It was Tiant's 15th victory of the season and llth triumph in his last 12 decisions. Jim Palmer, 21-10, took the loss. The Tigers kept pace, bomb- ing three Milwaukee pitchers for 11 runs in the first three in- nings and coasting past the Brewers. Jim Northrup led the romp with five runs batted in. Willie Horton contribuled a two-run triple to trigger the Ti- ger barrage and Tony Taylor added a two-run pinch double. Roberto Clemente thought he had it. Then he didn't.

Follmer, a Is driving the a Porsche 917-10K which features a 12-cyI- inrler air-cooled lurbocharged engine extracting more than 900 horsepower from five litres. Hutme, a New Zealander who has won the last four Can-Am races here, is driving the a McLaren Mark 20 which is powered by a hulking seven-litre Chevrolet 18 putting out about 300 horsepower. Follmer was clocked at one minute 18.5 seconds during practice Thursday on a dry track but was unable to im- prove on this Friday because of light rain. Hulme's time was Although there is a vast horsepower difference between the Porsches and McLarens, the reason the tims are so close is that the Team McLaren entries are more aerodynamic; they're not running Into a wall of air at high speeds. Follmcr, who leads the nine- race series for Group 7 cars after six events, has 78 points while Milt Minler, another Cali- fornia driver in a Vasek Polak Porsche 917-10, is second with 55. Hulme, who holds the com- petition renord on the 2.527-mile road circuit here, set during last year's race, is third with 50 and Francois Cevert, a French gand prix diver who won the fifth ace in this year's Can-Am series, is fourth with 47. Mark Donohue of Media, Pa., Follmer's team-mate in another Roger Penske-enlered Porsche, is not In the standings because of a crash in July while testing a race car. Still bothered by a knee injury in the crash which destroyed bis car and sent him to hospital with multiple In- juries, he crashed in the last Can-Am race but Salked away from that one. Hulme's team-mate, Peter Revson, also hns had more than his share of mechanical prohlems this factor Team _McLaren hasn't had to cope with in past season. Minter, a Can-Am regular for several seasons, is having his best year and is a definite threat if his luck holds out. Ce- yert, a dark horso because this is his first year in the big-bore sports racers, has a third-place finish and a second as well as his win Sept. 17 at Donnybooke Speedway near Braincrd, Minn.
