It was a great finish at The Astrodome '78 as the Nyc Nyc pulled off a dramatic comeback beating the floundering Memphis Magicians in 11 innings by the count of 4 to 3.

The score was knotted at 2 after nine innings. Nyc came out the victor in the 11th inning. Jim O'Rourke started the inning off right when he tripled. Jack Smith came next and he stroked a one-base hit scoring a run. Maury Wills then laid down a sacrifice bunt. Smith proceeded to steal third base. Glenn Myatt came to the plate and delivered a base-hit resulting in an exciting win for Nyc and a wild post-game celebration by the home town fans. Overall Nyc out-hit Memphis 11 to 8.

Steve Howe(2-6) got the win allowing 1 run in 1 inning. Bob McClure(7-6) was tagged with the loss in relief. He allowed 4 hits and no walks in 1 and 1/3 innings.
