Shortstop Rico Petrocelli launched 2 homeruns and had 3 RBI at The Kingdome '78 where the Storm Riders beat the Streetwalking Cheetahs by the score of 6 to 5.

Petrocelli enjoyed a big day at the plate. He smashed a bases-empty 'big-fly' in the 4th inning and blasted a two-run home run (his 22nd of the season) in the 8th inning. Streetwalking threatened in the 9th but Storm was able to put down the rally.

Michael Jackson(7-2) allowed no runs in 1/3 of an inning, and picked up the victory. Jesse Orosco earned the save, his 10th. Johnny Klippstein(2-11) absorbed the loss in relief. He pitched 2/3 of an inning allowing 1 hit and 1 walk.

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