Great Game on Watson Field
Goes Twelve Innings Be
Before a large Eaater day crowd
the South Side Independents were
handed a 10 to 9 defeat at the hand*
of the Watson baseball outfit, the
contest lasting twelve Innings. The
game was marked by some wonder
ful plays and also heavy hitting. In
the twelfth Inning with two men
down and Powell on third base,!
- Powell stVted for the plate. Ab

him and the winning run was
I Smith started for tho Independ
, onts and lasted a little over an In
ning. Ho was touched for eight
hits and six runs In the time he!
was in the box. C. Long took his
place wllh two men on base in the
second Inning with one man down. I
IA wild peg by Scagnelll allowed an-,
other run In this Inning. Th'-I
stopped the scoring until the last)
of tho ninth when Watson was in
tho rear by the score of 9-7. They
staged a come-back and tied the
score when It seemed like a sure
win for the local boys. Prom then
on the game was a deadlock until
i the fatal twelvth. L. Cong who was
pitching good ball developed a sore
arm and gave way to C. Abbott In
this round. Tho flrBt two men were
easy outs, but .Powell dropped a
nice liner over second for a base,
he stole second and third. With
two strlkea on Murray he started
for home. The ball was played to
the plate but the throw made by
Abbott was a little high and the
' ball rolled off of tho top of Scag
nelll's mitt, giving the Watson team
the game. Murray and Hartley
who pitched for the Watson team
were hit hard but wonderful work
in the field by their teammates
saved them many times when hits
