There were n full dozen game In the.

Tho Yankees collected th4 greatest

However, the Vnnkees old not figure
extensively In the high scoto Raines last
reason. Their pitchers usutlly held the
other fellows within iesiectiiblo bounds,,
while Dono nti's cohorts seldom ran their
run output Into double fUurrs. There I
were three gamut In which the Yankee
liurlers permitted ten runs or more and
three others In which tho local Americans
rang up ten rnn or more. '
The worst setback suffered by the j
Yankees last reason came on July -3,1
When tho While Sox beat them 13 to S. j
Though the Yankees held their ov.'n with

The pitchers of the. world's champion i
Ited Sox proved their worth. Inasmuch
a they llsured In the losing end of only
two of the forty-four Ameilcan League

cored. The lied Sox, however, won live
(amen In which they scored enough runs
to get them In the high score division.
The thumpers on Cleveland and De

The weakness of tho (Hants last sea-I

September txiurts. was generally be
lieved to be the pitching ttan. yet It is
to the credit of Mctlruw'a twlrlers that
in only one game during the entire sea
son did their opponents make as many as
tan runs. That was during that horrible
stretch In August, when IMttehurg won
a game by 10 to 1. The (Hauls' run In
that game was the icsult of two 1'ltt"
hurg errots, and came after New York
had failed to tcore for fome forty con

There nre times when famous hat

had. Hut In the great majority of
cases pla.crs take their swing nnd try
to meet the ball on a line, "trusting to
luck," as you any, that It will go safe.
1 will admit, however, there Is some
f deuce In hitting. For Instance, on the
hit nnd run ermte players arc skilful In'
driving the ball through po'ltloti va

Dear Tom The Dcgnon drays of Long

recently played a serin. The Karmers won
the flrst and the second uas played at

1 In favor of the Degnons lb Karmers go
to hat In the last half ot the eighth and
put over three runs and have only two out
when rain stops tho completion of the In
ning. The Degnon drays fall to publlih
score of their defeat, but their victory ap
peared In Monday's murnlng tUN with
score 10 to 1, omitting all mention nf runs
cored by the Farmers In the eighth. V
eontsnd that Inasmuch as the Degnons had
their halt ot the eighth the Karmers
are entitled to credit tor all runs scored In
the latt half, and that icore should appear
10 to 4, Irrespective of the fact that Inning
aas Incomplete. We ulsa contend that all
hits and runs, Ac, scored in this half may
be Included In our batting averages.
Tou are correct. Farmers were en.
titled to the four runs, nnd all hits, runs,
Ac, belong In the averages.

Dear Tom There were two strikes
on a batter when the pitcher threw a drop
ball which struck the plate. The batter,
who thought tho hill wo good, struck
about half way, then, ns tho ball had

It a ball, but a the catcher dirt not hear

Let mo also add that pitcher wa holding

Secretary Heydler of National League
says he could see no reason why batter

Very often It happens that teams are
unable to play their full 154 games. If

quit a handicap for a, pennant con

American Gains Itcspect by De
claring Darcy Was Win
ner in Uout.
The unpleasant Impression created In
Australia by certain American boxers
and their managers, who showed a lack
of sportsmanship, has been largely ie-
moved recently by the admlrnblo attl i
tude ot Jimmy dabby and Ucorgo Chip.
These two thoroughgoing Americans
showed the Australians that the paltri
ness of Oiousn and others I the excep
tion rather than the rule, and that Amer
ican boxers as a clasa are equal In
sportsmanship to tho uthletes of any
country n the globe. It will be re-1
memhered that Clabby magnnnlmnusly I
refused to accept a lame cash forfeit
from Darcy berauso the Intte.r was over-
Now cornea Oeorgo Chip, after his de-1
fcut at the hands of thu Australian i
champion, nnd In n manly, straightfor
ward way declares he was, vanquished
by a better man.
When Chip wns questioned by nn Aus
tralian writer tho Newcastle miner said:
Darcy (he Belter .Man.
"There's nothing to It. lie !e.n mo
fairly and squarely. I did my beet, but
Darcy did better. That's Just the sum-1
mlng up of the whole thing In thn old
nutshell. Excuses? No ! I haven't any. ,
There Is none to be made; but some
thing might be said In extenuation. If
only to take tho rough edge oft my
licking, I want to tell you In n few
words that 1 am strongly Impressed with '
tho lMMlef that Darcy Is the greatest i
middleweight fighter In tho world, (lib-
bong would have no chance w 1th him.
Dillon might, but I am not strong on
that tip."
Manager Jimmy Dime kept punctuat
ing Chip's remarks by nodding assent :
and when George got through Jimmy
supplied the finishing touch by saying:
"Those are exactly my sentlmer.ts."
."Darcy la wonderfully strong," chipped
In Jimmy Dime. "Dillon la the only
one on our side of the Pacific who would
hnvo a possible chance with htm at
catch weights; but nt 140 pounds, i
Australia's and England a middle
weight limit, Darcy would sure get
away with the bacon."
Jimmy Dims took a hand again. "I
hate to make excuses," he remarked.
"and I don't think I am making one i
now. I desire to put In something In
extenuation, as Chip said at the outset.
Oeorgo got awful fat coming over In the i
poat. tin nuiKett nigger than ever.
Shunting nearly a stone of excess stuff
cost him a heap of energy. He surely
lost a little pep.
In a note to the writer Snowy naker
declares that the opponents of the Aus
tralian champion nppear to be nfTllcicd 1
with "Darcyltls," and adds :
"Is Lea Darcy. Australia's great mid
dleweight champion, a fighting wonder)
or Is It the pugnacious utmophere that
the whole Australian public breathe
around him that puts thu pcaro into his 1
opponents? 1
".Some clone observers of boxing who '
navo witnessed Darcy destroy the repu
tations of some of America's best mid
dleweight and lower the Hying colors
of all Australia's talent that opposed
him have figured that a Darcy versus

