Mickey Mantle ripped a bases loaded blast at Anaheim Stadium '78 as the Out West Wranglers won in dramatic fashion coming back to beat the NY HORNETS by the count of 9 to 5.

Out West won the game with a rally in the bottom of the 9th inning scoring 6 runners on 3 hits. The big moment was provided by Mantle, who thrilled the crowd when he emptied the bases with a Grand Slam homerun (his 32nd of the season). NY had 9 hits in the game while Out West had 6, but Out West had the more timely hits.

Gene Garber(3-6) got the win allowing no runs in 1 and 1/3 innings. Ad Liska(8-4) ended up with the loss in relief. Garber and Mantle were really whooping it up in the clubhouse after the great come from behind victory. As Floyd noted, 'A win like this one can do wonders for a team's attitude.' Everyone shares in the joy - the fans, the players - even you guys - it's better than winning by a dozen runs!'
