In a thriller the Bluegrass Backups staged a dramatic comeback then held on to win over the Kindergarten Allstars by a score of 5 to 3 at Anaheim Stadium '77.

Bluegrass came through with the game-winning runs in the top of the 9th inning with 3 runs using 4 hits. Tommy Davis led off and keyed the rally when he delivered a base-hit. Davis stole second with some aggressive base running. Johnny Frederick then slapped a one-base hit. After an out was recorded, Don Kessinger stepped up to the plate and he doubled knocking home two runners. Bob Boone came to the plate and stroked a base-hit. Leo Cardenas contributed to the rally and hit a sacrifice fly scoring the final run of the inning. For the game Bluegrass out-hit Kindergarten 9 to 6.

The win went to Aurelio Lopez(2-1) who allowed no runs in 2 innings. Woodie Fryman(0-2) was the losing pitcher in relief. He was not very effective, surrendering 3 runs in 2 innings.

Connie McClanahan was very happy after the game, 'It's great to come back and win it in your last at bats! Our guys just wouldn't give up. And did you see the fans - one minute they're laughing and screaming down all sorts of unprintable stuff at our guys - the next minute - SILENCE! Yes sir, a very enjoyable win this afternoon!'
