Dwrp McQull tan. mound muter, came wnnia an ace of abutting out the rox with nary a bit or run yesterday afternoon a t Douglas park because the long arm of circumstance pulled a bat tery error of omission that opened the gate for Rock ford ' Mcquillan. fint and only ran of the 10-lnnlng sscouster that the Islanders can tarned, 8-1. McQuillan, for seven Innings, had lata pitching with Invincible change of pace; mowing down the Box almost aa soon aa they stepped to the plate. Too many pltebout for Urine in the third gave the Rox aatflelder the only free ducat George issued during the day. A aurlfice hit put the runner on tmnd. where be perished wheh tie aide waa retired. Leyme wis lie only Rox batter to get on baae aatll the eighth. Fluke Snofla Fame. " The big Islander pitching ace lost i Vis chance to enter the ball of basi' a tame with Catcher Rigeby, first to feat In the eighth. Before, the flake, Rigsby had two strikes and a ball. He bad awung wild at the second strike. In- bis first attempt la the second inning he had been ta easy victim. In the eighth it looked as If George would fan him Rigsby swung wild and missed a tut one on the outside. There had keen an error of omission between BcQuillan and Dixon as to the pitch. Somehow, Dixon was crossed if. The ball slipped through his kinds, striking bis right abinguard ltd rolling into the diamond. Be fore McQuillan could field it, Rlgs ky had reached flrat base.

Kid Hauk, the ftppery nox mira sacaer, cnoppea s long drive that too hard hit for Hubert Dennis, to get under and the ball rolled to the fence in left cen- f jM tor a double, Rigsby scoring the 'Rox' one and only run. Things looked glum when Leyme smacked a single to left that aent Hauk to third, but the aspect brightened when Foelsch hit into a double play, Benson to Murphy to Olockaon. It was Benson's agility that made the pity possible. With the exception of the fifth, when the Islanders touched Lefty Anderson for stuff enough t break the scoreless Ice, the Rox pitcher kid them eating from his hand. The core might have been different bad Anderson displayed a change of pace. v What Might Have Bees, Lefty had been slow-balling the Islanders to death; moreover, with excellent control. If the Athletics cut-off had mixed his alow ball with a good fast one, the Islanders might have been helpless, despite McQuillan's grand work in the box. Hubert Dennis, playing in left field, carried away the batting hon- J ors tor the day, getting three hits, j lacludlnc a trinla. in tour trios. 1 Dennis also scored both runs.
