Babe Adams was able to finish what he started and was credited with a complete game as the Chicago Black Sox 6 topped the Born to Run Barnstormers by a score of 3 to 2 at Yankee Stadium '56.

The deciding run was scored by Chicago in the 9th. Marty Marion drew a walk. Marion stole second with some aggressive base running. King Kelly then laid down a sacrifice bunt. Cap Anson followed and he hit a sacrifice fly scoring the run. Born to Run had 9 hits in the game while Chicago had 5, but Chicago had the more timely hits.

Adams(9-6) lasted until the end allowing 2 runs for the win. The losing pitcher was John Wetteland(1-2) in relief. 'I always am most impressed when a pitcher finds a way to win even without his best stuff,' Kid Gleason said after the game. 'Adams did not have command of his pitches most of the afternoon, but he proved he really knew how to pitch!'
