With a regular old time garrison
anish in which nice clean hits came
test and furious, the Islanders pounded
out a ylctory in the eighth, ninth and
tenth innings of the first game of yes
terday's double header bill with the
Pretzels at the local park. The final
counting was 6 to 5 and when the bom
bardment of Pitcher Delave com
menced in the eighth inning the home
team was just five scores to the bad;
in other words, Davenport had been
presented with five runs while the Isl
anders' total still consisted of a goose
egg. With things in this shape, three
of the needful were made in the eighth,
two in the ninth and the winning one
in the tenth, and the speed and dis
patch with which it was all done after
the Islanders had once set out to do it
made the record breaking crowd which
was at the park stand up and howl
tlitir approval in no uncertain way.
Error Count for Scotch.
Cavet did the heaving for the locals
aMi3s work h that department of the
iJe was gilt edged, but his own field
ing and the. fielding of his teammates
was of the kind that would make a
saint swear had it not been for the
stick work at the end of the game
which redeemed the errors. Pug al
lowed but four hits in th nine innings
he faced the visitors and yet five runs
came over the pan. He offended him
self the worst of all. as he piled up
three bungles, two of which aided ma
terially in the visitors' scoring. Kohl
was the second prize offender, his of
fering being two exceedingly unnamed
throws in the direction of first base,
both of which went clear into the
bleachers. Jacohsen and Vogel each
made a bungle, making the grand total
seven. Practically every one of them
counted materially in the run getting
also, and it is safe to say that with
Errorless play the Prodigals would not
have reached third once in the game.
How Davenport Scored.
In the second inning Kohl's first
wild heave let llolycross reach second
and sacrifices by Irby and Nye brought
him over the plate. In the sixth
Ohland scratched a hit and both he
and Hilley were, safe when Cavet fum
bled Hilley's bunt. A sacrifice hit and I
a long fly to Manusch counted the see- j
ond of the visitors runs. In the next j
round Nye reached first when Jacob- j
con hie thirrl ctriUo anrl Va-r1 I
erred in catching a throw to first on
Hickman, leaving bath .men saf
Coveney bunted and the ball rolled
along the line undecided whether to
go safe or foul. Cavel reached it when
it was foul and let it roll, ,but the
sphere laughed at this indiscretion and
rolled back into the diamond and the
bags were full with no one out. Then
Cavet made the worst play of the day
in throwing to Kellv. The ball went
into the overflow crowd which was on
the field and as the ground rules p
mitted two runners trotted home. n
the eighth Kohl's second two has"
error and a hit by Hickman made the
fifth run and the rabid Davenport
rooters had vision of the bonfire that
they were going to build on the levee
to celebrate such a hard earned vic
tory. Then came the catastrophe
which brought grief and sorrow to
them so that they never quite recov
ered, although they won the second
Pound Delarr from Box.
Commencing in 'the eighth, the Isl
anders donned their batting clothes
and it took them just three innings to
overcome the lead of five scores which
Davenport had and get the extra one
needed to win the game. In the
eighth Hunter opened with a pass and
after Manusch had poled one to Ohl
and, Callahan drove one through Holy
cross and the good work started.
Stark teased Delave into issuing an
other pass and excitement- was intense j
as the bases were filled with islanders
and only one down. Pa Shaffer came
out of his cage and behaved in a fran
tic manner as he motioned this player
and that just where to stand to get the
ball which he felt in his heart was
going to be dropped into safe territory.
Kelly relieved the suspense for the
Davenporters to some extent by pop
ping out on a foul fly, but Eddie Koh
with a record of two misplays staring
him in the face, made good for them
both by driving one out to the back
fence that brought two men over the
pan. That put the Pretzels in the air
higher than a kite and Nye hobbled
on Vogel's grounder and the third run
was in. Kohl was sent in on the play
also, but Nye recovered in time to get
him at the plate and end the inning. '
The next round saw Davenport a
beaten team when they came on the
field. Jacobsen opened with a hit into
right and Slattery, batting for Cavet,

drove one over second, and Delave was
yanked out of the box.
Archer Prove No Better.
The Islanders were not to be denied,
however, and they took right after
Archer, who replaced Delave. Hun
ter's out at first moved both base run
ners along a notch, and then Manusch
poled one Into left field that brought
both men home with enough scores to
tie up the contest. What mattered it
that a double play retired the side a
minute later. It was the Islanders'
game ell right and everyone felt that
the e'nd was merely postponed until
the next inning, as in fact it was.
With one down. Kohl cleared himself
entirely for his two errors by pulling
out his second two-sacker"of the game
and then Otto Vogel delivered the
goods as he has done innumeraaw
times before. The Islander seeond
sacker picked out one of Mr. Archer's
pet curves and thoroughly pickled it.
driving it clear to the back fence on
the fly and wholly out of the reach ot
the outfielders. Amid pandemonium
Kohl crossed the plate with the win
ning run and the game was over. The

