Great Stroke: Larson Gets 5 Hits
Steve Larson was on quite a roll today as he knocked the ball all over Bojangles Stadium, collecting 5 hits. His day of glory wasn't able to win the game, however. The Ohio Knights got the 7-5 victory over the North Carolina Aviators.

"I never realized that a few hits could cause so much commotion," the center fielder said in the clubhouse after the game, crowded by reporters. "Headlines and highlights are great, but it takes a lot of luster off it that we lost."

After his first couple of hits, all eyes in the ballpark were on him each time Larson stepped into the batter's box. Even some opposing fans were pulling for him, knowing they were watching a little slice of baseball history unfold.

When asked what the secret of hitting so well is, he smiled and said "relax, concentrate, and hit the ball where they ain't."

That's exactly what he did today, as Larson finished the game with 5 hits in 5 at-bats and a line in the record book. Steve Larson doubled in the 1st, singled in the 3rd, singled in the 5th, hit an RBI double in the 7th and doubled in the 9th.

This season Larson has hit at a .253 clip with 11 RBIs, 2 home runs and 6 runs scored. He has played in 27 games.
