Much to the sorrow of a certain
crowd of Cubans, the Pacers, Perth
Amboy's representatives in the At
lantic League, copped a double head
er at the Amusement Park grounds
yesterday afternoon. They walloped
the Long Branch aggregation by a
score of 3 to 1 in the first game and
shut them out, 5 to 0, in the second
contest, which was of seven innings'
duration. The home club played flee
ball and once they had the "goats"
of the Cubans, the going was easy.
At one stage of the game a Cuban
.pitcher became so wild that he
pitched a ball fully ten feet over the
batsman's head and it nearly touched
the flag staff on the grand stand.

lîesults Yesterday.
The victories were two of eight
ill the last ten games. Both Spring
man and Clifford pitched superb ball.
Indications are that if the Pacers
keep traveling as tney have of late
they will finish in the first division,
and perhaps third, this despite the
fact that the league season will ter
minate next Monday. The local crew
will play out of town all this week
and will return for a double header
with Middletown here Sunday. The
Pacer-St. Anthony contest cannot be
staged until a week later, Septem
ber 13, because Middletown insists
in having the provisions of the
schedule fulfilled.
Yesterday's losses were hard ones
to the Cubans in view of the fact
that they are striving with every ef
fort to clinch the league pennant
again this year. Springman had lit
tle mercy for them in the first event.
He allowed them but six widely scat
tered hits and the only run they se
cured was a homer from Viola's bat
in the eighth. The visitors' opening
looked dangerous to the Pacer ag
gregation. Calvo reached first when
Shanlcey dropped the ball from Shu
felt's throw. Hungo sacrificed and
Viola was passed. Padron flew out
to Ruddy and Horuanach grounded
out, Shufelt to Shankey. After Vi
ola had secured a home run with
none down in the opening of the
eighth, fans were saying "Here goes
Mr. Ball Game." Padron singled,
but died on a force hit, Shu felt to
Ruddy. Romanach got on when he
knocked one by Cummings and Bar
randa flew out to liuldy. The dan
ger was ended when Romanach was
caught off third on an attempted
squeeze play, Shankey to Cummings.
The second Inning of both games
were big ones for the Pacers. In
the first contest Meara started a bat
ting rally with a single. Hand dupli
cated the feat. Kuddy flew out to
Padron. Shuelt singled to right,
scoring Meara. Springman reached
first ou Romanach's error and Edgar
lined a sacrifice fly to Padron on
which Hand scored. Cummings then
struck out.
The Pacers collected one more in
the eighth, t'ieir last inning at bat.
Meara h:\d grounded out, Hungo to
Henriquez, when Hand doubled up
against the /ight field fence. The
ball struck about two feet from the
top and bounced back into the field.
Ruddy grounded out, Romanach to
Henriquez, but advanced Hand, and
the latter scored on Shufelt's timely
single. At this stage of the game
the Cubans were thoroughly rattled.
Barranda pitched wild two times in
succession and advanced Shufelt to
secon l and to third. He died there

The Seven Inning Game.
The further humbling of the
Cubans, who have been the league
leaders during the greater portion
of the season, made them erratic
and almost worthless as players In
the second game. They were unable
to score, no matter how hard they
tried. Acosta, who has been recog
nized as the Cubans best heaver, was
knocked from the box after a round
of work that netted five runs for the
Pacers In the second inning. Every
Amboynn was at bat in that inning
and Charley Meara, who started the
rally, was up twice. He started off
with a single. Bien reached first on
Romanach's failure to get the ball
to Henrique/.. Ruddy sacrificed,
Acosta to Henriquez. Shufelt sin
gled, scoring Meara, and he reached
second on a wild pitch. Clifford
singled, scoring Bien and Shufelt.
Edgar. Oummings and Eley singled
consecutively and Edgar was the last
to score, Cummings and Eley being
left on base, when Shankey died out
to Padron and Meara struck out.
The score:
Long Branch.

