Babe Ruth cracked 2 homeruns and had 4 RBI at The Kingdome '78 where the Storm Riders beat the Hidden Variables by the score of 7 to 5.

Ruth made sure the Storm fans enjoyed themselves. He blasted a two-run home run in the 1st inning and cracked a two-run shot (his 22nd of the season) in the 7th inning. Storm took care of Hidden with no trouble in the 9th.

Alex Kellner(4-4) went 5 and 1/3 innings allowing 4 runs for the win. Kellner was helped out by Dave Smith who recorded his 8th save. John Candelaria(0-5) was the loser. His ERA ballooned from 4.81 to 5.30 as he allowed 5 runs in 4 innings.

'I had a little blister on my index finger before the game, but I thought it was nothing.' Kellner said. 'I was lucky I got a win because I couldn't put the ball where I wanted it.'
