B RONKIE and ' Derrick, handed Batur-. day's game to the Saints, but today's victory for the home team was the joint gift of Derrick and Cozy Dolan. In spite of them, however, the Indians forced the .game to go ten Innings -before they succumbed, 4 to 3, and lost the third of four . games played here. Aldridge pitched a rattling good game of ball, but in the face of the support the Hoosier Schoolmaster , received Walter Johnson could not have won. Derrick overthrew first base three times,, all of his errors being on ground balls hit to him by Smith. , Dolan's bobble was a mental lapse. In the tenth, with two on and none out, Dressen lifted an easy tly to him, but instead of backing out a f( ; w feet he ran In toward the diamond. When he discovered his mistake it was too late and the ball game had been tossed away. Phil Douglas and Aldridgo were effective in pinches, although both were landed on frequently. - For Glenn Saves Saints. the home team, Glenn was the hero o f ' t h e ' d a y . Saturday 'Marry came up in the ninth with two runs needed to win and delivered. Today . his . turn came in the eighth, with the Indians . leading, 8 to 1. Two were out at the time and two were on hastes, Dresscn having beaten out a tap to Crandali and Land having driven the ball clear through Bronkle and Derrick, who was backing --him up, 'to the left fielder. It was Douglas's turn to bat, hut he was excused and Harry Glenn took his place. Gllmore at the same time replaced the other Grover at second, being fleeter of foot. Glenn drove a hot liner at Crandali, who did well to knock it down. While lie was picking It Up, Dressen nnd Gllmore hastened In with the runs t h a t tied tho score. The Saints scored in the first.
