Babe Ruth cracked 2 homeruns and had 3 RBI as the Chatham Chiefs topped the Rapid City Racers by a score of 9 to 5 at Griffith Stadium '24.

Ruth had a big day at the plate. He bombed a two-run dinger in the 1st inning and smashed a bases-empty 'big-fly' (his 4th of the season) in the 7th inning. Rapid City was out-hit by Chatham, 14 hits to 11.

Billy Pierce(1-0) allowed 5 runs in 8 innings, and picked up the victory. Pierce got help from Pete Richert who earned his 3rd save. Bob McClure(0-1) suffered the loss in relief.
