PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 18.—In a game filled with thrills the
Philadelphia Americans this afternoon administered a crushing de
feat to the Chicago National champions before more than 24,000
persons. The store was 9to 3.
The spectators received a shock when Pitcher Coombs showed
unsteadiness, but this was quickly forgotten a little later *Vhen the
fighting Athletics forged to the front.
In the seventh inning, when Captain Chance's splendid ma
chine was crushed under a cannonading of hits, the crowd's enthusi
asm knew no bounds.
The hero of the afternoon who shone as brilliantly in his de
partment of the game as Bender did in yesterday's contest, was
Eddie Collins, the star second baseman of the home team. This
former captain of the Columbia university nine electrified the crowd
by his sensational work.
The score books show that in his five turns at the plate, he
reached first base every time by making three hits, two of them
doubles, receiving a base on balls, and making a force play. He
scored two runs and sent two home; accepted nine chances without
an error; figured in two sensational plays that stopped Chicago from
running the bases, and last, but not least, the champion base runner
of his league, stole twice on the king of National league backstops,
Brown kept Collins as close as he could to the first base.
In the sixth, Collins outguessed the Chicago battery three times,
Brown pitching three wide balls for Kling to line the ball to second,
but each time Collins appeared to divine the play, and waited. Then
he made his dash and went into the bag from first as a perfect throw
arrived an instant too late.
TWIRLER COOMBS ERRATIC
Coombs pitched a most erratic game, giving nine bases on balls,
lie £Ot into trouble in the first inning by giving two of the first
three men up bases on balls. He got away with the inning with
but one run against him. He seemed to show better form when
the bases were occupied than when the bags were clean. This is
shown by the fact that Chicago had fourteen men left on bases.
Chicago's inside play did not seem to be in working order,
for with the men on the bases and Coombs unsteady, some sharp
piece of fielding would spoil the chance after there was every pros
pect of a score.
Brown pitched fairly good ball in the early stages of the game,
and was steady. The Philadelphians began to touch him up in the
third inning, and in the seventh he was hit to all corners of the field.
Nine men went to bat in this inning and six of them scored, on three
doubles, two singles, a base on balls, an error and a sacrifice. After
that, he was taken out and was succeeded by Richie. In the
seven innings he pitched, the "White Elephants" hit him thirteen
times for a total of seventeen bases.
Chicago scored its first run at the beginning of the game.
[After Sheckard had walked, and was forced out by Schulte, Hofman
Avas also walked. Chance's single filled the bases and Schulte
scored on Zimmerman's Inwv; sacrifice fly. Fast double plays ended
the chances either team had to score in the second inning.
, With two on bases in the third and no I
one out, Chicago was unable to score,
but the Athletics in their half forged
to the front. Steinfeldt fumbled Thom
as' grounder. Coombs struck out and
Strunk singled. Lord forced Strunk nt
second, and then Collins hit to tie left |
field fence for two bases, sending home i
both Thomas and Lord.
There was no more scoring until the
fifth, when Philadelphia got one across.
After Strunk had struck out. Lord
singled and was forced by Collins. The
latter made his second steal and came
homo on Davis* pretty single to left.
The Nationals scored their second run
In the seventh, which made the crowd
feel a little uneasy over Coombs' un
steadiness. Brown struck out and
Kheckard sent a drive into the crowd
for two bases, Si Unite flew to StrunK
:'.nd Hotman worked Coombs for his
third base on balls. Captain Chance
then came out and sent a hot single to
center, and ckard scored. Chance
was forced out by Zimmerman.
ATHLETICS' I.I'CKY SEVENTH
Then came the second half of the
seventh that broke up the game so far
as any doubt about the result was con
cerned. Collins led off with a base on
balls and di •■.■.• up at third on Baker's
hlnglo to right. Captain Davis hit into
the' left field crowd for two bases, Col
lins walked home and Raker went to
third. This brought up the hard-hit
ting Murphy, who sent a rifle drive
Into left for a double, and Baker and
Davis raced across the plate. Chance

The Angels will arrive from the north some time this morning
and with their coming the old feud between Hogan and Dillon is
scheduled to reopen. The first set-to will take place this afternoon
at Chutes park, commencing at 2:30 o'clock. Hogan is determined
on finishing in third place and his club is but a few points behind
the Seals, so that every game won from the Angels while Port
land is taking San Francisco down the line is so nmeh closer to the
coveted position. Hence, the Villagers can be counted upon to do
their utmost to grab the series with as wide a margin as possible.
On the other hand, there is nothing Dillon likes to do better than
to take a game from his rival, Hogan, so the coming series will be
anything but slow.
"Ilap's" men,are all in first-class trim and the Angels, with
a few exceptions, will be in shape when they wear off the travel
stains. The new outfielder, Kennedy, will hold down the left gar
den as regular Frank Murphy is in poor physical condition. "Bull"
Thorsen will be ready to work towards the end of the week, and with
the balance of the pitching staff working in tip-top fashion, the
games should be closely contested.
This will be the last meeting between the two ; teams until
the post-season series, and the dopesters will be out in force to fig
ure the chances of each club in the games after the regular season
Umpires Irwin and McGrcevy will arbitrate the series.
