UMATILLA WINS BALL
GAME AT BOARDMAN
The base ball fans who at
tended the Umatilla-Boardman
(?ame at Board man last Sunday
were treated to a fast and fori
ous game from start to finish. In
the seventh inning, with the
score five to five, the game was
halted for the space of half an
hour by a violent wind storm
which turned the diamond into r
whirlpool of dust making it im
possible for the batters to se
the pitcher. After the wind had
subsided the game was returner)
and the local bo.ys again hit thi
ball all over the field.
Good pitching by Smith in the
first five innings and Hutchinson
in the last four, supported ry er
rorless anri spectacular fieldinj
held the Board man boys to six
Up to tne lull in the seventh
inning it looked like Umatilla
would have a hard battle to hold
Board man down to six runs,
however, heavy hitting by ti e
Umatilla hoys proved too much
for their 01 ponents and the final
score stood ten to six in ft.vorol
Catcher Andrews of the 1 aid
man team is deserving of i peoial
mention for his numerous long
throws from home plate to second
base. POftOnately he faile-i ev -ral
times to catch the runner
napping. The playing of Llew
ellyn, centerrield for Umatilla
was characterized by his usual
unfailing catches of long drives
made by Boardman battels. In
this connection, great cnuit is
due Pond and Oompton for simi
lar work in the Held, not forget
ting the hea vy hitting and base
stealing by the balance of our
Kepford substituted for Albert
Ford, Umatilla's catcher. The
latter was indisposed but his
keen interest in the work of h 8
team as well a his great desire
to see the boys win was incen
tive enough to take him to Board
man. He a nd Sam Board man
were "drafted" as umpires.
Several close decisions featured
the game, however, both sides
appeared to be satisfied and the
fans were appreciative of the
