Bob Meusel went yard at Dodger Stadium '78 where the Decatur Deadheads beat the Orlando Sled Dogs 5 to 2.

Decatur tallied 4 runs in the 3rd inning when they had 5 base hits. That early run support was enough for Eppa Rixey(4-6) and Decatur. Orlando threatened in the 9th but Decatur was able to put down the rally.

Joe Beggs earned the save, his 5th. Geoff Zahn(1-7) suffered the loss. Nala was reflective after the loss, 'We should have won this one, we just made one too many mistakes. Son-of-a-gun, that added a couple more white hairs on this noggin of mine.'
