The Conricts met a crushing defeat at
Twin City prk yesterday ia the presence
of 2,500 people. It ?as expected that
Cunningham would be here in time to
pitch the game, r ut he did not arrive and
Bartsoa was put in and held the boys
from Ccnriciown down to four little
Aits, all of which were secured after the
'fifth inning and two of the four were
made by Fisher. Willis was in the box
lor the visitors, but he was far from be
ing an enigma. They fell on
aim and batted out their game in the
J ret inning, running in five scores which
the visitors were unable to tven tie. The
fame was not characterized by any very
brilliant features. Sce retired the visi
tors in the first inning by catching three
men at second which cooled their ardor
for stealing bases considerably.
A new face in the outer garden made
its appearance yesterday, being that of
"Ducky" Ffcmp who pulled down some
likely base hits and did good work with
the stick. You can gain more informa
tion from the following score:
