Unltiiuorc Wins the Third Straight tJnme in the Temple Cup Series. Baltimore, Oct. C The chances for the Temple cub resting in Bnltlmore this winter are bright. Today the third game of the series with the Cleveland team, and last one to be played In Bal timore, went to the home team by the score of fi to 2. The champions need but one more game to capture the elu sive llagon. Cnless the Spiders put tip a better article of ball on their home grounds than they have presented here the Orioles are likely to make it four straight. Not that the westerners have not played good, fast ball, but the east ern boys are at their best, and for the first time In a Temple cup series, have been aide to give their opponents pitch ing of the very highest class, while Young and Cuppy have both been out of condition. The teams will continue the series In Cleveland on Wednesday, Frldny and Saturday, provided, of course, the Ortolan d not win and thus end the centest. Should a seventh game be necessary to decide the winner, It will most likely be played In Pittsburg. Score: BALTIMORE. A.B. R. H. P.O. A. K.
