Barry Latman went 7 strong innings and left fielder Babe Ruth lofted one into the 'cheap seats' and had 2 RBI at Yankee Stadium '56 as the Conejo Acorns came back dramatically to top the Crow's Nest club by the score of 5 to 4.

Conejo won the game with a rally in the 9th inning scoring 3 runs using 3 hits. Luke Easter started the scoring when he blasted a solo shot (his 2nd of the season). Joe Mauer stepped up to the plate and he banged out a single. Ruth then blasted a two-run home run (his 13th of the season) resulting in an exciting win for Conejo and a raucous post-game celebration by the home town fans. Overall Conejo out-hit Crow's Nest 12 to 4.

Doug Bair(1-0) went 1 inning allowing 1 run for the win. Billy Wagner(0-2) was charged with the loss in relief. 'We just wouldn't give up,' Ruth said. 'Much of the credit goes to our fans - they were with us the whole way.'
