Richmond at Petersburg;. Roanoke nt Lyurhhurg. Danville nt Norfolk. RV CCS MALBERT. Ineffective pitching, coupled with crrorf. allowed Petersburg to win the afternoon game here yesterday, before one of the largest crowns ever wit? nessing a ball game at the Broad Street lot, by the lopsided score of 14 ta l. Richmond won the morning game In Petersburg. 7 to 3. It was another of those occasions which clearly demonstrated that the Colts are sadly lacking in the flinging department. Kapp, who played sec? ond Monday, was selected to do the work, and pitted against him was Handy Andy Bruckmlller, who presents the olasa of the league when It comes to elabmen. Rapp lasted exactly four Innings, or. at least, he was allowed to remain that long by Manager Cow in. Ip that brief space, six hits, aided hy some poor playing on the part of Ezekiel. who was substituting at sec? ond, brought home five Goober tallies, lust as many as the Colts gathered in the entire game. Pierce Couldn't Help. Plorce carried the white flag to the ntre and attempted to stem the tide, but it was no use. Those Goobers were not to he stopped. They Jumped on Pierce and swatted him to the ex? tent of twelve hits. Including every kind but a home run. and added nine more tallies to the grand total. While Ineffective fielding was responsible for some of the scoring In the earlier stages, it was nothing but the hit and run In the latter stages, wich every Goober but Kellher and Bruckmiller crossing at least once, and all but Bruckmlller credited with safeties. Ooobervllle was happy, for be It known that the Appomatti came over In hordes. The Battle of the Crater was a feeble whisper compared with the noise they made as man after man with the big "P" on his shirt front crossed the rubber, adding to the tell? ing defeat administered the locals. And It happened in Richmond, which made the enjoyment superlative. Both Score In First. In the very first round of the mill Heinle Busch started the run getting. Bowen struck out. hut Booe beat an Infield tap, and with the first ball pitched started for second. George threw wide to Ezeklel, who was wait? ing to take the throw, and the semi pro allowed the ball to get away from him, and Booe. who is some runner, kept on to third. Busch was up, and ho took two g>od ones. Booe got a lead off, and wh'le Rapp was winding up started on tl.S path to the plate. He would have stolen home, but Busch, deciding to take no chances, poked the next thrown ball, even though It was a waste ball down the first base line, while Booe crossed, the visiting man? ager dying at the initial sack. KelJ her popped to Mattls and the inning was over. Richmond tied It up in the last of tho same frame. Buker walked, and stole, although Wallace stood in front of the plate, and let the last strike come 'over without attempting to aid Baker going down. McCabe beat out an Infield hit on a mighty close de? cision, advancing Baker to third. Mat? tls drove a high sacrifice fly to left, and Baker scored, McCabe reaching tcenod. Martin bowled the ball through Bruckmiller, and stole, but Dobson flew to centre, and tho Inning was over. Nothing In Second. Spencer started the second by beat? ing out an Infield hit. Stein hit to ecntre. advancing the runner to third, and took second on tho thrown-ln. Epcncor was caught at third, and Ben bow and Selvage were easy outs, so that the two hits availed nothing. For Richmond Cowan walked and Ezeklel put him on second with a sacrifice. Rapp struck, out and Baker grounded from Bowen to Kellher. The Goobers scored In tho third. Booe beat out another diamond scratch, and again stole second. Busch doubled .Continued on Third Page.)

Th6 association team had everything Its own way for six innings. Rlxey, Vir? ginia's star twirler, tunned the Orsl ten men who faced him and allowed only one hit, and that a scratch. Inj the seventh inning, however, the heat . proved too much for him and he col? lapsed, the Collegians sending seven ' men across the plate and lying the score. Four hits were made by the visitors in this session, two of them doubles by Sitterding and H. Rose. The Collegians won out in the eighth. Sitterding. the first man up, j nailed a three-bagger to right tlela. i and counted on E. Rose's timely swat I to centre. Hinchman pitched a clever game, I having thirteen strikeouts to his | credit.

