Anderson Wins Chance at Joe Rivers
Knocks Out Brown.
Leaqh Ties Score-Shows Nerve
Walsh Pitches; Sure, Sox Win.
Bud Anderson, the Vancouver
lightweight, added "ed to the name
of. Knocked Qut Brown, Dan Mor
gan's New York scrapper, in the 15th
round at Los Angeles last night.
Incidentally, Anderson looms up as
an obstacle in the path of Joe Rivers
toward a match with Willie Ritchie
for the championship. By fits .show
ing in his two battles with Brown the
coast fighter has horned prominently
into the limelight; and Rivers must
eliminate him before he "can demand
Richie's undivided attention.
Brown only had the advantage In
two rounds last, night and held his'
opponent safe in' the same number.
During the rest' of 'the fight Ander
son was the, aggressor and carried'
the battle to the New Yorker.
Ten times Brown kissed the can
vas after a wallop from Anderson,
usually delivered with, a' right hook.
The coast boy also displayed an effec
tive uppercut, which connected with
Brown's Evers-like jaw with deadly
frequency. In" the 15th Brown "was
sent to the' floor three times, the
blow that put him out being a right
swing to the jaw, fololwing a right
to the body. Brown was knocked
Though clearly outfought and
without a chance alter tne sixtn
round, Brown displayed remarkable
Luther McCarty and Jirh Flyiin
both announced themselves in good
condition this morning for their go
tonight in Philadelphia. Notwith
standing these optimistic reports,
Flynn looked "heavy, but appeared
able to stand the pace fpr the sched-.
uled six rounds. Gunboat Smithy ex
pects to be at the" ringside' and will
issue a defy .to McCarty to do battle
for the championship.
Just to be a little different, we're
going to tip our hat to an athlete who
took part for only about three min
utes in yesterday's two liours of ball
base and hand at the West Sidei
park, and who seems toave been'
lost in the crowd of 19 players Man
ager Evers shoved into the scuffle.
Our herb is Thomas Leach, and" we
were not sq much impressed with his
bingle in the seventh, which drove
in the tieing run from second, as with,
the way he acted around the plate
before pulling this cheer stuff.
Zim's triple, Phelan's bingle, a pass
to Corriden and two errors had. given
the Cubs two runs with two out, leav
ing Bf esnahan on first and Corriden
on second."5 Leach was sent to bat'for
Lavender, who had relieved Charley
Smith on the mound in the fourth.
A hit meant a tie score.
Lefty Cooper worked the-count to
three and two on Leach. Did the lit
tle veteran act nervous? He did not,
says we, having known the answer
when we asked the question. Tom
waved to Cooper to wait a minute,
stepped back from the plate, used his
hands for a cuspidor, rubbed, them in
the dirt, got a firm gripk on iis short
black bat, and then stepped into the
batter's box. 'He might have been
playing with the Main Street Terrors,
back in the old home town, for all
the concern fie showed at the ticklish
Cooper t pushed the next ball
straight over the pan, waist high, and
Tommy caught it sauarelv for a line
single to center, blowing Corriden
The reason we' give all this, space
to Leach is to show how a veteran
acts under fire. A youngster might
have' gone up and delivered, just as
Leach did. Also he might have shiv-
