33,880 fans watched an exciting game at The Kingdome '78. The Storm Riders topped the slumping Memphis Magicians by the slimmest of margins, 5 to 4.

Storm erupted with the game winning runs in the 8th inning scoring 3 runs on 3 hits. Babe Ruth led off and keyed the rally when he drew a walk. Frank Howard followed and he lifted one out of the park for a two run home run (his 37th of the season). After an out was recorded, Rico Petrocelli came to the plate and blasted a solo shot (his 34th of the season). Memphis threatened in the 9th but Storm was able to put down the rally.

The win was credited to Dave Smith(10-11) who went 2 innings allowing 1 run. Bob McClure(6-4) was hit with the loss in relief.

'We didn't get the key hits when we needed them' Mark McClellan said. 'We did what we could, we just didn't pull out the win. What can you say?'
