LOST A I'OORLY PLAYED GAME.
The Senator* Disappointed a Large
Number at National Park.
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
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
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. Score:
