out Mclnniss was given his chance,
mainly because of his hitting, and did
his work impressively. He was able
to stick on his hitting until he became
a good fielder.- -.
On the defensehe is not better
than Merkle, but is just as good. He

Mclnniss is the third man in that
formidable trio, Collins, Baker and
Mclnniss, who follow each other in
the line-up. He is clubbing far above
.300, 'and has driven in more runs
than any other man on the Mack
squad. The uncanny thing about Mc
lnniss' hitting is that the opposing
team knows just where he will put
the ball left field.
In spite of this' he continues to
drive out the safeties. The ball either,
travels pact the third baseman, over'
his head, or is smashed at him so
hard that It ,1s impossible to stop it.
The Sox opened a three-game ser

up the schedule. Ed Walsh and "Billy;

The veteran battery will work ou,t

The Phillies won two games out of
three from the Giants yesterday, one
of the battles being the finish of the
Aug. 30 dispute. The Giants failed to
score in their two-thirds' of the' last
inning. Marquard and Mathewsdn di
vided the work in the first gamefTand
each pitched at top speed. Seven
hits were made by Ihe Phils. The
Giants batted hard in the first game,
but were soft for Seaton in the sec
ond. Connie' Mack practically settled
one thing yesterday. Schang will
catch Bender. This battery was work
ed against the Yanks, the game being
stopped by rain in the fifth with the
score 0 to 0. Bender had allowed two
hits and the Macks had scored the.
same number off Caldwell.
Walter Johnson yesterday signed
his 1914 contract with Washington
at a salary reporte dto be $12,"500.
Francis Ouimet, the youthful golf
champion, has canceled ,his exhibition"
dates because of ill health.
Players -in the world's series can
"expert" the games if they write their
Lown stuff. The same ruling will apply
to other player-authors. This state
ment was made by Ban, Johnson yes
terday. Johnson also threatened to bar Ed
die Collins and Frank Baker from
the world's .series if they did not live
up to this stipulation. Ty Cobb is an
other who will come under the ruling.
Ty claims ne'ean ao us own doping,
however, and will not be hurt. Hugh
Jennings had already canceled a con
tract he had with a newspaper syn
dicate. Johnson offers to furnish the play
ers with stenographers. The steno
will make two copies, and if the dope
used in the paper is not that written
by the player he will be dealf -with.
All of which is some fine mess. The
players will undoubtedly "write" as
they have done in the past.
Once there was'a "searching" in
vestigation of ticket scalping in con

great hullabaloo about catching some
scalpers m the net. But the results
of that investigation were never made
