Second baseman Rogers Hornsby slammed 2 homeruns and had 5 RBI and Jesse Haines was able to finish what he started and was credited with a complete game at Polo Grounds '24 as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the New York ALT Giants by the count of 7 to 3.

Hornsby really lit it up for St. Louis. The New York fans let him have it for what he did to their boys. He popped a two-run clout over the fence in the 3rd inning, slapped a one-base hit in the 5th inning, hit a bases-empty home run (his 17th of the season) in the 8th inning and doubled bringing in two baserunners in the 9th inning. St. Louis banged out 15 hits on the afternoon.

Haines(8-4), allowing 3 runs for the game, picked up the victory. Carl Hubbell(8-6) was tagged with the loss. 'Hornsby led the way - we just jumped on his back and let him take us,' Haines said. 'I'm glad I don't have to face him. I'm glad he's on my team.'
