They IP* a ball drop between tho pitcher, second baseman and flhortsiop, be- cauafrof poor coaching, which had to j bH scored sis ab.isphit. Their pitcher was wild, giving first to Bix Sterlings on 4 bad balls and hitting Hurquin twice, and he made n wild pitch, but the hits were lacking at the critical times to bring in runs. After one man had been retired 3 Sterlings were presented with lirst base in succession, BO the bases were full, but Pender and Zois could do no better than send up weak (lies', by which the side was retired. The Sterlings undoubtedly had the wrong end of luck all day, both in batting and lieldtng. They showed lack of practice; also it seemed as as though they had no head, for Dowd and Rispin both reached for a high fly and the only wonder was it did not drop between them. Fender pitched good ball, but there were a surprising number of runs earned off of 7 basehita, only two being The wind was high and the cold severe, so few were out; the grand stand was nearly deserted, as the wind had a good sweep through it. There was a noticeable absence of kicking, and the Galesburga made a good impression by their refraining from it several times when they evi dently considered it would have been justifled. Cochrane umpired a good game, and had but few close decisions to make. After receiving a good throw from Zels to stop a steal of third base, Burquin allowed the runner to slide under him; seemed to go to sleep. %>tt 2V.or tn «-!>U !5r>7!-T. iff. n '» c.>,in.--qi unHrin:!; wor I nil Ins liun; mid Mirn;y ii:.(!
