Wild Bill Wright had 3 base hits and 2 RBI and Walter Johnson reeled off a total of 10 strikeouts as the blistering-hot Camden Riversharks defeated the Foghorn team in 10 innings 5 to 3 at Shea Stadium '71.

The score was knotted at 3 after nine innings. Camden came out the victor in the 10th inning. Hughie Jennings started the inning off right when he slapped a single. Jennings stole second with some aggressive base running. Eric Davis struck out, unable to help the rally. Cecil Fielder followed and he cleared the fences for a two-run home run (his 4th of the season). Both teams ended up with 8 hits on the afternoon.

Johnson(2-0) went 9 and 1/3 innings allowing 3 runs for the win. Eric Gagne recorded the save, his 3rd. Tom Henke(0-1) was given the loss in relief.

Johnson didn't realize how many strikeouts he was racking up. When told he had 10 he was obviously surprised, 'No kidding? Man, I knew that I had decent total, but I didn't think I had K'd that many. Say, that's pretty good, isn't it?'
