Addie Joss tossed a complete game and Ken Griffey Jr. had 5 hits and 3 RBI at Royals Stadium '78 as the BS Madness beat the struggling Black Cadillac by the count of 12 to 3.

BS tallied 8 runs in the top of the 6th inning when they had 9 base hits. The critical plate appearance was by Lou Gehrig, who silenced the crowd when he smacked a three-run homer (his 19th of the season). BS had 19 hits for the afternoon.

The winning pitcher was Joss(7-6) who allowed 3 runs for the game. Christy Mathewson(7-8) was charged with the loss. His ERA ballooned from 4.87 to 5.38 as he allowed 8 runs in 5 and 1/3 innings.

With this win, BS has a 23-34 record. They have been 5-5 lately. Lightnin’ Hopkins was pretty down after the loss. 'We've really been sputtering along lately, something like 2-8 in the last week or two. That won't get it done.'
