Jason Giambi rocketed 2 homeruns and had 6 RBI at Shea Stadium '71 as the Chatham Chiefs belted the Barnster Pomeranians by the count of 18 to 7.

Giambi enjoyed a great day at the plate. Every time he came up in the latter innings, the crowd was on their feet cheering. He banged out a single bringing in a run in the 1st inning, lofted a three-run bomb in the 5th inning and popped a two-run clout over the fence (his 2nd of the season) in the 7th inning. Chatham bats were hot in the 1st inning with 6 runs on 7 hits, the 4th inning scoring 4 runs and the 5th inning plating 4 runs. Chatham finished with 16 hits while Barnster ended up with 10.

The win was credited to Billy Pierce(1-0) who went 8 and 2/3 innings allowing 4 runs. The loss was charged to Lefty Grove(0-1). He surrendered 6 runs and 5 hits in 1/3 of an inning.
