The Memphis Sixers came roaring back in the top of the ninth to spoil the anticipated celebration of the hometown fans. The final score,, was 9 to 5.

Memphis put a big number on the board in the 9th inning, which proved too much for Foghorn to overcome when they exploded for 7 runs on 5 hits. The crucial at-bat was provided by Tony Perez, who helped quiet the crowd when he cracked a two-run shot (his 18th of the season). Memphis finished with 9 hits while Foghorn ended up with 5.

The winning pitcher was Bob McClure(5-1) who allowed no runs in 2 and 2/3 innings. The loss was charged to Jim Shaw(1-4) in relief. He allowed 1 hit and no walks in 1/3 of an inning.

After the game, it took a long while before Snyde Lee Whiplash emerged from his office. In a subdued tone he answered only a couple of questions. He concluded with, 'Fellows, sorry I'm not in a very talkative mood this afternoon, as I think you'll understand. I'm sure you'll find the banter a lot more light-hearted over in the Memphis locker room.'
