Lee Tunnell mowed down 10 Daisy Hill batters and Willie Stargell smashed 2 homeruns and had 4 RBI at SAFECO Field '01 as the Gadsden Bears pulled off a dramatic comeback beating the Daisy Hill Blockheads in 10 innings by the count of 7 to 6.

Both teams were tied at 4 runs apiece after nine innings. Gadsden won it in the 10th inning. After an out was recorded, Stargell opened up the scoring as he hit a bases-empty home run (his 31st of the season). One out later, Zack Taylor stepped in and he drew a walk. Rube Benton then let loose a wild pitch. Don Lejohn came up and he singled, and an error was also committed, scoring another run. Roy Hartsfield stepped into the box and ripped a base-knock giving Gadsden the win much to the delight of the home town crowd. Gadsden and Daisy Hill each finished the afternoon with 12 hits.

The win was credited to Bob Shirley(4-1) who went 2 innings allowing 4 runs. Benton(6-7) was given the loss in relief. He was unable to retire a batter and surrendered 2 hits and no walks.
