The left-handed Downing lost his chance for a no-hitter when Sam Thompson tripled with two outs in the 6th inning. Memphis had 13 hits for the afternoon while Helium had 2.

Downing was helped out by Hoyt Wilhelm who recorded his 9th save. Walt Masterson(5-1) absorbed the loss. He struggled with his control issuing 10 walks in 5 innings.
