VOLUME XX HAMILTON, MONTANA, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 15, 1910. NUMBER 35 MISSOULA GIANTS BITE THE DUST Big Fellows Led to the Slaugh ter Despite Efforts of Their League Pitcher. Aided by imported talent, the Mis soula Giants went to the dust before Hammond's unbeaten machine Sun day by the score of 8 to 2. Only at the end of the first inning', when the score was 2 to 2, were the oft-touted invaders in the counting. The ascen sion occured in the seventh. Gebeau, pitching for the locals, worked his puzzles effectively. Kusel, a released leaguer from Vancouver, sifted for the Giants and it was not his fault the visitors were trodden on. He repeatedly pitched himself out of tight places, but these were readily supplied, as spills were frequent in the field. Bonner which also defeated the Mis soula Giants, will play on the local grounds next Sunday. Score by Innings. Hamilton........2 0100041*—8 Missonla.........2 00000000 —2 Kusel.
