To Twirl To-day
Local Boy May Face the Cleveland Naps Mor
gan Out of the Game George McBride
Favored by Players for Manager.
By "WILLIAM PEET.
Out at our ball yard to-day the Cleve
land Naps will again adorn the scene,
and it is probable that lanky Bob Groom
will endeavor to stop the hitting pro
pensities of Stoalls surprises
It is about time for Groom to serve
them o er, but Buck ' Becker may draw
the lucky number and do the honors
Buck has not been carded to do his
share toward the uplifting of our home
hopes for some time, and is sure to re
ceive the hearty support of his many
nell-wlshers should he be selected
Morgan's injury sustained in Saturdays
game is still bothering the little Na
tional recruit, and he is not expected to
be able to play for several das It
was while sliding into first that Ray
received the injury to his heel, which,
while nothing seriou. will preent him
from occupying the hot corner and dis
playing that speed which has charac
terized his work.
It is known that many of the mem
bers of the team are strong for George
McBride as next pilot of the Nationals
and whether the opinion of the plajers
foretells anything will not be known until
the selection has been made It is not

The Navy Yard team captured both
ends of a double-header from the Sew
age Pumping Station j esterday at Capital
City Park, scores 5 to 3 and 6 to 1
These victories grve the Machinists the
undisputed champion of the southeast. It
took ten Innings for the Nay Yarders
to turn the trick In the first game The
second contest was called b agreement
after five and one-half Innings of play.
The credit for the first victory goes to
"Dutch Sterzer, the former Tech twlrl
er, who pitched for the Evansville,
(Ind.) team this season He let the Pump
ers down with five hits, and sent thirteen
to the bench on strikes Outside of one
bad inning, the eighth, he was never in
danger. "Joe" Giebel, the Savannah star,
caught him, and held up in line stvle
"Phil" Buscher twirled the opener for
the Pumpers, and was touched for eight
healthy swats, all of which came at op
portune times Had hls team accorded
him better support the result might have
been different, as the Machinists scored
the wanning tallies in the tenth Inning
without a hit. 'Big Six' Brewer
had to retire in the ninth inning of the
contest on account of a swollen hand
Martin was pitted against McMahon In
the nightcap, and was hammered unmer
cifully In the second inning, the Ma
chinists shoving five runs over the plat
ter on four healthy blngles, two errors,
and a base on balls Martin settled down
after this inning and pitched good ball
for the remainder of the game McMahon
was in rare form, holding the Pumpers
safe at every stage of the game
Shipley pulled off the banner stunt of the
afternoon In the fourth inning of the
first game, when he sphered Brown's line
drive with one hand The catch earned
him the applause of the large crowd
which turned out to witness the conflicts
Jack Carr was the King batter, hitting

association rule was telng broken, be
cause players cannot be shifted after a
season Is four months advanced.
About the only one to gain by this
phoney deal was Mike Kelly, of St.
Paul. He may be thick with the man
agement of the Kansas City club, but
he pulled the wool oveV their eyes. There
Is no doubt but that Jack Flynn is a
high-priced man. To carry him on the
St. Paul pay roll would-be the height
of folly as things now stand, The Saints
have no chance to do better than the
end of the first division and they are not
drawing anything at the gate. Kelly has
no chance of keeping Flynn. for at the
end of the season he will go to Wash
ington. ROCHESTER WINS THE
EASTERN LEAGUE TITLE
Spedal to The Washington Herald.
Rochester, N. y., Sept. 24.-The
Eastern League season came to
a close to-day, with Rochester a
pennant Vinnerafter a thrilling
race with Baltimore and Toronto.
The official figures give Roches
ter a standing of .645 and Balti
more .621. The Orioles made
their exit by dropping a brace
of games to Providence, but the
double beating wrought no
change In positions, Toronto be
ing idle, and. therefore, barred
from a chance to slide into sec
ond place at the finish.
