45,856 fans watched an exciting game at Chase Field The Dallas Dirtbags
topped the Northridge Poodles by the slimmest of margins, 5 to 4.
Dallas drew first blood, jumping out to an early lead in the first inning as
they scored 2 runs on 2 base hits. The key at-bat was by Paul Konerko, who
excited the crowd when he popped a two-run clout over the fence (his 16th of
the season). Northridge made it exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to
push the needed runs across.
Back to the ’90s
Tom Gordon(7-10) was on top of his game in San Jose as he tossed a beauty of a
no-hitter against the South Amboy Sea Dogs. The San Jose Apocalypse won by a
score of 1 to 0.
Gordon was spectacular. He walked 4 South Amboy batters. The tension started
to build around the 6th inning. By the 9th inning the crowd was electrified.
South Amboy was retired without difficulty in the 9th.
Tom Glavine(11-16) was the loser. He pitched 7 and 2/3 innings allowing 7
hits and 4 walks. It took a while to pry Gordon way from his teammates as
they all wanted to show their appreciation and joy. Finally, however, Reaper
got to offer his own congratulations with a big bear hug and the comment,
‘That was one of the best pitched games I have seen in all my years in
baseball – Gordon was masterful out there this afternoon!’
Youmans(16-9) was in control of the game from the outset. He allowed just 9
hits and 2 walks in 9 innings. Champaign and Boston each finished the
afternoon with 9 hits.
Ron Darling(5-10) was the losing pitcher. When asked about his strikeout
total for the game, Youmans offered, ‘The fan’s really got into it. It is
fun to see them tally up the strikeout totals up there in the stands.
Fortunately, I kept them busy this afternoon – of course, it would be all for
naught without the ‘W’.’
