Take Two Games From Chi
cago Browns at Western
League Park. -
Before a wildly ecstatic crowd of
more tha 3,500 fans the Murphy-
Did-Its, crack local semi-pros, yes
terday afternoon copped both ends
of a double-header from the Chicago
Browns at Western league park, 7
to 3 and 5 to 4.
The duskv-hued diamond artists
started out in the second frame by
tapping Madden's . delivery for two
singles and a double, which netted
them two tallies. '
The Murphys came back strong
enough in the fourth to shove .four
counters across and from then on
were 'never in danger. Madden
whiffed seven and passed but one,
allowing five hits, while Harper,
heaving for the darkies, whiffed
seven, allowed eight hits, hit one and
walked a brace.
The game itself was a thriller, as
the Murphys knotted the count in
the fifth after the Browns had gar
nered a pair, and then went three
nicks ahead iohe sixth frame. .
The Browns threatened in the
seventh, when Shelton's. double and
Kelly s safe slam to left, coupled
with a pair of Murphy errors, made
the count 4 to S. ,
