the season) in the 8th inning. Bronx bats were hot in the 3rd inning when

hits and the 6th inning with 4 runs on 5 hits. The Bronx offense poured it
on, scoring in 7 of the 9 innings.

Lester(1-3) had a strong outing. He allowed only 6 hits and 3 walks in 7 and
1/3 innings. San Jose had 8 hits in the game while Jigoku’s had 3, but

Cain(3-1) took the loss. He pitched 6 and 2/3 innings and surrendered just 2
hits and 2 walks.
Jerome Bats was upset after the game. ‘I don’t like to complain but did you
see that umpires strike zone?’, he said. ‘Maybe they ought to start calling
the strike zone the way it’s printed in the rule book.’

off balance all game. A fine game by a good strikeout pitcher – makes it a
fun game for the hometown fans – unfortunately we were the visitors!’
