IT JFriday, August 12, 1921 THE BRIDGEPORT TlMES Page Thirteen r 1 1 1 i ! 1 y !' 7 i t 1 ! v- ) J J" ) 1 1 ft Loftus-Kingdon Clu b Swinging Act Is Again Winner Full Dinner Pail Is In Sight With Springfield Here By GEORGE E. FIRSTBHOOK ' Brown Derby pennant stock soaring skyward with indica tions pointing toward a "bullish" period from now on until next Monday, when the McCann team will meet Springfield in five games, opening the series here today, with a double header slated in the City of Homes tomorrow. O Bridgeport widened the gap between Worcester and sec ond place yesterday by again disposing of the Brasscos, while the Worcester team was idle owing to the Red Sox Pittsfield exhibition in the latter city. It was the sixth straight victory of the B. D.'s. O ; Big Cleanup in Sight On form the Derbies should make a big cleanup in the series with Flynn's Ponies. The Springfield team has been playing a "lifeless" brand of ball for the past several weeks, and the chances are that Waterbury will pass the Flynn tribe unless a brace is taken. The Brasscos are 2 1-2 games behind the Ponies. O There was some loud timber smashing at Newfield Park yesterday, the healthy and timely swatting of the locals be ing responsible for the win. The Brasscos proved troublesome in both games. Cosgrove's outfit is playing an improved brand of ball and will be dangerous to all teams from now on until the close of the season. Combination Repeats. Kingdon and Lofts repeated their winning stunt of Wednesday by fur nishing the hits that yielded the -winning tally. With one down in the sixth Kingdon peeled off a two , eacker, scoring on (Loftus" rap to center, -who perished -while trying to negotiate second. McLaughlin also laced a hit to center in this round, hue he died en route. Kingdon scored in the second on a pass and Loftus' double to left. Mc Laughlin pushing Loftus across the plate on a three base sock to left. How Brasscos Scored. Successive doubles toy Perrin and tHorkheimer netted Waterbury's first tally in the fifth. The second and last tally of the visitors -was scored by Dowd who tripled to left, and advanced home on Pickup's infield clout. Rally Is Punctured. The Cosgrove tribe loomed up dan gerous in the ninth when Pickup opened the inning with a single to center, advancing to second on Torphy's sacrifice, but the scoring as pirations of the visitors were nipped .right there. Eddie Zimmerman, who -was sent in the game to bat for Per rin, was quickly retired over the Ray-Rodriguez route, while Hork heimer flied out to Ray, the latter concluding the game -with a pretty catch of the near Texas leaguer. This and That In the Game. "Rabbit" Emmerich encountered a tough day in batting, fouling out to . Prediger twice, flying and Dowd and fanning once. Joe Smith's mighty pegging arm silenced the base perloining ambi tions of Torphy and Long. "Kitty" BransBeld "umped" the came single-handed, his partner En nis, being Incapacitated by ear-ache. Again it wasn't the team that past ed the greatest number of hits to win. Waterbury oufibatted Bridgeport 9 to 7. Torphy Covering First. Red Torphy. who Is temporarily jfllling Eddie Hart's position, appears to be quite at home around the initial sack. Several times he produced aerial leaps and one-hand pippina a la Rodriguez. The lone double-play -went to the .oredit of Bridgeport, McLaughlin, Ray and Rodriguez being the actors. A vast Improvement In Dick Loftus' etickwork in the last few games is f a gladsome spectacle to the Derby 1 rooters. Shorty Long, leading hatter in the rl'eague, spanked the ball safely twice ! in four trips to the plate. Gene Martin caused a little -worry I to Pitcher Colley. Twice the peer less right gardener of the Derbies grounded to Torphy, while he was re tired by Dowd and Torphy the same i number of times. While Joe Cosgrove failed to break .ny hitting records in the series his . fielding in both games was of the . grit-edge "brand. WOLFRAM READY Pitcher Wolfram, who has ibeen out of the game the greater part of the season owing to mishaps and- in juries of various sorts, is likely to twirl in one of the games tomorrow at Springfield, where a double header is scheduled. Early in the eeason Wolfram hurt his arm and shortly after he recovered, a tendon in one of his legs was damaged. Wolfram's return to action is expect ed to help the pitching department.

