Wearing new and jaunty cops of black, the Washington Base Ball Club appeared before 5,(XX) persons at National Park yes terday afternoon, having just returned from its first western trip of the season. A coterie of young and athletic-looking men, bearing "Pittsburg" across the front of their shirts, among others, were in at tendance, and seemed to have lots of fun with the local nine. Washington started off with a show of activity, but Connie Mack, from the play ers' bench, breathed a hypnotic wave across the grounds, and throughout the re mainder of the exhibition the Schmelzites were, for the most part, like inanimate ob jects. It being ladies' day, the attendance was larger than it would otherwise have been, and the enthusiasm was great when Sel bach, the first man up, hit to Bierbauer, and beat the ball to first. Joyce, who fol lowed, promptly lifted the sphere to some where in the vicinity of Le Droit Park, and the concourse almost burst with joy. That was all the home team could do, however, until the eighth, when the hyp notic influence weakened just a little. In their half of the first the Pirates eas ily tied the score. Donovan took first, Stenzel was hit, and both moved up when Beckley sacrificed. Donovan scored when Crooks dropped Smith's high fly back of second, and Stonzel crossed the plate on Coogan's fumble of an easy bounder from Bierbaucr's bat. In the fourth Bierbauer singled to left, and Clingman followed with a little one to the pitcher, who threw to second, but Coogan muffed, and both run ners were safe. Clingman sacrificed; Sug den hit to Coogan, who fumbled, and then threw wild, Bierbauer scoring. Clingman trotted home when Hart singled, and both scored on Donovan's single. Stocksdale kept up the fun by hitting Stenzel, when Beckley hit to first.advancing his two prede cessors. Smith drove to left, permitting Donovan and Stenzel to complete the cir cuit, and Bierbauer ended the monotony by retiring at first. One more piratical score was made in the sixth. Donovan hit to right, and scored on Beckley's three-bagger. In the eighth a quintet was added on hits by Hart, Don ovan, Stenzel Beckley, and an error by Coogan. The final pair of runs for Washington were also made in the eighth on Coogan's hit to center, a short passed ball, Abbey's two-bagger, a sacrifice by Stocksdale and a double by Joyce. Washington had opportunities to* score in several other inning*, but failed to take advantage of them. The game was tire some throughout, the only relief being two good catches by Selbach and a creditable pick-up and throw to. home by Crooks, T^ie work of Coogan at siiort was a disappoint ment to the speptators, who had been promised something different.
