A. Smith. Mfg. ('o. team for first .forcing Marten oft to be tagged out, a place, making a play-off necessary which ,will take- place next saturuay auernoou. Burke entered the hall of fame as an iron man, pitching both games, a feat which no local league pitcher has at tempted during the league schedule. "While he was not so successful in fan nings the would-be hitters in the second contest he held them to fewer hits, allow ing only five against eight' in the first contest. His work in the fourth inning of the first game was exceptionally fine, after the first three hitters had singled, scoring one run. With two on and none out Burke fanned the next three batters, pulling out of a bad situation and without doubt saving the game, for a hit or pos sibly an infield out would have brought in the tying run. Fort Dummer had plenty of chances to win both games, but lost out by poor base running and feeble stick work. Both teams played ragged ball at times, but the Soldiers' misplays were not so expensive, nor did they come at such crit ical times as did those of the Cottons. The first game, while it consumed only an hour and 1.1 minutes, was without marked interest, in spite of the close score. J. he second game started witn a little more pep and had prospects of be ing more to the liking of the fans, but the misplays of the Cottons gave the Soldiers enough runs early in the game to make a win reasonably sure. Brouilette, not to be considered a hit ter, was given a liberal portion of passes, walking to first five times out, of seven times up, fanning once and offering a weak roller to Graves at third the other time. Whitney furnished the noise with the stick, getting four with a total of five in seven tries. finished up the job by attempting to go t3 third while Burke held the ball, bavingTgtfmes tVsLouis. Thus th. Yanks lost the half 4 ttgume that they gained Saturday and ifv-l, itivrii BU vft viic uu wnv m made no offer to pitch. Fort Dummer's second and last tally came in the sixth. Graves got a life on Manning's error, stole second and went to third on Sheehan's out at first. Austin lifted a fly to left field and Graves beat the throw to the plate. W. Urus scratched a single in the sev enth after two were down and stole sec ond but was nailed, Miner to Stowell, trying to make third. The scores: COMPANY I.

Burke scratched a sin gle through second but was forced on Brouilette's roller to Graves. Brouilette Jiad no difficulty in stealing second and third on Wissell, whose action in throw ing was slow, which with a weak whip made base stealing an easy proposition throughout both games.

Dunlevy Aeeepts 11 Out of 13 Chances at Second Visitors Maka Promising Opening. Under very unfavorable weather condi tions the Brattleboro Athletics played their scheduled game with the Crescents of Keene yesterday afternoon and de fatd thm 6 to 2. The Athletics' Jonah, rain, started in about its usual time, killing off their chances of drawing big, although in spite of lowering clouds and light rain a small crowd turned out. The weather deadened the teams' pep, the ball and the fans' enthusiasm, making the contest sort of a listlesa affair. The Crescents, from what they showed the local fans, could hardly expect them to believe that they have even a chance with the Keene White Sox, whom they said they were able to defeat. It was hardly to be expected that any team could produce real baseball with a wet ball, but the locals were under the same handicap and played i good game while the visitors turned in seven luscious errors, playing like sand lottcrs in the very first inning, making the lo cals a present of two runs without the semblance of a hit. Adams as usual was given great sup port by his teammates. Only one of the four niiscues made by them had any bearing on the runs scored by the visit ors. F. Duulevy at second had an ex ceptionally busy day having 13 chances, 11 of which he accepted. His two slips came on the fielding of tdow, teasing rooters, with very little time to complete the plays in sight. Taylor and Kennedy, turned in pretty catches or Hy balls. 'I he former s was a foul which made the third out in the sixth with two on at the time-nd was plucked with one hand well back of firstr just iu front of an auto. Kennedy s catch came in the fourth with runners on first and second. The hit looked to be a per fect Texas leaguer, but he timed the play to perfection, making a swell one-handed catch, doubling the runner at second, who had every reason to believe that the catch would never be made. , While the lads from Keene as a whole played a poor game two members of the team helped to furnish something in the way of a feature. Woods in the sixth made a neat play off Austin, gathering in his foul fly, pil ing into the sideline rope but retaining his hold on the ball, Metevier supplied the other with his kitting, getting two singles and a double in three trips to the plate. ( v Keene made a very promising open ing. Metevier led off with a double be tween left and center. Sebastian rolled one to Taylor for an out, holding the runner on second. , Cook hit to B. Dun levy, who played the ball to Yarker. After chasing the runner bffck towards second a throw to F. Dunlevy completed the out. Cook made tliird when the throw to get him stealing wcond went wrong, but he- pulled a boner when Knox M-glcd to right. He waited to see if Plumb would make the catch, then loafed home.: Knox tried to make third on the fielding of his hit but was thrown out, 'LHuinb to Yarker, and the run which Cook should have registered did not count as by loahng on the way home he did not reach the plate, until after the runner was retired at third. 1 Brattleboro got two runs in first with out a single hit. After two were out Kennedy got a. life on short s error. ar ker hit one down third base that Woods spilled, Kennedy taking third and Yar ker second. Taylor drew a free ticket, filling the cushions. B. Dunlevy hit to third and the ball was played home to get Kennedy, but the catcher made no apparent attempt cituer co roucu cue runner or the nlate. Plumb hit down third base, the ball' bouncing off Wom1's shins, and for a second was lost by htni, Yarker scoring. (Mune ended the inning by grounding to Kiwx.' . ' i : .V . , , il. 1 ne locals auuei one in ine sreuua on Austin's single with one down, F. Dun levy's out at first and Kennedy's single. The Crescents got a runner as far as third in the third frame, but on an at temnted steal home was tagged out. and their hopes were squelched in the fourth when Kennedy started the double piay already referred to. Brattleboro threatened in the fourth and fifth but did not tally again until the sixth. Adams scratched a hit through the niteherV box. Woods made his catch off Austin, but t . lunievy walked, iven-1 nedy fanned. Yarker lined one out two hacks, scoring Adams, and on the second baseman's wild heave home F. Dunlevy also scored. Keene broke . into the scoring m the seventh. Reason led off with a single. Robbins hit a slow roller to F. Dunlevy, who in his haste to pick up and throw missed. The visitors khen begaii the bunting game. Woods laid one down which Adams could not get hold of. and the sacks were full. Punt, pinch hitting for "-lamella also dumped one down third base that "Yarker shot home for an out. Metevier spilled the beans by lacing one over second that scored two. Punt was left on as Taylor took care of the next two batters. Punt went in' to pitch for Keene in the seventh and got away without a score, but the eighth was different. Austin led off with a single, stole second and third, scoring when Reason's throw to third went into the field. F. Dunlevy fanned. Kennedv singled and Yarker followed suit. Taylor hit one to right that Rob bins came in fast for and in attempting a one-handed catch near the ground missed, but Yarker was thrown out at second, having held up on the play as it did look like an out for Robbins.
