Earl Averill connected with a 'big fly' and Dennis Bennett took a no-hitter into the 6th inning as the Diplomatic Immunity rallied impressively to win in dramatic style over Maine Select, 5 to 4.

Diplomatic had the winning rally in the 9th inning with 3 runs utilizing 4 base hits. Averill led off and started the attack as he doubled. Ken Griffey Jr. followed and he cracked a two-run shot (his 4th of the season). Troy Glaus followed, but he was set down on strikes. Carlton Fisk dug into the batters box next, but he struck out. Rogers Hornsby stepped into the box and laced a one-base hit. Josh Hamilton kept things alive and doubled scoring the final run of the inning. Overall Diplomatic out-hit Maine 10 to 4.

The win went to Billy Wagner(2-0) who allowed 4 runs in 3 innings. The left-handed Bennett lost his chance for a no-hitter when Yogi Berra doubled with one out in the 6th inning. Joe Nathan(0-2) was the losing pitcher in relief.

Nathan was feeling apologetic in the locker room, 'I sure let that one get away. What a miserable feeling to let the guys down; and our fans. One minute things are looking great, then. BOOM, it's over with! I just hope I get a chance to redeem myself real soon!'
