Yankees Rally in Ninth and Defeat Indians by Margin of One Run at Polo Grounds
Homer by Wally Pipp Wins
Close Game for Hug's Men
New Yorkers One Run Behind and With Man on
Base When the Yankee First Baseman Sends
the Ball to Right Center, Deciding the Contest
By W. O. McGeehan
They used to call him Pipp the Pickler, hut there was no apparent
reason for the monicker this season until yesterday at the Polo Grounds.
With the Yanks one run behind and one man on base, Pipp cracked a ball
to the right center corner of the lot. The Pickler?to give him the title
he regained yesterday?dashed around the four corners like a Nova Scotia
moose that had seen Irvin S. Cobb for the first time, and drove in another
run ahead of him, making the final score Yankees 4, Cleveland 3.
It was a subdued crowd and a sub-^
du??d band of baseball players that ap?
peared at the Polo Grounds yesterday.
The shadow of big league baseball's
first tragedv could not be shaken off.
Flags at the place were half-masted
and the players of both teams wore
mourning bands in memory of Ray j
Chapman, fatally injured there Mon?
day. The game, the pennant race and
all the things that seemed vital when
this series opened suddenly seemed
petty and t'utile.
The Indians played without Tris
Speaker, who had left for Cleveland
to be present at the funeral of his
dead friend and teammate. Chap?
man's place at bat was taken by
Wambsganss, and his place in the
field was taken by Lunte, the recruit
who went in when Chapman was
When Wambsganss came up for the
first time there was a hush in the j
park. Everybody recalled the tragedy
of .Monday. Then there was a little '
applause. The crowd vaguely tried to
express the wish that the Cleveland
team would not suffer by the loss of
the dead player.
Sergeant Jim Bagby, the best of
the Indian pitchers and the most f
fective against the Yanks, was pitted
against our Mr. .lohn Picus Quinn, the
eminent spit bailor. Bagby was
plastered in the seventh and rather
emphatically in the ninth. John
Picus Quinn was evicted in the
seventh to make room for a pincher
and Rip Collins finished the game.
Ruth went hitless throughout the
The Yankees got the jump on Ser-1
geant Jim Bagby in the opening in?
ning. With Ward out, Peckinpaugh
cracked a single to center. This peeved !
the Sergeant so much that he heaved i
one wild pitch to Kuth. sending Peck-1
inpaugh to second. Ruth finally got
his baso on balls, and Pratt's long fly
to center gave Peckinpaugh a chance
to make third. Duffy Lewis, who cracks
them when they will do the most good,
drove a single to center and scored I
The Indians tied the score in the.
fourth inning. Wambsganss, who has
bren getting few hits against the
Yanks this year, opened the inning
with a slash through the box to center
field. Jamioson's out sent Wamby to
second. Larry Gardner drove a lung
hit to left center, and the gent with j
the name full of consonants scored. |
Triple for Wamby
Sergeant Jim Bagby himself caused'
Mr. John Picus Quinn no little annoy-1
anee in the fifth, the Sergeant opening ?
the session with a two-base bit to left
center. With Graney out, Wambsganss'
came up airain and plastered a triple
that caromed off the right field wall
an?! caused Babe Ruth to do some con?
siderable gyrating about in his terri?
tory to nail it.
The third run of the Indians came
in the sixth and '.cas the soie property
of Elmer Smith, who has peeved the
Yankees upon several occasions during!
their visil t i Cleveland by pounding
them over the wall of League Park in :
that city. Smith drove a homer that
bounced against the concrete of the
upper tier ?n the right field stands and
then bounced out again.
The Yanks started a ?lrive in the :
seventh, but some reckless base run?
ning on the part of Walter Pipp I
checked it temporarily. George Duffy
Lewis, the Beau Brummet, initiated >
the rally with a two-bagger to left.
P'.pp singled to center and tried to!
stretch it into a double. Lewis scored,
but 1'ipp was nailed by the return at
s? cond base.
