THE SUMPTER MINER.
SUMPTER WINS GAME.
Defeats Baker City by Score
of 17 to 15.
Captain "Casey" Cronin. at the head
of Sumpter's aggregation of colls, lias
won the local heart. He and they ex
hiDited to the Baker City team Sunday
.-ttternuon a new and original way of
"rublilng it in." The story reads, Sump
ter 17, Maker 15. Hut the tale de.ilN with
items ot vital interest other than a mer
score. Heavy hitting, one or two really
lirilliaut plays, two tights, comical coach
ing, an ,-ucldeut to a player, dust, heat,
heer and betling all these elements con
spired to make the name one grand eent
in tile history ot Siimpter.
'I lie home learn was nrst at I1.1t, and
gave tile lsitorsn foretaste ly stacking
up four tallies, haker drew a blank in
Iter half, while Siimpter added two more
in tile second. Then the visitors drew
hreath and bv dint of two hits, two errois
and daring base running, stored four. In
the third Siimpter added one. It was a
cinch ior the home boys it seemed, and
bets were two to one, with no lakers.
Then the aspect changed. Raker tied
the score. I wti bases on balls, one hit
and lour errors caused it all. I'lie dark
ness ol doubt spread over the Sumpler
hnrrion. hveu Manager Lelhenstelu
cultivated cold feet and vowed it was "all
off." Captain "Casey" Cronin, how
ever, and liis eight scared coyotes, took a
new hitch in their trousers and spat anew
upon their hands. They strode in turn
to tlie bat and touched otf lireworks.
They sent Baker's fielders to the tall
timber. They inaugurated a speedy
procession around the base lines. They
made Pitcher Uyche a monkey, amid
pandemonium from the Siimpter rooters
and a silence almost awful Horn the
visiting fans. After the smoke cleared
away the touut was made. Siimpter
stood eight scores to the good. There
alter the game was never in doubt.
Tlie home boys hit like fields. Two
and three baggers were frequent.
"Trilby" Hall smote out a homer, but
was called out because he cut second by
The star play was Charley Warren's
double unassisted. A twisting pop tly
was hit behind second. The field ap
peared deserted. A Baker boy was
sprinting homeward like the wind. Long,
lank Warren got his eye on that ball.
He dug his toes in the dust and hurl led.
He stretched his six feet of lithe body
and three feet of strong arms. Like a
Siwash spearing salmon he speared that
sphere, and the granJ stand spoke. He
strode majestically to second and com
pleted the double. The side was retired
amid a chaos ot yells.
Pitcher Hauswirth was wild, but ef
fective at critical points. Hobson caught
like a leager. The big error list was
caused by the bad grounds. Following is
