First baseman Lou Gehrig launched 2 homeruns and had 4 RBI at Anaheim Stadium '78 where the Out West Wranglers beat the Cleveland Spiders 6 to 4.

Gehrig enjoyed a fine day at the plate. He clubbed a three-run home run in the 1st inning and cracked a solo homerun (his 5th of the season) in the 6th inning. Cleveland had a chance to come back in the 9th but they came up short.

Rube Waddell(2-1) got credit for the victory, pitching 8 and 2/3 innings and allowing 4 runs. Dennis Eckersley earned his 4th save. Dick Ellsworth(1-2) was charged with the loss. He allowed 3 homeruns in 8 innings of work.

Stu was in a sour mood after the game. 'Even you guys up in the press box know why we lost this game. We made too many mistakes.'
