Uie Cleveland Indians find themselves standing in the way of The Streak. The Milwaukee Brewers' Paul Molitor savaged the Indians last weekend with 10 hits in 20 at- bats. Molitor takes along his 38- game hitting streak tonight to face Cleveland's Ken Schrorn in the opener of a three-game series A hit in each game of the set would move Molitor past Ty Cobb. who hit in -?0 straight games in I'vil, and into a tie with George Sisler for the third- longest hitting streak of the century in major league baseball. Sisler hit in-11 in a row in 1922, The only players wiih longer consecutive-game batting streaks this century are Cincinnati's Pete Rose. 14 games in 1978, and the New York Yankees' Joe DiMaggio. whose »G-game streak in 19-11 has long been thought to be unbreakable It was the Indians who halted DiMaggio 40 years ago. "Cleveland's staff is; sort of a young staff and it makes it a little difficult when you haven't faced these pitchers a lot." Molitor said during an off-day on Monday. Molitor is 3-for-6 with five RBI this season against Schrom. who is 5-10 and has a 6:53 earned-run average. He had two doubles in three at-bats and drove in three runs against the right-hander last week. "I've had some success against Kenny, but he's had his days where he's given me trouble as well. If will just be a matter of getting ahead in the count and getting some good pitches to hit." Molitor said. The Indians' other scheduled starters are Rich Y.ett. 2-5. and Scott Bailes. 6-6. Molitor has not faced Yett this season, but had his troubles last week against Bailes. His only hit in four appearances against Bailes last weekend was a bunt single. In the 38 games. Molitor has 67 hits in 160 at-bats. a healthv .419 average. For the season, he is hitting .371 and only a lack of plate appearances — he missed 44 games \vith injuries — keeps his name off the: top of the American League batting list. Boston's Wade Boggs leads with a .362 average. While the nation's baseball fans watch him. all Molitor can do is study the opposing pitcher. "You just focus on who you're going to face rather than who you'd rather not face." Molitor said. "But you just try to maintain your own style and not adjust too much to what pitcher is out there on the hill." Brewers catcher Bill Schroeder. who has been there throughout Molitor's streak, isn't so sure that DiMaggio's record is beyond reach. "Everybody says it can't be done, that it's the one record that will never be broken." Schroeder said. "Who says it can't? He sprays the ball all oven He's the kind of hitter who can do it." By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Steve Lombardozzi says none of the Minnesota Twins is Superman. They just seem more powerful than a locomotive and faster than a speeding bullet when playing at home at the Metrodome. , Kent Hrbek's bases-loaded single with one put in the ninth jnning Monday night; scored Lombardozzi and gave Minnesota a 5-4 victory over Detroit, snapping the Twins' six-game losing streak. The Twins, first in the American League West by two games over Oakland, had lost all six games on the road in Detroit and Boston. They are now 43-18 at the Metrodome and 24-42 on the road. "It's a big night just to put an end to the skid," Lombardozzi said. "We had a talk before the game and nobody was going to try to be Superman. We are all in this together." Reliever Eric King, 6-9, gave up a leadoff single to Lombardozzi. King wasirelieved by Willie Hernandez, ! and Randy Bush advanced Lombardozzi to second with i a sacrifice. Al Newman followed with a single sending Lombardozzi to third and Kirby Puckett was intentionally walked. Hrbek then lined Hernandez's first pitch to center field to score the winning run.. i Jeff Reardon, 6-6! pitched the final inning for the victory. Blue Jays J.'. .... 7 Mariners... 3 Ernie Whitt and Tony Fernandez hit home runs as Toronto defeated Seattle at the Kingdome to move into a virtual tie for first place with Detroit in AMERICAN LEAGUE the AL East. The Tigers have a percentage of .593 and Toronto is at .592. Toronto starter John Cerutti, 10 : 3, took a six-hit shutout into the eighth, but Jim Presley hit a run-scoring triple and Dave Valle homered to make it 7-3.
