Ron LeFlore and Steve Kemp batted in all of the Tigers' runs between them to defeat the Brewers, 5-3, and enable rookie Jack Morris to gain credit for his first major league victory. LeFlore accounted for three RBIs, batting in the Tigers' first two runs with a homer in the third inning and driving in another with a double in the seventh. Kemp plated a run with a single in the sixth and added the Tigers' final run with a homer in the eighth. [The Sporting News]
