Third baseman Eddie Mathews ripped a bases loaded blast as the Chatham Chiefs defeated the Rapid City Racers by the score of 6 to 5 at Shea Stadium '71.

The home town fans were very appreciative of the fine hitting performance provided by Mathews. He emptied the bases with a Grand Slam homerun (his 3rd of the season) in the 1st inning and doubled in the 4th inning. Although they lost, Rapid City did out-hit Chatham 10 to 7.

Dave Danforth(2-0) was the winner allowing 2 runs in 1 and 2/3 innings. Dan Wheeler got the save, his 3rd. Al McBean(0-1) suffered the loss in relief.
