S-8 Tie Broken in Tenth Inning
After Bull Prairie Boys Make
Huge Storing: Effort.
(Bull Prairie Correspondent)
The Bull Prairie boys were de
feated on Sunday afternoon at the
Heppner baseball field by the Lex
ington team, 6-5. When the score
was tied at 5-all in the tenth Inn
ing, Angelo Biano, the Bull Prairie
third baseman, mishandled a
grounder, which caused Harry
Dunne, his team's twirler. to lose
a tough argument
The pitching of the Lexington
team was taken care of by Beach,
that smiling red-head. He let plen
ty of our boys get on bases, but
that's where the majority of them
Davidson, the second man at bat
in the first inning, was hit by a
pitched ball. Biil Whitson tripled,
but Davidson was out at the plate
by a hair. However, the Bull Prai
rie boys were presented with a run
when Burchell fumbled Hank Rob
In the third inning. Dunne looped
a high fly to A. Munkers in right,
who dropped it for a two-base er
ror. Rintavalle walked. Then our
boys proceeded to work & double
steal as Davidson sacrificed and
Dunne came galloping home.
Bull Prairie threw the game away
in the last half of the third. Beach
opened the inning with a single,
and had reached second when San
ders let the ball go past him for an
error. Carmichael reached first and
Eeach scored when Dunne made a
wild heave to the catcher.
The next two men, V. Munkers
and Gentry, struck out Scott sin
gled for his second hit of the game,
stole second and reached third
when Hank Robertson, our catcher,
made a wild heave into center field.
He scored when Devito mishandled
Burchell's grounder. Four runs,
three hits and four errors.
With one out in the fourth, Biano
walked, Sanders tripled and Devito
singled to produce a pair of runs.
Devito started the sixtn wiui a
walk and then stole second. Dunne
struck out but Rintavalle singed to
tic the score.
The most dangerous Bull Prairie
threat came with ono down in the
tenth when Dunne lined a ball to
left field for a triple. However, he
was put out at the plate by a beau
tiful throw by Scott Rintavalle
followed with another triple that
just missed being a homer when
it bounded against the left field
wall. Davidson was out, Carmich
ael to Burchell, to end the inning.
Burchell led off the last half of
the tenth with a double. A. Mun
kers' single, his third of the game,
and Biano's mishandling of Graves'
grounder, scored the winning run

A record small crop of wheat is
in prospect, the estimate being ap
proximately 500 million bushels
compared with 726 million last year
and the 1928-1932 average of 8f5
million. With a carryover of 3t!j
million bushels and expected dom
estic use and export of around 600
million, a carryover next July 1 of
200 million bushels seems likely.
Outside the United States, the
world supply of wheat, considering
both the new crop and the record
carryover, appears to be about the
same as a year ago.
