Jimmie Foxx smacked 2 homeruns as the Cleveland Comeback Kids won in dramatic fashion over the House Baratheon Black Stags by a score of 11 to 8 at Wrigley Field '66.

Cleveland came up with the deciding runs in the top of the 9th inning as they scored 6 runs on 5 base hits. The crucial at-bat was provided by Foxx, who silenced Wrigley Field '66 as he launched a Grand Slam homerun (his 42nd of the season). Despite scoring in 5 separate innings, House Baratheon could not get the win.

Mariano Rivera(4-3) allowed 2 runs in 1 and 1/3 innings, and picked up the victory. Eric Gagne recorded his 27th save. The losing pitcher was Mike Caldwell(1-1) in relief.

'We just kept swinging the bats and didn't give up,' Foxx said. 'If you just keep trying good things can happen!'
