The Kindergarten Allstars edged the Small Ball Wonders at Anaheim Stadium '77 by the score of 3 to 2.

Small Ball was unable to recover after Kindergarten went ahead in the 2nd inning scoring a single run using 2 hits. Small Ball threatened in the 9th but their rally came up short.

John Burkett(4-4) got the win allowing 1 run in 7 and 1/3 innings. Burkett got relief help from Woodie Fryman who gained credit for his 8th save. The loss was charged to Rube Benton(3-4).

'We just made a lot of mistakes, mostly mental,' Eddie Gaedel said. 'It's bad enough when the other team beats you, but when you start beating yourselves, that's really bad.'
