Oops. I meant the 6 and 7 column. Anyway try:
find DIR | xargs ls -l | grep '/.*YOURTIMESTAMP_IN_FILENAME' | awk '{print $5, $6, $7, $8}'

Check different combinations and the result after every additional pipe:
find dir
find dir -type -f
find dir -type -f ls
find dir  | xargs ls -l 
find dir -type -f | xargs ls -l
find ... | xargs ... | grep ...
find ... | xargs ... | grep ... | awk '{print ...}'
find ... | awk '/DATESTAMP/ {print...}'
