19,171 fans were treated to a fine game at Penmar Park (NeL) as only one run separated the combatants at game's end. The Absolute Zeros snapped their 5 game slide and won by the slimmest of margins, 7 to 6.

Absolute started with a bang, jumping out to an early lead in their half of the first scoring 2 runners on 3 hits. Humble made it exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to push the needed runs across.

The victory was credited to Gary Gentry(3-1) who went 6 innings, allowing 4 runs. Michael Jackson recorded the save, his 4th. Hal Schumacher(4-3) took the loss. He allowed 3 homeruns in 6 innings of work.

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