Mike Piazza had 4 hits and 2 RBI at Polo Grounds '41 as the Las Vegas Whales won in dramatic fashion coming back to beat the ice-cold Republic Thunderbolts by the count of 9 to 6.

Las Vegas came up with the deciding runs in the 9th inning when they scored 5 runs on 4 hits. The highlight belonged to Wally Post, who came through for the home fans when he launched a Grand Slam homerun (his 24th of the season). Republic was not lacking for run support as they scored in 5 separate innings, yet victory eluded them as they seemed to forget that pitching is also needed to win ballgames.

Clarence Mitchell(2-4) got the win allowing 1 run in 1 and 1/3 innings. Jerry Fosnow(4-3) was the losing pitcher in relief. He gave up 6 runs in 1 and 2/3 innings and saw his ERA jump from 4.70 to 5.66.

Moe Greene was all smiles after the ballgame, 'It sure was looking pretty dim there for a while, but our guys never gave up - and neither did our fans - they kept cheering us on. What a sweet win!'
