Victory for the Cubans—Visitors Played
Great Ball and are Very Quick-Do
Their Coaching in Spanish—Cover
Much Ground in Short Time.
The Marions won again Saturday,
defeating the All Cubans 9 to -1 in a
game that developed lots of excite
ment and some kicking on the part
of the visitors. The game was close
ly contested for eight innings, two
runs only separating the teams at the
conclusion of the eighth. Then the
locals clinched the game by sending
three runs across the pan.
The fielding of the Marions in the
early part of the contest was some
what erratic. After that, however,
the team braced wonderfully and to
ward the close were playing brilliant
ly. MoPhillips pitched a superb game
for the Marions, allowing only five
hits and having the best batters com
pletely at his mercy.
Rosade essayed to pitch for the All
Cubans, but when he became dis
gruntled at a decision of the umpire
in the third inning he was succeeded
by Cabrera, who pitched four innings
and then went Til to relieve Molina
who had to quit work behind the bat
because of a split finger. Padron
pitched the remainder of the game.
The Cabans played excellently during
the early innings, but seemed to lose
heart when the Marions forged ahead.
