Babe Ruth ripped 2 homeruns and had 5 RBI as the Mission Impossible defeated the Club 33 Royals in 10 innings 9 to 6 at Forbes Field '57.

The game was deadlocked at 6 after nine full innings. Mission won the hard fought contest in the 10th inning. Jim Beauchamp got things going when he hit a single. Ray Fosse followed and he laid down a sacrifice bunt. George Van Haltren got his turn next, but he was a strikeout victim. Rogers Hornsby stepped in and he was walked intentionally. Ruth stepped into the box and lofted a three-run bomb (his 40th of the season). This was a game of many highs and lows for the home town fans, as the lead kept changing - 5 times in all.

The victory was credited to Eddie Rommel(3-7) who went 2 innings, allowing no runs. Bruce Sutter recorded the save, his 19th. Andy Hassler(4-5) was the losing pitcher in relief. His ERA increased from 5.10 to 5.43 as he allowed 3 runs in 1 inning.