Kids, Let Pretzels
Have the Second One
The second of the day's bill went to
the visitors from across the river as a
matter of courtesy. After the Island
ers had grabbed the first game right
out of the hands of the Pretzels, it
would have been a shame to beat them
out again and there was apparently no
desire on anyone's part to do this.
Bob Couchman, who pitched the last
inning of the first game after Slattery
had batted for Pug Cavet, did the
twirling and he did a neat job of it,
although he was wild to the extent of
six bases on balls. He allowed but
four hits and should have had a shut
out game to his credit as far as it
went had it not been for an offense on
the same order as that of Cavet. With
a man on first he threw one into the
crowd and allowed the runner to amble
to third from which point he scored
on a nice squeeze play- With that one
exception he was there all the time
and he held the visitors without more
runs despite the three errors which
his teammates added to the one he
Smith n Puzzle.
Max Smith went on the firing line
for the Pretzels in the second game
and he proved quite a puzzle to the
Islanders who had apparently spent
themselves in their final spurt to vic
tory in the first game. He did not
seem to have anything in particular
and still the locals could not land on
him effectively principally, because
from the change of speed of Delave
and Archer to the slow dopy ball that
Smith tosses up. As it was Smith got
away with the second shutout handed
to the Islanders -this year. There were
a number of features in the second
contest, but after the exciting finish of
the game before the whole thing ap
peared tame. Davenport fans accepted
the victory in the spirit in which it
was given and saw little occasion for
crowing while the local fans were still
talking about that batting rally of the
first game when the second one was
all over. The game ended 1 to 0 with

The Islanders will be home for 11
more games before hitting the road.
Guess they'll all take off their hats

when he made his first appearance on
Bobby Carruthers umpired two nice
games yesterday and we are glad to
have him in our midst.
That win probably save Smith his
job on the Davenport team. He had
been slated for release.
Davenport now has two to our one,
but it looks as though the hoodoo is
due to do its work again.
It wouldn't be a bad hunch to say
that Tighe's men will be over the .500
mark when they leave their home lot
After the conclusion of the first
game the Davenport contingent began
ducking as usual and when the second
game was over there wa3 not enough
of them left to make any audible
sounds of victory.
Another bonfire spo'led. The across
the creek crowd had it all cooked up
Wilson, pitching for Elgin, shut
out Freeport yesterday without a
hit or an error.

Pitcher Torrey's sale by Kinsella to
the New York Giants appears to have
been bonafide. At any rate Springfield
papers claim the Senators' boss has
just-pocketed 53,500 as the balance
to make a demonstration at night and
possibly invade' Rock Island with red
fire, for they counted that they surely
had both games won, in view of the
condition of the Islanders.
The strong wind that was blowing
across the field made hard work for
the outfielders and some feature
catches were made by the men on
both teams. Davenport had the more
chances for these, however, as the Isl
anders did most of the hitting.
Had the 'islanders done as well In
the field as they did at the bat it would
have been two games for them yester
day. It would have been a shame,
though, for that would have meant
work for the coroner and the under
taker in the burg across the river west
of Bettendorf. -
Wonder what those Three-Eye
league cities that want to get into
faster company and that never get to
gether more than 3,000 in their ball
parks think of that convocation of ours
yesterday. If Springfield ever enter
tained such a crowd Kinaella would
try to break into the National league.
Up to the eighth inning of the first
game it looked like a fluke vitcory for
Davenport similar to lis ilrst game ot
the season in Davenport. The Prodi
gals did not earn a single run during
the entire day. Then came the garri
son finish and the Islanders won out
In great style.
Rock Island and Davenport may
have their own differences in a base
ball way, but beyond all that mey
are the two citie3 that are keeping
the rest of the teams in the class
they are now. Last year, Rock Is
land and Davenport were first and
second respectively in point of at
tendance, and from the present out
look the same will be true this year.
The Prodigai reefers came over with
the intention or profiting by the crip
pled condition of the Islanders and
taking two games and then having a
celebration on the levee similar to the
one of last year when they won two
games in one. day from Rock Island.
Needless to say there was no bonfire
last night. That first game stared them
in the face all night.
Manusch hit the ball yesterday in a
I manner that showed how it is that he
i is leadinc the Islanders with 'the stick.
Two of his three hits were doubles
and he was robbed of two more in a
sensational manner. One of these, a
line drive scarcely v-er two yards

raised higher it would undoubtedly
have cleared the back fence.
i Joe Slattery had a whole lot to do
I with winning yesterday's game, de
spite the fact that he was replaced at
first fry Stark. Joe was summoned in
the ninth inning to hit for Cavet and
with a man on base and no one down
! he poled a nice single over second
base which cnused Pa Shaffer to yank
Mr. D?lave off the mound. Joe's score
was the one which tied the game and
made victory possible.
One of the anany Rock Island fan
ettes at the games yesterday made a
reply to a Davenporter that effectively
shut him up for the remainder of the
game. Jacobsen had just poled a hit
and the Davenporter was yelling de-1
risivcly that Rock Island ought to be
proud of a man who could get a hit off
Davenport. The fanette turned around
and cried: "You bet we are proud of
him. He is a champ and that is some
thing you have never had." She was
cheered to the echo for her quick wit.
Even Davenport supporters will have
to admit that luck broke their way
yesterday. The Islanders made all the
extra base hits and at least two of
them were cut.from three to two bases
by ground rules. In both cases, as it
happened, runs were prevented be
cause of this. In the same way Daven
port benefited from overthrows into
the crowd, three men scoring in this
way. while the Islanders were never
advanced past third under the , same
Holycross, the much bragged of
pinch hitter of the Prodigals, scratched
two hits in the two games and had
innumerable opportunities to score
men, but failed every time. Remem
bering what their own cowardly mana
ger does when a touted Islander batter
has a chance to bring in a run, the
Davenport fans yelled to the Uoci
Islander pitchers to "pass him"' on
these occasions, but never a thought of
that entered the Islanders' minds and
they showed Mr. Holycross up every
The official attendance at the park
yesterday was 8.300. This of course is
double the number of bona fide paid ad
missions, due to the fact that the ad
mission price was double the ordinary.
A careful estimate of the actual at

is a record for the Island City park. The

for the local club that they had to be
