Brick Owens Partly tc
B06T0N. July The third dou-^
bleheader between the Nationals
and the Red Sox came a split, the
Boston club Just preventing the losa;
of five doubleheadera in succession
by winning the first game. 2 to 1
in twelve innings, and they did this
only by fretting a break. The Nationals
won the second game, 1 to 0.
in the regulation distance.
There was some splendid pitching
in both contests. Russell and Mogrldge
being stacked against each j
other in the opener and Sam Jones'
and Erickson In the final. The i
Nationals won five out of the six
games In the series.
Their one- run in the first game
this afternoon was constructed in
the proper way by 100 per cent
base hits, while the first tally by
their opponents was a perfect blend
of luck and an error of judgment I
on a play by Shanks, with Umpire I
Owens being about one-third of the i
triple mixture. *The run with which
they won the game in the twelfth
was o. k. in every respect.
Only five hits were made ofT Russell
and three of these were
bunched In the third when the Nationals
scored their run.
Breaks Ajcalaat MojrrldKP.
Mogridge was touched up for
eleven hits, but generally tightened
up in the. pinches. Considering
what the Red Sox did to him yesterday.
he made a wonderful showing
and lost, as things happened,
only through" the breaks going'
against him in one inning.
Erickson and Sam Jones had a
great battle, in the second clash,
the Swede being absolutely airtight.
Only five hits were made
against him and three of these were
contributed by John Collins. The
btngles were scattered through as
many Innings and the only time!
that he was in danger of being j
scored on was in the seventh when
Collins led ofT with a double and
went to third on a sacrifice. But
he stopped there.
Bar one inning. Jones was Just
about as good as Erickson. Miller. :
who played in left field, was out,
In his batting togs. He made three !
hits In his four chances. He might j
possibly have come through with a
perfect batting average for the day
were it not that on his second trip '
to the plate he was trying to dodge
one of Jones' inshoots when the!
ball accidentally hit the bat and
rolled fair to Mclnnis. Every one j
of his three safeties was a cleancut
sizzler to left field.
O'Rourke again played a whale of
s game In the field, some of his t
performances being phenomenal.
Rice as usual covered a lot of j
grounin the outfield. He, Miller
and Picinich did the hitting in the'
There was a lot of fine baseball I
in the games today, the pitchers j
all being given perfect support so j
far as the mechanical work of their!
team mates *vas concerned.
In the first frame. Judge opened'
against Russell with a double to i
right, and after Milan had flied to'
Lefbold, was doubled up off second
on Rice's liner to Foster.

It was in the second inning that
the Red Sox made their lucky run.
Rnel. the first man up lined to
Shanks. Mogridge knocked down!
Scott's bounder, but could not recover
the ball and the runner was
safe. He caught him off first a moment
later on a quick throw to
Judge, but Owens missed the play.
Then Foster's bounder was batted
down by Mogridge. who deflected
the ball toward Harris for an easy
play, but Owens was in the way and
the ball hit him, thus making both
Vltt grounded to Shanks, who, if
he had but known it had only to
take one step back touch third, thus
forcing Scott, and chuck the ball to
first for a double play. Instead.
Howard went the long way around
for his douple play. He missed getting
Foster at second because it
was a hit and run play but Vitt was
out at first on Harris' relay to.
Judge. Evidently the latter thought
Foster had been forced at second,
and before he realized his error,
Scott *ho had kept on the jump all
the while, was over the plate.
Nationals Tie It t>.
The Nationals worked into a tie
In the third. Gharrity led off with a
single and O'Rourke followed with
a double. A single by Mogridge to
short left, scored Gharrity. but as
there was none out. O'Rourke was
held at third, not caring to take a
cfcance on being nipped at the plat^
The safety play with Boson's
luck in making their first run,
c what crabbed the game for Mc
tride's boys, for Judge hit to Mcnis
and Mogridge was forced at
second. O'Rourke being held at
hird. only to be thrown out at the j
plate when Milan grounded to Fosk
er, who was playing close in. With
W iwo on. Rice grounded to Mclnnis
the third out. The visitors
r??-v .r had another chance to score
against Russell, who allowed only
two hits, thereafter, one in the
tenth, with two out and one in the
eleventh also with two out.
The Red Sox could do nothing
against Mogridge till the twelfth.
Then Liebold. the first batter up
shot a single past Harris, which
the latter nearly nippel. Menosky
sacrificed putting Nemo on second, j
and he went to third on Foster's
out at first. Mclnnis then followed
with a clean single to center, putting
over the deciding run.
ftSrftek la Great Fem.
The Red Sox were almost helpless
before Erickson in the second
^ame. The Swede kept them batTing
flics for the most part. Smith
in right fleld had nine put outs.
Rice four, and Miller one. Shanks
handled four pop flies Judge two
and Picinich one.
The only run of the game was
made by the Nationals in the second
frame, which Miller opened
with a single to left, went to third
on Shanks' single te right and home
on a single by Picinich to right,
three screeching singles in succession.
Jones then struck out
O'Rourke and Erckson on six,
pitched balls, and Judge fli<>d to
Menosky. but the solitary run was |

