Heydler of the Na tional league has ordered the last three innings of the game replayed before the scheduled game of Sept. 4. The teams are directed to line up as nearly s* possible to the lineup of the game of July 5; to take the field a* of the first half of the seventh Inning with Stengel of the Phillies on third, and Fletcher on first and two out. This was the situation when the disputed I play took place. Wrlghtstone hit a fly | to short left, which Umpire Harrison ruled an “infield fly” automatically re ! tiring the batter.' Left Fielder Burns of the Giants, however, permitted tho ball to drop safely, then recovered It and threw to second base, Fletcher be ing declared forced out by Field Umpire McCormick. Fletcher, who was put out of the game for disputing the decision, will be permitted to take his placo in the lineup. Pr-sident Heydler deplcd the Phillies’ protest and appeal to have the entire game replayed, because at the time of the dispute the score was 6 to 0 in New -York’d favor.

Capitol Ave. - INDIANA DAILY TIMES, THURSDAY, AUGUST 19,1920. TRIBE ON WAY TO PLAY BLUES; JONES IS STAR - £. Indians Nearly Cop Twin Bill Over Saints Behind Paul’s Good Pitching. UMPS HITS HENDRICKS ST. PAUL, Aug. 19.—Jack Hendricks’s Indians finally beat the Champion Saints yesterday, when they grabbed the final game of the series, 5 to 3, after dropping Jhe first contest of the day’s double header card, 3 to 4. The Hooaler athletes packed up im mediately after the big afternoon and departed from the city latt night, their next stop being Kansas City, where they will open a series with Otto Knabe’s Blues Friday. Ail the Indians welcomed the rest today because four of them are not in the best of shape. Among the sick and injured are Smith, Zwllling, Wolf and Gossett, and with these men ailing the team is lucky to win any games. However, the Hooslers hope to swing back into consistent winning form while In the K. C. camp, and believe they wilt be back In second place when they t merge from that place. Paul Jones hurled both games yes terday, and he was simply outlucked out of the first one. He allowed the cham pions only six hits, but lust, despite tbe fact that his mates collected nine off llall. The ninth inning of the first gams was a heartbreiiker for Manager Hen dricks aud bis tribe, because In that ftame the Hooslers got a double, single and two home runs, yet got "Oly two markers. As an aftermati. to a dispute between Manager Hendricks and Field Umpire McCaflerty In that. Inning tbe umpire attacked the. Tribe boss between Somes, and it is likely that President llefeey will at least investigate. Players separated the principals be fore real damage had been done, al though Hendricks had to stand for a blow In tbe face. The atory of the ninth Inning rally in the first game that fell short follows: Covington, first up. singled to left. Uehg drove a Hjjer to right that Outfielder Rig gert made a headlong dive for. He got bis body over the ball as he fell and Um pire McCafferty ruled it a fair catch. Covington, of courae, was doubled off first brfse. Manager Hendricks and the Tribe players kicked hard over the de cision, but to no avail. Kores then drove out a home run to right center and Hen line followed It with another circuit clout over the left field fence. Schreiber then doubled, but was left when Zwllling; fanned. Truly the Indiana were outlucked in that game. Paul Jones asked to be sent back at: tho Saints in tho second contest and when given permission ho proceeded to do a good Job of beating the champions. The games sparkled with thrilling stop* ratal cat ■■lies nnd St. Paul fans probably saw more baseball during the afternoon than In any three or tour previous games. Around the A. A. WITH EDDIE ASH The Indians were forced to stage a j ninth-lining rally to cop the second j game f the day’s card at bt. Paul yes terday. The Saint* had knotted the count .n the eighth, but the Hooslers apparently wero determined that they would got ono game out of the four with the Cbum'pions, aud they made good. Everything has happened so the In t'. ans this season that possibly could happen in a ball game. Just Imagine getting all those hlta In the ninth of that first game and then falling short of winning! No wonder Manager Hen dricks bawled out the umpire. 4t any rate, the Indian* <ll •cov ered that the St. Paul groundkeeper didn’t move the short left field fence hark lu<a It tvas their turn at bat, so Henllne put one over It. Even if the Saints are far out In front, it is u swell battle for socond-place. Korfcs ha* been playing great ball since he returned to the Tribe lineup, ■ and he has been hitting, too. Rehg has played left field, center, right and second and third base at various tlhies this season. He held down sec ond yesterday. The Millers whaled the Colonels twice ; yesterday ahd returned to second place. The Brewers are coming fast and threaten to break into the first division shortly. “Our Mike" Kelly was behind the bat again for Columbus yesterday and got two bits. Ralph Shlnnera, Tribe rookte, plays much better ball on the road than he ! does at Washington park. He's over anxious when performing before the j home fans. The .Saints got only eleven hits In the two games off the association’s now “Iron man,” Paul Jones. A few seasons back Umpire Doyle at tacked Jack Hendricks and It cost him his Job. Wonder what McCafferty will get? Notables present at the Rt. Paul gams yesterduy were the crown prince of Rou manla and President-Manager Branch Rickey of the St. Louis Nationals. If the crown prince attends a few more A. A. ball games he’ll have something to talk about when lie returns to Roumanlg. He probably understands now why Yan kee boys made such scrappy soldiers. It Is believed that Branch Rickey of the Cardinals Is planning to make atx offer for Ralph Hhinnera. It was the final 1920 appearance of the Indiana in St. Paul.

CHICAGO, Aug. 19.—Those fight fans who saw Billy Mlske put in nis first day’s workout for the fight with Demp sey, Sept. 6, here yesterday came away with a regular impression. ' Most of them who spoke to me after the four-round display of boxing and wrestling told me they thought Mi3ke would put up a regular battle with the champion, and others—and they were in the minority—expressed the belief that Dempsey would beat him but only after a tough fight. Miske gave the fans a nice display, considering that he is not extending himself in the least at the present time. Mlske went two rounds of a vigorous nature w4tih the ancient but still very good Jack Blackburn, old-time light and middleweight fighter, and after that they brought out a young middleweight named Jimmy Delaney from St. Paul. Ho Is very fast and clever and kept Mlske moving every minute of the time. “They talk about me being a sick man,” Miske said scornfully, “but look a* me—l’m as big this minute as Demp sey was when he beat Willard, and feeling extra tine." Miske looks it. He weighed 194 pounds yesterday without an ounce of clothing, nnd every inch of him seems to bo ready. He looked to be almost an exact replica of Dempsey, as far as actual size is concerned. about as tall, about as broad and little" disparity can be noted. The Dempsey chest is fuller and tho Dempsey arms a bit more club-llke, but outside of this they are about the same, a corking good match. Miske was to work out here again this afternoon and tonight will go to Ben ton Harbffr, wharf a he will complete his training.
