Chicago, Oct. in The Chicago Na
tional league team defeated the De
troit pennant winners of the American
league in the second game of tli
series for the world's championship
yesterday afternoon. The score wa
;! to 1. Slow pitching and several!
slight accidents caused the contest to
drag out over two hours, the delays
Hying the patience of the big crowd
which again filled almost every inch
of seating room.
The local team discarded the ne-v
gray uniforms in which they appeared
Tuesday, appearing in their soiled and
worn white home uniforms. The
change seemed to put them more a1,
ease and also apparently benefited the
Detroit players for both teams played
more steadily than on the opening
day. After the first rour and a. half
innings had dragged through an hour
and 36 minutes, some sparkling field
ing and sharp hitting and base run
ning hastened the contest to an end.
Mull: ii npiioMCM I'fleMtrr.
Mullin and Pfiester were the pitch
ers and Payne went behind the bat
in place of Schmidt. Otherwise the
teams lined up as on the preceding
day. Schmidt's retirement was due
primarily to his inaccurate throwing
but in this respect .the change brought
Mnall improvement as the five stole. l

as blew across the diamond and
lided the play more than it hindered
ltONNiimn'M Hitting a Feature.
Rossman, whose hitting was the
real feature of the contest, scored thd
first run of the contest in the second
inning. He hit a grounder toward
Tinker, which bounded away from
the shortstop and rolled far out to
left field, the batsman making three
bases on the hit. Coughlin struck out,
but Payne lifted a short fly to lef-
field which Tinker might have caughr,
but left to Sheckard. The ball fell
safe and Rossman scored. Payne stole
second, but O'Leary and Mullin coul.1
not bring him home.
CuIih Tie Seore.
Chicago tied the score in its half of
the inning on a queer exhibition rtt
poor and good pitching. Kling. Evers
and Schulte singled in succession, fill
ing the bases with none out. Then
Tinker drew a base on balls, forcing
Kling home. Rteht there Mullin sud
denly regained control of his curves,
striking out Pfiester and Slagle, while
the best Sheckard could jlo was a puny
grounder to Schaefer.
In each of the next three innings
Detroit batsmen reached first base
with none out, but poor base running
and the inability of the following
batsmen to find openings in the Chi
cago defense stopped the embryonic
rallies. Chicago missed a similar
chance in the third, when a double
play and a strike out left runners on
first and third.
The winning runs came in the
fourth. Tinker's hit bounced off Mul
lin s glove. Jle went to second on a
sacrifice and stole third. O'Leary
fumbled Single's grounder. Tinker
scoring. Single stole second and came
the rest of the way on Sheckard'
two base hit past first base. After
Chance had popped out Sheckard was
caught trying to steal third.
1'ri.st W ork SIoiim Further Scoriae.
After that fast fielding prevented
further scoring. O'Leary cut off two
hits by marvelous stops and throws
in the fifth and repeated the feat '.n
the sixth. Sheckard caught a low flv
off his shoe tops in the seventh, and
the three Detroit runners who reach
ed first base were- cut down by Kling's
As in Tuesday's game, a fast double
play stopped an incipient rally in the
last inning. This time, however, tin
visitors were the victims. Tinker
stabbed and held Coughlin's hot liner
and threw to Chance in time to doub'e
up Rossman, who had reached first o i
his fourth successive hit. Tayne end
ed the game with a little hit in front
of the plate which Kling threw to firs:.
The teams will play here again to
day, and then, unless a postponement
or tie game intervenes, will move ti
Detroit for two games, returning here