Rice May Lose
Far Behind I
Champion Base Stealei
By Jack PI ye.
At the risk of being mobbed, we
arise to remark that Washington'*
I most famous pair of less are not
what they used to be.
"Wrong as usual." chirps Francis
Marion Stephenson, the son of Old
DePauw and well-known bathing
beach Adonis. "They not only |
haven't deteriorated, but have shown !
some improvement of late." |
"Righto." avers Mr. Herrick
Gooch, stopping in the mrffst of his j
daily travelogue which had carries
his hearers as far as Syria, where |
they eat goat's meat. That's where
the train always stops.
The fact remains, however, thar
the widely advertised props of Sam
Rice, leading base stealer of thf
American League in 1920, are not
functioning in their old-time manner.
Rlfr Behind 1B20 Pare.
With the season more than half
gone. Rice is far behind his mar*
of last year and will have to do
phenomenal work on the paths to
reach the total of sixty-tnree again.
On July 6 of last year Rice had
stolen thirty-one Hacks, as compared
to a mere twelve this season.
Sam has not only failed to set the
pace for the league, hut nnds himself
trailing one of his own teammates,
who didn't show any exceptional
speed last year.
Bucky Harris started a lot or
daring stuff on the sacks when thr
season opened and has been keeping
it up ever since. He has swiped
sixteen weeks through July 5 and is
only one behind George Sisler, the
present league leader. It looks as if
the peppery Harris is determined to
make a strong bid for first honors
. and has almost an equal chance
Bsfky Going Fast,
Harris has already stolen as many
sacks as he did during the 1920

The former International
Leaguer is taking a lot of chances
and is getting away with moat of
them. He has a long. Jerky stride,
very unlike the rhythmic motions
of Rice, but he gets there just the
same. His chief asset is that he
is always on his toes looking for
a break and taking advantage of
Another Grlffman who is show-1
Ing improved work on the runways
Is Joe Judge, who Is tied with Rice
at the present writing with an even
dozen thefts. Joe managed to ateal
thirteen bases last season and bids
fair to double that mark this year.
Judging from the present pace
no player in the league will reach
the total of sixty-three made by
Rice last season. Cobb's ninety-*
eight, made in 1915. still stands as
u modern record, and even Milan's
eight-eight, made in 1912. will hardly
be reached for many seasons.
Hire Still a Flash.
Rice's slump in base-running is
not easily explained, as hs still
seems to have his old speed. He
is not trying to steal, however,
often as he did last season. H\s
batting eye remains as good as ever,
which can be observed from the
fact that he tops the list of Griffmen
in hitting. And he Is still making
those great running catches In
the outfield. Perhaps he will begin
to speed up before long, but
there is a slim chance that he will
reach his 1920 mark.
With the exception of Harris, Rice
and Judge, none of the Grlffmen la

Cub Fans Not Wantet
By Attorney for
CHICAGO. July 6?After two dayi
of examination, three men have beei
j tentatively accepted by both th
I defense and the prosecution a;
| jurors to try the cases of
former White Sox and four allege'
I gamblers, on trial before Judg
; Hugo M. Friend in the Crimina
Court in connection with the 1st'
world series scandal. The juror
"p'aul E. Luebcke. an employe o
the Chicago Telephone Company.
Herbert J. Jordan, a stationar
Joseph Vesley, foreman of the Al
Attbrney Benedict J- Short, w-ni
examined the prospective jurors fo
the defense, indicated, in his ques
tions. several lines of procedur
which can be followed by the at
torneys representing the ball play
ers and the gamblers.
He dwelt at length upon the lo
of the ball player?how the man
s ager sat on the bench and directe)
1 practically every play: how ther
i were four umpires present, whos
duty it was to call attention to an;
I intentionally indifferent playini
| and how the players came and wen
! at the whim of their managers am
j owners, being more like the beau
ties in the Sultan's harem than fre<
men. He Indicated that an effor
will be made to exclude the testi
mony of Bill Burns, former So:
pitcher, who has turned State's evi
| dence. and that Cub fans will no
j be welcomed on the jury becaus
I of the fact that they may be preju
diced against the Sox players.
This last point was brought ou
in the examination of William Kie
fer. a prospective juror. He state*
that he occasionally attended I
game at the Cub park, but 'neve
visited the Sox park, and after con
siderable argument he was excused
The State, in its examination o
jurors, 'continued to confine itsel
almost entirely to the question ol
the testimony of an accomplice, in
dicating that it Intends to rely upoi
! the evidence of Burns in its effort!
