An unusually large number of Rock
Island people witnessed the game between
the Davenports and Oltumwas at the
Davenport ball park yesterday afternoon,
and took part in the friendly rivalry and
enthusiasm manifested with reference to
the respective teams. Rock Islar.il was
well represented in the field, Sage catch
ing for Davenport and Browner and Zeis
constituting the visitors' battery, while
Baker w&s chosen to umpire the game,
and gave general satisfaction in the fair
ness of his decisions. Everybody knows
that Sage is a king behind tbe bit, while
it is equally gratifying to know that Zjis
is distinguishing himself in the same ca
pacity for Ottumwa, and tbe result of tbe
contest 4 to 3 in favor of the visitors-
shows Browner's work. The Davenports
could make but four hits c-3 him, and be
succeeded in striking out seven of tbe
Davenport. Altogether Rock Island
looked with pirdonable pride upon jester
day s contest, viewing it from any point
of the game.
