No one was more impactful than Al Cobley in the 5-4 Chicago win over Houston. Cobley, who led the ABL in stolen bases with 45 in 1946, was 3 for 5 with a home run and 2 singles, while scoring 2 runs and driving in 2. Chicago pitcher Al Charrette got the win, upping his record to 10-4. Jerry Lamont got the loss. Rick Siesel, credited with the save, is now 12 for 15 in save opportunities.

Who knows how it might've ended, had it not been for Jim Shepherd? The Chicago catcher had a 2-run single in the top of the third inning to put the Hawks on top, 4-1. For the game, Shepherd had 1 double and 1 single in 4 at-bats.

"I'm just happy to help the team win," Shepherd told the Chicago News.

The last-place Drillers have dropped 7 straight games.
