George Sisler smacked 3 homeruns and had 5 RBI at Tiger Stadium '78 where the Green Mountain Grafters beat the Beantown Philosophers by the score of 7 to 5.

Sisler provided much of the offense. He popped a two-run clout over the fence in the 1st inning, hit a bases-empty home run in the 4th inning and lifted one out of the park for a two run home run (his 15th of the season) in the 7th inning. Beantown had a chance in the 9th but they came up short.

The win was credited to Horacio Pina(3-0) who went 2/3 of an inning allowing no runs. Eric Gagne gained credit for his 9th save. Ed Walsh(6-8) was the loser. He was touched for 3 homeruns in his 8 innings of work.

'I've spent a lot of time in the cage and made some adjustments and they've paid off,' Sisler said. 'I just take the same approach up there. I don't overanalyze it. I go up there, see the ball and try to put a good swing on it.'
