Boston Gets The Second By A
Score of 17 to 3.
After a hurried supper and good
t ' i i -XT 1
Dye to tiie Vermont Doys we are
hurried to the depot by Manager
Turner and board the train for
Charlotte. It is reached about
12:30 Sunday Morning- and every
body hunts a bed. Sunday morning
we Separate for the different church
es. - This scribe is much indebted
to Post-Master T. R." Robertson
and his hospitable wife for their ex
ceuent entertainment wnue in tne
Sunday afternoon, at 6:40 the
Boston team arrived and joined us
at the Buford House. Manager
Selee had eighteen men with him
arid they all seemed to be in fine
trim. Most of them appeared to be
Irish, but they didn't "lose." The
County Clare accent ' was so thick
in the hotel office that it could have
been cut with a knife.
The next day was a perfect one
for baseball, though it was threat
ening for a few hours in the forenoon.
Some of the boys spent the morning"
at the North State club-rooms, to
wh,ch we all had been given tickets
by the management, some went out
to the Park to see Boston limber up.
When play was called at 4 o'clock
the grand stand was full of White
and Blue shouters. The ground
was in good fix. U, N. C. .went to
the bat with Wilson in the box for
1st. Stanly was the first man up
and actually hit the ball for two
bases! Then the grand stand
howled. But when Oldham follow
ed with another two-barrer. and
roosted on 2nd with Pat scored, the
grand stand went wild. So did the
scorer, so did every man who had a
white and blue ribon on. An earned
. 44 -t
run, uiciham on second and nobod'
out! Bailey strikes out, Stephens
sacrifices Oldham to third, and
Gregory goes out from Wilson to
Boston. Lowe hits to Stanly. and
goes to third on his wild throw to
first. Long, the great shortstop
of the League, picks out one that
suits him and puts it over the distant
left field fence. He gets a feeble
round of applause for this. Duffy
the "great and only," the champion
batter of the world, hits a long fly
to Graham E. which of course is
equivalent to a strike out, and Mc
Carthy, Duffy's side partner, does
the same. Collins is out on a ' 'pop' '
2nd Slocumb gets first on wild
throw by Capt. Nash, tries to steal
second but is thrown out by Tucker
to Lowe on Graham W's hit to
Tucker. Graham E. strikes out,
Boston. Capt. Nash hits a little
grounder to Bailey and is promptly
put out.' Gauzee flies out to Grah
am IS. Wilson gets a clean hit be
tween center and right. Lowe fol
lows with another and takes second
on fielders error. Long sends a hot
one to Slocomb and is retired at first
by Paulines beautiful throw. Bos
ton shut out.
3rd. Stanley hits to left field and
is .safe at first on McCarthr's muff.
Then comes the prettiest play of the
game: Pat calls to Oldham to "take
one." Wilson, therefore, puts one
square over the base and Oldham
bunts scientifically to Lowe. While
Lowe and Tommy Tucker are busy
putting Oldie out on first, Pat is
quietly going on to third like a
streak of lightning. Tucker final
ly wakes up and fires the ball over
to Capt. Nash, but Stanley is sit
ting on the base when it arrives.
Bailey responds to the applause
with a clean hit over second, and
Pat scores again. Stephens hits to
Tucker, getsfirston fielder's choice,
while Tucker forces Bailey out at
second. Gregory strikes out. Score

Carthy' hits to Stanley who throws

Carthy at second, Gregory throws
wild to first, Tucker tries third and
is out on Oldham's beautiful throw

ton.' Slocumb gives Nichols that
tired feeling with a clean hit. Gra
ham W. hits to Tucker who forces
Paul out at second to Long, Gra
ham W. takes second on Long's
wild throw to Tucker. Graham E.

makes a base hit, and Long pushes
the ball to George who tosses him
out at first.
5th. Stanley is thrown out at first
by Capt. Nash. -Oldham works his
eye for four balls. Bailey hits to
Long who fails to stop the wheels
in his head long enough to get any
body out. Stephens smashes a high
one to McCarthy who doubles Old
ham on second. With proper coach
ing Oldham would have been safe.
Boston Duffy ets base on balls,
but is doubled up by Bailey's beau
tiful catch of McCarthy's liner.
Tucker also walks off with four bad
ones, but Collins closes the inning
with a high fly to center.
6th. Gregory picks out a slow
one and lets it hit him. Slocumb
makes a beautiful drive to center
for one base and advances Gregory
to second. .Graham W. hits to Long
who forces Slocumb out at second.
Gregory at third, Graham W
first. Graham E. hits a curv
fly to Tucker and is out by a great

ground. McAlister out on foul fly

easy fly. Ganzel get first on Bai
lcys error, and pitcher- Nichols
