26,418 fans watched an exciting game at Minute Maid Field '05. The Gadsden Bears topped the Houston Colt 45's by the slimmest of margins, 4 to 3.

The deciding run was scored by Gadsden in the top of the 8th. Willie Stargell doubled. After an out was recorded, Jeff Montgomery stepped up to the plate and he let a pitch get away from him. One out later, Al Martin came up and he drew a walk. Montgomery then bounced one in the dirt for a wild pitch scoring the run. Houston had a chance in the 9th but they came up short.

The win was credited to Jack Pfiester(8-7) who went 7 innings allowing 3 runs. Pfiester got help from Al McBean who was credited with his 5th save. Montgomery(5-4) took the loss in relief.

'I just wanted to give my team a chance to win.' said Pfiester, 'I got burned on a couple of pitches. But we won the game, and that's all that matters.'
