DOUGLAS'VICTORY
GIVES HER LEAD
Douglas-Tread well. 5; Gnstlnea\i-Jn
?neau, 1; is the story of tho baseball
game yesterday at Rocreatlon park,
making the sorles stand four games
to three in favor of the Douglas-Troad
well aggregation.
A large crowd of fans witnessed tho
game yesterday and a more perfect
day could be asked for.
In the first threo innings, it wub a
one, two, three record for Ford, not
n Douglas man reaching first. Catch
er Duggan the second man to bat was
hit on the right arm by a pitched ball,]
rendering that arm almost useless.|
For the remainder of tho game Dug
gan could not throw to second, a cir
cumstance that counted materially in
Juneau's defeat.
Wurth. one of Juneau's hardest hit
ters, who covers wide territory in the
right field, was put out of the game
early when runulng into first base, and
further crippling the local team.
Juneau made her one run in the
second, Molloy, second up, singled, and
was advanced to third when Smith hit
through second base: Ford got a base
on bails, advancing Smith to second,
and the bases were full; Wright sin
I gled, scoring Molloy, bases full again.
! Pittman pulled himself out of a tight
I place, Duggan flying out and Hester
fanning.
In the first half of the fourth. Kalal
walked and stole second. Kerry went
out to first and Kalal scored when
Kertls sent a hot one through second
base. Wood and Mensor both flyed
out to center.
Ford struck out five men In the fifth
and sixth innings.
The next scoring was in the seventh.
Kertis got first on Hester's error, stole
second. Wood struck out and Mensor
got to first on Ford's fumbling a short
grounder. Kertis taking third: Mensor
was caught ofT the base: Kertis scor
ed on a passed ball by Duggan: Red
mond was given a base on balls, stole
second and advanced to third on Dug
gan's error. Dahl was given a base
on balls but Mauseth struck out re
tiring side. In the ninth Wood, first
up. got a homo run. Through hitting
and errors Douglas got two more runs
making five runs altogether.
In the last three innings Juneau did
not get a man to second base.
Ford pitched a remarkable game,
striking out 15 men. Manager Wulzen
had no man to replace Duggan, whose
sore arm was a serious handicap, not
withstanding the sportsmanlike con
duct of Douglas players in refusing to
steal bases except where the play
called for a steal.
Pittman also pitched a splendid
game, allowing only three hits, and
striking out eight men.
The official record tolls the story:
Gastlneau-Juneau.

the idnn whose [dead body was dlscov- I
ered floating Jnftho Fifty mile river in t

the result of a drunken quarrel, and
his body carried out on the river near
