Tony Menendez allowed an unearned run and struck out five to tied the best-of-three series with the Twins at one win a piece.
The first hit he allowed was on a two-out, pinch-hit RBI double by Tom Scaletta in the top of the eighth inning. Mike Ryan scored on the play. He had reached on an error to start the inning.
Had he tossed the no-no, it would have been the first no-hitter at Goodland Field since Larry Monroe no-hit Cedar Rapids in a 7-inning game on August 22, 1975.
The offense in this game for the Foxes was supplied early. Jim Winters doubled in two runs in the first and that was enough for Menendez.
It should be noted that in the other MWL Semifinal, the Beloit Brewers beat Peoria 9-2 to even that series at a win each. Frank Mattox went 4-for-5 with a double, homer, and four RBI to lead Beloit to the win.
Game Three - in each series - is September 5, 1985.
