Ruth Pitches Red Sox to 1 to O Victory in First World Series Game
Facts and Fancies ^^_By LOUIS LEE ARMS-_ "Stuffy" Busted In . EARL HAMILTON, the left-hander who won six consecutive pames for the Pittsburgh Pirates this spring, and then en? listed in the United States Navy, used to Bay of "Stuffy" Mclnnis, then first baseman of the Philadelphia Athletics: "If a left-hander should place a baseball in a burglar-proof box and try to sneak it across the plate in the middle of the night he'd find 'Stuffy* Mclnnis there waiting to hit. There's one bird who lives in luxury off left-handers. He can hit anything they pitch." We observe that "Stuffy" broke it up yesterday. Vaughn passed Shean, Whiteman blew himself to a single and then Mclnnis. catching one of "Hippo" Vaughn's southpaw shoots, firmly laced it to left field for the single that scored Shean and gave the Red Sox the first game. It appears that this Beries is going to run to form. Victory Was Merited 'fHE Cubs should have won, you say, but shoul dthey? In the first, 1 third, and sixth innings they had men In scoring positions. A single would have scored two runs and beat the Sox in two of these innings; in the other the score would have been tied. But Pick, Paskert and Deal couldn't deliver the essential wallop when the time came. Base? ball is, more than anything else, a matter of doing the right thing at the right time. Mclnnis did that Pick, Paskert and Deal didn't. Ruth in the supreme test surpassed Vaughn, even though the pitching figures would indicate that Vaughn had the better of an exceedingly interesting duel. The assertion that Chicago should have won merits specific qualification. Ruth Is Boston's Ace THE Red Sox, always a "money team," are legitimately jubilant. At worst they will come back to Boston with one victory and two defeats. More of such excellent pitching and they will do better. Should they win two games and lose but one in Chicago they will be the long enders in whatever betting is done after the third game. But the jig isn't up with Chicago. Far from it. Vaughn meas? ured up to expectations and proved that the Sox do not relish first class southpaw pitching. Mitchell has Tyler in reserve and he can shoot Vaughn back in the third game if necessary. It remains to be seen if Bush or Mays, right-handers, can do as well against the. Cubs as Ruth did. Ruth is a great personality on a ball field. A giant in stature, resolute of purpose and with a wonderful "single-track" brain, re represents almost the ideal athlete for competitive effort under groat -Tain. Bush and Mays are not Ruth's equals in tem? perament. , Fielding Rather a Surprise I THE fielding was a surprise. There were no errors, but neither were there hard chances. Chicago hit the ball into the air in the pinches and it is a bit early for any one to pull a Snodgrass. The Cubs' steck might have soared had the ball been hit on the ground and at one of Boston's "green" infielders. Likewise the Cubs ac? quitted themselves with honor in the field, but few of their plays, too, were made under strain. It is an old superstition that the team which wins the first game takes the series in this play. But it doesn't follow that there can't be exceptions to what has iUogically come to be regarded as a rule. The Sox met the rest best yesterday, but more of the Vaughn type of pitching and the Cur>s cannot fail to come through. Boxing News and Notes _By FRED HAWTHORNE_ Colonel John "Barber" Reisler, K. C, B. (Knight Commander of the Brush), advices from the Broadway front state, has won a great victory ever Jack Rearms and .Tack Dempsey, forcing the latter to beat a "'strategic" retreat and capturing 10,000 "iron ner " It will he remembered that Colonel Reiiler has been doing the bloodhound ?renter' - tra?3 of Messrs. Kearris and Dem: - y fi r the past year, more or less, waving hi? old contract with Dempsey and "letting the injunctions fill where they may."

