One run was the difference at Royals Stadium '78 as the BS Madness defeated the Black Cadillac 3 to 2.

BS had the game winning rally in the 8th inning with 2 runs using 4 hits. After an out was recorded, Orel Hershiser began the rally when he stroked a single. Paul Molitor was next and he delivered a one-base hit. Ken Griffey Jr. then laced a single to load the bases. Lou Gehrig followed and he lashed a base-hit plating two runs. Black had a chance in the 9th but they came up short.

Hershiser(4-4) went 7 innings allowing 1 run for the victory. Willie Hernandez recorded the save, his 9th. The loss was charged to Hoyt Wilhelm(1-5) in relief.

'You have to give Black credit, they fought us tough to the end' JB said. 'It could have gone either way, but I'm glad we pulled out the victory.'
