A beautiful 17-inr.lns pitchers battle
between Pug Cavet of the Islanders
and Pitchers Johns and Clarke of Wa
terloo was pulled off yesterday after
noo at Island City park before a largo
concourse of fan3, and in addition to
this, a six-inning game was played in
order to fulfill the promise of the man
agement that there would be a double
header on the strength of which the
admission price for the day was dou
bled. The Islanders won the 17-inning
game by a score of 2 to 1 while Water
loo copped the peanuts in the second
contest by a tally of 4 to 1. That
evened up matters for the day but
none of the fans cared very much for
the loss of the second game after the
first one had been won.
Both Pltchern Good.
Pug Cavet pitched a wonderful game
of . ball, all things considered, but at
that he didn't have much of an edge
on Johns, the southpaw who hurled
them across for the visitors. Pug
lasted the entire 17 rounds while his
chief rival was relieved in the 15th
inning in order to let Hal Chase bat
for him. That necessitated the send
ing of Pitcher Clarke out to the firing
line for the visitors and his measure
was taken and the game ended in the
17th round by a straight poke on the
nosa by one Willie Hunter, who cele
brated in that manner his return tc
the Islander ranks after having been
absent from the first three games.
Waterloo gathered just six measly hits
off Cavet in the entire game and
Johns allowed but eight in the 14
rounds that he lasted. One bingle was

time and trying his hardest. With a
hit needed to win the game he rose
to the emergency and lined one out
Jnto left center, just out of both field
ers' roach and Vogel tore home from
second and the game was won.
The Islanders' first score was made
in the very first inning alter two were
down. Callahan singled and stole sec
ond and Dan O'Leary drove one to the
back fence that landed him on third
and chased Cal home. From then on
until the 17th, the Islanders only
threatened, never quite succeeding in
getting a run over the pan.
Visitors' Run Vnearned.
The one lone run of the visitors
was not earned and as far as Pug
Cavet was concerned, the team was
shut out without a score for the entire
17 sessions. The unearned run came
in the fifth inning. Wakely secured a
walk, went to second on Milsap's out
at first via the Kel'.ey route. With
two down, Harrington drove a hot
grounder to Kohl at short and he had
to go back to the grass to take it.
Hl3 throw to first was a little wide and
it caught Slats off his balance and
got away from him with the result
that Wakely scored before the ball
could be picked up. The next man
ended the Inning by grounding to Vo
gel and the scoring of the visitors
was over for that game. Then came
inning after inning, many of them with
brilliant plays, until the 17th when it
ended. The score:

Islanders Show Strain
in the Second Contest
and Waterloo Wins
The strain of the first game was too
much for the Islanders and they went
to pieces in the first two rounds of the
second game and did not get settled
down until it was too late. Big Bob
Couchman was on the mound and his
work was superb after the second in
ning but it Was all wasted. Waterloo
made one run in the first and in the
second three were added while in the
sixth innings, which played the best
the Islanders could do was to push
one man over the platter. Leard, the
first Booster to come up, was safe
when Eddie Kohl threw wide to first
after accepting a rather difficult
chance. Long sacrificed and moved
Leard to second. Reidy poled one
Into left field and Manusch caught the
fever and let the gall get through him
with the result that Leard scored.
Three In a Jnnch.
In the next the fever got to working
again. Vogel made a brilliant stop
of Wakely's grounder and threw hard
to Slats and the Inlander first Backer
let the throw get away from him. The
runner went to second. Milsap bunted
to Couchman and the twirler picked
it tip and threw in the direction of
first, but Slats intercepted the throw
and it did not get to Vogel, who was
covering the bag. That put two men
on base. Searles grounded to short
and Kohl thre7 Wakely out at the
plate. Then. Chapman secured a hit
through short while Eddie was making
a bluff at covering second , and one
run was counted. Tho visitors' pitcher

was thrown out at seqond by Slattery
when Leard grounded but there were
still two men on the bases and when
Long singled to left both scored.
Reldy followed with a hit and moved
Long to aecond, and the latter stole
third a minute later, but Fremer ended
the inning with an out at first.
Islanders Score Once.
One run was the best the Islanders
could make off Pitcher Chapman. In
the third after Couchman had fanned.
Hunter si igled and Manusch followed
suit. Cailahan grounded to Milsap,
pulling him away from first base and
Chapman ailed to cover the base prop
erly and the bags were full. "O'Leary
drove one to short and Callahan was
thrown out at second while each of
the other men moved up, Hunter scor
ing. Kelley ended the chances with
I a pop to the pitcher, who threw him
1 out at first.
The game was to have gone seven
Innings, but it was so dark when the
sixth was over that the umpire de
cided to call the game. It was then
about 7 o'clock and fully half of the
crowd was still at the park, showing
the quality of the Rock Island faa.

