In a dramatic ending the Camden Riversharks staged a comeback and held on to win over the Champaign Blue Moons by the count of 9 to 7.

Camden came through with the game-winning runs in the top of the 9th inning scoring 4 runners on 3 hits. The key offensive moment was provided by Frank Robinson, who deflated the spirits of the home town crowd when he smacked a three-run homer (his 40th of the season). Both teams totaled 10 hits on the afternoon.

Harvey Haddix(2-0) was the winner allowing no runs in 1/3 of an inning. Eric Gagne earned the save, his 25th. Joe Nathan(1-4) was charged with the loss in relief. He pitched 1 and 1/3 innings giving up 2 hits and 1 walk.

Bill Mulvaney was understandably not very talkative after his team's tough loss. He quickly showered and changed and when asked about the game had a terse, yet polite response, 'Hey fellows, that game was a heart-breaker to lose. Our guys gave it their all and played well - fate just wasn't smilin' on us this afternoon'
