The Tiger second baseman led off the game with a solo shot, then hit one of the three Detroit homers in a five-run fourth inning. Tuesday night against the Yankees, Whitaker also had two homers. His week of home run derby gives him 1 1 for the season, his career high, but it's only part of his story since the All-Star break. After Friday night's game, he's hitting .414 since the halfway mark.

He's .492 for August. Whitaker says a big part of his hitting splurge has been the confidence he's gotten from batting leadoff, which he has been doing since July 6. "It gives me one at-bat to get myself set," he said. "I used to Just have to wait around for three innings." HE'S GETTING to the plate more, too. "I'm getting at least four at-bats a game.

When I was batting seventh, eighth or ninth, I only got three at-bats and now I sometimes get five." Whitaker has no secret for his new-found power his previous best for a year was his five homers of last season. However, he says he is more patient at the plate and is not lunging for pitches the way he used to. "I just take my time and wait to get one good pitch. That's all you need, that one good pitch," he said. Whitaker surprised himself with his first homer it went to left field, the first one the left-handed hitter can Free Press Photo bv ALAN KAMUDA Milt Wilcox (above) loads the bases in the fourth inning Friday night; he survives, but Pat Underwood takes over in the sixth.

The win may have been costly, however, as Montreal starter David Palmer was forced from the game in the third inning with a strained right elbow. With two out in the second inning, Tim Wallach walked off loser Mike Krukow (11-7). After Chris Speier walked, Flynn tripled down the left field line to make the score 2-0.

WILCOX STRUCK out two Royals in the first, two more in the second and one each in the next three innings. "Most of the pitches they were swinging at in the dirt were my split-finger fastball," the veteran explained.

"Any time you've got a good (regular) fastball like I had tonight, they've got to be looking for it. And the split-finger will get them when it's working good." Kansas City got a runner to third on Lance Parrish's throwing error in the first inning, and Wilcox's most anxious moment came in the fourth when a hit and a pair of walks New York 4, CHICAGO 3: Rick Cerone's leadoff homer in the pretty good," he said.
