Has Most Likely Baseball Team in Camp. In w h at was probably the best ball game ever held in Camp W a d sw o rth, the 106th In­ fantry virtually won the Division Champion­ ship by defeating the 107th Infantry by the score of one to nothing. It was a pitcher’s battle betw e e n McAullif, of the Brooklyn contingent, and W illiams, of the m en from the 54th Brigade. The game was featured w ith fine work of the outfielders, the best play being m ade by Fom o sa when he ran back fully tw e n ty yards and caught a scream ing liner hot off the bat of Ecksley. McAullif worked him self out of a bad hole in the first inning when w ith the bases full and one down, he retired the side score­ less. W illiam s w e n t him one b e tter in the second w h en he ran up against about the toughest proposition th a t any pitcher has faced around these parts. Bases full and Cotter, the old Chicago N a tional League catcher, up. C o tter took two good swings and let th e last one whizz over the pan w ith­ out offering at it. McAullif also hit nothing but the wind. In the fourth, Gresebach reached first on an error by Baynor, Cotter drew a pass and McAullif scored H a thorne w ith a hit to right. The batting honors for the day w e n t to Onderdonk, who secured three safe drives. The pitching crown goes to McAullif. A fter the first inning he held the losers in the palm of his hand and let them down w ith three hits and struck out eleven. W il­ liam s vras in hot w a ter tim e and again, and ills delivery was nicked for five safe drives. Cotter played Ms usual fine game. The 106th celebrated the defeating of their old rivals, the 107th, as the w inning of the Division Championship. Twenty-four innings w ithout a single earned run is the record McAullif has estab­ lished. He took the mound against the 105th in the fourth inning\ with the score 6 to 0 against him and held them runless. In the first gam© w ith the 107th he rom ped to victory 10-3, all three runs on errors, and Saturday not a m an saw the plate. 106th In f a n tr y : ab,. r . h. PO. e.
