The Memphis Magicians finally stopped their 5 slide with the victory and nipped the Beale Street Blues III 6 to 5 at Comiskey Park '55 in a hard fought contest.

Memphis came up with the deciding runs in the 8th inning with 3 runs on 6 hits. Harry Heilmann kicked off the action when he laced a one-base hit. George Sisler stepped up next and he laced a base-hit. Rev Cannady then delivered a single to load the bases. Chick Galloway was up next and he laced a base-hit scoring two baserunners. Ivey Wingo came to the plate and slapped a single to load the bases. Bob Seeds was a strikeout victim, unable to help out. Bucky Dent dug into the batters box next, but he struck out. Tris Speaker then lashed a single scoring the final run of the inning. Beale Street was retired without difficulty in the bottom of the 9th.

Bob McClure(5-2) got the win allowing no runs in 1/3 of an inning. Eric Gagne earned his 21st save. Fergie Jenkins(9-7) took the loss. 'We really needed this win' said Mark McClellan. 'That first drink of water at the end of a drought sure does taste good!'
