Lefty O'Doul ripped 2 homeruns and had 3 RBI as the Streetwalking Cheetahs staged a dramatic comeback over the Buzai Hu Too by a score of 10 to 9 at Fenway Park '67.

O'Doul was a seemingly constant irritant to the hometown fans as he provided much of the offense for the visitors. He doubled in the 2nd inning, delivered a base-hit in the 4th inning, smashed a bases-empty 'big-fly' in the 5th inning and cracked a two-run shot (his 3rd of the season) in the 9th inning. Both teams finished the game with 13 hits.

The victory was credited to Chief Bender(2-0) who went 6 innings, allowing 6 runs. Robb Nen earned his 5th save. Don Drysdale(0-2) was the losing pitcher. He was hit hard and gave up 11 hits and 5 walks in 8 and 2/3 innings.

'I was a little good, a little bad and a little ugly.' said Bender, 'I was just giving us a chance to win.'
