Third baseman Eddie Mathews cracked 3 homeruns and Len Barker delivered 6 solid innings as the Boyd's Justified beat the Tampa Barnstormer 2 by a score of 5 to 1.

Mathews enjoyed a great day at the plate. Every time he came up in the latter innings, the crowd was on their feet cheering. He delivered a solo blast in the 1st inning, smashed a solo-shot out of the park in the 4th inning and cracked a solo homerun (his 54th of the season) in the 8th inning. Tampa was out-hit by Boyd's, 10 hits to 2.

Barker(17-11) got credit for the victory, pitching 6 innings and allowing 1 run. Hoyt Wilhelm was credited with his 34th save. Atley Donald(13-12) was charged with the loss. He gave up 2 runs and 6 hits in 7 innings.

'I just got in the box, looked for a pitch and swung,' Mathews said. 'That's it'
