Reds Defeat Giants Twice by One-Run Margins Before Record Crowd of 40,000
Groh 's Homer Wins First; Sallee Annexes Second, 2-1 McGraw Cast-Offs Decide Both Contests in Favor of Moran's Leaders?Errors Help in Downfall of Nehf and Douglas?Score of Opener, 4 to 3 By W. O. McGeehan Outgamed, outplayed and outluckcd by Pat Moran's Cincinnati Rods, the Giants lost two melodramatic gaines at the Polo Grounds yes? terday, slumping six and a half games behind the leaders. The first was dropped after a frenzied finish by the score of 4 to 3, the second by the ?ven tighter score of 2 to 1. What is conceded by the oldest inhabitants to be the record baseball attendance witnessed the obsequies. It is esti? mated that there were something like 40,000 persons looking on. Experts on high baseball explosives? detected en ominous sound during the two games?a sound as of the Giants cracking under the strain. The gloomy prophets who predicted that the vet? eran infield of the Giants would cave in were muttering their " told you sos." Perhaps this was what caused some lively encounters at fist-cuffs in various sections of the grandstand while the gruelling struggles w?re> en. It began to look like a world's series crowd long before the first game start? ed. The only things needed to make that illusion complete were a few gal? lons of bourbon and the presence of the National Commission. These two ingredient? properly mixed give the complete world's series atmosphere. Before the second game was well tinder way the green curtain in the centrefield bleachers had to be raised. Five or six hundred crushed their way through one of the exit gates when they were told there was no more room in the park. They found space to huddle (somewhere. Castoffs Are Factors Castoffs from the Giants had their revenge yesterday. It was Heinie Groh, a discarded Giant, who scored the winning run for the Reds in the fifth inning of the first game with a home run to the rightfieid corner of the lot. It was Slim Sallee, the slen Sheriff of Iligginsport, who held the Giants to three well scattered hits in the second and overcame Shufflin' Phil Douglas in as pretty a pitchers' duel as has been seen on the lot. The world's series frenzy was over the multitude. When it. seemed that the Giants had a chance to tie the score in the eighth inning of the first game the crowd began to tear up score cards and scatter the pieces into the field. Some of the more emotional gents tore up their straw hats and the ground was littered. But it seemed to require more than shoutings and scraps of paper to shake the supreme con? fidence which .Moran has instilled into the Kids. If the Reds can emerge from tins ,,.?-' "cril cal" series the way they have started, the race, as far as the Na? tional League is concerned, is decided even now. Psychologically the Giants seem to be beaten to somewhat of a frazzle at prt ?!:*.. The confidence with /hi? p the team started the early rush gone. The Reds-have that now. The multitude started chortling with -, , -,.'? ?: the Giants started with some eir old punch in the second in? ning. Chase singled, and after Kauft had pop;?e.i out to second Heinie Zim Bron bridegroom, singled ?o right. "Greasy" Neale made a wild tu 1 hird to ,iead off Chase, who was . afe at the bag. Frank Snyder shot snappy single to left and Chase and /?immerman scored. Nehl" Goes to Pieces In:; placed the record attendance n ,i jovial mood t'or the time being, but consternation shook the teeming tears 1." third when Art Nehf, recently acquired from the Boston Braves, be? gan to have an exceedingly uncomfort? able time. With one out Nehf passed Rath. rhen Daubert lobbed one down to the former codfish consumer. Art picked up the pellet, paused to meditate and then made a bad pet; to Chase, let? ting Daubert reach the bag. This did not add to Nehf's peace of mind and he went wild, passing Groh, which crowded the corners. Roush lifted a long on?? to Young, and Rath came home. After Neale had been hit by a pitched ball, filling the bases, Kept' shot a hit through second, and