PHILADELPHIA. June 21. "Chick"
Gandtl will play today ngalnst the Ath
letics with a broken nose, the result
of Eddie Collins rough work yesterday
when he fell upon the sliding first
Backer of the Nationals at second base.
A small chip of bono haB been cut
, from Gandil's nose by a surgeon, and,
though he will play today ho is suffer
ing much pain from the Injured mem
ber. Both manager Griffith and his play
ers are loud In their claims that the
Athletics are purposely trying to In
jure their opponents. Instancing Gandil's
Injury yesterday. Mclnnes' attempt to
hurt Milan at first base, and Thomas'
shouldering of Gandil Tuesday In Wash
ington. However, the Nationals are
prepared to give tit for tat, and It is to
be expected the two remaining games
will be for blood.

bout with satisfaction to all In the

made good there, too, telling how ho
had been asked to officiate in the Johnson-
lynn title bout In New Mexico, but
was unable to accept the otter as tno
Nationals will need him ubout tho
Fourth of July to knock in a few runs.
The Philadelphia members of the
rrlars. a theatrical oiganlzattion. have
been Invited to attend today's game at
Shibe Park as guests of the Athletics,
and tonight at the Fori em there will be
a celebration by the Friars in honor of
the players of both teams.
The Nationals leave heie tomorrow
night for Washington on the 6:38 train
from North Philadelphia, but several of
the boy.8 will go down to Atlantic City
Bill to Athletics
Outclassed, that's all. That one little
word explains why the Nationals diop
ped another double-header to the
world's champion Athletics by scores of
5 to 0 and 8 to 1. When Btackcd up
against lCddie Plank they waved their
bats like umbrellas, those same bats
which had driven llaumgardncr, Ed
Walsh. Frank Lange, Jean Dtibuc,
George Kahler, and "Lefty" Ueorge to
rdut and rulr Then when Carioll
Blown, a rank "bushei," ascended the
hill in the second i lash, they weie
moving under the same hypnotic influ
ence and could effect nothing with their
"Chick" Gandil alone stood forth as
a icgular.blg league plaer. He played
a fine game In the held and corralled
four blngies during the double clash,
three of them In the second melee. Yes,
Gandil Is of major league stuff, there's
no mistake about that.
But the rest very bad, ery bad. Dan
Moeller and Eddie Foster nere like
putty in the hands of Plank and Brown,
ntither of them doing a thing to prove
his right to bo with a winning team In
the big show. Ray Morgan, until his
leturn from the West, the hardest hlt
tei on the team, couldn't do anything
more than wave his wand fun-fashion.
During their record-making series of
victories, the Nationals could alwajs
make runs, because they hit the ball
savagely and at all times, no niattpr
what the odds were against them. So
far on their slump they have gone to the
other extreme, proving that they can't
git a hit or anything like a hit when
the need is th greatest
Perhaps, as Manager Griffith explains,
their natural relaxation after their
winning stteak will wear off and they
will begin to hit Perhaps today they
will land on the ball In old-time style.
At anv rate, they all looked alike es
Uida, with the single exception of
"Chic ' Gandil.
Only Five Hits .
Eddie Plank, wrinkled as an ptune,
the veteran huiler of the Mackmen,
held the Nationals down to five scatter
ed blngies In the opening game, never
giving them the slightest chance to do
anything. Meanwhile, lucky hits were
ghlng the Athletics runs and when the
final score was made out It was shonn
that Plank has whitewashed his oppon
ents b a score of 5 to 0.
Bakers single In the econd. Stiunk's
atrlflce, a passed ball, and Mclnnls'
safet to left counted the Matkmen's
rtrst i tin. In the sixth the bumped a
couple of luckv hlngle.s off Joe Kngel.
nd mixing these with two sacrifices and
a walk, counted three tallies
Lord opened with a luckv hit to left
and Oldilng's Texas Leaguer diopped
inst out of reach of either Shanks. Mc

Hukci wah passed puiposely Strunk's
hoist to Milan let Lord score, and then
with all the Nationals' gardeners play
ing dead left foi him, his usual place
of hitting, 'Stuffv" Mclnnls tucceeded
in driving the ball to right field. It
was a triple, for Moeller was in center
field and Morgan and Gandil had to re
trieve the ball, getting It after Oldrlng
and Baker had scored.
As "Dutch" Schaefer had hit for En
gel In the eighth, pounding out a
double to right center. Joe Buehllng
was sent to the dab In the (lnal half of
the frame. He started bv parsing Col

Eddie Collins strolled in the first in

the bank In left, bui that lone run
faded away into pale insignificance
when tho third session was concluded,
for the Muckmon had fallen upon Carl
Cushion for four more. tuns.
Brown started the melee with a
single to center, moving up on Lord a
sacrifice. McBrlde dropped Oldrlng s

Cashlon was In a hole. He soon got
out of It, though, when Collins rippled

Brown and putting Oldrlng on third.
Collins took second on Shanks' Insane

Both Oldrlng and Collins scored on
Baker's savage drive to right, but the
slugger perished trving to stretch his
