CONWAY — In a contest marked by loose fielding and erratic pitching, Ouachita took the second game with the State Normal, 15 to 9. Neither Savage nor Ellis had any control, the former passing four and hitting three, while Ellis walked nine and “beaned” two. The visitors, however, outbatted the Normal team, and this accounts in the main for their victory. Savage’s wildness was responsible for five scores by the locals in the fifth, when he allowed but one hit.

The Normal team held their own until the eighth, when they blew up and five errors, two bases on balls and three hits were bunched for a total of eight runs. With the game stowed away, the visitors eased up again in the ninth, when a single, a base on balls and a triple resulted in three runs. Ellis showed the effects of his Saturday’s game and was easy for Ouachita, while Savage, barring his lack of control, mystified the Normal batsman. Landers’ catch of Sammons’ line drive to center was the redeeming feature of the game.
