Catcher Glenn Myatt had 2 base hits and 2 RBI at Yankee Stadium '56 as the Lima Lumberjacks staged a comeback win over the Conejo Acorns by the count of 5 to 4.

Lima had the winning rally in the 9th inning scoring 3 runs utilizing 4 base hits. Willie Keeler led off and keyed the rally when he lashed a single. Bobby Clark stepped up next and he delivered a base-hit. Myatt then doubled scoring two teammates. Stan Javier followed and he doubled scoring the final run of the inning. Lima totaled 9 hits on the afternoon.

Dennis Eckersley(7-5) picked up the victory, allowing no runs in 1 inning. Eckersley got help from Tug McGraw who was credited with his 1st save. Eric Gagne(6-7) ended up with the loss in relief. He pitched 1/3 of an inning giving up 4 hits and no walks.

Pablo Bunyan was all smiles after the game, 'To pull a game out in your last at bats, is a beautiful feeling - and did you see how quiet it got out there? You could have heard a pin drop when we took the lead. But, hey, that's what makes baseball so great - as the great sage Yogi Berra says, 'it's not over 'til its over.'
