MICHAELS, 16-4 The Colonials walloped the Gary St. Michaels in a ono-slded game of ball at Morris Park last Sunday by Then came Frank Simon, the clean up man, and gets the neatest home hun seen at Morris Park for many a day, this making the game 4 to L kind of took the heart out of the Gary boys, but much credit must be given the Gary pitcher and catcher who worked like demons to hold their team together but to no avail. The batting honors for the day go to Frank Simon. Meyers, Babe Simon, Kennedy, Bakalar, Babin, getting four and five hits each. In fact, the team in general hit well, all doing their bit at the right time, Bakalar, being a hot weather man was a little lose at times, but when he got busy he made things pretty hot for the Gary nine. "Wallie Hess, getting a great of fer from Lowell. Ind., has left the Colonials. The boys missed "WalUe i Sunday, but his place was well tak- ' en care of by Homer Hudson, the ; fM v.fftran TVi nlrtr tHI folllmf I gets, the better he looks. This be ing his first game in two years, he sure showed up as if. In mid-season form. Homr will be the regular back-stop for the Colonials from now on. The fielding honors go to Ed Bloom, who sure knocks them down in great fashion, as also does Babe Simon. Meyers, playing ils first game at third, did well fo rthe first time but needs some kinks taken out ef his system. Oh. give him 4 chance, he'll limber up. The outfield In Kennedy, Simon and Barman looks just like the old Slegel. Schul te and Sheckard .combination of fly chasers, unbeatable and never miss. The mannager announced this team as the best that opposed the Colonials this year. Sorry, but to hear these fellows talk at league meetings a person would think they were primed for the big show. Next Sunday the Colonials go to Gary to play the Umpleby's at Gleason Park. Here's hoping this will be a good game. Tickets are for sale at the Colonial Sporting Goods Store. By THOMAS L. CUMMJSKEY NEW YORK. May 17. BUI Bren nan knocked out Jim Tracey, Aus tralian heavyweight champion. In the eighth round of a scheduled 15 round'bout In Madison Square Gar den last night.. The elongated bat tler from the antipodes essayed too much against I.eo Flynn's warhorse in his American debut. Brennan cracked Tracy full on the jaw in the sixth round with his left and the man ambitious, to meet Dempsey went down. He got up and ran into a hurricane of blows. He took them gamely. The seventh saw him still stopping them, and Brennan arm-weary from wallop ing. In the eighth Brennan maneuver ed Tracy Into a corner and pro ceeded to hammer his head off and shake up his midsection. After one minute and thirty-eight seconds the strength of Tracy gave out and down he went for good. Tracy was game to the core and the crowd gave him a great ovation for his stand against the more ex perienced slugger. The trouble with Tracy was that he was too ambi tious In a strange heath. Bill Bren nan Is a tough one for most any scrapper to tackle. The Australian's pride bit off more than he could swallow. was injured when he fell Into the Cardinal dugout, yesterday left the hospital and accompanied his team to Cincinnati. ' At the hospital it was said Rapp's injuries were not as serious as first reported.
