Lefty Grove pitched 9 strong innings as the Craft Beer Drinkers 3 defeated the Martian Visitors by the score of 2 to 0 at Yankee Stadium '71.

Grove(2-0) was simply too much for the Martian batters. He didn't allow much, just 4 hits and no walks in 9 innings lowering his ERA from 5.14 to 2.25. Craft Beer took care of Martian with no trouble in the 9th.

Sandy Koufax(0-2) was the loser. He allowed 3 hits and 3 walks in 7 innings. Buzz was obviously impressed with the pitching of Grove, 'That guy made us look a little silly out there this afternoon. We just couldn't get to him at all - everything was working for him. I just hope that he got that kinda performance out of his system.'
