Doling out five singles, Mickey Lolich pitched the Tigers to a 3-1 victory over the Athletics and beat Chuck Dobson, who was halted on his personal eight-game winning streak. Dalton Jones doubled and scored on a single by Mickey Stanley for the Tigers' first run in the third inning. Jones added a homer in the seventh and the Tigers' final tally counted in the eighth on two walks and a double by Don Wert. An error by Wert enabled the A's to score an unearned run in the ninth.
