Ed Walsh was able to finish what he started and was credited with a complete game as the Beantown Philosophers staged a dramatic comeback over the Lima Llama Kids by a score of 5 to 4 at Busch Stadium '78.

Beantown had the game winning rally in the 9th inning scoring 3 runs. After an out was recorded, Dick Allen began the Beantown spurt when he reached on an error. Phil Weintraub was next and he drew a walk. Frank Thomas then clubbed a three-run home run (his 26th of the season). Beantown won despite being out-hit by Lima 9 hits to 6.

Walsh(19-18) was the winner allowing 4 runs for the game. Mike Garman(0-1) took the loss in relief. Garman 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!'
