Toney Pitches Giants to Another Victory Over Cubs, 7 to I, While Dodgers Down Pirates, 2 to I Yankees L ose YANKS WEAK AT BAT, LOSE TO TIGERS 1-0 Cobb's Double' and a Wild Pitch Yield Winning Run in Fourth. t r Giants Make It Four Out of Five Over the Cubs By WILLIAM B.. HANNA. ffeial to Th Sum and New Yosk Ihuui.o. Detroit, Mich., Aug. 8. Leave it to the Yankee to lose the rlose games. When they need one run or two to be on term of equality or better they grope 'id stumble. They- were beaten 1 to 0 by the Tlsera this afternoon. Their fielding was of championship grade and there was quality all over their work In two departments, fielding and pitch ing, but they wore fatally deficient In balt'ng. Howard Ehmke's pitching was a masterpiece ; that of Hip Collins was of the highest grade of excellence. Khmke was rolling's superior to the extent that the Yanks rarely reached bases on him. Collins allowed more travellers to gei on, but pitched with skill and nerve when they wera on. Khmke held tho Yankees to one run ami five hits last Thursday, and to no runs and three hits to-day. Only thirty men faced him. Col. Ruppert, president of the Tankeo club, took note of the fact that Ehmke, the star of Jennings's mound corps, pitched against the Yan kees twice in four days. It was Leonard's turn to pltCh to-day, but In went Khmke. The Yanks muBt be beaten. When they were In St. Louis last time Shecker pitched two games against them. Whether this policy of putting the best 1 . urler against a team twice In a single scries will bo pursued when thes ciuos face Cleveland and Chicago next time will be watched with keen Interest by the Yankee people. A Ground Rale Game, It was another of those ground rule games, euch as the Yankees play to fre quently. Tho field fringe of spectators reached from both foul lines along the borders to the centre field corner and In front of both pavilions. This park is njpposed to have housed a crowd of 3!, Ono once, but It must have had clastic fences to do It, and to-day's concourse looked mora like CS.O000. Fans were perched, up on top of the walls and In hi, sorts ot nooks and crannies. T;ie Yanks faced Elunko again. He Is Detroit's best pitcher and pitched the first game of this series. That Is nn- other thing the Y'anks are used to facing the best winning pitcher twice In a series. They drew a blank In the ilrst Inning to-day. and in less time than it takes to tell it. Ruth's effort was a grounder to young. Tho Tigers did better. A single by Young opened the Inning. Cobb easily ini through to right on a hit and run play, following Jones's force of Young. Pratt was slow gettlns the ball to Peck, else there would have been a double play. Veach couldn't do anything, nor Heilman : both grounded weakly. On a single, a steal ailn Stanage's bad throw Pratt landed at third In the sec ond inning. One man was out. With three out he was still on third. Ehmke threw out Plpp; Pinelll threw out the noble Plzzola. Ten New Yorkers were vis-a-vis with Khmke in the first three Innings. He was mowing them down mercilessly. Lewis. Coillns and Ward were mowed on strikes. It's a habit with Collins and Ward Only eleven Junjaieer faced Collins in the, first three. The pitching was mas 1 terful to date. Cobb caught Ruth's high rocket in the (ourth after Peck had singled. The hit ting back of Peck was light as fleece and he was left at the halfway house. After a double by Cobb and sacrifice by Veach, Collins shot a clean strike past Heilman. "Ball." said Dinecn. Collins, disconcerted possibly by the poor decision, let loose a wild pitch, and Cobb can score from third on a wild pitch any day. A few more battery errors fol lowed. A passed ball and another wild pitch followed Heilman's single. A New York chance In the fifth was mined when Pinelli caught Pizzola at second on the hidden ball trick. Owens did not see the play and called on Dlnneen lor a decision. Dlnneen. who may or may no) hao seen It. promptly called Bodie out. If this was a guess on Dlnneen's part, It was a good one. Plxzola was asleep. He was a fearfully Indignant Italian when be woke up and found him self out. Owens, who also was asleep on the play, showed his vigilance and authority by chasing Lefty O'Doul off the bench. It was not a good alibi for the nodding umpire. Pixxola Caught Asleep. Jones could have girdled the bases In the sixth, although he walked, with no body out. Cobb sacrificed. Ward did a fast Job on him. Veach and Heilman drifted grounders to Pipp. Capital pitching by Collins, and not the first time either. But it had been all wasted. His associates hadn't hit Ehmke hard fnough to break glass. Their