TH RILLIN G CON TEST
For the second time this year the
Estacada Legionnaires defeated the
league leaders of Oswego in Sunday
afternoon’s game. It was a thriller
all the way through, and the victory
was not cinched until Minto caught
a high fly in the last half of the
ninth for the third out, two men be
ing on buses at the time.
Oswego, winner o f the first half
o f the Portland Valley league, has

two o f those three have been won by
The lake nine was de

The result o f Sunday’s game leaves
a three-cornered tie for first posi

game from Estacada in this half and
then was defeated by Oswego.
The local team has won ten games

Sherwood will play here next Sunday
afternoon, in the last scheduled game
o f the season. The loss o f this con
test by the home team would end
the season so far as the league is con
cerned. If Estacada wins this battle
there will be a playoff for the cham
pionship o f the second half, and if
in this contest Estacada should win
thtre will be a playoff with Oswego
for the league championship.
The start Sunday looked bad for
the Legionnaires. Oswego got two
hits and as many runs in the first
inning and scored two more runs in
the third, making the score 4 to 0
In the fourth frame Estacada got 4
hits and two runs. In the fourth,
fifth and sixth innings Russell held
the lake club to 2 hits and no runs.
Estacada failed to score in the
fifth and sixth innings, but in the
seventh, Russell, Legionnaires twirl-
er, started the fireworks with a two-
base hit. Minto was up next and
singled. A. Lovelace followed with a
two bagger, scoring Russell and Min
to. Ray Lovelace singled, and Sun-
deleaf, who had pitched the game so
far, was replaced by Chief Manning.
Fischer was safe on Brooks’ error
and two runs came in with no outs
and the score standing at 6 to 4.
Miller was safe" on a fielder’s
choice and VVeinel struck out for the
first out. Bronson singled and Jen

In the last half o f the seventh
Russell was wild and walked two men
and allowed four hits for as many
runs, making the score 9 to 8.
Estacada failed to score in the first
half o f the eighth and in Oswego’s
half Sundelenf struck out and Brooks

him out and he went to the bench.
Fischer threw the ball to first base
and it was passed around the infield
when Brooks slipped back to first
base and wa3 called safe over the
protest o f Estacada's manager and
at least half the fans. There was a
big disturbance which lasted for sev
eral minutes, the umpire changing
his decision two or three times but
finally deciding that Broks was safe.
Estacada gave notice that the game
from that time on was being played
Brooks scored on Simons two-base
hit, tying the score.
In the first half o f the ninth Miller
and Bronson each got singles and
Russell and Minto each got two-base

double plays seen this season, Bron
