Giants and Dodgers Score Close Victories, While Yankees Again Fail to TlelMa^Ruri
Rickey's "Lost Battalion "
Beaten in Weird Game* 7-6
Benton Wabbles After Gaining Big Lead and
Dubuc Nearly Tosses Off Contest ? Three
Homers Feature ? Two Triples for Kauff
By W. O. McGeehan
The Giants surrounded Major Branch Rickey's "lost battalion" of
Cardinala in the plain below Coogan's Bluf? yesterday and toyed with
the bewildered visitors, the flnal score being Giants 7, Cardinala 6. This
looks close, but it wasn't, for McGraw would not have kept Rube Benton
in so long against a regular team. The Rube was pounded to a palpitat
ing pulp, and McGraw let him stay for punishment until it began to look
as though he would toss even that one away.
Therp wern snmpthlnc Hka +-tp?>nt.v-'6>
five hits all told, three of them beingi
home runs and two triplea. Which
ought to have caused a !ot of excite
ment, according to those who maintain
that a gamo replete with hittlng is |
what the fans like. They do not. They j
rlidn't like that game at all.
I with the leadera of the '
? ;'o.e CardinalB were a terrible
sight, so terrible that they have shaken
even the faith of Heinie Zimmerman in
the Salvation Army slogan, "A man may
be down. but he is never out!" Gazing
at Major Rickey's lost battalion, Heinie
scratched his head and observed: "My
dope has been crossed. These gnys are
both down and out for fair."
Suggests Handicapping
During the inquest which followed
the first inspection of the remains of
the Cards, John Thomas Doyle, author
ity on all sports, proposed a remedy to
keep up interest.
"It's getting so that they will have to
put the handicapping system in this
league," he observed. "Let all the other
teams spot the Cards five runs per
game Rnd so many games per series."
Be that as it may, the lost battalion
Wakes another stand to-day unless the
East wind holds out.
Despite their pitiable eondition, the
Cardinals gave Rube Benton all sorts
of trouble. The tobacco king of the
Carolinas brought nothing whatever
with him to the ball park, and was just
putting them over. He might have tied
the score for the Cards in the seventh,
but he was yanked in the seventh, with
the Cards coming up, and Monsieur
Jean Dubuc was sent in to the rescue.
Jean had a tough time of it himself in
the eighth, when the Cards bunched a
few singles and a triple for two runs.
The home runs occurred with such
frequency that they became almost
monotonous. Shotton got one for th;
Cards in the fifth into the right field
stands and out again. Hal Chase, who
is showing signs of shaking the batting
alump, got one into the left field
bleachers in the sixth. Art Fletcher's
was the longest, also landing in the
left field bleachers. Bennie KaufT was
moaning becauBe he only got two
measly triples.
Ross Young, the Snn Antonio Comet.
gave his daily pyrotechnical display.
In the second inning Mcllenry, beli^v
ing that the stories in regard to thi
flat trajectory of Young's throws were
highly exaggerated, tried to reach
third from tirst on "Dots" Miller's hit
to right. Young pegged him yards off
the bag, assisted by a one-hand eat").
by Heinie Zimmerman. That was the
one thrill among the chills induced by
watching the Cardinals.
The Harrowing Deta'ls
The detai'.s, which may be demanded
by the morbidly curious, will be made
as brief and matter of fact as possible
under the distressing circumstances.
The Giants started jogging to the
fore in the fourth when Burns led otf
with a single to right. Young was safe
while the Cardinal infleld got tangled
in an effort to stage a dotible play.
Chase hit to left and Burns scored
?when Doak absently intercepted n
throw that might have nailed GeorgK
at the plate. Doyle tapped one t'i
Miller, who threw out Young nt the
plate. Kauff contributed his first triple
to right, scoring Chase and Doyle,
and scored himself on Zimmerman'?
fly.
Shotton's homer in the fifth gave
tho Cards their first run, and the
pasting of Rube Bentor. continnod.
