WEB GEMS- Bot 1st: Jim Rice robbed Joe Morgan of an extra base hit.
 
Ron Leflore lofted one into the 'cheap seats' and had 6 RBI at Tiger Stadium
where the Detroit Reds beat the Boston Mets 11 to 5.
 
Leflore really 'lit it up' for Detroit.  He tripled plating two runs in the
1st inning, ripped a one-base hit knocking in a run in the 4th inning and
lofted a three-run bomb in the 6th inning.  Detroit had 14 hits overall,
while Boston had 10.  
 
Dave Rozema(2-0) got the win allowing 5 runs in 8 and 1/3 innings. The loss
was charged to Jon Matlack(1-1).  'I've spent a lot of time in the cage and
made some adjustments and they've paid off,' Leflore said. 'I just take the
same approach up there. I don't overanalyze it. I go up there, see the ball
and try to put a good swing on it.'
