Giants Smother Dodgers, 8-0?White Sox Trim Indians?Yankees Lose to Senators
Barnes Baffles League Leaders;
Grimes Batted Out in Seventh
Smashing Attack by Manhattanites Clinches Open
? ing Game of Important SeVies in the First j
Inning; Brooklyn Batters Get Only Four Hits1
By W. O. McGeehan
The Giants won the first skirmish in the Battle of the Boroughs from !
T?cele Wilbert Robinson's Dodgers at Ebbets Field yesterday afternoon
by a score of 8 to 0. The Manhattanites performed as if inspired, and
outplayed their rivals in all departments of the game. The victory
reduced Brooklyn's lead in the pennant chase to four full games and it is
still possible for the McGraw men to finish the season in first place.
A crowd of about 26,000 rabid fans$>
turned out in the hope of seeing the
Dodgers clinch the bunting, but they
went home a sad, disappointed lot and
were wondering whether t'neir favorites
?would really land the flag.
The gates to Squire Ebbess' ball ry&rk
were closed about three-quarters of. an
hour before game time, and after that
none but holders of reserved seat tick?
ets were admitted. The scenes outside
?the park resembled a riot, and thou
eands were turned away.
If the seating accommodations of
the field had permitted, more than 60,
000 would have witnessed the encoun?
ter. The stands as well as the tem?
porary bleachers in the outfield were
filled to capacity an hour before game
time, but none of the spectators were !
permitted to watch the game from the
playing field.
Mamaux Also Pounded
Burleigh Grimes, the Dodgers' pitch- j
ing ace, started on the mound, but he ?
was assaulted unmercifully antl was
finally forced to retire in the seventh j
inning. Mamaux relieved the battered \
Grimes, and he also was plastered with j
considerable vehemence. Mamaux was
taken out in favor of a pinch hitter and |
Mohart pitched the final inning. This
array of twirling talent was found for
exactly fifteen hits.
The work of Grimes was in direct
contrast to that of Jesse Barnes who
pitched for the Giants. The latter's
exhibition was a classic. He had the
home players virtually eating out of the
palm of his hand, and he let them down
with just four hits. Barnes kept these
so well distributed that not once could
the Dodgers break through. He was
aided by brilliant support, particularly
on the part ?of Frisch and Bancroft.
The Giants wasted little time in fret?
ting started, and they bombarded
Grimes for three runs in the very first
inning. These proved quite sufficient
to decide the outcome, and the Brook?
lyn fans shouted in vain during the re
mander of the afternoon for the Dodg?
ers to overcome this lead.
After Burns had grounded out to Kil?
duff to start the game Beauty Ban?
croft poked one down to the right field
corner of the lot for a three-bagger
and scored a moment later when Grimes
uncorked a wild pitch. Young drew a
base on ball and Frisch followed with
a triple to deep right center, sending
Young across.
Frisch Nailed at Plate
Kilduff threw the ball past Johnston
at third, but the pellet hit the stands
and bounced into Miller's waiting
hands at the plate and the Fordham
Flash was nailed in attempting tw score
on the overthrow. Long George Kelly,
own nephew of Bill Lange, connected
with one of Grimes's moist shoots and
bounced it into the left field bleachers
for a home run. Kir.g finally brought
the riotous inning to a close by lifting
a fly to Griffith.
The Dodgers became a trifle menac?
ing in the fourth, but Barnes tightened
up nicely and turned theb back. Grif?
fith opened with a single to center.
Wheat rolled one down to Kelly, who
threw to Bancroft to force out Griffith
at second, but both runners were safe
when Beauty dropped the ball. Griffith
reached third on the double killing,
but was stranded when Konetchy
(rounded out to Doyle.
The Giants went after Grimes again
In the fifth and increased their lead by
scoring another run. Burns, the first
batter, received a base on balls and
then took second on Bancroft's ground?
er to Johnston. Pep Young poked a
?ingle to left and Burns pulled up at
third. Frisch went out-on a grounder tc
Kilduff, but Burns crossed the plate or
the play. Kelly then Hied to Myers foi
the third out.
Some tine support saved Barnes frorr
being scored on in the home players
half of the fifth. Kilduff bounced oni
over second for what looked like a sur<
hit, but Bancroft speared the pelle
and nailed the runner at first. Mille:
then slammed one off Barnes's glove
but Frisch pounced on the Dn.ll ant
threw to Kelly in time to make thi
putout.
Doyle Hits Two-Bagger
Grimes was handed some more haisl
treatment in the sixth. With cue out
Doyle smashed a two-bagger to left
Smith slammed one to center ficli
which bounced into the crowd for i
ground rule triple. After Smith hai
plodded all the way around to thin
base, Miller claimed that Earl hai
stepped out of the batter's box whei
he hit the ball. Umpire Rigler ?? llowei
the protest and Smith was called out
while Doyle was chased back to second
The visitors put up an awful squawl
at the decision, but to no avail. Whei
peace was restored, Barnes lined t
Olson for the third out.
