The Chudley Cannons enjoyed a blow-out, pounding the Ragnar Lothbrok pitchers for 21 while Glen Hobbie(5-5), with relief help from Don Larsen, allowed Ragnar 9 runs.

Chudley drew first blood, jumping out to an early lead in the first inning scoring 4 runners on 3 hits. The crucial at-bat was provided by Sam Thompson, who deflated the spirits of the home town crowd when he tripled clearing all three ducks off the pond. Chudley bats were very productive in the 1st inning with 4 runs on 3 hits, the 6th inning which saw them plate 5 runs on 5 hits and the 8th inning when they had 4 runs on 4 hits. Ragnar was not lacking for run support as they scored in 5 separate innings, yet victory eluded them as they seemed to forget that pitching is also needed to win ballgames.

Brickyard Kennedy(3-4) was the losing pitcher.
