WIN WILD AND
Islanders Have Edge on Bloom
ers in a Comedy of Bum
THE SCORE IS KEPT DOWN
2avet Polls Out of Many Tight
Places, 11 Hits and Four Errors
' Giving Single Rim.
Rock Island at Bloomlngton.'
. Davenport at Peoria.
Waterloo at Danville.
Dubuque at Springfield.
Bloomlngton, 111., Aug. 23 (Special).
In a wild and woolly game yesterday
the Islanders' had a shade on the
Bloomers and came out with one to
the good. Bone headed plays on both
sides cut down the score. Blooming
ton excelling in this line of accom
plishment. No fewer than 18 Bloom
ers got on first during the afternoon,
but only one scored. This is believed
t. be a record.
The home team made 11 hits, Cavet
passed two and hit' one, and four sur
vived on errors. Poor base running
and inability to find Cavet in the
pinches was characteristic of Bloom
ington's work and helped the Islanders
out of many tight places. The Champs
also threw away a number of fine
chances to count.
The Islanders scored in the fourth.
Callahan fanned, Davidson walked'and
looked second on a wild pitch. Staten
messed Manusch's grounder and David
son counted. Godwin, who recovered
the ball threw late to the plate, and
, Nunamaker heaved it back to second
to head off Manusch. Instead the
sphere rolled out into center and
George came all the way around.
. One In the Eighth.
Bloomington's lone score was regis
tered In the eighth. Melchoir beat out
an infield hit and took second on Kel
ley's poor throw to first. Erwin ad
vanced the runner with a hit and
Staten attempted to bunt for a
squeeze, but nobody got the ball and it
went for a hit. R'oyer fanned, but
Madigan hit and filled the sacks. Kee-
nan fouled out and Godwin knocked
the ball down in front of the plate, O'
Leary picking it up and holding it on
the rubber for a force out. Score:
