Colored Team Annexes Double-Head
er, Although Outhit Score3
6-4 and 5-3.
The Indianapolis White Sox, one of
the strong Independent teams, invaded
Northwestern Park Sunday afternoon
only to drop a double-header to the
A. B. C.'s. The story of the first game
goes like this 6 to 4 ; and the refrain
of the second is like this 5 to 2. The
Sox had an awful time losing those
games to the colored team.
In the opener, the A. B. C.'s swatted
the ball for eight safe ones, number
ing among them two three-baggers.
McAllen, of the Sox, flinched, but took
his medicine manfully. Style's men,
strange to say, got twelve hits off Grif
fin, but they were too scattered to
prove of material damage. Bennet
was sent to the slab for the Sox in
the second game and managed to hold
the demon hitters of the A. B. Cs to
three hits and fanned out eight of the
big sluggers. Talbott for the colored
team, was hit safely eight times, but
the Sox could not get their men
around. Luck was somewhat against
the white boys, as two of the three
hits secured against them were home
runs, which together with misplays,
contributed the game to the A. B. C.'s.

So far as the local team is con
cerned there has been no game in
town this week, although three have
been played to the tune of the fol
lowing scores: Monday Giants, G;
New Orleans, 9. Tuesday Giants, 6:
New Orleans, 9. Wednesday Giants,
0; New Orleans, 9.
It will be seen from the socres that
New Orleans is very much, indeed,
stuck on "nine," as they made nine
each day. It is a fact which will al
ways hold good, that the boys must
play good, hard, clean ball if they ex
pect the fans of the old Rock City to
support them. Play better, boys, and
the crowds will be better. Had Rub
ber been calling the game, perhaps the
Giants might have won one at least.