Stock singled and Hornsby sent him
to third with a hit. They worked the
double ateal for one run.
In the sixth the Giants got two mo,rp
when Chase made his home run, ar.d
Doyle got a base on balls to score on
Bennie Kauff's second triple. Rube
Benton waa yanked in the seventh
after Stock and Hornsby singled and
Raulette doubled for one run. Jean
Dubuc mounted the mound to do or
die and came near doing the latter.
In the aeventh Fletcher drove out his
home run.
Cardinals Threaten
In the eighth the Giants were so
weak with laughter at the Cards that
a serious catastrophe almost ensued.
The Cards feil upon Jean Dubuc with
a final convnlsion. Snyder sent one
with a bad bound past Fletcher for a
hit. Smith, batting for Doak, beat an
-.Infleld hit. Shotton drove one into
right for a triple, scoring tho pair
ahead.
By this time the merrlment that
twinkled in the cyes of Monsieur Du
ouc wilted he aettlcd down to
pitching ba. ultz was thrown out
by Fletcher. [Joyle juggled a poke by
Stock. Larry not only redeemcd him
-elf, but plastered himself with glory
a moment later when he fielded what
^oked like a Texas leaguer, by Horns?
by, and atarted a double that stopped
tho last gasp of the lost battalion.
The Giants will have no excuse for
delayed gamea hereafter. It eeems that
Art Fietcher hit a jitney watch sign
th* other day, which calls for chron
ometers for the team. Every Giant has
o?en provided with a ciock for the
wriat and another Ingeraoll for the
veet pocket. You can hear the Gianta
abov? th? roar of the "Ls" theae days.

Peck's Error
Opens Up Way
To 5?0 Defeat
Champion White Sox, With
Cicotte in Box, Triumph
Over Bob Shawkey
CHICAGO, May 23.?The Yankees
again failed to make nine hits produce
a run when they were shut out by the
champion White Sox in the second i
game of the series here to-day. The ;
score was 5 to 0. This makes a total
of eighteen innings in which the Yan?
kees have failed to get a tally. A like
number of safetles have also been
wasted. Rain fell to within half an
hour of game time, and the attendance
was less than 2,000.
The visitors were put on the defen
sive in the first inning, as was the case
yesterday when Peckinpaugh permitted
Gandil's roller to trickle through his :
legs, allowing two runs to cros3 the
pan. Chicago scored again in the
fourth and eighth frames, and in each
inning the local batters collected three
hits.
^ Chicago found Bob Shawkey, the
Yankee pitcher, for nine hits, and it
was the ability of the White Sox bats
men to bunch their bingles that
brought them victory. Ed Cicotte was
troublesome to the New York batters
with the exception of "Home Run"
Baker, who got four hits in as many
times at bath, while Peck got three
safeties in four efforts.
New York passed up many chances.
In the fifth Ptpp flied out when Yankee
runners clogged the bases. Bodie hit
into a double play in the sixth, with
third -and first bases occupied. Two
more batters were left in the eighth
when Lewis flied out. Risberg, F.ddie
Collins and Gandil snuffed out Yankee
rallies with two lightning double plavs.
After Pratt threw out Liebold in the
first Weaver hit safely to left. Col
lins's out moved him up a base, while
Jackson was purposely passed. Felsch
singled off Baker's glove, tilling the
bases. It was here that Peck let Gan?
dil's hit roll through him. Weaver and
Jackson scoring. Felsch was out when
he tried to reach home on the error.
The White Sox bunched three hits in
the fourth, nnd it was only Viek's fine
j return to the plate of Cicotte's hit
that stopped a run. The champions.
however, scored a run in this inning.
In the eighth the locals filled the bases
on two hits and a pass and scored a
run on Gandil's long fly to Bodie.
Schalk later singled, scoring Felsch.
