It was Edwin Correa's night. He tossed a complete game two-hit shutout with 10 strikeouts. The only two hits allowed were a leadoff bunt single by Allen Sigler in the bottom of the first and a two out single by Joe Dunlap in the bottom of the ninth.
Correa moved his record to 13-2.
The only offense Correa needed came in the third inning. Mike Taylor doubled in a run with two outs. Then, Pete Venturini doubled in Taylor. A wild pitch and an error let Venturini come home and the Foxes were up 3-0.
Appleton is 81-47. They lead the Northern Division of the Midwest League. Second place Kenosha is 10.5 games back.
