St. Cloud exploded for four runs in the top of the ninth, half of them after a crucial error by Dawgs third baseman Teahen. Memphis threatened in the bottom of the ninth, scoring two, but went down with the tying run in the on-deck circle.

PS. After the XBL game the Dawgs manager got one back on the Commish, when his 1973 Cardinals defeated the 1973 Yankees 7-0, behind a complete-game shutout by Bob Gibson.
