True, the Cubs were victorious. Vet, in losing, tho Tigers had sufficient punch to score four runs in a rousing ninth-inning rally that had tho Cubs perilously close to running Cor their foxholes. Any team that can come from far back in tho ruck and score that many runs against j one of the. best pitchers in Kern ! county is a team that cannot be counted out until tho final bell has tolled. It was a terrific, awe-inspiring spectacle to watch, and the crowd— biggest of the year—was wildly enthusiastic and breathlessly quiet in turn as the game proceeded through its eight and a half innings. The Tigers, visiting team lasl night, drew first blood when they scored one run in the first inning on three hits and an error but the Cubs came back in their half of the second to tie the game at that stage on an error, a. stolen base and a timely single by Jack Brown, lanky Cub catcher, who can play anything from baseball to farming—and does! The Tigers again forged ahead in tho first of the fourth when Reyes, way to third and then i-aine hoi >n Pixon's s!u\v bounder to first, whi'h went as the second out. Gregory fanned to end (he inning. lUit then the Cubs, -'ayi-r as a young foxhound when bo be.irs his first, bay. wont to work on Klnior Kessler, the Delano Itiyh School hoy who is one of this county's finest pitching prospects. .Jim Hrown and Parker hit successive singles, .lack Brown fanned while they languished on first anil second but Wright, H slightly built little fellow, caunlit one of Kosslor's pitches on the no> ( . for a triple into deep center field. Jones, next man up. singled, scoring Wright I'm- the third run of the inning and sending the Cubs into the lead. While Demaree was holding the Tigers, his teammates continued to got enough base knocks off Kesslor to score three more runs in a big sixth inning and another counter in the seventh and --after a scoreless ! eighth inning in both halves—it looked like a runaway for the Cubs, who were then leading, eight runs two.
