Jon Hetherton also homered for Shehadi Motors, and he and Ricky Reich delivered four hits. Joining Estrada with three hits were Matt Bailey, Angelo Clelan, Shawn Reed and Mike Fajman.

Bill Connelly did his best to pull out the win for Royal Valhalla as he homered twice and knocked in eight runs. R.J. Jones also homered for Valhalla.

Waterwheel 28, Baker Auto 5

Joel Babich and Mike Moss had four RBIs as Waterwheel used a pair of nine-run innings to pull the plug on Baker Automotive.

Babich belted a three-run first-inning homer as Waterwheel scored eight runs.

Former major-leaguer pitcher Mike Hartley, Rusty Raines, Kevin Lane, Tom Erwin and J.P. Girsch led Waterwheel with four hits.

Len Costa hit a pair of two-run homers for Baker Automotive.

TBA 20, Stardust 5
