The victory was credited to Mellie Wolfgang(2-0) who went 3 innings, allowing 2 runs. Al McBean(0-1) took the loss in relief. Joe Allen was ebullient after the game, 'It's great to win a hard fought game like that. Our guys just weren't going to be denied. And did you see the fans - they were going wild! Yes sir, a very enjoyable win this afternoon!'
