Chick Evans Still Hopes to
MALLOY LOSES ALL
SENSE OF DIRECTION
Pnascs Kftrlit Giants, Hits Trio

MU TEAM HITS SOME TOO
Why Is a Strike? Because the
Umpire Says So, Closing
Houston, Tex.. March 2. The ex
traordinary nllilnt'KS of Malloy, the Hous
ton pitcher, made to-day's game easy for
the Giants, who won by a score of 11 to
2. The Houston pitcher bent eight men
iilong on balls, made a wild pitch and
heaved a few misdirected pitches against
the personH of batsmen. He hit three,
ami as eight of the Giants who reached
llrst by one or th other of the agencies
iiumcd also leached the plate tho
wretched marksmanship of Malloy went
lar to malm the guine. one sided.
Thu tlliiiit inserted a few helpful hits
In the I hick of Malloy'n trunsgrreslons
and I'umplcled thu rounil trip prowling
thereby Aftir two men hud been passed
in the 111 l Inning Larry Doyle gouged
Malloy for u three b-gger. Following
a cluster of ti.itt.iy und fielding errors
In the sixth Hube Mjirnu.ird slid a hit
through thelntleld Tor a lounilup of tallies.
After two men had been lilt and one hud
walked In tho seventh Murray got In u
safe thrust. In the eighth Inning thero
were a couple of strolls and safe hits
sandwiched In by Fromme, Kktcher and
ilerUIe. . , .
In all this conglomeration tho Giants
were running bases regardless. They
took big leads on the suffering Malloy
and light of foot niched their way from
base to base. Doyle stole third twice
while Malloy was winding up and Merkle
utole four baes.
On the New York side the game was
well played except when the visitors
compounded errors In the sixth Inning.
Mowry made ii two btut hit. the second
swat off Maniuard. and Davis rolled to
Snodgrass. As usual HiiodurusH was In
too big a hurry to throw. He llred over
Merkle's head and Mowry bcored. The
latter would have been out If McLean,
whose work at the plate was poor, had
ffoue through the formality of touching
the runner when Merkle fielded the ball
home. SelU made u hit which llescher
booted. Davis thereby taking third. Mc
Donald filed to Murray, whose perfect
throw was dropped by McLean while
touching the man dusting In from third.
Aside from this outburst of defen
sive delirium tho (Hunts fielded without
a slip, und they were fielding behind good
pitching. Houston didn't make a hit oft
Marquard until thu fifth Inning. The
Rube had them popping files. He got
eleven that av in his six Innings. A
running catch by llescher was a fino piny
and nnotner wan made by Doyle and
Merkle. Doylo grappled with a scorch
ing liner which he jumped for but was
Unable to hold. He threw to first, how
ever, and Merkle retired tho hitter with
m one handed clutch of Larry's wide peg.
Fletcher and the umpire hud a dispute.
It didn't last long.
"What for?" yelled Fletcher at Ar
biter Gardner when the latter proclaimed
"Because I called It," retorted Gardner.
Which, as a retort caustic and reason
convincing, couldn't bo beat. The score:
