The Chatham Chiefs nipped the Rapid City Racers 4 to 3 at Griffith Stadium '24 in a hard fought contest.

In the top of the 3rd inning Chatham scored 3 runs. The big moment was provided by Babe Ruth, who helped quiet the crowd when he lost the ball over the fence for three runs (his 17th of the season). Rapid City threatened in the 9th but Chatham was able to put down the rally.

The victory went to Mickey Lolich(1-1) who went 8 innings, allowing 2 runs. Dan Wheeler got the save, his 4th. Jeff Fassero(1-2) was the losing pitcher. He allowed 6 hits and 3 walks in 7 innings.

'I didn't have my best stuff but sometimes you just get lucky,' Lolich said, 'this was one of those times.'
