Firing of Rebs Proves Too Much for Young
Knickerbocker Twider, While His Wildness
Helps in His Defeat.
j Ramming. Jamming, slamming, bang?
ing and otherwise mistreating a certain
I young man who answers when Slocum
j Is called, the Robs yesterday trampled
: all over Bill Jordan's hopes and added
i another ball game to their string o'
; victories, the finish standing i 1 to 3.
[The young man who joys in the patro
| nymlc SlOCUm will probably deny very
; emphatically that there Is nothing In a
' name, having very good reasons to
remember a certain disaster in that
same New Yorlt town.
Anyhow or anyway. It Is mostly to
Mr. Slocum that the Rebs owe the case
with Which the game was won. Bill
Jordan has a good club in the Knlckor
i bockrers from out in th.i upper reaches
of the Bronx, but is evidently sorely
* lacking in Hinging material. No hall
club can win games with such weak
! defense In the mound. When Slocum
wasn't hitting somebody on the top of
I the head, or when he wasn't making
I poor Joe Bruggy scramble through the
' mud to stop Iiis wide ones, he was ^Ic?
ing the locals an opportunity to break
' into the Joe Jackson class with the
i club.
J An Interesting feature of what must
j have been a vory tame aftsrnoon Indeed
I was tlie Influx id about mo New York
fans, here In attendance upon the Royal
Arcanum convention, who yelled long
i and lustily for the ll thamltes?that Is.
! they yelled until drowned under the
i horrifying bombardment of the R< bs.
I Still, though the pace was too Strong,
'they were loyal, and will return asaln
to-day In hope of better things.
To make the joy of the fans com?
plete, three homers were offered in
the repertoire of happenings, Neurer,
for the visitors, and Blue and Bohan
non, for the Rebs, being the heavy
hammerers. Also there was a triple
and u sextet of doubles, euch club gar
I ndring three of the extra variety. It
I was one great afternoon, even though
I Hermy McFarland had to stand up and
let Slocum lilt him three times in suc?
cession and also splash throngii heavy
seas out on the ramparts, lu fact, the
going was heavy enough to suit the
best mudders In the world, though the
Infield was fairly fast, considering the
Without wishing to rub it in, rtf.r
enee must again be made to Mr. Slo
| cum, for without the semblance "of u
I biff the Rebs drove two across the rub?
ber in the llrst frame. A pass, a sj<
I rllicc, two batsmen hit by pitched balls
I ami a couple of wild heaves Is this
young man's record for the opener,
j and In the words of a famous philoso?
pher of Honnornckor, "tin r Ida mod el it
j didn't get worse from then on." One
1 hit in the third, for Instance, netted
j two more, through the graclousncss of
[the hnrler. The four which counted In
the llfth were also directly attributable
I to his generosity, even though he
[ struck out three men In this frame.
I His (Work in this direction was clearly
I offset by walking one and hitting an?
other. On both occasions he had the
batter in the hole before he cut lOOFJ
with the wild idles.
I The real hitting of the game came
I in the seventh, alter two were down,
though a quartet of slashing drives In
the sixth netted three counts. In the
seventh a mere irille o< two doubles,
a single and Bohaniton's lift over the
wall yielded three more.
Orover Goshorn was Just ab iut as
good as he has been this season, and
I maybe a little better. Until lie was
safely in the lead ho held tin Bronx-,
men safe. A couple in the fourth, a
Ilk - number in the next, and Nourer's
homer in the last was the sum total of
counting. Note that not a bast wai
I stolen by either dub ami that the
I Rebs played a perfect fielding frame.
I Patsy Bohnnhon taking every one of
this fifteen liki tue- sterling player lie
is. while Sox Seybold. frits Hoffman
j und Hermy McKnrlSnd galloped around
