Braves Win Red Sox Tie for Second

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Rico Petrocelli drove in three runs with ?? doubles to help the streaking Red Sox defeat the Detroit Tigers, 6-5, last night and move into a second-place tie with the losers. The Red Sox have won five games in a row, and eight of their last nine, while the Tigers have lost five consecutive games.

Petrocelli collected his 95th RBI of the season in the seventh inning when he drove in the run that broke a 5-5 tie. Baltimore's loss to the Yankees last night enabled Boston to cut the Orioles' lead to only 22 games.

In the western division of the National League, the Atlanta Braves inched closer to a chance to meet the Mets in the playoff with a 10-4 win over San Diego.

Orlando Cepeda, the Baby Bull, hit a grand slam home run in the third inning to give the Braves enough runs to win. Phil Niekro won his 22nd game with help from another knuckleballer, Hoyt Wilhelm.
