It was warm enough yesterday to
melt all the cycles in the Arctic re
gions, hut it was not too warm for
Kock Island to win. and although
each club made 12 hits and rolled up
three errors. Rock Island's hits were
more timely and the errors less cost
ly than those of Des Moines. The
first tuning started blue for the bar
bers, for they went out in one, two.
three order; but not so with the
clear, cold water advocates. For
them Mattie Tickers started off with
a 3-basc hit. and Hickety Hoffman
followed with a single. A young
Britisher named Holmes came next,
but he flew out to Danny Sweeney.
Seisler, Des Moines' Utile German
catcher, hit one to Paddy Lynch and
was thrown out at first. Hoffman
tried to go to third on the play, but
he was nailed. In the second" Kock
Island went out in one. two. three
order again, ditto Des Moines. In
the third tbe band around Dannv
Sweeney's hat played a different tune".
McMackin tied a base up and handed
it over to Doc Sage. Lynch fouled
out to Seisler and Silent "struck out.
Danny picked up that piece of hard
maple that he and Joe Katz are al
ways chewing aliout. and walked up
with a determined look on his
face. He didn't want a base on balls;
what he wanted was a home run.
Well, he didn't get it. but he did hit
to Porter, and that Italian made an
error and the little fellow was safe.
He danced a clog or two around
there, while Joe Cantillon stood up
with a log in his mitts. Swish! came
a ball and Joe struck at it and spun
around like a top. But the next one
that came up, there was a crush like
a down-pour of rain on a red-hot
stove, and the ball sailed away out ia
left to make a call upon the "carpen
ters engaged in building the dressing
rooms for "Americus." Little bow
lecged Hickety chased after it, but
before he got it Doc and Danny were
home. Joe tried to go to third, but
he was put out. In the fourth Kock
Island scored four more. Zeis fouled
out to Seisler, Katz made a hit, Kreig
got a base on balls, but Hill f.ew out
to Lawrence. Sage got against the ball
for two bases, and Katz came home.
Paddy Lynch was the next man up
and he knocked a little pop-up foul
whicli Seisler went after, but it was
on top of the grand stand, so he
didn't get it. Paddy had thrown
down his stick and said something
funny about well, we don't care
what, but when he found thnt Seisler
couldn't get it he danced such a pret
ty ballet that the fair ones of Amer
icus," who were in the grand stand,
gave indisputable evidence of envy.
The next moment the clouds seemed
to undergo a mesmeric influence; in
the air were myriads of oh! such fun
ny creatures, and through all could
be seen a little round speck sailing,
sailing out on thethickly laden atmos
phere, and neither did it stop until it
dropped over the right field fence.and
a home run at that. Silent ended the
inning by hitting to first and going
out. Des Moines rolled up two in
its half. In the fifth Kock Island
rolled up one. In the sixth Sage had
started the ball rolling with a slash
ing 2-base hit; Lynch came up and
nn one at Aicaiackin which injured
him so that he had to step playing.
Mattie" Vickers was taken out of
the center garden and put in to
pitch, and Griffin sent out in the
field. Sonier made a hit off Mat
tie," Sweeney got a base on balls.
Cantillon flew out to McFadden. Zeis
got a base on balls and on Katz's hit
Sonier and Sweeney came home.
Kreig hit to short anil forced Joe at
second. Des Moines fattened two in
the seventh, and Rock Island two in
tbe eighth, making their total 12.
Des Moines made one in the eighth
and two in the ninth.
