The Giants copped the first game from the Cardi nals yesterday, and that was their eleventh straight victory, ten of these wins having been gathered In on the j road. They put up a great fight, an uphill fight, behind recruit Maxwell, in the second game, but could not over j come the Cardinals. I Wilbert Robinson, the veteran catcher, is nelng idolized now by Newr York fans, for McGraw gives him all credit for developing Marquard. Robie has been invited to finish the season at the Giants’ expense, and McGraw even contemplates using Faust, his human good-luck charm, to pitch against the Cubs, with Robie patch ing and McGraw playing in the infield.

He has won two In a row for "Cheerful Charley." -O Larry Doyle continues to slug the ball. He added another homer and triple to his extra base swats yester day. —O Maybe the Giants didn't steal yester day. There were fourteen cases of petit larceny.

He only fanned nine Browns and allowed but eight scattered hits Q - O’Brien pitched for the Bed Sox against Detroit yesterday and lost to George Mullln, 2 to 1.

ISevvark, Academy Held its second football practise of the season Eit the academy field yesterday aiid practically all who were out the day previous were dVi hand. The material this season Is not as good as in former years, as several of the play ers who are available cannot play, ow ing to their parents’ refusal. This puts Coach Maroney under a big handicap. A team this season must be developed from new material, with the exception of a few men. Captain Kellogg, one of the stars In the halfback position last year, was IWO-MLE TITLE ! RACE CARDED FOR SUNDAY AT TRACK A two-mile championship, two-mile tandem handicap mid a three-mile pro handicap are the features of the race meet a* the Velodrome Sunday. There will be four other races on the hill. The other events aro a two-mile pro Invitation, two-mile novice, half-mile amateur open and a two-mile amateur open. The two-mile ehampionsh’o is to br run in heats, with two semi-finals. Manager John M. Chapman is afraid to start the entire field of proa in one heat, for fear of another big smash like the tumble that mowed down the good men in the ten-mile open Wednesday evening. The race will be graced by several pacemakers, and will he faster than the last ttyO'mUe cham pionship, which was won by Jackie Clarke* and was run in one heat with lap money. The Velodrome manage ment cannot afford to hxve any of the stars injured and put out of the game for good. Bike riders are scarce, and they come high, too. The riders who were injured In the spill in th» ten-; mile open aro all praV/eally well now and as good as evsr There were no bones broken, and the worst any riders suffered was a loss of skin. Jackie Clarke, Walter DeMara and Alfred Goullet were skinned up considerably, but they were all around yesterday, and, outside of a little stiffness, they wore all right. They will start train ing again today, and a good workcut will drive out the stiffness and sore ness caused by the spVl. Jackie Clarke was riding in grand form Wednesday, and the little fellow feels sure that he would havo won the race had the spill not occurred. Tho rest the “Rocket” took a week ago has done him a lot of good, and he Is in the form he dlspktyed in July, when he won nine out of ten races in which he started. Jackie will try to put one over on the champion In the two-mile championship Sunday, and, if the ra- e is run as fast as Manager Chapman promises, little Jackie is the one best bet.
