Three base hit Howard. Home
When a team can make a pair of
two-base hits and a single in one in
ning and still fail to get a run it is a
sure sign that fate is against them
and they might as well sart the game
over again. On the other hand, when
3. team can get a run over the pan
while for the smallest space of a min
ute the ball is fumbled it is a pretty
good hunch that that is the team that!
has Dame Fortune working for it.
Yesterday Springfield got one lone
score on a play where there was a
man on first and one on third. The
man on first started to steal second
and Eng threw to head him off. Ber
ber took the throw and turned to hurl
it back and catch the man at the
plate, but for he first time for many
moons he dropped the ball for an in
stant and the man crossed the pan.
It was the only error the Islanders
made, but as usual an error meant
a run when it was the champs that
made it. Scott pitched a good game
and had the visitors held down pretty
well and deserved to win. On the
other hand although Case allowed but
four hits,: three of them came in one
nning and should have resulted in
a run had it not been for the perfect
base throwing of his teammates.
Looked Good In Ninth,
The only time the Islanders were
dangerous outside of the sixth, when
they made the three hits, was in the
ninth inning. Case went to pieces
and passed two men in succession,
a t ier a man was gone. Eng was up
and had he 'only waited as those be
foi c him had done he, too, would have
been given free transportation with
out any question. As it was he got
in the hole and had three balls and
two strikes. The next ball thrown
was away in and Gus nearly broke
his back dodging it, but in doing so
a f,wung his bat and was called out.
Cook started for third and the Spring-
eld "catcher threw the ball" to Her
bert and he was called out, both deci
sions, the one at the plate and the one
at third being decidedly yellow, how
The fateful inning in which the
champs made three hits, two of which
vurt for a pair of bases, was the
ixth. Murphy led off with a two
sacker and tried to stretch it into a
triple and he would have dono so had
the throw in from the field been any-
hing other than perfect. He was
tagged out at third by a mere matter
of inches. After Stark made the sec-
nd out with a dinky little bunt to
the. Infield, Novacek hit safely. Cook
landed out another two sacker in the
path marked out by Murphy's and
Novacek raced for the pan, but once
mere a perfect relay in from deep
center field cut the man 'off at the
i late just iu time. Had it not been
for the fine, throwing two runs at
east would have crossed the pan. It
was certainly a piece oi in toruine.

On the eve of their battle, which

To show that both were- In trim,
Maritsch had had the men box in pub
