KRUEGER HITS A HOME RUN Omaha and Wichita cut a double bill fifty-fifty yesterday afternoon, the Rourkei nabbing the first event, 12 to 8, and the hostile tribe from Kansas capturing. the second one, 5 to 2. In the meantime Lincoln walluped the Grizzlies and gained half a game on our athletes. ' Both of the combats were wild and wooly affairs and it would take a mas ter to describe them. The first game was a see-saw affair in which the Rourkes took the lead several times and then tried to thrust the game back upon the Wolves. Lou North . started for Omaha and after hurling four nifty rounds, blew up in the fifth and started to blow again in the eighth, at which time Manager Marty derricked him and summoned O'Toole to the rescue. O'Toole pro ceeded to fill the bases by walking two men and Marty sent out 'the 5. O. S. for Otto Merz to prepare, but O'Toole steadied and came home with the bacon. Krueger gave the Rourkes a good start in the opening stanza of the first game by clouting the pill .over the left field fence for a home run with the runway cluttered up with two of Pa's great athletes. A triple by Burg in the seventh also helped and errors by the Wolves intermingled with Rourke hits did the rest. Miller Oeti On. Ray Miller went to bat five times in the first game and-got on every time. He hit once, got a life on an error once and walked three timet. He scored four runs. The second game was sad. , Harry Krause pitched nice ball, but his pals kicked the game away for him. The Rourkes and Wolves tangle tgain this afternoon. There will only be one game and It will start it 3:15. Savages Don Batting Togs; Boosters Lose Det Moines, Aug. TS.
