Toney Pitches Giants to Another Victory Over Cubs, 7 to I, While Dodgers Down Pirates, 2 to I Yankees L

t r
Giants Make It Four Out
of Five Over the Cubs
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
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
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:

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
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.
Umpire Rigler's Decision
Questioned by Pirates.
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
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
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 score :

WO major questions atand out In baseball diacusalona of the hour
Is the matter with the Yankeea?" and "What has struck the Giants.
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

4 ubs Make Protest.
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.

America Welcomes Back Its Tennis Victors.
To-day the greatest lawn tennis team which ever represented the United
States In the Davis cup competition returned to this country from Eng
land. Johnston, Tlldcn, Williams und Garland already have earned honors
a plenty, but they Still face the biggest test ot the series, the challenge match
with Australasia.
The showing of Johnston and Tilden In England makes us feel that they
are invincible. Tilden orlngs with liim the championship of England an
honor never before won by an American. Williams and Garland bring the
British doubles title another honor never before gnlncd by Yankees. John
ston brings the championship of London, and distinction which finds no artic
ulation in terms of mere Mtles. America welcomes back its victorious Argosy
with ciien arms.

Seabass Fishing Outside Keeps Improving.

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
