May 4, 1960 & May 4, 1985

50 Years Ago Today:

The Fox Cities Foxes were trying for their third win in a row when they were hosting the Cedar Rapids Braves.

They led 2-0. Then...I'll let John L. Paustian handle this from the May 5 edition of the PC.
The lights on the two towers along the third base side blew out after 2-1/2 innings interrupting an intriguing pitching duel between two fine young lefties - the Foxes' Pat Gillick and Cedar Rapids' Dennis Overby.
If you are keeping track: The Foxes were rained out two out of three days in Cedar Rapids. Thy had played the previous day at Goodland Field, so this makes one of two days on the schedule against the Braves that a game got postponed. They will try again on May 5, 1960.

25 Years Ago Today:

KENOSHA (10-13).011 000 001 - 3..9..3
APPLETON(14-8)..010 200 04x - 7..8..1

WP: Chris Jefts (2-1)

ATTN: 373

Norberto Martin drove in the final two runs of that four run eighth inning. These insurance runs were more than enough.

Jefts allowed two runs on seven hits and struck out six over 7-1/3 innings. Dave White closed down the game for the Foxes for his second save.
