Bill Dahlen ripped 2 homeruns and had 6 RBI as the Streetwalking Cheetahs defeated the Beale Street Blues III by the score of 7 to 4 at Griffith Stadium '54.

Dahlen enjoyed a big day at the plate. He smacked a single scoring a run in the 1st inning, slapped a base-hit in the 4th inning, lofted a three-run bomb in the 5th inning and bombed a two-run dinger (his 5th of the season) in the 7th inning. Beale Street went down without a fight in the 9th.

Johnny Klippstein(2-7) picked up the victory, allowing 1 run in 3 innings. Luis Arroyo(4-3) was charged with the loss in relief. He was knocked around, surrendering 3 runs in 2 innings.

Dahlen was jubilant after the game 'Let me see a box-score' he joked, 'I want to see how that game looks on paper.'
