Hank Greenberg smacked 2 homeruns and Dutch Leonard had a strong outing as the Las Vegas Whales defeated the McKay Pinchers by a score of 4 to 1 at Polo Grounds '41.

Las Vegas drew first blood, jumping out to an early lead in the first inning with 2 runs on 2 hits. Joe Dimaggio started the attack as he hit a bases-empty home run (his 34th of the season). After an out was recorded, Greenberg stepped in and he lofted a solo-blast 'downtown'. That was all the offense they were to need. Las Vegas ended up with 6 hits for the game while McKay had 2.

The win went to Leonard(14-8) who allowed 1 run in 8 innings. Leonard got help from Al McBean who was credited with his 12th save. Sandy Koufax(10-10) suffered the loss. He served up 4 homeruns in his 8 innings.
