The The 60 Limping Ballbusters came roaring back in the top of the ninth to spoil the anticipated celebration of the hometown fans. The final score,, was 10 to 8.

The 60 Limping won the game with a rally in the top of the 9th inning with 3 runs. Claudell Washington opened up the inning nicely when he drew a walk. Elston Howard was next and he drew a walk. Steve Sax was a strikeout victim, unable to help out. Joe Carter stepped in and he belted a three-run homer (his 6th of the season). The game was a wild affair with the lead changing hands 5 times.

Jimmy Dygert(2-3) went 2 innings allowing 3 runs for the win. John Wetteland(3-3) was tagged with the loss in relief. After the game, it took a long while before Louis Armstrong emerged from his office. In a subdued tone he answered only a couple of questions. He concluded with, 'Fellows, sorry I'm not in a very talkative mood this afternoon, as I think you'll understand. I'm sure you'll find the banter a lot more light-hearted over in the The 60 Limping locker room.'
