In a dramatic ending the Shakey Town Quackers staged a comeback and held on to win over the Lazy Daisy Ranchers by the count of 5 to 4.

Shakey Town scored the decisive runs in a big top of the 9th inning when they tallied 4 runs on 3 hits. The critical plate appearance was by Jimmy Collins, who quieted the crowd when he doubled which was good for two runs. Although they lost, Lazy Daisy did out-hit Shakey Town 10 to 7.

Dutch Leonard(13-1) picked up the victory, allowing 4 runs in 8 innings. Leonard was helped out by Eric Gagne who recorded his 13th save. Andy Hassler(0-2) absorbed the loss in relief.

Joe "Whiskey" Durkin was very happy after the game, 'It's great to come back and win it in your last at bats! Our guys just wouldn't give up. And did you see the fans - one minute they're laughing and screaming down all sorts of unprintable stuff at our guys - the next minute - SILENCE! Yes sir, a very enjoyable win this afternoon!'
