Johnson Loses Opener
7 JACK XYB.
One of the grandest little alibis
for our American League pitchers
seems to be fading into nothingness.
Not many weeks ago a perspiring
athlete, after being bumped for sev- [
eral home runs and a score or more
hits, could square himself thusly:
"Well, whadya expect? You cant
do nothin' with this here lively ball.
They oughta cut 'em out. Am T
fight or am I wrong?"
That was all very well in the recent
past, but it sounds sort of
fishy these days. There has been
a general tendency on the part of
the pitchers to tighten up, with a
resultant damage to many thriving
This trend was very noticeable
yesterday in the two games played
between the Griffs and the Athletics.
The outstanding feature of
each battle was the pitching. There
was quite a bit of fancy fielding,
but no hitting to speak of.
Take a look at the scores. Washington
lost the opening game by a
score of 2 to 1 and won the second
one in the twelfth inning by the
tighter count of 1 to 0. That does
not look as if the lively ball cut
much ice when the pitching arms
are working well.
Fonr Pitcher* in Form.
Of the four pitchers used during
the day there wasn't one who could
complain of the ball being too lively.
The left-handed Roy Moore and
Walter Johnson fought it out in
the first set-to, and each yielded
seven blngles. Barney lost because
he slipped in the eighth and allowed
the Macks to bunch four of
their hits. Moore refused to wobble.
That was pretty good pitching for
a starter, but the final fracas made
It lock like a slugging contest.
George Mogridge took the honors
triumphing over the bulky Rob
Hasty In an awfully tight afTair.

Bob was pretty good, as any pitcher
has to be who refused to *
run for eleven Innings. But Mogridge
was far better.
The local southpaw allowed but
three hits, on? a pony bunt, and
kept his head above water at all
times. He was backed in sparkling

fourth frame. Judge opened that 1
round with a scratch hit to J. Walk|
er at first, and Harris advanced him ]

Three Hlta oB Mogridge.
It was one egg after another in
hat final game, with neither pitcher
having much trouble. The first hit
jff Mogridge was a double by
Johnny Walker in the second round.
The second was a bunt by Witt in
the third, which fooled Shanks by
hugging the foul line, and the third
was another two-sacker by Perkins j
in the tenth.
George issued his first pass in the j
tenth. He was working smoothly at <
all times and received great support,
especially from Shanks and
O'Rourke. Each of these chaps cut
off hits time and again. Miller and
Rice also came to time with exceptional
catches. In eight of the
twelve Innings Mogridge kept the
baes clear of hostile hoofs.
Hasty was touched up for a hit
in each of the first two frames and j
Miller and Shanks bunched a cou- j

From the fifth until the ninth the |

with the bugs, but Tommy
Connolly didn't seem to mind.

The only thing that kept the
Griffs from winning In the eleventh
was a remarkable catch by Welch i
of O'Kourke's long .drive to center. |
Oharrity was on second at the time, i
as the result of a two-sacker Welch
hoofed it back about fifty vards and
snagged the ball when It appeared J
ttvat he didn't have a chance.
When Hasty walked Judge to
open the twelfth he spelled his j
own doom. Harris pushed Joe along
with a bunt. After Rice had lifted j
to Dugan. Smith slapped a hit into j
short left. Tilly Walker fielded th?
ball cleanly and made a fine pee
to the plate, which failed to catch
Judge by inches.

