STAR OF THE BOSTON OUTFIT THIS SPEAKER. MISPLAYS CAUSE OF FIVE OF NATIONALS' SIX DEFEATS Team Unfortunate in Making Costly Errors.' Johnson to Attempt to Tame Red Sox Today. BY J. ED GBILLO. Five of the six defeats which the Na tionals suffered this spring have re sulted from errors. The first New York game here last week was the only one of these games which cannot be attributed to misplays. There have been few errors made by Griffith's team this spring which have not been costly, and yesterday was not an exception to the rule. The reason for this, however, is not hard to find. Being a weak hitting team, it is neces sary for It to have airtight fielding so as to hold the opposing team to a minimum score, for any time it gets over three runs the Nationals chances are slim. Errors, or course, are a part of the game. There is no way to prevent them, in fact it speaks well for the standard ball players have attained that there are not more misplays. To date no team the Nationals have met has outplayed them. When they have been defeated they have beaten themselves. It is becoming more appar ent with every game, however, that more batting strength is needed. The hitting is lamentably weak, and while it seems certain that there will be improvement it is a long while coming. The announcement is made by Manager Onfflth that, beginning next Tuesday, games on the local grounds will begin at 4 o clock. 1< or the past two seasons the starting time here has been which seems to have proven very satisfactory, and the change comes as surpr se. in every other city the trend has been for earlier starts, and in every fhstance where the patrons of the game have been given an opportunity to express their de sires in tiie matter ^lie games have been sent forward as much as an hour over the old time. It would seem a wise move here to allow the patrons of the park to vote on the question and let the majority It does not pay to take liberties with t"e throwing arras of that Boston out field. There is no better throwing trio anywhere, and it was thought this fact had been impressed on all players who have been in this company for a year or more. Whatever chance there was for the Nationals to tie the score vesterday was thrown away in the eighth nnin;?, which Schaefer opened with a three oase hit. There was but one run needed to tie, and surely no team cou!d ask for a bet ter start. With none out Flynn raised a short fly to left. Lewis caught the ball about twenty yards behind shortfield. vet Schaefer attempted to score after the ball was caught with the result that Nunamaker had the ball waiting for him t as he slid toward the plate. True, Schae fer might not have scored had he waited for the next two batters to bring him in. but it would have looked like better base ball to take that chance. Groom would have gone along swim mingly had it not been for Schaefer's muff of Nunamaker's fly in the second inning with one run over the plate and two out. After this misplav Boston scored three runs, where it should have had but one. Groom was not as effective as he has been for the reason that Bos ton hit everything he offered In the pinches. Walter Johnson will try his hand at taming the Red Sox this afternoon. He beat them in Boston a few days ago on f a day when he was far from being at his best, and he looks to have a good chance to repeat this performance today. Ci cotte or Pape, most likely the former, will be on the slab for the visitors. The first four men In Griffith's batting order are going fairly well with the stick. Any one of them is apt to get a hit when it is needed, but when those rour have been up the chances for hit ting are very sliaht. To date Foster is the mainstay of the fleam with the bat, while Milan and Schaefer are going fairly well but from there on down hits are as scarce as hen's teeth. Considering the inability of a majority of the team to make a re- 1 spectable showing with the but, it la really surprising t?at the greater number of games the team has played have been Victoria, and It speaks well for the work the pitchers have beon doing. Those three run* the Nationals scored in the second inning, which allowed them to tie the score, were really a gift. With two out and two on bases Moeller hit a high fly to center field. Speaker. In going after the ball, caught his spikes In the sod and fell, allowing the hit to go for three bases, and an error by Hall, which followed tied the score. It is mare than likely that Griffith will be forced to work one of his young pitch ers for the first time yiis season tomor row. With Hughes on the injured list Walker and Groom having worked the last two games, and Johnson slated for today. Griffith is almost compelled to give one of hts kids a trial, and it will most likely be Cashlon. He might In a pinch br.ng Walker out again, for that worthy contends that he is now in good form and ready to do all the work that can be given him. Sooner or later, however, Griffith will have to work his youngsters, for his pitching staff is now too curtailed to go along working his veterans only. There is no way for an opposing team to play for Foster when he ;s at bat. The little fellow has the knack of being able to place the ball toward any opening on either side of the held. In the fij*s* inning yesterday he demonstrated this fact. When Moeller started down on the first ball pitched to Poster, 'Wagner leit his position to cover. They had I< oster figured as a right field hitter and kept that side of tho infield protected. But Foster was equal to the emergency, and when he saw short field left vacant he promptly pulled the bail through thpre and Moeller went all the way to thiiu Foster Is one of the cleverest hitters that ever wore a National uniform, for the reason that he can hit into either field and uses good judgment at the bat. There is no more natural batter than Tris Speaker. He is a most impressive looking chap at the bat. and regardless of where the ball is pitched he stands a good chance of connecting with it and is apt to hit into either of the fields. He got three clean hits yesterday and played a splendid garaain the field. His forward running catch %f Schaefer s short was the best play of the day and robbed Germany of a base hit. "Xerkes is out of the game with a sore finger and Clyde Engel took his place. He had but one chance in the field and got but one hit. a bad bounder at I* oster in the final inning. . Engel is a most val uable utility man for the reason that he can Play any position in either the in or out field, and is above