Luis Tiant was able to finish what he started and was credited with a complete game as the Kensington Clowns rallied impressively to win in dramatic style over North Shore Rails, 4 to 3.

Kensington had the winning rally in the bottom of the 9th inning scoring 3 runs on 5 hits. Roberto Clemente led off and keyed the rally when he laced a single. After an out was recorded, Wes Parker stepped up to the plate and he doubled which scored a run. Mickey Stanley then delivered a single plating one more runner. Terry Puhl was next to the plate, but was promptly struck out. Larry Bowa stepped into the box and slapped a single. Bowa took off for second and slid in with a stolen base. Wally Backman followed and he was walked intentionally to load the bases. Gabby Street then ripped a base-knock giving Kensington the victory and sending the 48,670 home-town fans home happy. Kensington had a total of 8 hits for the game.

Tiant(6-0), allowing 3 runs for the game, picked up the victory. The losing pitcher was Gene Garber(2-1) in relief. He pitched 1/3 of an inning allowing 3 hits and 1 walk.

Krusty was all smiles after the ballgame, 'It sure was looking pretty dim there for a while, but our guys never gave up - and neither did our fans - they kept cheering us on. What a sweet win!'
