Patton Base Ball Team Has
Winning Streak.
Osceola Lost Two Games and Philipsburg
One to the Locals—Toss of Penny Respon-
sible for Only Defeat the Past Week—Ex-
citing Fitteen 1nning Contest,
Patton base ball club shut out the
strong Punxsutawney nine on Satur-
day at Athletic Park. The score w
5 to 0, while the other shut out was ac-
complished to the tune of 8 to 0.

a wild throw to third let
for the visitors. The ball was thrown
into the diamond by a fielder and de- |
liberately stopped by the umpire with |
his hands, the latter being under the |
impression that there was no one on a
base. The umpire did not pick up the

ball with his hands, A runner on third
\ came home and scored while the ball
; was at the umpire’s feet. The pitcher
was backing up a base at the time. The
umpire refused to render a decision. |
Base ball authorities everywhere are
unanimous in the opinion that the run-
ner should have gone back to third
base, but Captain “Kid”? Williams could
not see it in that light and the Patton
boys magnanimously and foolishly con~ |
sented to “pitch pennies’ to settle the
matter. Of course, Punxsutawney’s
proverbial good luck prevailed and the
score counted. The visitors we
whitewashed every other inning, while
Patton made a run in the seventh and |
one in the ninth, losing the contest on |
the toss of a penny. [7
