Al Simmons ripped 2 homeruns and Greg Maddux completed the game without help from the bullpen as the Plutonium Rooters beat the Cleveland Comeback Kids by a score of 7 to 2.

It was a good day for Plutonium thanks to Simmons. He smashed a bases-empty 'big-fly' in the 6th inning and caught a hold of a fastball for a Grand Slam homerun (his 2nd of the season) in the 7th inning. Plutonium had 9 hits for the afternoon.

Maddux(1-0) lasted until the end allowing 2 runs for the win. Tom Seaver(0-1) was tagged with the loss. He pitched 6 and 2/3 innings giving up 8 hits and 3 walks.
