The Commodores defeated the Is

and would have been called on ace-run.

just as the crowd was leaving the
grand stand. Bittrolff was serving
them for the visitors and lie had littie
the advantage over Howard, who was
on the slab for the Islanders.
The Islanders till had their heads in
the game, and their base running was
good. Powell starred in the hit: in
column for the visitors, he having two
doubles to his credit, and he managed
to make home on both of them.

leaving Bittrolff standing on third.
In the sixth inning, the Commodores
had an excellent chance to break up
the game, but Tighe's men tightened
up at the critical times and kept them
from scoring. Jeffries led oft' in this
inning with a tip up to Wanner. Ten

bagger, advancing Tennant to thirl
sack. Purtell was given a pass to
first, this filling the bases. Krebs th

Py this time the wind was blowing
a gale and clouds of dust swept up I:

Dowers waited and took first on four

He fouled off a couple and finally after
getting a couple of balls and Dowers

strike. Almost on the instant tl