Fewster was expelled from the game
in the seventh inning, when he vented
his opinion of Umpire Connelly's deci
sions after Ruel struck out.

A Number of Things
Yes, golf is so full of n number of things?
Such ns sliccs that go out of bonnds ?
I think tliat. is ivhy we are soiir as kings
Each time that we finish our rounds;
It is so full of bunkers and missed putts and traps
That. have us so mottled with shame,
I frequently iconder just why in the thunder
A fclloiv keeps playing the game.
To-day when you go out to swing at the ball,
You can't hit a shot from the tcc,
And to-morrow your viashie is no good at all
As you smcar every lie that you see;
And the next day your j>ufts never get near the cup
As you foozle aronnd with a curse;
If it isn't one thing that is wrecking your siving
lt is something that's even much worse.
The Latest Star
In 1908 Ty Cobb lod the American League with a mark of .324.
That same scason Hans Wagner led the National with an outburst around
.354. In the eleven years sueceeding that incident the National League
has never produced a batsman able to turn out figures even close to Cobb.
In 1912 Zimmerman rose to .372, but that season Cobb reached .410.
The margin has always been a wide one.
At last the older circuit has entered a new star to go out and give
battle against Cobb or Speaker.
His name is Ross Young, and, like Speaker, he claims Texas soil as
his native sod. This is Young's second year in the main circuit. He is
a better all around ball player to-day than either Cobb or Speaker was
at that stage of their careers. Young is undoubtedly one of the great
stars of the game?a slashing hitter, a star fielder, a fleet-footed base
runner and the possessor of a wonderful arm.
It isn't at all unlikely that he will not only lead his league this
scason, but that he will at last lift the National League up to the high
standard set by Cobb or Speaker.
The Stardom Interval
Spectacular stars emerge at rare intervals. Cobb fiashed in 1905,
Speaker and Johnson in 1908, Alexander in 1911 and Sisler in 1915/
Now we have Young popping out in 1918, with a strong chance that
Hollocher will also hold the heights.
In the last ten years out of the thousands who have. slogged along
the highway only three or four outstanding stars have lifted their noble
domes above the throng.
Young will be one of these if the ponderous dope is worth 10 cents
a hogshead at wholesale rates.
Those German peace delegates who brought their golf clubs to Ver
sailles must have been annoyed at the injunction "Replace the Divots."
They had been tearing up French turf for four years without replacine
anything.
"Keep your eye on the ball" applies to baseball as well as golf
Many an entry has remained a .210 hitter because he insisted upon
shifting his orb from the ball on its way to the plate.
Back in March and April the Giants looked to have a fine club with
a nckety p.tehing staff. After which, fine pitching held them up and
sent them to the front. Such is the sprightly dope-, always and forever
Impossible Discoveries

A golfer who can be beaten minus either an ailment or the worst of

A Revision
The time I've spent in wooing,
In courting and puriming,
The drive that flics
From cuppy Ucs
Has been my nerve's undoing.
Though "pros" have often sought me
I've crabbed the lore they brought me;
My only books
Are schlaffs and hooks
And cursing's all they've taught me.
So far Willard hasn't given out any interview to the effect that he

Flatbush Bats
Get to Work
In the Eighth
Schmandt Starts Rally That
Enables Pfeffer to Score
Seventh Straight Victory
By Charles A. Taylor
After a batting slump that had lasted !
for about a week the Brooklyn Dodgers
awoke suddenly in the eighth inning of
yesterday's game with the Pittsburgh
Pirates and before they were quieted
six runs had crossed the plate, and
what looked to be a losing battle for
Flatbush was transformed into a sen
sational victory. The final score in
favor of the minions of Uncla Wilbert
was 6 to 4.
Both teams presented revised line
ups, the Pirates in particular being
subjected to a thorough shaking up as
the result of the unsatisfactory show
ing they had made on their tour of
the East.
