Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 23, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta TMI LlTHiUlDQI DAILY HERALD, MONDAY, AUQUiT tt, l SPORTS AND AMUSEMENTS FIRST GAME WENT THIRTEEN INNINGS Was Called With Score a Tie Second Game Was Ah Easy Victory For Lethbridge To use a mathematical expression it might be called an "interminable series." -If it hadn't stopped when it did it might be going on yet. Tt was a ease of one good turn deserves As the long afternoon wore away and the long shadows showed that evening was stealing on, they fought with the courage born of des- peration for the wants of the -inner man began, to assert themselves and the wistful -expression on the faces of the players must have iaove'd 'he stonyhearted Grimes to sympathy; It was the fateful .thirteenth, and the magic number seven stood to each team's credit, when Grimes call- ed the game to Callow a breathing space before the evening-game com- menced. It was .an interesting study to watch how the broad smile on the faces of the Eegina playes at the end of the first gradually dissolved as the game wore on, and even Canty's urbane countenance began to show of worry and exhaustion. Canty did his best and worked hard but he was "all in" btsfore the ninth ended and. Neidenfeur was called in to save the situation Tacks McNeil, who started the ball twirling in the first, gave three hits in succession and got discouraged. Menzel replaced Trim and did good work. It certainly looked rather blue when the' first three up and Collins landed a three-bagger. But the Fates in the shape of the Jfiners interposed and there it stood. Canty doubtless has an old time grudge against the ,Oorrigan brothers and started Joe out with a bruise in the Tibs and Joe made the round. But a repeti- tion of that first was -not to be. A goose egg for .the 'visitors in the second and another in the third, al- though' they got a man on each time! Canty went rather wild in the third and Cox had a. HEalk home. Nothing again in the fourth for, the visitors and Joe Corrigan's run tied the score and started the real was worth while from here on. The little bunch of spectators who watched the game sat up and took notice. If that grand stand had been filled, as it usually is, there would have been some noise alright. The visitors scored two in the fifth, Collins getting home while Sporer held the play between- second and third for a sure put out. And then that score board looked like an editor's bank account, and a double row of them'too. We read of the English yeomen "cut- ting down the Norman horsemen when they rode up like forests of young and history repeated itself. The spell was broken in the eighth when Bs-11 JfiaJa a hit to Collins who threw wild to first and Bell made sec- ond. Chicken let him in and the Miners added one. Regina came back at them with an- other one in the ninth and led by two. It a sure win, -but "hope springs eternal in the human and the Miners- were not satisfied to give up tbXgame" before it was lost. Canty hit Joe Corrigan again and Jack got a "hard knock didn't get his base for It. However, he walked anyhow and it didn't matter.' And they came in, bottii of them I Two runs in the ninth and the score was tied! TJifc tenth brought no relief, and when the first three men up in the eleventh went ,to bases it began to look it wasn't. There were just three caught flies in suc- cession and a sigh of" relief escaped the anxious watchers. who went in in. the eleventh, pitched good ball and did much to balance the score. The twelfth gave them one more each making the seven. It wag a close game in the thirteenth ,when the hasps again filled up and Ander- son went up to bat and hit to first. Pieh got it back to home and put'ou1 Neidenfeur. Lynch put it bfcck to first again "and 'Si to the home plate once more getting Quinn., something of a see-sew, but oh my, how beau- tiful it worked! Well, that was all. It was six o'clock and the crowd was beginning to arrive ior the evening game; Thus it stands. What it might have been is doubtless the subject of a great many that can be said is that it looked pretty- much likte a the 23rd innings.
