Dale Murray had a strong outing and Rod Carew slammed a homerun and had 4 RBI as the Memphis Hound Dogs defeated the Beale Street Blues II by the score of 7 to 6 at Forbes Field '57.

In the 6th inning Memphis scored 5 runs with the help of 5 hits. The crucial at-bat was provided by Carew, who elicited a roar from the hometown fans when he belted a three-run homer (his 1st of the season). Beale Street threatened in the 9th but their rally came up short.

The win was credited to Murray(2-1) who went 3 innings allowing no runs. Tom Henke gained credit for his 2nd save. Don Drysdale(0-1) was the losing pitcher. He was knocked around by Memphis, allowing 10 hits and 2 walks in 5 and 2/3 innings.

Louis Armstrong was clearly disappointed after the game. 'It was a manager's nightmare out there', he said, 'We should have had this one.'
