Sisler and j
Lead Heav

the result of the series nbw un<
again pounded the old apple yesl
and Jose Acosta, piling up seven

the nervy and effective party for
all, worked in his usual able styl<
If Sisler continues to hU in th?
remaining games of the series as
he has done in the first three, he i?
going to be so far ahead of Tristam
Speaker that the Indian manager
-will h? ve to set an unprecedented
pace t- catch him.
?> George's contribution to the hil
total was four, in five times at bat
fbret of them were doubles. In the
three *ames played he has secured
air- a*fe ones in fifteen trips up,
&a ? of his efforts being two sacktrs
In addition he personally conducted
four runs across the plate
^iiol?*on Also Hitting Ball.
Rivalling the mighty Sisler dur
log th* series has been the work
of Baby Doll Jacobson, the lumbering
center fielder.
Yesterday he made four hits in
"four times at bat. Including one
healthy triple. During the visit ol
the Brownies, Jake has totalled
"seven bingles in thirteen trips to
pan. In view of the fact that he
appears right on the heels of Sisler,
is it any wonder that pitchers don't
walk George oftener?
Shaw was ineffective yesterday,
but Griff permitted him to stay in
until the Browns had gathered ten
tallies. Acosta worked the final
Xhree frames and allowed but thre?
runs, which was fair enough under
the circumstances.
... Though harboring no pennant
hopes. Jimmy Burke is fighting
hard to maintain his place in the
first division. Yesterday's victory
put the Browns back at the .?0C
mark and all indications are that
they are going to remain there.
They have lost none of their pep.
Shocker Ha* Eaaj Time.
I 2 Shocker traveled along in eas>
fashion, tightening up only wher
necessary. The Griffs counted foi
"the first time in the fifth on consecutive
hits by Gharrity and Acosta
and Judge's long fly to Jacobson
In the ninth Eilerbe's single was
followed by O'Neill's double, bringing
in the second and last run
Otherwise the home gang was help*4eas.
though they secured a total
of ten hits.
Bunching their hits for the firs
time in the third, the visitors count
ed four runs, batting around. Se
#reid walked and Shocker sent hin
to third with a single. The catchej
scored when Shocker was forced oi
Gerber's rap to Harris. Gedeoi
tripled, scoring: Gerber. and counte?
himself when Sisler doubled t'
right. Jacobson followed with on<
of his numerous hits, scaring Sisler
Again their bats were busy in th
fifth and two more tallies came in
After Gedeon and Sisler had sin
gled Jacobson sacrificed them alonj
and Wfliams singled, counting Ged
eon. Smith hit to Judge, who at
tempted to get Sisler at the plate
but failed. Gharrity. however
pegged to tliird and snagged Will
lams, who was trying to get to<
free on the paths.
Browns Like Shaw** Slants.
Shaw suffered again in the sixth
when the Browns again batte<
around and amassed four mon
points. Shocker walked and Gerbei
singled. Gedeon sacrificed and Sis
ler doubled, counting the two 01
the pathways. Jacobson again drov?
Sisler home with a single. He wen
to third on short singles by Will
iams and Smith and crossed th<
f 'plate on Tobin's infield out.
Acosta took up the pitching jol
In the seventh and emerged froii
that round without allowing ;
Brownie to sec first. In the eighth
however, a double by Sisler, a tripl*
by Jacobson and an infield out add
ed two more runs.

jANGAN hurls
one-hit game
)nly 25 Atlantic A. 'C. BatsTien
Face Mohawk Twirler
In Eight Rounds.
Mohawk A. C. played a great game
esterday against the Atlantic A.
and with superb pitching by 1
angan ttyey romped home with a 1
0-to-0 score. A prettier exhibition j
f pitching has seldom been seen
l Union Park than that of Langan. j
he game ended in the eighth inning j
n account of darkness, and during j
lat time only twenty-live men faced t
im. With a good curve ball, a fast '
ne end exceptional headwork. the j
lohawk hurler either turned back j
be hitters or caused them to tap '
asy rollers to the infield. Th?- lone i
it made off his delivery was one of J
he scratch variety by Shortstop;
Lrebs. He never l*eached second
ase. as he was doubled up with the
ext batter.
Mofcuwka Perform Well.
Along with the fine work of their
Ucher, the Mohawks put up a
lassy brand of baseball. The only j
ling to mar the fielding of tne Winers
was two errors made in the ,
rst inning, which allowed two men j
> reach first base. The first man to
enefit by the miscues was Krebs.
ut he was caught by Second Baselan
Burns as he was running to
econd on a hit ball by Xtedham.
'ecdham reached first base as Jenins
dropped Burns* throw, with a
ouble play in sight. He was nippea
rying to steal second. In the sixth
nning the fourth and last man of .
he Atlantics to get on the paths j
as Pitcher McCleran. who walked. ,
nd he was left stranded on first.
Burns cavorted around second !
ase in fine style, contributing sevral
fast plays, including the double
lay getting Krebs and Needham.
Krebtt (irtH Only llit.
Krebs was the only Atlantic man
rho seemed at all familiar with the
hoots of Langan. On each of his
hree appearances he hit the ball. In
he first he was safe on Dyer's eror.
The sole hit of his team was a
'cxas leaguer which shortstop Dyer
ould not hold after running from
lis position into left field. On his
ast time at the plate he bounced
ne pas! Langan which seemed good
or a hit. but Dyer ran over,
rrabbed it and threw him out by
wo steps. The Mohawk shortstop
lso made himself conspicuous in
he field. With the exception of a
ast roller which hy fumbled. he
ooked at ease on anything that
ame within reach.
The Mohawks did most of th/?ir
coring by healthy clouting. Their
leven safe ones came at opportune
noments. a circuit smash topping
heir batting efforts. In the eighth I
Cirby and Dyer pulled two succes- j
ive steals which netted a run. The j

