Whitehill Is Disgusted Auker's fly broke up an exciting rriitde and sent a Indies' Day crowd of "tout 15.000 home to late dinners with vocai miua r, fr wear. It also sent Karl Whitehill, who went the route .r the Cliffs, stomping from the .('id in disgust. Whitehill thought L hid the game won when he kViit the Tigers from scoring after thev had staged menacing demon-stiVitiona demon-stiVitiona demon-stiVitiona in the ninth, tenth and eleventh innings. The Tigers had to come from M-ird-fnr M-ird-fnr M-ird-fnr M-ird-fnr M-ird-fnr behind twice in order jo achieve their triumph.

Fleii Clifton advanced the Tigah-tiin Tigah-tiin Tigah-tiin to third with a dingle to center and the Griffs called a conference n the mound. Cochrane decided to let Auker bat for himself in the hope that "Lucky Al" would on able to hit a long fly. He was, for he drove one to Stone in front ef the right field bleachers and White raced across the plate like a frichtened antelope. The thirteenth inning was even more exciting than the fourteenth, for 'ho Tigers battled gamely to zt bick on even terms with the Griff after they apparently had the game away.
