50 Years Ago Today


The Foxes were up 5-0 heading into the bottom of the seventh inning.  BUT, Cedar Rapids scored eight runs after the stretch.

Jim Lehew had a bad day in the bottom of the seventh.  He entered the game with two runners on base and the Foxes up 5-2.  Lehew gave up a three-run homer to Charlie Smith that tied the game 5-5.  Tommie Aaron followed with another homer that put the Braves up 6-5.  Gene Johnson reached on an error and Herm Hubbard hit the third homer in four batters faced by Lehew.

Boog Powell had a good day. He went 3-for-3 with a homer, a pair of runs, and a pair of RBI.

The loss dropped the Foxes to 53-38 on the season.  They still lead the Three-I League, BUT their lead over second place Sioux City is down to 1-1/2 games.
