FINAL SCORE: 11 TO Mayor Brown Tosses First Ball of Season and Fans Madden. Jeff Wouldn't Make Very Much of a Farmer The San Antonio Bronchos made their initial bow of the season, lo- cally, Saturday afternoon and were humbled by the Galveston- Pirates by an 11 to 6 tally before a large number of spectators. The game was as full of errors as a yellow dog with fleas, the Bronchos and the pirates dividing honors, each mak- ing six with honors even. Each team used two twlrlers, New- ton relieving Casey after one was down" in the second inning and two on bags by virtue of a single and a walk. Larson' was Manager Good- win's nominee, but his control was poor and Morton replaced him the first half of the fifth. Morton twirled stellar ball and was going along like a steam engine on rollers until the ninth Inning, when the Pirates cut loose with a bombardment that shook the amphitheater. The Pirates while they only made eight hits, made 'em when they needed 'em most nnd for distance as well as proper placement, Made llally. The Bronchos made a game rally in the seventh inning and seemed about to spill the beans for Manager Sentell's crowd when, with.the sacks loaded, two out and two runs over Ihe pan nnd McMahon up, things began to take on a bright appear- ance while the rooters rooted to a fare-thee-well for Mac to do some- thing. He >dld. He popped to Sentell, who was shaking like a leaf waiting for the pellet, nnd said Sentell glom_ med the hull and 'twas over. Again the Bronchos came to the fore in the final stanza, scoring two runs and McMahon again made the final out, grounding to Sentell, who, to show his mean disposition, threw him out to Watson and all made for the traction cars. To start the game the Pirates put over two runs on Larson when "Wat- son doubled with two men on In the first, only to have the Nags come hack in their half with Knaupp scoring from first" on wild first wards first antf some distance past the sack to boot. It Again. The Pirates again' put over two In the second after two were down, Casey 'going to first Larson ,poked him In the.ribs, with "ana" Madden being safe on'1 Allen's muff of his pop and both scoring on Sentell's nifty two-bagger to center. 'Things went along swimmingly with the fans hoping against, hope until ,tlie ninth frame, when, 'after Newton had scored on. a .fielder's choice after walking and two men on the bags, Massey pulled-the fea- ture elam of the day- by making a home-run-.to. the right field fence, scoring Madden .and Sentell ahead of him. The Broncs' rally. In, their half "died a-bloomhig after two had floored. As a prelude to the contest Mayor Brown pitched the first ball to Massey, who was called" out on 'strikes by Umpire Madden made a bluff like he wag-peeved. Everybody enjoyed the doings and the band that was in the Rooters" .parade In the. afternoon played be- tween innings.
