19,327 fans were treated to a fine game at Forbes Field '41 as only one run separated the combatants at game's end. The Reading Liquors won by the slimmest of margins, 3 to 2.

Reading took the lead for keeps in the bottom of the 6th inning scoring one runner. Chicago threatened in the 9th but Reading was able to put down the rally.

The win went to Dick Hall(3-3) who allowed no runs in 2 and 2/3 innings. Hall got help from Dick Drago who earned his 1st save. Joe Horlen(13-9) took the loss.

Earl Weaver was in a talkative mood in the clubhouse, 'Great game! If only we could win all of the close ones - wouldn't that be nice! Since that's not going to happen, I think I'll savor this one for a little while.'
