The Rock Island baseball team pull
ed itself into the .500 class yesterday
by defeating Cedar Rapids 4 to 2 in a
hard! Idling, cleanly played game.
While Rock Island was given a boost
in the percentage column Cedar Rap
ids lost her grip on first place anil
was displaced by Decatur.
The Iowa men put in Holmes to do
the pitching, and he was expected to
do up the locals in short order, but
when the fracas was over he hail
been pounded for It hits, one of them
a three-bagger, while Smith proved a
puzzle and' was found for hits only
four times. Vancline, at third, cap
tured the hearts of the fan by the
way he fielded his position, taking
five chances without an error, wind
ing up with a svemingly impossible
catch, which was converted into a
double play by catching the other
runner otT first base.
Score In Second.
Rok Island's first score was made
in the second inning after (iray and
Rcbsamei had been retired. O'Leary
singled, ami then scored on Dickey's
lively two-bagger, the ball being- lined
out along the left chalk mark close
to the fence. Vandine flew out to
tenter anil the side was retired. In
the fourth a base on balls and a hit
put two men on base for the visitors
and an error by (iraham allowed Nnv
aeek ami Hill to score afler two men
I ttere ut. Vn,e balance of the game
bock Island pin veil with machme-like
precision and blanked the visitors for
five straight innings in one-two-three
order. In the fifth inning Rock Isl
and had eidcntly slipped on hitting
clothes. Donnelly and (iraham hit
and were scored on Rebsamcn's lucky
three-bagger, lucky because it would
have rnly been a good single if t lie
Cedar Rapids fielders had been more
One of the features of the game
was Dickey's hitting, and three out of
the four times- he was at bat he did
the proper thing in the projer man
ner, but was denied the satisfaction
of a run by stress of circumstances.
In the seventh imiing Rock Island
made its last run, Donnelly crossing
the plate. He was the first man up
and connected with the leather for a
clean single. (Iraham was caught out
on a high .fly by the catcher, but a
sacrifice by (Iray and an error in
fielding the ball in by the center let
Donnelly run in for his tally.
In the eighth inning Hickey hit for
the Rabbits and got to base. Hines,
next up. caught the ball fairly for n
cracking smash which looked like a
certain hit, but Yandine clapped his
milts onto it and had the ball over
to first before Hickey could get. back,
making the prettiest double play of
the season to date. Score:

With another fall taken out
of the teams that have been
leading the league by Rock
Island and Blooniington. and the
walloping of Davenport by Decatur,
there is another change in the per
centage column and Decatur goes to
the top for a period of glory, with
Blooniington puffing and sweating S
points behind. Rockford. so recently
the champions and apparently easy
leaders, are in fourth place.
The race has reached au interest
ing stage ami Rock Island has nothing
to be ashamed of. True, we hae been
below the 51M) mark the greater ra i t
ofi'llu time, but the teams that hae
been at the head haxe owed their
lead to what they hate taken out of
poor Dubuque. Davcnort, Cedar
Rapids and Rockford have each play
ed two scries with Dubuque, and ; 1 1
of the 10 games Dubuque has won
three. Those 13 games cut up among
llie three have more than kept them
in their places. On the other hand
loliet has broken een with Dubuque
in two games anil the other three
teams have- not yet met the tailend
ers. Rock Island playing the first
game with them today.
Assuming tjiat either of the teams
would have beaten Dubuque in the
same proportion? of contests, which
seems safe, it would look as though
Rock Island logically ought to be
classed ahead of all the northern
teams with Decatur ami Blooniington
favorites in the race.

who will join the team tomorrow and
will probably be put in the infield at
nce. He played last year with the
New York State league, where he
was a member of the Albany team
that won the pennant last year.
Oft the Hat.
(5uy Dickey wielded a wicked willow
yesterday afternoon. Three hits in
four times up and if he had't tried to
bunt who knows but he could have
made it four.
Vandine got the hand yesterday.
Five, hard chances came his way and
he handled them all. That double he
fjmlled off with the assistance of Dick
ey was certainly a corker.
(iill out in left literally robbed
('lxar.v of a three-bagger in the fifth.
With a man on third anil another
run very- much desired. Dannie crack
ed out the hottest kind of a liner be
tween the center and left. "A three
bagger!" yelled the fans ecstatically.
But Gill by straining every nerve got
there just in time to poke his mitts
in front of it.
The Decatur management will not
get another man in the place of Whitt-
kow, the left fielder who was drow
ed Tuesday. Instead H. Walters will
switch from right to left and Wei
gand and Martens, the pitchers, will
alternate in the right suburb.
Of the Blooiningtotr players four
have batted over the 300 mark so far.
They are Mtillaney, Mctireevy, Smith
and liodwin. Mullaney has made a
remarkable record in the field. With
123 putouts and 10 assists he has not
made an error and his fielding average
is accordingly 1.000.
President Smith, of the Terre Haute
J. C. iytr O...
team, has received $G0O for the re
lease of Hackett and Brown, formerly
pitchers for the Hoosier club.
Cedar Rapids fell before the Rock
Island team. Quite a change. The
southern teams are not so slow. Du
buque Telegraph-Herald. !
Rockfordi fans expect much from
Calhoun, the college pitcher, who will'
join the team after school. It begins
to look as if Nicol needed some kind
of a wonder to use in the box. Cal
houn pitched against Northwestern
university last Friay and struck out
12 men. allowing two hits and made
the winning run for his own team,
the DeKalb Normals.
The Rockford team is even heavier
than that of last year, but they are
not there with the stick compared
with last season's team, and it is a
mystery to all at thesgame how they
secured the lead in the race, compar
ed with the slugguig teams of Rock
Island and Decatur. Blooniington
Amos Scott, pitcher for Terre
Hante's Central league club, has been
offered a place with the St. Louis
Cardinals, and in turn he has asked
the Terre Haute management for
more salary. It is probable that the
increase will be granted. Scott was a
high school pitcher at Bethel. Ohio,
two years ago. when he was given a
trial by the Cincinnati Reds. He had
speed, but poor control, and did not
last long. He went to Tern- Haute
last season. So far this season he
has- won fixe and lost one game. l!c
is regarded by Terre Haute fau as
a better pitcher than cither ISrown
