For the second time this -season
Rock Island has niaile it throe
straig-ht from Terre Haute. Th
first time it was on the Hottentots
own grounds and the effect of the
heating1 administered gave the Hons
iers such a start down the percentage
column that they had desperate work
getting a toe-hold to climb back up
What the trio of beatings of which
yesterday s was the last will do to
them remains to be seen.
At the same time that Rock Island
was making it throe against the
Huts'' Hloomington was doing the
same thing to Davenport. As the re
suit of Saturday's game Rook Island
and Davenport tied at 4'.0 for the
fourth place, and yesterday the form
er took tiie place that the towans
had hold so long.
Yesterday's contest was one of the
snappiest that was ever soon here.
Roth sides went in to win, and owing
to the infrequeney of the runs the
outcome was in doubt till the last
man was out in the ninth. Winning
ball has stimulated interest in the
national game amazingly, and the
fans were all out yesterday. the
rooting was something tremendous,
but it was not all on one side, for a
number -of Davenport people, passing
up the game on their own side of the
river, came over here to see a good
contest and to root for Terre Haute
Scott as Tramp Card.
The visitors had saved up Scott as
their last card and on him they had
based their hopes of winning. Mil
ton went against him and put up a
beautiful game. Scott, who has usu
ally run up a big list of strike-outs
when playing against Rock Island,
fanned never a man, while Milton
caused nine men to sit down after
jabbing frantically at the atmos
phere. Two of the four men Scott
gave bases scored, while the only
Hoosior that saw first in a like man
ner accomplished the same trick.
O'Leary, who replaced Williants
Saturday, caught yesterday and play
ed a clean game.
When both sides go after a victory,
as they did yesterday, there are
bound to be features, lleoehcr was
the star for the visitors, getting
throe hits and fielding an unusual
number of chances without error.
Miller played gilt-edge ball for Rock
Island, making a pretty stop of
Kling's grounder in the fifth and get
ting the third put-out in the eighth
with a man on second, by gobbling up
Walker's fly back of second base in a
manner that brought the fans to
their feet. Donnelly's catch of Sch
Iafly's long fly in the ninth, which,
with 'two men on bases, would have
tied the seore if it had gotten away,
was also worthy of special mention.
Miller Start With Score.
It was Miller's turn to get a run
the first time at bat. He waited
while Scott was trying to locate the
plate, and went to second on a neat
sacrifice by Donnelly. Craham flew
to left field, but Wright hit to. Raird
at third, who fell in fielding the ball
and then threw high to first. .Rich
ardson stopped the ball, but could
not hold it, and the runner was safe.
Miller, when he saw Raird throw,
made for the plate and reached it
with but a moment to spare. Wil
kinson got a hit that took Wright to
third and on a double steal the lat
ter was"cut-iff at the pla$e.
The next run in the seventh was
earned. King perished on a fly to the
outfield and then Milton swatted the
ball for a clean hit to center. Miller
followed with a hit . to right field
that was good for two, but not for
three. He endeavored to stretch it
Out, however, on the belief that the
throw would be made to get Milton
at the plate. The run came in and
Miller was caught at the third sack.
Donnelly got a safety and stole sec
ond, but Graham died on a high one.
The third run arrived in the eighth.
Wright died on a fly and then Wil
kinson was accorded a base. He took
second when O'Leary bounded out to
Scott; with two men out MeXichols
knocked the sphere straight up above
Scot and the latter, declared he had
It. Wilkinson did not t $ake any
stock in the statement however, and
wncn tne pitcher misjudged the ball
ana aiu not have It, he crossed the
rubber with the last run. 'King drew
a bounder and was out.
Terre Haute'a Troubles.
r.i wm . ...
ierre nauie cnu not nave a great
deal of difficulty in getting men on
base, but getting them all the way
around was another matter. In all
but two. innings men saw first, and
four times men were on third and
failed to reach home. It wp.a in the
seventh, after Walters had died a
first, that Kling took a base on four
broad ones. Starnagle struck nut, but
Scott and l'eechor each hit and that
brqught a score with men on third.
and second. Schlafly struck out. In
the ninth it looked as though the
score was to be tied, when Starnagle
and Reeeher, who had each hit, were
respectively on second and first and
Schlafly got squarely against the ball
for a long fly to the left of center,
It seemed for a moment that Donnel
iy would never make it and every one
held his breath. Rut just as the ball
was dropping1 the manager turned
about in front of it and the next in
staii t the game was over.

Terre nante'a Farmed Oat Pitcher an Kasy
Saturday's game was pretty much
one-sided. Popp, the pitcher, farmed
from St. Louis by Terre Haute, prov
ing a very soft article. in addition
to being found with ease, he gave five
bases and hit a man. The team
played as the pitcher did, and rolled
up five errors. So the locals had no
difficulty in getting seven runs, while
the visitors gt one, by bunching a
single and a two-bagger in the sec
ond inning. Torronce pitched a good
game ami he had support that was al
most perfect. Score of Saturday s

King yesterday "VTas of the speetacu
lar order. Few such tCtvhes as that
made by Miller have been soon in the
league this season.
Williams, who has boon suffering
with a sprain during the past few
days, is now in condition to play and
he will take part in the double-heaJ-
ors with Cedar Rapids.
Miller seems to have found a favor
ite spot in deep right, having knoek-
ed skyscrapers there yesterday and
Saturday that the holders wore una
ble to connect with.
Dal Williams only regret is that he
was fnroed to ne out of the game at
the time when the boys have struck
their gait. That's all right, Dal;
you have always performed your
duty well, and no one begrudges voti
Milton had them side-stepping yes
terday, and would have scored a shut-
nt but for the one base ni balls he
gave, lie had splendid control and
displayed neat head work in several
instances when a little hit would
have tied the score and possibly lost
the game for his side.
Kling, in bringing the one run of
the visitors yesterday, was guilty of
what appeared to be a deliberate at
tempt to disable O'Leary, who was
covering the plate. I he runner
struck the catcher in the leg in pass
ing, although there was plenty of
room, and inflicted a painful bruise.
Manager Donnelly is probably the
most modest man in town when dis
cussing the throe straight victories
from Terre Haute. He naturally feels
gotxl over the work his team has
been doing, but is not given to brag-
gadocia. lie says the team has the
stuff in it to win a fair share of
games and is working as hard as it
knows hiw, and will continue to do
so to the end of the season.
The teams at the bottom of the
list had an inning Saturday and yes
terday, and as the result the pros
pects of an interesting finish of the
season are greatly nugniented.
Rockford is now back in the 500 class
and Hugh Xicol will probnbly have
a bad sjh11 worrying over the prox
imity of Cedar Rapids. Decatur con
tinues to climb, and from present ap
pearances will be jostling Blooming-
ton before the season ends.
