Errors Give Red Sox Second Game of Series?Expect Large Crowd Today
SAM JONES' SHOOTS BREAK ' NATIONALS' WINNING STREAK Johnny Lavan Gums Up Game and Red Sox Get Long End of 5-to-i Count?Ay?rs in Hot Water Over Route. HIEF Chef Johnny Lavan, assisted a great deal by Dr. Wyatt Yancey Ayer? served the Boston red-hose tribe a full dinner pail yesterday afternoon at the Florida avenue bailiwick, despite these war-time conditions, and gave the Hub City tribe a chance to romp off with the long end of a 3-to-l count against the Nationals in the second game of the series. The serving of this meal took place ia the final two innings, although statistics will show the Na tionals leading from the first frames. Griff's crew was outbatted and outfielded up to this chapter, but Doc Ayers, of Hillsville Mountain fame, still held his jinx over this Yankee crew, and with an even break of luck would have re corded a victory over Barrows' clubmen. Ragged fielding in the pinches in these final two sessions cooked the goose that the Griff men served to the Sox, as Lavan pulled down an "a la Nick Altrock," muffing the ball in the eight frame, paving the way for the visitors to tally, while "Buss Boy" Picinich kicked into the same league and made the romping easy for the Cape Cod team. It was a pitchers' duel aa fer ssH run fettine was concerned, but Doc Aycra can thank bis stars today (or not having a worse drubbing hsnded him as thirteen, saie whacks wer? obtained off bla delivery dur ing th? nine frames, while Sam Jone* ?et tbe local? down with four ?afe b?ngles. The distance under these trying circumstances proved just the least bit too far for the HUlsvlll? mounds- : man. a? he weakened In th? eight when two tallies wer? rana against bins, whft? tn the ninth another one shot across th? counting dish. Er rors, which were of th? amateur kind, helped th? visitor?, although Doe Ayer? paved the way for the men on the path? when these mis cues happened. Jones' wildness placed him in many jams, but bril liant fielding by his team mates and phenomonal pitching shoved him across the burdens which existed throughout the contest. Here is how the meni was served during the battle. Howard Shank.? singled to left on his first trip to the plate, and with a stolen base and wild pitch by j Jones, he romped to the far corner, but Foster failed to help him out as he willed at three bad ones. Judge came through with a long ?sacrifice fly to Hooper on which Shanks easily tallied the lone run .?cored by the Nationals. The eighth inning proved a night mare for both Doc Ayers and 7,000 fans present as Mclnnis doubled to left and ti ored when Whlteman followed suit in tbe same direction. Scott hit, plac itiar Whlteman at the far corner, but A?iiew failed, as he fouled out. Mu?s, Lati mg for Jones, was given life when Lavasi allowed his high fly to pop out ? G his band, and the bases were clog gcd when Hooper Faced Aver?. Harry ;-roiiiided to Morgan, who forced \.hiteman at the plate, but In an at tempt for a two-ply killing Pincinlch J 'few ovtr Joe Hudge's bead Into the, i-itcus ?eats in the right field, and Hcovt easily registered at the block. This wa. the end of the run getting In *.?ie ri?shth session, but it proved ibi la? h to beast the Nationals, as ? hewn grounded out for third man dovili. In the ninth frame Boston sdded one nuire when Schang opened the way vitti a bingle and was forced out by r.uth. Ruth in turn wa.? forced out by Mclnnis, but In attempting to double up Stuffy at the second sack on White man's grounder Lavan threw past Morgan and the fans settled back with Red Hose warriors on third and second, with two down. Scott thon ??lashed one past Foster, which taliiei Mclnnis with another counter for the Boston team. Ayers was constantly In hot water ?a two hits and a base on balls in the first inning by the Red Sox re sulted in a big naught because of brilliant flalding by his teammates. Again In the second, a hit and an error by himself failed to deliver any runs, as Hooper and Shean pop ed out. Two hits, a sacrifice and a force out granted nothing In the fourth, while a base blow by S'-hani. In the fifth went for nothing when Biiby Ruth only grounded to Mor gan. Scott wasted another one ?vith two out In the sixth, a? Agnew grassed the ball to Lavan and was eaay picking?. A base on ball? and a hit hy Schani in the lucky ses sion after two were down was pass ed among the discard, as Ruth only sent Milan on a long Journey to th? flag pole In centerfleld to pull down hia offering. The Nationals put it up to John ny Lavan in the fourth inning, when Judge and Morgan drew free transportation after two were out. But Johnny only fouled to Mclnnis. In the fifth Dor Ayers arrived ?afe by an Infield hit antl Schang blew Shank? offering, but Foster could not advance either runner a pe-r tv'htn h?? rtr-w- ti Whlteman.