the average as a batter. There were all sorts of freakish plays in yesterday's game, and though the Na tionals scored five runs they fell short and were just nosed out. In tne fi-st Inning Moeller walked and took third on Foster's single. He latei* scored on Sohaefer's sacrifice h*t, but that anl that came out of what promised to be a good start. ? In the second the game was virtually lost, though the Nationals JfnaPage^ to tie the score in their half. A mufTed flv by Schaefer caused most of the trouble. Bradley opened the round with a lilt, but the next two batters were taken care of by Flynn and Groom. Wagner, however, came along with an unexpected two-bagger to right which scored Bradley, and then Schaefer muffed Nunamaker's tty. This left the opening which Boion wanted, for Hall followed with a single and Hooper drove out a double, all of which netted four runs. Luck favored the locals in their hair, and they tied the score on a single hit, and that was a fluke. Hall walked Knight, but struck out McBride,. Henry died at first, but Groom drew himself a pass. Then Moeller sent a long fly to center which Speaker would have caught but for a fall, and two runs came home while Moeller landed on third, from where he scored when Hall fumbled and threw Foster's grounder wild to first. Here matters stood until the fifth, when the locals forged to the front as the result of a batting rally. With Moeller out of the way Foster singled and Milan promptly followed with a double to right. Schaefer hit to cen ter for a single, Foster scoring, but Speaker's throw nailed Milan at the plate. Flynn ended the round with a tap to Hall. It was not until the eighth that the visitors scored again, and then they won the game. Nunamaker opened this inning with a triple to the bleachers. Hall was hit by a pitched ball. Hooper hit sharply to Knight, who made a splendid stop, but threw poorly to Mc Bride to force Hall. Engel forced Nun amaker at the place, but Speaker came along with a hit which scored a couple of rtins. Neither side scored thereafter. The score: WASHINGTON". AB. R. II. FO. A. E. Moeller.

It is hard to believe that so brilliant .a team can have gone to pieces in a sin gle season, and yet the absence of good pitching, caused principhlly by the injury to Coombs, seems to have badly handicapped ^he world's cham pions. No doubt they will come again, but that is not certain. There have been other instances where great ball teams have suddenly gone to pieces. Players are apt to become diccouragcd when things break badly for them for a couple of weeks. Last year Mack's team got a poor start, but that coulfl be traced to the fact that the team was not ready to do its best work. This year it is different, for the reason that it is doubtful if Mack has the pitchers necessary to carry a team along at the head of the procession. So far as interest In the race is con cerned present conditions are ideal, for the reason that it was generally sup posed that the conquerors of the New York Giants would make a runaway race of the present campaign. No other team was believed to have a chance, but the poor showing of the Athletics to date has given teams in other stties hope, and there will be more interest in the game as a result. A couple of weeks ago in a game played here with the Athletics Jack Coombs in jured himself and there was a row be cause Umpire Silk O'Lbughlin allowed Cy Morgan to warm up for some live minutes before taking Coombs' place. The local players insisted that Morgan come on the rubber at once and there were a lot of arguments which Anally resulted in the suspension of McBride. The other day Tom Hughes Injured him self and like Coombs had to quit the game yet there were no protests from the local players when Umpire Connelly al lowed Walker to warm up for fully five minutes before he came In to relieve Hughes. Under such circumstances it ought to be a rule that a pitcher be given time to get himself ready to pitch. Incidents such as Coombs and Hughes encountered come unexpectedly and it is unsportsman like to ask a pitcher to take up the work before he has had a chance to warm up properly. Jim Callahan gives Kid Gleason all the credit for the good showing the White Sox are making. He contends that the brilliant work of his youngsters is due entirely to the efforts of Gleason. who has been coaching them. Gleason has ever been a valuable man on a ball team, even since he quit playing, and it is sur prising that he has never been chosen to manage some major league team. He was of the greatest assistance to Bill Murray when he had charge of the Phil lies, and he is again showing to good advantage with the Wnite Sox. Cleveland folk are about convinced that the Naps have not been materially helped by the switch of management, for Davis does not seem to have helped the situation materially. On form Davis look ed like the logical man to take ? harg,"e of that team. His many years' experience under Connie Mack, whoso first lieuten ant he was for so long, seemed to fit him Ideally to manage^ ball team, though it is now being noised around that Davis misses Mack more than Mack misses him. There is a whole lot ol" difference in following instructions of a leader and framing your own plans of attack and de fense, and Davis and the Cleveland fans are learning this to their sorrow. Hank O'Day is staging a skit that has all the fans in the country wondering. His team, lowly last year, trailing the Cardinals Into the finish, is now leading the National League race with the high est percentage owned by any club in either league, says a western writer. The men are working well together. The jinx of Clark Griffith has taken a back seat, and even Larry McLean has for gotten his tendencies in the general do sire to win. But this team is not good enough to stay at the top. unless a blight hits two or three other clubs that by right shouldl precede the Rhinelanders. The pitching staff will not stand up throughout the season, although it appears fairly strong at this early stace. "Rube" Benton is the most Improved asset the club owns, and if he can hold up will be the only material factor in increasing the club? strength over last year. For the rest, the club Is' much the same. Egan is going better than last season, and the men are pulling together. But it has only one or two earmarks oC real greatness. Take a look at old New York and you will pretty nearly get a view of the league leaders at the end of the season. N. B.?This is always providing the Re? Doolne don't clean up their hoapital list.
