THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, MONDAY MORNING, XTOTTST T7, 1911 GIANTS -WHITE SOX WORLD TOUR PART TWO MONDAY AND TUESDAY " i ' i HiAJUna uLUolNb MIAMI MAKES OF HUES tThis Nature-faking Deed " Was Accomplished on a "Phoenix Ball Lot by Bril liant Pase -Running and Heavv Hits ATHLETICS AND GIANTS HAVE ALREADY WON RACE; THE FANS DON'T LIKE THIS By ."SCOOP." . If you add up all the games that Mesa and Miami have played each other this sewsoa and divide by two, you will get the number each has won. For Miami j descended upon Husky McOowan yes- j tor e'en and. made it look us though it were to wonder how in the Sam Hill the risitors came to drop the three first games on the south side. While the Miners were soaking Mc flowan continuously ateo all the time, Ramsey, he ot the perfect Greek pro ii and the vicious breaking ball, was .ausing the Mesaites to flub their nicks about futilely. Take away Ramsey, and the result wouhl have baen much the same, for fhe large and acheing void back of Ifosa'a plate caused the wise visitors to hike about nicely on bases. Just as a matter of course, Ramos the Mexi can third baseman took advantage of his four singles to flit about the sacks. He sole three of them. In fact Ramos was n sort of a dazzling light. He sac rificed once on a perfect bunt; beat another bunt to first, then stole sec ond and third, and at other odd times occupied himself by acquiring three other safe hits and some certain assists in which no errors were strung. Yes, Tans and fannettes, Ramos made up for casting the ten inning opener into the lap of Mesa. Miami returned to Miami last night, and probably took a large quantity of Salt River valley currency with 'em. McGowan was a swell three-inning pitcher. Ho blanked Miami with only .ne little, miserable hit But hear ye what befell him after that. In the fourth, with two down, Tay- W flied safe into center. Ramos' Funart single, over second placed him on third. Then Ramos did a fit and prop er thing. He broke for second. Shum way heaved to Bond which was bad. Fend heaved to Barrett, which was worse. Barrett tried to outsprint Ramos on the path, and in concen trating his attention on the important nnt he was dead set on making, per mitted TaylOB. to dash home. What matter it if Barrett did finally land I'ajnos on a ehort toss to Bond? "Bonehead," yelled the stands. Xext frame, Stanley jabbed a warm one at Barrett, who was excused an wir, only because it was a warm one. Sherman drew a walk and Stan pil fered third, his mate making second on the deal.' Then Ramsey proceeded to shove 'em both across with a mighty well placed single in the right field. Oh, be patient! Whenthe time comes, I will tell you how Mesa scored also how many. Xext frame, little Dodge muffed a long high fly and Boland was safe on second by reason of the throw in. He men atoVe third a pastime Miami was finding both simple and enjoyable. Ramos then laid a neat bunt down down toward Williams, and was yards stheatl of it into Bond station. Boland naturally ambled home. Before the side retired, Ramog lit into second well ahead of Shumway's peg, and then beat another one to William's corner. In the seventh, while McGowan steadied and stopped the pick handlers, Mesa gleaned a brace of tallies. Pom- eroy was. walked. Barrett flew to see on!, while a remarkable demonstration was in progress in the stand. Phoeni cians and Mesaites alike rose and be ufched the home team to win. Barton walked. Then did Williams contribute. True and fair, he smote the ball into deep center field, and all but scored behind Bart and Solly. Alas! 'Twould have taken many more such to have won. Miami dallied clear around the bat lLst in the.eighth. Boland walked, then Taylor Uioubled. Ramos singled and fthineVaVt fanned. Stanley singled and after Sherman had walked on four of McGowaji's weary lobs, they negoti-att-A a double loan on the bank each taking one base. Ramsey made a mis take ind fanned, but Miller doubled, clearinipTip all the ruck. Oddly enough tfhumway caught said Miler trying to pilferthirdl. , Tt was perfectly useless for Miami Feeee'StX - Ano PAsrea jfj I Will tt ee 1 4 -We SAe lo tyr BASEBALL HERE The Cee-eye-unts and the Athletix should sob together financially speak ing. There seems to be little question among the keen eyed as to who will divvy the, world's series coin this year. Nothing short of a. calamity can stop the Giants and the Athletics specially the latter. Many fans will be able to remem ber that these same two have met in season end battles before. Last sea son, was it not, they wrangled the point rjot to mention in 1911, and even as far back as 1905. Really, both of these teams have come to feel that the universe is out of joint if they do not chance to foregather in the Polo grounds and in Mack's headquartets alternately and annu ally. They act as though it were mere desire to mir in, and they seem to believe this effrontery should be promptly and vigorously squelched. So they spend each season in squelching. Fans, however, have ventured the opinion, that a world's series between some other teams might be refresh ing. The Giants and Athletics are able to produce a very, stirring and heated encounter, but bleacherites are intolerant of sameness, and they have iseen the two Mc's in the same roles I too many times already. The vworld series is Uncle Sam's big occasion. It is perhaps the most gala of all outdoor diversions. A great deal of coin finds new owners, even among those who never see a gama There would be yells of an noyance if the "serious" should be discontinued. But why doesn't the. operator Whoosh! It's a long steep baseball lane that has no turning. Take the local one, for instance. Here, Phoenix has been without baseball, and ailing for a matter of two weeks. ' Not even a defeat to grow wra thy about! Miami 1 and Mesa have finished dealing each other gentle haymakers. Mesa was soundly trounced twice in the same place city called Miami and now the two teams have con cluded a highly successful four-game series here.

