19,209 fans watched an exciting game at Hilltop Park '11. The Hidden Variables topped the Memphis Magicians by the slimmest of margins, 3 to 2.

Hidden started with a bang, jumping out to an early lead in their half of the first scoring 2 runs using 2 hits. Billy Hamilton led off and started the attack as he laced a base-hit. Pedro Guerrero was the next batter, but he struck out. Hamilton then stole second base. Willie Mays got his chance to keep things going, but he went down on strikes. George Foster came to the plate and smashed a two-run homer (his 28th of the season). Memphis made it exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to push the needed runs across.

Jim Hardin(6-6) got the win allowing 2 runs in 8 and 2/3 innings. Rube Benton was credited with his 1st save. Rick Rhoden(5-7) was hit with the loss.

'Fundamentals, fundamentals, fundamentals' said Mark McClellan after the game. 'We lost this game today because we didn't follow the instructions every Little Leaguer hears every day.'
