GANDIL IS BACK IN GAME
Walter Leverenz Lasts Less
Than Two Innings Against
the Climbers.
By "SENATOR."
ST. IXU1S, May 15. Walter Smoke
ball Johnson is today holder of
a new world's record ' for hold
Ins the foe scoreless In successive
Innings In St. Iuls yesterday. When
Derrlll Pratt pounded a slngje to right,
scoring Gus Williams, who had already
doubled to left, the onward march of
the fireball fllnger was at an end. He
had traveled down fifty-six complete
Innings without allowing th enemy a
run and It will be some time before
thuVecord Is bettered.
In order to collect this last battle
from the fast moving Brownies, Man
ager Griffith forced "Chick" Gandll
back into the game, and sent Walter
Johnson to the mound. .The result can

and pounded the Brownies' twlrlers
hard from the outset, sending Walter
Leverenz to the stable In the second
session, and giving Macallison a sound
trouncing; When the smoke cleared
Griffmen had copped the victory, 10 to
D.
Began To Let Down.
Johnson might easily have set the
record for pitching shutout ball much
higher, but as soon as ha saw that -his
team had gained a good lead for him
he began to let down In his steam.
Gus Williams, the hard-hitting but
lame-fleldlng -outfielder immedlatcly
saw the point and sprang Into the niche
of fame by 'hammering a clean double
- along the left field line for a double.
Derrlll Pratt, who has been going very
poorly of late, crashed a single to right
that Joe Gedeon could not quite reach,
and -the deed was done. Johnson nad
been scored on for the first time since
Bert Daniels tallied In the opening
game of the Beason in Washington be
fore President Woodrow Wilson, and
all of us. Three innings had been add
ed to the mark formerly held by "Iron
Man Jamn" Co-nabs, however, and how
there Is a new record for some other
.young athlete to aim at for the rest of
the campaign.
There is little call to say that John
con was Invincible when he started. He
pitched the same -kind of ball that he
has pitched ever since the season got
under way. When it is told that he al
lowed three hits, and walked but one in
six sessions, fanning' seven huskies in
that time, it is possible to see how pow
erful he was. He didn't try much,
either, after that second inning when
the Grlffmen ran away from the
Brownies, clouting Leverner all xrver
the lot with three triples in a row.
There was considerable surprise
when Gandxl lobbied out to first base.
The big first sacker was not Inhe best
of condition, but he played through five
Innings before he was allowed to take
a rest on the bench Jn favor of "Rlppy"
Williams. Gandll failed to do anything
with the bat but his work at the bag
was smooth as silk.
Johnson Is Relieved.
The long lead obtained by the Grlff
men gave Griffith chance to relieve
Johnson, and save him for another day
against the Tigers, and also "to send
Joe Gedeon to second base. Morgan
has a sore ankle from sliding into thej
plate Tuesday, and he welcomed th'e j
rest hugely. Gedeon whaled oncTCleanj
nit out ot ms inree iries, scoring;, iwu
runs with his drive and looked pjettx
good in the field.
"Rags" O'Loughiin got into a wqrdy
wrangle with Bill McAUester, the
Brownies' backstop. In. the. second .ses
sion while Shanks was at bat, and after
some time had been lost in, their ora
tors', the arbitrator with the reputation,
but not the goods, banished the- back
stop from the battle. Furthermore,
when McAUester continued to murmur
sweet nothings from the bench, "Rags"
banished him from the park. You've
ot to hand it to "Rags," he gets away
etter with less goods than any "other,
umpire In the league. His -work on
balls and strikes was wretched, but the
one-sided looks of the- score kept the
fans from murdering him till the last
man had expired in the ninth. Bv.that
time there wasn't much need of blood
shed. ...
Joe Boehllng. the Richmond rookie,
twirled the last three sessions of the
fray, and was hit bard. Seven blngles
right off the nose sent four runs
across the platter for the Brownies.
However, the Grlffmen were so far
ahead at that time that no fear was
felt of the ultimate result. Boehllng's
work was very poor, and would have
lost a close same.
Walter Leverenz, the Los An
geles, opened the game for the
Brownies, but he was wild, and also
badly pounded In the second frame.
He walked five and allowed a trlnle In
one inning, and Mack Allison rushed to
his assistance. Allison got all that
Leverenz would have got had he re
mained at the helm, the Grlffmen ham
mering Mack to the far corners of the
arena, and settling the victory right
there.
Leveresz Was Wild.
Leverenz was wild at the opening of
the battle, passing the first three men.
Gandll, hobbling on his wounded toe.
rolled to Pratt, forcing Morgan, but
was safe on Walsh's high toss to Brief.
Moeller dashed over on the play. La
porte's slap at Walsh started a double
play, and the lone tally stood for the
frame.
There was a wild yell from the fans
when Pete Compton fanned, for that
gave Johnson fifty-three full frames
without a tally, equaling Jack Coombs'
, record. But the tumult was even
greater when Milan grabbed Johnston's
fly, giving the Big Sixes, the American
League record, a perfect ovation greater
came when he fanned Gus Williams.
The end of Leverenz came in the
second. He passed Alnsmlth and
Slianks, and then McBride punctured
the left field wall with a triple. Exit
fired Leverenz, and enter MacAlllson.
Walter Johnson promptly hit the wall
In left center for three corners, Bcoring
McBride. Dan Moeller followed with
another triple over Johnston's head,
scoring the Big Six. Moeller easily
tallied on Milan's boost to Compton.
Morgan was hit by a pitched ball, but
promptly doubled up by the -crippled
Gandll.
Dee Walsh, the gink -with the funny
first name, got the first hit of the day
off. Johnson, a clean single to center.
There wasn't much doing;, though, for1
Big League Biffers of a

