Russ Ford whiffed 10 batters at Cleveland Stadium '51 as the Sacramento River Cats came back dramatically to top the Hammerin Hank's by the score of 5 to 4.

Sacramento came up with the deciding runs in the 9th inning with 2 runs using 3 hits. Jake Stenzel opened up the inning nicely when he drew a walk. Alan Trammell stepped up to the plate and he lined a base-hit. Stenzel then suprised everyone by stealing home. Bill Sweeney followed and he smacked a single. Billy Hamilton stepped into the box and laid down a sacrifice bunt. Ted Williams added to the uprising and drew a walk to load the bases. Jimmie Foxx was next and he laced a one-base hit resulting in an exciting win for Sacramento and a wild post-game celebration by the home town fans. Sacramento had 10 hits for the afternoon.

Ford(9-7) lasted until the end allowing 4 runs for the win. J.J. Putz(2-5) ended up with the loss in relief. 'That was exciting!,' Bryce Harper said. 'I would have paid money to watch this one.'
