Yankees Defeat White Sox in Twelfth ? Giants Win and Tie ? Dodgers Now First Ifugmen Suddenly Wake Up And Play Snappy Game Carl Mays Holds Own in Duel With Cicotte Until Ninth; Quinn Finishes on Mound and Gets Credit f or'Vietory ; Bodie and McMullen1 Wrangle By W. O. McGeehan The jui?k man who has been lingering near the Polo Grounds for the last few days expecting Colonels Ruppert and Huston to sell him th? Yanks said "Giddap" to his nag yesterday and drove away in a huff. The Yanks won a twelve-reel thriller from tho White Sox and ceased to resemble iunk in any resuect. Tied in the ninth and headed in the tenth, They stopped the rush of the Sox, and won the game in the twelfth by the score of 6 to 5. Carl Mays held his own in a duel? with pitcher Cicotto of tho Sox until the ninth, when the bittling Sox started to paste him. He was yanked for a pincher in the tenth) little Sammy Vick,-who led the drive to a tic with a two-bagger. There were no borne runa by Babe Ru It, because Mr. Ruth did not participate in the pastime. He was bitten by an inf riated mosquito Beveral days ago and is threatened wit.i an attack of the Jersey Jiggers, which is a form of dry hydrophobia. While the gam^ was going on there was a side battle that threatened numerous fatalities. McMullin, of the White Sox, coaching at first base, hit Ping Bodie behind the ear with a hand? ful of aspersions. The Wonderful Wop invited him out behii d the clubhouse to have it out on straight Marquis of Raspberry Rules. They left the ?ame flat and started out of the lot, but peace delegates from both clubs dragged them back. They were breathing de? fiance with short pants for the rest of the game.' This bout may be the next staged at the Lambs A. C. Qnlnn Lays Down Bunt The winning run in the twelfth in? ning was scored against little Dick Kerr, who made the Yankee nannies bleat with angtiish on the previous day. Ruel nicked him for a hit past third end John Ficus Quinn laid down a use? ful sacrifice, for Peckinpaugh came up ?ext with a clout to left that scored Rue! and caused the Yanks to pause in their career of shame. Mays got a big hand when he came out for the first time. He pitched a g-od game, after looking wabbly in the first until the ninth, when he" be? gan to show signs that he needed help. In the first inning, with one out, Ed? ward Trowbridge Collins singled to left and went to third on a heavy swipe by Shoeless Joseph Jackson." Hap Felsch brcught Collins home with an? other single. It looked as though Mays might be pounded. The Yanks came rieht back in their half and tied the score. With Peckin? paugh out, Pipp was presented with a base on balls. Lank Bob Meusel, still ! wearing his graceful limp and under? studying Babe Ruth, came through with a two-bagger that sent Tipp to third. Pipp scored on Pratt's out. In the second inning the Sox flashed into the lead again. Schalk led with a single, and Cicotte. the former shiner, got himself a two-bagger to left. Ed? ward Collins came through with one of those frequent singles and Schalk j scored. Buck Weaver brought Cicotte ! home with a single. In the third Peckinpaugh got a base i on balls and scurried to third when Wallie Pipp hit to right. Lank Bob Meusel lifted one that looked good for many bases, but Hap Felsch speared it and Peckinpaugh dashed in with a run. Launch Drive on Cicotte In the fourth inning the Yanks made something of a drive on Mr. Edward Cicotte. Duffy Lewis started it with [ ? single, but was forced by Ping Bodie, the Wonderful Wop. Ward lined out to center. Muddy Ruel singled