NEW YORK, May 2.—Only the Twenty-five hundred fans, enthused by the Chicks' victory over Allentown tm Wednesday cheered them on to vic tory in the Tri-State opening here yesterday afternoon, by the tight score Of 1 to 0. Whether the presence of "Governor Charles R Miller. Mayor Howell or President extra Harrison W. Charles F. Carpenter was an Incentive is not known. The game the Chicks won was one of those games that belong to either team until the last man Is down, and will go down as one of the fastest games ever play ed in any ho me tow n on an opening day. Gov Of course, there were frills. Miller, not forgetting the days ernor of his youth when he played ball on the lots, threw the ball into the field, t ,„which was the signal to Craven to start things, and the game was on, , Rawnsley's Band struck up that fa miliar song. ''Take Me Out , Ball Game," and the fans caught tip • the air. and rising to fhclr veiled for Brown to get busy. Kerr's prodigy from Baltimore looked , good to win. although he was pitch-J to the feet, Doc Ing his first scheduled Tri-State Against him was pitted Hor game. bey, a Tri-Slate veteran who on more than one occasion has stood up the Chicks. But when the clouds rolled he was a badly beaten pitcher. away His team mates drew only three singles off Brown, while Jimmy Jack son's players were batting Horsey to all corners. The only extra base hit came from McKenna's hat in sixth Inning, while Jackson was on ^"second. Up until this time the teams > had played an uphill game, with the * pitchers working in something like a * battle, with Brown outclassing his '■f opponent. This time the pitchers tC broke even on the strike-out route, J but Horsey, despite his splendid con * troi. walked four men, while Brown $ walked only two. ; McKenna's drive in the sixth in •C Ding down the left field line, for two w bags, while Jackson was on second, f won the game. Up until this time £ the Chicks had been unable to send ÿ « man across, although they had U splendid opportunities in both the first Il and the fifth innings They seemed 5 to think that thew coudd win in the £ sixth inning, and sure eough, they i did C Although the game was anybody's * until the last, Allentown did not seem T able to pull it their way. Their Mûr ir ry. Cannell and Sheckard combina it tion fell when they had a chance to a score in the fifth inning. S There was no spectacular fielding p The game was one of those tight ones £ that gives only infieldcrs the chance the £ to show their mettle and the only error that crept in was by Sharpe, who afterwards redeemed himself by accepting six other chances and tear ing off a sharp single into right field. A* Jimmy Jackson got under one dtffi »cult drive from Scheekani's but while »»he fans held their hearts in their »throats. Tony Marhefka got every «thing that came hia way. j There was a regular summer crowd Î to cheer the Chicks off on get-a way my. and when the hand struck up those all inspiring unes, the fans began to shell toats and hats and get down to business with all the vim that they would ahow In the middle Ä of July S More than two hundred women at »tended the game, and they rooted for » , * lp *' ome club and most of them show j ed great disgust at the umpiring when v some home man took three healthy swings and was called out. Next to the daring of the baserun-1 ners was the man who wore a straw hat. On Is way through the bleachers he was cheered and Jeered at as much as the fans cheered or jeered at any thing. but It never fazed the old boy, and he took his seat with great dignity and was seen roaring will» the rest of the bunch Following Is the story of the game In detail: I FIRST INNING.
