OKEGON NEWS NOTES OF PRINCIPAL I
EVENTS HAPPENING DURING WEEK
GRJE ATESt HORSE NOW MUNCHtc
Umatilla's husky ball tossers led
the Boardman team to slaughter
last Sunday to the tune of 15 to. 7.
The game was on the Umatilla
grounds and witnessed by an en
thusiastic crowd of fans. A stiff
breeze from the west made judg
ment of Jies very difficult for the
outfielders from Uoardman, but did
not seem to bother Pound, Llewel
lyn or Compton appreciably.
Umatilla opened the first inning
by landing on Boardman's pitcher,
Keys, for five runs. The Boardman
stick artists failed to locate Milt
Smith, who pitched for Umatilla.
In the second inning Boardman
annexed three runs and held the
Umatilla team to one. In the third
and fourth cantos Umatilla made
two more runs. The fifth inning
brought four runs to the railroaders
making the score twelve to three.
In the sixth frame our boys took
a brace and brought in one run,
holding Umatilla from scoring. The
Umatilla added three runs in the
seventh, while Uoardman scored
once in the eighth and twice in the
Milt Smith pitched his usual stel
lar game for Umatilla, allowing
only scattered hits for the most
part. Umatilla's veteran catcher,
Ford, was able to be back in the
For Board man Chayme and Wag
ner did good work. Keys pitched for
Boardman until the eighth inning,
when he was replaced by Rand. The
latter held the opponents down in
the last two innings.
The game was ably umpired by
J. D. Zurcher of Stanfield.
