50 Years Ago Today:

GAME ONE (7 innings)


GAME TWO (9 innings)

In game one, the Foxes did not start well and did not end well.  Arne Thorsland gave up two hits and two walks in the first inning and did not record an out as he gave up three runs.

Fox Cities tied the game 5-5 with a pair of runs in the top of the seventh. But, the Demons scored a run in the bottom of the seventh for the 'walk off'.

In game two, Pat Gillick pitched. At this part of the season, that mean a pretty automatic win for the Foxes.  Gillick did the job with a nine inning complete game with five walks and seven strikeouts for his tenth win of the season.

With the split, Fox Cities is 52-36.  They are still in first place in the Three-I League, but their lead over Sioux City is down to three games.

25 Years Ago Today:
..............................R..H E

MADISON MUSKIES 100 000 100 - 2
..3 2
APPLETON FOXES..010 300 23x - 9 12 0


Well, the lead paragraph mentions that there were 4,163 in attendance for "Budweiser Night".  But, the boxscore mentions that there were 3,463 on hand.  Perhaps the counters had a few Budweisers that night?

Anyway, the game was another Edwin Correa production.  He tossed seven innings and struck out 10 for his ninth win of the season.  It didn't start out looking that way.  Correa walked four in the first inning to force in a Muskie run.  Then, he settled down to retire 10 straight.

The Foxes bats tied the game in the second on a Wes Kent sac fly.  Kent hit a homer off the scoreboard in left-center in the fourth for a 3-1 lead.  Mike Taylor homered one out later and the Foxes were up 4-1.

Tom Forrester homered - #12 for him - in the seventh inning and Appleton pulled away from the Muskies.

The Appleton put their record for the season at 63-36.  They still lead the Northern Division of the Midwest League.  Madison is in third place 15 games out.  Kenosha is in second...either 13 or 14 out...There was no standings page saved from the paper on this day.
