The Ontario Blue Pirates and New Jersey Athletics provided some drama at Farmers Market Stadium.

New Jersey starter Bobby Young pitched effectively against the Ontario Blue Pirates at Farmers Market Stadium. The right-hander led his team to a 6-5 win. The win was credited to Joe Berry in relief. His record improves to 2-3. Edwin Mercer took the loss.

The Athletics got a big at-bat from center fielder Jim Murdock. For the game, Murdock was 1-4 with a walk. He drove in 2 runs and scored once. In the top of the ninth, with the bases loaded, he stroked a 2-run single. His 57th hit of the season gave New Jersey a 5-3 lead.

"I like the grit of this ballclub," Young said.

Ontario's current losing streak has reached 5 games.
