JTJIIIS w v- y VOL. XXVI HUNTINGTON LOSES BY 11 TO 10 After Giving Huntington n Ind of fv Three Huns Ontario Tics Score In Second Inning lUnck- aby's Pitching il Cask dny's Batting Features After seeing Huntington take her first bat and run In three scores at the cost of Ontario player's errors, a victory looked gloomy for the locals last Sunday afternoon at the falr , vrounds. Only In tho first inning, however, -were errors on Ontario's part extremely expensive, and good playing prevailed throughout the remainder of the game. Tho locals apparently had on their batting tegs, for time after time they sent the horschtde pill through tho atmosphere for many, safe hits, for in the first Inning Caslday, '-who was tho first batter up, connected with one and made a pretty two-base hit over the second baseman's head. Husted fanned and Gardner then came to bat and made another hit which sent Casl day to third; Guernsey fanned and then Wells came in contact with a hot one which resulted in a three bagger, sending Caslday and Gard ner home. This ended Ontario's scoring In the first inning, but in the second Blackaby succeeded in running In another which tied the score. In the third three more runs were chalked up to the locals' cre dit, which placed them safely in the lead, and they remained there for the remainder of the game. The big feature ofthe game was Bill Blackaby's pitching; proof of this can be found in the fact that he whiffed out eleven men, and in the second inning, unassisted, put out , three men In a row. Despite Black aby's hard work.which he manifest ed throughout the game he walked only three men and made only one error, which resulted In Hunting ton gaining gaining two scores. Another feature of the gamo was the batting ability that Caslday dis played throughout he entire game. Only once did he fall to get a hit during the game, and that was In the last inning when he knocked an infield grounder to short stop and was nailed on first. Taking the gamo as a whole, it was a good one, filled with many exciting plays and- pretty work of both teams MANY NEW BUILDINGS BEING ERECTED HERE Ontario Is having a material in crease In residence buildings, which activity began several weeks ago "and has continued up to the present time, with indications that it will bo continued through the summer.