defense was mighty good, though. Ward, Plpp and Ward erased Strange and Plnelll in aMouble play of speed and precision In the seventh. Into the eighth went Owen and Col lins with his splendid pitching In tight places. Ehmke slashed a two bagger to centre to start and Young sacrificed.' While Ehmke was trying to score on a squeeso pray Coillns hit Jones with the hall and Ehmke had to go back. High flies set down Cobb and Veach and stranded two runners. As a pinch hitter In the ninth MeuWl was a chllllnc frost. He fanned on his weakness, a low curve. Peck was no bet ter. He stood still while a good third strike curved over. Young took care of Ruth'a grounder. The score: NEW YORK (A.) I DETROIT (A.) ab r h o a ibih 0 11 WiM.ltb. SOO 1 ISOlYottng-'b. 301 4 BO Peck.ss.. 401 2 1 0' Jone.3b. . 200 0 2 0 Ruth.rf..

It was hot enough at the Polo Grounds yesterday afternoon, even If ona did nothing more than alt still anal cuzile pop In between destructions ot lea cream conea. But for the wall known Cuba the park became op torrid aa an African Jungle. The Giants made things hot for their rivals from the start and trounced them for the fourth time In their series of five games. The score was 7 to 1. Tho victory was the eleventh earned by the New Yorks In thirteen games playod since their return here and was ac claimed lustily by a crowd of more than 30,000. The Giants enjoyed a complete recov ery from the lapse Into which they had fallen Uie day before and played winning ball In every department. They hit bard, ran tha bases with verve and extreme Intelligence, and, best of all, they got line pitching, Fred Toney was on tho mound for New Y'ork and had the Cub in hand until the last Inning. Then, with a lead of seven runs and the persplr.i tlon rolling down his brow In rivulet, the bis follow relaxed and permitted tha Cubs to save themselves from complete eclipse. They got three hits In that In ning. They got two In tho eighth. Pre vious to that round the Cubs rollected only four scattered safeties. In contrast to U8 fine work of Toney whs the pitching uf Jim Vaughn, the lefthander. Lust Thursday Vaughn en gaged In a grout duel witli Barnes and held the Giants to three hits. Y'ester day Vaughn was no mystery from the first crack out of the box. The Giants got to him for a couple of hits in the first round and kept adding swats in all Innings except the second and fifth. In all, they found the big southpaw for sovon hits In seven Innings. In the eighth Carter took Vaughn's place and was slammed with vigor and effect, tha New Yorks getting three hits for four runs in their last turn at the bat. Young Hits Home Itnn. The most prodigious blow of the game was n home run Into the lower right field stand by Ross Young of the Giants. Young turned the trick to open the fourth Inning. He took a wicked cut at the ball and Just wafted it out of the Held. Vaughn rallied after that and kept the Giants at bay until the seventh. Then they hit him again and persuaded Fred Mitchell to send Twombly to bat for him In the eighth. Young was the stellar hitter for the Olants. getting two singles and a homer. In addition to a pass, for a perfect aver- sge. Frlsch got a couple of telling hits. Doyle, helped with a single. Even To ney got a single. I'askert was the most effect. ve bats man among the Cubs, with a double and a single. Terry got a triple and a sin gle, but hla three bagger came with two down and Vas wasted. Paskert's dou ble started the rally that gave tho Cubs their lone counter. The Giants again played flashy ball and made the niot of every opportunity which presented Itself. They worked a protty double steal in the seventh, ran ; out every chance and kept at the task of I making runs even when it was felt that, the Cubs were done for. They never relaxed In the field and at bat even for i a moment. And It was an afternoon In' which a little relaxation might have' been condoned. Doyle's Fine Play. A scintillating stop and throw to the plate by Doyle saved n run in the first and featured the throttling of what looked like a dangerous assault. The I Cubs got men to second and third with one out but could not ecore. Flack, to begin with, walked. H-riog forced Flack, and It looked as if Doyle's throw to first beat "Cantaloupe Charley." but j Emslle thought otherwise and erred. Terry singled to right and when Young! let the ball get away from him Henog went to third nnd Terry to second. It was then that Doyle came to the fore. Barber hit a nasty bounder tr, hi:n nnd Larry made a fine ston. He shot the ball to Snyder like a rltle shot and got Herzog at the plate. Paskert hit a terrific bounder to Toney, who