His Royal Highness •*; Humboldt knocked the Algona KCs into fourth place and moved into the top spot in the Kossuth County Baseball League with a 6-5 decision at the KC Park Sunday afternoon. The defeat, first of the year for the locals, came in a well- played game that saw the winners chalk up nine hits to seven for the KCs. A full slate is on tap in the loop again this Sunday, with Whittemore at Estherville; Lone Rock at Fort Dodge; Bancroft at Humboldt; and Algofla at Em .netsburg. Whitt em-ore downed Lone Rock, 10-2, Emmetsburg edged Bancroft, 7-6, and EsthervUle took Fort Dodge, 9-4, in other games Sunday, while Lone Rock chalked up a 7-6 verdict over Bancroft in a postponed game at Lone Rock Memorial Day. Humboldt drew first blood with a single run in the second nning. Cecil Schilmoeller, who lurled the entire game, walked the first hitter and misfired on an attempted pickoff that advanced the runner to second. J. Tanner then sliced a double to left-center field to send in the run. The KCs tied the count in the home half of the fourth. Ashton started the rally with the first KC hit of the fray with one out. He advanced when Nelson reached first on an error and scored when John Diekman blooped a hit into right field, sending Ashton home. Doubles by Bowers, Mosbach and Marcellus and a single by Monaghan gave Humboldt a 4-1 bulge in the top of the fifth, but two wnlks, singles by Bernardo and Ashton and a line triple by Gordy Winkel cut the margin to 4-3 in the last of the fifth. The KCs took the lead for the first and only time in the final half of the seventh. With two out, Ashon walked. Nelson doubled to left and Bob Slobe followed with a single to run the count to 5-4. Humboldt got the tj-ing and winning runs in the top of the 8th on singles by Monaghan ami J. Tanner and a long triple by F. Tanner. The KCs went out in order in the eighth and ninth. Th n . KCs presented an infield that was the sharpest seen for many years here. Nelson at third, Winkel at short, Merv Hentges at second, Bob Slobe at first and Ashton behind the plate, all looked flashy, with Hentgts turning in three or four outstanding plays during the fray. The locals looked weak at the plate, however, as 12 men went down on third strikes during the afternoon. Ashton of the KCs and Monaghan and F. Tanner of Humboldt each got two hits.