Ping Bodie, the Wonderful Wop, sin- i
glc-d. bul was f? reed by Ruel. Then
Lar.k Bob Meusel, with his crippled
leg, was wheeled out to pinch hit l'or
John Picus Quinn. Meusel showed up
in his "cits" as the game started, but
went into the clubhouse and put on his
uniform on the chance of being needed
in the pinch. He struck out, and the
rally ended with considerable abrupt?
The Indians were leading by one run
in the ninth, and it looked as though
Sergeant Bagby had the Yanks- stopped
when Pratt, the first Yank up, was j
thrown out bv Gardner. But the in?
domitable G. Duffy Lewis plastered the i
ball past third for a single. Francis
Xavier O'Doul, the pearl of the Pacific
Coasters, was sent in to run for Lewis.
Then came Pipp, who instantly re?
gained his I? st title of Pipp the Pickler.
Bill Pipp, the eminent hardware sales?
man of (Iran?! Rapids,*Mich., and other
point.; West, should have been on the
scene here, for Bill has been looking all
year for Walter Pipp to ! it a homer.;
Pipp the Pickler drove the ball hard to !
right center, and the pellet rolled on to
the fence, while O'Doul scored and j
Pipp came dashing in after him. It ?
Was a home run in the ninth and the
homer that won the game.
Giants and Phillies to
Replay Part of Game
John A. Heydler, president of the
Nation,-.1 League, has ordered the latter
par! of the afternoon game of July 5
between New York and Philadelphia,
whtch was protested by the Philadel?
phia team, played over at the Polo
Grounds. The seventh, eighth and ninth
innings will be replayed prior to the
scheduled game of September -1 be?
tween the saine teams.
The state of the game will be the
first half of the seventh inning, with
Stengel on third and Fletcher on
second with two out and the score
6 to 0 in favor of New York. Fletcher,
who was removed front the game be
cause of an altercation with the um?
pire, arising from tins play, will be
allowed to resume his position. .The
club standing, as well as the player
averages, will stand pending the
official termination of the game.
The protest of Philadelphia arose
from tho following play:
One man out, Stengel on second and
Fletcher on first. Wrightstone hit a
high fly back of short which Umpire
Harrison ruled an infield fly and de?
clared the batsman out. Left1 Fielder
Burns, apparently not hearing the
umpire, made an attempt to trap the
ball, Bancroft moving out of his way.
The ball fell to the ground, Stengel ad
vancing to third. Fletcher was called
out when the ball was fielded to Doyle
on second. Base Umpire McCorrpick
declaring the runr.Cr forced out.

A Square Deal for Cari Mays
By W. O. McGeehan
There ir> a disposition in a small part of tho baseball world to be
cruelly unfair to Carl Mays, the Yankee pitcher whose tragic ill fortune
it was to throw the ball that caused the death of Ray Chapman. To
intimate in any way that this was not an accident is cowardly and un?
When certain players declare that they will not play unless Mays is
put out of the game they apparently* wish it inferred that the killing of
Ray Chapman was not an accident. Mays, it seems, is not popular either
with players or umpires in the American League, and this movement
against him seems part of baseball jealousies and intrigues dating back
to the dispute over Mays which resulted in one of those tempests in a
teapot which are called great baseball wars.
It is reported that among the players Ty Cobb, of the Detroit team,
is one who is demanding that Mays be put out of baseball. Such a proposi?
tion coming from the Ty Cobb, who came very close to crippling Charles
Herzog, another baseball player, for life, seems decidedly out of place.
According to The Associated Dress, Umpires Evans and Dinneen
issued a statement which said in part: "No pitcher in the American
League resorted to trickery more than Carl Mays in attempting to rough
a bail in order to get a break en it which would make it more difficult to
hit." Is this a crime? It is the business of baseball pitchers to make
baseballs more difficult to hit.
The Associated Press further reports that regardless of any general
action these player? ?TMuld not go to bat against May again. The show?
down on these reports will come when the Detroit team visits the Polo
(?rounds. It will be up to the. president of the American League to prc
| serve discipline for the sake of the game and for the sake of sportsmanship.
