Rltzvillc Has 1,000 Per Cent, Taking Two More Last Saturday and Sunday. It was Spence Irbjf who clouted a nice clean two-bagger in the last half of the ninth inning, after two men were down, in last Saturday's game, bringing in 1 Halvorson and the winning run by a score of 1 too. Up to thai inning neitli er side had been able to get a runner across home plate. It had been eight innings of hair-raising plays on both sides, and it looked like a complete shut out. Rush was in the box for the Spokane High school, with a giltedged delivery ot the tioods. Montgomery for the locals pitched good ball, and was given errorless sup port, It was the fastest and best game ever played on the local diamond. The crowd was not very large, but made up in en thusiasm what they lacked in numbers. The summary was as follows: Two base hits, Samuels, Irby. Walked, by Montgomery, 1; by Rush. 2 Struck out, by Montgomery, 5; by Rush, 8. Umpire, Frank llalliday. SUNDAY'S GAME A cold, taw wind was blowing Sunday afternoon, which made fust ball playing an impossibility, but it did not keep a large bunch of fans out of the grand stand or off the bleachers who were there to assist the home team in winning iheir fifth successful victory. This time it was Voss's Specials of Spo kane, who lost the game 8 to 3. The steady work of the locals was too much for the Spokane aggregation.
