Third baseman Matt Williams launched 2 homeruns and had 4 RBI and Dutch Leonard carried a no-hitter into the 9th inning as the Las Vegas Whales defeated the Crow's Nest ballclub 6 to 2 at Polo Grounds '41.

The home town fans were very appreciative of the fine hitting performance provided by Williams. He rifled a three-run blast in the 1st inning, delivered a solo blast (his 8th of the season) in the 3rd inning and doubled in the 5th inning. Las Vegas rapped out 11 hits for the afternoon.

Leonard(4-1) got the victory, allowing 2 runs for the game. The left-handed Leonard had his no-hit bid broken up by Frank Taveras who singled with two outs in the 9th inning. Eddie Plank(1-3) was the loser. He got hit hard, allowing 8 hits and 2 walks in 5 innings.

'Leonard took our guys to school' Edgar Allen Poe said. 'Too bad he doesn't pitch for us - it would make my job a whole lot easier!'