Daubert and i '. roh scored. The ground and ?..fty tumbling ol Benjamin Kauft, the demon coal miner, saved the Giants from further disaster ":: this inning. Sherwood Magee shot ? high one over the shortstop's head and it looked ?ike a sure single at least Benjamin came in, dove for the ball speared it, rolled over four or live times, then came to the surface with the pellet in his mitt. It was in the fifth inning that H??inir Groh, who had been warming a la*rge section of the Giant bench until Mc Graw, in a cruel mood, sent him tc < incinnati, niaile himself very obnox? ious to the Giant rooters by cinching : he '?/ame for the Reds. Groll shot on? to the right field corner and got al the way around the bags before th? ball could be relayed to the plate. Some o4- the fans seemed to forget tha Heinie is now on the payroll of Garn Herrmann, and they took this homer a? an act of treason against the sovereign city of New York. Giants Revive Ilopes McCarty went in to pinch hi! f? Nehl in the seventh, and Jean Dubuc who has been acting as undertaker fo games about to bo interred by th? Giants, finished out the two innings II. looked as though the Giants wer. about to revive in the eighth. Fletche got a base on balls. After Doyle \va m a high one to right Hal Chas cracked a three-bagger to right an? scored Fletcher. But Kauft choppe? to Hath, who trapped Chas? betwi third and the plate. Rigo morl set in once more for the Giant when the Great Zim greatly funne? out. Benny Kauft again stopped a rusl of Red scores in ihe ninth, With twi out Reuther and Daubert singled ii urn. This put one /nan on third ai ? Daubert stole second. The stage wai el for more brutality, and Heinii Groh, the avenger, was swinging hi club. Heinie hoisted a fast one ti centre, but just as the ball was abou to kiss the grass Kauft dove from nt where and ploughed through the tur on his nose. When he emerged fron the greensward he held the ball ii his hand, and the unnecessary slaugh ter was averted. The story of the second game is th story of the come-back of .Slim Salic?; the slender sheriff of Iligginsport, dis carded by the Giants as too elderly t get them over. Only twenty-eigh Giants faced the sheriff, so deftly dii he handcuff them with his bafflin; hooks. Only three hits were tallici against the keeper of the law and or der at Iligginsport. At the samo time the ominous rum ble as of our Giant infield crackiiij ?was plainly perceptible at this point even above the angry mutteringa o the multitude. The noise was partic? ularly audible In the fourth inning. Doyle Forced to Retire Ronsh reached first on Chase's er ror. Neale shot a twister to Doyle Larry got it as he rolled, over on hi.? back and shot the ball to first.

But "ill eas> " X( ale, v. ith a dash of speed and some elongation of his arm, reached the ball and speared it just in time I to rob the Giants of the last chance to I pull out of the mire. A mild drizzle fell through the sec? ond game, b.u the multitude remained chained to their chairs by the spell of tin' struggle, perhaps the dying strug? gle of the once haughty Giants. The gray head of John .1. Me G raw was not bobbing up and down as it does in battle yesterday. It was being shaken dubiously, especially during ? seine apparently unwise plays by the Giants. When Zimmerman was caught out trying to steal without sliding the olel gray bean was bowed in sorrow. Despite the fact that this series was supposed to provide a number oi homi? cides, there was no trouble outside of the few private fights mentioned pre? viously. Perhaps the fans are being nice to the Reds because they want ? nice treatment in Cincinnati when they go out that way to see part of t!n> world's series. Yankees Release Schneider Pete Schneider, who has been pitch? ing now and then for the Yankees. yesterday was released to the Vernon club of the 1'acilic Coast League. Schneider was obtained by the Yankees from the Cincinnati club last year, and although he showed much promise at the beginning of the season, was in need of much work to get into con? dition. Hi?

