THE BRATTLEBORO DAILY- REFOMMER: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1920.
ATHOL WINS BY ROBBERY ROUTE - i Daylight Holdup Athletics of Game Saturday ivcs HAD WARNING OF WHAT TO EXPECT lowney Pitches Classy Ball for Ath letics, but la Unable to Offset Um pire's Manifest Determination to Help His Home Team Win.

Dispensed by Brattleboro Drug Co. and such proved to be the case for when the golden opportunity came to him in the sixth inning he made the best of it, resulting in a brace of runs for Atliol and the fame. It was a pure and. simple hold-up and robbery for with one out and a man on iirsst by virtue of a fielder's choice, the first batter being forced at second, St. John, the next batter, hit one to B. Dunlevy at second, who- gathered up the ball and attempted to tag the run ner going to second.- The runner, to avoid being tagged, ran out of the base line about four feet. Dunlevy put the ball on him, however, although the umpire claimed he did not. Whether he did or not did not matter, for the base runner ran out the prescribed zone allowed him and should have been declared out. ' Th'i3 would have been two out and onlv one on, but the decision put two on and only one out; Lowney, pitch ing for the Athletics, then proceeded to" put over two strikes on the next hitter and the way he had been pitch ing and did pitch throughout the game leaves no question in the minds of the Brattleboro fans and players that at least two of the next four balls wIipiI wprp food fair strikes, but the umpire, following the same course that he pursued all the afternoon, namely, of not calling a strike on the home team unless they offered at the ball, allowed the runner to walk ana just to be sure that they got a run repeated the same performance on the next hit ter, forcing in a run, when there should have been three out and only one on the bases. The Athletics were now so mad that they could hardly see the ball. . Tandy, the next hitter, drove one at Under wood, who lost the ball long enough to let a run in. Higgins, the next batter, was fanned because he offered at them, and Hill lifted the only chance the outfield had in the entire game to Aus tin in leftfield. These two cheap runs brought their total to three, just enough to defeat the Athletics, who had turned in 4wo earned runs by good elean hitting. Yarker scored the first one in the fourth when with two out ho singled and stole second, scoring on B, Dunlevy 's double to left field. Aus tin scored the other one in the fifth after two were out by singling to right field, stealing second and scoring on Barry's long single . to right center. Barry was thrown out trying to make two bases on the hit. " Athol got their last run, which was not needed, in the seventh on a real freak play. Shea, first up, was safe on Underwood's error. He moved up to third on two outs at first and came home on a short passed ball which was lost by Cltine and was not found until llie runner was almost home. Then ("lime in his haste could not pick up the ball, which was within a few feet of tiic plate. The one bright spot for the Athletics, however, remains in the fact that they discovered a real pitcher in Lowney of Winchester, who was hired on the spur of the moment when the team was un able' Yo "secure any' of its own known pitchers. He had the Athol team at his mercy throughout the game, allowing only four hits, and three of fhese were col lected by one player. That he passed five men should not be charged against him, for in the minds of many the passes that were issued can be charged entirely to the umpire. Only one ball outside the four hits registered was hit (Continued on Page .".) ATHLETICS TAKE INDIANS PUT ONE DECIDING GAME OVER ATHLETICS Defeat Keene A. C. 6 to 12 in Benefit for Capt.

MANY GOOD PLAYS MARK CONTEST LOCALS LACKED ; ACCUSTOMED PEP Locate Score rive Buns Before Vis itors Get Started, Although They Threaten in Second Back-stop Tails on Several Spectators. The Crescent A. C. of Keene, aug mented by two WThite Sox players, lost the deciding game of a series of three to the Athletics Sunday afternoon by a score of 6 to 2 on the Valley Fair CTounds. This was the advertised benefit game for Capt. John J. Kennedy of the Ath letics and it was only hting that the locals should take the measure of the visitors to make a perfect day. A fairly good sized crowd was on hand for the game, and while the receipts, $140, were good they were below the expectations of the management, who had hopes of much larger purse, especially as it was for so worthy a cause. Umpire Clune nearly duplicated his performance of last week when I. Dun levy shot a hot one through the box in the fourth inning, the ball missing him bv a narrow margin. During the game the back-stop fell over covering six or eight spectators, furnishing a laughing situation as they peeked out through the wire netting. Ihe score: Brattleboro. Austin, rf., F.

The Brattleboro Athletics, lacking their usual pep and playing far from regular form, had to take off their hats to the fast well-balanced team repre senting the Massasoits of Springfield, Mass., yesterday afternoon on the Val ley fair grounds, the count being 5 to 3. The visitors were on their toes every minute, playing a snappy game and taking advantage of the locals' every misplay, stretching everything for as nvany bases as possible. Moore, who pitehed Sunday, and not being in condition to go in, had to do the twirling for the locals as Lowney, who was slated to work, received a tel egram just as h was artout to leave Winchester advising him of his sister's death, making it necessary for him to leave immediately for his home in W aterbury, Conn. hue Moore pitched well, he was touched up a little more freely than usual and his support, which was strong Sunday, wobbled at tunes. Neverthe less up to the sixth inning Moore had them well under control, as only one run had been scored up to tliat time. Manning was hit just as hard as Moore, but the work of his teammates saved him several times. Dumshot was particularly strong at second, playing a deep position and spoiling at least three hits for the locals. The only things that the Athletics showed . in the way of features was a pretty catch by Y. Dunlevy in short right held, his fast work as pivot on two neat double plays and Taylor 'a mree-base hit which came m the fourth inning and started the trouble for the visitors. .
