From the Angle of the Bug
me count m games one
each, the Barons and Hust
lers will tie up in the de
ciding game of their series this aft
ernoon. The Hustlers achieved a 1
to 0 victory over the Barons Thursday
in Anniston, while yesterday Moley's
hirelings came back strong and siaugh
; tered their International league oppo
nents by a very decisive score.
Following this game the Hustlers
will wend their way to Atlanta for a
stay of a week’s duration, after wrhich
they will jump to Roanoke, Va., for
an exhibition afTair. The Interna
tional league race does not commence
until April 21, and Johnny Ganzel has
booked a goodly number of practice
games for his corps during the mean
This spring will likely be the last
one that the Rochester aggregation
will train at Anniston. Since arriving
there nearly three weeks ago much bad
weather has been encountered, and the
practice retarded to such an extent
that the whole team is disgruntled
over the turn of affairs and are urg
ing that the place be given up as a
training ground. The players are also
discontented because there are no
amusements there to help pass the
time away with and all want to steer
clear of it next spring.
The Hustlers have been using An

four years and this is the first time
that any complaint has been made
about conditions there. Anniston was
originally selected on account of its
ideal location and up to this spring It
has fuily measured up to all require
ments. In fact, the first two years the
Rochester team trained at Anniston it
won the Rochester pennant in succes
sion and this should help to show that
Anniston is fully suitable as a site
for a training camp.

Ganzel made the first cut in his
squad yesterday, Habel, a young
catcher, being released to the Annis
ton club of the Georgia-Alabama
league. The club was so badly dis
abled by the Federal league raid that
Ganzel is holding on to all his players
in the hope of developing some of
them into class AA timber.
On that squad Is four ex-major
leaguers—McMillan. Keefe, Martin
and Schultz. McMillan formerly
played with Brooklyn In the Na

Reds, Martin with the New York
Yankees, and Schultz with the Boston

The Rochester newspaper men trav
eling with the team are all loud in
their praise of Riekwood field and also
the newspaj>cr club, in commenting
on the Baron baseball plant yesterday
they asserted that nowhere in the In
ternational circuit is there a park
that will compare with the local one.
The one in Toronto, they stated, has
a better grandstand than the Baron
home, but the playing field is much
inferior, while at Jersey City the play
ing field is superior to the local one,
but the stands are poorer.
It lias always been contended that
Riekwood field is one of the best
minor league plants In #he country,
and the fact, that in the 'International
there is no park that ranks on a par
with the local one, strengthens the

Akers and Martin Easy for
Baron Sluggers and Big
Score Is Piled Up—Barons
Start Off With Rush
By wielding the bludgeon effective
ly at opportune moments, the Barons
yesterday afternoon wiped out the de
feat sustained previously at the handp
of the Rochester International league
team in a most encouraging manner,
burying their opponents under an av
alanche of scorching base hits and
numerous counters. The final score
was 12 to 1, with Carleton Molesworth's
hopefuls gripping the long end.
“Curley” Brown and “Hank” Greg
ory worked on the firing line for the
locals and throughout the nine ses
sions held the opposing batters well in
check. Several rallies were attempt
ed by Johnny Oansel's band of ball
tossprs in a vain attempt to close up
-the gap separating them and the Bar
ons. but each time they were fore
stalled by sharp fielding and steady
pitching. Brown gave up four measley
bingles and one run during his five
innings on the mound, while Gregory
succeeded in holding the Hustlers to
only two hits In four rounds or com
Barons Hit Hard
Ganzel's offering on the mound was
Akers and Martin, a former Yankee
hurler. Neither gave the Baron slug
gers any trouble at critical junctures
and victory was comparatively easy.
The Barons touched the delivery of
Akers for five safeties and foftr count
ers in four innings, and romped on
Martin, who essayed to the task of
trying to check the Barons during the
last five innings, for a total of eight
runs and six juicy drives, one or which
was a three-baggei and another duo
keystone clouts.
The fact that Martin was an ex-big
leaguer and well trained in the art of
issuing foolers to eager minor league
batsmen did not strike terror in the
hearts of the Barons and they w'ent after
him from the time he stepped on the
mound in the fifth inning until the very
end. In a whole-hearted manner.
With the sting of Thursday's defeat
in their minds. Moley's henchmen did
rot waste any time in getting to work,
but In the opening session jumped on
Mr. Akers t>et first and before the smoke
of battle ascended rt-anaged to shove
four runs across the p'lflte.

Marcan’s Hitting A Feature
The diminutive Baron second s acker. who led the Barons al the hat
in the game against Rochester yesterday, getting three hits and three
runs in four times up Marcan also fielded in good form.
Marcan Leads Assault
Marcan. leading off for the locals,
slapped the pellet to *eft field for one
hag, starling the Baronial assault
Covington folowed with a clout into right
field, which eluded Priest and went for
three hags, ^arcan in the meantime
romping across with the Initial score of
the game. The new Baron first-sacker
a>o scored shortly after on a drive by
A hot drive to left by TTerndon enabled
i ete Knisely to race hoiwe with the third
.un, the fourth being scored a little
later by Herndon on a hit into center
off Wallace's bat.
Content with this lead the Barons
played sedately along until the fifth, when
- Pitcher Martin was ushered out on the
1 firing line by tin* Rochester leader, and
then they decided to give the debuting
, lllnger a lesson and also make victory
J surer ami more decisive. Marcan, as in
the first round, led thw attack upon Mar
1 tin's delivery.
The diminutive keystone guardian suc
r-cfded in persuading the Rochester heav
. er out of a base on bails and then the
liil was off. On an Infield out Marcan
1 advanced to second and perched there
while Magee struck out. With two down
the outlook was far *~om roseate, but
the Barons were of a different mind.
Knisely w-as hit on the nip by Martin,
while Herndon landed safe on first when
little Tommy McMillan let his hot ground
■ er get away. With men occupying all
. the hassocks, Martin ascended into the
, air for a bird's-eye view of Birmingham
’ and walked Edwards, forcing in Mar
Wallace Cause of Downfall
Then the hopes of the Hustler heaver
of pulling safely out of the hole was
blasted by a local receiver answering
to tlie cognomen of Wallace. The afore
said Baron took kindly to the delivery
of the opposing moundsman and after
fouling off a couple drove the ball in
far left for three hags, bringing in
Knisely, Herndon and Edwards.
When McMillan erred for the second
time that inning by letting Ellam’s
drive ooze out of his hands, Wallace
ambled across the plate for the fifth
and final run of the inning. McBride,
batting for Curley Brown, grounded out
lo McMillan for the third out.
Following this feast the Barons
rested for two more innings and then
in the eighth came to life again and
garnered three more counters for good
With two down, Frank Gregory land
ed on the ball for two bags, coming
home on a single into right by Mar
ian. A drive to left field by Covington
brought the second baseman home,
while another two-base clout by Ma
gee enabled the farmer Brow’n to ne
gotiate passage across the platter.
The Hustlers, or rather the "Idlers,”
garnered their lone tally in the fourth
when Breen, after reaching first on four
balls, scampered home on hits by Bar
row's and Smith.
