Tom Seaver(10-16) and Pete Alexander(12-14) treated the Caldwell fans to a fine pitching duel at Royals Stadium '78. The Caldwell Crypt Kickers eventually emerged as victors over the Its Now Or Never by the score of 1 to 0.

The winning run, and the only run, was scored by Caldwell in the bottom of the 6th inning. Its Now Or made it exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to push the needed runs across.

Seaver was helped out by Bob McClure who recorded his 7th save. 'Some losses are harder to take than others' The King lamented after the game. 'This was one of them.'
