Babe Ruth slammed 3 homeruns and had 6 RBI at The Kingdome '78 as the Storm Riders beat the Alberton Almighty 8 to 5.

Ruth was spectacular at the plate. The hometown fans showed their appreciation with a standing ovation his last time at bat. He cracked a solo homerun in the 4th inning, blasted a two-run home run in the 6th inning and smacked a three-run homer (his 45th of the season) in the 7th inning. Jesse Orosco relieved and was untouched by Alberton as he recorded the save, his 14th.

Dave Smith(7-9) went 2/3 of an inning allowing no runs for the victory. Lee Smith(7-7) was the losing pitcher in relief. Storm scored big getting 5 runs off him in 2 innings.

This win by Storm continues their recent hot streak. In their last ten games, they have a record of 9-1. For the season, they are 58-46. With the loss, the Alberton ballclub's record is 53-51.
