yesterday. Dill Neal already had the
record of winning the longest game
in the Ki-inning contest with Cedar
Rapids- .lune 9, but he went his record
fine better in yesterday s game. The
cows were all milked and the even

here and the result was that a score
came in right out of the box. Lander
milk who started the twirling for the
visiters did the brotherly act and al
lowed Berger to get to first while he
was trying out his spit ball. Murphy
was there as usifal with the "neces
sary bunt and Joe went to second.
Then Big Jim jtoled out a double and
Joseph registered at the plate with
the first tally of the contest.
Decatur found Howard invincible up
to the sixth and there was not bin:;
doing for them until then. In the
third round the champs succeeded in
getting another run over the pan
without a single hit. Berger was
given his second transportation, went
to second on a miss throw of the
catcher, reached third on a passed

been taken out after three hits
gathered in off him but Manager Cook
decided it was better to do it la;e than

the tide of battle changed at once.
The champs took heart once more and
in their half of the inning lauded
enough to tie up the score and make

the inning when he passed the first

in Davenport. ' '

third and the back stops will make no
effort to catch hiin fearing that if they
do so he. will get to third during the
Both the three baggers in yester
day's game were the result of a bad
bounce which the ball took about the
time the center fielders thought they
had it trapped. As a result the ball
got through and went to the fence
each lime. . :
Three double plays by the champs
yesterday looks as though they were
stiil able to play some even if they are
within hailing distance of the bottom.
With a little change of luck they will
have to use a long distance telephone
to be heard there.
And may be Billy, Neal hasn't the
control. In 11 innings he did not pass
C! lut a manr ipake a wild pitch. It
will be remembered that he made the
same kind of a recoid in that 1C in
ning game. Howard .was always able
to get them over, also.
Ordinarily Manager Reed is a gen
tlemanly fellow, but yesterday he was
either suffering from the beat or from
Davenportitis ' strong symptoms of
which cropped out also from one or
two spots in the grandstand when De
catur made a spurt in the sixth.
Dowsers was there with the timely
hitting yesterday. Two hits both of
which figured strongly !n the scoring
was bis record. He also made a beau
tiful running catch of a high short lly
in the eighth inning and doubled to
first before the. runner there had even
considered it possible that the ball
would be caught; :
Boucher started yesterday's ;arne be
hind the bat but was forced to retire
in the second inning when he was hit
on his pet finrer with a hot tip foul.
A doctor " as called to dress the finger
and it may keep the ixipular little
catcher out of the game for several
days. The. knuckle was split open
but the doctor nays three days will
heal it up again.
Prout for the visitors was there
with the big stick yesterday. Three
hits and one of them for three sacks
was what he accomplished in the 17
innings. His three bagger came when
no one was oyt and it looked as
though he had a pretty good chance
of scoring but the brilliant fieldina: of
the champs retired the next three men
in order at the initial sack.
Berger played in his best form in
fielding. He had 15 chances many of
them hard ones too and was charged
with a single error. His one handed
stop of, the hot grounder off Hhe stick
of Hoffman in the fourth inning was
he' feature 6f the long game.1 He
scooped it rip while on a dead run to
wards second and fired it to first with-
mt a stop and robbed the Decatur
bird baseman of a hit.
Neal and Eng pulled off a neat one
cn Wagner. It was along in one of
he extra innings, there were two
down, a Commodore on third and Wag
ner at' the bat. Now Wag is a danger
ous man to be pesticating around with
stick, when there are men on base
and if one is laid straight over about
waist high he is liable to knock the
cover off it. But he hasn't much nse
for out curves and the champs' battery
knew his weakness. Neal began to
serve up outshoots and the batter be
gan to foul them. About a dozen tips
slipped off bis bat and every one
went into some part of Eng's anatomy.
He got a biff on the shoulder, one
square in ihe mask that sounded like
knocking a steer in the head with an
ax and several on the feet and shins;
Finally Gus could stand the bombard
ment no longer and he signalled for
one down the groove and it came, as
tlue and pretty as you please. Wag
ner had been watching the ball break
outward so long that he was taken en
tirely off his guard and he felt like 30
cents. In the early part'of the game
it was the straight ones that Howard
was seiving that made the trouble.
