It U bad enoughUo have men out of the came with Injuries, but when the all-powerful Ban Johnson is ex pected" to rob the team of another man by suspension, Grlfflth'israt a loss to know how to shift .his men. ,aandll -is little better today. His sprained wrist will probably keep him out of the line-up for a day or ao. al though he may start In the same to morrow. Kid Foster is on the sick list. A'fth can hardly walk, and the little flyer. Zeb Milan, is nursing his Injuries. John Henry is mending slowly and play got Into the games at the end f'f the week. Griffith is up agalpst it n another way, as his possible sub stitute for first, Herman Sohaefer, is out on suspension. Were John Henry able to catch, either he or Alva Wil liams could take the first basing for a while until "Chick" Gandll get Into the line-up. Moeller at First. Danny Moeller will have to go in at flrst tomorrow if "Chick" Gandll is unable to work. Frank Laporte is the wily regular in the inlield, as Ray Mor gan was in at short yesterday when peorge McBride was chased oft the field nnd Bill Kenworthy was placed at third iwhen Eddie Foster wrenched his ankle. This isn't all. Grift is momentarily expecting a telegram to the effect that George McBride is laid off on account of dilatory tactics in taking his time in walking oft the field yesterday when ordered off by Umpire Tommy Connolly. ,Georgo was somewhat hufty and argued too long with Tommy, and after talking the subject over Connolly thought the Nationals' leader was a bit too strong In his talk. After being waved off Mao took all kinds of time getting to tho dug-out and Grift is expecting to suffer for this, too. All told, injuries and sus pensions have shot the team to pieces, the pitchers only being able to take their regular positions and turns on the mound. Griff at Cincinnati. Grift is at Cincinnati today with the baseball moguls In the grand grab for the minor leaguers for whom the mag nates have put in a draft. Griff hopes to be able to land a couple of good pitchers and possibly an outfielder, al though little hope Is held out that there are players available or worth a trial. BIG LEAGUE GAMES.

