Tony Saunders took a no-hitter into the 6th inning and center fielder Harry Rice had 3 base hits and 2 RBI at Griffith Stadium '41 where the Spider Creek Tivas 3 beat the floundering Diplomatic Immunity 5 to 1.

Saunders(7-4) escaped virtually unscathed against the Diplomatic hitters. He didn't allow much, just 1 hit and 1 walk in 9 innings. Saunders recorded 15 strikeouts lowering his ERA from 4.89 to 4.50. The left-handed Saunders lost his chance for a no-hitter when Julio Franco homered with two outs in the 6th inning. Spider Creek had 11 hits for the afternoon.

Tom Cheney(3-8) suffered the loss. Scot was asked about the performance of Saunders, 'He had his good stuff out there this afternoon. The fans really get into it when the strikeouts start mounting up - and that seems to give him even more adrenalin.'
