Rock Island at Waterloo.
Dubuque at Davenport.
After dropping three straight games
by decisive scores to the Islanders
and apparently Being In a fair war to
get the short end of the fourth con
test, the poor down trodden Pretxels
finally had their inning- yesterday aft
ernoon and they took vengence upon
Rock Island for the treatment accord
ed them up to that time. The game
w& a joke after the Pretzels once
got started and they ran wild on the
bases thanks to six errors made by the
Islanders who seemed to have caught
the spirit of the thing and were at
tempting to let the O'Learyites win a
game. The final count was 9 to 7.
Whiteside, Lakaff and Hofer all look
their turn 1a the box in an attempt to
stop the Darenporters but they were
cot to be denied. They made seven of
their scores in Che last three innings.

with the retiring of Stevens and Slat
tery. PRETZELS BUNCH HITS.
Up until the sixth inning, the Pret
zels looked like a badly beaten bunch
but in that round a little loose work
coupled with a pair of hits netted as
many runs and tied the game. Two
had been gamed In the fourth Then
Whiteside passed two and allowed two
scratch hits. In the sixth, Ohland
fanned but Bromwich made a bit and
stole second. Crangle bunted to
Whiteside and the latter broke Into
the "bone column" by throwing to
third without a chance of catching the
runner, who had too long a start. Cran
gle could easily have been retired at
two off Wtitesid, three off LakafT and flm KeIlv'B ou a mfnute late
two more off Hofer,
MLAKDEBS TAKE LEAD.
The Islanders scored two men in
the-Tery first round and it looked like
a man thing for them until the sixth
round when the count was tied
through some loose work. Davenport
then drew away ahead and in the
ninth It was 9 to 4 against the Island
er. A desperate batting rally gave
the Islanders three scores and had
either Stevens or Slattery been able
to get a hit. the tally would have
been tied but they both failed and the
Frank Dick opened up on the
mound for Davenport by passing the
first two men. Clynes then dumped
one down the first base line and Kelly
threw wild to third in an effort to stop
Vogel. The result was that both Vo
gel and Hunter scored and Clynes
went to second. Stevens sacrificed
and sent Clynes to third and the latter
ought to have scored on Slattery's
drive to center, but it looked so much
like a hit that he failed to remain on
third and when Ohland stabbed the
ball with one hand, dynes did not
have time to get back to third and
then home befor the ball could be re
turned. MAKE DESTEKATB RAX.LY.
In the third inning Vogel walked
and (Hunter forced him at second but

time to hold Quelsser at third. Hun

hit of the game, a two-sacker Into
right field and two scored. That left
Hunter and Clynes on the circuit and
only one down and the chances were
bright for tying the score, but the
necessary hit was not forthcoming
and the game went by the boards

was both base runners scored when
Chapman hit to center field. LakafT
went into the breach for Rock Island
in the seventh bnt at that stage the
game became a Joke. Nelson who bad
Just taken Dick's place in the box for
Davenport, lived when Custer muffed
a high one in front of the
plate. Finney sacrificed and Koepping
scratched a hit through Kelly who
nevertheless hold Nelson on second.
Ohland hit to left and filled the bases
and two men scored on Bromwich's
hit to center. Crangle hit to LakafC
and Frank threw low to the plate and
Ohland scored. Davenport's Kelly
grounded to Harry Helly and Brom
wich was nipped at the plate. Chap
man rolled a slow one to Vogel and
Otto Juggled it long enough to let the
runner reach first safely. Lakaff put
an end to the inning by striking out

TWO MORE IV EIGHTH.
In the eighth, everybody went wild.
Hofer walked Nelson, Finney scratch
ed a hit, Ohland hit to Hofer and the
youngster nipped Nelson at third. He
then made a balk, however, and
moved the other two runners to third
and second respectively. Ohland
grounded to the Infield and Finney
scored despite en attempt to get him.
Ohland and Koepping made a double
steal while Hofer appeared to be be
wildered. Bromwich skied to Kelly
and Harry , dropped the ball. Ohland
was nipped a minute later at third and
then Stevens dropped Crangle's fly to
center. On an attempted double steal,
Bromwich was caught at the plate and
Baseball Boiled Down
At a meeting Saturday night the di
rectors of the Bloomlngton club voted
to sell their franchise and team, 3 to
2, fixing the price at $5,000. It was
declared that the city ican get along
without baseball this year and that
next year there Is reason to Siope a
place can be found in a new league.
Pitcher Clarke, last year with Wat
erloo, and Pitcher Cook, last year with
Peoria, have been sold by St. Paul to
Topeka In the Western league. Thus
have the mighty tumbled. These two
heavers were cracks In this circuit
last year and went to the Chicago
Cubs, by which they were turned over
to St. PauL
Down at Danville the newspapers
are saying about as mean things
about Dick Klnsella as they are
about M. H. Sexton which is a hope
ful sign. Eventually they may see
the difference between conducting a
clean, open fight for principle and
one in which Intrigue, trickery and
bulldozing are resorted to to sustain
a questionable position.
Bloomlngton Bulletin: Blooming
ton recently acquired the services of
one of the most promising twirlers
in the game, Fred Marks, a big right
hander from Troy Grove, built on
the order of Nunemacher, and re
sembling the big Boston backstop in
many respects. Marks formerly was
on the payroll of the Oalesburg,
Central association, team, but was
suspended by that club for some rea
son or other and was a free agent.
Inflelder Darling and Catcher Morris
were released by the Bloomlngton
association Saturday evening. First
Baseman Denny has been released
and he is negotiating with Hanni
bal Mo., who Is in need of a first
Backer. Outfielder Joyce drew the
blue envelope and he will leave for
his home In St. Louis.

Bragtson FletdJag Bunt, Gets in Way
of Runner and Allows Hits
Augustana was forced to bite the
dust in a hard Itfck contest with the
fast Monmouth college nine at the
Maple city Saturday afternoon, 8 to
0. Up to the sixth Inning it was a
pitchers' battle between Bengtson, the
crack Lutheran twirler, and Schrenk,
Monmouth's lanky slant shooter, the
former not allowing a hit up to that
Inning. As a starter In that fatal
round Bengtson walked two men. The
next man up bunted towards first. The
Augustana pitcher attempted to field
the ball, but in so doing collided with
the Monmouth base runner and was
nearly knocked unconscious in the nix
np. Half stunned he finished the Inn
ing, the Maple city lads making then
their three hits, which, together with
three errors by the local nine, netted
them six runs. Bengtson allowed no
more hits the remainder of the game.

touch the plate In the opinion of the
umpire and when Coleman, coached
by the Davenporters on the bench,
touched Willie, he was called out.
The bitting of Clynes during the ser

nine bingles, one of them for two
sacks and he drove in six runs. Yes
