Left fielder Tommy Davis left the yard and had 2 RBI as the Saint Louis Spirits staged a dramatic comeback over the La Junta Coyotes by a score of 4 to 3 at Rogers Centre '05.

Saint Louis came through with the game-winning runs in the 9th inning with 2 runs on 2 hits. Frank Thomas led off and started the rally when he doubled. Roger Maris was next to the plate and he drew a walk. After an out was recorded, Ron Davis stepped up to the plate and he uncorked a wild pitch. Lance Parrish came up and he lined a one-base hit giving Saint Louis the victory as 22,431 happy fans celebrated wildly. Although they lost, La Junta did out-hit Saint Louis 11 to 8.

The victory went to Mellie Wolfgang(1-0) who went 1 inning, allowing no runs. Davis(0-1) took the loss in relief. He pitched 1/3 of an inning giving up 2 hits and 1 walk.

Joe Allen 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, Jeffrey Reed, feels right now - and it's not very good. It's terrible when you come up on the short end of one of these!'