BENEFIT GAMES AT HILL TODAY Navy Leaguers Battle Quan tico Marines in Twin Bill at Georgetown Local followers of the indepen dent and league games will be given another chance today to witness Lieut. Johnny Craig* crack Quan tico Marines In action against the pick of the Navy Interbureau League, A double bill la carded for Georgetown field, the first game be ing scheduled to start at 2 p. m. In th?? first game the Operation team, whi<h was beaten by the Ma rines in the last start, will face the Sea Soldiers, while the All-Stars, un der the direction of Capt. Matthews, will face the Virginians in the night cap. It is certain that there wilt he. in addition to the usual rivalry be tween the Sailors and Marines, an incentive to extraordinary effort on account cf the 16-to-3 walloping that the Jackies handed to the la-eat he. n? ks on the 9th. But there is still more beneath the surface in the staging of the games. The Marines lost out by a narrow mar gin in the first series of the Navy Interbureau League, and have sworn vengeance against Operation.?*, the first series pennant winners. Feel ing runs high between the two base ball organizations, and it is no mere truess that the games will be a fln sh fight, with no quarter either piven or received. The dope on this contest Is In teresting, but lends to no safe ?around for prediction. On May 1$. at Quantico, Operations, lacking all of its regular batteries, was defeat ed by the Marines to the extent of 9 to 0. In the first game at Ameri can League Park, on June 9, Oper ations, having lost its star third baseman, Degnan, by an accident just before play w-as called, and hav ing given up its craftiest pitcher. Kelly, to work for the All-Star team in the second game, ??a again defeated l.y the Marines by the score of 5 to 0. In the second game on the same (date, pitching for the All-Star team. i Kelly let the Marines down with .the tiny end of a 16-to-S count. ? Muring May and June. Operations w*as l> ting through the N-?vy ln i - t hure; u L"-i*;uc with ? wins and |1 loi-s, defeating ai! comers but one, 'Supplies and Accounts. Capt. iCralge thinks that the Marine teams which pliyed on June 9. if reversed ?as to the navy teams which they opposed, would clean up. The games a re to settle all these old ?scores, and differences of opinion. In the meantime both teams have been gradually strengthening their ; runks. On the 16th. Operations de fcsited the crack Rex A. C, 3 to 2; Ofl the 23d, they played Reina Mer cedes to a doubtful 3-to-2 loss. The Quantico sea soldiers have also in the last few days added more big leaguers to their lineup, and on the 24th opened the second series of the Navy Interbureau League by squelching Ordnance to the tune of 19 to 4 in 7 innings. Both teams look much stronger than when they met on June 9. NO MORE TITLE EVENTS CARDED FOR DISTRICT The District championship event for women players which was de cided over the Columbia Country Club ?ourse on Friday will be the local titular event of the 1918 sea son, as no titles will or have been carried by any of the tourneys list ed for the year.

Will Last Lifetime. H- FRAXK H. TOI KG. The set of steel-shaft clubs which Allan Ui?d. the Chevy Ch-ase crack haa been using in tournaments this ' year, has attracted considerable at- . ten tlon among local golfers, and haa , caused considerable discussion as to : the merits of the steel over the ? wooden handles. Laid, who is the, inventor of the steel snafu, haa sold i his patent rights to one of the large sportings goods manufacturers. He j has been using these new clubs for j over a season and this fact, together ; with his well-known ability aa a, I player and student of the game, ? should give hia arguments In favor ; of the steel shaft considerable weicht * The new club, which is made of? light steel, can be made any desired weight. On^e made, after the player j gets It to his liking. It will laat a ? lifetime as it will neither rust, break ' nor "give." While tbe expense ia ' slightly more than the wooden club ] at the start, the fact that no cTub J ever haa to be replaced more than ' evens up ihe count from the monetary ' viewpoint, to say nothing of the fact j that the owner of the steel duba U 1 never heard "alibiing*? because he ! has broken his "favorite** club. Wood is ?omething like the human ; race, it he-rins dying from the date of its birth. After it is a few months ! old. or if it gets wet, it bocine I "giving" a little which means that ; its owner has to constantly adjust his game to allow for the slow, but gradual, changes in his club. If he does not do this, he finds hia shots are not wha^t they used to be. This is especially true of his drives, as he not only does not get hi* usual distance but finds himself slightly slicing his ball. The -question of wooden vs. steel ?clubs has also been taken up by the ? sporting goods firm which is now , handling the steel clubs. It has a j laboratory at which it makes all of j its experiments on questions of this kind. On the question at hand, a driving machine which sends every liait away with the same force and to exactly the same spot. While ex periments with the steel clubs have shown that they do not vary at alt those with the wooden clubs showed all kinds of kinks and variations. [After a number of consecutive drives. |a gradual sUce was noted in the ?wooden-shaft clubs while experiments ?with cluV>s that had been wet showed , both changes in length aa well as ?direction. I A number of "pros" have been try ling out^these new stee.l clubs and' ?speak well of them and it would no: the at all surprisinc if. when the war ?is over and a supply of steH can be johtained for turnin-z out these clubs ? in sufficient quantity. |WaetsBsPy all ?players will he n?tinc the nm tvpe : COLOR*?
