ANNIS GETS AWAY
WITH THE CONTEST
Fred Annla got away with an
other game yesterday, but it was
a pretty tight squeeze. Blame
Thomas waa opposed to him on
the rubber, and the sp^ed-king
pitched some pretty nice ball, in
aplte of the fact that he walked
seven men. Annis was not far be
hind in wildness. He walked four,
had one wild pitch end hit two
batters. He also made a balk that
forced a run over the plate, nut
the hits were few and far between.
Victoria garnered six off Annls,
and the Tigers got to Thomas for
one less. Score, 3 to 2.
The game was a hard one for
Victoria to lose. In the fourth,
after Raynier had been thrown
out at first. Goodman singled to
left and stole second. Then Annls
developed a streak of wildness
that was costly. He hit House
holder and walked Keller, filling
the bags. Spot McMurdo scored
Goodman with a single and Kane
allowed Householder to score on
That settled the scoring until
the seventh, when Annis drew a
walk, after Fisher had fanned.
Bassey singled, but Annis kept
right on to third, and while the
Islanders were trying to toss Annls
out Bassey sneaked to second
Coley hit to Goodman, but Spies
man dropped the peg, and Annls
came in. Rocky followed with a
single, and Johnny trotted home,
tlelng the score. In the next in
ning Abbott was safe at first on
Keller's error, and Eddie Burns
came through with a three-bagger
that won the game. The score:
