Part 2, NEW HAVEN, .COM., FKIDAY MAY 23 190f SPORTS HERE AND ELSEWHERE SLOW AND LISTLESS CAME - WflNBYWATERBURY Nolte Knocked Out of Box in Four Innings and Re placed by Sherwood - HOLYOKE TAKES TWO Whalers Surprise Senators and Springfield White washes Orators. In the slowest and most listless ex hibition of baseball at the Prairie this season, Durant's Pets, the league lead ers, defeated New Haven 8 to 4. The New Haven nine did . not show the slightest sign of anxiety as to the result of the game, but played like an amateur team, making five errors, all of which counted much in the run maklns by Waterbury. Nolte was assigned by Hayward to do the box work. He was knocked out of the box in four and two thirds innings being replaced by Sher wood, who, although a little wild, held Waterbury down to one hit during the rest of the game. Waterbury started In the first Inning ti win the game, scoring one run. Ward hit to left field and scored on Nolte's wild throw. Thoy repeated their tally Ing in the second inning. Schincel hit over second, went to second on Bronkle's slnsle. Both men were ad vanced on McEnroe's safe bunt, and were scored on Nolte's wild throw. Ward was safe on- Havward's bad er ror of a slow grounder and LcChance Singled scoring McEnroe. The Brownies tallied one run In their half of the second. Bunyan singled and went to third on Bronkle's error, scor ing on Sherwood's single over third. In the third Inning waterbury again tallied, McNeills walking,,. went to sec end on Schincel's sacrifice and scored on McEnroe's single to left field. , In the fifth New Haven had two men cross the plate. Sherwood singled, went to third on Curtiss' long single to cen ter and scored on Barry's two-bagger Curtiss also scored on Ward's throw to third from right field. Barry attempted ta take third after stopping half way between second and third, but was nab bed by McAndrews. i Both New Haven and Waterbury scored in the seventh. In Waterbury's half of the inning McEnroe walked, fol lowed shortly by Mc Andrew. McEnroe scored on Sherwood's wild pitch. In New Haven's half Barry was hit by Bronkle and scored on Connell's timely single. The game was of a most uninterest Ing nature. Sherwood's replacing Nolte in the fifth served to offer a slight In terest as the "kid" is a great favorite with the fans. McEnroe, the Water bury shortstop, a ' New Haven boy, made a big hit here by getting three hits out of four times at the bat. and also playing an errorless game at short, New Haven's defeat is partly due to the disobeying of Hayward's rule in re gard to the playing of the fielders.' He told them all to back up the infield. Their failure to do this cost them sev eral runs. Roaring Red Rorty, the polo official, was the "Ump" and was on to his job. He made the players stop their croak ing from the benches and also pleased the fans with his decisions. The score: Waterbury. r. lb. p.o. a. e.

Holyoke, Mass., May 23. Holyoke took both games from Norwich this af ternoon, the first by the score of 3 to 1 and the second 4 to 0. The latter game was called at the end of the seventh Inning by agreement of both captains in order to allow the Norwich team to catch a train. Both games were full of brilliant plays on both sides. In the first Boucher's work was the spec ial feature, while in the second Hoff man, Cote and Crubb were the stars. Most of the locals runs in the second of the double-header were due to nine bases on balls given by Krause. The Scores: FIRST GAME. Holyoke. r. lb. p.o, a. e.

Infleld Playing: the Worst Seen There This Season. Springfield, Mass., May 23. Bridge port's infield playing this afternoon was the worst seen here this season, and Springfield had no trouble in mak ing seven runs while Miller was holding the visitors runless. Only three hits were made oft the Springfield pitcher. Tacey pitched fine ball for Bridgeport until his support became so poor that hard work by him was of no avail. The only feature was Rising's hitting, though Springfield's double plays were fast pieces of work. The score: Springfield. r. b.h. p.o. a. , e.

Chlcngo 5, New York 8. New York, May 23. 'Chicago defeated New York at the Polo Grounds to-day by a score of 5 to 2, winning two out of the series of three games. Manager McGraw had to call upon the service of his entire staff of six pitchers but he could not stave off defeat. The game was won and lost in the fifth inn ing when Mathewson was batted out of the box, Shepard making a home run with two men on bases. In all McGraw confronted the visi tors with seventeen players and the big gathering of spectators was kept on the tiptoe of exceptatlon and excite ment at every stage. There were some brilliant bits of fielding during the contest, Tinker, Devlin and Corcoran being particularly prominent. Score: IR.H.E.

