Two doubles in the bottom of the eighth became the critical deciding points of this game. For those that like pitching contests, this game was for you. Seventeen strikeouts kept the bases mostly empty. There were only nine hits, although the two teams combined to leave thirteen runners stranded on the bases. Lillian Farmer, actress Frances Farmer's mother, pitched a superb nine innings, despite taking the loss. Twice in the eighth, on full count pitches, Farmer served up uncharacteristically fat fastballs. First, Steve Case, former AOL CEO, clobbered the pitch over the third base bag, just fair; he ended up at secondbase. Then Murray Rothbard, distinguished capitalist economic theorist, pinch hit a double deep into left field and Case crossed the plate scoring the only run of the game.
