Aviators Turn Back Illinois, 4-3
The Illinois Warhawks got a sterling performance from pitcher Ron McCullough, but the Aviators still prevailed, 4-3. McCullough was named the player of the game in a losing cause. He threw 7 innings of 5-hit ball. Lou Moore, credited with the save, is now 22 for 24 in save opportunities. North Carolina is now 55-40, Illinois 37-58.

Had David Ruíz not delivered a key base hit in the top of the seventh, the outcome might have been different. Instead, with two down and a runner on 1st, Ruíz hit a 2-run home run. That made the score 4-3, in favor of the Aviators.

"Say want you want about this team, they play nine innings hard," said North Carolina manager .
