Left fielder Babe Ruth cracked 2 homeruns and scored 3 times as the Foghorn ballclub defeated the Camden Riversharks by the score of 6 to 5 at Shea Stadium '71.

Ruth had a good day at the plate. He delivered a solo blast in the 1st inning, ripped a solo home run (his 5th of the season) in the 6th inning and tripled in the 8th inning. John Smoltz earned the save with a perfect ninth, his 2nd save.

The victory was credited to Doc White(1-0) who went 8 innings, allowing 5 runs. Greg Maddux(2-2) was the loser. He served up 5 gopher balls in 8 innings.

'I just wanted to give my team a chance to win.' said White, 'I got burned on a couple of pitches. But we won the game, and that's all that matters.'
