About 200 spectators attended the
Tin-City par je&terda? when the home
team dropped another game to the LToosier
hustler. It was a cold miserable day to
play ball, but the fan are anxious to see
ball an4 will wear ulsters to do it. Yes
terday's game, thoujli played under dis
advaotages, was a fair game of ball up to
the serenth inning wben Nulton muffed
a pretty pop up, and it wag plainly visi
ble that the home boyi then loet their
heads for a few moments. The visitors
had Collins in the box and Briggi as back
stop, and Browner and Sage composed
the home battery .
Collins, who notwithstanding the Con
di ion of the atmosphere, had almost per
fect control or the hull and struck out 14
men. Brow ner on lb.' other hand struck
out but two, and wh le tbe visitors got
but nye safe hits iS him and he managed
to keep a good many from scoriog who
hsd got to base, yet the visitors had no
trouble in finding tbe ball, and hsd it not
been fot the support given him in the
field, the score would do doubt have pre
sented a very different appearance. Tbe
Iloosiers got their first score in the
fourth inning. Wentz hit a grounder to
Nulton who threw the runner out at first.
McQ itry hit to left field and got to first.
Morarity got hit base on balls and Briggs
touched a grounder down to Nulton w ho
fumbled it for a moment, but recovered
himself "In time to catch McQuery
at third, thereby saving himself an error.
Morrison then got a grounder out
past Lynch, who was playing far out of
his position, and Moriarity scored. No
more scores were made until the seventh
inning, wben the calamity befell tbe
home team. ' Higgics hsd flew out to
Lynch, Collins Lit to left field, reaching
first and got to second onO'Rourke's base
on balls. Kutz had fas out to O'Day
wben Wentz popped up a little fly to
Nation. wh- then bad a chance to retire
tbe side, but at this critical point be let
the bail slide through his hands and Col
lins reached third. McQuery rapped it
oyer the light field fence to two bases a.id
Collins and O'Rourke scored. Moriarity
got to first by being bit by a pitched ball
agnin MUing tbe bases, when Briggs put
another corker over the right field fence
for a Lome tun, enssieg three big scores
ahead of him, which gave the men from
Indiana their seven runs. The home
team managed to avoid a shut out In the
ninth inning by O'Day's hit to left and
reaching secoad, and Nulton getting to
base on balls and reaching second on a
psssed ball, when Dale cracked the
sphere oat to centre, allowing O'Day and
Nulton to score, tbe aide being retired by
Hoffman flying out to O Rourke.
One of the weak points of the team is
its batting, but Mana er Sage is of
the opinion that it will come later on. It,
of course, is a fact that the batting
in all other leagues has been compara
alively light so far this season, and some
of the best base ball heads in the country
have attributed It to the cold weather, but
the I-I league this season has faster men
in tbe box than ever before, and Aif our
team wants to be in the push it must
soon beginto play winningball.
The score of yesterday's game is appended.

THIS MORNING'S GAME.
The postponed game with Evansville
was played on at Twin-City park this
morning. It was attended by about the
same sized crowd that was present at
yesterday's game, and rerulted in a for
feited game to the home team by a score
of S to 0. Bartaon A Zeis was the home
team battery, and Callighan and Brigea
did the work for the Hoosiera up to the
fourth inning when Collins was substi
tuted. At the end of the fourth inning
the score stood 4 to 8 in fayor of the
home dub, when Umpire Suggs in at
tempting to get oat of the way of a ball
tripped and fell in such a manner as to
badly sprain bis right ankle. Housman,
who was released this morning was
put in as usnpire, and after
a big roar had been made by tbe visitor
in regard to one of his decisions, he re
fused to umpire and Jimmy tVivill, who
is one of the regularly appointed league
subsUtues, went on the field. The boys
from Hoosierdpom got it into their heads
that they were - not being treated right
and refused to go on the field. Umpire
Wivill than gave them five minutes to
play ball, and not having complied with
his request he declared the game forfeited
to Rock Island-Molina by a score of 9 to
0. The following is tbe score:

If. as Manager 8age says, its hard luck
that keeps the home team from winni eg
more games, then it must have been hard
luck that kept Evansville from getting
at least six more safe hit off the snap
that Browner gave them yesterday.
