In a dramatic ending the Chicago LumberKings staged a comeback and held on to win over the Nyc Nyc by the count of 4 to 3.

Chicago had the winning rally in the top of the 9th inning with 3 runs utilizing 2 base hits. Wade Boggs started the inning off right when he drew a walk. Chuck Knoblauch stepped into the batter's box and he tripled driving in a run. After an out was recorded, Willie Wells stepped in and he bombed a two-run dinger (his 6th of the season). Chicago had 7 hits overall, while Nyc had 4.

Rube Waddell(1-0) went 8 innings allowing 3 runs for the victory. Tom Gordon got the save, his 3rd. Dennis Eckersley(1-1) was the losing pitcher in relief.

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