The blistering-hot Storm Riders toppled the ice-cold Memphis Magicians by a 5 to 1 score at The Kingdome '78.

Storm came up with 3 runs in the 2nd inning when they had 4 base hits. That was all the runs Kevin Appier(3-9) needed. Storm had only 5 hits for the game.

Appier was helped out by Dave Smith who recorded his 14th save. Bret Saberhagen(5-5) suffered the loss. Storm continued on their recent roll, their winning streak now reaching 7 games and counting. 'It seems we can't lose these days', Captain Morgan volunteered after the game. Then after a moment to reflect he lamented, 'Oh great! Now I've gone and jinxed us!'
