IN ONE INNING.
Gondlng's Bad Judgment and Errors
Qave the Miners the Game
Over four thousand spectators, or to
be exact, 4,099 who paid admissions,
and perhaps a hundred and fifty mow
who entered the park on compliment
ary tickets, saw the Miners gain a vic
tory over Wllkes-B,irre at Athletic
park on Saturday. Together with the
large crowd there hangs a blunder, on
the Kastern league schedule makers
who scheduled two games for today
Insteud of Saturday, when the Decor
ation day holiday was rrally observed.
In consequence the Wllkes-Barre own
ers received only 40 per cent of Satur
day's big retelpls, while the two clubs
will according to tule share equally
the proceeds of the games today, one
at Wllkes-Barre this morning and tho
other here this afternoon.
Saturday's game began at 4-15 o'clock
a half hour later than usual on account
of tho circus. At 4 o'clock a sea of
humanity occupied bleachers t and
grandstand and overflowed Itself about
the field. When the game began it ex
tended halt way across deep left
field, lined the foot of center Held
fence and had spread Itself Inside the
picket fences enclosing the diamond.
A ground rule was made that permitted
not more than two bases on a ball
batted or thrown into the crowd.
GONDING'S POOR PLAYING.
The result was less a Scranton vic
tory than a game lost for Wllkes-Barro
on poor playing by Gondlng, the
Wllkes-Barre catcher, who essayed to
cover left field. Ho lost the game for
his team tn the first inning, making a
raw rrror and- permitting the Miners
to taly five runs and gi't a two-bass
nnd a three base hit that were not de
served. Gondlng was then taken out of
the game, his position being occupied
by Manager Powell. Odwell, the
"Wilkes-Dane pitcher, continued to
play short-Mop In place of McMahon.
who Is 111, and did the star work of
his club's Infield, excepting a wide
throw to first In the opening inning.
Eagan reappeared in his old posi
tion In left field, but In the fourth In
ning was hit on tho shoulder by his
own foul tip and was obliged to retire
in favor of Meaney.
EJwen with the Miner's big lead the
WilRes-Barreans showed a disposition
to win tho game out while Keenan was
holding down' the opposing batsmen.
Fast work by Bonner, Beard, Magulre
and Massey, notwithstanding "Big
-Bills" two and Masutro's one error,
and tv'othnrd running catches by Daly
H'ept, tho, ' Barons from carrying out
their purpose. ,
','Chuck" Gllon pitched, a remarka
'tjly strong, game, particularly so In
view of the fact that he had Just re
covered from a troublesome boll which
kept him in bed up to Friday. Of tho
seven hits off him alt wer singles and
only In tho first; Inning were as many
as 'two hits made off htm In 4.
NO FAULT OF KEENAN'S.
' Keenan pitched better than the score
Indicates. Two of the 12 hits off him
were bunts land Daly's triple and
Boyd's single would not havo beeni
made but for Gondlng's bull .headed
fleVJIng in tho first inning.
. In tho seventh Inning Keenan per
formed a rather unusual feat of de
livering only three balls, which were
sufndi'nt to retire the side.
Ragnji opened tho first Inning by
reaching fiist on Oiiwfll's bad throw
but wan forced by O'Brien at second.
Biard singled and both runners camo
ocVerthe plate on Daly's three-baser
over-Qundlng's head. Daly's hit should
-not hav been n dlfllclt catch. Mossey
forced Daly nt the plate, ra.ched sec-
.' Qnd on tho play nnd cams homo on
pondlng'a muff of Bonner's ily.Ilonner
adchlnjj third. Magulre Was scoied n
iht on A hall batted too hard to lie,
fleldfit properly by Odwell and on
wHch Bonner came homi., Magulra
stqted on Bod's twebaser to left cen
ter, Olllon fanned and mude tho third
For Wllkes-Barre Sharrott singled
and stole second. Goeckel struck out.
Four wide balls Were given to Betts,
who secured the only walk during the
entire game. Od'well hit a single past
Glllon, Sharrott scoring and Betts
reaching third, Betts tried to get In
on Boyd's throw on Odwcll's steal,
hut Beard got the ball back to Boyd
In time to make n put-out by a close
margin. Mills hit What seemed a safe
fly to short right but Daly managed
to bag It while on a hard run.
In the second Inning with Eagan dis
posed of, O'Brien hit one against cen
terfleld fence, but according to the spe
cial ground rule could take but two
bases. Ho was forced by Beard at
third, Beard going to second In the
play. Daly flew out to Mills.
It was one-two-three with tho Miners
tn the thltd and fourth inning.
A Scranton run was made In the
fifth. With O'Brien out, Beard put one
Into the crowd In left center and' had to
be satisfied with two bases, paly hit
a high foul which Goeckel caught af
ter a long run. Beard started for third
on the out and scored on Smith's fail
ure to handle Ooeckel's throw. The
white mate to the black rabbit had to
bo chased off the diamond while Mas
sey was nt bat and that may account
for Bill's striking out.
With Bonner out In the sixth Magulre
singled, but Boyd and Glllon went out
on a fair and a foul fly respectively.
Keenan had to pitch but three balls
to retire the side In the seventh.
The eighth Inning saw the Miners fill
the bases on Daly's single and safe
bunts by Massey and Bonner. They
failed to score, however. Magulre hit
one on an easy bound to Keenan. The
ball was fielded td Dlgglns and by him
to Goeckel, forcing Daly at the plate
and doubling Magulre. There was
plenty of time to make the play. Boyd
went out on Odwell's assist.
The Miners' seventh run was made in
tho ninth on Glllon's single, O'Brien's
life with one out and a rlngle by
Beard. Daly fouled out to Goeckel.
After scoring a lonesome run In the
first Innlns the Wllkes-Bnrreans got
eight runners on the circuit up to the
close to the contest, but were able to
only tally one more run. Massey's
excusable error In mufllng a wide
throw with two out gave Dlgglns a
chance In the second, but Keenan, wan
an easy prey and struck out.
GILLON FOOLS THEM.
In the third with two out Betts sin
gled, and in the fifth with two out
Keenan and Goeckel got on the bases
on the former's Single and Massey's
muff of a thrown ball but In neither
case did Glllon permit the much needed
hits to develope. A single In tho sixth
with one out was followed by a double
play by Bonner, Beard and Massey, and
In the eighth with one out Bonner
blocked Goeckel's single over second
base, the side going out on a force hit
and Mngulre's assist to Massey.
"Finally in the ninth Magulre's error
gave the Barons their second and last
tally. With Mills disposed of on a fly
to Daly, Powell made a single, reached
second on Smith's life and came home
on Mngulre's failure to stop Dlgglns'
grounder. Keenan was assisted out ,by
Glllon. ' v
