Packers Prevail, 8-7, Over St. Louis
Behind a solid performance from right fielder Bert Carter, the Cincinnati Packers defeated the St. Louis Explorers, 8-7. Carter went 3-5 with a home run, 2 singles, and a walk, while scoring 2 times and driving in 2 for the Packers. Fred Ahrens picked up the win, improving his season record to 4-4. He struck out 2 in 8 innings. Davey Rose was credited with the save. He has now successfully converted 6 of 8 save opportunities.

Cincinnati used the timely hitting of Kerry Blythe to capture the win. The shortstop stroked a 2-run double in the top of the first inning to put the Packers on top, 4-0. It was his only hit in 4 at-bats, but he made it count.

"We'll grab a cold one tonight and go after another win tomorrow," Blythe said.

St. Louis's current losing streak has reached 4 games.
