Walter Johnson took a no-hitter into the 6th inning and Matt Williams slammed 3 homeruns and had 4 RBI as the Camden Riversharks defeated the South Park Penguins by a score of 8 to 5 at Polo Grounds '11.

Williams provided much of the offense. He smashed a bases-empty 'big-fly' in the 2nd inning, lifted one out of the park for a two run home run in the 4th inning and cracked a solo homerun (his 11th of the season) in the 6th inning. Camden banged out 14 hits on the afternoon.

Johnson(11-2) lasted until the end allowing 5 runs for the win. The right-handed Johnson lost his chance for a no-hitter when Sam Thompson singled with one out in the 6th inning. The loss was charged to Lefty Grove(1-6). He served up 4 homeruns in his 5 innings.

Toy Boy 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.'
