Len Barker carried a no-hitter into the 6th inning and Sam Thompson had 2 base hits as the Helium Rooters beat the Pittsburgh Black Panthers by a score of 2 to 0.

Barker(3-7) escaped virtually unscathed against the Pittsburgh hitters. He allowed only 2 hits and 4 walks in 9 innings. The right-handed Barker lost his chance for a no-hitter when Bing Miller doubled with two outs in the 6th inning. Pittsburgh could do no damage in the 9th.

Mudcat Grant(6-9) was the losing pitcher. 'He came out with good stuff,' Labrat said about Barker. 'He threw the ball good from the first pitch on.'