Durant's Pets played errorless ball and certainly deserved the game. Barry was New Haven's chief offend er in the error-making, fumbling one easy one and allowing another to roll through his legs. If Wade had been awake he- would have gone after the ball and probably saved a run. Nolte had an off day, for he after wards said he couldn't even see the plate. His numerous wild pitches cor roborated this statement. Sherwood is certainly a favorite with the fans. His Ills were their ills yes terday, and his good fortune theirs. The "kid" accomplished a feat in the sixth Inning which was impossible for Nolte--he shut out Waterbury without a man reaching first. He also allowed only one hit in five innings. Bunyan's base running could certain ly be Improved. Harry Jope was out of the game yes terday on account of a split finger. McEnroe made a big hit in his home town, both at the bat and in the field. Three hits out of four times at bat, and a clean fielding record. Romer was sent out in left field 'in Sherwood's place and got two put-outs in succession. "Roaring Red" Rorty maue his first appearance as an umpire in the State league yesterday and was very satis factoryan unusual Incident when an umpire makes his debut, especially In this city. Rorty showed his Imperiousness by telling the players on both the New Haven and Waterbury benches to stop their coaching. Rorty also showed his experience as an acrobat by skillfully dodging several of Nolte's and Sher wood's wild ones. The Bridgeport Post says that New Haven Is slowly getting Into form and will be heard from later. When is that time coming? Yesterday's game might ehange this generous opinion. Chicago is again tied with the New York Nationals for first place. The St. ' Louis Americans had the happiness of being out of last place for two days. They dropped down out of sight again yesterday. The St. Louis Nationals reached the twenty-three lost mark Tuesday, and their hoodoo seems to have been brok en by the skiddoo mark. IN GOLF TOURNAMENT Miss Bishop Beats Miss Har mon Easily and Miss Mix Takes Honors. White Plains, May 23. Neither of the semi-final round matches for metropol itan honors proved close to-day. Miss Bishop showed that she is taking more and more kindly to the Knollwood course by administering a decisive beating jto Miss Harrison. Miss Harrison won the long fifth hole up the hill, and later one more, but she turned for home 4 down, so that It was a comparatively easy matter for Miss Bishop to win the match by 7 up and 5 to play. Another match that claimed the at tention of the gallery was between Miss Mix and Miss Milne. Miss Mix assumed a lead with a capital 5 at the long fourth hole and the 425-yard fifth up the hill was also hers in another 5. It was there that the Englewood girl brought off a clever put clear across the green. Then 2 up, Miss Mix con tinued to Improve her position by win ning the seventh and eighth holes in 4 each. They halved the ninth in 6 be cause Miss Mix took 3 puts. Her card showed 45 going out. Good enough to enable her to turn for home 4 up. Miss Milne . took 49, A beautiful re covery from the bunker enabled Miss Mix to get a halve in 5 at the tenth hole. She used a wooden spoon. The only 2 of the tournament was made by Miss Milne at the 110-yard, eleventh hole, where she laid her iron-shot stono dead. This seemed to disconcert the other, who promptly took three puts and fol lowed with three more puts on the twelfth green. ' This left Miss Milne only 2 down, and she had a great chance to reduce this still more at the thirteenth, but she missed a short put and they halved, in 6. From the next tee Miss Milne's drive hit the top of the bunker and the hole went to Miss Mix in 4 to 5, although better nutting would have enabled Miss Milne to get a half. This made Miss Mix 3 up, and when the next hole was halved In 4 the Englewood player stood dominie 3.' The match ended on the next green, where Miss Mix got a 5 after being in the bunker on her sec ond. , This made Miss Mix a winner by 4 up and 2 to play. Playing out the bye-holes, the Englewood girl gpt an 86, as against a 91 for Miss Milne. EIGHT PLAYERS LEFT. Finals In Men's Metropolitan Golf Tour- nament To-day. New York, May 23.

Demand Made at Meeting; of State . ' League. , Hartford, May 23. A meeting of the directors of the Connecticut Baseball League was held here to-night to take action on the protest of Manager Clar kin of the Hartford, team who claimed that he had been treated unfairly in a game with Norwich, by Umpire Bligh. The game in question was played on May 10, and was decided in favor of Norwich. The directors to-night with President Tracy in the chair heard the evidence of Managers Clarkin of Hart ford and Soffel of Norwich, and also read a letter from Umpire Bligh stat ing his side of the case. It is expect ed that President Tracy will make known the finding in five days arid from that finding by the president either club may1 appeal to the full board. It was also decided to enforce the rule adopted last year that on Satur days ladles should be charged admis sion to the game. Another matter decided was that each manager shall furnish six bails to begin a game three new ones and three in good condition. All of the umpires were present and made a demand for an increase in sal aries, amounting to $12 for double headers, and $4 for rainy days. Three of the directors were not present when this matter came up and It was decided to take it up later. The sense of the meeting, however, was that the amounts asked were too large and it is thought the matter may be adjusted by allowing $11 for double-headers, $8 for single games and $3.50 for rainy days. New Haven and New London were not represented. GOLF AT COUNTRY CXUB. Miss Carrinirton Detents Miss Gaylord - Miss Hart Wins Hnndlcnp.
