In a good matchup it was the Alberton Almighty 9, the Beale Street Blues III 7 at Comiskey Park '55.

Beale Street never recovered after Alberton took the lead in the top of the 4th inning when they tallied 3 runs on 3 hits. The critical plate appearance was by Nap Lajoie, who silenced the crowd when he cracked a two-run shot (his 8th of the season). Beale Street made it exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to push the needed runs across.

The win was credited to Butch Henry(9-4) who went 6 innings allowing 4 runs. Lee Smith recorded his 16th save. Catfish Hunter(12-7) absorbed the loss. He was knocked around, surrendering 6 runs in 4 and 2/3 innings.

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