Nolan Ryan reeled off a total of 10 strikeouts and catcher Josh Gibson blasted 2 homeruns and had 3 RBI as the CorporateTowne Nose Holders beat the Jive Turkeys by a score of 8 to 5.

Gibson provided the offensive punch. He stroked a one-base hit plating a run in the 3rd inning, hit a bases-empty home run in the 4th inning and delivered a solo blast (his 17th of the season) in the 9th inning. CorporateTowne had 12 hits for the afternoon while Jive had 6.

Ryan(6-6) went 8 innings allowing 5 runs for the victory. Jeff Nelson recorded the save, his 6th. The losing pitcher was Denny McLain(7-8). He was hit hard and gave up 7 hits and 3 walks in 3 innings.

'He was really impressive today,' McLain said of his counterpart. 'Our guys were just swinging at air.'
