Firebirds Win, 6-3, at Chicago
The Atlanta Firebirds trumped the Chicago Cubs, 6-3, at Wrigley Field. Atlanta left fielder Don Jones was terrific. He went 2-4 with 2 triples and a walk. He drove in 2 runs and scored once. The winning pitcher was Lachlan Wells. His record is now 3-0. The right-hander went 5.1 innings, allowing 3 runs on 5 hits for the Firebirds. The Firebirds sport a record of 54-97.

Jones had a game-changing triple in the top of the sixth. On a first pitch fastball from Daury Torrez, he banged a 2-run triple to right-center, giving the Firebirds a 5-3 lead. It was the 6th triple of the year for Jones.

"I felt good up there," said Jones. "I saw the ball well."
