47,400 fans were treated to a fine game at Minute Maid Field '05 as only one run separated the combatants at game's end. The Kenesaw Curse #4 won by the slimmest of margins, 9 to 8.

The Santiago fans didn't appreciate the big day Larry Walker had. He lifted one out of the park for a two run home run (his 2nd of the season) in the 1st inning and tripled scoring two baserunners in the 5th inning. Santiago threatened in the 9th but their rally came up short.

The win went to Barney Schultz(1-0) who allowed no runs in 2 innings. Dave Smith gained credit for his 1st save. George Bradley(0-1) was the loser. He allowed a few too many baserunners giving up 13 hits and 2 walks in 8 innings.

Judge Landis was beaming after the game, 'Not only were we making good contact, but a lot of balls we hit seemed to have 'eyes'! I just love winning these tight ones! It was just our day - no doubt about it!'
