Clarke and Murphy After Brennan
Cross Seeks Ritchie Match.
Russell Has Usual Luck Cubs Bust
Giants' Mad Dash.
Bill Brennan, one of the National
League umpires who officiated in the
game which was forfeited to the
Cards by the Cubs last Sunday, is
now the target for Manager Fred
Clarke of Pittsburgh.
With Murphy and Clarke both aft

Clarke claims that Brennan chal
lenged Pitcher Cooper to fight under
the Philadelphia grandstand after
Tuesday's game. Cooper is said ' to
have accepted, but Brennan did not
show up to take part in the mauling.
The fine of $25 plastered on- Cooper
was paid under protest.
Murphy has appealed to the board
of directors of the National League
over the head of Lynch, who sus
tained his umpires in forfeiting the
Leach Cross and his manager will
remain on the coast for a short time
in the hope of persauding Champion
Willie Ritchie to give the New York
dentist a chance at the lightweight
title. Several New York clubs have
offered to stage the bout, which
would be a major attraction in Goth
am, and Tom McCarey is also willing
to givea liberal guarantee if the
fighters want to appear at his Vernon
arena. Cross or Harlem Tommy
Murphy are about the only men who
have a license to challenge Ritchie
with a chance for consideration and
sooner or later the California boy
must yield to their requests.

while he is pitching.
Reb was hit harder than in any
game this year, but at that managed
to hold the Yanks to two runs be
cause of his strength in the pinches
and fine defensive work by his team
mates. Three hits were all the Sox could
get off the combined pitching of War
hop and McConnell. Two of the
blows were rank scratches, the only
clean one being a double by RusselL
One Sox batter reached third base,
