KALAMAZOO WINS.
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.

BAKER THE STAR
Tho Alma baseball team went to Mt.
Pleasant Monday to open the mmsom.
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. Magaw made two phe
nomenal catches in left field and Van
Dyne did good work at the bat.