As for the Dodgers, Lew Malone, who
distinguished himself in the early
j games of the season by his clever field
i ing and timely hitting only to fade
! away into insignificance within the last
j few days, was succeeded at the third
j sack by Lae Magee. Ray Schmandt,
I who has been on the sick list for some
? time, took Magee's place at second, and
it was Ray that started the rally that
] won the game.
"Bullets" Miller Weakens
The opposing pitchers when hostili
ties opened were Jeff Pfetfer and Frank
"Rullets" Miller. Although Jeff was
I pounded rather savagely throughout
j the entire encounter he managed to
weather the storm, thanks to that
; eighth inning celebration staged by the
: Brooklyn batters. It was Jeff's seventh
j straight victory. Miller, on the other
, hand, had to be removed in favor of
I Carmen Hill after allowing only two
! hits up to the fateful eijrhth.
j The Pirates got real busy in the first
inning and the manner in which they
! cleuted Pfeffer's curves made the out
; look for Jetf and Flatbush extremely
| gloomy. Little Bigbee, the very first
i batter, banged the ball to centre for a
I safety. Terry rolled one to Schmandt,
! which tho latter fumbled, and both
j runners were safe. Casey Stengel,
former Dodger, who had a glorious
day at the bat and in the field, sacri
ficed, and then Bill Southworth, play
ing his first game of the Eastern trip,
smashed a hit to centre that scored
Bipbee and Terry.
These two runs kept looking bigger
and bigger as inning after inning
passed with the Dodgers helpless be?
fore the "bullet balls" of Miller. Robbie
had decided to remove Pfeffer in favor
of a pinch hitter when the tide was
changed for Flatbush in the eighth.
Schmandt started the fracas by
j singling to centre .Ernie Kreuger drove
! the ball to left for a double, tallying
j Schmandt. Pfeffer sacrificed, but our
| old friend Ed Sweeney, now catching
| for the Buecaneer, threw the ball
, widly to first and all hands were safe
j and sound.
Two Doubles in Row
Johnston was inserted as a base
; runner for Kreuger, and he counted al
i most immediately on Olson's single to
i left. Hill replaccd Miller on the mound
j for the visitors. Magee sacrificed and
? then Griffith doubled to left, scoring
j Pfeffer and Olson. Zach Wheat followed
I with another double to left, which
brought Griffith across the platter.
Myers flied to Southworth, nnd Ko
netchy walked. Schmandt, on his second
time up, hit another single, that tallied
Wheat. \
In the Pirates' half of tho ninth
Stengel drew a pass, with one out, and
was forced at second by Southworth.
George Cutshaw, another former Dodg?
er, cracked out a home run to centre
and Southworth tallied ahead of the
veteran second baseman. That was all,
for Saier made the third out with a fly
to Hi Myers.

Winner Will Face Dean
of Princeton in Semi.
Final Bracket To-day
Displaying excellent nerve, Lee Max.
well, the home favorite, defeated Gar.
tliner W. White, of Nassau, in a stiN
ring twenty-one-hole match in the sec.
ond round of the invitation golf touN
nament at the Sleepy Hollow Countr.
Club yesterday afternoon. The vtctorv
of the first named was all the rnora
gratifying for the reason that he nood
two down with only four hoies t?
play.
As a result he will meet J. S. Dean
the far-driving Princeton golfer, itt'
the lower setni-final bracket to-dav
while in the upper half Max Marston'
>f Baltusrol, who won the medal ia
the qualifying round. will have to
face D. D. Cooke, of Arcola.
White became 7 up earlv in hia
match with Maxwell by winning the
second hole in 3, and he also saved
himself at the third by bringing off
tn eight-foot putt for a 5, after bein*
ihort of the green on his third shot.
Maxwell took three putts at the sixth
and again at the eighth, losing the
first and halving the next. but by win?
ning the ninth hole in 3 he managed
to turn for home all even.
