Left fielder Manny Ramirez lofted one into the 'cheap seats' and had 4 RBI at Camden Yards '05 as the Hell's Kitchen Punishers won in dramatic fashion coming back to beat the Humble Hopefuls by the count of 7 to 5.

Hell's Kitchen scored the decisive runs in a big 9th inning scoring 4 runners on 2 hits. The key at-bat was by Bobby Grich, who disappointed the partisan crowd when he popped a two-run clout over the fence (his 11th of the season). Hell's Kitchen won despite being out-hit by Humble 15 hits to 8.

Bruce Sutter(2-1) got credit for the victory, pitching 2 innings and allowing no runs. Tom Henke gained credit for his 3rd save. Don McMahon(4-4) was tagged with the loss in relief. His ERA ballooned from 1.87 to 2.15 as he allowed 3 runs in 2 innings.

After the game, it took a long while before ballparkfranks 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 Hell's Kitchen locker room.'
