LOiT YUSTER DAY'S GAMF.
Hcme Team Drops Another
Game to Beatrice.
Ti e following account of the
Plattsmouth-Ifeatrice game is from
the Lincoln Journal:
"The Plattsmouth team 'saved
their bacon' anil a shut out by Gate
wood's men to-day by getting a
base on balls and three timely sin
gles, all in the last half of the
ninth. It was a fielders' gamejniost
ly, Myers being touched up for
twelve hits, four of them two bag
gers and one three 'sacker'. Snap
per Kennedy was a trifle nervous
on this his first appearance at his
old home and made an error that
nearly knocked the props from un
der the grand stand. The grounds
were in excellent condition and a
fine game was put up by both
teams, the local sluggers doing the
work. In the fifth inaing Beatrice
got live hits, only two of which
were as small as singles."
