Mike Scott racked up an impressive total of 14 strikeouts and left fielder Willie Stargell ripped 2 homeruns and had 4 RBI at Wrigley Field '78 as the California 420 Paranoid Bears won in dramatic fashion coming back to beat the ny sluggers by the count of 7 to 5.

California 420 had the winning rally in the 9th inning with 3 runs on 3 hits. Johnny Bench led off and he doubled. Cesar Cedeno stepped up to the plate and he singled. Stargell then lost the ball over the fence for three runs (his 27th of the season) making California 420 victorious to the delight of the the home town crowd. Due to a poorly pitched ballgame, scoring in 5 different innings was still not enough for ny to come away with the victory.

The victory was credited to Mark Fidrych(1-0) who went 2/3 of an inning, allowing no runs. Dale Murray(1-2) was the losing pitcher in relief. He allowed California 420 3 runs in 2 innings of work.

'It's almost like the ball was trying to hit my bat,' Stargell said. 'Whenever I would swing, the ball found the sweet spot.'
