Eddie Cicotte pitched a 3 hitter at Forbes Field '57 as the Minnesota Mobsters beat the Champaign Blue Moons by the count of 9 to 2.

In the bottom of the 2nd inning Minnesota went on top for good scoring 3 runs using 3 hits. George Moriarty led off and started the rally when he laced a one-base hit. Mike Tresh came to the plate and laid down a sacrifice bunt. One out later, Cicotte stepped in and he drew a walk. Ginger Beaumont came up and he hit a single knocking in a run. Frankie Frisch stepped into the box and stroked a base-hit driving in one more runner. Frisch took second on the throw. A balk was called scoring the final run of the inning. That was all Cicotte(1-0) needed. Minnesota had 14 hits for the afternoon.

Rick Rhoden(0-1) was the loser. He was touched for 10 hits and 3 walks in 6 innings. 'I thought it was my best performance in a long time,' said Cicotte. 'I had good command early in the game. I had my control and composure and everything went well.'