San Francisco. July I.?The measured swing of Referee Welsh's arm tolling of! ihe ten seconds over tho writhing body Of Owen Moran, of England, brought victory to Ad Wolgast In the thir? teenth round of to-day's International battle for the lightweight champion? ship. It was a clean knockout, and the decisive victory was turned by the rugged strength and punishing power of the champion. night upper cuts to the stomach, followed by a left hook to tho Jaw, torced the game lime English fightor to take the count far the first time in i his eleven years in the ring. Moran ^anie up undlstressud for the unlucky thirteenth round, although it was plain lie was tiring. Wolgast met him with a well-timed rush, un4 forced his way to close quarters. Moran checken him with a left Jab, but was bai ked against tho ropes In Iiis corner. Suddenly Wolgast whipped tils right arm tree, from the clinch, and swinging from his hip. sent his glove crashing three times to the pit of Molari s stomach. Moran's face whitened and twisted with agony under the smear of blood from his cut lips Hu groped blind? ly to smother that blow, when his knees gave way and he slipped to the brown canvas that covered ihu ring. Tho champion whipped over a lefr. hook to the ipw as Moran fell, but it was not needed. Moran rolled on his side, and his legs scrambled fov ? a footing, but his mouth was open, and his eyes rolled back, and tho shouting noise brought the man to Inn deadened senses. It was several min? utes before he regained consciousness. As Wolgast turned to his corner, morn firmly planted than ever on the light? weight throne, a grin flashed across his bleeding Hps, and he plucked with his gloved hands at the American flair he. wore about his waist. In a second he was smothered In the throng of admirers who surged Into the ring, untied the battle-searred f?ag and waved Jt over Wolgust's head. Moran'.i seconds entered a claim of a foul, but the blows in question were plain? ly seen from the ringside, and tho protest was disallowed. Terrific Pace. Never for a moment during the bat? tle did the terriilc pace slacken. The American carried the right to his op? ponent from the first tap of the gong, as Moran was never abie to keep hint at long range. It was in clinches that, the cham? pion showed to beat advantage. Moran was unable to perfect a defense against the short, ripping right upper cuts. Wolgast worked to his ribs and the "loop the loop" punch, a right upper cut to the face outside his own left arm that snapped the Britisher's : head back repeatedly, and kept hia mouth bleeding from tho first round. At long range Moran clearly out? pointed tho Michigan boy, and his clever ducking and footwork extrl ? ited him from many a tight cornur. It was a battle of a clever and ex pi noticed boxer, against a tearing, ripping fighter, and tho fightor weathered the storm, with never a. sign of distress. U was a rough light from the start. As the first round opened Moran came] willingly to closo quarters, but was ir.et ?Ith a volley of short lefts t<> the face, nnd a rlsht uppercut that brought blood from his Hps. It waa the champion's round by a wide mar? gin. an<l Moran came back for tho second with Instructions to stay away. With wonderful Judgment of distance, ho slipped away from Wol? gasts vicious swings, flashing In with clean-cut lefts and rights as the cham? pion opened up. It was Moran's round, and he continued to pursue the samt tactics throughout the fight. When forced to close quarters In the third. Moran fought back viciously. They roughed It head to head. Wolga.-.', working his cignt to the face and tho body, and Moran working his left Land and forearm into Ad's chin and face, and holding the cnatnpion even. Both were bleeding when the round closed. Moran seemed to gain confi? dence as the fight progressed. Shift? ing in and out as lithe as a panther, ho landed cleanly repeatedly, through? out the fourth, fifth and sixth rounds, rocking Ad's head with hard, clean punches and making Wolgast look almost like an amateur, by the way .ho avoided his swings. His cleverness brought frequent np-. plause from the crowd, but ho never stopped Wolgast's steady advances, und Wolgast plainly was the strongor.
