COVINA GRABS ANOTHER. Forney's 8anta • Monica Stars Get Drubbing in Fierce Ball Game. Covina, 11; Santa Monira, 7. The largest rrowd of loathnr-lnng- ed fans that, ever got hohind a team In Covina and pulled for a victory, WHB present last Sunday afternoon to nee the renowned Santa Monioaris go down to defeat, In an aggresnlve nine inning struggle. After Covina had copped three extra ones In the eighth just for the fun of ft, Jim Forney passed the sign to his crack twlrler, Uussell, and accepted the Inevitable Tt was a very crestfallen bunch of play- r.'.rn that left, for the beach town with (heir noisy following of feminine rooters. A big feature of the game was the snap and determination that the home boys displayed. Several times In the past umpires have handed out Irn- possible decisions that figured to win the game, and the team would take if. without a peep. In the second Inning Sunday Kewarts was hit by a ball that he swung at, and when the umpire called him safe such a roar went up thfil be thought better of It, and changed his mind. A little aggression !« ?".fid In Its place, but It Is customary (o have just one man to do the talking. Fairly and Russell were both landed on for fourteen hits each; neither Issued a walk, but the visiting heaver had the bent, of the strikeout business. Forney, up first, landed for a three-bagger, and scored on Marmie/'s fielder's choice.. I'cte was decidedly off-color wit.ii the club and managed to fan throe times. Church was safe on nn error however, and I'ing got a good ninglo. Stewart was Haft! on a. bounder over pitcher, f'hiircb scoring. Doc laid a. low one to short that scored Ping. Russell Haw himself slipping bad in lite second when Agiiayo laid a niow one to third and beat it to the keystone sack a mile; then Church got a neat single, while Ping, to prolong the •torture, Inpalcd him for a Bi///,ler through second. With two runs added in this round; the third looked like a good time to hop onto about four more. Doc Kalrly took a lively poke that luckily for the Sand Crabs was jtiBt a single, got first on an error, Shirley and Kendall landed, and a moment later Church smashed out a long drive. The homo town rooters Indulged In a prolonged howl of delight, but Ping was duo for something. The boachors must have thought they were pulling off a life-saving «v«t the way they lean ed against tho Spauldlng In the fifth Forney was up with his Inevitable sin glc to left, Manquoz was aafo on Church's error, Garcia singled, then big Vogar was homesick and got a tre mentions clout at the pellet that put him on his little third sack. Olxon Bryant, and Ruwarts followed with more smashes, and Ping was glad to let them off with five runs. The only other score they made was In tho eighth, when Stewart dropped an easy fly, and Pete muffed a short poke after a long chase. Thore was some fine fielding stunts mixed In with uli this slugging. . Ro- warts niudo several clever stubs In the middle garden, and Doe Fairly camo in Fast, on several short onos, snaring them handily. in tho ninth Llbby scooped it pop fly that put a flnlwh to any lingering hopes. Plug Fulrly and Jim Forney wore tho grout slickers. Tho former miido four slnglou in tho five timos lie was up. Forney would have made two more? lilts If Pole had not boon too fust. In loft; as it was, ho Imd two singles and u triple. It. Is Impossible to recount u graphic history of tho gtimo, for It wan tho kind that must bo soon to bo appreciated.