Spotswood, Sept. 1.—The Spots
wood A. C., which is the local junior
nine, made another raid on the State
Home for Boys, at Jaraesburg, Satur
day afternoon, in au effort to defeat
the llome Stars. Nothing doing!
The Home Stars walloped 'era to
the tune of 16 to 7. The S. A. C.
were re-entorced by "Brownie" Ap
pleby and "Dutch" Yalinell, two out
fielders on the local senior team. Ap
pleby and Yahnell started as the bat
tery, with the former on the mound.
It was a place unfamiliar to him, al
though he did well into the third in
ning. A colored boy came up in this
spasm, with a man on base, and lined
out a homer. This got "Brownie's"
nerve, and he and his backing took
an ascention. The Home Stars scor
ed ten runs in this one inning.
Hunn pitched the remainder of the
game. The winners have been play
ing good ball this year, as, under a
new rule of the home, two or three
able officers are playing important
ι positions on the nine. An officer
pitched, and did it well. too.
The senior nine has disbanded, so
they did not lose Saturday. Nelson
Jolly, shortstop on the senior team, j
played a good game at third base

season of the borough will bo for- :

Roosevelt, Sept. 1.—Much will be
looked for by local sport followers
from Clayton Young, who will com
pete in the 300 yard run in the :
Michelin meet at Milltown Labor1
Day. Although the distance is a
trifle farther than Young is accus
tomed to running, he thinks the ex
tra few yards will not prevent him
from becoming successful. The local
crack has ligured in some brilliant'
performances the past year. AI-,
though he did not cop lirst prize in ,
the late Keansburg event, he showed j
that he had the makings of a good '
runner and that he possessed win
ning qualities. It is claimed that if(
Walter Story, the winner, had start
ed with him on the same mark, there ,
would be a different story to tell.
Another runner from the Y. M. C.
Α., who will most likely compete at.
Milltown, is Edward Price, who is
reported to be hitting the mile pace
at 4:37. Should he be pushed a
little faster," he believes he will be
able to surprise the sporting sport- |
loving public.

Helmetta, Sept. 1:—-With the vie-'
tory Saturday last over the strong
Michelin team of the New Bruns
wick Factory League by the score oi
6 to 1, Marion Moudoker, star slab
artist of the Hehnetta club team,
completes a record never approached
by any twirler hereabouts. Y his vic
tory makes his record twenty-six
wins and but one defeat in the past
two years. He has not only faced
local teams, but lias haJ I he strong
est teams hereabouts and the best
from Trenton say he was the best
they ever faced. lie pays little at
tention to the "bull" urnished by
the teams who are defeated, but ins
record, that is local history, is the
one strong point that stands out in
bold relief. He lias never had the
benellt of a professional coach and
is employed e"ery d<w w. '.lui year in
the snuff mills of the George \V.
iis.me Company at Uns piace llaJ
not Smith made a wild li-i.-tvo over
first Saturday he would have shut
Michelin out.
Not that he has any great assort
ment of curves to baffle bis opro'i
eflts, but ills control has carried him
through many a close game whea
ihe edds were against him. V\ ith
two on and none do vn m the time
when he always shows what he has.
During his four years' pitching at
Helmetta, Mondoker nas lost Uut six
jamee. That the opposing baismen
lave always been at his mercy is
jorne out by the number of runs
«cored against liirn luring the past
,»o y tars which this record is com
piled from. Milltown Crescents,
during 1913, when thai team was
about the weakest m their History,
scored six runs and defeated Hel
metta. The reason for these runs
was the muffs of several easy Hies
and the general poor playing of ttar
The highest uuniber of runs
scored against Moudoker during
1914 was live in the game with the
lied Rosesh, of Trenton, who are the
recognized champions of the Capitol
city. Of these live scored, Donohue,
at first for Helmetta, made a wild
heave that scored three runs.
iiis tielding is also one of his
strong points and during the eleven
games of 1914 fie has a perfect av- :
urage of l.UOU per cent. No more
dangerous batsman hereabouts
faces a pitcher than Mondoker. lie
is batting at a .275 clip; not so bad
for a pitcher.
lie has just completed a local rec
ord for innings without a score being
made against him. Up to date he
lias thirty-live scoreless innings.
His fame has already extended be
yond the limits of this section and
:ie bus been called tin to do the box
tvork for New JSgypt on several oc
casions. but each time was unable
ο perform. He took part in one of
their important games this season
and a professional catcher said that
he "had the goods."
Probably his best game this year
was his victory over the Pennsyl
vania Signalmen from New York
city, who went down to a l(i to υ
score. The following are the games
pitched this season: P. R. P. Sig

summing up this slab artist, w'10

opposing batsmen, said that he lias a
