First baseman Don Mattingly connected with a 'big fly' and had 2 RBI as the Crow's Nest club won in dramatic fashion over the Conejo Acorns by a score of 10 to 9 at Yankee Stadium '56.

Crow's Nest erupted with the game winning runs in the top of the 9th inning scoring 2 runs on 3 hits. Mattingly led off and started the rally when he doubled. Cal Ripken came to the plate and doubled knocking in a run. Kirby Puckett then tripled scoring the final run of the inning. Conejo was out-hit by Crow's Nest, 13 hits to 10.

The victory was credited to Billy Wagner(1-2) who went 2 innings, allowing 2 runs. The losing pitcher was Eric Gagne(4-4) in relief. He pitched 1/3 of an inning and surrendered 3 hits and no walks.

After the game, it took a long while before Supersore emerged from his office. In a subdued tone he answered only a couple of questions. He concluded with, 'Fellows, sorry I'm not in a very talkative mood this afternoon, as I think you'll understand. I'm sure you'll find the banter a lot more light-hearted over in the Crow's Nest locker room.'
