Second baseman Rogers Hornsby rocketed 2 homeruns and had 4 RBI and Jack Coombs allowed Lightnin’ Hopkins to rest his bullpen, tossing a complete game as the Black Cadillac outscored the Copper Rooters 11 to 4.

Hornsby was spectacular at the plate. The hometown fans showed their appreciation with a standing ovation his last time at bat. He doubled bringing in a run in the 1st inning, smashed a solo-shot out of the park in the 3rd inning and blasted a solo shot (his 19th of the season) in the 5th inning. Black finished with 10 hits in the victory.

Coombs(6-11) got the victory, allowing 4 runs for the game. Atley Donald(4-7) took the loss. He got hit pretty hard, allowing 9 hits and 3 walks in 5 and 2/3 innings.

The Black ballclub's record now stands at 36-60. With the loss, the Copper ballclub's record is 56-40.
