Second baseman Wally Backman had 2 base hits at Comiskey Park '41 as the Champaign Blue Moons beat the Minnesota Mobsters by the count of 5 to 4.

Champaign had the winning rally in the bottom of the 8th inning with 3 runs on 3 hits. Backman led off and keyed the rally when he drew a walk. Birdie Tebbetts came next and he singled. After an out was recorded, Jim Gantner stepped in and he lined a one-base hit driving in a run. Rodney Scott followed and he laced a base-hit bringing in another run. Kenny Lofton stepped into the box and would hit into a force play scoring the final run of the inning. Minnesota threatened in the 9th but their rally came up short.

The winning pitcher was Al Brazle(1-0) who allowed no runs in 1/3 of an inning. Tom Henke recorded the save, his 2nd. Frank Linzy(0-1) was charged with the loss in relief.

'Just one or two mistakes were all it took to beat us today' Tony Toscano said. 'We take these games one day at a time, but this one was hard to take.'
