In a long drawn out game, which at
one time was as quiet as a Sun
day school picnic and ' at others
was a slugging match, Hock Island de
feated Hloomington here yesterday
afternoon sifter 11 innings of play by
the choc score of ! toi. With the
score 8 to G at the beginning of the
second half of the eighth inning. Rock
Island pulled the game out of the
tire with the assistance of a two-bagger
by Rebsamen and timely hitting
won the match in the eleventh. It
was Rlooniingf on's game up to the
ninth inning, four runs in the eighth
bringing the home team within strik
ing distance, -l.oth twirlers Were"
touched up freely, Case for 12 and
touched up freely, Case for 11 and
Belt for 12 hits.
The crowd was one of the largest
that has ever attended a weekday
contest in this city and the rooting
was a feature, Everybody had plen
ty of excitement in fact the game
was a surfeit of it. Mayor McCono
chie officiated in delivering the first
ball to the bat, and King, who was
up, obligingly swiped at it, but missed
A Lone Contest.
The first three innings were feature
less, not a run being scored on either
side. In the fourth. Smith for l.Ioom
ington dropped a clean hit to left,
but was caught at second. Krrors by
Case and Dickey were responsible in
a measure for (iodwin's score. In the
second half of the fourth Donnelly
and (iraham got on bases and electri
fied the bleachers by scampering home
on a wilil throw to second.
In the fifth inning Hloomington
stock took a rise when Donovan
smashed the ball over the south fence
on the luunce for a home run. Mill
laney and Smith soon scored on a
two-bagger by Truby. It begin to
look '.like a carnage when Oodwin
welted the leather, but Truby was
caught at third and lirown retired
the side with a drive to short.
A Hot Finish.
No more scoring was done until the
eighth inning, when Relt ajid lirown
scored for, Hloomington,' while Hock
Island went through a comedy of er
rors. Hut Rock Island redeemed her
vanishing reputation in this inning by
falling on Darker for "three two-baggers
and a single which brought in
four scores. Two more were add?d
by each side in the ninth, again tying
the score. Hloomington was blanked
in both the last innings, but the home
team rallied in magnificent shape and
pounded out the victory in the elev
enth. Score: : '
