In a dramatic ending at Busch Stadium '78 the North Shore Rails won in their last at-bat beating the Livonia Loggers by the count of 3 to 2.

The game was decided in the bottom of the 9th inning. After an out was recorded, Jimmy Collins smashed a bases-empty 'big-fly' (his 4th of the season) resulting in an exciting win for North Shore and a raucous post-game celebration by the home town fans. North Shore finished with 8 hits in the victory.

The win was credited to Frank Linzy(2-1) who went 1/3 of an inning allowing no runs. Hoyt Wilhelm(10-12) absorbed the loss in relief. He gave up 2 runs and 2 hits in 3 and 1/3 innings.