stopped It and retired his man. The Giants got their run in the open Ing inning on two hits, which came after Burns and Bancroft hart eon nut Y'oung started the little rally with a ; reminded one of the old daya of hefty single to snort centre, and went to sec- "" mountainous pitchers. ond like a streak when he saw Paskert muff the ball. Frlsch smashed a single to left and scored Young. Deal leaped up to stop Frlsch's drive and managed to touch It with his glove. Terry I Stranded. It looked as If the Cubs would score in tho sixth, but Terry had the Ill-luck to get a triple with two gone. Barker then lilt a long fly to left centre ami King caught it after legging altogether too fast for a torrid afternoon. Terry would have made his hit a home run If he had been aale to get up a llttl more steam. New Y'ork got In another run In the seventh session when Herzog helped make a double steal successful. Frlsch started it all with a single to centre and Kflly sacrificed him along. King fouled to Klliofcr. Doyle beat out a hit to Hcrzcf. A double steal was started and Hersog came In to take a short throw. DODGERS' VICTORY DUE TO WILD PITCH Umpire Rigler's Decision Questioned by Pirates. By CHARLRS F. M A TH l.HOJI. A wild pitch by Charles Elmer Pon der, Pirate richer, a wild dash from third to the home plate by Zachary Wheat nnd s wild outburat by Pirate playera against the decision of I.'mplra Charlea Rigier declaring that Wheat scored the winning run, were some of the salient featurea that were crowded yesterday afternoon Into what waa prob ably the wildest ninth Inning over Been at Ebbeta Field. Wheat's run gave the game to the Dodgers by 2 to 1, and brought to a close a turbulent contest. The wild pitch by Ponder wae not the only one of the game. In tho eighth Inning, after Field Umpire Moran had declared Mitchell out at third, the spec tators In the right field grand stand made about forty wild throws of pop bottles nt tho official. The throwing was so Inaccurate Uiut many of tho Brook lyn nnd Pittsburg players who were arguing with Moran narrowly escaped being "beaned" by the missiles. The Pirates, who had won twice In succession from the Dodgers, hal scored a run In the third on an error by Johns ton, a single by flouthworth and a sac rifice fly by Whltted. Miuxjjard was pitching gilt edgo ball and Tinder was unhlftable with men on baea, which seldom came to pasa so far us tho Dodgers were concerned. Then In the eighth frame Ponder seemed to lose his effectiveness and the Dodgers tied the score. Kllduff, first up. was thrown out at first, hut Krueger to third on Robertson's single to centre ,t for a ijalie Bll(j ,of,i second when WhltteU threw wild to Grimm. Mitchell, batting for Marquard. singled to left and scored McCnbe, who ran for Krue ger. Olson Blngled to left, but Mitchell wus held at second. Johnston sent a long fly to Blgbee nnd Mitchell reached third after the catch. Olson then made a dash to steal sec ond before the ball was pitched, and Pender, mnklng a bluff to throw to sec ond, lured Mitchell Into making a rush forTiome. Ponder snapped the ball to third and Mitchell was called out. Uncle Robbie and the entire Dodger force rushed at Umpire. Moran. who re treated to his position nr first base. The Dodgers Insisted that Whltteil had not touched Mitchell, but the umpire held his ground till a shower of pop bottles drove him to :i strategic point near second, where he remained till the close of the game. Cadorc pitched the ninth Inning against the Pirates and let them down in order, whereupon the Dodgers went to the bat ter a desperate effort to win. Tommy Griffith hit viciously at the leather, but was thrown out at first by the pitcher. Wheat raised the hopes of the fans by placing an artistic bunt be tween the plate and third and beating Whlttsd'a throw to first. Neis. who ran for Myers In the seventh and suc ceeded HI In centre, walked. Koney pounded s long one to centre that Carey caught, hut after the catch Wheat advanced to third and Nels to second. With two out and a man on third, the entire responsibilities of the situation were loaded on the broad shoulders of Pete Kllduff. Ponder seemed to be weakening, but he braced up and got two strikes on Kllduff, with only two called balls. Pete rubbed sand on his bat, pulled up his trousers, pulled down hla cap and glared savagely at the per spiring Ponder, after which Kllduff hit five fouls in succession. Ponder then gathered himself for a supreme effort and shot the ball about waist high, at which Kil luff swung with ail Ills force anil missed. The ball was an Inslioot and passed close to Kllduff's breast. It then struck