Ramos acquired his fourth single, stole second and scored on Rhinehart'. doublej Williams had possessed him self of the ground, since McGowan was becoming dish-raggy. Well, Ernie did as well as he could. Anyway, he fanned two. Mesa staged a little rally in the ninth. Pomeroy acquired a hit a Hy der hat attached, seeing as the ball traveled up and over the fence. Then Ramsey committed the little indiscre tion of hitting Joe Bond in the ribs, and just for that, just for that, mind you, Joe scored. It took a single by Williams, which Sherman converted into a two-bagger by letting the ball roll by, to put the hefty first sacker across. Miami. AB. R. H: PO.A.E.

Phoenix on the second day at 3 p. nv We had had no trouble getting that far, but Gee! the roads were fierce. After we. had eaten a good meal yum yum brand of chicken we got three men to help us ferry the Colorado. This ferry is run by two motors No, it isn't. The motors only mote occasion ally, and the time we were trying to cross was not one of the whiles. The landing is a mighty poor one, and we had to use two long planks to get the auto on the boat. We got the car aboard after some hot work, last ing an hour in elapsed time and a year and three months by the perspiration. Buckingham, who runs the ferry', had a hard time getting the motors started, and right there, I said, "Boy, we will never see the other side of the river in the boat." We hadn't any more than got cast loose when the motors began to miss, and to heat up which was bad, as it was plenty warm anvhow. The river was running real swift, about 1:07 or 1:10, I think. Just as we got to the middle, the bally draft grounded on a sand bar and in trying to get off, we killed the motors. I vvnue an nanas tinKereu, the Ule Colorow ate and ate and ate all the sand away from our prow, and we suddenly found ourselves doing the chorus of the revised ragtime song. We were a quarter of a mile of the rail road bridge, and I hollered, "Boys, heru's where we strike a big pier and the boat goes under with its auto and a lot of human freight. But Buck worked like a deck hand, and got one motor going. We were able to drift the bark to the bank, but not at the landing. We struck almost under the railroad bridge, and I leaped ashore and heaved the line over some small trees and other nautical practices. It was just in time. For the motor stopped again, and we were in that part of the river where the current is strongest. We had landed on the same side we started from! Four hours were we on that blessed boat. We had to jim up some tall ar rangements to get ashore, and then we motored back to town. 'Nother chick en dinner! Now for the dark secret. After hearing it would be twenty-four hours before a flat car could be se cured, we got a garage man and snttck across the railroad bridge. Sunday night, we camped across the river and Monday we started at eight o'clock. Needless at 11:30. Not so bad, sixty-two miles of bad roads in three and a half hours. t We arrived in Los Angeles Monday at 2 p. m., with the speedo marking 5C1 miles. I drove it via Yuma and the distance is exactly the same that way. After driving from Los Angeles to San Diego, I have decided I would rather the race should start in San Diego. There is too much paved road between the towns, and I'm no asphalt rider. I only hope the road from San Diego to Phoenix will be in frightful condition mean desire but there will be lots of fast company in that motor' cycle race. I'm going to be some of that fast company when the starter says "Go," though I shouldn't brag about it already. o . . Standings Club - . W.
