Tom Seaver allowed Randy Newman to rest his bullpen, tossing a complete game
at Tiger Stadium as the Detroit Reds pulled off a dramatic comeback beating
the Boston Mets by the count of 7 to 6.
 
Detroit came up with the deciding runs in the bottom of the 9th inning as they
scored 4 runs on 3 base hits.  The crucial at-bat was provided by Ken
Singleton who came through for the home fans when he doubled plating all
three baserunners.  Detroit finished with 13 hits in the victory.  
 
The winning pitcher was Seaver(3-0) who allowed 6 runs for the game. Skip
Lockwood(0-1) was the losing pitcher in relief.  
 
'Wow, that was fun!', Seaver said following the game.  'Once in a while you
play a game that reminds you just why you got into this business to begin
with!'