Haeffner's mitt and shot hack to tho grandstand wall. Wheat w.nne tearing up the third base line ami tramped on the home plate. Rlgler declared that the ball was a wild pitch and that the run counted. It was now the turn of the perturbed Pirates to rush at Rigier and assert In vivid language that the pitched ball hit Kil duffs bat and also the batsmin's hand, and w as either a foul or a hit by pitcher and that Wheat's run could not score Rlsler disagreed with the Pirate view of the ts.Se. and the Dodgers thereupon trooped Joyously off the field, leaving the Pittebuigs to argue it out among themselves. Kllduff after swinging nt the ball Ins' Ills balance and fell on his hands. After arising he held up his right hand as If to show that it had been hurt nH ,.,. Toney and Snyder, both behemoths Pittsburg players pointed to this .vi and the biggest battery In the league, dnce that the ball had hit the batter on toe hand. On the previous appearance of Rlgler and Moran at Ebbeta Field their deci sions so angered the fans the umpires had to be escorted to their dressing room by police.

The Yankees, we believe, are suffering a reaction from the high ten- bIoti to which they have been subject theae many weeks. The club has been losing altogether too often far more often than It should but there is no call to haul up the white flag and give up the fight. The pennant race still has a great way to go. YVe are rather puzzled by the statement made by critics who are with tho club in the West that It will have to take all ten games from Cleveland to make sure of the pennant. This feat la practlcoJly Impossible, and It Is not at all iui essential In the Yankee pennant discussion. Tho Yankoes have a powerful punch, and when that gets going again the team will regain a lot of lost ground. The mam trouble with the club Is, as wo have said so many times before, its lack of versatility and subtlety. It depends altogether on brute force. However, as It lacks speed it is forced to relv mainly on Its power. The men come un with n free swing and the Intention to emulate Ruth and hit a home run. There is altogether too much j m" Of that.

The Chicago Infield howled with rage when ESnMue called Young safe in the sixth, when the Giant got his third hit. Killefer ran out to second and Herzog grasped his hand and !hook it and told him how glad he was to see him. Young was out stealing, so nothing came of it. Paskert opened the seventh with a single to left but Robertson forced him end then Deal hit Into a double play. Emslle appeared to have booted one Vhen he called Hersog safe at first after he hnd forced Flack. Doylo started to protest with vigor, but got the sign from the bench to desist. Barber batted for Merkle before Merklc even got Into the game. Mit chell announced Merkle as his first base choice and then sent Barber to bat In the first. It was hot enough to fry an omelet out In tho centre field bleachers and few fans gavn the broiler a play. The crowd did not forget Killefer's throwing his bat In front of Smith on Saturday and booed tha catcher all through the game. Paskert Roba Doyle. Paskert robbed Doyle of a hit In the second with a brilliant running catch and again called Time a liar. Why the Giants Have Keen Winning dames. As for the Giants, they have hit the trail at last. The club had class when It opened the season, but the pitching staff rollapsd us a whole and other parts of the defence went with It. The attacft failed too whlh' men like Sicking and Lear were floundering around In the shoes of Frlsch. Be cause he had Inept helt. at third Fletcher was made to look worse than he was. Doyle felt tho general lack of confidence In the Infield and he sagged too. Then came Frlsch apd the trade which made Bancroft a Olant. The hole at third wns plugged up, and the shortstop position was filled with a star. Doyle Immediately perked tip. He regained his confidence. The pitching riegan to feel the upward trend and responded. Just as the staff had gone bad at one time, so It came back In a bunch. The result Is success. The Giants are getting fine pitching, fine catching, fine fielding and hard hitting. And they are as peppery an outfit as you ever saw. If they do not win the fiennnnt they will come close to It. They are versatile. When they nnd that they cannot hit a pitcher on the nose they switch to the short game They work about everything In the boseball curriculum and they make their own opportunities. They may strike a snag, hut, we do not think so. TDc club Is as good as Its recent record shows It to be. ton 1 u n s o 1 0 isse li I (ft- Tohln. Three base hit Tobln. Ktolen base sacrifices Rice.

