Ed Walsh whiffed 11 batters at Anaheim Stadium '78 where the blistering-hot Square Root of 3 beat the Rocky Mtn Oysters 6 to 5.

Walsh(5-1) pitched a solid game. He went 9 innings surrendering 8 hits and 3 walks and served up 2 'big flies'. Rocky Mtn had a chance to come back in the 9th but they came up short.

Rob Murphy(0-2) was hit with the loss in relief. Kumar was asked about the performance of Walsh, 'He had his good stuff out there this afternoon. The fans really get into it when the strikeouts start mounting up - and that seems to give him even more adrenalin.'
