Al Rosen smashed 2 homeruns and had 3 RBI at Fulton Cnty Stdm '78 as the Foghorn club beat the Memphis Sixers by the count of 11 to 8.

Rosen led the offense for Foghorn. He lofted a solo-blast 'downtown' in the 1st inning, hit a bases-empty home run (his 15th of the season) in the 3rd inning, lined a base-hit bringing in a run in the 7th inning and delivered a single in the 9th inning. Memphis made it exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to push the needed runs across.

The win went to Jack Chesbro(8-2) who allowed 6 runs in 8 innings. Jim Shaw recorded his 6th save. Roger Nelson(1-2) was hit with the loss. He served up 4 gopher balls in 6 innings.

Mark McClellan was subdued after the ballgame, 'That one really hurts. If our guys had simply played more fundamentally sound, we could have won that one. That is what really ticks me off!'
