Tough day for the Three-I League Champions in Green Bay. Dick McLaughlin hit a grand slam in the second inning for the Dodgers in their game one win.
In game two, the Foxes were up 8-1 after they scored seven runs in the fourth inning. Boog Powell hit a three-run homer in that inning, but the Dodgers came all the way back...and then some.
The Foxes are 80-54 after being swept in this doubleheader.
25 Years Ago Today:
GAME ONE MWL FIRST ROUND
APPLETON FOXES 000 000 141 -..6 12 4
KENOSHA TWINS..203 032 40x - 14 16 1
The headline from the Post-Crescent on 9/4/85 says it best after Appleton lost game one of a best-of-three series: Foxes' backs pinned to wall
Edwin Correa, who won 13 games during the regular season for Appleton, took the loss. He allowed eight runs on seven hits and five walks in 4-2/3 innings.
The offense was handcuffed by 15-game winner Alan Sontag. Well, not completely handcuffed, the Foxes had 10 hits off Sontag in 7-1/3 innings, but they did not have a big breakthrough until the eighth inning when they were already down 14-1.
The article does point out a positive factoid: The Foxes were 7-2 in nine games at Goodland Field against the Twins.
