MEDFORD WINS BALL GAME FROM GRANTS PASS

From the spectator's standpoint, Sunday's game with Grants Pass, before a crowd of 300 fans, was perhaps the best of the season. It was even, marked with clean fielding and better, there was an entire absence of the crabbing that has marred the others of this season's games. The credit for this may be given largely to Umpire Patton.

Grants Pass led off, making two runs in the second inning and following with one in the third. In the second half of the third Medford rallied and tied the score. Grants Pass boosted their end of the score with two in the sixth and one in the seventh, but again Medford came back, Sieberts banging out a three-bagger with two on, coming in himself on a sacrifice. This put Medford in the lead 7-6.

In the eighth Miles prevented Grants Pass from evening the score by a sensational big league stop. A fast drive came down between first and second. Miles, running full speed picked it out of the air with one hand and retired the runner. In the eighth Medford piled up two more and at the end, the score stood 9-6 in favor of Medford.

Medford's heavy hitters showed up well, Wilson getting four hits from four times up and McIntyre getting three hits from four times up. The fielding of both teams was exceptional, Grants Pass showing a little better work.

Batteries were — Grants Pass, Pernoll and Baker. Medford, Sieberts and Force.

Next Sunday the Medford team and a large crowd of fans will go to Weed on a special train and the Sunday following a return game will be played in Medford. Manager Brevard is fulfilling his promise to give good, clean, fast ball and the games deserve a better attendance.

GOLD HILL NUGGETS

Mr. and Mrs. Marion Lance passed through Gold Hill Sunday afternoon on their way to their mine, expecting to stop on their return trip with her mother, at Foots creek and take her back with them to their home in Medford.