Williams and Garland bring the British doubles title another honor never before gnlncd by Yankees.

Why this caution, with the Cubs three runs to the bad In the eighth, only Mitchell himself knew, Carter Is Slammed. Carter fared the Giants In the eighth and was Jolted out of his complacency Immediately. Snyder greeted him with a double to left. Toney trying to sac rifice was a sight for sore eyes.

The ling have at last started to leave th bass grounds, and from now 011 the baas fishing ahould show a marked Improvement. Tha flahing pilots have all said that tine were plenty of bass on th around, but that the llfta Interfered with th catching of them. Now that th ltng have taken to the deeper water, the base fishermen will no doubt 00 19 Into their own. Down at th Klondike ground some good catches of th large humpback baas hav been made, and good catches hav been brought In from th Eng land bank, off Etbaron. To th east th baa liav not been any too plentiful, but here, too, an Improvement I noticed by the fishing boat owner. Whn the bass ara on the Long Beach grounds there I no better place for them, and these ground are easy of accaas for all of th fishing boats and do not entail a long run. Thar arc hi bass on the Cholera ground and on the Angler nanus, ana one Doai trom rreeport made oult a haul of baas last Tuesday on th Middle ground, which lit between the Cholera and Angler bank, allghtly to the west aouthwest. A matter of fact, the Cholera banks, the Middle ground and the Anxier oanks really are on gret submarine rock formation, and the sandy belt that dlvld them are probably due only to th fact that a continual process of landing up and uncovering Is going on In this part of the sea. Quite a lot of seabass and soma large sea porgles were caught hist season on a ground which Ilea ln a direct line between th Anglr banks and the Long Beach whistling buoy No. 4. Thr has ben no report from this ground this season, howover. known, and good catches have been brougM Into Hheepshead Bay and Canarsle fer tin It ten da)-. There are aom larg black fish among them, and almoat Invariably th first prlu aboard th boats Is won by tin tkr of a blockflah th prlte. of remv. being for th heaviest edible flih. Blackflih love th little fiddler crabs and will tat them generally In preference to any oth'r bait. Th china back fiddler, whkO m and burrows In th whit sand bch.

Flschbeln of Jamaica wrltea e follow' "Want fishing last Sunday In til ! Onaway from Fitzgerald's dock at Ores' Ktlla and caught a nice mesa of Mabaii r! lafayette. I alio managed to hook and land a weakfiah weighting 4i pounda." Weakfiah are as scarce ai ben's tth 'n thla locality and It la a rare thing to pull Jul a 4K pounder. For some unknown reaion t weakfiah hav not struck In In their usual quantities and Stat,, Island grounds naw been euffcring tn the ear.ie way a Jamaica Bay. Edaar Brotlhead had a bit of luck cn W'edneaday. Hs fished at Valenilna'a Point and the ahetl heap In Jamlca Bay and man aged to boat nine weakfiah, all ovir i pounds. In addition he caught 23 good lUel apota. Th flab bit best at high wattr 1K and again near low water slack. At 1' tlne'a Point he got two of th fish and It tn shell heap seven.
