LUSSIER After making tl»e “weak sisters*’ of the league eat out of his hand for seven innings, the Gulls jumped on Ar thur Johnson in the eighth and, mad dened with wild thoughts of victoryv drove the Swedish prince from the ho* In the ninth, but fell just one run short of winning because Dick Robert son topped the ambitious rally by pitching only one hall on whleli “Dutch” Charlie Schmidt grounded out. The score was f» to 4. As on the day previous, the ninth vas a thriller. It started with the Gulls two runs behind. Carl Flick opened the session with a single to right and Sloan, who was having an off day in the field, juggled the ball, allowing Flick to reach second. Burke conveniently flied out to Cecil Coombs, hut Clayton Perry lifted a high In field fly to Lindsay, who inglorious ly muffed it and Baronial affairs as sumed a dubious outlook. Calhoun grounded to Ellam, who threw to Clark, forcing Perry, but Clark was unable to get the ball to Carroll fast enough to complete a double play. Dobard Hits a Double With two out and two on bases it locked like an easy victory for the Barons, especially as Dobard, a weak hitter, was up. However, Dobard spilled the beans by sending a scream ing double over Lindsay’s head, which scored Flick and Calhoun on third. At this point Manager Molesworth dis played excellent judgment by retiring Johnson to the cooler as the big Swede was evidently upset by the liberties the Gulls were taking with his slants. With Calhoun on third, Dobard on second and Manager Charlie Schmidt, always a dangerous hitter, up Dick Robertson, the relief pitcher, faced a difficult task. The diminutive spit beller consulted with his intield and, after waving the outfielders back, pre pared to deliver the ball. There was a short wind-up an*1 a red-sleeved aim swished forward out of which shot the white pellet straight and true for the plate. There Schmidt squatted and as the ball came by he swung but just cPpped the top of it and the pill rolled slowly toward the pitcher’s box. Rob ertson picked it up and dropped it. Without losing his temper Robbie picked up the hall and calmly threw it to Carroll for the final out and vic tory for the Barons. The other runs made by the Gulls were scored in the first and eighth. In the first Northen lifted a high fly to right and Sloan muffed it. For some strange reason the official scoier charged Sloan with an error for this. On Miller’s sacrifice Northen went to third and scored on Burke’s triple. Johnson Pitches Great Ball Johnson pitched masterly ball until the eighth when, with one out, Schmidt singled and Pitcher Karr hit a home run along the groove. As for the Baronial runs, they were all made in the first on five hits, In cluding a triple by Jack W’allace which scored three runs. Carroll opened the first by singling to left. Magee grounded out, advanc ing Carroll. Coombs singled to center, scoring Carroll. Sloan singled to cen ter. Lindsay singled to right, scoring Coombs. Ellam walked, filling the bases, and Wallace tripled to deep left, cleaning the bases. Johnson ended the session by fanning. After the first Pitcher Benny Karr Barbecued Lunch With butter and side I fT _ dish . IOC Daisy Barbecue 1715 3d Ave. In Ordering Goods Please Mention THE AGE-HERALD HAS STRENGTHENED BARONS - - ‘ j ' CECIL COOMBS Sometimes known under the cognomen of "hold Cecil,” which thus far has not proved a handicap, as Coombs is batting and fielding in grand shape. Cecil Coombs following the training trip at Orlando was designated by Manager Molesworth to decorate the bench as a utility man. However, Coombsie has proved a mighty poor decoration, for through injuries and other things he has played in nearly four-fifths of the games and proved of great value to the team. <’oombs is a quiet forceful-chap of excellent personal habits and is one of the most popular men with his mates and with the fans. Lord Cecil, old chap pie—the top of the morning to you. pitched invincible ball and the Barons could not touch his delivery with a plank. In the eighth Karr fanned "Jeems” Magee on three consecutive called strikes and then pitched two more on Coombs before a ball was called. In the field the work of Roy El lam, Dannie Clark and Cecil Coombs featured for the Barons as well as the hitting of Carroll, Sloan and Wal lace. The feature for the Gulls was that they played errorless ball. This afternoon the Barons meet the Memphis Chicks in a double header. The first game will start at 2:15 o'clock.

It will be remembered that it was on the last trip of Memphis to this city that Messrs. Roth and Stewart departed from our midst. At that time the Chickasaws did not much figure in the rare, hut the presence of Roth and Stewart almost Im mediately made them pennant contenders nnd Brisco Lord's hirelings soon passed and distanced the Barons. However, the Barons are now closing up the gap rap idly and before the series of six games which starts this afternoon is terminated somebody is going to get hurt in per centage. Another double header will l>e played with the Momphil on Saturday nnd some of the best baseball In the’ Southern league will he seen at Rick wood Field the remainder of the week. Fans, 'lake Notice Are the Birmingham farts unapprecia tive? This was thd question asked yester day and it was answered that while the local fans might not ho unappreciative they were certainly indifferent this sea son over the consistent good work of the Barons. The Birmingham club this season has been fighting around the fop since the first few weeks of April. The Barons are the champions of the Southern league. They won another championship only two years ago and have not fallen belotv third place in five yeahs. The Barons are out playing grand ball every day. There are no stars on the team with the exception of Hoy Ellam, hut the team plays together In an ag gressive winning way. On the road no loam is more feared than Molesworth’s blustering Barons. And the fans should appreciate this. They should appreciate that the Barons are now in the midst of a sensational pen nant fight. They should appreciate that the race in the Southern league this season is closer and more exciting than in several seasons past. And better still, the fans should ap preciate and remember that Birmingham Ims another winning ball team—and they should iloek out to Kirkwood Field every day to encourage the boys. Bets pull for another winning sprint for the pennant. R. F. L. PRESIDENT GILMORE SUSPENDS F.
