WEB GEMS- Top 3rd: Ron Leflore robbed Willie McCovey of a Homerun!
 
Ron Leflore went deep and scored 3 times as the Detroit Reds defeated the San
Francisco Yankees by the score of 10 to 8 at Tiger Stadium.
 
Detroit jumped on top to stay in the 4th inning as they scored 3 runs on 2
base hits.  The crucial at-bat was provided by Bob Bailey who brought a roar
from the partisan Tiger Stadium fans when he blasted a two-run home run.  San
Francisco had a chance in the 9th but they came up short.  
 
Mark Fidrych(7-2) got credit for the victory, pitching 8 innings and allowing
8 runs. Fidrych got help from Steve Foucault who was credited with his 4th
save.  Bob Knepper(4-4) ended up with the loss.  He was touched for 3
homeruns in his 5 innings of work.  
 
'You have to give San Francisco credit, they fought us tough to the end' Randy
Newman said.  'It could have gone either way, but I'm glad we pulled out the
victory.'
