Catcher Johnny Bench cracked 2 homeruns and had 3 RBI at Fenway Park '71 as the Champaign Blue Moons beat the Milwaukee Brewers 10 to 8.

The home town fans were very appreciative of the fine hitting performance provided by Bench. He lofted a solo-blast 'downtown' in the 6th inning and blasted a two-run home run (his 8th of the season) in the 7th inning. Champaign had 12 hits for the afternoon while Milwaukee had 6.

The victory went to Jim Brewer(3-3) who went 2 and 1/3 innings, allowing 2 runs. Brewer got help from Joe Nathan who was credited with his 9th save. Bill Henry(2-2) was tagged with the loss in relief. He gave up 5 runs in 3 innings of work.