The Giants resumed their assault o
Grimes in the seventh and the big spit
ball artist was given the rest of th
afternoon to himself. Burns led of
with a single to center, and on th
hit and run Bancroft came throug
with a single to left, on which Burn
?printed to third. Wheat made a vai
throw to Johnston in an attemut t
head off Burns and Bancroft sneake
down to second. At this point Mamau
was hurled into the breach and Youn
greeted him with a sharp single t
right which scored Bums and Bancrof
Ivy Olson pulled a neat muff o
Friseh's easy pop fly, but he recovere
it in time to force Young at secom
The Fordham Flash stole second a
Long George Kelly struck out, but h
got no further, as King also fanned.
Again the Dodgers threatened t
acore in their half of the seventh, bt,
a brilliant play by Frisch stopped thei
in their tracks. Wheat opened the ir
ning with a single to center and the
took second when King fumble<% th
ball. Myers drew the only base o
balls that Barnes issued. Konetch
iilammad one down toward Frisch, wh
made a great stop and stepped on thir
forcing Wheat. The Fordham Flag
then shot the ball over to Kelly an
doubled up Konetchy at first.
Mamaux Taken Oat in Eighth
Mamauxt was taken out in the eighl
to allow Clarence Mitchell to bat f<
him, and Mohart took up the hopelei
pitching burden in the ninth. Tl
youngster started well enough by fai
ning Bancroft, but Young connected f
bin third hit, a single to center. Fri?<
rolled one down to Kilduff, who let tr
ball roll through his legs, and Your
went all the way to third. The tw
speed artists then tried a double ste?
and both scored when Miller heave

Giants Must Sweep
Series to Figure
THE Cleveland American's lead
was shortened to a half game
yesterday when Chicago won the de?
ciding contest of the three-game
series with the Indians. The Giants
sliced a game off the lead of the
Brooklyn Nationals, and with the
Dodgers four games ahead New
York's only hope is in taking all
four remaining games to be piayed
with the league leaders.
In the American race Cleveland
can drop two of its eight games to
be played, and the best Chicago
could obtain by winning five straight
would be a tie. The Yankees, three
games behind the Indians, and with
only four to play, are still a mathe?
matical possibility for first place,
but would have a difficult task even
in capturing second.

Tris Speaker, of the Indians
J1ESP?TE many handicaps, including the tragic death of Ray
Chapman, Tris Speaker, manager of the Cleveland Indians,
has kept his team well up in the race throughout the campaign
and his charges are now a half a game in the lead in one of
the keenest pennant struggles baseball has ever known.
Not only is Speaker making good as a team leader, but
he is also keeping up his former standard of playing.- He is
still one of the game's greatest outfielders and his batting
average for the season is second only to that of Sisler. His
sensational all-around performances have been largely respon?
sible for his team's wonderful showing, and he is, at the present
time, the only player-manager in the big leagues.

Coveleskie Bows to Williams
And Cleveland Lead Is Reduced
Jackson's Homer Factor I
in Chicago Team's Vic?
tory in Final by 5 to 1
CLEVELAND, Sept. 25.?The Chicago |
White Sox defeated the Indians to-day :
by a score of 5 to 1, taking two out I
of three games" in the present series I
and cutting Cleveland's lead to one
half same in the race for the American |
League championship. A record-break- j
ing crowd, estimated at 33,000, wit?
nessed the game, overflowing the play- i
ing field except in a small spot in
center field.
Claude Williams, the visitors' left- ;
handed twirler, pitched masterly ball, !
holding the Indians to five hits. At |
bat he contributed a double and a |
single. He had the locals at his mercy
except in the third inning, when Cleve?
land scored its only run on Sewell's
double and two long flies. Cleveland
made three of its five hits in this
inning, Evans and Wambsganss getting
singles.
Cleveland batters popped the ball in
the air throughout the game, Chicago
players getting only four assists, the
first one in the sixth inning, against
twenty-one for Cleveland. In the field
Chicago played perfect ball, while the
locals had two errors.
The White Sox made nine hits, in?
cluding a home run and two doubles :
by Joe Jackson. Risherg got two sin- '
gles and E. Collins and Felsch one each.
The visitors scored two runs, enough
to win, in the opening inning, after two
were out. Ed Collins singled, took third
on Jackson's double and scored on
' Gnrdner's low throw to Felsch. Jack?
son counted when Johnston let Sewell's
throw of J. .Collins's grounder get
away.
