Leon Culberson had 4 hits at Minute Maid Field '05 as the Absolute Zeros staged a comeback win over the Tampa Barnstormer 2 by the count of 6 to 4.

Absolute erupted with the game winning runs in the top of the 9th inning with 3 runs using 6 hits. Willie McCovey led off and started the rally when he doubled. Nellie Fox stepped up to the plate and he hit a single. Eddie Foster then laced a base-knock knocking in a run. Harold Baines was up next and he laced a base-hit scoring another run. Baby Doll Jacobson stepped into the box and singled scoring the final run of the inning. Absolute out-hit Tampa for the game, 15 hits to 5.

Bob McClure(5-2) went 1 inning allowing 2 runs for the win. Ed Farmer earned the save, his 2nd. Hank Robinson(4-2) was the loser in relief.

Lord Kelvin was feeling mighty fine as he answered questions in his office after the game, 'Now that was one fine ending! Did you see how the crowd just sat there in silence after the winning run scored? Here we are celebrating wildly, and the stadium is cloaked in virtual silence. Weird. but GREAT!'