dabby, Crouse nnd cithers have landed

"The public In Australia nre begin

"Every boxer that meets Darcy seems
to have one Idea uppermost In his mind
and that Is to grab Darry'n arms nnd
hold on. It seems natural with them
thoughts paramount that the fighting in
stinct Is Kwaniped, nt least during the
lime they nro In the ring ngaint Darcy.
"Darcy is a boxing hero In Australia
and deservedly so, hut If thero Is on
thing that the Aimtnillan public would
like to see It Is some fighter from
America, Australia or elsewhere with

Les Darcy says Chip In a hard puncher
and a ahrong fellow, but he telegraphs a
good deal of his Intended operations.
Les thinks the American Is an fair a
fighter as ho has ever met. Not once
did Darcy have any misgivings legard

Iteeolt Blows.
Iloxers now have a now dunger to
confront In the ahatte of a recoil blow.
A ringside spectator of recent bouw In
Sydney declares that he plainly saw two
of these blows, and describes them sh
follows :
"I have never heard the possibility of
a ring lighter's blow acting the reverse
way that Is, upon himself even sug
gested. I certainly never read of such
a thing taking place. ,
"On two recent tjuccrsalve Saturday
nights I saw blowB recoil yes. recoil Is
thn only word upon their deliverers,
whllo the men they were Intended tu
damage remained absolutely unaffected
an far nn appearnncca went.
"In the fourth round of his battle wllh
Babe IMcato Jimmy Hill smashed n right
to the American's chest, and whllo Plcnto
stood absolutely uiiruflleil, apparently,
Hill flopped to the boards.
"A similar Incident happened In the
O'Donnell-McMnhon battle loot Saturday
night week. During a high pressure
moment of the sixth round McMahon
hooked a right to the side of O'Donnell's
neck, and Immediately flopped to his
Imnu-B much surprised looking pug.
How did It happen 7' he seemed to be
asking himself.
"Ah long aa the same portion of the
anatomy of every boxer strikes the
boards tlrst there might ho no danger In
the recoil, excepting that It might i.liakn
the victim up badly at a time when he
waa unable to stand overmuch of that
nort of thing. Huf what If I1I.1 head
struck tho ground tlrst?
"Those fantastic attacks EUcn a,

Consistent n Inner nt
ford In the nlxth round on a foul, gives
this Interesting description of the battle.
In which n number of unusual incidents 1
occurred : 1
"Lang's Instructions were to back nwny
from I.angford und endeavor to tiro him
In order to give himself a chance, Lang
ford went right uftcr bis opponent and
In tho tlrst round knocked lilll down
for the full count Eugene Corrl was
referee and Jumped Into the ring at thlt
Huge and stayed there separating the
two men.
"Hill put up n game, determined bat-1
tie, but an old cut over the eve was ,
reopened by tho flrn fmneh, nnd it sadly
disturbed him, tho blood running over '
his face nnd making him look tn a much
worse condition than ho tenlly wa.
Hill s was the rnurngn of the martyr,
and his i-ercne, oxllke disposition seemed
to thrive under ono of the most tearful
drubbing that had ever been given to
a white man by a black,
The "AuctUnerr.'
"In the fifth round Lnngford delivered
whut ho wns pleased to call 'the auc
tioneer' a right cross on the Jaw and
Lung went down apparently dead to the
world. Langford went to his comer.
when, his second began to tnko his
gloves otf Ho never even cast n glance
nt his fallen foe. To his amaiement,
however, before tho fatal out could bo
pronounced the prostrate Australian
struggled to his ft et nnd resumed the
light, curlier) soon being tailed.
"I waa sitting near Lang's corner and
leaned over to him and said; 'How nte
you feeling, 111117' He answered with
out the slightest trace of anger or rc.
sentment against hla oppunent, nnd In
Ills wild, genial manner:
"Hll" me, Mr. Mac, he's 'Ittlng 'ard
"I had always been nn admirer nf
Hill, but from that moment ho became
fixed In my mind a ono of the gamcsl
and bravest men I had ever met.
Floored Mm,
"In the slxlh round I said : 'do and
tako a chance, lllll.' He walked over,
and ns Lnngford swung nt him nnd
misled lllll hit him with a hhort blow
on the Jnw nnd knocked lilm down.
"ThN caused a tremendous sensation.
Langford was on his hands und ki.ocs
taking thn count.
"Hill at the count of three stepped
across nnd struck upward blow at
Langford, He rlJe.d afterward that
he was under tho Impression that Lang
ford was rising. The referee, without a
moment's hesitation llsiuall(led lllll,
and the contest was over,
"It In finite Imposslblo to any what
would have happened nnd how the con
test would have ended had Lang not
been disqualified, lllll Lang was at the
time still strong, gnmo and determined.
Langfonl was obviously tiring, und the
fact that his 'auctioneer' had not deliv
ered the goods seemed to have hail a
most ilepris"lng rITcct tisin him.
"lllll wai greatly tipet by thli dls
(ualillcutlon, the second In England,
