Wolverines Top Twin Cities, 7-6
The Detroit Wolverines beat the Twin Cities Northmen, 7-6, at Wolverine Field. Detroit center fielder Rodney Holt had an outstanding performance. He was 2-3 with a home run, a double, and 2 walks, while scoring 3 and driving in 3. Detroit is still hoping to get on a roll. The win is just their 10th in 25 games.

Buck DeFalco was the walk-off hero for Detroit. With the game tied in the bottom of the ninth inning, the Wolverines second baseman hit a dramatic run-scoring single to send the teams home.

"The house was rockin'," said Holt.
