ENTERPRISE HUMBLES LEAD
ERS OF LEAGUE TWICE IN
Well, well, well! Two games ln
one afternoon from the strong Union
team, leaders of the Eastern Ore
gon league. Maybe those Enterprise
boys can't play ball some? We guess
And they were decisive victories.
Nothing uncertain about those scores,
9 to 1 and 7 to 3. And the playing
was in proportion to the tallies, or
a little more so, for if anything luck
broke Union's way. Enterprise won
cleanly as well as decisively, out
batting, out-fielding and out-pitching
Never for a moment was the first
game in doubt. Bilyeu held the
Union sluggers in the hollow of his
hand, and he pitched a masterly
game from every angle. He had per
fect control, allowed but three miser
ly hits, struck out five and out
guessed the batters in a way that
made them laugh at their own ef
forts. He eased up after the sixth
Inning, with the game safe, but still
the Union batters could not solve
his delivery. Only 30 batters, three
more than the least possible number,
faced him in the game.
For seven out of the nine innings
it was one, two, three out for Union.
Not a man reached first untij the
fourth when G. Clark smashed a hit
to left and reachei second on Sav
age's poor throw, the only error made
by Enterprise ln the game. Clark
died on second, for Billy Bauer made
a fine catch of Skiff's high fly. In
the next inning with two down, Da
vis made a hit and scored on No
dine's two bagger. That was the
end of the scoring or ven seeing
first base for Union, brilliant field'
Ing by Pace, Hug, French, E. Pld
cock and Savage aiding Bilyeu's
grand pitching until the end.
All of Enterprise's runs were made
in one inning also, but they threat
ened ln almost every time at bat,
good fielding and hard luck alone
holding them down. Hug reached
first on. a hit the first time up but
was left. R. Pldcock knocked a
daisv cutter in the third but suc
ceeding batsmen failed . to advance
him. In the fifth Conaway and Sav
age made base-hits in succession, but
the former was forced off second
M R SCI S
by foolish baserunnlng and was
caught at third
In the sixth came the balloon
ascension. McMillan gave four bases
on ball and was found for four
smashing hits, one a three-bagger.
His teammates assisted ln the aerial
