For the second straight game bevween the Detroit Tigers and Boston Red Sox, a catcher committed a misplay that led to his team's undoing. Wednesday night Detroit was undone, 5-4. With runners on first and second and two out in,the Boston fourth, Rick Miller swung and missed for a third strike. But the ball bounced off catcher Gene Lament's glove, hit his knee and rolled about 10 feet away. Miller was safe at first and the Red Sox went on to score five runs, providing the cushion for Luis Tiant's 16th victory. "He just kicked it with his knee," Detroit Manager Ralph Houk said of Lament's passed ball. "It was just one of those things."
