Alma Boys Put Up a Hard Fight A Series of Bau Errors In the First Two Innings Lost the Game. Alma 0 0 0 1 1 0 5 0 2 ! Kalamazoo i " 1 1 0 0 0 0 112 Witli fair weather and a disgracefully small crowd the Alma team met the Kalamazoo team Wednesday afternoon at the race trace. Alma was given her outs and owing to the rank errors made on third and at short Kalamazoo secured four runs in the first inning and five in tho second. Alma was shut out the first three in nings but in tho fourth and fifth secured two runs. Kalamazoo found stronger opposition after the first and second, obtaining oidy two runs in the third and fourth. The home team had by this time begun to play ball. Case took third base and Baker retired from the game, ivaiamazoo was given iour snui outs m succession, securing only one run in the ninth. The sixth Alma did not score but in the seventh by hard batting and good base running she secured five. The eighth was a shut out and in the ninth two runs left the score !) to 12 in favor of Kazoo. Pangboum pitched an almost faultless ame for Alma and there is little doubt if he had had proper support that he would have won tho game. His home run strike in the fourth inning was the only one of the game. Kincli held his place behind tho bat with his old time ability and did good work with the stick. All the other Alma players did good work with few exceptions. Caso's work on third is well worthy of mention. The Kazoo's put up u very poor game for state league players. Alma made twelve clean hits and Kazoo only ten. Errors: Alma 11, Kazoo 7. Left on bases: Alma 12 Kazoo 10. A number of double plays were made by both sides. Robinson acted as umpire greatly to the satisfaction of those interested. His judgment ami decisions were good. Later in tin- season Alma will be able to defeat the team without a doubt.

Tho weather was fine and a large crowd greeted them as they scattered them selves over the diamond. Misfortune greeted the Alma boys as the third ball passed over tho plate when Catcher Misamore had his hand badly hurt and was forced to leave his place. McAdams took the place and caught the game in a highly creditable manner. Thomas, the Alma pitcher, was also injured just before the game in throwing for practice and took 1 laker's placo in center field, llaker's work in the box was excellent, many of Mt. Peasant's best batters being struek out. All the boys put up a good game con sidering the small amount of practice they have had.
