Raucous Lakefront Stadium Crowd Propels Bobcats to 6-3 Victory; Series Tied at 1
Marv Traber pitched well, but the Cincinnati Packers lost anyway, falling 6-3 in extra innings to the Cleveland Bobcats at Lakefront Stadium. With the win, Cleveland tied the best-of-7 League Championship Series at 1 games apiece. Traber was effective, giving the Packers 8 innings and allowing 2 runs.

Cleveland won the game in the bottom of the 11th inning. With two outs and David Acosta on the mound for Cincinnati, second baseman Harold Batkin hit a dramatic 3-run home run, bringing Bobcats fans to their feet.

Batkin told a Cleveland Observer reporter that he was "gratified" with the win.

Game 3 is scheduled for Friday at Roman Arena in Cincinnati.