With a strange looking line-up, depleted by Injuries and banishments at the hands of Ban John son, and his awful umpires, the Na tionals grabbed the final gamo from the Tigers, 6 to 3. Owing to the dark ness the game was called in the eighth. Until the seventh, the Nationals play ed ludicrous baseball, but they made up for It In that session, pounding Troy and Wlllett for all their six runs. George McBride was banished by Lm plre Connolly, and may draw a suspen sion. Gandll and Foster were Injured, and when tho battle ended, Morgan was at short, Moeller at first, Kenworthy on third, and Moran In right. The young sters had plenty of pepper though, and did good work. Jennings tried out another of his fall crop of 1912 in Bobby Troy, who has been making records all season for Ad rian, In the Southern Michigan League. He swung the first ball for a strike on Danny Moeller, and great applause resulted. However, Dan waited him out for a walk, and Immediately stole. Then a bit of bush play spoiled the Na tionals' hopes of seeing their leaders tally. Corridon Shows Gray Matter. Foster bounced to Corridon, who, feinting a peg to first, ran Moeller down. Foster bad strayed too far from first, and was run down on his way to second. Brainy work for Corridon and a sleepy performance by the soulmates, Moeller and Foster. MJlan banged a single to center and wrenched his ankle when he stole sec ond. His sore member slowed him up, and he died at the plate when Gandll singled to left. With two gone Crawford laid down a bunt which Johnson hurled to right field. Sam rushed around to third on the hurl. However, McBride closed the frame by shooting Cobb'B bounce to Gandll. Laporte slapped a single to right cen ter to open the second, advancing on fihanks' perfect sacrifice to Troy. Again Corridon nailed a runner when he selxed McBrlde's high bounder and spiked Laporte madly dashing for third. Williams' easy roller to Bush spelled five. Gandll had injured his wrist trying to stop Johnson's wild throw and left the game. Moeller covering the cush ion and Kenworthy going to right. Shanks made a fine running catch of Veach's fly close to the line. Laporte tossed out Louden, but Kddie Onslow singled, only to fall a victim of Wil liams and McBride when lit ti tU to steal. Foster does Sightseeing ,..m u suik ... i.m.u run singica hq avotc unuer in mrociauo m I I peg from Jack Onslow. He, too, wrenched his ankle, and so could only go to third when Cobb fumbled Milan's single. Milan was caught off first and run down with Foster standing like a statue watching it all. Ray Morgan replaced Foster in the field, the midget toddling off to the clubhouso to have Mike Martin attend him. Kenworthy beat out a slow one to Corrldon in tho fourth, but nhoucd he was another sufferer from base-runners' insanity by letting Jack Onslow oatcli him off the bag with a snap peg. La porte skied to Vcach. but Sliankn walked and stole before Bush tossed out McBride. The fans were all laughing at the painful baserunnlng of tho Na tionals, who scored nothing in four frames, although making bIx hits, steal ing fivo 'bases, and getting two free tickets. The Jungaleers finally took advan tage of the bush baseball being shown by the Griffnven and crossed tho plate In the fourth. Corridon doubled to the bleachers in light. Crawford drove a sharp single to center, but "Rippy" "Wil liams let Milan's perfect peg roll to the stand, and Corridon scored. Give Griffmen the Laugh. Johnson steamed up and breezed Cobb and Veach. However, Williams dropped tho third ono on Vcach, who reached first while the backstop was sitting in the mud near the stand. McBride grab bed Louden's roller near the bag and made It a double play with a peg to Moeller. Such ludicrous baseball had not been Seen here for agea, and the tans were openly Jeering at the GrlfT men, who needed skid chains to keep their feet on the raln-soakcd turf. Another shower threatened when the Tigers went to bat In the fifth, and Johnson's teriffc speed was too much in the gathering gloom. Both Onslow s and young Troy faded away by the fan route on twelve pitched balls. That was sienar pitching and the big fellow was given a hand. "With one down In the sixth Ken worthy was hit by a pitched ball and stole a Laporto whiffed. He got no farther, though for Shanks rolled, to Corridon. Troy had horsesnoe.s hung all over him. "Donle" Bush tripled to the bleachers an a playful starter in t'i; last half of the sixth. Corridon fanned, but Crawford'- savage single to centei brought- Bush across Laporte took Cobb's bounce, tagged Crawford, and got th Georgia Peach by an e.,elasli at first Johnson Gets Two-Bagger. After McBriAo has perished on his bunt to Corridon, 'Williams beat out a hot ono to the correl-thatchcd third Backer, jnd raced around the circuit on Johnson's great drive to rlMit for two bases Jack Onslow kicked on some of Connolly's vile decisions on strikes, and was exiled, Kocher taking his place Moeller crashed a single to enter, putting Johnson on third. Dan then stol. second, Johnson died at the Olate on Morgan's little roller to tne ir repressible Corridon. Milan Mngled to center, scoring Moel ler. Cobb's toss to third got away :rom Corridon, rolling into the Tiger coop Morgan scoring, and Milan reaching third. Wlllett replaced Troy, and when he started warming up in the box Mc Bride complained so atrongly that he was banished by "Gunboat" Connolly Kenwoi thy singled to Bhort, scoring Milan, and promptly stole. Ho scored on Laporte's single, and shanks' single sent Laporte over the pan with tho sixth tallj. Moran, hitting for Mc Bride, closed the attack with a strike out. A Recruit Line-Up. Two outfielders were In the Nationals' Infield when the Tigers went to bat. Kenworthy held down third and Moeller guarded first Morgan slid over to Mc Bride's place.

CHARLOTTESVILLE. Va., Sept. 16. Malcolm Douglas, captain-elect of the Virginia baseball team, will not return to school this year. This was tho news that leaked out in the campus today and disheartened every follower of Virginia athletics. "Little Dug," as he Is known, has been the star shortstop of tho Orange and Bluo for the past two seasons, and last spring was rewarded for his sensa tional playing and faithful work by belnc chosen unanimously to lead the baseball team the coming season.

Douglas and Eppa Rlxey were easily the stars of the university team, piloting the Virginians through one of their most successful seasons. "Dug" will be sorely missed. He ranks as one of the greatest shortstops who ever played on Lambeth Field In a Vlrgnla uniform. He still has two mote years of college eligibility, but decided recently to cast his fortunes with tho University or Maryland. At this latter institution he will continue a course In law started at Virginia.
