Willie McCovey smacked 2 homeruns and had 5 RBI at County Stadium '78 where the JB Shake N Bake beat the Bumbles Bounce 9 to 5.

McCovey enjoyed a great day at the plate. Every time he came up in the latter innings, the crowd was on their feet cheering. He doubled in the 1st inning, cracked a two-run shot in the 3rd inning and rifled a three-run blast (his 17th of the season) in the 7th inning. JB banged out 15 hits on the afternoon.

Roger Clemens(11-12) got credit for the victory, pitching 6 innings and allowing 3 runs. Ed Reulbach(16-9) absorbed the loss. He allowed 4 homeruns in 8 innings of work.

McCovey was in a good mood after the game, 'I'm just seeing and hitting the ball real well now. I made some adjustments last week and they are paying off. That's what this game is about. making adjustments as the season goes along.'
