Wdtteri Puts Riversides to the
Bad in the Seventh
WILSON HAS GOOD CONTROL
Islanders Start Another Hitting Bee
f.imilar to Proceedings in the
Rock Island at Cedar Rapids.
Dubuque at Davenport.
Peoria at Bloomington.
Springfield at Decatur.
With a three-base hit Hank Walters
put the Riversides to the bad in the
seventh inning yesterday afternoou.
bringing in two srores. and crossing
the plate himself on a hit by Wilson.
And just to cinch things the Islanders
took two more scores in the eighth,
which ended the game, 5 to 2.
It was a shame to take the money,
especially in front of 3,000 people and
after taking the big end of the tricks
In the morning. But that was the
game the Islanders needed, and the
seventh inning was just as good a time
Jo take it as any other.
Wllitoa Had iotl Coalrol.
Wilson was in the box for the Isl
anders and he showed much better con
trol than he had the last time he work
ed, anil incidentally did some pretty
fine fielding that contributed to the
winning of his game. There were nine
hits. It took three of them in the fifth
to make a score and three In the sixth
to finish a run. After that there was
nothing doing. McGreevey was put in
to bat in Baker's place in the ninth for
the purpose of scaring Christie and
starting something, but all there was
to McGreevey was three good strike.
and out and it was all over.
The Islanders pulled out several hits
in the early part of the game, but they
were unable to get enough of them to
gel her to make a showing. They went
up to the seventh with a row of ci
phers. Then Wanner start ed it off with
a single. Vandine came up and put
one on the ground into right field, but
Swalm fumbled it in trying to gather
it in. and the runner went to second,
Uaviug Wanner on third.
Waltrra Seorrm Two.
It was then that Hank Walters came
up and the mob howled. Everybody
knew he could do it. and those who
knew him best thought that he would
do it and it was good for three bases
McConnell hit one on the ground to
Alperman, which kept Walters on the
third bag, but Christie Wilson came up
and touched the one that did the busi
ness. Of course that was' enough to win
the game, but Davenport had lv
more chances at the bat and it was not
safe to leave it that way. So the boys
got together and fixed up a deal for
two more in the eighth. Lister led
off with a hit. Sweeney bunted, and
in an attempt to catch Lister at sec
ond little Pete dropped the ball and
both landed safely. Wanner sacrificed
and advanced both runners. Vandine
hit a long fiy to left field and Lister
heat the ball in. Sweeney scored on
a hit by Walters.
our la Fifth.
Davenport started to do business In
the fifth after two men had filed out
to Ruby. Lilevelt, Williams and Baker
each came up and found the ball safe
ly, t-coring Lilevelt. In the sixth Har
rod started it off with a base on trails,
Crockett sacrificed. Swalm hit to cen
ter field and Harrod attempted to score
but misjudged Carlisle's arm and eye
and ran right into the ball at the plate.
Webster and Alperman both singled,
the latter scoring Swalm.

Wanner again figured conspicuously
In two double plays yesterday.
King McGree-vey was not so many
after all after the third strike.
Three singles, a two-bagger and a
three base hit is Vandiae's rtcord la
the two games.

In the last four games Walters has

Sweeney knocked down a hot one
from Webster's bat in the sixth. It
would hare done some damage if he
had not stopped it.
Vandine gets two neckties and Wan
ner and Walters each get one from the

two base hit or better.
Christie did some nice work in the
ninth. Two assists and a strike out

Sweeney was in fair way to winning
a box of cigars for hitting the Argus
sign, but Harrod held him up in day

It was a clever piece of work and
