Norfolk Wins From Winside.
Norfolk , 3 ; Winside , 2.
With the score 2 to 1 in favor of
Winside in the ninth inning , South for
Norfolk three-sacked and was brought
liome to tie the score by Hoffman ,
who reached first on Ramsey's error.
Boveo hit and brought Hoffman home ,
winning the game.
This all happened in the last of the
ninth inning In yesterday's fast game
with Winside on the driving park diamond
mend , and although the attendance
was poor the game was so exciting
from start to finish that the noise of
the few fans equalled that of a 400
Bovee pitched a "no hit" game until
the eighth inning , when Pomeroy sin
gled. Pomeroy singled again In the
ninth and Simon followed with the
same kind , making three hits in the
two innings two by the same man.
This , however , ended the hitting on
Winside's list. Fox , the "spit ball'
artist who has given the fans an ugly
taste with his exhibitions with the
slippery elm , pitched a fine game. But
seven hits were taken from him , start
Ing with a three-bagger by Koplln in
the second inning. This hit looked like
a homo run , but Koplin reached third
easily and on Durkeo's error ho stum
bled a few times and reached the home
slab safely. Pomeroy played a good
game in the catcher's box and proved
to bo Winside's heaviest hitter. Fox
struck out eleven men.
Something to a "near" rag chewing
match was started in the fourth In
ning when Winslde delayed the game
by threatening to quit. Krahn had hit
safely and South was struck out. Kop
lln sacrificed but beat out the slow
ono to first , where ho was called out
by Umpire Davenport. Koplin , ac
cording to rules had possession of the
line , but Ramsey stood directly on
the bag. Koplin waved his arms and
HntiiMi-y was slow In tin owing home.
Krahn ahvlng touched the pinto for n
score fair nnd square. Wlnsldc quit
Immediately , declaring ; Koplin had In
terfered with Ramsey. Norfolk lost
no tluio In making satisfactory nr-
rangi'inents with Manager Simon , who
agreed to lot Krahn back to third and
Koplin got another chance at bat.
This , however , did not help Norfolk.
Koplln flow out to Simon , who In a
spectacular long throw doubled Krahn
out to Dtirkcc.
Some League Ball ,
From that tlmo on the game was
anybody's and both teams buckled
down to real league playing. In the
seventh WInsldo tied the score and
threatened to score more , but between
Boveo and Hoffman Norfolk pulled out
of a bad hole. In the eighth Wlnsldo
filled the bases two times and two
times the fast work of Hoffman , Kop
lln , Watson nnd Boveo pulled things
back to rights. In the first of the
ninth Wlnsldo hit twice nnd on nn er
ror they scored. The fans wore wild
In their rooting when Norfolk wont to
bat for the last tlmo. The end was an
exciting one. South struck nt Fox's
spit ball twice and missed It. The
third tlmo ho connected and the ball
narrowly missed the "box of cigars"
sign and rolled Into the tall grass for
a three-bagger. Wlnsldo threw far
but South was safe on third. Koplln ,
who was Imported from Pllger , was
looked for to bring South homo from
third , and although ho lost no tlmo in
connecting , the ball went high in the
air and Pomoroy took it In. Watson ,
who had been playing an errorless
game on first , allowed Wynkoop , on
the "bench , " to take his place at bat ,
but Fox throw him out with a "spit-
tor. " With two down the fans looked
down in the mouth , but Hoffman con
nected and Ramsey 'fumbled. South
came home and Hoffman held first ,
stealing second a moment later.
The score was tied and when Boveo
wont to bat there were many cheers
for the ox-Norfolk boy who is a pos
sible sheriff of Pierce county. Bovee
connected hard and the ball slipped
through Welsh on second and Hoffman
came homo witli the winning score.
Norfolk goes to Winside for a game
Friday. Ex-Capt , Glissman was ono
of the strongest rooters for the Nor
folk team and was one of the most
exulted in the sensational finish.
