Ted Trent (Chicago) vs. Max Manning (Indy)
The deadly duo of Pete Hill and Willie Wells provided most of the offense that Indianapolis needed to beat Chicago in the fourth game of the tournament.
Hill reached in the bottom of the first on a Dick Lundy error, promptly stole second and score on Wells first homer of the day. The pair teamed up again in the the bottom of the fourth when Hill singled to lead off the inning, stole second again and scored again on Wells second dinger of the day. That was all of the offense Max Manning would need as he had no problem shutting down Chicago for most of the day.
The mighty Giants finally scratched a run across in the sixth when slugger Chino Smith doubled home Turkey Stearnes who had singled with two outs. Chicago scored two more runs in the ninth when Willard Brown cranked a two run homer to score Smith.
Indianapolis roughed up Trent for six runs in the first four innings, but then Trent eleven of the next twelve batters before being pulled for a pinch hitter in the eighth inning. Heavy Johnson homered in the ninth for Indy.
