LOCALS LOSE GAME IN ANDERSON THURSDAY Electricians Knock Two Abbeville Pitchers out of Box and Win Game 11 to 4. The account of the ball game in Anderson yesterday is taken from The Tribune: A desperate ninth inning rally by Abbeville here yesterday afternoon failed to break down the long lead Rlpptrieians had Diled ud and the visitors took their medicine, 11 to 4. Abbeville scored once in the first frame, when an error at the Anderson third sack let Ervvin race in, but were unable to duplicate the feat until in the ninth when they ad ded an insufficient trio of scores to their single of the first game. The hitting barrage of the locals which set in early in the game and continued throughout was the trick that turned things against the vis itors. A total of 14 hits were chalked up during the game, four of which were doubles and one a triple. The slugging got Milan's goat in the first inning and only in this portion of the eame was he allowed to try out his "ins" and "outs" on the Anderson batsmen. In the second inning Allen was sent to the mound and lasted through the fourth, when E. Gallo way took up his position on the mound to stay during the remainder of the game. A heavy shower just before the game made impossible a double head er between the two teams, which was to have begun at 3:30 o'clock. The decision was at once made to play but one game and it began around 4 o'clock. However, the field was,wet throughout the game and soggy balls, slick bats and a nasty, dirty slow field greatly impeded the players dur incr thp rnntpst. fair thouerh. for both The usual number of men were walk ed as a result of the work of Jupe Pluvitfs.