and sent Bodie to third. Mays, who has been connecting quite frequently this season, brought Bodie home with a ! single. PecKii.paugh slashed a long! one to left field and Ruel scored. Mays j tried to come homo on the same smash i and might have made it, but he re-1 fused to slide and a fine throw caught him at the plate standing up. From then on to the ninth May.?, and j Cicotte were engaged in the pitchers' duelling bus'-ncsa. Then the Sox rushed the Yanks. With Murphy, a | pincher out, Amos Strunk hit safely, i Edward Collins >'rove a single over second ir j right. Weaver cracked a! double to right, Strunk tallying and the score was tied in the ninth. Then the fight started in earnest. | With one out in the tenth inning, Ray! Schalk socked out a two-bagger. Ward j made a pretty stop of what looked like; a sure nit by Wilkinson, the second i White Sox pitcher. Then Amos Strunk, ? the ex-Apathetic, came through with a ; clash into right that scored Schalk and j pot the Sox a run in the lead. Back came the Yanks in the same in- ! ning. Sammy Vick was pried to? ^e from ; his moorings in the dugout to ba?. for) Mays, and our little Sammy soaked a two-bagger along the right field line. Fewster went out to run for him. Pi-ck Inpaugh was thrown out by Eddie Col-1 11ns, but Walter Tipp singled to left | and scored the run that tied. Lank | Bob Meuaol lifted one so far into left; center field that the ball seemed about ? to drop into the center field bleachers.) But it was just a trifle high, and Felsch got it against the buck wall. With the Sux up hi the twelfth the Yank fans had a case of heart failure caused by John Picus Quinn. With one out and one on John made a heave that would have rolled 'o Warsaw if it hadn't rolled into thf; Sox dugout, and Risberg, the soulful Swede, went to third on it. Jourdan, batting for Wilkinson, lashed one to Peckinpaugh, who threw to the plate and the Swede was pinned by Ruel an inch from the dish. The Yanks were saved by that margin. Then came the charge of the Yanka headed by-Ruel's single and finished by Pipp's smash to left. The fifteen thousand odd customers were limp from the strain by this time. The Bodie-McMullin incident is not yet closed. The gladiators are won? dering whether or not Tex Rickard would consider the match for some off night in the Garden. To-day martial music will be furnished by a riveters' hand made up of veterans who riveted side by side with Ping Bodie, the Won? derful Wop, during the great war. The band has had all its rehearsals in the boiler riveting factory and has not yet heard itself. The Score CHICAGO (A. Ulr. I NEW YORK (A.

They gave positive proof of that yesterday. Not only did they infor? mally agree not to heed any petition that may be in circulation to bar the New York pitcher from playing, but they batted against the twirler who un? fortunately threw the ball that killed Rn;.- Chapman. Manager Gleaaon is very much against the move to boycott Mays and says his players feel the same way about the matter. He declares it is un? just and cowardly to attempt such agi? tation at this time, when the New York ' pitcher is in need of sympathy. Asked about the report that some of the clubs in the league were petition ini to boycott Mays Colonel Jacob Ruppert, part owner of the Yankees, pointed to the box where Mays was pitching and said: "There is our answer. Mays is pitch? ing and will continue to pitch in his regular turn." Phillies Trim Cards In First of Series ST. LOUIS, Aug. 27.?Philadelphia opened against St. Louis with a 3 to 2 victory to-day.

