Quite an interesting and close ball
game was played at Greensburg sf
Sh fthday the 10 h inst between Buck
nersviHe and Gresham local base ball
teams While the Bucknersville boys
claim a victory of 6 to 4 we beg leave
to differ since the umpire was a citizen
of the BucknersviUe vicinity and his
partiality to them could be plainly seen
by all present He did not only give
them all the close decisions but also a
couple that were wholly inconcistant
coth
this being the only thing that put them 1
in the lead Our boys all did excellent
playing but the leading feature
throughout the game was the pitching
by Johnston who won the admirationj
of all He certainly held the Buckners
ville boys down nicely hes a little
too stiff for them they cant quite hit
that twirland they can no longer
boast of having players who never tan
for their first six men were put out in
that way and the total number of fanrfj
ning and striking out was 19 times t
Doesnt that seem like Johnston knows
his business c

was ours although the umpire decided I
