Babe Ruth cracked 2 homeruns and had 3 RBI and Randy Johnson reeled off a total of 10 strikeouts as the NY HORNETS topped the Cleveland Spiders by a score of 5 to 2 at Dunn Field '20.

Ruth helped send the fans home happy. He smashed a two-run homer in the 1st inning and blasted a solo shot (his 31st of the season) in the 5th inning. Cleveland made it exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to push the needed runs across.

Johnson(9-9) allowed 2 runs in 8 innings, and picked up the victory. Johnson got help from Ad Liska who was credited with his 9th save. The loss was charged to Brickyard Kennedy(0-4). He surrendered 3 runs and 7 hits in 5 innings.

Stu was upset after the game. 'I don't like to complain but did you see that umpires strike zone?', he said. 'Maybe they ought to start calling the strike zone the way it's printed in the rule book.'
