Aviators Come Back Late, Nip Diamond Club
The Virginia Diamond Club got a superb performance from pitcher José Rocha. Still, it wasn't enough to beat North Carolina. The Aviators won the game, 5-4. In spite of the loss, Rocha was named the player of the game. He threw 6 innings of 3-hit ball. North Carolina has 3 straight wins, Virginia 3 straight losses.

Had Jim Simpson not delivered a key base hit in the bottom of the eighth, the outcome might have been different. Instead, with two down and a runner on 1st, Simpson hit a 2-run home run. That made the score 5-4, in favor of the Aviators.

"I'm trying to keep it simple," said Simpson. "Just do my job."
