The Black Cadillac nipped the Copper Rooters 5 to 4 at Royals Stadium '78 in a hard fought contest.

Black came up with 2 runs in the bottom of the 5th inning when they had 4 base hits. Tony Gwynn led off and started the attack as he tripled. Rogers Hornsby stepped into the batter's box and he banged out a single driving in a run. Hornsby stole second with some aggressive base running. Jimmie Foxx stepped in and he smacked a single. Chipper Jones stepped into the box and delivered a one-base hit scoring the final run of the inning. Copper threatened in the 9th but their rally came up short.

Don Drysdale(1-0) got the win allowing 3 runs in 6 innings. Hoyt Wilhelm got the save, his 2nd. Atley Donald(0-1) was tagged with the loss.

Labrat was in a contemplative mood after the tough loss, 'It is really hard to lose this kind of a game. It may seem weird to some, but it is easier to take the occasional blow-out loss. It is the ones that just barely get away that hurt so much - like this one!'
