Frank Robinson ripped 2 homeruns and had 5 RBI at Turner Field '05 where the St Louis Browns beat the Daisy Hill Blockheads 8 to 5.

Robinson had a big day at the plate. He bombed a two-run dinger in the 1st inning, lifted one out of the park for a two run home run (his 35th of the season) in the 3rd inning and doubled bringing in a run in the 7th inning. St Louis finished with 12 hits in the victory.

The victory went to Kirby Higbe(9-15) who went 6 innings, allowing 4 runs. Larry Andersen earned his 2nd save. Tex Hughson(17-15) was the losing pitcher. He got hit pretty hard, allowing 8 hits and 2 walks in 5 innings.

Robinson said, 'It was just all timing. I had pretty good rhythm at the plate tonight. You've got to take advantage of mistakes when you can. A couple pitches were definitely up a little bit - right in my zone.'
