Foresters Lose, 7-3, at Cougars Park
Orlin Yates was a major factor in the 7-3 Chicago win over Cleveland. The Cougars center fielder went 2-4 with a double, while scoring 2 times and driving in 4. With the win, Chicago raised its record to 85-68.

Yates contributed a big hit, a bases-clearing double, for Chicago in the bottom of the second. With his team trailing 1-0, Yates took a forkball from Jimmy Collins and stroked the double to right. His 17th double of the season allowed the Cougars to leap in front, 3-1.

In comments to the Chicago Bulletin, Yates admitted he's been told to improve his work habits. "But," he said, "I know when to take it to another gear."
