Al Simmons slammed 2 homeruns as the Bumbles Bounce outscored the Sacramento River Cats 6 to 3.

Simmons had a great day at the plate. He ripped a base-knock in the 2nd inning, ripped a solo home run in the 4th inning and depressed the partisan hometown fans with a grand slam homerun (his 34th of the season) in the 6th inning. Bumbles out-hit Sacramento for the game, 12 hits to 5.

The winning pitcher was Orel Hershiser(15-12) who allowed 3 runs in 8 and 1/3 innings. Eric Gagne earned his 19th save. Ed Walsh(15-15) absorbed the loss. He allowed 3 homeruns in 9 innings of work.

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