Johnson's Fate To Be Decided Here This Day League Directors Grease Skids for Czar, Who Must Kun the Legal Gamut By W. O. McGeehan The legal flypaper into which Ban Johnson, the crushed czar of the Amer? ican League, stuck both impetuous feet is becoming stickier and stickier every day, and life has become just one in? junction after another for the har? assed hermit of the Holland House. The board of directors of the Amer? ican League, composed of Charles Com? iskey, Colonel Jacob Rupperc atid Harry II. Frazee, meets at the Biltmore to? day to grease the skids for a quick and effective exit for the erstwhile president-secretary-treasurer - director of the league. It is not known whether or not Jim Dunn, of Cleveland, will be present. Mr, Dunn seems to be suffering from pen paralysis at pres? ent, but the business of the meeting can go on without him, as three di? rectors constitute a quorum. The hermit of the Holland House has not yet signified whether or not lie will be present at the int'ury into his conduct of the various offices which he has been bidding. He preserves the same dignified silence that he pre? served when he left the Holland House, disguised, by means of the dumbwaiter and had himself poured into the Twen? tieth Century Limited. Mr. Johnson preserves his dignity upon all occa? sions. He can sprint with excessive dignity ahead of a subpoena server. Must Use Own Money If the late e;*.ar wants to tight the Mays ease in the courts, lie probably will have to use his own money. On Tuesday Johnson was served with an injunction restraining him from using any part of the sinking fund of the American League for or in defence of any of the injunction proceedings now pending. The czar is ordered to ap pear before the Supreme Court, Part I, to-morrow to show cause why this in? junction should not be made perma? nent. This is called for 10:15 o'clock in the morning. At 11 o'clock Johnson is to appear before Attorney George .1. Gillespie, referee appointed by the court. Then Johnson will h?? examined as to the nature and extent of his interest m the Cleveland cluh and the nature and ex? tent of the club's indebtedness to him. Also he will be questioned as to the cause of his enmity toward Harry Frazee, owner of the Red Sox, and as to the purported suspension of Carl Mays, without notification being served on the player. From the scone of the examination proposed ii would seem that the Board of Directors of the American League is ready to bare every skeleton in the American League closet, witli the view of cleaning up the league once and for all. The order of this inquiry was granted on affidavits furnished by Charles Comiskey, of the White S?x; Colonels. Ruppert and Huston, of the Yankees, and Charles 11. Tuttle, of the law firm of Davies, Auerbach it Cor? nell. The order for the inquisition be? fore the referee was signed by .lust ice Richard P. Lydon, of the Supreme Court. Fight to the Finish In all other battles the Czar .had ac? c?s ?'. the sinking fund, and had am? ide legal talent at his disposai. This time it is the league directors against tiie Czar personally, not as an official, j and the Czar must protect himself in the legal clinches and in the break? aways. .,: ile Charles Comiskey was hinting, at. compromise a few days ago, it looks like war to the finish now. with the in evitable cleaning out of the American League, The rule or ruin policy of the ( ,ar seems mighty close to its finish. ' In the meantime, the old plan for a new head "or the .National Commission : is fi ing discussed. Johnson's power ' is through, and O. P. magnates are considering a new commission, tin head of which will be somebody who has not been associated with baseball politics. The finish of the Czar will accelerate Cue plan to reorganize the i commission and all its work-. Soul h worth's Hit Beals lira ves, 3-2, lu the 14th liming BOSTON, Aug. 13.

The argument as to whether Dempsey won in the third or the fourth round seems to hold a peculiarly small amount of interest do- Jess Willard, who seems willing to ?'all ?t either wav. The Son of Destiny Patrick Moran seems to be baseball's Son of Destiny. He came to the Cubs in 1906, the year they won lI? games and started their greal machine in motion. Leaving the Cubs, he joined the Phillies, ?ust before Grover Cleveland Alexander arrived and that club's fortunes started upward, lb- was the guiding spirit of the Phillies' best years. .Moving'over to Cincinnati, he smashed all records for that club before August blew in. There are some men whom success likes to tra?'. Pat Moran is one of the extremely limited few who are members of this organiza! So far Pat has drawn his share out of lour world series. Having developed the appetite or the habit be sees no reason why he shouldn't horn in on another just to round out the count. ? It remained for Roger Peckinpaugh to rise up and answer an early summer query, viz: "Who is the 1919 successor to Honus Wagner?" If they can only yank Kid Gleason back into reach and make him listen to reason, that American League carnival would soon have the natives of five cities running around in circles while emitting the plaintive, birdlike cry of the aroused fan.
