PaJ Moore Easy for Charlie White
in Rough Fight..
Painter and Toney Require Experi
enced Coaching.
Charlie White discarded science in
his fight with Pal Moore at Kenosha
last night, and the "mill, developed in-
to a slugf est, in which the Chicagoan
overwhelmed his opponent, from the
East.
Six times Moore was battered, to
the floor by a terrific right cross, .fie
came back for more each time, fight
ing, one of the gamest battle even
seen in this neighborhood.
After the second round it was only
a question of; whether, tlje Philadel
phlan could stick tothe limit He
held White even in .the first two
, frames. In the third White put over
the first of his deadly rights arid
Moore, took the count of nine. 'Four
times in this rounct-Moore was all but
put. Again the fifth, Pal went down
foriiine. In the 'eighth White floored,
him at' the bell.
Beaten and battered beyond hone
of winning, Moore stuck gamely,
and in 'the eighth showed a flash,,
backing White around the ring. His
vitality was gone, however! - ' -
White was repeatedly cautioned by
the referee for foul tactics, and in the
latter rounds of the fightthe fans got
after him and hissed his rough work.
Moore, with plenty of time to train,
was not nearly as strong as in his last
fight with White. If the latter had a
real punch he could have put the
Philadelphian away for "keeps.
Tom McMahpn easily beat Dick'
Gilbert in Newcastle last night. Mcr
Mahon put up a good fight, giving .the
Philadelphia heavy one of the finest
lacings ever handed out.
A medal for 'Joe Rivers.- The Mex
ican lightweight says he ain't han

stick to the ring, where he ."knows
what he is doing. Joe says he has.

The-value of an experienced catch
er to a team 'was "never more clearly
shown than yesterday .at Tampa,
when Manager Evers backed, his re
cruit pitchers up with' Yanigans and
pitted them against the old timers,
who also had the advantage of vet
eran pitching.
Toney and Painter worked against"
the vets, Mike Heckinger catching
.the few slants that got by the bat
ters and 'came within his reach.
Toney started, and for two Innings
began to think he was a regular
pitcher. In the third he handed out
three bases on balls, hit one batter
arid was banged for tour hits. That
yielded six runs before a man was
out. Painter went to his rescue, and
before the side was retired-five more
runs scampered across the pan on a
combination of four hits and a pass.
The two pitchers were helpless
without the help of. a catcher who
could nurse them along. Painter has
not been treated so rudely since he
reached Tampa with, the leaguers.
Simply because. he has had the ad
vantage of Bresnahan's help in" pre
vious efforts. And still there are
dopists who figure Roger wfll weaken
the team 20 per cent when he is 'in
the game.
Jim Sheckard took part in the
game, holding down first base for the
Yanigans., Tommy Leach subbed for
Otis Clymer in center on the regular
squad. Sheck.wasnot used to the
hard work, but he got through the
afternoon, .with the . loss of a few
pounds.