Chicago Cubs Have Many Chances to Win From Boston, Bat Hits That Would Have Turned Tide Are Lacking Base on Balls to Shean in Fourth Inning Decides Battle By W. J. Macbeth CHICAGO, Sept. 5.?The Boston Red Sox won the opening gama of the series for the world's baseball cham? pionship of 1918 from the Chicago Cubs at Comiskey Park this afternoon. Much of the customary hurrah of this annual classic was lacking, but the game was such a one as to llvs long in the annals of the diamond sport In a wonderful pitching duel, In which each manager staked his most for? midable southpaw, the mighty "Babo" Ruth vanquished the giant Vaughn by a score of 1 to 0. Though beaten, neither Vaughn nor tho supporting Cub cast was in any way disgraced. It was such a game as one seldom i sees in the final title battles, some- i thing which approached the acme of j perfection in every line.. As had been predicted, this one game at least made j good the prophecy that sterling box work would predominate. Perhaps because of the excellence of the rival pitchers the hard fought engagement did not develop the customary thrills one looks for in the blue ribbon of sports. A Perfect Game The game was just a bit too perfect to be as interesting as it might. There were no errors, either of commission or omission. There were wonderful fielding plays, it is true, but these were the exception rather than the rule, and they were, turned with a daring that made them appear scarce? ly part of mechanical, machine-like precision. To such excellent advantage did the rival boxmen appear that from the start it seemed but a question of which side would first score. The. fur? ther they went the stronger and bet? ter both Ruth and Vaughn appeared to grow. Rig Jim was unfortunate enough to havp the big break against him. Tltis was in the fourth inning, when was seen the or.I.v vital action of the afternoon. Vaughn, whose game on the whole was quite the equal of Ruth's wizadrry, %vas unfortunate enough to han ? 1 out the first pa<-.s of the game to llave Shean, first, up in the fourth, nnci from that gift resulted the only run of the. day, There followed two clean singles, from the bats of White.man and Mc Innis, the punch required to earn Shcan's passage home. If Vaughn is tn he criticized at all for hi? slight lapse he should not. be criticized jor handing over the free ticket to Shean, but for apparent care le ? , in ' ? tossing to Whitt man and Mclnnis later when he was in tight quarters. Every ball player and student of the game knows that Jim Vaughn lias nothing to brag about in the way of a curve ball. His fast one is his chief stock in trade. Yet Vaughn, in the hole, fed curve balls both to Whiteman and Mclnnis, and it was the se offerings against which the Red Sox batters lea.: to assure the visitors first blood of the tilt. Cold Wave Mars Attendance Py and by we will get down to the vitals of the game in question. A word or two now on the general color scheme, or rather lack of color. The crowd seemed smaller than th? re? ported 19,000 odd. Perhaps many were kept, away by the cold wave which hit the Windy City over night, following a doing?. There was nol the customary interest one expects in Chicago. The series attracted less attention from the start, than the pageant in Grant Park. If any betting developed over the result of this particular series those who made the wagers took good care to conceal their identity. In short, it was a sort of bust, this open? ing gam? of the 1918 baseball classic. Kven the players involved seemed to show less dash and spirit, than in years gone by. Perhaps the knowledge that the game has given away to war is too great an obsession and oppression for a profession which has been pampered and petted after the fashion of tem? peramental operatic stars. A genuine brand of world series weather prevailed. The wind swept in off' thp lake with penetrating force so that most, everybody was frozen to the marrow bef?te play was called.

Pick had i an easy double play before him. but i fumbled and was lucky to recover the ball for the one out. Killifer threw; out Strunk when tho latter tried for second on a short passed ball. The Cubs gave their followers a thru! in their half of the first by fill? ing the bases. Flack had been called out. on strikes and Hollocher had been thrown out by Shean before Mann's grounder took a treacherous bound over^Shean's head for a scratchy hit. Paskert followed this with a clean single to loft, he getting an extra base when Whiteman threw late to third for M-inn. Ruth took no? chances with right handed Merkle and finally passed Fred, filling the bases. Pick connected wick? ed'.'., but his une drive went right at. the veteran Hooper, who made a nice catch. That, it developed later, was Chicago's one best chance to get away on the right foot. The Cubs had chances later in the game, it must, be admited. Flack opened the third with a single through the box and Holoeher sacrificed. One of the most wonderful plays of the after? noon developed on the bunt in ques? tion. Thomas, on leave from the Great Lakes N'aval Training Station of this vicinity, hail to come in like a Jimmy Collins for a barehanded stop and a blind peg. He made good on the long chance, but his throw carried almost into the flying legs of the runner. A Wonderful Stop Mclnnis saved the situation by f wonderful one-handed catch. It was ; most dangerous play for Mclnnis t( attempt, but had the ball got past t< the stands there is no telling how mucl damage would have resulted. Certainl; Chicago could have banked on on? run, at least. Ruth tightened u\ then against Mann and Paskert, wh? were retired on easy grounders. Again in the sixth the Chicago ciu' gave its patrons a few thrills. Wit; only one down, Paskert and Merkle sin gled in order. Pick connected solidlv hut, fortunately for Boston, straight a Mclnnis, wh'i smothered the clip an beat, his man to the bag. With th winning run on second base. Deal' best was a long fly to Whiteman. Only two other Chicago runners g? close enough for a speaking acquair tance with Mclnnis, and both time after two wire out. Flack was hit i 1 the shoulder by a pitched ball in th fifth. Deal scratched a hi- to Thorn? in the ninth. McCabe ran for him, bi ! Killifer ended the battle with a fly t Hooper. Boston after its first lurid innin i found run-making dilficult in the e: i treme. Whiteman opened the secor i with a clean single and Mclnnis sacr ; ticed. Scott lined out to Flack. Thorn: : sent a dribbler toward first base. Tr ball hit Vaughn on the heel at caromed into Merkle's hands. Vatigr then covered the bag for Merkle i throw, which just did retire Whitema ? Hooper singled in the third, but tv : were out and he was caught stealing. Then came the fourth and Bostor somewhat lucky win.

