McBryde In Triple
Tie For First
MAKEES NOSE OUT MAKAWELIS
With their memories still fresh with
the defeat administered to them nt
their last mooting, tho Makeo tribe
revenged themselves by taking a close
and interesting gamo from B. L.
Damkroger's pots at Kapaa on Sunday
by tho score of 4 3.
Lihuo rooters were there in large
numbers, all pulling for tho Makawells
to repeat, but tho Makees, realizing
that a tie for first place honors de
pended upon this game, were not to
bo denied. Although Makaweli's jinx
on tho home team seemed to be still
alive when Morita in right field lot in
two runs by dropping an easy fly, the
homo team managed to overcome this
temporary setback by timely hitting,
and taking advantage of errors.
"Sunburn" Cummings was again on
the mound for tho Makees, and he
acquitted himself very nicely. Only
four singles were secured off his de
livery, and he was rather stingy when
hits meant runs. lie walked one to
Furtado's three, and made six batters
fan the ozone to five for his opponent.
Furtado allowed nino hits, Jive of
which were for extra bases. The
heavy hitters of tho day were Tsunc
hiro with a triple and a double, Cum
mlngs with two doubles, and Iloopil
with a triple.
Makaweli started tho scoring right
in tho first sjanza. With one down
Burgess singled, advanced on an error
and infield grounder, and scored on a
passed ball. The other two runs
came in the sixth. Watase was hit by
tho pitcher and Burgess died on a fly
to left field. Watase stole second
and advanced to third when Soong
inado a bad peg to second. Hamada
was hit by pitcher and immediately
stole second. Aneo fanned, but Mori
ta In right field dropped Kamaka's
fly, and two runs came In; Akira
fanned, and the score then stood at
32 in favor of tho visitors. Makaweli
had no further chance to scoro after
this Inning, as not a single player
managed to get to first during the last
With the score at ono to nothing
against them, the Makees camo right
back in tho last half of the first frame
and went the Makawells ono better
by timely hitting aided by a gift of
a free ticket from Furtado. King,
lead-off man, was passed and K. Hoc
sacrificed him to second. Bun Hee
singled and King moved over to third.
Hoopii cracked ono on the noso for a
three-bagger and two runners scored.
After Makaweli had taken tho lead in
tho sixth, tho homo team again came
back at them in their half and knotted
up tho count. Tsunehiro started tho
inning by doubling to left and went
to third on Furtado's bad peg to catch
him napping off second. Soong ground
ed to pitcher, and Tsunehiro diedjat
the plate. Morita made up for his bad
error in the first half of this inning
by singling through the box, but Cum
mings fanned the air thrice. With
ono run needed to tie, a signal for the
hit and run play was given, 'and Soong
started off with the windup. Arcia
knocked a clean single over second
and Soong camo In with tho run that
tied tho score. Tho winning run came
in the ninth when Tsunehiro opened
up with a mighty three-bagger to
right field which went clear over the
railroad track, and scored when Ha
mada on first was unable to hold
Morlta's grounder with one down.

McBryde 6, Kllnuea 1
The McBryde-Kilauoa game was
another neck and neck race up to tho
soventh with tho scoro standing ono
all at the beginning of the eighth.
In McBryde's halt of the oigth they
got tho bases full and no outs. Tho
hoxt batter up hit's a grounder to J.
Pacheco at second, who fielded tho
ball nicely and had plenty of time to
shut out tho runner nt tho plato and
kill the man at first. But Pacheco
got rattled and just held tho ball whlio
the batter got to first and tho man on
Tho next man up got a hit over sec
ond which brought in another runner.
Then Capt. Henderson slammed ono
over third, bringing iu-number three,
Spalding sacrifices and number four
comes across. The next man goes
out on a fly to center and number five

BASEBALL NOTES , ,
Next Sunday, August 22nd. sees the
opening of the third and last round of
the 1920 series. In this round, ending
September 19th, the schedulo will be
the same as the first round. Question:
Will tho results bo the same?
On July 11th (the end of tho first
round) McBryde was leading with Li
hue, Makee and Makaweli in a triple
tie for second place.
By tho way, how about a cup for the
winners of tho 1920 series?
Kenji, Kilauoa's best bet on tho
mound, departed Saturday for Japan.
Sometimo ago it was Lihue, Makee
and McBryde, and now its the same
again. Doping tho winner for 1920 on
Kauai would puzzle even the fertile
baseball brain of Hugh Fullorton.
Tho triple tie will bo broken next
Sunday with ono or two of tho teams
dropping to third place. Tho Makees
meet the Kilauons, who they have al
ready beaten twice, and the game
looks liko a Makeo victory, but tho
Lihue-McBrydo game will bo a game
