Don Sutton(4-9) was on top of his game in Hometown as he tossed a beauty of a no-hitter against the Cerritos Deadjoggers. The Hometown Heroes won by a score of 4 to 0.

Sutton was obviously at the top of his game as he set the Cerritos batters down like so many dominoes. He walked 7 Cerritos batters. What a day for the fans. They were on the edge of their seats from the 7th inning on. With every out, the electricity in the air mounted. Hometown finished with just 6 hits in the victory.

Juan Marichal(15-18) was the loser. 'I gave it everything I had. It's probably the greatest day of my life,' Sutton said. 'I was out there focusing on my catcher's glove, that's all. I just concentrated on pitching my game.'
