The visitors were lucky to hit Bim at alL At the end of the ninth inning be had struck out 1" men. At the end of the game he had whiffed twenty- five, certainly a remarkable record In the strike out line. He • was good in pinches, fanning the visitors easily when men were on. Opposed to him was one Duncan who was also some pitcher. He did not have much speed but he was heady and hard to connect with. At the end of the ninth inning the sjore was a tie, 0 to 0.. Everybody leaned back in their seats and prepared for a long drawn-out contest, for the teams were evenly matched. Things went on this way until the nth when the visitors got two men on by bits, the runners reaching sec- !ond and third. "Rdf Gnibbs. who bad caught a great game up" to this limt-, let one of Johnson's fast drops get through his glove and the two runners trotted home with what appeared to be the winning rnns. The home team looked sick, mighty sick. But in their turn to bat they picked ! up in spirit. "Shots!' Turner secured a walk, and then "Rat" Gmbbs mada up for bis mi.splay In the previous .sr -.ssion by lining th*" ball Into the cane fieUl. By the time the fielder bad .separated the ball from the ciilntz bugs, two Go-Devils had snorted acros.s the jdate and the score was tied.
