Wrangling, Bickering, and Com
plaining Mark Win Over
Brownies Yesterday.
ST. LOUIS. July 28. Today the Na
tionals have a comparatively B&fe hold
on third place, and that St. Louis is
not in the first division Is due to the
setback meted out in that thirteen In
ning game of yesterday.
While tlie game u-nt most stub
bornly fought from the outset It was
marred in the extreme by consistent,
persistent, and tiresome wrangling,
bickering and complaining, both ildes
somewhat at fault. Of course, whin
there are extra innings it 1 to be
expected that the time will stretch.
But when a contest i scheduled to
start at S..40 and tne clock shovB
6:45 at the linish. there is more than
real baseball to blame far the exten
sion. The first real row came when Grif
fith decided to take Engei out. Henry
had complained that his right hand
t-aa injured, and while he and A in
smith were exchanging places Walter
Johnson was sent out to warm up.
This seemed to peeve Connolly, but
when the move was finally made to put
Johnson in, the umpire was all over
the field trying to drive the Grlffmen
into action. They were defiant to the
point where Schaefer was chased off
the diamond, and in a later Inning he
was Joined in his exile bv Altrock who.
Connolly decreed, was altogether too
noisy, although from the stand it could
not be seen that the coaching was ex
ceeding the usual bounds. Connolly
was constantly trying to quiet com
plaints from Griffith, and finally threat
ened to eliminate the Washington man
ager. The Nationals have always been con
sidered one of the most popular teams
on the road in baseball. Yesterday they
ert Jeered.
But the fault was not entirely with
the Grin's. Before half of the game
had been played, Mitchell became so
exasperated at Connolly that he used
unconventional language to the point
where he was waived from the park.
Later the Browns attempted to ring
In a new ball on the Nationals. This
precipitated another row. In which
members of both teams Joined, and was
not ended until the umpire had thrown
the ball out of play.
Such dilatory tactics as both teams
engaged In yesterday are of the sort
that are calculated to Dnns smiles to
the faces of those who are working for
the interest of the Federal League and
other evidences of the apparent de
termination of some organized baseball
people to have the public become even
more disgusted with the present con
duct of affairs The crowd hooted and
hissed yesterday, and there was no
legitimate reason why Sportsmen's Park
should not have been cleared of the
throng long before 6 45.
A peculiar feature of the thirteen
innlng engagement was that th,e Na
tionals used three pitchers who had
worked the previous day. Joe Engei
started, was wild, and tfte usual result
followed. He donated two bases on
balls to the St. Louis cause, and when
he was forced to put It over they clout
ed It for four hits, the sum total for
the time he lerformed being three runs.
Thl number vnw" thine lin fnr th
Nationals had gotten away so well that'
they haa thrice scored In their half of
the opener.
After the Browns had caught up,
Johnson went In to relieve Engei. Dur
'ng the preliminary practice Johnson
had been chasing flies all over the out
field, as he did not expect to be callod
upon to twirl. He did not have suffi
cient time to prepare himself when he
was rushed out. and was drenched In
perspiration when lie took his place In
the center of the diamond. He got by
Ith what remained or the lirat Inning
and went through the second In good
order, but in the third he commenced
to palpably weaken, and a brace or
bases on balls, together with three hits,
gave St. Louis two tallies In the fourth.
He fairly slagged through the fifth and
sixth, and finally became so wobbly
Ayers was placed In the box.
Ayers practically duplicated his feat
of Sunday, and had he received the
proper support, extra sessions would
not have been required. The Qrlffmen
finished their half of the ninth with a
one-run lead, but when the Browns'
chance came, Connolly, against the
strenuous protests of the Waehlngton
lans. sent a batter down, claiming that
he had been nit by a pitched bait.
The runner stole, and In the attempt
to stop him at second Alnimlth threw
into center, and the man on the bag
continued to third. Then came a
bounder to McBrlde which took a wild
hop Just as It was about to be handled,
and the even count was recorded.
As Ainsmlth was the villain in the
ninth, he was the joint hero with Mc
Brlde in the thirteenth. The captain

two in the fourth. Johnson resorted to

Here's a story printed here on Speed
Elliott, well known in Washington as a.
former University of Virginia athlete,
who was lately coach at Charlottes
ville: . ,.
In the sixth Inning of the game, be
tween the Browns and Nationals, dur
ing an excltine rally bv the St. Louis
team. Speed Elliott, of Boonevllle, who
was sitting in a box, with his coat
thrown over the rail In front of him.
jumped to his feet and cheered wildly.
When he sat down as the Innlne came
to a close, and the Washington nlayers
trooped by In front of his box. he no
ticed some of his visiting cards drop

