30,020 fans were treated to a fine game at Penmar Park (NeL) as only one run separated the combatants at game's end. The BS Detroit Overlords III won by the slimmest of margins, 8 to 7.

The home town fans were very appreciative of the fine hitting performance provided by Baby Doll Jacobson. He blasted a two-run home run (his 15th of the season) in the 4th inning and doubled which was good for two runs in the 5th inning. Mission made it exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to push the needed runs across.

Craig Lefferts(11-6) got credit for the victory, pitching 2 innings and allowing 1 run. Lefferts got help from Chick Brandom who was credited with his 21st save. Dave Roberts(3-6) was charged with the loss in relief. He gave up 3 hits and 1 walk in 1 and 1/3 innings.

The BS Detroit ballclub's record now stands at 62-54. With this loss, Mission has a 4-6 record of late, 46-70 overall.
