In one of the best games ever seen
In Marshfleld, Bandon lost to Marsh
field yesterday by a score of 3 to 2.
Bandon scored one run in the first
of the second and one in the first
of the eighth while Marshfleld scored
one In tho last of the second and two
In the last of the eighth. Bandon
played an errorless game and all but
two or three of Marshfleld's errors
were excusable ones, although one of
Bandon's scores was due to them
In the pitcher's battle, Thiele had
considerable the best of it even
though his support was not quite as
gilt-edged as Bandon gave Jordan.
A three-bagger between center and
left by Causley In the eighth that
came might near being good for a
home run on account of bad throws
from the field by McKeown to Owen
and in turn by Owen to McCutcheon
was the long hit of the day. The hit
that did the business for Marshfleld,

full, bring In the two winning
Eighth Fenturo Uniting.
The eighth was tho feature Unlng
of the game, a little vaudeville stunt
being introduced that added ginger
to the game. Causley started
things early In It for Bandon
by landing a pretty three-bagger. He
reached third about the tlmo that
the ball did but it was a bad throw
and McCutcheon seeing that he
couldn't get It before It reached the
ground attempted to fall on It, fear
ing a bad bounce. As he fell, he
landed on Causley who was sliding.
The ball rolled on past but Thiele
was there. McCutcheon didn't get
up as quickly as some of the Ban
don fans thought that he should and
thoy rushed to third, accusing him
of holding Causley. For a moment
It looked as though there would be
trouble but It passed over. Schofleld
who followed Causley at tho bat
struck out. R. Meyers was up and,
hit a slow one to third. McCutcheon