jriff's Idea to
th "Bean Ball"
resort to the 'bean ball' and that
ihe other players should pledge
themselves not to countenance it.
rhen. if any pitcher wered ishonest
enough to violate his pledge, the
)ther players on the team could
Lake the matter into their own
lands and bring about his suspension
or retirement from the game."
This appears to be the only plausble
solution of the difficulty. Legislation
against the "bean ball"
Rill certainly not accomplish the
Purpose. But with the players unJer
pledge and the enforcement of
:hat pledge left in their hands it
is not hard to believe that the
pitcher who insists on aiming at
he batter s head would not find the
atmosphere of the major leagues
nealthy or invigorating.
As matters now stand. 99 per cent
>f the players are bitterly opposed
o the methods that have been
tdopted by a very few slabmen in
he circuit. Given the authority to.
ict upon such cases, they would cerainlv
eliminate the offenders.
Feeling Grown; Cure \eeded.
Feeling is now at fevefr heat, and [
he players are threatening to resort
0 drastic methods to prevent the I
eappearance of Mays in the box. As 1
1 unit they are ready to leave the
5eld before batting against him.
San Johnson, who is withholding
judgment on Mays' status, faces a
lard task to satisfy this unrest, uness
he accedes to the players' denands.
While the public may sometimes
>e fooled by "I didn't try to" state- I
nents of pitchers who injure bat-1
ers, the players never are. They
^variably know when the act is in- |
entional. It is fitting and proper]
hat they should be allowed to be |
he judge and jury In such cases.
Griffith's honor system plan is un- |
loubtedly worth consideration on
he part of the men. It is the logi-J

Players held together by sympat

Concerted action Already has been^frtaken
by members of the Detroit I rand

vious that Mays has too little con- !
trol of the ball to be permitted to .
remain in big league baseball.
<?rlff Think* Action I)nr.
Clark Griffith, president of the
Wathingtpn club and a director of
the American League, stated today
that the American League should
take some action in connection with
the death of Ray Chapman. Griffith
said he would not precipitate
any action, but would await action!
by Ban Johnson. He would not in- J
timate the action he believed the J
league would take.
Billy Evans and Billy Dineen.
veteran umpires, attack Mays' alibi
of a roughened ball vigorously.'
They point out that hundreds of*
balls have been thrown out be-1
cause of slightly soiled surfaces,
and that ever since the introduction
of the rule barring rough balls, umpires
have watched the balls in play
with exceptional care.
Carl Mays gave out a lengthy J
statement today in which he reiterated
his entire innocence and
his intention to stick to major '
league, ball. Owners of the Yankees
have asserted they wilt back
their star as far as they are able.
Mays is a university man. of an in- f
telligence higher than the average, ^
and analyses his position very M
clearly. h
"Any man who believes a pitcher j 5
would deliberately throw a ball at j
another's head in a ball game is p
foolish." said Mays. "Even if such : *j
a thing* were done, it is difficult for ^
me to see how that pitcher could i
believe he would hit the man at r
whom he was aiming. It'
"I know and so does anyone else ! v
who gives the matter thought that , iJ
poor Chapman was killed because I \
he tiidn't get out of the way of the j
ball that was practically certain to |
hit him. He crowded the plate, j c
That was expected of him because , s
there were runners on the bases ' j
and he was doing his best to score j
them. The ball that hit him was" i
a fast one. nota curve. A slight J
move would have saved Chapman. '
"My grief over the accident is v
great, but it is something which ?
could not be helped. 1 intend n> ^
remain in baseball and show the j
fans that the things which have
been said of me are either malicious
or ill-advised."
Veteran fans and baseball experts
declare that Mays is the target for *
so much attack because of his un- j \
popularity as a ball player. Anr'i
other pitcher would have received; r
only sympathy from everyone. ?lj
Maya Widely t npopular.
Last year when Mays was a mem- lj
ber of the Boston Bed Sox feeling 2
between him and the fans became
sn strained that Mays threw a baseball
into the grandstand and walked ,
ofT the field, refusing to pitch for the : ^
Bed S<^x any more. This Episode ^
precipitated a controversy which j
lasted an entire year. j j1
Lunts was at shortstop when the j
Cleveland ball team took their posi- , j
tions in today's game at the Polo
Grounds. Players of both teams :
wore black bands on their sleeves
and all flags were half-masted. Scout
j Jack McAllister was in charge of the; I
j Clevelands in the absence of Tris '
i Speaker. Jamieson was in center
fi^ld. The Yankees s*emed even more !
depressed than the Clevelands. 3
