Tiant was cuffed around for 11 hits in 7 1/3 innings Sunday and was sent packing when Minnesota erupted for six runs in the eighth inning. By then, though. Boston had given the veteran right-hander an eight-run cushion. So the Red Sox held on .for,, a 9-6 triumph and Tiant became the only pitcher in the major l e a g u e s with 19 : wins.

"But my gut feeling now is hat these problems will be a unifying factor. I think our players will tighten their belts low and play with more determination." The Irish problems include Tippling injuries to at least hree starters, and four other irst-lin* players who were among six dismissed from school for violating university rules.
