Lions Best Explorers in Pitching Duel
Two good teams met in a late-season showdown at Multnomah Stadium.

Kentucky Lions starter Kyoichi Kichikawa was in fine form against the Oregon Explorers at Multnomah Stadium, leading his team to a 1-0 win. Kichikawa, now 13-9, was the winner. In 5.1 innings, he gave up 3 hits, while striking out 5, walking 0, and allowing no earned runs. Luis Castro notched his 4th save in 9 chances.

The Lions got a big at-bat from second baseman Ron Ward. For the game, Ward went 1-3. In the top of the second, with runners on 1st and 2nd, he stroked a run-scoring single. His 77th hit of the season gave Kentucky a 1-0 lead.

"This level of focus will win us a lot of ballgames," Kichikawa said after the game.

The first-place Lions have their sights set on making a deep playoff run.