Hilidales Strengthened For Games With Bears Word was received here yesterday that the Hilldale team of Philadelphia, which is carded to met Jeff Tesreau's Bears at Dyckman Oval, near the Dyckman Street subway station, to? morrow afternoon, has signed two star players of the Indianapolis Giants, champions of tho Middle West, and that these players will make their debut with the Hilidales here. Tho Hilidales yesterday won their third consecutive game of the week in Philadelphia. Santop and Francis, former stars cf the Lincoln and Royal Giants, each connected for a "home run. The Hilidales a few weeks ago broke even with the Bears in the first game of their series. % A I BASEBALL TO-DAY* 8.00 P. M- *TOIX> Ground?. Yankee? vs. Chicago.?Adv. X??/ \*^<?y Grsntlan? Wem (Copyright, 1920, New York Tribune Inc.) The Start ?and Finish A pink-tinted beginning and a victorious finish are not always directly connected. It is always well enough to get away neatly, but with a long stretch in front of you this swift starting stuff may work with backspin or reverse English. There is the case of Jim Barnes and Walter Hagen. Early last spring they were in a class beyond much competition. Hagen was open champion and Barnes professional champion. Barnes finished fifth in tho British open, and Hagen, after a bad splash there, won the Metropolitan open again. Barnes?Hagen?and no one else. But what about subsequent details? Hagen finished well out in the late open and Barnes was promptly deposed in the P. G. A. championship. Both lost their main title without making it close. ?And as they faded out Jock Hutchison, playing badly early ?n the spring, steps forward with easily the best record of the year?Western champion, only one stroke out in the open championship, and now profes? sional champion at match play. Jock had the slow start and the pink finish. And it's where they all happen to be at the finish that usually settles the arguments. They rarely pay off on .starts. Another Example Four ball clubs hold most of the interest through the first three months of the pennant race. Cincinnati and Brooklyn were fighting out the National League championship, with Cleveland and New York in a hammerloek for the American League pennant. No great amount of attention was paid to the Giants and White Sox. The Giants pray??d lop-eared ball for the first two months, while the Sox iagge-) well behind. Through May, June and early July neither club figured in any world series argument. They may not meet in a world series now, but they ard no longe, negligible factors. In spito of their ragged start, what other two clubs carry a stronger chance? Holding Form There's a reason, as the snappy saying goes. Reaching top form foi one set affair isn't so hard. But where a long all-season drive must be faced the problem o: reaching and holding form is the hardest assignment on the map. Cleve land looked to outclass the league as far back as last March. But Marc] and October are many gray leagues apart in sport. Hagen and Barnes began training for the British championshi] back in February. By August neither looked to be the same golfer. Years ago West Point went out to beat Yale early in October. B; training for this battle the Army team trimmed the Bulldog consistently But having reached winning form early in October, the same team wa unusually easy picking fur the Navy. You can't hold top form indefinitely. A ball game won in April an early May is as valuable as a ball game won in September, but club leading the league in April or early May rarely win pennants. It's a tidy idea to start setting the pace in a hundred-yard dash. Bu when it comes to a ten-mile ruce the pace setter gets the worst of it. Tilden's Case Tilden faces this same problem at Forest Hills next week in th turf tennis championship. He reached spectacular form two months ago. He was at his be? in the British championship. And at his best he is next to invincible. Can he return to his best again for another big week? It is neithc easy to hold top form nor to ease away and then come back in the san year. It may be that he has turned tho trick?or that his tennis genii is sufficient to take him safely through. Johnston was hardly at his best either at Wimbledon or at Newpor He seems to come along gradually until the week of the big event ovt here, at which point he, too, becomes close to invincibility. The fact that he was beaten once or twice before may work in h favor through the week of the main carnival. Busy Days for Bacharachs This will be a busy week end for the Bucharnch Giants of Atlantic City, who returned last week from a successful trip through the Middle West. The Atlantic City ball players will tackle the House of David nine at Ebbets Field this afternoon in a game that was post? poned fiom last Saturday and to-mor? row the Bacharachs will have as their opponents the Lincoln Giants in a double-header.

Koney Paves Way For Cubs9 Defeat By Double in 8th Pram o Special Correspondent CHICAGO, Aue. 27.?The Brooklyns ! defeated the Cubs here this afternoon by a score of 6 to 3 and moved Into I first place. Both sides hit harder than the score indicates, each making four- ! teen hits. Jeff Pfeffer, Robbie's big I right-hander, was on the slab for the Brooklyns, and he lasted the entire dis- ' tance, but in only one Inning did he succeed in retiring the Cubs in order. Claude Hendrix started for the Cubs, and in the eighth gave way to a pinch hitter, and Carter finished the game. The Brooklyns fielded in a spectacu? lar manner, and five times brought Pfeffer out of tight spots with double ! plays. It was one of the best fielding I games played by the Brooklyns this ! season.

