Miller was in almost perfect form. He allowed the Crnlghrad County Giants but two singles— both by lievo Beavers—anil had Iliein hiindciiffed almost all the •itt'-rnnon. He had plenty of zip <m his fast, ball and had them nibbling helplessly at his curve. Hi- fanned eiyht and issued but 'wo bases on balls. Ills mates gave him excellent support, especially Manager Klrchoff. The chieftain handled ten chances perfectly, and lost of 'cm were ihc tough type. Willie Miller was mowing the', .;i;mls down with regularity the mlians were bunching their seven ills—all one Imsers—off "Lefty" >!dwin Hughes, combining them vitli four visitor errors io Ihrce rorlng innings. Hughes made ten ndiniis bile the dust for the third ;lrikc and hurled a fair game, jut materially aided Ills downfall ,','ilh two errors nt crucial mo- nenls. But the way this boy Miter was foxing them in there he .vas hard to beat. The Indians really sewed np the janii" in the first inning by scor- ni; thf-ir first run, thanks to two bobbles. Grady Mills, first up, singled to right and went to second when Burnett momentariVj fumbled Ihc ball. He went to IhirJ when Hughes threw wildly t'i second utlcinptin!; to pick him off. Bill James ami John Scollnos went out but Hal Bernasek sent him In with a drive, to left. I?ob- i-rl:> let the ball get through him but recovered in time to get Bernasek trying to get an extra sack. They added three more in the Eifth with an error playing a leading part. With one away George Carson walked. Gene William? singled to left. Continni let the from the outfield get awas vom him and Carson went to htrd and Gene pulled up at see- ind. While poked one through list and second, scoring Carsoi ml Sending Williams to third Ji""" viiiffcd but Mills came through with another drive center driving In Williams and White. Two more In the sixth ran the total to six. Scolinos was plunked in the back. Hcrnasek forced him. Klrchoff hit to Hughes and with double play in sight heaved wide to Albright and both were safe. Carson again walked, filling the bases. Williams cracked one to left, Bernasck and Kirchoff denting 'the rubber. The first hit off Miller came lathe first Inning following a '"ise on balls to Albright. It was the only time thai a Giant reached third. On lils^ .second time at bal, in Ihe foinih, Beavers singled sharply through (he box. Mills snapped out of his hitting slump with three rousing singles to lead the Indian offense. Williams got his usual pair of hits. Secretary D. Fred Tray lor. Jr.. has announced that the St. Louis Browns, parent club, have sent William Livingston, right hand pitcher, and Edward Drone, catcher, both of St. Louis, and Carrel! Willoughby, lefthander, of Dcnni- son, Texas. Ui look over. They will be observed for five days and if (hey measure i:p will be signed to contracts. Roycc Williams, who managed the: locals last year, will bring his Paragould Rebels for two games, Tuesday and Wednesday. The. Giants'and Indians' cdiichide their two game set this afternoon.
