A Single and a Triple Rock Is
land's Undoing in Yester
day's Long Contest;
A PRETTY FIGHT AT THAT
Goes Fifteen Innings When Donnelly's
Senators Finally Break
It Up. '

Cedar Rapids, 4; Decatur. 2.
Davenport-Peorla (wet grounds).
Decatur at Rock Island.
Springfield at Cedar Rapids.
Bloom ington at Davenport;
Peoria at Dubuque.
With a single, a triple and a long
fly in the 15th inning, the Senators
broke the spell of yesterday's game
and made it three straight from the
Islanders. It was a record breaking
game of the league thus far this sea
son, both sides playing 14 innings
without a score. Yet only a handful
of people hdd the pleasure of seeing it.
The threatening weather was respon
sible for the small crowd and when
the game opened the diamond was
heavy and soft. As the play went on
it dried out and the players were more
sure of their positions.
Pitcher la Mhup.
Although Springfield did it to Con
verse when he was down there, he
went in yesterday and gave them the
game of their lives. In both pitching
and fielding he was there some. He
struck out the first three men at the
bat, and at the end of the nine in
nings had allowed only three hits,
pitching seven innings with one single.
He had 12 fielding chances.
Bridges was in equally good shape,
but his no-hit Innings came in the lat
ter half of the game. The Islanders
started out picking off one here and
there and in the nine innings had
twice as many as Springfield, but made
only one after that. The strike-outs
were even, seven each, and Bridges
gave the only pass.
Hoot It Fintabrd.
Cameron was the beginning of the
end. He put a long single down the
first base line, and was brought home
with a triple by Scharnweber, who,
with Cameron and Donnelly, made all
of the hits. . With Scbarnweher on
third Pearce hit a long fly to center
field and the runner scored on the
throw. The score:

The Senators got out of the 15 In
nings without an error. The Islanders
went through the nine with only one.
Spanton and Converse work like a
clock around the first bag.
Olmsted got away with a good game
at short stop and worked out the only
pass of the game.
There was some criticism of Car
ruthers, and perhaps he was off a few.
But umpires have their off days the
same as players.
It was a fast game, 15 innings in
Con got out of a couple of bad holes;
one in the 10th and one in the 14th.
The Islanders made some errors, but
they did not count in the results. Don
nelly's men simply batted it out.
Rock Island admittedly got the worst
of the close decisions, but Bobby Car
ruthers is a good umpire at that.

DOPE FOR THE FANS.
The engagements of Boston and Chi
cago In the two big leagues yesterday
were notable events. In the American
league the Boston former champions
who had met with 20 straight defeats,
broke the hoodoo with the White Sox
and won 3 to 0. The Chicago Nation
als defeated the Bostonians and as St.
Louis took care of New York, returned
to first place in the percentage column.
Boston fans have staid loyally by the
Americans through all their hard luck
and the team has remained game. This
is an object lesson for other towns who
have losing teams.
Manager Kennedy of the Davenport
team announces that he Is entire boss
of proceedings and will have discipline
at any cost. It has also been arranged
to place an officer in plain clothes in
the bleachers to put an end to obnox
