The Republicans started off the evening's scoring with a three-run first inning, but the Democrats stormed back in the second behind the hitting of right fielder Staggers. With two out and a 3-2 score, Staggers blasted a mighty RBt double off the left field wall to even things up. Staggers' hit one of only five extra base hits in the game (all doubles), was widely acknowl- edged by players and fans as the longest of the evening. After falling behind 4-3, the Democrats again evened the score in the fourth inning, as Staggers drew a walk to keep the rally alive. However, during the second half of the game Staggers saw no action and the Republicans took control, eventually winning 9-6. The Republicans thus won the best of five .~ries that began in 1986, the series having been tied 2-2 be~)re Tuesday's contest.
