Orr.iha. 3, Ies Moines, 2.
Omihi walloped It ancient enemies from
D Moines Thursday by the same score
i the (lay before and attain put a crimp
In the wise ones who thought Wednesday
a sort of accident. Those printers who
work for Mr. Higglns, the big Chicago
printer who runs the Pes Moines team
for amusement had to take their medicine
and although they put up a game fight,
could not bring home the bacon.
t'mp. Haskell pronounced the two games
as the best he has seen this year and
most of the fans agree with him. It was
a battle royal from the start to the finish
and nMther side had won until the very
last man was out In the ninth Inning, for
!es Moines had a couple on bases when
Collta-an hit a fly which Welch gobbled.
The i o'clock closing law does not go
Into effect until after July 1, so the Rourke
family thought It advisable to administer
the Keeley cure to Des Moines, the same
s has been done to all teams as they
:ame along. It had been reported that
'..ang was to oppose Keeley, but that was
changed and Lang was reserved for today
nd Miller sent to the hill.
Miller pitched a magnificent game and
Ou'led out of several most uncomfortable
loles. In one Inr.lng he had the bases full
with one out. when he struck out Slugger
Rill and Perrlne grounded to Kane. Miller
truck out eight men and allowed but six
hits. His wlldnees, however cost the win
Heeler Uteady .Throughout.
Kfeley wss steady from start to finish,
ilihougi) two doubles and a triple were
made off his delivery. The first Inning
was one, two, three for Des Moines, but
Otr.fiha started as though a million runs
were to be made: Plsher beat out a bunt.
He also did the- rame thing later In the
game. Fisher then stole second and went
to third on a passed ball. King walked and
Fisher scored on Welch's single, Kane
executed a neat sacrifice and King scored
on Schlpke'a grounder to Dwyer.
Des. Moines tied the score In the second
Inning. With one out Kane dropped
Franck's throw of Dalton's grounder and
he went to second on N'lehoff's single. Wil
liam scored them both by a two-base
drive against the left field fence.
The honors were even until the sixth
when Omaha made the winning run. Cap.
tain r rancK drew a pass and went to
second on a passed hall. Gondlng sacrl
flced him to third. Keeley struck out and
Flhher gave him the chance to score by
beating out a grounder to abort, which
was handled without a bobble. Fisher heat
out two of those Infield balls Wednesday
and two yesterday.
les Moines made several bids to tie the
came, but did not aucceed, aa Keeley re
fused to weaken.
Today will be ladles day and the women
probably will be treated to a battle be

Fisher Is getting te be the wonder of the
league on the bases. He Is stealing bases
every day. aa kail,. as beating out short
Perrlne is all over the field and his
double play could only have been made
by fast and heady work. Schlpke caught
a short bunted popup and Perrlne was on
first to complete the double.
Kane's error was the only one of the
three msde by Omaha which wai. costly.
It started the trouble In the aecond Inning.
Perrlne Juggled a fast grounder and Cap
tain Francs, failed to hold a grounder right
in his hands.
Perrlne1 drive in the fifth inning would
have scared three runs If Dwyer had not
been playing deep for Just such a hit. If
hu had been playing In a little closer the
ball would have sailed over his head and
three riuin would have scored.
Des Moines started a ninth Inning rally
which was short lived. Nlehoff had made
two hits and the fans looked for him to
do something, but he only hit to Keeley.
Williams drew a pass and Kerner, who
batted for Shea, reached first on Franck's
error. Mertens was sent to bat for Miller
and ha -looked big enough to knock the
ball out' i.f the lot, but Instead he only hit
to Keeley. It was all up to Colltgan. and
