After handing Danville three runs
In as many innings yesterday to add
to its total, the Islanders overcame
the lead of the league leaders and
then finished with the big end of
the score in the game at Island City
park. The final score was 8 to 4,
and though it looked rather one sid
ed, the game was close enough all
the way through to furnish excite
ment to the fans who witnessed the
first performance on the home lot in
more than two weeks. A lead of
two runs was secured by the Island
ers in the first inning but was even
ed up in the second by the visitors.
They added another in the third and
made it a quartet, in the fifth. In
that inning, the locals tied the core
and it remained that way till the
eighth when the home tam sent

back to the bench in favor of Pi'eher
Walsh who was even less effective.
Four runs were chased across and
that ended the runs.
COOK FOR ILADEHS.
Joe Cook was on the firing line
for the Islanders and he bad good
control and was effective. With air
tight fielding back of him, the gaine
would have resulted with but one run
for the Speakers. lie kept the nin
gles well scattered and altogether
had Kirwln beaten on the stretch for
honors. The latter iss'jrd six passes,
three of which came in the fifth ii.
ning. Conpled with a hit. and a s--rifice,
they netted two runs for tne
locals. When he walked the first
man up in the eighth and the second
one hit. he was sent to the bench
and Walsh succeeded him. The first
ball Walsh pitched went wild tnd
the nert one was hit into safe ter
ritory and two runs were made. He
was unable to stem the flood of runs
til! four were pushed across.
I F. A II I Flit. ST.
It was in the initial stanza that
the Islanders secured their first pair
ot runs. Uechtold, first man up, beat
out a bunt to Kirwin. Davidson
bunted to Coombs, who threw a wide
one to Staley at first, pulling the first
station guard off of the sack and al
lowing Davidson a life. Wooley so
rJUced the runners along. Slattery
bkied out to left and the prospect3
eeemed dubious. However, Otto Vo
gel came to the rescue with a timely
Dingle and brought in two runs. H)
was caught in an attempt to pilfer
lili the fifth, the Islanders were
powerless and then the flood gat?a
were cpened. Kirwin found it im
losaible to locate the pan and Sny
der, first man up, walked. Gonding
3cr:fi.ed him to second and Cook
and Bechtold walked. Davidson
forced Snyder at the plate. Agaiu
two were down. Lige Wooley was
at the bat. Lige picked out a ni.-e
one and sent the ball out to Ball iu
center field, scoring Cook and Bech
told. Slattery ended the inning by an
out, Siner to Staley.
AM. IP I" K1GHTH.
Every one of the Islanders in the
lineup had a whack at the ball in
the eighth. Slattery was given a
base and Vogel hit out his second
single of the game. Kirwin was
blanketed immediately and Walsh
sent in to finish. He did that all
right, but disastrously. His first ef
fort was wild and Slattery and Vogel
each advanced a base. Kelly hit to
renter and scored both runners. He
himself went to second on Ball a
throw into the diamond. Snyder wis
given a pass and Cording grounded
nit. Cook hit, scoring Kelly end
rending Snyder to third. Bechtold hi

his second single and scored Snyder.
Davidson whiffed and Wooley popped
up to Siner.
The Speakers secured two runs in
the second. Kaylor hit a line drive
to right which was good for two
sacks. After a hard run, Davidson
knocked the ball down, but it was
impossible for him to do more than
stop It from going to the fence. Sta
ley hit to Snyder, who after fumbling
the ball, threw to first In a futile
effort to retire the runner. The
throw was wild and Kaylor scored
while Staley went to second. Sulli
van walked and Hildebrand struck
out. Ingalls hit, scoring Staley.
Kirwin fouled out to Gonding and
Ball skied out to Davidson.
Another run was added in the
third. Siner hit a hot one through
Vcgel and Coombs sacrificed to Slat
tery. In hla effort to make the play
quickly, Slattery overthrew and both
runners were safe. Kaylor bunted
to Kelly and before the third Back
er could pick up the ball, Kaylor
was camping on first. While Staley
was at bat he started for second.
Cook headed him off and in running
him down, threw the ball to Vogel.
Otto chased Kaylor nearly back to
first and in the meanwhile Siner
started for the plate. Vogel threw
the ball out of Gonding's reach and
the run was scored. Staley struck
out and Kaylor was caught in an at
tempt to stal second. The last run
for the visitors in the fifth Inning
was earned. Ball bit to right for
three sacks and scored on Siner's hit
to center. The next three men made
easy outs. The score:

NOTES OF THE GAME

Manager Jack McCarthy was out in
Cook pitched a good, heady, steady
game, and deserved the victory.
Bechtcld had two hits and was rob
bed of the third bv a good catch bv
Kirwin, according to the last official
averages, is the leading twirler of the
league; so the victory was doubly sat
isfying. Vogel had a perfect batting record
with two hits and two walks in four
times up. Both hits aided in the run
Wooley was another timely hitter,
his bingle bringing the two runs which
sewed up the score. His. work in the
field was fast. too.
