Mike Piazza smacked 2 homeruns and had 5 RBI at Municipal Stadium '57 as the Baltimore Blue Crabs beat the Amblyomma Matadors by the count of 13 to 10.

Piazza was a source of great heartache for the Amblyomma faithful all day. He just kept pounding out hits! He lifted one out of the park for a two run home run in the 4th inning, laced a one-base hit in the 6th inning and lost the ball over the fence for three runs (his 43rd of the season) in the 7th inning. Amblyomma had a chance to come back in the 9th but they came up short.

The win went to Hank Behrman(4-6) who allowed no runs in 2 innings. Jeff Nelson(7-5) was given the loss in relief. He was knocked around pretty good, giving up 6 runs in 2 innings.

'It's almost like the ball was trying to hit my bat,' Piazza said. 'Whenever I would swing, the ball found the sweet spot.'
