  • Blaster McGraw, a baseball star with the Washington Lasers, and an old college friend of Ace's, is kidnapped just before the final game of the World Series. A gambling boss known as the Wheel is the primary suspect, and so Ace and Jake do some investigating in their time off. They find that Wheel does have Blaster hostage, and is working with Amber, Doc Terror's daughter. Ace manages to rescue Blaster from one of Terror's old bases and get him to the game on time, but Wheel decides to attack the Mega-Dome, and steal the game receipts. The Centurions have to stop him and ensure that the game can go ahead. Science Lesson: Robotics by Doc Terror.moreless

    • Episode writer Larry DiTillo also wrote a baseball-themed episode of the 1988 cartoon of Superman ("Triple Play"), also produced by Ruby-Spears.

    • Features some interesting alternate (non-stock) beam-down footage of Jake with a Wild Weasel/Detonator combo and Ace with Skybolt.

    Trivia (1)

    • During one beam-down sequence, Ace and Jake's voices are swapped when they say "Power Extreme!"

    Allusions (1)

    • The title of this episode is a warped parody of the all-familiar baseball saying, "Three Strikes and You're Out!"
