Detroit Hits Homers, Lead Swells to By HAL BOCK Associated Press Sports Writer The Great Hit Famine took a back seat Thursday to an old fashioned Fourth of July fireworks show of home runs in Detroit. Jim Northrup, Norm Cash and Don Mincher took turns hitting baseballs out of sight and when tlvy were through, the T1 gers had a 13-10 slugfest victory over California. It was the fourth straight triumph for the Tigers and ninth in the last 10 games, giving the man 8% game lead over the rest of the American League. Northrup and Cash had two homers each for the Tigers and Mincher two for the Angels. Willie Horton and Bill Freehan also connected for Detroit and Jim Fregosi for California as the two teams used up 11 pitchers. Elsewhere in the American League, Baltimore edged Chicago 4-3 in 12 innings, Cleveland dropped Minnesota 6-3, Boston defeated Oakland 7-2 and Washington whipped New York 4-2. The Angels scored four fast runs in the second inning with Mincher tagging his first homer and it looked like it might be a good day for Bill Kegney's club. But the Tigers bounced right back with their biggest inning of the year, scoring nine runs in the bottom of the second with homers by Cash, Freehan and Horton lading the attack. Northrup had a two-run triple and D'fk McAuliffe a two-run double in the big inning.

McLain, the league's only 15- game winner, said Wednesday night that the Detroit pitching rotation calls for him to go Sunday. He said if he pitches then he win be unable to pitch in the All-Star Game. "We'll make adjustments, I'm sure, but this is something I think should be handled by Mr. Cronin's office," Williams said. He referred to AL President Joe Cronin, who was not available for comment. Williams said that as of the moment Luis Tiant of Cleveland wffl be the starting pitcher. He added, "However, it an depends on who pitches Sunday, the type of games pitchers are in and how long they go." Williams had to make a shift in his AU-Star staff Thursday when his ace, Jose Santiago, had to leave a game with Oakland in the third inning because of tendonitis in the right elbow. Subject to approval by Cronin, Williams named right-hander Gary BeU, owner of a 6-3 record and a 2.73 earned run average, to replace Santiago, who must rest his afling arm.

Kutis took a 2-0 lead in the second inning with Pat Dineen tripling In one run then scoring for the other run.

The Hawkettes added another run in Hie seventh and Decatur's dream had turned into a nightmare. The game was a comedy of errors on both teams' part. Would you believe 12 errors by Manchester in the first inning, six in each frame? It happened as the Windettes sent 17 batters to the plate in the first two frames.
