It the first gaitiu of the championship
aerlee between the Springfield and Fratik
forta, played here yesterday, was a tedious ex
hibition to wllneas, which It waa, much more
ao would lie the reading of any extended re
port of It, ao none will lm given. In justice
to the visitors It must be stated that, on
their manager'a authority, their regular
pitcher was laid off under a physician's care
and a new man had to be put in to pitch his
first game. For this or tome other reason
the whole team played a spiritless game, lit!
erally piling up etrora and making the affair
almost a hippodrome. In fact, the battery
did about nil that waa done cred
itably, and with good support
the score would have been quite
different. The catcher, lleltman, played great
ball from first to last, having but one passed
ball, although the pitching waa wild at timea.
He earned Hie applause he got. There waa a
kick on Qalvln's delivery, but Mr. Wilcox did
not call him down. Up to tho alxth Inning
the Sprlngfielda played an almost errorless
game and Frankfort should have been shut
out, but In the sixth they went to pieces and
let in four runs. Except in that Inning
the outfield had a snap, lew balls getting b
yond the diamond. In the eighth, with Shoupe
on third, Huey at second and llaker at first,
nobody out and Fisher at the bat, Shoupe at
tempted to steal home, thinking he saw a
chance, but waa caught several fett Irom the
plate. Baker and Huey ran also and were kept
bobbing back and forth with the ball, neither
reaching bis base, until Huey was run down
between second and third. Fisher then pop
ped up an easy fly, and a blind Inning re
sulted. It wasn't brilliant work at all.
Cody's catching waa a feature of the game,
ouie. of his stops and jumping catches lieing
marvelous. In the eighth Inning linker
knocked the ball to left lor what should have
been a two-bagger, but the bases could not
be cleared for him to go to second. Galvln
pitched hia usual good game, more than one
of the fills credited Franklort being scratches,
and the only long hit being Shcnkcl's three
baser In the sixth. The crowd was light.
There must be better support if the present
excellent team is to be kept together through
the season. Wilcox's umpiring was lair to
middling. Following is the scote:
