Giants Sweep Series With Cardinals?Yankees Defeat Browns by Score of 5 to 2
Duhuc Rescued by Toney;
x Close Call for Local Nine
Former Tiger Falter* in Ninth Inning, Cardinals
Coming Within One Run of Tie; Zim Only Vet?
eran to Hold Infield Position; Score, 7 to 6
By W. O. McGeehan
A reliable statistician has figured that if the Giants could play out
the season exclusively with the Cardinals, and if the Reds run into a
train wreck, the Giants might yet regavn the lead. Major Branch Rickey
presented the series, including the fourth game, to the Giants yesterday
by a 7 to 6 score and marched out ?f the Polish Grounds with all the
horrors of war.
The Giants finished the pastime with'!
a nearly all-infantile infield, made up
of George Kelly, Bill Lange's nephew;
Al Baird and Frank Frisch. I?einie
the Zim is the only member of the
veteran infield who still retains his
health and girlish laughter.
Jess Winters, who started pitching
?for the Giants, went out on a shutter
in the third inning and Monsieur Jean
Jacques Dubuc was hurried in to the
rescue. Bill Shordel, the southpaw,
who started for the Cards, was pasted
liberally in the first and positively
plastered right out of the pastime in
the second, after the Lost Battalion
had giv^n the game to the Giants.
Pick on Poor Umpire
The brooding; Cardinals picked exten?
sively on Umpire Harrison. When
?riticised by Lavan for low visibility,
Harrison commented upon the base?
ball ? playing of Lavan. Whereupon
Lavan retorted: "J"m rotten and I
know It. You're rotten and you don't
know it." And this was only part of
Gonzales, the sad faced Cuban, said
something to the umpire which made
it clear that he spoko English as well
as any mule skinner in the A. E. F.
The Giants started early. Shordel
passed Young and Doyle. Zimmerman,
who can hit lefthanders with his eyes
shut, singled to left, scoring Young.
Frisch shot a safe one to Heathcote,
who let the ball slip by. It was as
good as a triple, as Doyle and Zim?
With Kau.T out. Bill Lange's nephew,
(George Kelly, got under one and sent
?t out to left field for a double.
Frisch scored on the smash. Mr.
Lange will acknowledge his relation?
ship to the Kellys if this continues.
The Cards got one in the second.
McHenry and demons singled in turn.
Baird forced Clemons. Lavan rolled
one down to first and McHenry scored
while Kelly paused to meditate over
tho difference between frho pitching in
the International League and that of
the National League.
Zim Again on the Job
The Giants got one in the second
when Barns bounced a double off the
rightfield wall. Young was safo on St.
Louis Baird's error. Doyle shot one to
Stock, who threw out Burns at the
plate, Zimmerman sintrled to left and
Young scored. At this point Sherdel
was yanked and Frank Woodward re?
Winters started to go badly in the
third. Heathcote got, a base on balls
and Stock shot a hit through short.
'.:"^ors Hornsby, the ('ardi?al infieldor,
nt whom McGraw had been casting cov?
etous eyes, got his first smash of the
scries at this period. It was a two
bagger to right, and it scored Heath
rote. McHenry got a base on balls and
?lean Jacques Dubuc was hurled into
the breach. Clemons was safe on
Frisch's error and Stock scored.
In the fourth inning Young plastered
a single past Stock and got to third on
a burst of speed when Burns bounced
a hit from Woodward's mitt. -Burns
stole second and Young scored on
Frisch's out. Burns scored on a very
That made the game look safe
enough, but the Cards made a couple of
wild charges, which, aided by some er?
rors on the ..part of the infantile in
held, almost tied the score. In the
oighth. with Pickles Dilhoefer out and
back in the barrel, St. Louis Baird
singled and stole second. Lavan was
safe when Baird, of New York, fum?
bled his poke. Schultz, batting for
Woodward, popped out, and^Smith got
a base on balls, filling the bags. St.
Louis Baird scored when New York
Baird booted another. The drive
stopped when Zimmerman choked a
liner by Stock.
Bally Again in Ninth
There was considerable trepidation
in the ninth, when Rogers Hornsby
started the inning with his second hit
of the series. Mcllnr.ry was safe when
Zimmerman's throw dragged Long
George Kelly off the bag. Dilhoefer
forced McHenry. Baird drove a hit
;nl o the dirt in front of the plate and
The countenance of Undertaker Jean
Jacques Dubuc began to trike on a wor?
ried look. Lavam foiled Baird, bul
Miller, batting for Tuero, slapped a hi!
that bounded fvom the oily mitt ol
Jean Jacques, and Dilhonfor scored.
This brought tho Cardinals within on?
ran of t ? :;.. it v.;, in the ninth. Th<

ST. LOUIS, Aug. 22.?The Yankees

mood. They defeated the Browns this
afternoon, 5 to 2, giving them the

the idea that they will hand the league

Carl Mays, the injunction kid, was

batters so effectively that, the Hugmen
won the gamo handily. Mays was op?

