On October 3, 1972 the Detroit Tigers clinch the division in a strike-shortened season. Billy Martin leads the aging club to the title.

Woodie Fryman picks up the win in a 3-1 win at Tiger Stadium over Red Sox legend Luis Tiant. Future hall of famer Al Kaline delivers the go-ahead single in the 7th and will score an insurance run on an error.  Chuck Seelbach pitches 1.1 innings of gutless relief to seal the win.

He will get through Carlton Fisk, Cecil Cooper, Dwight Evans and Ben Oglivie.
