It was through no fault of the outward
Sirroundings that the home team failed so
signally to realize the hopes of its friends.
Nature did her best, the skies were never
fairer, tho lawns greener, or the breezes
more balmy; a crowd that filed every
seat and far overtaxed the accommodations
of the grounds, giving pleasant assurance of
swelling coffers; a crowd enthusiastic and
greeting old favortles and new comers with
generous applause and warm appreciation
all ihepe were present but the one thing
needful for tho rooters' happiness, a victory
for the home team, was wanting.
Long before the hour of four arrived
great crowds were pushing into the grounds
and when game wascalled several thousand
people were fringing the field on all sides
and hundreds more clamoriug for entrance.
The lowest estimate of the attendance was
8,000, and probably 9,000 is a fair cal

These account for the result, but the
defeat was rendered more signal by the
three runs in the last inning of Boston,
duo to one of the most atrocious decisions
ever rendered on a ball field.
DuTfy was at the bat, with one hand out.
He Bent up a high fly down the left foul

men fielded excellently.
Crooks caught on at once, and made him
self solid with the rooters by such a stop
and throw of a vicious grounder from
Lowe's bat as has not been seen at the
hands of a "Washington second baseman
since the days of Al. Myers. He also
purloined second by a great bllde in the
third inning and cracked out a beautiful
double in the fifth.
Selbach captured four difficult flies and
put two three-baggers to his credit by rat
tling drives n't the right field fence.
Bill Hassjmaear, the pet of the bleach
ers, was for four Innings the only man who
could solve the deceitful drops of Nichols,
but he shared the fate of all the other

Old reliable McGnire drove a ball far
into the crowd and made the circuit of the
bases with ease.
Nicholson was the disappointment of tho
game, but although he lost half his chances,
it was clearly the result of over-anxiety.
He made several sharp and difficult stops,
which, with his record on Friday in Bos
ton, show what he Is capable of doing, and
excellent work can be confidently expected
Mercer pitched a good steady game, and
up to Keefe's wretched decision in the
eighth only one run was earned off him.
The three in that Inning should bo cred

"With that omitted, hits and errors were
easy, and the difference in the score is to
be charged to the superior team work of
Boston and the hcientifJo batting of Duffy,
McCarthy and Tucker.
The three worthies never did cleaner,
smoother work at the bat than to-day.
Their favonte trick of a double steal,
aided by a drive past second, was twice

THE PLAY IN DETAIL.
"Washington was first up at the bat, but
failed to find the combination, and retired
in order on easy flies.
Lowe and Long fell victims to sharp
work by CrookB and Nicholson, and then
Duffy poked a hot grounder past short.
McCarthy followed with a bounder to left
good for one base.
Abbey, forgetting that passes are barred
this year, gave this fellow a free ticket
to the fence, and Mac chased Duffy across
the home plate. Tucker coaxed for balls,
but waB forced by Collin's hit to Joyce.
Selbach'sgroundcr in the second caromed
off Lowe and asllassamerfollowedwitha
good single matters looked hopeful. Mc
Guire, however, could not find the ball
and Selbach was nailedaftorthethirdstrike.

After Nash had given Crooks a chance

Struck out and Joyce handled Lowe's
Crooks batted to first when Nichols made
a promising effort to bore a hole through
him, Btolo second and kept on to third when
Ganzel threw the ball into center; tho
next three men failed to get the ball out of
Washington crawled out of a hard place
Nicholson made a wild throw off Duffy's
grounder and McCarthy advanced the little'
fielder to third. Tucker hit finally to
first, but Gartwright stuck to the ball and
passed it to McGuirc, cutting Duffy
at the plate. It was a pretty play and well
applauded. CollinBgave Nicholson achance
to redeem himself which was accepted.
Tho fourth only added another egg to
"Washington's nest, while Boston doubled
Nash led off with a clean hit, and Nichol
son, in his anxiety for a double play, dropped
the ball which Joyce fielded to him off
Ganzel, and both were safe. A short passed
ball and two outs from short to first scored
both men. '
In tho fifth Crooks again reached third
Nash to Tucker on a close doclBlqn.in which
Mercor appeared safe, but waSifijain left.
The visitors won out in tljttlrjhalf. Mercer
was wild and Duffy got rouV'Bafla. Nichol

Tucker, afterscveral vain attempts to bunt,
drove a safe one to leftDpffy scoring.
Collins struck out, but Nicholson again
failed to negotiate Nash's hltand McCarthy
and Tucker crossed the plile jfash mak
ing tho fourth run of the inning on four balls
to Ganzel and Nichols' hit.
Tucker muffed Joyce's fly tn the sixth,
"WHAT "SCRAPPY1' JOYCE DID.
and after Abbey had filed to Collins Sel
bach drove a triple to right, but Joyce was
caught at the plate.
Boston added ono on sharp singles by
Long, McCarthy and Tucker.
Jim McGulre broke the monotony in the
seventh by one of his old timers into left
field, and after two men were out, Mercer
made the grand circuit on a single, which
got away from McCarthy.
Selbach then retired threo Bostonians
In order on grand stand catches.
The Senators began to get the hang of
Nichols in the eighth, Joyce leading with
a pretty drive but allowing himself to be
doubled when Long captured Abbey's fly.
Selbach again took the measure of the
right field fence for three bases, and as
Uassamer's long fly was dropped by Duffy
and McGuire hit safely, twomore runs wero
gained before Cartwrlghtstruckout.
Mr. Keefe's judgment aided by three hits
from McCarthy, Tucker and Collins, sent
the hub total up to fourteen In their half
of the eighth.
Mercer singled nicely in the ninth, but
could not get around.
