Center fielder Turkey Stearnes hit for the cycle and had 4 RBI as the West Lawn Wolves man-handled the Tidewater Tides 8 - the final score was 24 to 11.

Stearnes was in a groove all day. The Tidewater fans hated to see him approaching the batter's box. He laced a base-knock in the 2nd inning, hit a bases-empty home run in the 3rd inning, tripled knocking in a run in the 7th inning, popped a two-run clout over the fence (his 13th of the season) in the 8th inning and doubled in the 9th inning. West Lawn lit up the scoreboard in the 2nd inning with 5 runs on 6 hits, the 4th inning when they had 6 runs on 5 hits and the 8th inning which saw them plate 5 runs on 5 hits. The West Lawn offense poured it on, scoring in 7 of the 9 innings.

Jon Matlack(7-4) got the win allowing 9 runs in 6 innings. Matlack got help from Al McBean who was credited with his 4th save. Jack Coombs(4-4) was given the loss.