Misses Yard Putt
White became one up with a 5 at th?
tenth, where his opponent shovcd a
ma--hie niblick to the rough, and th*
Nassau man might have increased h j
advantage at the twelfth had he not
missed a yard putt. Both missed putts
at the short thirteenth, but White he.
came 2 up with a 4 at the fifteentk,
where his opponent was over the green
?on his approach.
Now two down. Maxwell won the six
teenth and seventeenth in perfect 4s.
The sixteenth is 510 yards and he
holed a fairly long putt after the ap
proach. A half in 5 nt the home hole
left them all square, each having made
the round in 41.
Neither man made a mistake at tht
first extra hole. halving in 4, but at
the short second both missed opnor
tunities for 3s. To the third hole or
twenty-first of the matrh White
shoved his second shot to the right of
the sand-trap, and. a'.though he recov
ered we!!, leaving himself a putt of
about five feet, he failed to hole it,
which gave his opponent the opening
he was waiting for. Maxwell got a 4
there and the match was over.
The card was as follows:
Maxwell. out 4 4 5 4 4 6 6 6 3- 10
White, out.. 4 3 6 5 S 4 6 6 t?tl

White, in... 5 4 6 a -, < -. - ;. ,?
4.**V h0les-MaxwcI'- ?? ;- *
In the meantime Marston, taking an
early lead over Hamilton K. Kerr of
Greenwich, always looked like a win?
ner. Out in 40, the Baltusrol man
turned for home 3 up, anu it might
have been 5 had he not taken three
putts on the first and third greens.
Marston became 4 up at the elevetft
lost the twelfth, but. bv winning tho
short thirteenth in 3, where his op?
ponent missed an eighteen-inch putt,
the Baltusrol golfer became dormie 6.
He then added another hole for good
measure by winning the fourteenth
and the match. 6 and 4.
Dean Plays Well
^ Dean played well in defeating G. L
Conley, of Siwanoy, 6 and 5,the Trince
ton golfer going out in 39, which in
cluded a 5 at the second hole and a 6
at the third. Cooke also surprised his
friends by defeating James C. Parrish,
jr., the well-known National Lir.ks
golfer. by a wide margin.
Although Marston always had the
better of the argumeni in his match
with W. G. Smith, neither of them
played as well as usual. Kortune
smiled on the home golfer at the ninth
hole down the hill. where the Baltusrol
man stood 4 up. The last f.amed
thought he had a half there until hia
opponent's bal! on a long putt car
romed off Marston's rubbcr rore into
the cup. That left Smith a winner
there. ?, to 4.
Marston took 41 to the halfway
point. The former New Jersey cham?
pion was dormie 3 standing on'the six?
teenth tee, so that a ha!f in 6 there
left him a winner, 3 to 2.
Despite the fact that White, in hil
match with A. H. Johnson, won by a
wider margin. the eariy ptnge-, of the
contest were more of a see-saw afftsir.
The Garden City man st.-irte.l bad!y,
losing the first when his opponent
brought orf a fifteen-foot putt lor a 4
on the first green.
At the next, however, it was White
who brought off the long putt, eightsen
feet or so, after a drive out of bounds.
They halved in 4 there, and White
?squared matters with a 3 at the fifth,
and became 1 up a little later when
Johnson, going to the sixth, siiced his
second shot.
A missed chip shot at the next ga*e
that hole to Johnson, but White won
the eighth in a "bird" 4 an-i the ninth
in 3, so that he turned for home :' up.
He went out in 39. After that both
men putted badly, but a 4 at the four?
teenth left Wh'ite the winner. The
bye holes were not piayed.
Kerr won from Frank H. Hcyt. of
the Engineers' Country Club, in the
morning, the match being carried to
the seventeenth green, while Maxwell
eliminated Dr. A. T. Ha;ght, Belle
claire. Cooke took the measure of A.
S. Bourne, of Garden City, while Far*
rish won from George A. Dixon, Jr<
National Links. by 1 up.
