The affair was not muc:i of a ball game at any time. "Jrilliant baseball was conspicuous by its absence and numerous plays showed that both teams were asleep at the switch. The contest was further marred by Manager" Peeny Fink of the Argos club, who let h s usual roughneck tactics carry him to the point of a loud but harmless attack on Umpire Baumbach. Bremen scored in the first inning when Sullivan walked and then came in on two clean singles by l ux and Huff. In the second Morse and Riddle hit for the Grays and avo bad errors by Lux let them both score. Bremen tied in the count in the fifth on singles by Touhey and Britton, in connection with Huff's free ticket. A double, a single, a walk and one man hit by the pitcher counted an other run for Bremen in the seventh and brought the score to 3 to 2. In the eighth Bauerline's two ply drive and a smashing triple by Wortz net ted one more, and it looked as though the game was won. Then came the weird ninth. Riddle singled. Saegert walked and so did Dunlap, filling the p;lhs with none down. Errors by Os valt and Lux and a single by Beigh brought the whole gang around and the Greens were helpless in the 1-st home half. The game looks like a vreak affair on paper. Bremen gathered a three base hit, two doubles and six singles off Whiting's bende.s, while seven singles was the best Argos could get off Oswalt. Whiting passed five Greens and hit four of them, putting nine of them on without cost, and yet the Greens could get only four runs out of it. Two sacrifice hits, by Lux and Bauerline, also failed to add to the Bremen run getting.
