THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1911
The Tw Games Last Sundav Were
Full of Excitement. '
The teama in tlio Maui league are
gradually hitting tlieir heat form,
and from now on some exciting
games can he looked for. The field
ing last Sunday was sensational nt
times, while at other times some
easy chances were turned into errors.
There is an old saying that luck
. always goes with a winner, and base
ball is no exception to this rule.
Both the Wailukus and the Stars,
winners in the games last Sunday
certainly got the best of the breaks
in almost every instance, though we
do not think this had any material
influence on the result, other than
to give the players confidence.
In the first game the Kahuluis
played a waiting game at bat, fig
uring on Meyer, the Wailuku pitch
er passing them to first. Meyer
crossed them however, as he just
gave them enough bad ones to jolly
them, and then put a few over the
plate, and had the Kahului batters
swinging their headsoff trying to con
nect. His speed was terrific, and
when his delivery was connected
with it was rarely the ball was knock -edoutof
the diamond. The Kahuluis
did not earn a run as both their runs
were made on errors. On the other
hand the Wailukus hatted harder than
the score indicates. The final score
was 5 to 2.
In the second game the Paia team
played as though they were beaten
before they started, and several o
the team put up a very listless game.
They did not show the fighting
spirit that wins games. The battery
work of the Paia team was all that
could be desired, and they deserved
better support from their fielders
The Stars were very confident, and
showed their confidence in the fast
decisive manner in which they went
through the game.
Next Sunday there will be no
league games, as the Portuguese
Athletic Club will be up from Hono
lulu to play a series with an all
Maui team. The Portuguese team
is fast, and if a strong team . is se
lected to go against them, we should
see some good exhibitions. The
first game will be played at Kahu
lui today, at 3 o'clock- Sunday the
teams will play at 2:30 p. m., and
again Monday in Wailuku at 3 p. m.
The lineup for the All Maui team
Saturday will be Joe Clement,
catcher; Henry Silva,' pitcher; W.
Bal, first base; J. Garcia, second
base; Charlie Bento, third base;
Harry Moto, shortstop; J. Oliveira,
K. Smythe, Kahaawinui, Kama,
The team for the game on Sunday
is undecided as yet. Monday the
Morning Star team will play.

day the bad luck to suffer a slight ac
