Victory Takes Miners to 80-71
A nice crowd turned out for a clash between the Pittsburgh Miners and Detroit Dynamos.

The Pittsburgh Miners got a strong performance from pitcher Billy Ligons, who stymied the Detroit offense en route to a win, 6-2, at Thompson Field. In 9 innings, Ligons surrendered 9 hits, while striking out 3 and walking 0. He allowed 2 runs.

Pittsburgh relied on the hitting of Whit Williams to pick up the win. The center fielder clubbed a solo home run in the top of the fourth inning to put the Miners on top, 2-0. For the game, Williams had 1 home run and 1 single in 4 at-bats.

"We'll sip on a cold one and savor this win," said Williams.

The win gives Pittsburgh a season record of 80-71.
