Coleman, Hie Tigers' ace right-hander who won 20 games a year ago, reached the halfway point toward the magic number Thursday night with a six-hit, six-strikeout performance, a 7-0 shutout over Kansas City Roy- als that halted Detroit's four- game skid. In other American League games, Baltimore Orioles nosed out Chicago White Sox 2-1, New York Yankees beat Oakland Athletics 6-2, Milwaukee Brew- ers clipped California Angels 6-5 and, in a twi-night double- header, Cleveland Indians swept Texas Rangers 4-3 and 6-5 in 12 innings. Boston and Minnesota were not scheduled. "I'll have 40 or 42 Coleman said, looking at the baseball schedule, "and with our hitting and defence, I ought to win half of them. "If we've done this well with- out hitting, what'll happen when we break loose" he mused. "And this club will break loose. We hit the ball good tonight, and this just might pull us out of it." The Tigers battered five Roy- als pitchers for 13 hits en route to the triumph that kept them within two games of the front- running Orioles in the East Minnesota Twins of the Am- erican League fired Bill Rig- ney as manager Thursday and and named coach Frank Qull- ici as his replacement. Rigney was named manager of the Twins in 1970, replacing Billy Martin after he had led Minnesota to a divisional championship in 1969. Quilici, 33, retired as an ac- tive player in 1970 and joined the Twins as coach for the 1971 season. Rigney, H, had managed New York Giants and San Francisco Giants of the Nation- al League and California Ang- els of the American League be- fore moving to Minnesota in 1970. Meanwhile In the senior league Steve San Diego's pitch- ing dentist, must have given New York Mets a dose of sleep- ing gas Thursday night. But when the Padres finally got around to operating on Arlln's baseball patients, it was any- thing but painless. Arlin pitched 10 brilliant In- nings, allowing only one hit be- fore turning the Mets over to reliever Gary Ross, who permit- ted just one more hit in four innings. Finally, the Padres pushed across a run on a bas- es-loaded walk in the 14th for a 1-0 victory. Arlin, who holds a degree In dentistry, matched zeroes with the Mets' Jerry Koosman for 10 innings before Hoss and New York reliever Tug McGraw took over. By then, the Mets were mesmerized and they never did wake up. In other National League games Thursday night, San Francisco Giants topped Phila- delphia Phillies 64 in 10 in- nings, Los Angeles Dodgers wal- loped Montreal Expos 11'3, At- lanta Braves edged Chicago Cubs 4-3 and Pittsburgh Pirates beat Houston Astros 7-3 In 17 innings. Cincinnati and St. Louis were not scheduled. Despite the outstanding pilch- ing of Arlin and Ross, the Mets were still tied In the 14th be- cause the Padres had been un- able to cash in on any earlier scoring opportunities. When they loaded the bases with none out on two singles and a field- er's choice at the start of the I4lh, it looked as if there was no way they couldn't score. But they almost didn't. McGraw got Nate Colbert on a force play at the plate and then struck out Clarence Gas- ton. But Jerry Morale: waited out a walk to force horhe the run San Diego needed. The Mets almost got it back In the bottom o[ the 14th when Bud Harrelson walked, moved up on a wild pitch and a sacri- fice and then, with two out, tried to score on a short passed ball. But catcher Pat Corrales recovered in time and threw to Ross, covering the plate, to catch Harrelson. Harrelson was convinced h e was safe and was seething aft- erwards. "I think it's time somebody took a look at the he snapped. "Why don't they take eye tests. How come so many people wear glasses but yon never see an umpire wiLb The Giants beat the Phillies In the lOLh inning when Tito Fuentes unloaded a two-run tri- ple. The winning rally started wilh a two-out walk to Dave Kingman and aflcr Domain Blanco singled, Fuentes deliv- ered his big hit.