Austin had singles to centre. Gedeon
beat out: a bunt, Austin taking second.
Jacobson went out on an infield fly to
Peck. Sisler, then batting, complained
about the ball that Mays was pitching.
Umpire Moriarty examined Mays's belt,

of emery or other illegal substance.
Failing to find any he ordered the game

bases, bull Tobin fouled to Hannah.
In the third inning Umpire Moriarty

That Guiltiest Feeling ,.-' - - ByBwccs

(Copyright, 1919, New York Tribune Inc.)
If any one ligures that baseball, racing, golf and lawn tennis have
come back with a distinct and dizzy rush this summer, wait until the
football season lands on us again in the next few weeks. Football is
coming back with a greater rush than any other sport and it takes no
prophet to forecast an unusual output of enthusiasm all along the line.
Football players were plastered all over France during the late
quarrel. The moleskin wearer rushed to war with a relish and those who
?still had time to serve in the collegiate halls will be rushing back to foot
hall with p. greater relish still, Another factor that will add to the
interest is the uncertain quality of play. It will be high in certain places
and a trifle ragged in others. But no one can yet sit down and call the
turn, although most of the collegiate clans are optimistic to a rare degree.
The highly esteemed Australians, Australasians, or Anzacs, are still
i distinct barriers in the way of any lawn tennis triumph for an outside
They collared us in the last Davis Cup trophy in 1914. Now a brace
j of Anzac officers on their way home, meaning Major Brookes and Captain
Patterson, wrest away the. doubles championship and upset several of
: our stoutest teams in turning this trick. It is hardly likely that even a
Brookes or a Patterson can survive a field at singles which includes
Johnston, Murray, Tilden, Williams, Voshell and others, but it is close
t.i_> a certainly that one of this pair, or both, may offer serious trouble
before next week's matches are finished.
These ?\nzacs can play tennis. They always could play tennis. When
? two of them, after long service in France, can drop off and beat in turn
such doubles teams as Johnston and Griffin and Tilden and Richards
there is very little debate left as to the quality of their play.
The Reds are now on the verge of bagging a National League
The Giants won in 1918, the Braves in 1914, the Phillies in 1915,
the Dodgers in 191G, the Cubs in 1918. The Pirates won their last flag
' in 1909.
?So, with the Reds on the verge of producing a long delayed triumph,
we now have one lone outsider in the National League. When will the
Cardinals be due? The St. Louis Browns bagged a few titles some thirty
years ago, but the team operating under the Cardinal banner has never
j arrived at any place very far removed from the second division.
Cincinnati developed a mental typhoon when the Reds tossed the
harpoon into the Giants, but if St. Louis ever won a pennant you'd inhale
a regular jubilee. Apparently there seems nothing left for St. Louis
to do except to send for Pat Moran.
Nothing new under the sun? How about Cincinnati printing estab?
lishments in late August bidding for the privilege of printing world series
What has become of the old-fashioned golfer who used to repjace
New York sent fifteen or sixteen golfers to the amateur champion?
ship and only one of them remained after the first round of match plays.
Apparently all that is left are the ancient and bewildered ghosts of Travis
and Travers, whose agile putters kept the big town on the golfing map. I
After a week of camp-following golf, where the range of various
matches is from twenty to twenty-two miles a day, the waiting benches
for the lawn tennis championship seem to be a wonderful dream. The I
| idea of being able to sit down in one place and observe a sporting event I
again is too overwhelming to be considered seriously. It couldn't happen. ;
If you think a baseball crowd is wild and woolly, swing with the golfing \
pack for a week, where serried mobs of beauty and chivalry are dash- ;
ing rapidly from spot to spot with every shot played.
The battle between Chicago and Detroit recalls the 1908 campaign, |
where the White Sox used Ed Walsh something like eight times a week to
break through. The two clubs were only a half nose apart when it came to
the final game, where Wild Bill Donovan stepped in and hoisted the
Tigers safely through. The wonder is that Kid Gleason has manoeuvred
his pitching staff so well, as the Kid has been forced to bank on only
two consistent winners. In the way of pitching the Tigers have the edge
for the first time since the days of Donovan and Mullen.
A number of American tennis players can now understand why the |
Turks didn't care to play any return engagement against the Anzacs at j
"Is ?Australia east or west from here?" queries a tennis enthusiast.
There is one thing you can gamble on concerning a fish. H?y always
bites better last week or two weeks later on.
