in a snowstorm, the New York Giants
yesterday defeated the Chicago White
Sox by a score of 6 to 4. The contest
was scheduled to take place at 2:30
o'clock, but did not start until 3
o'clock because" of the bltazard.
"No, I will not send the boys out
in such weather,", was McGraw's re
ply when asxed if he w as going to
play. Later he changed his ninid and
the game was on.'
Governor Edward F. Dunne, escort
ed to the mound by Manager McGraw
of the Giants and Manager Callahan
of the White Sox, opened the game.
He pitched' the first ball across the
plate like a Mathewson.
The Sox batted first. Weaver open
ed with a single to right. Schaefer
singled to right and Weaver took sec
ond. Chase hit safely to left field,
scoring Weaver. Chase then attempt
ed to steal second, but was caught.
Crawford was good for a three-base
hit Schaefer scored on Crawford's
hit. That was all.
Thorpe, the first Giant to face Scott,
hammered the ball over the left field
fence for a home run. This was the
I only run made in this frame. It was

sack. Merkle hit safely to Scott, Lo

knocked a home run, scoring himself
and the trio. Wingo fanned. Fromme
was out, Schaefer to Chase.
The Giants scored another in the
seventh. The Sox made a run in the
ninth, but had no chance for a rally
that would win.
Larry Doyle was the hero of the
occasion, for it was here that the
present captain of the National league
champions got his start in baseball.
The players were the guests at a
theatre party last night. At 11:30
o'clock they boarded their special
train for Peoria, where they are sched
uled to play this afternoon.
A telegram was received yesterday
by Manager Callahan stating that Tris

According to a report brought back
from New York by one of Packey Mc
