Peoria, 111., July 20. (Special.)
Clever hitting on the part of the Dis
tillers took the final contest of the
series from the Islanders yesterday by
a score of 2 to 0. The game was a
battle between tho fields of the oppos
ing sides. Seldom before has a clean
er, snappier, contest been pulled off in
Lake View, and the crowd appreciated
It. Inning after iuning men came uPjsmith
and were mowed down in one, two j
three order. - -
The locals opened in the second in
ning. After one was out Biliz hit one
into center for two bases. Henley sent
him to third, and Kca.-ns did his first
notable "stunt" by poling a triple into
right. Asmussen was easy, however,
and grounded out to Dick.
In the fourth inning Jimmy Johnson
opened the session with a hit and was
sacrificed to second by Smith. Biltz
get by with his second hit of the game
and Jimmy came across. Then the Is
landers tightened up and the side was
retired by a double play.
Oet Many Men On.
The Islanders got a man on base in
every inning except the fifth and eighth,
but Asmussen was right, and about
half the time they were caught steal
