Craig Biggio rocketed 2 homeruns and had 4 RBI as the Marvel Asgardians staged a dramatic comeback over the Bee Ridge Ballbusters by a score of 8 to 5 at Veterans Stadium '75.

Marvel had the game winning rally in the top of the 9th inning when they tallied 4 runs on 3 hits. The big moment was provided by Biggio, who helped quiet the crowd when he cleared the fences for a two-run home run (his 2nd of the season). Bee Ridge was out-hit by Marvel, 12 hits to 7.

Stan Coveleski(1-0) allowed 5 runs in 8 innings, and picked up the victory. Ted Abernathy was credited with his 1st save. Luis Tiant(0-1) was the losing pitcher. He was touched for 3 homeruns in his 8 innings of work.

Bubba Ballbuster 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'