The Islanders simply haven't got
their hitting clothes on yet. When
they do they will make the other
teams in this league hump some to
keep up with them.
Kelly hasn't got his batting clothes
home from the tailor yet, but the fans
know he has a mighty attractive suit
of the latest style, and no one is wor
rying about his inability to hit during
the first few games.
The Twelfth street butchers won
from the South Rock Island gardeners
at Jtns' diamond yesterday afternoon,
the score being 8 to 3. C. Naab and
A. Shaffer made home runs. The
teams lined up as follows:
O'Leary's first offering was a triple,
scoring the first run of the day, and
his second attempt was a double. Af
ter that the Waterloo pitchers showed
the same -7holesome fear which Is ex
hibited in Davenport, and he was walk
ed whenever there was a man on sec
ond who could have scored on a hit.
The feature plays of the first game'
were well distributed among the mem
with St. Joseph in the Western league.
Wolfe went to the southwest to play
winter baseball at the close of the
season of 1908 and refused to report,
to Peoria last season.
The Northern association opens its
season tomorrow. The newspapers
around the circuit are not to be al
lowed to print the schedule till tomor
row and a number of the managers do
not seem to be clear as to where they
will play the opening contest.
A sporting writer, commenting upon
the retirement of Fred Tenney, the
veteran college first baseman of the
Giants, recalls the occasion when Ten
ney got tho ' better of McGraw . when
the former was a beginner. McGraw,
who was playing against him, mistook
him for a soft one and tried to get
his nerve by tramping on his toes and
taunting him. Instead of becoming
frightened, as expected, Tenney took
a large chew of tobacco from his mouth
and smeared It over McGraw's face.

the morning of Memorial day. There
Is no ball game in Rock Island on that

There has been a noticeable revival
of enthusiasm among shooters in this
vicinity lately. New clubs have been
formed at Milan. Sears, Silvis and
other places, while the old clubs are
showing renewed activity. It is the in
tention of the local club to issue in
vitations to all organizations within
a radius of 30 miles and the expecta
tion is that there will be a large num
ber of entries.
IVo More Prises.
Under the old plan of giving prizes
the less skilled members of the local
club found it impossible to win the
prizes in competition with the more
expert marksmen, no system of handi
capping proving effective in equalizing
conditions. This led the beginners to
become discouraged and they discon
tinued attending the meetings. For
this reason it has been decided to
make the shoot general, abolishing
the prizes formerly given.
bers of both teams. A number of hits
were cut down and turned into outs
and the spectators had plenty of ex
citement. Hunter and Vogel were the
especial stars for -the Islanders, and
Long and Fromer, also right field and
second base, respectively, for the vis
itors, were in the lime light in this re
spect. The lack of practice in team work
which resulted from the bad weather
during the latter part of April was
shown in yesterday's game. Man
usch, Kohl and Callanan did the Al
phonse Gaston act in the second in
ning of the second game and Long's
high fly dropped safely in tfceir
midst because none of them wanted
to butt the other two over. That
kind of playing will all come out in
the wash and then the team will get
into gear. .
LOSING OR WINNING
Danville Fans Not the Kind That a
City Must Have to Support
' Minor League Team.
The knockers are working overtime,
at Danville and the newspapers are
doing their best to brace up the fans.
Frank Loug of the Bloomington team
said it reminded him of old times
Thursday when the crowd was much
like that he remembered when Dan
ville was in the Kitty league and a
game was played to 70, including re
porters and bat boys. Nig Lan'gdon,
the Bloomington catcher, added that
he remembered when Danville won 15
games straight and some of the fans
knocked, declaring that things were
"fixed." From the way things are
sharing up the sooner Danville turns
the "franchise back to Decatur the bet
ter it will be for everybody. It takes
stamina, both on the part of the pub
lic and the owners of the team, to
make baseball go in the minor leagues
and it is very evident that Jocannon's
town is wanting somewhere.
