Bruck's brilliant pitching In the first II
anil second prevented the Climbers!0
from scoring, franc started the ?ame I x
with a double to center, hut a needed
hit failed to materialize. Jordan and ?
Thompson singled in succession to open
the second and advanced on a passed
ball, but died on second anil third when j
I Minn fanned, Sehaufelo popped to short j
left arid Russell was retired on strikes.
A liihtninK double play. Pick, Ar
raxon to Jordan, cut off a Skceter
chance in the second. Richmond broke
Into the run column in the third, when '
Crane beat out a hit over second and '
was forced by Arnuon, who stole sec- !
ond. Pick beat out a )iot drive he
tweeli first and second, Arragon scoring j
on Tiagressor's wild throw home. With
two down in the third Russell walked
Bruck and Truesdale and had three
balls on Buos before he located the j t
plate. lie then forced the hatter to
:!>? to Bates.
The Skeeters did not xet anything
resembling a hit until the fifth, when
Blake scratched a slow. hii;h bounder
to Crane and beat it out.

The Climbers blew up in the sixth. ! t
and before they recovered their balance j j
the Skeeters had put five runs across t
with the assistance of three rank
errors. Bues beat out a bunt to third.
Manning was safe on Pick's boot. Dem
mltt beat out a bunt that Russell over
ran and Bues scored on Tragressor's
sacrifice fly to Bates. Blake singled
for Jersey City's first clean hit, scoring
Manning. Russell juggled Purtell'fi
bunt and Demmitt scored. Blake took
third, scoring a moment later on a
Reynolds singled, putting Purtell on
third. Bruck missed a sriiheeze, but
Schaufele threw wild to Pick, letting
Purtell score, when he should have j
been an easy out. : T|
Fewster batted for Russell in the ?
seventh and singled to right. Cram : n
went to the box for Richmond when j Q
the Skeeters came to bat. He gave !
up one hit while doing the hurling, j
Purtell soaking a bingle behind first. i 0
Bruck settled down after the third ? tl
and Richmond connected safely but ?
once, Russell setting that in the |
seventh. The game was devoid of field- j
ing features. j (
Two games with the Skeeters are j t
scheduled for today. Dunnie has Cot- i t
trell and Cram left to do the hurling. j(
He expects to land at least one of the ' '!
clashes before moving on to Montreal i
for a four-game series with the Royals.

had reached the turning point.
An unfortunate accident marred the
start. It. Rolfe and Jake Tignor

when they collided, a house on the
corner obstructing the view. Both wer#
put out of the running
The others continued, as far as could
he learned, without mishap. Checking
stations had been established at 1'e
tersburg, South Hill. Oxford, Durham I
and Haleigh. The latter point was
where the motorists were due to turn [
homeward. As many were late in get- j
tinj; to that objective, it is probable ;
that the majority will be late in leav- j
ing this morning. They are due to
start at s o'clock and are supposed to !

IT STRIKES ME
By Tim Patch
It was a disastrous week for Jack
Dunn's Climbers, who, by the way, only
Justify their name now by being likened
to crabs, as they have certainly climbed
back steadily for several weeks. Tho
locals have fallen into a terrible slump,
which is only exceeded In the Inter
national by that of Jersey City. Each
of the teams won a game each and
dropped live since last Sunday.
All of the first division teams, excep't
Montreal, have tightened their hold,
while the leaders and the runner-ups
have both done the most consistent
work of the week. I'rovidence leads in
wins with seven, while the Grays have
only dropped one same. Buffalo fol
lows with four victories and two de
feats. Harrlshurg has flvo victories
and two defeats chalked up and has in
creased Its hold on third place slightly
as Montreal hroko even during the week
and fell off one point.
Rochester edged the Climbers and
Toronto out of the top positions in the
second divisions by winning live out of
eight games. Tho Hustlers, however,
are some distance in tho rear of Mont
real. while the Climbers are just half a
game behind the Ganzelites. Toronto,
which broke even during the week,
crept up slightly on Richmond while
it lost, but two games still separate
them. Jersey City trails far in the
rear, just six ?ames behind the locals.
The week was marked by tho loss of
three players to tho Internationals.
Outfielder Barney went higher up, be
ing purchased by the Yankees from
