Johnson and his younger oppo.ient each pitcned an excellent game. Errors play d an important part in the scoring if the runs on both sides, although mlessly played, ''it is probable that F.sle- would have beaten the Washing ton star u a 3-to-0 count. Slter had the better of the hit argu ment, the Browns getting seen safeties off Johnson Jgainst six (iff the St. Louis loft handei.

This mis ji.k however, ,jae the Nationals their lone tilii of the game. Without the aid of the boot, the Griffmen would have suffered a shut-out As to control. Johnson had a bit bet ter of the argument than Sisler Sisler patscd two baiters, and hit another. Johnson failed to walk a Brownie and the on! time he lacked control was wnen no nil Msier on the leg with a lull that bioke inside.

This All-Star combination again proved too much for Manager Bayliss" sea-soldiers, as when the final out was made in the ninth the All-Stars were on the big end of a 6 to 0 score. "Itooney" Vern'tein. who did the heavlns for the Government Hospital club all season, was on the mound for the All-Stars, and he set the sea soldiers down with four scattered bineles, and sent fourteen back to the bench by the strike-out route. Mana ger Bayliss started the hurling for the service club, but the All-Stars hammered his delivery in the sixtn frame, and he retired under fire in favor of Quakenbush. By bunching hits In the second, third and fourth the All-Stars gathered a three-run lead and added two more in the sixth, when Bayliss weakened. Vernstien was in hot water on two occasions, but the brilliant support of his team mates at the critical stages kept the Marines from registering a tally. The score: MARINES. AB. R.

BOSTON WINS FINAL CAME FROM INDIANS Red Sox Captures Pitchers' Duel from Cleveland in Hard Fought Game, 1 to 0 Other American Games. Here is that famous $100,000 infield of the 1914 Philadelphia Athletics. It was the hitting and defensive strength of this quartet that kept the Mackmen in the race, and the fans of Philadelphia, after taking one glance at the American League standings, realize their value. These same fans who pulled for this quartet last season are now following Pat Moran's Phillies. There is but one reason, and that is the Quaker City wants a winner, and Moran's crew is out in front in the National League race. ' Totals 37 0 4 r 14 AU.-STAHS. AB. B. H. FO.

Chief Bender is slipping. Once the most feared and most marvelous pitcher In baseball now only an uncertainty on the mound. That's Bender and there Is real pathos in his decline. Bender battled -for nearly fifteen, years under the Mackmen standard, and rarely during all those years was he ever driven from the mound. Oftentimes he was beaten, but rarely was he forced from the box by a fusillade pi hits. But now all Is changed. Bender, work ing for the Baltimore Feds, takes the "long walk" often. The old speed has gone from the once mighty right arm; the curves no longer deceive. Bender has been batted from the box almost as many times this year as he was In all his years In the American League. And no man feels the tragedy of the fall of. the once-time mighty Indian more keenly than does the chlet himself. Martin Delaney says It's easy to make high-Jumping records on the Pacific Coast, because out there they Jump with the wind, and even If a Jumper tips the bar, the wind blowing against It. will keep it from dropping oft" the peg. Cleveland. Ohio, Aug. 29. The Red Sox made it three out of four in the series with the Indians today In a pitching duel between Leonard and Klepfer. The lone run of the game resulted when Speaker scratched an infield single and was forced at second by Hoblltzel.

Com iskey. of Chicago, is not trying to win the 'American League pennant. He is trying tO bUV it. Of emirss th mtViA9 employed In this procedure are absolute ly aDove board. They are absolutely In accord with the laws of huslnes fciii. ness in every detail. But buying a pen nant and winning a pennant represent the difference between baseball as a sport and baseball as a business. From the viewpoint of snort winning pennant is achieving glory. From the viewpoint of business, winning a pennant is realizing big financial returns upon an investment. The White Sox broke from the barrier In the American League scramble last April filled with hope. They rushed along the highway at a pennant-winning clip for a considerable stretch. Then the. heavy hitting of Cobb. Crawford and Veach and the -improved pitching of the Ked box were thrown in the balance j against the Chicago club and it slipped DacKwara. it was apparent that it could not hope to beat out the Red Sox and the Tigers unless Injuries or illness tackled the Detroit and Boston clubs. Briefly, the White Sox were found wanting. Understand, the White Sox are to be given credit for having been a baseball layout of more than ordinary propor tionsbefore the purchase of Jackson even a team good enough to gallop through the stretch only a length or two behind the others. However, the fact re mains that it had been conclusively proved that in a fifty-fifty break the Red Sox and Tigers would soow the White Sox the way to the tape. PayluE for It. Thus it was apparent that Chicago would 1101 win the pennant, but there Is a chance that it may be able to buy It and buy It legitimately. The ex pression "buying it" must not be con strued to mean that the methods em ployed are not on " the upandup," that the race is fixed. It Is merely that Mr. Comiskey realized that the club as It stood, was not capable of bagging; the prize; that the acquisition of minor leaguers would not turn the trick; thai It was necessary If Chicago were to win, to purchase a player of the type of "Joe" Jackson, a player who would give to the club the necessary hitting' strength. Since last wlner Mr. Comiskey has expended 394.500 for baseball players. Adding to this a payroll that reaches $100,000. It can readily be appreciated that not all of this outlay can be real ized In the world series alone. But there Is still a stretch to cover before the world series is reached, and with a club at the top. or near It, boasting such attractions as "Eddie" Collins. "Joe" Jackson, "Eddie" Murphy. "Happy" Felsch and othera, the possi bilities In the way of gate receipts can readily 'be appreciated. And then, too. a pennant winner Is always a good attraction throughout the following season. How Abont. Other Oitnerst Mr. Comiskey has done no mora than any other club owner with a bank roll would have dona If the opportunity presented, and the "kick" Is not being registered on that account.
