Left fielder Al Simmons had 4 hits and 6 RBI as the Camden Riversharks defeated the Champaign Blue Moons 14 to 9 at Fenway Park '71.

Simmons was in a groove all day. The Champaign fans hated to see him approaching the batter's box. He stroked a one-base hit scoring two baserunners in the 1st inning, lined a base-hit resulting in a run in the 2nd inning, delivered a single in the 6th inning and clubbed a three-run home run (his 2nd of the season) in the 8th inning. Champaign was not lacking for run support as they scored in 6 separate innings, yet victory eluded them as they seemed to forget that pitching is also needed to win ballgames.

Greg Maddux(2-0) went 8 and 2/3 innings allowing 9 runs for the victory. Stan Coveleski(0-1) was given the loss. 'It's just about getting in a good hitting position and just going out there and being prepared,' Simmons said. 'You try to hit in your own capacity and not do too much. I just try to have a good approach, day after day, game by game, and pitch by pitch.'
