O’NEILL WINS THREE
STRAIGHT FROM VERDIGRE
O’Neill won its eleventh game in
the last twelve played and the last
of five straight Sunday afternoon by
defeating Verdigre at Verdigre by a
score of 5 to 4. It was the third de
feat Verdigre has suffered at the
hands of O’Neill, the first by a score
of 14 to 9, the second by a score of
I to 0 and this one by the score men
tioned. Incidentally all three defeats
were administered to the Knox county
men by Ed. Allen, O’Neill’s star
southpaw, and it was the second suc
cessive time in the series of three
games that Mr Allen has humiliated
Wiggington, the crack Schuyler and
Omaha hurler now under contract
with the St. Louis Cardinals, Wig
gington pitching the last two games
for Verdjgie. The battle was a hotly
contested one from start to finish, be
ing a battle of the moundsmen. The
game was witnessed by a large crowd
and the story of the victory is five
sacrifice hits by O’Neill to one by
Verdigre, four of the O’Neill sacri
fices bringing in runs and the fifth*
advancing the runner to be brought in
by a clean hit following. The two
hurlers retired 18 men by the strike
out route, Wiggington striking out
II and Allen 7. Hits off Wiggington
were 8 and off Allen 10.
