Miners Lost nt Rochester Because They
Were Outplayed In All De
partments. Special to the Scranton Tribune.
Rochester, N. Y., June 11. A com
bination of hits by Rochester, errors
by Ollle Beard and base on balls by
Morse In the first Inning allowed
Rochester to eoore five runs and win
the game with Scranton today then
and there. In the ninth Just to put
the chance of being defeated a little
further away the Brownies ran In a
couple more scores but It would have
been a victory had the 'tally remained
the same that It was In the end of the
flist Inning for Rochester.
Soranton never got a real show at
the game although the feeling has been
prevalent here 'that the Miners are dan
gerous, and that Is -why the cranks
kept In their places even until the last
man was out. Yerrlck was very mys
terious to them and pitched a rattling
FIVE TO ROCHESTER.
The scoring began with Frank Shan
non, who singled and went to third on
Lynch's f- ,oh hit. The ball rolled
towards I'm and Morse picked It up
and sent it to Ollle to stop Frank, but
Olllo allowed It to pass through his
hands, and Lynch got to second.
Shearon got four balls and Dooley ad
vanced each a base and scored Kid
Shannon on a single. Another base on
balls forced Lynch in. Rltchter Mew
out and Ollle missed Mulvey's hit on
which Shenron scored and Dooley was
cnught at the plate by an assist from
Eagan to Gunson. Frary's three-bagger
scored Dan 'Shannon.
After that Inning Rochester could do
nothing with Morso until the ninth,
when Dcoley was hit, went to second
while Dan was going out from Beard to
Massey and scored on RIchter's right
flpld single. Mulvey put Rlchtcr on
third uith.a two-bagger, and he scored
on Frary's long lly to Eagan. Yer
nck went out from Morse to Massey.
For Scranton, Eagan began by fly
ing out. O'Brien was hit, stole sec
ond, went to third on a passed ball
and home on Frary's errnttc throw.
Heard singled, stole second, Meaney
went cut from Dan to Dooley, ad
vancing Ollle, and he scored on Mas
soy's neat bunt of the ball. Bonner
singled and Mngulre went out on a
high foul fly which Dooley caught back
of the stand.
In the third O'Brien was hit, Beard
singled, Meaney sacrificed and Mas
sey brought Jack home.
IN THE NINTH.
In the ninth Bonner singled, Mn
gulre doubled, Gunson got to first on
an error by F. Shannon. Jim Daley
flew out on a foul to Mulvey; Eagan
lilt to Yerrlck, who retired Bonner at
the plate, and Dooley dropped the hot
ball, which Frary sent to double up
on. Eagan and Magulre took occasion
to score. O'Brien hit to Frank, who
threw Eagan out to Dan.
By Associated Press.
Rochester, N. Y June 11. Two bases on

ning of today's gamo and Scranton was
not able to catch up In nine Innings, Yer
rlck pitching beautiful ball. The visitors

A special dispatch from Syracuse to
the Wllkes-Barre Record says; "Mana
ger Abner Powell, of the Coal Barons,
tonight signed Voorhees, the crack
pitcher of the Syracuso university club,
who Is regarded here an a valuable)
man. Voorhees came to Syracuse from
tho Oberlln, Ohio, college this spring.
He was used on second and also pitch
ed for the university team with suc
cess. During two summers he pitched
for the Atlantic City Athetotic club,
where ho did god work. Voorhees Is
tall and well built, and Is a good all
round player. He pitched great ball
for Syracuse, fielded well and was the
best twlrler on the team. Manager
Powell will only play him In the box,
although he Is a good lnflelder and he
will be given a trial at the first oppor
tunity." Of the Thursday gnmo nt Rochester
the Rochester Herald says: "The peo
ple from Pennsylvania keep billing the
ball from the first, but failed to get
together at tho bat In any one Inning,
Shannon's men bunched nlnchltslntwo
Innings nnd scored runs enough to win
at those Interesting stages of tho strug
gle. Two or three timely hits by
Scranton and Homester would have
had something to thlnkabout. Luck was
with Rochester or they would have
been forthcoming, too, as Dan McFar
lan trotted out a Job lot of material
from his repertoire to deal out to Grif
fin's gang. Ho was easy, and If his
support had not been of the most artis
tic kind things would have happened
to Rochester. All hands backed him
"It was like a family reunion when
the teams got together. Frank Boyd
was behind the bat for Scranton, Ollle
Beard was at Bhort, big Jack O'Brien
was In center field and 'Sandy' Griffin
nnd Jim Daly were both in uniform on
the bench. All of these gentlemen have
exerclced their talents In tho Interests
of Rochester teams at one time or an
other In the past and there were many
long range exchanges of greeting nnd
of expressions of mutual regard be
tween them and their admirers of form
Justice Davy, of Rochester, has In

from New York, bearing with him the
world's championship at pool, a medal
representing the samo which Is valued
at $175, and $350 of good money that he

All this came of his defeating Grant

Stewart, who secured by forfett from
Do Oro, the Cuban, who won It from
Clearwater, who came out first in tho
world's championship tournament held
in Kuntsch's parlors, Syracuse, In 1895.
Kcogh was in the tournament, but lost
It by a narrow margin. Later on he
tried to wrest it from Clearwater in a
game at Pittsburg, but fell down on an
easy shot with only three balls to make
and Clearwater ran tho game out.
It was a flunk pure and simple and
Kcogh has never felt satisfied that ho
wasn't the best man. He could not
compel Clearwater to give him another
chance, so he laid low and when Clear
water met his Waterloo Keogh grasp
ed the first opportunity to prove to the
world that he had been accidentally
beaten at the 'Pittsburg contest. This
victory Is proof that he Is not only a
better man than Clearwater, but also
better than all the other cracks, as
each in turn has been defeated.
1 he contest by which Keogh won
the championship took place In the
Palm garden of Proctor's Pleasure Pal
ace, Fifty-eighth street and Third ave
nue, New York, Monday, Tuesday and
Wednesday nights of this week. The
stake was $150 a side and a purse of
$200 contributed by F. F. Proctor, man
ager of the gardens. In addition to
this there was the $175 medal, present
ed by tho Brunswick-Balke Callendar
company, which has the direction and
control of all championship games.
The game was 600 balls, 200 a night
for three nights. Keogh fairly ran
away with his opponent. The first
night the score stood 201 to 136; second
night, 400 to 300, and the third night,
600 .to 504. Had Keogh kept up his
gait of the first two nights he would
ha'vo beaten his man 600 to 450. He
saw, however, that he had a sure thing
and did not exert himself during the
last night's play.
In addition to winning the cham
pionship, Keogh broke his own world's
record for a continuous run, pocketing
flfty-elghtballswlthoutamlss. The pre
vious best record was fifty-seven balls,
made by him in the 1895 tournament.
The fifty-eight run was made 12-15-15-
