Clark Griffith It In. a quandary today,
and hardly knows what 'to, do to set
away from the jinx which aeams to pur
bub him. 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.

DETROIT, Cept. 16. 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.

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

Johnson Gets Two-Bagger.

Backer, jnd raced around the circuit

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

VIRGINIA GLDOMY
OVER THE LOSS OF
LStar 1912 Shortstop Will
Not Return to School
: This Year.
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.
When Clark Griffith and the Nationals
were In Charlottesville for spring train
ing, the work of Douglas so Impressed
the Washington manager that he
promptly offered the boy a fancy con
tract to sign after the school schedule
was finished. Douglas refused the offer,

not desiring to play professional ball.
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.
Douxlas' home belnc in Maryland, he
felt that since he Intended to practice in
his own State, ho could bo benefited j
moro by studying law there. A new i
captain must pe chosen to succeed
Douglas. The choice will probably fall
between Catcher "Ed" Finlay and Third
Baseman Douglas Neff. Both have
played regularly for two years, but the
eddu favor Finlay to gain thla bonor.
In recognition of tho service he has ren
dered in football also, where he plays

the baseball team will not be held for
a couple of weeks.
