Sandy Koufax went 7 strong innings as the Beale Street Blues III won in dramatic fashion over the Kemper Messengers by a score of 3 to 1 at Turner Field '05.

Beale Street came up with the deciding runs in the top of the 9th inning scoring 3 runs utilizing 3 base hits. Richie Ashburn opened up the inning nicely when he laced a base-knock. Billy Grabarkewitz came next and he reached on an error. Jackie Robinson then singled which scored a run. Roberto Clemente stepped in and he reached on an error scoring one more run. Wes Parker stepped into the box and hit a single scoring the final run of the inning. The teams had been locked in a scoreless duel until the 7th inning.

The win was credited to Luis Arroyo(3-2) who went 2 innings allowing no runs. Dennis Eckersley(1-1) was the losing pitcher in relief. He allowed 2 hits and 1 walk in 1 inning.

Eckersley was feeling apologetic in the locker room, 'I sure let that one get away. What a miserable feeling to let the guys down; and our fans. One minute things are looking great, then. BOOM, it's over with! I just hope I get a chance to redeem myself real soon!'
