THE MAYSVILLES WON.
Defeated the Huntingtons Yesterday
by a Score of 6 to 3 Hilloary
Pitched a Fine Game.
The Mays villes and Huntingtons played
a fine game of ball yesterday afternoon
on the letter's grounds, and the best thing
about it is that Captain McGann and his
. Tho scor stood: Maysville 6, Hunting
That figure three has figured quite
prominently in tho late games between
these clubs. The first game last week
stood 9-3 in fovor of Maysvillo, the noxt
was 6-3 in favor of Huntington, and in
yesterday's game the score was just re
versed 6-3 in favor of Maysville.
This gives Maysvillo four of the seven
games played so far with the West Vir
ginians. They meet again this afternoon.
Captain McGann caught yesterday's
Bruner pitched for Gallipolis against
the Huntingtons this week and downed
tho West Virginians, 8 to 5.
The Gyms, leaders in the O. K. race at
Cincinnati, have offered tho Maysvilles
strong inducements for a game at Cin
cincinnatt some Sunday in tho early fu
ture, and tho Maysvilles will probably
conclude to play them.
Tom Parrott, who was in the box for
the Reds in their last garao here, was
asked a few days ago if he really tried
himself against the amateurs. "I nearly
thr6w my arm off trying to down those
Maysvilles," was Parrott's reply. When
told that the Reds would probably play
the Maysvilles again soon, Tom remarked,
"Well, I don't want to do the pitching."
Billy Rhines, another one of the Reds'
twiilers who was seated near, began guy
ing Parrott, and said, "Never mind, Tom ;
I'll go against 'em next time, atul will
put 'em over for those Kentuckians."
"Yes, and if you do that, the Maysvilles
will knock 'em out of the lot," was Pur
rott's parting shot.

idea for the Cincinnati club to eecun
Pitcher Reiman, of tho Maysville team V
It is all right to claim he owes his effect
iveness to getting tho best of the umpir
ing, but with those who have seen h.m
work this story doesn't altogether go.
Suppose he does get a shade the best
of the umpiring in Maysville, this ad
vantage does not nearly make up for the
big handicap he has to overcome in the
way of minor league support. Reiman
has pitched four games against league
clubs this season and won three of them,
losing the other by only ono run. He
has shown himself far more worthy of
a trial than half of the pitchers that are
brought into fast company. It is quite
a feat for a pitcher with minor league
support to beat a National League team."
