Ewell Blackwell pitched a complete game as the Storm Riders defeated the Nyc Nyc by a score of 10 to 3 at The Kingdome '78.

Babe Ruth enjoyed a big day at the plate. He hit a single in the 1st inning, doubled scoring two baserunners in the 5th inning and belted a three-run homer (his 64th of the season) in the 6th inning. Storm managed 11 hits in their victory.

The victory was credited to Blackwell(20-8) who went the distance, allowing 3 runs. Pete Alexander(18-15) suffered the loss. He served up 3 gopher balls in 5 and 2/3 innings.

'It's almost like the ball was trying to hit my bat,' Ruth said. 'Whenever I would swing, the ball found the sweet spot.'
