In a tight game it was the Born to Run Barnstormers 5, the Icconvert.com Icconvert.com 3 at Yankee Stadium '56.

Born to Run came up with 2 runs in the 2nd inning. Gil Hodges led off the inning for Born to Run when he smacked a single. Jack Graney stepped into the batter's box and he laid down a sacrifice bunt. Ken Caminiti then popped a two-run clout over the fence (his 14th of the season). That was all the offense they were to need. Icconvert.com made it exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to push the needed runs across.

The win went to Bobby Burke(7-14) who allowed 2 runs in 7 innings. John Wetteland got the save, his 18th. Willie Powell(10-10) was the loser. Bruce Springsteen 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.'
