Cesar Geronimo had 5 hits at Shea Stadium '78 where the Martian Visitors beat the woeful COLO SPGS Bizzaz 4 to 2.

COLO SPGS fell behind quickly as the Martian offense came through in the first inning when they tallied 2 runs on 3 hits. The key at-bat was by Roberto Clemente, who disappointed the partisan crowd when he slapped a one-base hit which was good for two runs. Martian had 14 hits for the afternoon while COLO SPGS had 6.

Jim Palmer(9-14) picked up the victory, allowing 2 runs in 7 innings. Dave Smith earned his 17th save. Tex Hughson(4-17) absorbed the loss. He got hit hard, allowing 10 hits and 2 walks in 5 innings.

'I had a little blister on my index finger before the game, but I thought it was nothing.' Palmer said. 'I was lucky I got a win because I couldn't put the ball where I wanted it.'
