Left fielder Willard Brown ripped 2 homeruns and Dutch Leonard tossed a fine 3 hitter as the Its Now Or Never defeated the Oregon Stooges by the score of 6 to 3 at Ebbets Field '20.

The Oregon fans didn't appreciate the big day Brown had. He ripped a solo home run in the 1st inning and emptied the bases with a Grand Slam homerun (his 14th of the season) in the 7th inning. Oregon was retired without difficulty in the bottom of the 9th.

Leonard(9-5) picked up the complete game victory, allowing 3 runs. Babe Ruth(6-7) was the loser. He pitched 6 and 2/3 innings and surrendered 7 hits and 4 walks.

Leonard, when asked about his 12 strikeout performance noted, 'The important thing is that we won, if I get 20 and we lose, what good does it do our team? But, on the other hand, since we won it feels great!'
