In the title bout, Jones allowed only Robert Gear's fourth inning single in an overpowering performance. Jones recorded 15 strikeouts and issued just one walk while cruising to the victory. Scott Westphal singled home Dave Arnold in the fourth inning to break a scoreless tie, and Dwight Hinton clubbed a three-run homer in the sixth to pad the margin of victory.
