SIOUX CITY SOOS..1
Norm Bass pitched a one-hitter for the Soos. He walked five and struck out 13. The only hit he gave up was a bunt single by Pete Ward in the seventh.
Buster Narum was almost as good. He allowed four hits and three walks with eight strikeouts over 8-2/3 innings. But, Narum threw a wild pitch with two out in the bottom of the ninth inning to let the winning run score for Sioux City.
The Foxes are 71-44. They are in first place in the Three-I League, but the lead over Sioux City dropped down to 8-1/2 games.

Jackie Davidson walked six Foxes in the first two innings. He did not retire anyone in the second inning as the first eight Appleton batters of the inning reached safely.
Jim Markert had three RBI and Tom Forrester had two RBI for the Foxes to let Edwin Correa cruised to his twelfth win of the season.
The Foxes win made them 79-43 on the season. They are still comfortably in front of second place Kenosha in the Northern Division of the Midwest League.
