50 Years Ago Today:
GAME ONE (7 INNINGS)
FOX CITIES FOXES..5
GAME TWO (9 INNINGS)
In game one, Foxes manager Earl Weaver was ejected from the game. I can see why after the Reds scored seven in the third and five in the sixth.
In game two, Arne Thorsland won his 13th game of the season. The story noted that the victory broke the franchise record for wins that had been set in 1959. Frank Bruckbauer won 12 for the Foxes in 1959.
The Foxes Player of the Day was Photi Anthony. He homered twice in game two and scored four runs in game one.
The Foxes magic number to clinch the Three-I League Championship is at two. They are 79-50 on the season after the action on August 30, 1960.

In game one, Jim Winters tripled in two runs in the top of the ninth inning for the extra innings victory. Dave White tossed a 1-2-3 ninth inning for the save, his 18th of the season. The winning pitcher? Oh, some guy by the name of Bobby Thigpen, who worked 2-2/3 scoreless innings in relief. The story notes that Thigpen had been called up from Sarasota earlier in the day.
Kenosha kept their wild card hopes alive with a win in the second game.
The Foxes are 84-52 on the season after the action on August 30, 1985.