on to the ball field. He seized his
coat to stop the flight, and missed his
blllfolder containing from J10O to $130.
"Only the Washington players and
two bat boys crossed In front of that
box after my wallet.'' Elliot told a
"You don't suspect any of them, do
you?"' the policeman Inquired.
"Shucks, no." replied Elliott, "they
couldn't even steal a base. '
Roy Mitchell has usually been a most
difficult man for the Nationals to beat,
but yesterday they hopped on him In
grand fashion, at the start, and had
cused for the afternoon by the umpires
In the fourth inning.
Hamilton. hlB successor, was far more
effective, and carried the Grlffmen
alone In good fashion, considering- the
limited time he had to toss to a catch
er In the outfield, when Mitchell was
summarily dismissed. Leverenr made
his debut In the tenth, and flnUhed.
It was recalled that at Washington,
Clarence Walker, a Na:ional discard,
heaved away a game for the Browns
through a crazy heave to the plate.
Testcrday he -was a contributory cause
to the downfall of St, Louis by the mis
erable manner In which he tried for
McBrlde's triple. Had he played the
ball safe, and there were two out at
the time, he might have stopped the

Somers Said to Have Arranged
Trade of Southpaw for Hen

CLEVELAND, Ohio, July 28. Vean
Gregg Is to Join the Boston Red Sox be
foro the latter leave town tonight, ac
cording to a rumor here today. It Is
said that Gregg Is to be traded for two
Bed Sox players, probably Yerkes and
Henrlksen. Joe Lannln and Charlie
Somers, the Boston and Cleveland mag
nates, respectively, conferred at the
Cleveland A. C. last night, and are be
lieved to have reached an agreement.
George Baumgardner, the Brownies'
crack right-hander. Is expected to be ob
tained by the Naps In exchange for BUI
Carlsch and Doc Johnston. The Browns
need a seasoned backstop, and might
make an outfielder out of Doc Johnston,
If he cannot beat out Leary for the first
corner berth.
President Somers Is very much In
earnest about getting rid of those play
ers who have failed to make good with
the Naps this year. Since last ueason's
great race, the Naps have be;n torn
apart with cliques. Somers Intends to
end this state of affairs. If be has to
sell or trade every man on the team.
"Tea, I'll listen to any kind of a prop
osition that looks good to me." said
Somer.i today, "but I'm no an;!. I'm
not elvlnsr away good nlayers. The
men on my team are good players, but
they simply don't work well together.
On other teams they would shine. The
Yankees wanted Gregg, but Chance
couldn't offer equal values for him.
When going right, Gregg is the best
southpaw In either big league."
Manager Carrigan Predicts
Trouble for All Fofimen When
Joe Wood Comes Back.
CLEVELAND, Ohio, July 28. "Are we
in this race? Well, I should say we
are." smiled Bill Carrigan. leader of
the doughty Red Sox, today. "Further
more, we're getting stronger every aay,
and fully believe that Labor Day will
see us out In front. Wood's sore arm
la almost right again, and that means
rouble for the enemy, our pitcners
look like the best in the league, even

"Tex" Erwin Is Booked
For Drop to the Bushes
NEW YORK. July 3,-ilanager
Charlie Herzog, of the Cincinnati Reds,
returned Catcher Russell (Tex.) Erwin
to Brooklyn yesterday. Erwin had been
purchased upon an option during the
time that Tom Clarke was out of the
game on account of an Injury. Clarke
got back Into hfarness for Saturday's
double header at Ebbets Field after
a month Idleness, and he behr.voil to
steadily that Herzog came to the con
clusion that Erwln'n retention would
be wanton extravagance.
Now that C. II. Ebbets has Erwin
back upon his hands he doesn't know
what to do with him. Wllbert Robin
son Is well supplied with catchers in
Miller. McCarthy, and Fischer. He has
little room for Erwin owing to an al-
icady heavy roster. The FJatbush
Squire was well pleased that Tex wit
nesed yesterday s game ironi the
grandMand, but It was this catcher
that broke up a game against the Dod
gers at Cincinnati, and started them
on their present road to ruin.
Ebbets In all probability IIi -sk for
waivers on Erwin. and place him with
nonie fast minor league club where his
salarv will not suffer.
"There are a hit of big lesgue clubs
that Erwin couiu neip, said Mr. Eb
bets jesterday. "He Is not only a
good catcher, bft a fine fellow, and
I hope that he will catch on some-
here whero he can work regularly lTn
fortunately for him I have too. much
talent In this department "

DETROIT, Mich.. July 2S. "I guess
it's all over but the shouting. It's the
Mackmen again." said Manager Jen
nings today. 'T thought that Connie
would never overcome his pitching
weakness, but he has succeeded. Shaw
key, Pennock, Bush and Wyckoff are
delivering the goods along with Plank

sluggers behind them, there Is but one
solution to this .ace. The Mackmen

The Mackmen gobbled their twelfth
straight victory yesterday when they
slammed the Tiger twlrlers tn a fare-you-well.
Furthermore, the champions
were alert at all times, scoring three
runs In the opening Inning without a
semblance of a hit. Dubuc's wlldness,
coupled with errors behind him, made
this possible. Dubuc allowed two hits,
hit two men and walked three in the

triple la Ave trips to the plate. Pen
