First baseman Jim Gentile smashed 2 homeruns and had 3 RBI as the Haystack Mtn. Semi Barnstorm beat the Kesha County Crew by a score of 6 to 4.

Gentile had a big day at the plate. He delivered a solo blast in the 2nd inning and bombed a two-run dinger (his 13th of the season) in the 4th inning. Kesha County had a chance to come back in the 9th but they came up short.

Hilton Smith(5-2) allowed 4 runs in 8 and 1/3 innings, and picked up the victory. Dennis Eckersley earned his 17th save. The losing pitcher was Catfish Hunter(2-9). He served up 3 gopher balls in 5 innings.

When questioned, Barney St. Ormer remarked, 'It's been a while since a win felt this good - heck, it's been a while since we had a win period!'
