Dutch Leonard racked up an impressive total of 10 strikeouts and right fielder Jesus Alou had 2 base hits as the Nyc Nyc outscored the slumping Memphis Magicians 3 to 0.

Leonard(4-0) escaped virtually unscathed against the Memphis hitters. He was stingy on the mound, allowing just 5 hits and 1 walk in 9 innings. Nyc and Memphis each finished the afternoon with 5 hits.

Hal Newhouser(1-3) was tagged with the loss. Mark McClellan was upset after the game. 'I don't like to complain but did you see that umpires strike zone?', he said. 'Maybe they ought to start calling the strike zone the way it's printed in the rule book.'
