Big Day for Meador in 7-2 Northmen Win
In the 7-2 Twin Cities win over Detroit, the impact of Mark Meador was substantial. Meador went 3 for 5 with a home run and a double, while scoring 2 and driving in 4. Joe Gibson, the winning pitcher, improved to 2-1. He pitched 9 innings, giving up 9 hits and 2 runs, while striking out 1 and walking 4. So far, the 1961 season has been disappointing for Detroit, now 10-16.

With Twin Cities leading 4-2 in the top of the ninth, Meador hit a fastball from Merle Fearnley for a 3-run home run. It was his 4th home run of the season and put the Northmen ahead, 7-2.

"We played a good game and came out on top," said Meador.
