Pete Alexander whiffed 11 batters and Willie Mays blasted 4 homeruns and had 6 RBI as the Storm Ending defeated the Foghorn club 11 to 4 at Minute Maid Field '05.

Mays really lit it up for Storm. The Foghorn fans let him have it for what he did to their boys. He cracked a two-run shot in the 1st inning, ripped a solo home run in the 6th inning, delivered a solo blast in the 8th inning and popped a two-run clout over the fence (his 31st of the season) in the 9th inning. Offensively, Storm was a juggernaut. They scored in 6 separate innings.

Alexander(13-11) went 8 and 2/3 innings allowing 4 runs for the win. Stan Coveleski(12-13) absorbed the loss. He served up 9 homeruns in his 8 and 1/3 innings.

Alexander was asked about his big strikeout performance, 'Well, it's a little odd when you rack up these numbers on the road - instead of cheers and a running tally in the stands, everything gets real still and quiet. Just strange - but it's nice to be able to take the crowd out of the game.'
