First blood.
Getting knocked out of the box
by the Cubs is becoming a habit
with Rube Marquard. '
Cubs won without Johnny
Evers. Jerry Downs handled
eight out of nine chances cleanly
at second, figuredin two double
plays and poled a hit that counted
one run.
The crowd encroached upon
the playing field and balls hit into
the fans counted for but two
bases.'
This rule robbed Joe Tinker of
a homer with two on in fifth, but
Zimmerman's double counted the
scores anyhow.
New York scored in the fourth
on successive doubles by Murray
and Merkle.
Only other time th'ey seriously
threatened was in the second.
With one out and two on Meyers
was purposely passed. Fletcher
then hit into a double play.
For four innings Marquard
staved off defeat, though he had
nothing but a worried look.
In the fifth Richie and Sheck
ard got on with two out. Tinker
then made his homeless homer,
Zim doubled, Leach singled, Saier
strolled and Downs singled. Five
runs.
Marquard was yanked and
Crandall got the side out without
further damage.
Cubs were satisfied with their
five runs. One hit was all they
made off Crandall in three iii
nings. Zimmerman and Leach each
swatted two safeties, both of the
Dutchman's being doubles.
Becker soaked two of six hits
made off Richie. Other four were
distributed among Murray, Mer
kle, Herzog and Meyers Four
Giant hits were doubles into the
crowd.
Jim Archer caught with a wrist
so swollen that he could hardly
swing a bat, but not one of the
gravitating Giants stole on him.
After tieing the sqore in ninth
Sox tpssed a game to Washing
ton in the tenth.
Doc White held Nationals for ,
eight innings. He was lifted in the
ninth to let Callahan sacrifice
Easterly to second.
Washington won when Kuhn,
who went behind the bat when
Walsh started pitching, threw
the ball to left field trying to
catch Foster at third after he had
doubled.
Each side collected seven hits,
Sox getting five off Cashion and
two off Johnson, who pitched the'
last two innings.
Easterly's bat again figured for
Sox. He drove in two runs in the
fourth with a double.
Sox tied it up through charity.
Easterly was safe on Foster's
