Designated hitter Hank Greenberg smashed 3 homeruns and Stan Coveleski pitched a complete game at County Stadium '78 as the Alderton Anvils beat the Brightwood Pioneers 8 to 3.

Greenberg had a big day at the plate. He lined a single in the 1st inning, hit a bases-empty home run in the 3rd inning, ripped a solo home run in the 5th inning, laced a base-hit in the 7th inning and blasted a solo shot (his 3rd of the season) in the 9th inning. Alderton finished with 13 hits in the victory.

Coveleski(1-0) picked up the complete game victory, allowing 3 runs. Russ Ford(0-1) was the loser. He served up 4 homeruns in his 7 and 1/3 innings.

'Some days it just all comes together, and this was one of them' Greenberg said. 'I've been seeing the ball pretty well lately.'
