Another player just up from the bushes, Miguel Dilone, gave Cleveland its lone victory when he singled in the 10th to beat Boston 4-3. Two hitting streaks ended as the Indians fell into the basement: Jorge Orta's at 17 games and Mike Hargrove's at 23. Only a desperate manager could find reason to make a cleanup hitter of Toby Harrah, who was batting .217. But Cleveland skipper Dave Garcia was inspired to do so—because " Harrah has hit some long, hard foul balls lately."
Detroit (3-1) fans no longer can cheer for Mark Fidrych, who is in the minors, but following a 6-5 victory over Oakland they were dancing outside Tiger Stadium at 11 p.m. Touching off the celebration was the town's newest hero, Shortstop Alan Trammell, whose fourth hit of the game drove in two runs in the ninth for a 6-5 win. By hitting .500, Trammell raised his average to .365.
