E. Frazier. The opposing batteries were Buesher and Holland for Orofino, and Moffit and Renshaw for Kamiah. The game resulted in a complete shut-out for Kamiah, the score standing Orofino 9, Kamiah 0. The features of the game were the splendid work of Buesecher in the box, allowing but two hits in the game, and the slugging propensities of the home team, Hardy, Kinne, K. Mer rill and S. Buescher getting two bag gers. Two games are scheduled for Satur day and Sunday. The Teddy Bears will play Russell on Saturday and Ah sahka on Sunday. SUNDAY'S GAME Sunday's Game between Orofino and Kooskia was won by Orofino witli a score of 9 to 7. The .game was noted for the heavy hitting of both teams. In this regard . the Kooskia pitcher, Gross, fared worse than Jewell, his opponent, who was-fairly effective at times. This game had additional inter est from the fact that Orofino was de feated by Kamiah on the home grounds in the opening game of the season; later Kooskia defeated Kamiah, and the victory of Sunday shows the boys are striking a winning gate and may al ready be heralded as coming champi ons of the Clearwater league this season. One of the largest crowds of the season witnessed the game.
