Dave Kingman cracked 2 homeruns and had 3 RBI and Lefty Grove reeled off a total of 12 strikeouts at Yankee Stadium '56 where the Crow's Nest ballclub beat the Conejo Acorns 8 to 4.

Kingman was a seemingly constant irritant to the hometown fans as he provided much of the offense for the visitors. He lifted one out of the park for a two run home run in the 2nd inning and cracked a solo homerun (his 27th of the season) in the 3rd inning. Crow's Nest had 13 hits for the afternoon.

Grove(15-9) allowed 4 runs on the game. The losing pitcher was Dennis Bennett(7-5). He was touched for 3 homeruns in his 5 innings of work.

Grove was asked about his big strikeout performance, 'Well, it's a little odd when you rack up these numbers on the road - instead of cheers and a running tally in the stands, everything gets real still and quiet. Just strange - but it's nice to be able to take the crowd out of the game.'
