game winning streak, and kept them injsecond place, within .133 percentage points of first place Milwaukee. The Braves stayed on top by whipping Cincinnati 7-4 as Warren All the Dodger runs came on homers. Don Zimmer's first of the season was a two-on .shot in a r ive-run third that got rolling on Demeter's inside-the-park homer. Felipe Alou and Jackie Brandt tiomered for the Giants, who tied it 7-all with four runs in the fifth. Demeter's payoff, homer came off reliever Al Worthington (1-1), who allowed only two hits in his 4 1-3 innings as the fourth Giant pitcher. Fowler, dumped by Cincinnati in 1957, relieved starter Stan Williams in the San Francisco fifth. He gave up two hits and the tying run, then blanked San Francisco the rest of the way. The stubby right-hander has worked 18 1-3 relief innings in five games for the Dodgers. His strikeout total of 18 is second only to teammate Don Drysdale's 25. Spahn won his second.
