PETALUMA 6 YOSEMITE 0
(By Sport Hicks)
The Leghorns hung the sign of the Indian on the Yosemite Market nine of San Francisco Sunday, on the home grounds, the score being 6 to 0. Despite the miserable weather a goodly number of enthusiasts attended.
The wind blew a gale and at times it was impossible to discern objects across the diamond.
The players had to guess at things a good deal of the time.
The game was an interesting one and. bristling over with high class ball.
Herbert Suhr, who was on the firing line for the home clan, twirled a corking good game. He has a free and easy delivery and makes little effort of pitching.
Suhr had a world of speed, nice breaking benders and a slow ball which had the visitors’ batters nearly breaking their backs trying to connect with it. Suhr granted but seven interspersed hits and allowed but one batter to perambulate. Suhr also demonstrated that his vision was keen by rapping out two doubles and a single.
Hall, who started the chucking for the Yosemite Markets, had nothing but his health and his fingers around the ball and what the home sluggers did to his delivery was a plenty. He retired in the second frame after the local nine had garnered six hits and scored four runs. Willis, who started the game in left field, took his place on the mound and pitched swell ball, allowing but five scattered singles and walked nary a batter.
The home team played a fast, snappy game in the field and made but two foozles, a dropped fly by Fuller and a muff of a thrown ball by Glynn.
Suhr scintillated by apprehending O’Brien’s terrific liner with his gloved hand which had all the earmarks of a hit. The catch was loudly applauded.
Luchessi at the torrid sack handled seven chances without an error. Several of his stops and lightning throws to first bordered on the sensational.
Tobin at short field and Glynn at the keystone made several fine stops of torrid grounders and Capt. Hadermann at the initial sack performed like a “big leaguer.” He accepted twelve chances without a misplay.
Piezzi’s catch of a hard line drive from Hall’s bat after a lively chase was a looloo. Tobin, Glynn and Hadermann collaborated in two fast double plays and Luchessi, Glynn and Hadermann in one.
Hyman starred for the visitors by spearing Piezzi’s liner with one-hand, which had all the appearance of a hit. Villa, Hyman and O’Brien engineered a fast double play. The Yosemite Markets are charged with but five errors.
The home team put the game on ice in the first inning. Fuller, lead-off hitter, walked and went to second on Tobin’s sacrifice. Hadermann’s bingle to right sent Fuller to third base. Hadermann stole second. Fuller and Hadermann crossed the disk on Glenn’s bingle to left. Glynn went to second on Willis’ throw to the plate, Luchessi rapped out a hit to right and Glynn advanced to third. Piezzi hit to Hall and Glynn, who attempted to score was trapped between bases and run down by Hall, Hyman. Villa and O’Brien, the latter making the putout. Luchessi went to third and Piezzi to second on the play. Agius walked, filling the bags. Suhr rapped out a hit to left scoring Luchessi and Piezzi. The inning ended by Dittmann breezing.
The home team scored its fifth run in the second act. Fuller started it with a two-bagger to center and scored, on Tobin’s double to left. At this juncture Hall was derricked and Willis supplanted him on the slab. Hall played the remainder of the game in right field. Hadermann hit to Schwartz, who pegged to Hyman and Tobin was touched out. Glynn flied out to Beck. Luchessi tore off his second hit, Hadermann going to third’. Piezzi hit to Scbwartz, who threw to Willard forcing Luchessi, ending the inning. The home team scored its sixth run in the fourth seance. Fuller advanced to second on a double – barreled error, when Schwartz fumbled his grounder and made a wild heave to first. Tobin lined out to Schwartz. Hadermann hit to Schwartz, who threw to Hyman to get FuJler going to third. Fuller beat the throw. Hadermann filched second. Glynn hit to Willis and Fuller who attempted to score, was run down by Willis, Hyman and Villa and tagged out Willis making the put out.
