Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 12, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta A 1.1. THE LOCAL AND WORLD'S FOREMOST EVENTS THE LETHBEIDGE DAILY HERALD Thursday, July WARNER'S STAR ARTISTS WIN AGAIN CLEANED UP MAGRATH BEFORE BIG CROWD OF FANS AT RAYMOND rmymond, July after- boon Magrath suffered the dregs of another defeat at the hands of the Warner Homesteaders, on Victoria park diamond, before an immense croivd, the score being C-0. It was a clean shut-out. The Garden City ho.vs labored with all their might and main to get over the piste, but every ef- fort failed, through the stellar pitch irig of Berg, who has begun to loom up big in southern twirling circles. Sev- eral tlioeg Magrath succeeded in get- ting men on first and second, but hard luck and t'i'ht playing prevented them from croislng the home sack. Magrath's. new battery, Phippen Sellens, were working, and play- a magr.ificent game. Phippen had 'their goat in every innings with the of the first, when they got three runs. He was fresh, and could not get his wing down to real bus- But after the first two taninga I he' handed great dope to his catch, i who iras always on the Job. Only two hits were gotten from him from the innings. The Warner sluggers were plilnjy befuddled, and had it .not been tor an error on the part ot Wal- ker rn the ninth, the score would have been thrse to nothing, instead of six. Warner made their runs in the first and. the ninth, and the peculiar ihing iboiit it is, that they mads three scores time. It was really a faster game than the one in the morn- 'Ing between Raymond and Carchton, and it was much cleaner from the standpoint of errors. Magrath was gooBe-egged every in- They were certainly oft color, and their heat hatters were puzzled with Berg's endless offerings of slant- ftps. His phenomena! drops caught Magrath lads everj time, and he fcad no lees than fourtven to his credit The feature of the game .was tluj clezzling .triple pulled off in the eighth. This was without doubt the. greatest play of the season. Cole- Man played a safe for JIagrath in centre field, his new position, and Hocking, Beglo'w and Douglas did ftHhful and effective work on the bases. .Mercer had a little hard luck 'short in a dumber of instances allowing ah'easy one to miis his ball CELEBRATED OARSMAN jBOW ISLANDERS DOUBLE TWO FAST OPPONENTS HAVE PECUL- IAR NAMS Eddie Durnan of Toronto, Who Defeated Wm.

The Garden City now hss a first claw out- .field when .lim Mercer's foot recovers. Warner Pliyod Cirefully garner played their nanal good game. took no chances, and had result on their hrp. Outside of the.triple there were no noteworthy plays pulled off.

Altogaiher the was excellent. Both teams deserve great credit for the fine display of ball they handed out. TLe horse races that were Band- in at times to the 'interest of the crowd, but this .could not-be avoided. Magrath now has a strong aggregation, and with their fast bat- tery they ought to make a strorig fin- ish. There are MTeral good boosters behind the team, and Magrath will be heard from henceforth.

July morn ing in one of the fastest games of ibail ever seen on a local diamond, Card- ston took the league fixture scheduled for today from-the Sugar Jfen, to-the tune of 5 to 1. It .was an exciting game from start to finish, both teams putting lots o-f ginger into.their work. There was one, regrettable feature, an'd that wag .the number errors that were made. Aparl. from this, however, the. contest was first class, and interest never once lagged. Pitcher a Puzzle Fullmer was on. .the mound for the visitors aud heaved fairly good ball. He was given classy.. support' by Thompson, Oardston's: fast catcher, who s whip to second Is seldom seen outside of the big leagues Although Fullmer appeared easy, many ,of Ray mond's best sluggers failed con- nect OBnen who is the giant swatsman of the teqra was up a stump and Fullmei s benders puz zletl the local tiwirler. Of course Ray: lone tally' was made by Don Skouson, the original base stealing kid.

Walker had been sent waltzing to the bench and Fettis had taken a stroll to first, he chased across home plate. This, tick- led Raymond, and about all the tlcklingTthey ever did is, during the game: Cardston greeted the famous O'Brien, who Was in the box for Sugar vine. Johnson was.grinning on first, Dr Amos him good backing on second, and Williams' eyes beamed from their sockets on' third. .And Fettis held down .With such an infield any pitcher ought to make good, and Cody delivered accordingly.

In Ron, Johnson and This coupled with Bow Island, July of tin best ball games of tho season were placed here' today, between tlic loea nine and the 5-9 team. The visitors came highly recommended as being a hard bunch ;to beat, but our hoys were able to slip one gaiuo awaj from them in the shuOle. The 'first game, at- 3 o'clock, was well attend ed, amT so. Boyle, the slab artist for the visitors, was in good form, and though he passed one ojt two and hit ohc.innn, upheld his reputation. Beguin, for Bow Island, was not in first class conditioa, but showed up well indeed. Out of -IS balls hit the entire game, only 11 ot them went to the'outfield, three ot them being muffed or missed entirely, showing that most of the runs were not earned. However, taking into consideration the coolness of the at- mosphere, and other hindrances, both played good ball and cannot bo severely criticized.
