Must win Game 6 for the Tigers has them sending Milt Wilcox (13-13 3.76 Grade 8) to the mound against Lary Sorensen (18-12 3.21 Grade 14).
The Tigers did exactly what the needed to do grabbing a quick 2-0 lead in the first. Rusty Staub and Milt May providing RBI. The Tigers would get another one in the 4th to take a 3-0 lead into the late innings. The Brewers would finally get to Wilcox in the 7th as Paul Molitor and Don Money get RBI singles to bring the game to a 3-2 score.
The Tigers would bring on closer John Hiller with 2 outs in the 8th and he would get the final 4 outs to preserve the game and send us to a 1978 Tournament first Game 7. Great fun/close series here!!