Tris Speaker, manager of the Cleveland team and a close friend of
| the dead player, declared even in the moment when he was overcome by
grief over the tragedy, that there should be no bitterness. The splendid
; young man's death dwarfs considerations of pennant races and matters of
that sort, but there is no reason why this other young man whose.' ill luck
made him the Innocent instrument of Ray Chapman's death should be a
victim of the jealousies, intrigues and cruel short-sightedness of. baseball
Tris Speaker's prompt recognition of the fact that baseball should
be just to Carl Mays only confirmed the opinion that Speaker was a man
and a player of character and discretion. The others merely are showing
how petty they can be. It is unfortunate for Mays that he has not been
as popular as the dead player, but he must not be sacrificed because of his
unpopularity. The president of the American League must see that he
gets a square deal for the sake of the game.

Luck isn't so much a matter of what happens as how you take it.
Holding the Top
Within the next few weeks?or even few days?two energetic young
Americans face a formidable assignment in defending their titles.
One is Bill Johnston, who won the tennis championship of America
last summer at Forest Hills.
The other is Dave Herr?n, who landed the golf championship at Oak
Both played brilliantly to win their titles and both have proved their
gameness under fire.
But they are facing exceptionally keen opposition now with steeper I
odds to face. Some one to win this nexfc tennis championship must beat
Tilden, and Tilden is a different man from the Tilden of a year ago. Then
he was a brilliant player with an amazing number of strokes,but a trifle,
lacking in confidence. Nineteen hundred and twenty has lifted him from ]
this rut and only super-tennis will be enough to break him down.
Herron at Roslyn early in September faces a field that will consist of
Chick Evans, Francis Ouimet, Bobby Jones, Cyril Tolley, Wethered, Tommy ;
Armour, Lord Charles Hope and eight or ten others of ranking caliber.
With the British a i.i Canadians swooping down, the field will be the finest
that ever fought for the title.
Herron face? a harder fight than Johnston, as he? is a younger cham?
pion with a greater number of stars in his way.
The Duffer's Lament
i 'Twos ever tints since I could tell,
My game has been an ate fid blot;
When I ivaj putting very well
1 could not hit a mashie shot.
And likewise when my drives were straight,
And my long brassies cleared each rut,
Yea, when my mashie shots were great,
J could not sink the silly putt.
One main point of Mathewson's greatness was that it took him less
than a year to discover that only that part of his stuff which he could get
over the plate meant anything worth while.
On Busting In
When I irish to break into your column
I don't have to wait for a hunch.
I just sit down, somber and solemn,
And copy a meter from "Punch."
Then I work in Babe Ruth or Jo* Jackson,
Although Ted Ray or Tilden vi/Z do,
Atid I sign it, with great satisfaction,
And send it to you. R. K.
Cleveland, with a great manager and a fine ball club, has again found
i the value of pitching through her lack of winning stars. She has found
that two men can hardly carry on a complete championship fight. Cleve?
land has had to bank upon Bagby and Coveleskie, where the White Sox had
: Cicotte, Williams, Kerr and Faber, and where the Yanks had Shawkey,
i Quinn, Mays, Collins, Thormahlen and others. One thing or another has
wrecked Cleveland's pennant hopes for thirty years. If she loses this
j time it will be through the lack of one more winning pitcher. Led by
? Speaker, team batting around .810, she has had everything else.
Both the Giants and the White Sox spend the better part of the last
: month at home. Both have pitching staffs in fine condition to go the route.
j If Cleveland, the Yanks, Cincinnati and Brooklyn hope to get in it will
I only be by the tallest hustling they have in stock to the end of the race.

was held late this afternoon at t
track, following the conclusion of t
racing, at which it is believed the ba
were let down to several more or le
prominent jockeys who have been -
the ground for Some time.
1: never has been th? policy of t
Jockey Club ta let the public in on i
secrets, and a discrecc silence is bei
maintained in this case. Nothing <
ficially was announced. It has be
learned on excellent authority, ho
ever, that Willie Knapp is soon to
seen in silks again, as well as Char:
Peake, who was put on the ground
the result of a peculiar race at Empi
City two years ago. Peake, it is undi
stood, was called before the star cha
her session to give guaranties of go
faith. Whether or not Johnny Loftu
case was given a tumble is one of i
secretest of all secrets locked in I
breasts of the solons.