Two more Sox scored in the fourth.
j Felsch tallied on his single, J. Collins's
sacrifice, Risberg's single and Schalk's
j sacrifice. Risberg scored on Williams's
double to left. Chicago's fifth run came
in the fifth inning, when Jackson drove
I lhe first ball Coveleskie pitched over
i the right field wall for a home run.
While Jackson made two doubles and
I a home run he made many enemies by
S his actions in the fifth inning while
i running out his circuit hit. As the
I crowd cheered his effort he made an
I insulting gesture as he rounded third
! base and repeated it as he crossed the
plate. He was booed and jeered the
remainder of the game, thousands of
former soldiers, who are here to attend
the American Legion convention, snout?
ing "ship yard" at him.
The score:

Miller Huggins, our mideet manu??
is evidently resigned to fate and an?
lous to have that fate overtake hi?
as speedily as possible. He carried
a woe - begone, forlorn countenanc.
thither and yon with about as much
pep as-well, as the Yankee? the?.,
selves displayed. The metamorphogii
of our Yankees, sine they humped
head-on into a ton of TNT in Chics?
last week, cannot possiblv be pictured
in English language of the parlor typt
The Yankees are coing nowhere now
and they do not seem to care a han?
who knows it. They cannot improre
third place world's series recompense
such as they drew down after a letal'
fight last year; neither can they lose
that crumb of consolation. And so life
to them is just one ball game after
another, the passing of which meant
a step nearer the oblivion of the o?
season.
Fighting Spirit Absent
Ye3terday'sbattle under the shadow,
of Coogan's Bluffs had Rome semblan?
of a ball game for a short time only.
When, in the third inning, with two
out, Courtney, the Washington pitcher,
cracked the ball into the lower right
field stand, much of the starch owed
right out of our home troop. It is
true that the Yankees tied the count
in their fourth, but they never got
back into the battle with charasterie
spirit at all.
It was reported from the West that
Bob Shawkey's arm had ?jone back in
the big crisis. The gossips had it that
Bob the Gob strained the old soup bone
as a result of overwork in the bull
pen. Shawkey's arm seemed to have
lost little of its cunning yesterday un?
til the team pulled up behind him.
Bob started off by fanning about half
of the Senators that opposed him in the
early rounds. He could scarcely be
blamed for emulating the general spirit
of his cast before the end. An inklin?
of the spirit of the Yankees was re?
flected i? the fact that they hit into
four double plays, one or more of them
very sluggish, not to say nonsensical.
Vick, who supplanted Meusel, hit into
the first double play in the second
inning-, following a clean single bjr
Peckinpaugh.
Gift Proves a Jinx
Washington scored first in the third
inning. O'Rourke was presented with
a purse of $200 in gold by Elizabeth,
N. J., admirers. As per custom, he
promptly struck out. Gharrity fol?
lowed suit for Shawkey's fourth vic?
tim. Courtney, however, slapped on?
into the lower ri^ht field styind?a blow
that appeared to demoralize our boyi
beyond repair.
The hr-avy artiWery of the Yankw
made a feint in the fourth that tied
the score at the expense of heavy
casualties. Pipn opcncrl with a single
to right. Babe" Ruth rattled s wicked
single off the right field wall that
sent Pipp to third. Pratt hit straight
at O'Rourke and into the second
double play Pipp scoring during the
excution of the double killing. Duffy
Lewis wormed a base out of Courtney,
but Peck tapped straight at Judge.
Truck Hannah qualified for the
brown derby in the fifth. After Rice
had robbed Vick of a Texas leaguer
by a fine running catch, his Truckleti
singled to center. Shawkey hit M
Harris. Hannah pulled up so that the
second baseman could not tag him and
forced Harris to make the play at
first base. But then Truck Hannah
loafed in goirt"; on to second and w?
tagged out on Judge's quick relay, al
he lumbered toward the midway.
Senators Break Tie
The Senators broke the tic in th?
sixth. Shawkey struck out Judge, but
handed a pass to Harris. Rice hit to
Ward. Aaron shot the ball to Pratt in
plenty of time to start n double pl*7>
but Derrill muffed ignobly and nobody
was retired. Roth walked, filling the
bases. Ellerbe popped to Peckinpaugh,
but Shawkey lost Shanks's also, and
this pass forced home Harris with the
run. Shawkey threw out O'Rourke.
Ward doubled to start the sixth and
Pipp sacrificed. Ruth was purposely
passed, but Pratt for the second tmw(
hit into a double play.
The Senators tied it un in the eigbt?.
Harris walked and scored ahead of Bw
when Vick let Sammy's single roll M*
t.ween his legs and on to the fen*
Roth fouled to Pipp and Ellerbe im,
to Vick. Shanks then walked, but V
was forced by O'Rourke.
