Beavers Deal Bobcats 7-3 Loss
The Buffalo Beavers downed the Cleveland Bobcats, 7-3. The hitting star was third baseman Alan Weston. Weston went 1-3 with a home run and 2 walks, while scoring 2 times and driving in 2 for the Beavers. The last-place Bobcats have lost 5 consecutive games.

It could have been a different outcome for Buffalo, had it not been for George Rowland, the top prospect . Rowland contributed a run-scoring single in the top of the first inning to put Buffalo up, 1-0.

"We take it day by day here," said Weston, "and today was a good one for us."