It was in the fourth that Johnson's
record went to smash, and 'twas on
clean hits, with one gone. Gus Will
iams daubled to left, Pratt pounded a
single to right, scoring "Gloomy Gus,"
and fixing the new American League
record at fifty-six complete Innings for
holding the enemy scoreless.

Shanks led oft In the sixth with a
safety to center only to be doubled up

after Austin had dropped his foul fly,
Johnson hit a double against the cigar

lan's single to left scored the Big Six
and Joe Gedeon's hard wallop to center

By "SENATOR."
DETROIT, Mich.. May 15. To show
the weakness of the Griffmen at the bat
when a hit means a run. Just take a
look at the figures of their first dozen
games on this trip. Nothing proves a
point so well as the old numbers, boys,
remember, and after you have squinted
down the following parade, you should
be able to see the reason for the small
number of runs scored. The following
table shows the hits and runs made In
all of the first doten games on the

To score a run the Grlffmen have had
to make 2.66 hits every time. This does
not take Into account long hits or stolen
bases, all of which help In lowering the
percentage. As base stealers the Climb
ers stand well up among the league
leaders, too. Now you've come down
to the. reason for all this heavy can
nonading without results. It's found
In the pinches, the sorry showing of the
Climbers, when hits mean tallies being
remarkable.
When Hiti Count.
When hits count, that Is when run
ners are on second or third or on both
bases at the same time, the Climbers
have succeeded In hitting safely or In
poling a sacrifice fly Just nineteen times
On the other hand they have failed
seventy times.
"Zeb" Milan. Ray Morgan, ami
"Dutch" Schaefer have proved the mort
reliable pinch hitters In these first
twelve games. Frank Laporte, Eddie
Alnsmlth. and George McBride have
been the weakest. The following table

Must Be Airtight.
These figures show why the pitching
must be airtight for the Griffmpn to tin
a game. Time and again the bases
have been crowded with one or two out
and no run has been scored. It is a
frequent occurrence for a man to reach
third with none or one out and be left
stranded there for want of even a long
sacrifice fly.
At the beginning of this hike around
the world the Griffmen met nine pinches
In Philadelphia In two games and came
through in two of them. This painful
experience was continued in Boston
where twenty-four failures were record
ed as against nine successes.
In Chicago twenty-three times men
came to bat when a hit or a long fly
would mean a run, and failed to do a
single little thing. Just fli'e men did any
thing In the pinches. In the first tuo
battles In St. Louis this poor work kept
-P, three men succeeding In knocking
In runs and fifteen falling.
The worst game of all was the final
one In Chicago, won by Walter Johnson,
who pitched phenomenal ball, letting
down his opponent with two hits. la
' "' ' " 1
that game eleven chances showed them
selves for runs and not one was taken.
Might Have Scored.
To show what might hive been. Just
look over the following list of possible
runs that a good hard single would
have brought over. This table shows
the number of men on bases, not In

a long drive to bring home:

Best Hitters When Team Is
in Tight Place.
it was really too cold for the national
pastime, the bitter wind from Lake
Michigan making 11 torture for the
players and the fans.
Manager Griffith believes that the
warm weather ahead will serve to bring
out the latent hitting strength of his
team. Danny Moeller, Hank Shanks,
"Zeb" Milan, and Ray Morgan, four ot
the speediest youngsters with the team,
are too stiff to show their best paces.
They all sigh for warm weather. In
deed, right now Walter Johnson, Eddie
Alnsmlth. George McBride, and Tom
Hughes are the only players on the
team In first-class condition. This
quartet got into perfect shape at Char
lottesville and have never gone back.
The others have stopped short In their j
ucvciupuiwui uuucf uic xnuuence or. tne
cold weather.
The coming stay at home, from May
29 till June 28, Is expected to prove the
turning point In the onward march of
the Climbers. If the team thaws out
properly during that month at the
Florida avenue park, and can hold, its
own within four or five games of the
leaders, Manager Griffith will leave on
the next trip West confident that his
outfit will be In the last rush down the
line for the supreme honors. The
weather must settle things with the
Grlffmen this year more than anything
else.
