BURDETT WINS 7-2, The Burdett baseball team journeyed to Winnlfred on the 22nd and crossed batB with the Forty Milo Coulee team. It was a very exciting and good game up until the fith Inning," errorless ball being played, by both teams and no scores made. Binard for Burdett was in great pitching form. With a man on second and third and one man down, he pitched himself out of the hole in the fourth and fifth inning. Bowe for Burdett s'arted' things going. In the sixth he got a single, Emard followed with another single, two scores beiug made in that inning. Had it not been for an overthrow by the Burdett catcher, It would have been a shut out game. The final- score was seven to two. On the 15tli of .Juno Burdett won I'rom Foremost 9 to 0, Lethbridge made twice as many runs, twice as many bits and twice as many errors as Coaldaie in Saturday evening's session of the popular pastime at Eckstorm park Saturday evening. The score was 4-2, and the fans voted it the best game of the season. Incidentally the management of the local ball club has decided that Saturday evening ball in Loth bridge is a success, and the decks are being cleared for two games a week, Wednesday and Saturday evenings, i Wednesday will be a half holiday com- ] menclng July 11. The Saturday even- ; ing fixture is an attraction for the hundreds who come in from outside points for their weekly visit. Saturday night's game following on the disaster the homebrews did to Raymond the other^eyening has put some gimp in the boys, and the fans have gotten over the sore touch of the last game staged here when Raymond did seventeen different kindB of things to Lethbridge. After Saturday's feature, the fans are going to click the turnstiles at a merry clip. The Coaldaie aggregation of ball tossers is not to be sneezed at. H. A. Suggitt is" managing the crew and Roger Lund pilots them in the garden. They were minus a couple of their stars Saturday or the game might have been different telling. Only one eTror was registered against them. They played snappy ball, putting up a good appearance. Joe Gillis occupied the hill opposing Lund, ana Joe as usual played ball all the tyay. His pitching and fielding, the batting o� tho taiNend of the local line-up and McCann's work at short were tho features of the game. The close score kept the fans fanning for air. Gillis held Coaldaie to four hits. They combined two o� them with error* by Pickett and Cosgriff, the only local players to make a fumble,''in the sixth, and the stanza netted two runs. In that frame Lund bunted one about seven feet in front of the plate. Gillis came up on it, sat down and Lund wa*j safe. Then Noble clouted out to the left field boards. Lund came home, but snappy fielding held Noble at second. Cosgriff foozled W. Potter's grounder and Noble came home. Potter was later caught off second, Joe Gillis to Green. Livingstone chopped off a threatening period in the next when Howard sizzled one along first base line. Livey made a one-handed pick-up back of first and beat' the runner to the bag. In the fifth Joe Gillis brought the crowd to its feet by racing in from the box and taking a high fly back of- the plate, which Bond had misjudged. LothJn'Idge's scoring all came in the second and fourth on clean hitting by the last Ave men on the batting order. Cosgriff seemed to like Lund's slants. He laid on the first that came his way for three bags. He scored easily a minute later on Dunsworth's single. Dunsworth scored on C. Gillis' double swat. Tho head of the batting order had gone down on three pitched balls in the first frame. They went back to the bench on four pitched balls in the third. In the fourth Cosgriff started the trouble again when he singled. Dunsworth, next up, singled for his second hit. Bond went out, pitcher to first. Then C. Gillis poled another single, shoving in two runs. Livingstone, next up, drove out a nice one to centre. Gillis tried to make it all the way but was nipped at the plate. That ended the frame and the local scoring. McCanii, for Coaldaie, was eating 'em alive, getting six put outs and two assists, without the semblance of an error. In the fifth he retired the side all by his lonesome. Dunsworth at centre for Lethbridge, got four put outs and covered a world of ground. Coaldaie can drjiw a crowd here any time they appeal-,'�nd the locals will get all kinds of support if they keep on playing with aa'.imuch pep as they displayed Saturday* -evening. The box score: .�.
