28,584 fans watched an exciting game at Polo Grounds '41. The Las Vegas Whales put 5 runs on the scoreboard in the 3rd inning and topped the Crow's Nest team by the slimmest of margins, 9 to 8.

Joe Dimaggio helped send the fans home happy. He tripled in the 1st inning, doubled in the 3rd inning and blasted a two-run home run (his 22nd of the season) in the 8th inning. Crow's Nest threatened in the 9th but their rally came up short.

The victory was credited to Dutch Leonard(11-7) who went 8 innings, allowing 3 runs. Al McBean earned his 8th save. Eddie Plank(4-12) took the loss. He was unable to control the Las Vegas offense and allowed 5 hits and 3 walks in 2 and 2/3 innings.

'We lose our concentration for one pitch, and we lose the game.' Edgar Allen Poe said after the game. 'Maybe now these guys will listen when I say they have to concentrate on EVERY pitch.'
