Chiefs Pull Back to .500 With Win Over Pioneers
The home crowd had a good time watching the St. Louis Pioneers and Chicago Chiefs get after it.

The Chicago Chiefs defeated the St. Louis Pioneers, 5-1, at Whitney Park. Chicago center fielder Dode Foster had a superb performance. He was 2 for 3 with a home run and a walk. He scored 2 runs and drove in 3. Chicago pitcher George Thomas got the win. He's now 3-4. Don Orr was tagged with the loss.

Niagara Falls, New York-born Ron Rattigan came through in the clutch. In the bottom of the seventh, with runners on 2nd and 3rd and the Chiefs trailing 1-0, he hit a 2-run single to right-center to put Chicago on top.

"It was just a matter of executing," said Chicago manager Joe Ward.

The triumph puts Chicago at 40-40 for the season.
