A. long two-sacker by Hurry Kelley
In the eighth inning won yesterday's
gajne at the local park for the Isl
anders after chance after chance had
been passed up to secure enough runs
to win three' such contests. The final
Ecore was 1 to 0 and the cipher shows
Just about what Dubuque deserved at
the hands of Bob Couchman, who was
on the firing line. Bob had everything
ap his sleeve, was cool and steady and
sxceedingly effective with men, on the
bases. Seven hits were secured off
his delivery, but onsy one of them
lame with a man on the bases, and
they usually happened after two were
down. 1 In addition to this Bob had his
strikeout ball working nicely, as the
nino men who fanned at his elusive
curves without hitting them can tes
tify. Glass did the work for the vis
itors, and while he allowed only six
safeties, it was because the Islanders'
hitting clothes were not on them. Pop
nps and bunts were In order whenever
a single would have meant a run, and
Mr. Glass was exceedingly fortunate
in pulling out of several , pretty bad
Keep Bases not.
The Islanders had the bases pretty
well warmed in all but three rounds
and it was little short of marvelous
that only one tally was made. In the
second inning O'Leary walked, Slat
tery hit, and Kelley, in trying to bunt,
scratched a hit when Lerchen slid in
ths mud and failed to get hold of the
ball. The bunt was a perfect one and
Harry was "at the sack before there
was any more chance to get him. This
filled the bags without a single man
being out and the chances looked
bright for about three - runs before
three men were retired. vXot so, how
ever, for Kohl rolled a nice one to the
pitcher and a double play, at the plate
and at first, resulted. Chances were
still good for two runs on a single,
but the hit was not forthcoming, Vo
gel's offering a bunt to the pitcher.
Keep on Threatening
The Islanders continued to threaten
!n each of the next three rounds, but
always let up with just threatening,
much to the relief of Mr. Glass. In
the third inning Couchman poled a
liner over short and went on second
on Hunter's pretty sacrifice. Manusch
was transported on four wide ones and
there were two on the bags with only
one down. Callahan and OLeary both
failed to deliver, and the two men
perished where they stood. In the
fourth Slattery secured his second
clean drive of the. game and reached
third, but again the side was retired
with no one having scored. Three
men were on the sacks in the fifth
and only one down as the result of a
base' on balls, an error by Outfielder
Daringer and a scratch hit which
O'Leary secured when Glass diverted
a grounder so .that no one could se
cure it In time to get Dan. Slattery
failed this time, though, and again no
Score With Two Down.
In the eighth, Callahan and O'Leary
each were out and it began to look as
though another extra inning game was
due. Slattery took two strikes and
then let four wide ones pass by with
the result that he reached first. Then
came Kelley with a long drive between
teft and center and Slats came home
on it. while Kelley went to third on
th3 throw to the plate. Kohl's fly to
:enter ended the inning, but the win
ning run was over the pan and as it
turned out it mattered not tnat no
more runs were obtained.
Dubuque threatened to score only
twloe and each time they were effect
ively squelched. In the eighth Kelley's
srror gave Glass a life at first and Tay
lor's drive to center sent him to sec
Dnd. Ronan followed with a duplicate
of the one poled by Taylor and Glass
stretched his legs for home, but it was
of no avail. Callahan lined the ball
:lear to the plate wKhout a bound
and O'Leary had the s-phere before the
runner had arrived within 10 feet of
the pan. That was the only occasion
cf any of the visitors reaching third
base. In the ninth Reagan led off with
a double, but Couchman tightened up
and retired the next three men nicely
and ended the game. The score:

With Score Tied 2 to
2 in Ninth Round
'With the score tied, 2 to 2,in the first
half of the ninth, the Islanders were
compelled to leave the grounds ' at
Bloomington Saturday to catch a train
for home. This saved the Keenanites
from a beating and left the champs
even with four games won and four
lost on the southern trip. Incidentally,
it was the third tie of the spring for
Three hits gave Bloomington a run
in the first round and in the fourth
the Islanders tied it upon a hit and
steal by O'Leary and a two-base drive
by Whitney, two being down at the
time. The other run of the visitors
was made in the next round on a hit
by Kohl, sacrifice by Vogel and a two
base hit by Cavet. Bloomington tied
in the eighth after two were down with
a single by Godwin and a three-bagger
by Melchoir. Score:

