Phlladelphia. Pa., October 18.?In a
game that was full of thrllla from
atart almost to the finish, the Phlla?
delphia Amerlcan LeagUe champlons
this afternoon adraln!*tered a crush?
ing defeat to the Chicago Natlonal
league champlons before more than
24,000 persons. The score waa 9 to 3.
It was ' one of the most excltlnij
games ever played on the Amerlcan
League grounds here. It abounded In
sensational iieldlng and terrltic batting
The hero of the afternoon,'who sliont
as brlllUr.tly ln his deparunen'. ot tlie
game as did Bender ln yesterday's con?
test. v.-as Eddte Colllns. the star sec?
ond baseman of the home team. Thls
former captaln of the Columbia Unl?
verslty nlne. several time.. electrlfied
the crowd by hls sensational work.
The score books show that in hls llve
turns at the plate he reached llrst
every time by maklng three hlts, two
of them doubles, recelvlng a base on
balls and maklng a force play. He
scored two runs and sent two home,
aceepted ten chances wlthout nn error. I
flgured in two' sensational plays that,
stopped Chlcago from running the
bases, and last but not least. t!ie cham?
plon base runner stole twice on thei
klng of Natlonal League backstops. |
ilordecal Brown kept Colllns as close
as he could to flrst base bag. In the
Slxth lnning. Collin3 outguessed the|
Chlcago battery three times, Brown
pltchlng three wide balls for Kllng to
llne the ball to second, but each time
Colllns appeared to divlne the play and
walted. Then he. made his dash. and
went into the bag feet flrst as a per?
fect throw reached the bag Just an
Instant too lato.
CoombH Ii Errntlc.
Coombs pltched a most erfatlc game,
glving nlne bases on balls. He got
lnto trouble in the first lnning by glv?
ing two of the first three men up bases
on balls. He got away with the ln?
ning with but one run agalnst hls
team. At, several other stages of the
contest, he was in trouble, but tlie
brilliant work of the men behlnd hlm
pulled him out of dlfflculties. Ho j
seemed to show better form when tlie j
bases were occupled than when the
bags were clear. Thls is shown by the!
fact that Chlcago had fourteen men ,
left on the bases. Chlcago'a inslde play]
dld not seem to be in working order.
for wlth the men on the bases and
Coombs unsteady. some sharp piece of
fleldlng would break up the lnning ar
ter there was every prospect of a score.
Mordeoal Brown pltched fairly gooa
ball in tlie early stages of the game.
and was Yiulte steady. The I'hlladel
phlans began to touch hlm up ln the
tiiird lnning. and in the seventh he
was hlt to all corners of tho fleld.
Nlne men went to the bat in this ln?
ning and scored slx runs on three dou.
bles. two slngles; a base on balls, an
error and a sacrlflce.
After that lnning he was taken out,
and was succeeded by Rlchle. In the
seven innlngs he pltched the "Whlte
Elephants" hlt him thirteen tlmes, for
a total of seventeen bases.
Firat Itun Scored.
Chlcago scored Its flrst run at the
beglnning of the game. After Sheckard
had recelved a base on balls and was
forced out by Schulte, Hofman was
glven four balls, Chance's single tllled
the bases, and Schulte scored on Zlm
merman's long sacrlllee "fly.
Kast double plays ended the chances
elther team had to score ln the second
lnning. , ' _
Wlth two on ln the thlrd, and none
out Chlcago was unable to score, but
tho' Athletics ln their half forged to
the frpnt. Stelnfeldt fumbled Thomas'a
grounfler, Coombs struck out, and
Strunk alngled. Lord-forced Strunk at
second, and then Colllns hlt lnto left
tleld for two bases, sending home botn
ihomas and Lord, Baker went out on
There was no more scorlng until the
flfth, when Phlladelphia added another
run to Its total. Strunk struck out.
Lord slngled and vas forced by Colllns.
The latter made his aecond steal, and
aftor Baker had received a base on
balls Colllns came home on Davis's
pretty slngle to loft. In Chicago's half
of the flfth 'Murphy made a great
throw to the plate, completing a double
play and endlng the lnning.
The Natlonal Leaguers scored their
second ruri ln the seventh, Biovvn
struck out and Shedkard sont u llne
drive inio the crowd for two bases.
Bohulte llfted a fly to Strunk, and Hof?

afternoon. The score
was o to 3.
The fatal innlns
yesterday was that notorious seventh,
when one teatn or the other 'nvariably
makes a cluster of runs. In that one
period the Mackmen made six juicy
runs, which put them on easy street
and sent the great Mordecal Brown to
the bench. Until that lnning 'he sam?
had been falrly close. wlth Coombs a
little unsteady, but having gilt-edgeu

Brown alld not come up to expecta

Ing hlm for the runs which made tht
game safe ln that seventh.
Bddle Colllns was the partlcular stat
to-dav. The grand little second sackei
outguessed Johnny Kling twice. and
pilfered second, which showed that af?
ter all a man like Colllns, who gets
?the start and has the speed and the
ability to sllde, can pllfer baa*es on the
man who has been touted as the best
the National League could produce.
Feature PIny of Game.
Danny Murpny c .ntrlbuted what I
conslder the feature play, a beauti?
ful throw to the plate, after catchins
a fly from Chance's bat,' when tha
bases were populated with three Cubs,
getting Brown, who 1 ad the courage to
try to score. The ball came to Thomas
on a slngle bound, and it was easy for
him to touch out the miner, who mada
a foollsh sllde.
The hitting of Collins. who had two
doubles and a single, Baker, Davis,
Strunk, Murphy, Thomas and Lord
was tlmely. and each of them played
some part in getting runs for the

It looked to me to-day as lf Coombs
had been savlng hlmself too much. Ha
ls a glutton for work, and should have
been kept at it more, just previous to
the world's series. Jack had good
control of hls curve ball, but his fast
ones shot wide of the plate. It is just
possible that ho should havo been slg*
naled for more curves ln tho early part
of the game.
I think the most lmportant part of
the gamo was that wonderful seventh
lnning. Collins, who had been hitting
good up until that innlng, frlghtened

Davls dlvlned thls. and as the Cub
twlrler hooked up another curvo. the
Athletics' captnin pulled it into the left
field crowd for two bases, scorlng Col?

Danny Murphy, the, iron-nerved rlsfhl

tho samo spot as Davis. It also was
good for two bases. and scored Baket
and the Mack captaln.
No one was out, so Barry added 3
neat sacrifice, which put Murphy on
thlrd. Thomas lmine.llately slammed a
beautiful sinsle to left, scorlng Danny.
