50 Years Ago Today:

GAME ONE (7 innings)

GAME TWO (9 innings)

In game one, Reds pitcher Bob Campbell allowed one hit. It was a two-out bunt single by Pete Ward in the bottom of the fourth. Dean Chance pitched well, but took the loss.

In game two, Chuck Symeon set a Fox Cities record for strikeouts in a 9 inning game. He struck out 15 Reds hitters, but it almost didn't matter.

The second game was scoreless until Cal Ripken, Sr. ripped a three-run double to give the Foxes - and Symeon - enough for the win.

That three-run double by Ripken ended a 22 innings scoreless streak for the Foxes.

Fox Cities is 50-34and they remain in first place in the Three-I League.

25 Years Ago Today:
.............................R H E
APPLETON FOXES 201 101 000 - 5 8 2
KENOSHA TWINS..000 000 101 - 2 6 1

The first two paragraphs from the story in the Post-Crescent:
Right -handed pitcher John Stein made a successful Midwest League debut Tuesday night, as the Appleton Foxes defeated Kenosha, 5-2.

Stein, who was drafted out of the University of Nevada-Las Vegas last month, worked 6-1/3 innings in achieving the win. He allowed only one run on four hits while walking four and striking out seven. Dave White finished up.
Mike Taylor his a solo homer in the fourth inning to give the Foxes a 4-0 lead.

Stein was a 12th round pick of the White Sox in '85. He would return to Appleton for the 1986 season and go 11-16 in 30 starts.  In 1987, he pitched in Bakersfield as a member of the Dodgers organization, his final season of professional baseball.

The Foxes are now 61-36 and still in first place in the Northern Division of the Midwest League. They are 12.5 up on Kenosha and 13.5 up on Madison.
