It was raining runs at Christie Pits and Bickford Park as regular season play continued on three diamonds in the Mosquito Division.
The Cubs outslugged the Lizzies 15-9 in four innings of play at Bickford South. The Cubs pitching staff neutralized the potent Lizzies batting order during the course of the game when it mattered the most. Also, the Cubs batters were able to convert the vast majority of their scoring opportunities to take an eight run lead into the bottom of the fouth inning. It was a lead that the Lizzies were unable to rally from.
