Sandy Koufax dominated striking out 12 Storm batters at Comiskey Park '55 where the Beale Street Blues III beat the ice-cold Storm Riders 6 to 0.

Koufax(8-5) pitched one of his finer games as he simply was too much for the Storm batters. He surrendered only 6 hits and 3 walks in 9 innings. Both teams finished the game with 6 hits.

Ewell Blackwell(9-6) was the loser. Captain Morgan was upset after the game. 'I don't like to complain but did you see that umpires strike zone?', he said. 'Maybe they ought to start calling the strike zone the way it's printed in the rule book.'
