Willie Mays had 3 base hits and 4 RBI at Comiskey Park '55 as the Hidden Variables pulled off a dramatic comeback beating the Beale Street Blues III by the count of 9 to 6.

Hidden came through with the game-winning runs in the top of the 9th inning when they scored 5 runs on 6 hits. The highlight belonged to Bobby Grich, who deflated the spirits of the home town crowd when he blasted a two-run home run (his 29th of the season). Beale Street went down quietly in the bottom of the 9th.

Mike Marshall(2-2) went 1 and 2/3 innings allowing 1 run for the victory. Mellie Wolfgang was credited with his 22nd save. Luis Arroyo(6-7) was charged with the loss in relief.

Louis de Broglie was feeling mighty fine as he answered questions in his office after the game, 'Now that was one fine ending! Did you see how the crowd just sat there in silence after the winning run scored? Here we are celebrating wildly, and the stadium is cloaked in virtual silence. Weird. but GREAT!'
