Methodists Romp Home With
Long End of Score Against
As a fitting prelude to the non-eon-Incnee
t'jck meet which is holding
lorth on Willanntiu field liiia after
noon, the Jleihodists annexed tint lion
conference baseball championship yes-
fcrday afternoon by romping home with i
tuo long end of a 6 to S scoro against j
McMinnville. Willi the baajPnll dinm
jionship tueko.l in their belts the Wil
lamette rooters will undoubtedly have
another championship served to them
when the final score is east up in the
rack meet which is incidentally con
siderable of a feather in Coach Mat
thews eap since the excellent athletic
record of the Methodists this year is
directly due to his coaching.
With the score 5 to 4 in favor of
the MeMinnvilleites in the ninth iun
ing Rexford spanked the pill into safe
territory and is credited with starting
the fracas that resulted in a victory
for the Methodists. Shisler reached
first in the final inning on an error
by the McMinnville third baseman and
I'roetor who batted for Ksteb flied out.
Miller singled and Shisler perched safe
Iv on third when Eexford swung his
club into the face of one of Brown's
inshoots and scored Shisler. Steele re
tovered the ball but bungled in the
throw and Miller crossed the (date with
