Rocky Mount and Henderson Murdered by 3 R’s
HardfightingRoanokeRapids-Rosemary Team badly beats Weldon and Rocky Mount Shops, while Henderson is Licked Two out of Three. Dempster, Sanderson and Joy ner compose a pitching staff which opponents find dif ficult to solve. Local swatters fatten their batting averages off visiting twirlers. TP1PPLE AS PLAY TRIPEE RS SATURDAY WEEK. The local aggregation completely ontclassed everything it met this week. One bad day in Henderson is the only blot on the slate. That 34 to 0 kiilng administered to the Rocky Mount 3hops was absolutely funny. This team had a big record of thirteen wins to one defeat. The3 JR boys made the players, as well as the record, look sheepsh. About five hundred people went out to Rosemary I’ark Tues day afernoon expecting to see a hard tight game. The Rocky Mount Shops team brought with it a record of thirteen wins, one tie. and one defeat. They played Aulander nineteen innings on the Fourth, beating them by a close score. But the sad part of it all is that their record was all that they brought. All their baseball abili ty was either expended during the previous contests, or left safely behind in the shops at Rocky Mount. The Triple R's did not beat them, they slaughtered them. For eight and ose half in nings the R.R.R crew played merry-go-round, with three Rocky Mount tossers acting as the donkeys. Beale started off for the Shopmen, but thirteen runs and twelve hits in five frames was more than he could stand, and he retired to the show ers in the fifth. Griffin then es sayed forth to stop the avalanche' of Triple R hits. The lot of this unlucky chap was even worse than that of his predecessor. He gave up the ghost after two in nings of murder, in which the Roanoke Rapids-Rosemary slug gers fattened their averages to the extent of fourteen hits and eighteen runs. Cobb was the next on the program In his canto the sluggers annexed four hits and three runs. The Rocky Mount infield was afflicted with the same malady that infested the tossers. “Touchdown” Jones and Bryan were the chief offenders in the error column. Jones began the game by pulling off three snappy assists, but as the rest of the team weakened, he went down with them. Every member of the Triple R machine, including the subs., slapped out at least one bingle during the afternoon storm of hits. Pee Wee Turner and Jeff Johnson strutted their stuff by getting five hits a piece. Pee Wee's five were made up of three singles, a double, and a home run. The team average was three hits apiece. John Dempster made the Shop men look sick. He took things easy and then permitted them only three bingles in six sides. Joyner and Edmondson went in at the beginning of the seventh. It was thought that this battery might lighten up a little and give the visitors a chance to show their offensive ability, but there was nothing doing, Joyner sent the first three men to face him back to the bench after three swings in the air. Only ten men faced him and lix of them whiffed. Edmundson was right in there behind the bat, and held Joyner like a veteran. EVIDENCE OF MURDER R. M.

Shops: 000 000 0 0 0 0 < Triple R: 303 077 11 3 x 34 i knowledge of the finer points of basetiall was the margin by which Bill Towe’s Triple R team beat the Weldon nine for the third straight time, and made it four out of five games played. The canny ability of Smith, Towe, and t'orrell to lay down perfect bunts, and then beat them out, plus Spikes two bagger; was the, signal for the fall of Weldon in the eleventh canto of a hard' fought and well played game. R. R. R began the song in the I third stanza. Towe was safe at first as a result of a discord by A1 Johnson. Bob Correll joined in with him on the chorus, his’ Peep double harmonizing perfect ly in the melody. J, D. Johnson had too good a voice to be left out, so he helped Bob end the stanza by sending out a high note tor a clear su.gle. I The Weldon Trio, composed of Messrs. Minter, Butler, and Wood, gave an exibition of their talent in "Three Extra Base Hits”. Their supporters applaud ed the selection very riotoulsy, and repeatedly called for an en core. But none was forth coming. Professor Sanderson was mas ter of ceremonies. He showed his displeasure at the selection of the Weldon Trio, by decreeing that they keep silent during the; remainder of the exercises. The only breach of this command was made by Red Butler in the mid ’ die of the eighth stanza. He came j to an easy note and sang out for j a single. He stole the next line ! when the Professor was not look-1 ; ing, but got caught when he mis ! read the music, and failed to har monize with Pee Wee’s tenor. For the remaining contos Prof. Sanderson endeavored to teach the Weldonites a familiar march; the same as he directed on the morning of the Fourth of July, "March To The Bat And Back To The Berch”. Weldon learned fast and executed the march with per fect time. Shields tried to direct the same march on the R.R.R glee club, when it went on the stage, but met with miser able success. In stead of following Shield’s in-1 structions, the Triple R boys lus-1 tilysang “Merrily, Merrily, We' Go Around”. They sang five verses of thi3 popular hit to the delight of the Triple R. Suppor ters. Weldon was listed for the last number on the program, but the strength of lhe R.R.R, orchestra, which was playing the accom paniment, overshadowed their weak voices and they went un heard. Thus endeth the song of the baseball game. R. R. R. a b r h p o a e Smith, 2b. 6 117 5 1 Towe. 3b. 6 2 112 0 Correll, cf. 5 2 2 2 0 0 Spikes, If. 6 1 2 2 0 0' Johnson, J.