McGraw Men Gain Victory In 17 Innings Nehf Outpitches Ray Fisher; Douglas Going Strong as Second Game Is Called By R. J. Kelly CINCINNATI, Aug. 27.~-Tbo Giants yanked the champion Reds out of first place by winning the first game of a double-header in the seventeenth inn? ing hero to-day by a score of 6 to 4. The second game was called off on ac? count of darkness at the end of the fifth inning with the teams deadlocked at 0 to 0. The victory put the McGraw men only two games behind the home players. Cincinnati is "all het op" over the "croocial" series with the New York? ers and more than 18,000 rabid rooters jammed their way into Redland field to-day. Both games were marred by several near riotous scenes. The haughty Reds acted in their usual dis? graceful way whenever anything went wrong. Despite the many arguments none of the players on either team was banished from the field. Shuft?in' Phil'Douglas, who was on the mound in the second contest, went along at a great rate and yielded only one hit. Rube Bressler, his opponent, was found for five and he was lucky to hold the visitors scoreless. The Giants went out in part with a rush in the seventeenth inning. Young beat out a slow roller to Crane. Frisch popped to Crane, but Kelly it Young to third with a Bingle to right. Spencer grounded to Daubert and Young was caught between third and the plate. While Young was be? ing run down, Kelly reached third and Spencer took second, Doyle then scored both runners with a two bag? ger to center. Smith grounded to Groh for the third out. There was some more excitement in the Reds' half of the final inning After Bressler, who batted for Fisher, aad grounded out to Frisch, Groh hit one toward Doyle but failed to run toward fir.-t, claiming that Earl Smith had interfered with his swing. Um? pire Rigtcr refused to allow the pro? test and the champions squawked aloud with indignation. The first contest was an exciting pitching duel between Artie Nehf, the expensive southpaw, and Ray Fisher, who used to Bport the livery of the Yankees. Both received wonderful sup? port. The former allowed fifteen hits and the latter yielded eighteen. Fisher weakened badly in the final inning, when the visitors bunched three hits and clinched the game. The Giants wasted little time in get? ting started in the first game, shoving two runs across in the very first in? ning. Burns, the first batter, drew a base on balls and advanced to second on Bancroft's infield out. Young beat out a bunt toward first base and Frisch came through with a sharp sin? gle off Crane's glove, scoring Burns Kelly followed with another single tc center, scoring Young. Frisch took third on Spencer's grounder to Crane but Doyle .lied to Duncan for the third out. The Reds came right back in theii half and took the lead by scoring three runs. Groh walked and reached sec? ond on Daubert's single over second Roush shot a single to center, on which Groh scored. Both runners advanced on Duncan's sacrifice, Frisch to Doyle who covered first. Neale hoisted a flj to Spencer and Daubert completed th* circuit after the catch. Eddie Sicking formerly of the Giants, drove a singk to right and Roush beat Young's throw to the plate. Cran? ended tho agonj by grounding out to Bancroft. There was a little excitement in th? fourth inning when the McGraw met evened the count. Spencer, the firs batter, drove one to right 'eld, ant Neale tried to make a shoestr.ng grab Umpire Harrison ruled that Sp'iico: was out, as the ball had been caight Umpire Rigler, who was ofi:!ut;?g be hind the plate, promptly reversed th? decision, and the home players put ui an awful how], but to no avail. Whei peace was finally restored Doyle drovi a double to right center, puttinj Spencer on third. Smith scored Spencer with a single to center, but Doyle held second, as i looked as if Roush would catch th pellet. Nehf tried to sacrifice, bu forced Doyle at third on a bunt t Fisher. Burns then fouled out to Gro] and Allen caught Bancroft's foul fi near the stands. ?lampions got * cheap run ii the 'fifth and ?gain took the lead RuUah teached tirst !n nafety whei Bancroft fumbled his easy groundei Duncan shot a single to right, am Young attempted to cat down Roush who was sprinting for third.
