Left fielder Al Simmons cleared the bases with his grand slam as the Camden Riversharks defeated the Foghorn ballclub 8 to 6 at Polo Grounds '11.

Simmons enjoyed a big day at the plate. He launched a rocket shot out of the park for a Grand Slam homerun (his 31st of the season) in the 1st inning and doubled in the 3rd inning. Foghorn threatened in the 9th but their rally came up short.

The victory went to Pedro Martinez(11-9) who went 7 and 2/3 innings, allowing 4 runs. Martinez got relief help from Lee Smith who gained credit for his 2nd save. Joe McGinnity(6-5) was tagged with the loss. He surrendered 8 hits and 4 walks in 8 innings.

When questioned about the loss, Snyde Leigh Whiplash said, 'The fans got to see an exciting game out there this afternoon. Unfortunately, we couldn't get it done this time. Next time, though, we'll be the clubhouse with all the smiles.'
