26,407 fans were treated to a fine game at The Astrodome '71 as only one run separated the combatants at game's end. The Born to Run Barnstormers halted a 5 game slide and won by the slimmest of margins, 5 to 4.

The game was decided in the top of the 8th inning. Luis Gonzalez tripled. Mike Piazza stepped up to the plate and he hit a deep fly scoring the run. A wild and woolly affair, this game saw the lead change 5 times.

Gene Garber(2-3) got credit for the victory, pitching 3 innings and allowing no runs. John Wetteland earned his 3rd save. Nolan Ryan(2-1) took the loss.

'Ahhh, how sweet it is,' Bruce Springsteen sighed. 'That win feels like a tall, cool drink of water after spending far too much time in the desert lately.'