Says Dempsey is Not I
At Top Form
By WILLIAM A. BRADY.
(Veteran Theatrical Producer and Fight
Promoter, and the Man Who Made a Champion
of James J. Corbett.)
NEW YORK, July 1.?When Jack
DempseV faces Georges Carpentier
n the ring al Jersey City tomorrow
Afternoon he meets the fastest,
urainiest, trickiest hard-hitting
Dexer he has ever met in his career.
I have seen Dempsey in action
many times. I saw Carpentier box
Ciunboat Smith in London in 1914.
in that bout 1 aaw the young
Frenchman put the burly Smith
down for the count of nine with a
blow on the jaw. and Gunboat had
at that time faced Dempsey successfully
for twenty rounds. The
knock down was scored when both
men were as fresh as when they I
started, for little had been done in '
the early rounds. I am frank to
state, however, that I think if the
bout could have been continued to I
the limit Smith would have won.
Carpentier owej that victory to the
quick-thinking Des<hamps. who
claimed a foul when Smith deliberately
struck Carpentier when he
was on his knees. He had slipped
there and had not been knocked
down. Carpentier was in good
shape when ihe foul occurred, and
c^uld have continued with an even
chance to win.
Georges puzzled the Gunboat that
night in London by his dazzling
speed and by his original methods
of sparring. He seemed to have no
set style, but changed his mode of
defense and attack almost every
moment. He seemed a composite of
all the styles of boxing I had ever
seen. He is as quick on his feet as
Jim Corbett ever was and hits a
ton harder. He has not Corbett's
style of sidestepping and feinting,
but even in his footwork and feinting
he has style entirely his own.
When he fought I^evinsky last year
in Jersey City, he disclosed but little
of his real ability. He will
prove a puzzle to Dempsey tomorrow.
I am not under-rating Dempsey.
He is a wonderful specimen and has
a remarkable record. Hut I saw
him bojc Brennan. If that contest
was an honest one. and 1 think it
was, then it should be evens on tomorrow's
Carpentier is a far better man
than Rrennan and will prove It if
they ever meet and if he hits Dempsey
as easily as Rrennan did it will
be ail over but the shouting.
Don't talk to me about Dempsey
being in bad condition the night
he met Brennan. The bout lasted
j twelve rounds and Dempsey won by
a knockout. This result does not
i indicate a lack of condition. Dempsey
la an easy man to hit. That
was proved in Toledo when Wiltard
landed at will on him in rounds
two and three, notwithstanding the
fact that he could hardly stand
after the beating he foolishly took
in the first round. Miske fought

I am a great believer in psychology
befoie men meet in the ring
and the gong sounds. The articles ?
of agreement for this contest were
signed in my office. There Carpen- t
tier and Dempsey met for the first
time. Kearns proposed that he
should sign for Dempsey. but Car- | ?
pentier insisted on Dempsty si^n-1
ing personally. He waited two <
hours for Dempsey's ariival. It
was plain to m? that the Frenchman
simply had planned to have
a good look at his prospective op- j
ponent before sailing back to
Dempsey arrived. Carpentier like 1
a shot sprang to his feet, crossed
to Dempsey and while he carelessly 1
felt Dempsey's muscles slapped his
thighs, felt his calves and gave him ?
a complete lookover. Laughing
! tilled the air with admiring shouts S
Iof "magnifique," "tremendous" "superb."
Meantime Dempsey stood i
speechless at the superb impudence
of the other aian. and In fact he ;:
! did not open his mouth for five
j minutes after. !
Dempsey renumbers that. Next
day they played eighteen holes of
golf together. It seemed queer to
: fight followers, but I am told y*u
can .study a man very well while
traveling after him on a golf
j course. I wonder if that is why j
the wily Deschamps arranged that;
l golf game- ?
It strikes me that putting Journee
and Oans into the ring at j
Brooklyn tho other night was part |
i of the prearranged scheme. Moran j
beat Journee in two rounds just ,
before leaving France and Journet- '
was beaten by another Frenchman j
i in a few rounds a week or so bej
fore Carpentier sailed over here,
j Trust Deschamps to have known .Vl 1 I
.this and to have a purpose in send!
ing Journep to the slaughter.
I remember when we tried to do
; something like that when we pur
| Steve O'Donnel! into the rinp with
I Peter Maher. James J. Corbet*
I might have been anxious to find out
! Just how good Peter was. By sac- j
, rificing Journee our French Sven- j
gali. Deschamps. might have been j
willing to illustrate how bad Car- !
j pentier was, as it had been exten- j
I sively advertised beforehand how
good Journee was showing up In
1 his bouts with Carpentier.
j It's all in the crame. and I know
