Rati Umpiring Defeat a Ku.k 11
autl'M Chances at Winning in ! -enport
Saturday tod Sunday.
SERIES IS REMARKABLE ONE
Each Game Requiring More than Nine
Innings to Decide Hessler
Call Out on Strikes.
(' lar Rapids at Rock Island.
Davenport at Bloomington.
Dubuque ai Deeatnr.
Koekford at Springfield.
Davenport took the third game from
Rock Island yeaterday afternoon, end
ing one of the most remarkable series
ever played in the Thre-Eyo league,
.-very game in the series requiring
more tnan nine innings. The Rock
island team out batted their opponents
almost two to one and played a
mu h cleaner fielding game, but it
nested we hadn't been slated to win.
If the game was to have been won.
ire would have hagged it in the ninth,
when with the score a tie, 1 to 1. War
ner singled, Hessler laid down a hunt
and both were safe. I.iebhardt then
came to the plate and tried the same
thing. Williams got the hall, hut was
so bewildered that he just stood in
front of the plate and held it. With
'h- bases filled and no one out, it look
ed rosy for the- Islanders, but not a man
crossed the plate, due to some poor
coaching and a little raw work on
balls and strikes by .Meyers, of Daven
port, who. with Conroy. of this city,
acted as umpire, a feature that robbed
an otherwise interesting game of all
interest. This is how we lost: War
ner, who was on third, was playing
off a little too far and through poor
roarhlng was causal by Williams
ami Alperman. Thornton, who fol
lowed l.iebhardf. singled pret
tily to center, but Ives eaught Hessler
at the plate ami Lister ended the sus
pense for Daren port by striking out.
Gifts Give Davenport First Run.
I.iebhardt was opposed to Wallace,
and while he did not allow as manv
lils. he handed out four bases on balls
in:! hit three men. his gifts resulting
n Davenport's first run in the third.
fier Alperman and Williams had both
fanned. Lit bhardt hit Wallace and let
Ives walk. Wallace scoring on Ruby's
single. Crocket! went out from Lun
lin to Lister. Rock Island evened
things up in the fourth. Miller ami
Smith both singled. With Lundin at
the bai Wallace not only made a balk,
'.nil hit the batter, too. Lundin going
to first and Miller coming home from
third. This ended the scoring for the
locals, the next three going out. Nl i
ther side had a chance to score again
until the 11th. although men were on
frnscii in nearly every inning.
Triple Avails Nothing.
In the 11th. after Lundin had gone
otit to Ives. Warner laeed out a beau
tiful three-bagger in right field. But
it availed us nothing, for Meyers call
ed Hessler out on strikes and Lieb
bardt was thrown out at first by Al
perman. Davenport came right back
in their half of the same inning and
finished the game. Ruby was hit and
stole second, Crockett singled, putting;
Ruby on third, and then Mike Jacobs,
who was put in to bat for Staton in
the ninth, found the ball for a single,
and a rush was made for the cars:

DUST FROM THE DIAMOND.

Cedar Rapids here tomorrow. Tues

The boys played hard in all three
games, but the fates were against them.
Rock Island was up against it in the
Davenport gamea but was game to
Lundin covered short like a veteran
yesterday, having 10 chances without
Davenport had the best of it. not
only in the umpiring, but had the ad
vantage of batting last.
Rust's Yales. the pride of Davenport
among the amateur teams, went to
Buffalo yesterday and were defeated,
5 to 4.
The team is improving in base run
n:ia. and after all we do not know
but we prefer recklessness in this re
spert to stupidity.
If the results of the Davenport se
ries had been reversed would the quit
ters on the other side have been tak
ing the situation so philosophically as
they are now?
No lover of the game is Rock Island
objects to losing BUCb hard fought con
tents as the three played in Daven
port this week. im every baseball
lover is disgusted when it comes to
having to go tip against 10 men.
This is an off day in the lague. Rock
Island is playing at Clinton with the
Independents. Manager Nicol left this
morning with nine men. Capt. Miller,
Lister, Lakaff .Warner. Lundin, Hag
erman. Fesler and Ed and M. Smith.
The three Davenport games were
rea:arkable, the only circumstsince to
which objection could be taken being
that Rock Island was entitled to two
out of the three instead. The last two
were presented to Davenport through
partialiiy by the umpire.
Fisk, who has been playing short for
Rock Island, has been recalled by Des
Moines before the deal for signing him
by the local management could be
closed. Fisk came here with the un
derstanding that he should become a
member of the team if he made good,
but the details were not closed with
Des Moines, there was a change there,
and Fisk were ordered back. Sweeney,
who has been playing with Toledo, in
the American association, has been
signed, and is expected here tomor
row. Notice to Contractors.
Sealed proposals will be received at
the city clerk's office. Rock Island.
