Griffs Land Overtime Game When Williams Makes Wild Heave?Racing1
Eighteen-Inning Battle
Captured by Nationals
C. Williams' Wild Heave
Paves Way for Griffmen
to Beat White Sox.
Florida avenue stadium became the
"land of the midnight sun" yesterday
afternoon when Griffs Nationals
handed a setback to the world cham
pion White Sox In an eighteen-innlng
combat by a l-to-0 count
It was a pitchers' duel all the way.
King pin Walter Johnson working
the entire route for the Nationals,
while Claude Williams, of southpaw
in-and-out fame, did the duties for!
the White Sox. Claude has no one
to blame for this over-time defeat
but his wee little self" as his wild
heave in the eighteenth gave the
Griffmen their lonesome tally and
sent to a very late supper some 4.000
fans who were keyed up to high pitch.
Starting these ball games at 4:J0 is
all good and proper, but when they
ask local fandom to ait through two
real pitching battles It Is more than
is desired as many "wayouts" Jumped
Into one-armed lunch rooms to over
come the starvation period caused by
Umplre-in-Chief HUdebrand. in work
ing this game through the "midnight
sun period."
Outside of Williams' wild heave,
which paved the way for the local*.
Walter Johnson and Eddie Ainsmlth
are credited with timely clouts which
put the Nationals in the running. It
.happened in the eighteenth after Fos
ter had popped out. Alnsmith singled
#to center and moved all the way to
the far corner when Johnny Collins
delayed a few seconds in recovering
Johnson's clout in the same ter^tory. |
The Nationals' rooters appealed to !
Bert Shotton to deliver and because
of being over-anxious this speedy out- 1
fielder allowed a hook ball to pass I
over. He fouled off the next and I
things looked dreary for local fan- J
dom. but Claude Williams made the j
next issue a gift by heaving a curved 1
ball to the grand stand which placed '
Ainsmlth over the dish with the de
ciding tally.
Many opportunities were presented
to'both teams to push tallies through
but emergency air-tight pitching
clamped down the lid. Johnson's
credit for nine strikeouts Is not any
thing remarkable, as Claude Williams
Jell victim on five occasions, and Rls
herg twice. Sensational fielding by
1.avan. Judge and Shanks at different
times saved the day for the locals,
while the champion White Sox out
field was compelled to work overtime
in tearing down twenty-three clouts !
In their directions.
r*laude Williams, although wild
pitching himself out of this over
time battle, demonstrated that he has
more In his southpaw slant than the
ordinary heaver, as he forced the
Nationals to pop up for six straight
innings and not until the seventh did
the Griffmen ground one to the inner
works, this coir rg f.om the bat of
Johnny Lavan. Milan Immediately
followed with a tingle to center.
Hopes of no-hit fame slightly rattled
the southpaw twirler, as he issued
free t. asportation to Howard
Shanks, but Joe Judge's effort was
a fly to Collins.
Morgan was hit in the ribs in the
next session and moved along by Fos
ter's blow to right, but Ainsmith's
attempt to sacrifice resulted in a
force-out of Ray at the far corner.
Hopes were past when Johnson and
I-a**n skyed the ball. The Nationals
did not have another chance until
the twelfth, when two men were
down and Judge singled over second
and Morgan drew a free pass, but
Foster was not there with the pinch
In the first sessim the White Sox
proved a worry to the Kansas Cy
clone, as Murphy s hit and Lavan's
error of Weaver's mfleld out made
them look very much alive, but a
fast double play by Lieut Johnny
killed off the going.

Is Captured by This Pair
at Pimlico.
?r Jtzmyr doy i.e.
The condition* of the Pimknsss
provided that the winners of the
race decide among themselves who
waa to retain the historic Wood
lawn vim, Three ways were dis
cuaaed aa to lta disposition: Win
ter* to to** a coin for It; acre* to
race for It thl* fall, or acre* to
race for It Friday, the closing day
of the meeting.
A* both the owner* will not *htp
their horae* Immediately to Ja
maica^ it i* possible that the Jock
ey Club will arrange a match race
for War Cloud and Jack Har*, Jr.,
on Friday. Huch a race would
mark another epoch in Maryland
turf niatory.
War Cloud, A. K. Macomber'a
prise three-year-old, captured the
first division of the Preakneaa Stake,
at Pimlico yesterday. Jack Har*,
Jr., made a run-away affair of the
?econd diviaion and won easily.
War Cloud waa favored at the
break, and Jockey Johnny Loftua
got his mount away from the poat
in One style. George Starr went on
the rail with Flags racing him hard
at the first turn but War Cloud was
racing easily In third poaition.
At the turn In the back *tr*tch
the pace began to tell, on George
Starr and Flaga and both dropped
back giving way to War Cloud.
After getting into the *tretch Lof
tu* touk hi* mount to the front and
drew him away for a safe distance
and let him down. Sunny Slope
came with a rush about sixty yard*
from the finish and Loftus had to
resort to the whip. His mount,
however, answered gamely to the
beating and won going away. Sunny
Slope went Into aecond poaition with
Lanius, the favorite, who came from
behind in time to get the place.
War Cloud stepped the distance
in 1:53 2-5, and proved that he
would have ahown better In the
Kentucky Derby had the track been
to his liking.
In the second division although It
did not call to the post the high class
horses as did the first division, the
patrons were given a run for their
money when Jack Hare, Jr., grabbed
the declaion.
The race was Jack Hare. Jr.'s from
the break, when he got off to a good
lead and drew away from his field
for the entire distance. The Porter
hung on to second podltloa gamely,
but never could get up with the
Troms la >Mort, an imported colt by
Verwood-Marsa, was the contender
for a mile, but could not stand the
pace and soon tired and began to drop
out of the running. Jack Hare, after
once getting In the stretch, took
things easy and won aa he pleased.
The Porter holding to second position
the entire distance, came in for the
place with Kate Bright third.
Officials at the track estimated that
more than 5,000 persons turned out to
witness the turf classic of Maryland.
An hour before the first race was
scheduled to be run every seat in
the grand stand was taken and an
endless procession of people filed In
to the track.
Such Interest was manifested in the
winners of the Preakness that a match
race between War Cloud and Jack
Hare, Jr.. is practically assured for
Friday, th* closing day of th* meet.
Other races carded for the after
noon were of high caliber and fur
nished an afternoon of good sport.
The Monumental Handicap, a six fur
long sprint, was annexed by Tea