r:CTES OF THE GAME
Off for Dubuque tomorrow for
The stay of the Islanders at home
this time is altogether too brief. Ev
ery one wants- to see them.
The champs played ball yesterday
as the fans here like to see it played,
good clean fielding and at work all
the time when at bat. A team that
plays that way is bound to he a win
ner. Reagan made three hits off Couch
man, nearly half the entire number
gathered in by the visitors, but he
never got farther than second base,
although two of his bingles opened
the inning in which they occurred.
He was thrown out at second twice
and the other time he got there on
account of his hit being a two-saeker.
Big Bob certainly twirled splendid
ball and he was never. In danger. His
support, too, was gilt-edged.
With the return to the game of
Willie Hunter. Tighe has placed
Manusch in right field and Hunter
in left. The change ought to im
prove the fieldng of the team.
Slattery locked mighty good on
first yesterday. He nabbed every
thing that came his way, including
two hot grounders, and in addition he
threw one man out at second. His
two hits were clean bingles.
Callahan's throw to the plate in
the eighth was perfect. It was from
medium center field and everyone
expected him to relay it home, but
the ball came in on a line and plunk
ed into O'Leary's big mitt within two
feet of the plate. All Dan had to
do was wait for the runner.
Manager TiEhe refuses to credit
the recent defeats suffered by the
team to a lack of luck. He says that
while this may have figured, it was
poor playing purely that did the bus
iness. He said the team played good
ball at times, but at other times it
went right up in the air and literally
threw away games that were already
won. It seemed that every time an
Islander erred it was followed by a
hit by the other side. He refuses
to concede that breaking even on the
road was a good record to come home
with and holds the opinion that the
team should have. won eight out of
the nine game3 played while away.
Danville, in his opinion, is one of the
teams to be feared, regardless of the
Who Pitched Superbly.
fact that it. is now at the bottom of
the column. In regard to Whitney,
the first sacker who replaced Slattery
on the road, Tighe states that he had
to be let go, as he would not sign up
within the salary limit set by the
league. He was a good pteyer, but
the salary rules could not be broken
for him. He was sold immediately by
Memphis to Atlanta, in the Southern
league, and he left Saturday evening
to join hi3 new team.

FINISH IN SIGHT
Doc Childs Ready to Sell De
catur Ball Team in North
DIDN'T KNOW WHEN TO QUIT
Experience Like TItat of Broberg at
Cedar Rapids Game May Be
Killed for Long Time.
The finish is In sight at Decatur.
Doc Childs is willing to sell bis ball
team of 12 men, fully outfitted, his
park, fully equipped, and Dal Williams
to boot, for I3J00. As one Decatur
paper puts it the reason is "partly be
cause of business interests, but large
ly because of the indifference of the
city toward the team in general and
its failure to get away good." Mean
while Williams keeps pegging away.
Friday Lacey and Dashner, pitchers,
blew up and lest a game to Jackson
ville and Dal fired both of them.
Catcher Schissel was ordered by Secre
tary Farrel to report to Galesburg,
which had a prior claim on him, and
that left Decatur with hardly enough
men to play a game.. Williams scur
ried about and got a couple of men
that he had previously cut oft the pay
roll and coaxed them to come back
and help out. Then Kinsella at
Springfield offered to loan a couple of
his surplus pitchers for the emergency
and so the game went on.
Ready to Quit Lant Year.
The truth of the matter is that De
catur was ready to quit baseball ia.
yea" It should have been given rhat
privilege and in, another year or twb
it would have been ready to return to
ths game with an improved appetite.
With the farce that is going on this
year in Commodoreville, however, the
people are becoming disgusted and the
baseball fans will be converted into
fans of some other brand and it will
be nix for the national game for a long
time. Belden Hill's good ense has
probably averted such a situation at
Cedar Rapids, though the results of
Broberg's experiment last year will be
felt for several seasons.

Some of the Three-Eye sports
writers hate to glve a visiting team
anything. If a hit is made it was a
"lucky drive" or "Just out of the
reach" of somebody, while if a home
player hits safely it is a "screaming
drive," or "wc'l placed blngle' while
if the runner made two bases on it
it "could easily have been stretched
into a triple."
Outfielder Freddie Ochs is to be sold
