Ruppert Jones slammed 2 homeruns and had 4 RBI at Royals Stadium '78 where the Flatbed Ford Girls beat the Caldwell Crypt Kickers 10 to 6.

The Caldwell fans didn't appreciate the big day Jones had. He smashed a two-run homer in the 5th inning and blasted a two-run home run (his 18th of the season) in the 7th inning. Flatbed Ford out-hit Caldwell for the game, 15 hits to 12.

The win was credited to Don Sutton(21-14) who went 8 and 2/3 innings allowing 6 runs. Sutton got relief help from Mariano Rivera who gained credit for his 28th save. Tom Seaver(14-18) was the losing pitcher. He got hit hard, allowing 13 hits and 2 walks in 6 and 2/3 innings.

'It felt really nice to get this win,' Sutton said. 'I kind of dictated the game. It's what I get paid to do. It worked out this time.'
