Vada Pinson, who collected a double and two singles, drove in two runs and scored one to lead the Angels to a 4-1 victory over the Tigers. Sandy Alomar led off with a single in the first inning, stole second and counted on a single by Pinson. A single by Ken Berry, double by Pinson and grounder by Bob Oliver added a run in the third before the Angels iced the game with two more tallies in the fifth on a double by Berry, single by Pinson and two errors.
