NATIONALS' REGULARS TRIM
YANNIGANS BY BIG SCORE
Weird Contest Results in Lopsided Victory for Mc
Aleer's Pet Aggregation, 13 to 4.
By WILLIAM PEET.
Atlanta. Ga-, March 25 After a rest of
four days. Manager McAleer sent In his
prlro southpaws. Bill Otey and Dolly
Gray, to work for the regulars and the
Shamrocks this morning, and for the
first time since the series was inaugu
rated the big team came out on top in a
decisive manner by 13 to 4
The contest was a weird sort of an af
fair, but one which easily demonstrates
how ball games are lost. In the regulars'
half of the sixth inning half a dozen
runs were scored on one measly little
hit, a near-bunt by Henry, but Gray
tossed in four bases on balls. Bunting
and Conroy contributed errors, and a
passed ball was chalked up against Ain
smilh Thus far the regulars and the Yan
nigans have plaved eight games Both
sides have won three, and two have
been tied, so it is casil seen how eenly
the clubs are matched, the superior pitch
ing of the second squad being more than
offset bj the better hitting and fielding
of tne regulars
Graj was hit harder than Otey this
norning and also given poorer support,
but at that Doll had more stuff than
his rival, and Manager McAleer said

"Ainsmith had one had fault In the

account Although he possesses a beau

charged against him, and most of these
because he dropped so many pitched

habit there Is not a man In the Ameri

Ainsmith was asked about this, and
said. "I know I dropped a great many
balls while with the Lawrence team, but
that was on account of the pitchers; they
never gave me a waste ball and lnvarl

"Take a ball hit down to me, coming with extra speed, and this should
bo plaed carefully, while a slow one must be handled on the run, and
chances must be taken on the pick-up between bounds
"As a rule. I pay little attention to keeping my heels together on a
ground ball, depending wholly on my hands, as the outfielders will pre
vent a runner taking an extra base if the ball filters through my paws
"When a base runner starts to steal 'Gabby' Street alwavs slams
the ball in the direction of the base, and when I am to take the throw,
which I invariably do on a left-hand hitter, I time myself so that I will
be right on the job when the ball arrives
"I believe that a shortstop should alwas cut right for second base
on every ball hit to the left of a pitcher, and should cover the base on
the throw down from the catcher with a man on first and third, as the
second baseman Is in a better position to return a short throw from the
plate if the man starts for home.
"Although shortstops run the greatest risks of being Injured by cov
ering second base on a throw from the catcher to get a runner trying
for the base, I have never jet been badly spiked, because I have learned
by constant practice to get the ball In my gloved hand, and hold It In
such a position that when the runner slides into me my fingers are well
"My advice to Oungsters who are tring to make good as shortstops
Is never to go after a man the second time. If ou fall to touch him
when the ball arrives, don't stab him again, as it Is useless, for he Is

"If ou happen to have a weak third baseman on jour club, this win
prove a big handicap I go for every fly hit to the short outheld, as OU
never know how much ground you can cover until ou start.
"The outfielders, knowing that I am after everything, help me by
jelling out, as a shortstop cannot afford to keep his eye off the ball
long enough to see if another fielder is headed for the place.
"I believe in good, hard preliminary practice before every game
and a chance to measure the distance to flrst by a throw when there
is time, as the game proceeds.
"My advice to Oungsters, as I stated in the foregoing. Is Practice!

By V X- "WORLEY.
Georgetown defeated the American Se
curit and Trust Copipany nine ae
Georgetown Field esterda afternoon, im
a loosely plaed game. S to 6
Raw lings did the twirling for the losers.
and while he kept the Blue and Gray hits'
well scattered, he was as wild as aj
March hare and walked ten men. hid
one batter, and had a wild pitch chalked!
up against him on the score sheet.
Fienli let the trust compan lads down!
with no runs and one hit in the fourt
Innings which he pitched White took:
the place of Fienli on the firing line mt
the fifth,, and the bankers found tho
.all recruit much the better to their
liking, obtaining five bingles. and all od
their six runs oft his delivery.
American Securit and Trust outfieldedt
the Hilltoppcrs, the bankers' infield pull-'
ing off several sensational plays. Davis
st third, while letting two of his chances:
gj for errors on account of poor throw si
to first base, plajed a snappy game" and'
contributed the most sensational bit of
rwo-k of the afternoon when he speared(
hlt-s fast roller with his gloved hand,
while running sideways in the eighth,
Riddle was another trust company
man who distinguished himself, stopping'
all kinds of high and wide throws at.
first ba'-e without letting any of thenv
get away from him
West Is Unfortunate.
West was unfortunate in having twc.
errors charged against him, which were,
directly attributable to the condition of
the plaing field. Around the home platb
and directly in front of the pan there Is
a large amount of red clay which has
jbeen filled in to level off the field. Wheni
Haes shot a fast one home on the
bounce to catch Quinlan at the plate, in.
the third inning, the ball took a bad.
'bound and went past the -turdy banker,
allowing Quinlan to cross the pan In an.
attempt to nab McCauley at third, Westj
threw the muddy ball Jow and it went to
on side of Davis, letting in another tally.,
After the landslide in the third innings
when the winners made five of theli
eight runs, and when the Bankers madei
three of their four errors, the Trust Corn
pan lads did not play with their old-time,
snap and fire for several innings. To
ward the latter part of the game, and.
after White had entered the box, they
picked up and went after the ball In a,
businesslike manner, which netted them,
four of their runs.
Hunt, Murphy, and Cogan connected
with the ball well. Hunt stepped into one
in the fourth and sent it humming to the
outheld. and it proved to be the neatest
single of the game. Fury hit the ball!
hard and would have had two triples.,
onl he failed to touch first base in the.
-econd Inning and was called out by
Umplre Belts As it was, he nailed one.
on the head a little later which counted!
for three sacks.
Murphv and Cogan mad the moot hits
two api-ce. and seemed to have no
trouble hitting Rawlings delivery.
