First baseman Willie McCovey cracked 2 homeruns and had 4 RBI as the Arlington Aces won in dramatic fashion over the Camden Riversharks by a score of 10 to 9 at Shea Stadium '71.

Arlington came up with the deciding runs in the 9th inning scoring 2 runs. After an out was recorded, McCovey got things rolling when he drew a walk. David Ortiz was next to the plate, but was promptly struck out. Arky Vaughan then drew a walk. Carl Yastrzemski followed and he doubled giving Arlington the victory and sending the 24,141 home-town fans home happy. Arlington won despite being out-hit by Camden 12 hits to 8.

Danny Darwin(3-2) went 1 inning allowing no runs for the victory. Eric Gagne(1-1) suffered the loss in relief. Ham Sammich was in great spirits in his post-game interview. Yet, when asked about his feelings after the thrilling comeback victory, he volunteered, 'I'll tell you this much - I know how my counterpart, Dean Moriarty, feels right now - and it's not very good. It's terrible when you come up on the short end of one of these!'
