Walt Terrell allowed two hits and Chet Lemon, Dave Bergman and Kirk Gibson homered to lead the Detroit Tigers to an 8-0 victory over the visiting Toronto Blue Jays last night.
Terrell (9-3) gave up a two-out double to Lloyd Moseby, who was out trying to stretch it, in the first inning and a one-out single to Willie Upshaw in the seventh. He walked two and struck out none in his second game this season.
"As long as I win, I don't care how many hits they get," he said. "They can hit 27 balls to the wall, as long as they're caught. As long as I get them out and win, I'll take them. To me, it wasn't a two-hit game. The guys really made some plays behind me."
Third baseman Tom Brookens, who had three doubles, made a fine diving catch of George Bell's line drive with two men on and one out in the seventh to preserve Terrell's second shutout.
Lemon's fourth home run this season came with one out in the second inning and made it 2-0 against Luis Leal (3-6), who gave up a run in the first on Gibson's sacrifice fly.
"This grass is so slow," Manager Bobby Cox of the Blue Jays complained, "you can't get anything through it."
The game drew 47,965 to push Detroit over the million mark in home attendance for the 21st consecutive season.
