Catcher Mike Piazza blasted 2 homeruns and had 4 RBI as the Beale Street Blues outscored the Beantown Protectors 7 to 5.

Piazza provided much of the offense. He smashed a bases-empty 'big-fly' in the 1st inning, banged out a single in the 3rd inning and clubbed a three-run home run (his 21st of the season) in the 7th inning. Both teams ended up with 10 hits on the afternoon.

The victory was credited to Stu Miller(1-1) who went 1 and 1/3 innings, allowing no runs. Dennis Eckersley gained credit for his 9th save. Bruce Sutter(6-4) was the losing pitcher in relief. He was knocked around, surrendering 3 runs in 2 innings.