"However, credit is due Ruth for his wonderful pitching. The Cuba have ferretted out the weak spots of the Red Sox and the score will tell a different story to-morrow. I haven't decided whom I shall pitch, but it is likely to be Tyler." "We got the jump on them to* day and the Red Sox are confident of repeating to-morrow," said Manager Barrow of the Boston club. "Ruth pitched great ball and I certainly shall start him back at the Cubs when we play in Bos? ton. I haven't made up my mind whom I shall pitch to-morrow. It will either be Mays or Bush. Base? ball is a long way from dead, judg? ing by the enthusiasm and size of to-day's crowd. We will have I even a bigger opening day crowd j in Boston." game Boston was able to get only two runners on the paths. These resulted from passes, both of which came in the ninth inning. Big Jim handed Shean a free ticket to start the ninth. Then, after Strunk had sacrificed and Whiteman had struck out, Vaughn in? tentionally passed Mclnnis in order to try conclusions with the right-handed hitting Scott, a trick that worked, as the latter tapped to the box. Lefty Tyler will be given the assign ment for the Cubs to-morrow. Man? ager Ed Rarrow of the Red Sox can afford to gamble now, and is likely to start Jones, his young sensational right hander, against the puzzling Ty? ler, who figures to give Boston plenty of trouble. e Mackie Best Ball in Foursome at Inwood Jack Mackie, the Inwood Country Club professional, and Jimmy Crosson, the Wheatley Hills Golf Club profes? ional, played on eighteen-hole match yesterday over the Inwood Country Club course for a purse of $1,000 for the benefit of the Red Cross.

Crosson, to whom the | course was new, went around in 75. two strokes over par, while Doremus did an 82 and Tobias an 83.

"Brick" Mclnnis made the hit that won the game in the same fashion that his brother "Stuffy" made the hit that won to-day's game for the Boston Red Sox in Chicago. ABadMix-Up In Fourth Race, Defeats Flags Fairy Wand Gets Beyond Control?IVlax Meadow Wins Steeplechase By A. C. Cavagnaro There was much gnashing of teeth after the fourth race at Belmont Park jesterday when Flags, the public ? favorite for the Autumn Highweight ; Handicap, at six furlongs, was forced I to trail home in the ruck. The trouble was caused by Fairy Wand, which be? came unmanageable in the hands of I the diminutive Jockey Willie Mideley, ' jr.. and for a moment threatened to i knock the other horses off their feet. Jockey Midgley managed to regain ! control of Fairy Wand and get her I home in front, but the judges, after j hearing from several jockeys and I patrol judges, disqualified Fairv Wand. j This gave A. K. Macomber's Hollister | the winning position. Flags "-as on the extreme outside I position, and during the first three fur? j longs the field of five horses swept I down the track close together, with ? Fairy Wand slightly in the lead. Pass | ing the third furlong post, Fairy Wand I suddenly swerved, bumping into Papo i and Ima Frank, and, knocking them i back, proceeded to rush toward Flags %nd carry him dangerously near the ? rail. It was the qujckwittedness of jJockey Larry Lyke that undoubtedly i save the life of Flags, for he pulled 'up his charge as Fairy Wand raced ? madly or, alongside the fence. Although knocked out as a contender, ; Jockey Lyke roused Flags and chased Hollister, who had avoided the inter? ference by reason of the inside rail ! position, and Ima Frank, who managed ; to come on under hard urging by Jockey Jack Hanover. Flags suaceeded j in passing the finish line in third posl ? tion, but the judges gave the place to Papp, who was fourth. The two-mile steeplechase for : maiden four-year-olds and upward i furnished many thrills, and also sorrow for those who fancied one of the '; choices. Max Meadows, Mocassin 3d (imp.l and Toppy Nix were staging a ; pretty fight for the honors when Toppy i Nix first came a cropper. This left ! Mocassin 3d and Max Meadows to fight I it out, but Jockey Powers, on Mocassin ( 3d, was sent hurdling over his horse's - head at the second jump from home. ' Max Meadows then went on unmolested ; to win and get out of the maiden class ! in her sixth year. A. K. Macomber sent across another j winner in the sixth when War Kis3 stood a hard drive gamely to win by 1 a nose. Sunny Slope Sells for "More Than $25,000" William Martin, the horse owner, ? annotinrnd yesterday that he had sold I Sunny Slope, the three-year-old colt, i for a sum "in excess of $25,000." Mar ; tin's indulgence netted him a big gain : for when he purchased the colt as a ? yearling he paid $250. During the last season Sunny Slopo, : who is by Astronomer out of Neva V.'. by Kay del Sierras, has proved himselt [a great racehorse. In the first ta I eason Sunny Slope defeated many crack rivals, turning in consecutivt ; victories on last Monday and Tuesday i Sunny Slope was purchased at the ! bttr price by the Beach Stable, a nev, ! organization for thoroughbred prestige j which has secured the set-vices of Rich ? ard F.
