All-Time Greats VI | box score
Left fielder Roger Maris blasted 3 homeruns and had 6 RBI as the Fun Ball
Returns defeated the Az Cubbies by the score of 17 to 10 at Polo Grounds
Maris was spectacular at the plate. He cleared the fences for a two-run home
run in the 1st inning, belted a three-run homer in the 5th inning and smashed
a solo-shot out of the park (his 70th of the season) in the 8th inning. Fun
Ball bats were hot in the 1st inning which saw them plate 4 runs on 3 hits
and the 8th inning with 4 runs on 3 hits. Az had 15 hits in the game while
Fun Ball had 11, but Fun Ball had the more timely hits.
Danny Cox(7-10) got credit for the victory, pitching 8 innings and allowing 7
runs. Bill Zuber(9-12) absorbed the loss. He had trouble throwing strikes
and issued 11 walks in 4 and 2/3 innings.
Clayton Kershaw pitched a 3 hitter at Coors Field as the Camarillo Black
Sox beat the Into the Matrix in 10 innings by the count of 3 to 1.
Both teams were tied at 1 runs apiece after nine innings. Camarillo came out
the victor in the 10th inning. Andres Blanco led off and started the attack
as he banged out a single. Gregor Blanco was a strikeout victim, unable to
help out. Jayson Werth then cracked a two-run shot (his 15th of the season).
The Into the batters went down meekly in the bottom of the 10th.
Kershaw(6-5) allowed 1 run on the game. Francisco Rodriguez(2-3) suffered the
loss in relief. Kershaw was obviously very pleased with his performance in
the aftermath of the game, ‘It was just one of those games where everything
worked. My arm felt great, heck, I could have pitched another two or three
innings. I only hope that I can do it again next time out!’
Back to the ’90s
Randy Johnson took a no-hitter into the 6th inning and designated hitter Dave
Winfield blasted a homerun and had 2 RBI as the Jackson Cage defeated the
Sauk Prairie Eagles by a score of 6 to 0 at County Stadium
Johnson(20-14) came through with a virtuoso performance against the Sauk
Prairie hitters. He allowed only 3 hits and 2 walks in 9 innings. Johnson
struckout 11 Sauk Prairie batters. The left-handed Johnson had his no-hit
bid broken up by Mark Loretta who singled with nobody out in the 6th inning.
Jackson rapped out 12 hits for the afternoon.
Bret Saberhagen(9-13) was the loser. He allowed 10 hits and 4 walks in 4 and
2/3 innings. Johnson was asked about his big strikeout performance, ‘Well,
it’s a little odd when you rack up these numbers on the road – instead of
cheers and a running tally in the stands, everything gets real still and
quiet. Just strange – but it’s nice to be able to take the crowd out of the
Mike Scott struck out 13 batters as the indomitable Aurora’s Big Blue Gents
topped the Cedar Crest Bobcats by a score of 3 to 1 at Olympic Stadium

hits and 1 walk in 8 and 2/3 innings. Cedar Crest had a chance to come back
in the 9th but they came up short.
Scott was jubilant in the hometown clubhouse, ‘It was a lot of fun out there.
The fans gave me a lot of support as did my teammates. We got the victory
and I’ll sure take 13 strikeouts anytime!’
