In an great finish the Ragnar Lothbrok came back in the top of the ninth and held on to win over the Green Mountain Grafters by a score of 8 to 7 at Tiger Stadium '78.

Ragnar came through with the game-winning runs in the 9th inning with 3 runs utilizing 2 base hits. Tris Speaker got things going when he tripled. Mark McGwire came to the plate and drew a walk. Sammy Sosa then drew a walk to load the bases. Willie Mays was up next and he doubled plating three runs. A wild affair, this game saw the lead change 5 times.

The victory was credited to Goose Gossage(5-1) who went 3 and 1/3 innings, allowing 1 run. Jim Brewer got the save, his 9th. Mariano Rivera(3-8) took the loss in relief. Despite losing, he struckout 5 Ragnar batters in 2 innings.

Rivera was feeling apologetic in the locker room, 'I sure let that one get away. What a miserable feeling to let the guys down; and our fans. One minute things are looking great, then. BOOM, it's over with! I just hope I get a chance to redeem myself real soon!'
