Pedro Martinez mowed down 13 Metropolis batters and second baseman Billy
Herman had 4 hits and 3 RBI as the Chicago Bombers clobbered the outmatched
Metropolis Supermen, 12 to 2.
Herman was a seemingly constant irritant to the hometown fans as he provided
much of the offense for the visitors. He blasted a solo shot (his 5th of the
season) in the 1st inning, doubled in the 4th inning, singled plating a run
in the 6th inning and doubled knocking in a run in the 7th inning. The
Chicago offense man-handled the Metropolis pitching staff as they scored in 7
of the 9 innings.
The victory was credited to Martinez(21-6) who went the distance, allowing 2
runs. Sonny Siebert(5-10) suffered the loss. He served up 3 gopher balls in
6 and 2/3 innings.
‘He was really impressive today,’ Siebert said of his counterpart. ‘Our guys
were just swinging at air.’
Halladay(13-17) was virtually untouchable. He surrendered only 3 hits and 2
walks in 9 innings. Halladay chalked up 13 strikeouts. Recycled managed 10
hits in their victory.
Felix Hernandez(10-10) was given the loss. He was knocked around by Recycled,
allowing 10 hits and 4 walks in 7 and 1/3 innings. Halladay 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

Brad Radke pitched a complete game shutout as the Buffalo Buteras defeated the
Helz Angels by a score of 1 to 0 at Kauffman Stadium
Radke(7-16) was very good in the win. He allowed only 5 hits and 2 walks in 9
innings. Buffalo managed only 6 hits on the afternoon.
Jim Corsi(1-5) absorbed the loss in relief. He surrendered 1 hit and 1 walk
in 1 and 1/3 innings.
Ronny Cedeno cracked 2 home runs and had 4 RBI at Coors Field as the
Blazing Saddles came back dramatically to top the Bye For Now 7 by the score
of 7 to 6.
Blazing had the game winning rally in the bottom of the 9th inning with 3 runs
using 3 hits. After an out was recorded, Alex Gonzalez initiated the scoring
spurt when he laced a one-base hit. Cedeno came to the plate and popped a
two-run clout over the fence (his 4th of the season). Pat Burrell then lined
a single. One out later, Andre Ethier came up and he drew a walk. Jonathan
Papelbon then let a pitch get away from him. Carlos Pena kept the inning
going and was walked intentionally to load the bases. Melvin Mora was next
and he drew a walk giving Blazing the win and sending the home town fans into
a frenzy. This was a game of many highs and lows for the home town fans, as
the lead kept changing – 6 times in all.
The victory went to Chad Cordero(1-1) who went 1/3 of an inning, allowing no
runs. Papelbon(2-2) took the loss in relief. Oldfart Lingers was all smiles
after the ballgame, ‘It sure was looking pretty dim there for a while, but
our guys never gave up – and neither did our fans – they kept cheering us on.
What a sweet win!’
