Joe Black(1-3) and Sandy Koufax(5-7) locked horns in a pitcher's duel with Black and the Antioch Switcharoos coming out on top of the Pittsburgh Whistlers 3 to 1.

The game started off with Antioch taking the lead in the first with 2 runs using 3 hits. Jim Gilliam led off and started the attack as he slapped a one-base hit. Max Carey was next and he slapped a base-hit. Tim Raines then doubled plating a run. Chipper Jones stepped in and he hit a sacrifice fly scoring the final run of the inning. The early run support proved sufficient for Black and Antioch. That was all the run support Black required. Pittsburgh had a chance in the 9th but they came up short.

Black got help from George Suggs who was credited with his 10th save. MSS was in a contemplative mood after the tough loss, 'It is really hard to lose this kind of a game. It may seem weird to some, but it is easier to take the occasional blow-out loss. It is the ones that just barely get away that hurt so much - like this one!'