McALEER IN ACTION TONIGHT. Tommy McAleer and David Rosen berg will clash tonight in the stellar bout in the ring of the Palace of Joy arena at Coney Island. Babe Adams Pirates' Box Veteran, Longs to Pitch One More Worlds Series Pittsburgh, Aug. 12 Pittsburgh is baseball crazy this year. It's a mil lion to one bet that Pittsburgh will win the National League flag, the na- ttves hereabouts will tell you. But there is a touch of pathos in tkis great race. Charles B. ("Babe") Adams, gen tleman, clean-IIv pg athlete, is 38 ami about done in big time baseball. Adams knows it and admits it. In 1909 12 long years ago "Babe" Adams, in the world's series that year, was the hero. Then noth ing more than, a rookie, he won three games of the series. It was nip and tuck between Pittsburgh and Detroit, and Kid Adams separated the Tigers tfrom the world's championship. He was the wonder pitcher of that time. Some year3 since then the great "Babe" didn't play the greatest brand of baseball extant. Half a dozen years ago they said he was through, 'and it did at times look like it. But . last year "Babe" took a brace. He has been a popular idol hereabouts for a long time. Win or lose, the - gang was always for him. and they boosted him when they were roasting Other, players. Credit to Gibson. But Manager George Gibson made wonderful progress last year toward a flag-winning team, but he couldn't quite come across. During the win ter Gibby plotted and schemed, and he swapped and dickered until this spring he had a promising looking team when they went to training camp. After the season opened and Pitts burgh set the pace the croakers said It was a spring flash, and the Pirates would blow up, but they are still go ing good. Realizing that Pittsburgh would come mighty near having a winning team this year, "Babe" Adams de termined he would pitch in one more world's series. He has his heart set on that, and the smiling veteran has been pitching his head off all sea son, and every time you see Adams cha'ilt up on the score boards as the pitcher you can get your money down that Pittsburgh is pretty sure to win tnat game. Pittsburgh is hungry for a pen nant. It has cast sheep's eyes at the pennant for a long time in vain; Today's Games. Philadelphia at Boston. Brooklyn at New York. Chicago at Pittsburgh. Cincinnati at .St. Louis. SPORT SNAPSHOTS GOSHEN A record price for a green trotter was paid here when Emma Harvester, 2.12 1-4, was sold to W. H. Cane for $20,000.

Hall has one mnrp niduled game with Connecticut Avenue and if victorious will cop the pennant. Bud Palmer Wants Eight With Darcey "Bud" Palmer Is, 26 years old, but he desires to stamp out the impres sion prevailing in some circles that he Is an "old man" in the boxing game and that he still has some of his old time fighting stuff in his sys tem. Palmer is out with a manifesto that he would like to meet Sailor Johnny Daroey, conqueror of Red Allen, in a four-round bout at th nrnnnsnl Columbia A. C. smoker next month. Palmer declares he can lick; Darcey over the short route. Another boxer Palmer is jifter Is Patsy QBogash. According to gossip in Columbia club circles Palmer was offered as a substitute f os Micky Dance, when the Waterbury- boxer was forced to cancel hi3 Arena en gagement with Patsy, but the- latter balked at fighting Palmer. No one ever heard of Patsy being scared of any boxer in these or other regions. On the contrary, Patsy was never known to duck matches. At any rate, if Patsy has inclinations to meet Palmer, Billy Mason, match maker of the Columbia club, is ready to open negotiations. Palmer looks to he in fine shawe as a result of his sparring with Bud Weafer and Jack Delaney. New Boxer Wants Tight.

Quiet " off the field, while in the regalia of the club he is an ever-fighting but f cool-headed little performer of the diamond. Phil recently rejoined ,L the club after an illness of nearly a month, during which the team felt his absence severely. He was hitting for nearly .300 when taken ''t sick but since his return had gone almost a single until Tuesday. ' T "But Phil didn't lose heart- He stuck to it and he came back Into his own with the willow. Two hits, one a triple, and two runs brought victory to the Senators in the first game Tuesday and in the second he connected safely thrice, once for a double, and was a big help in that win. In addition he stole a sack in each contest. "Neher is a great little ball player, a wonderful favorite with the fans for just the things that make him a good player, his truly great grit plus his ability." - Big money is involved In the case of Gov. Small. "Coppers" Hypnotized By Connie Lewis9 Rooting By EDDIE SHUGRUE. Connie Lewis sprung a surprise on Jack Halpjn's Coppers and his team won Iby a score of 7 to 6, in a ten in ning fray. Lewis was wild in the first two innings and passed several men and a long three base hit by MoMnHen, first sacker of the "Cops," accounted for four runs. Lewis tight ened up and his team fielded well after Fritz Musante was yanked from right field after making three errors. Hits by McGee and Sherwood fea tured for the victors, born boys con nected for doubles in succession and Lewis did the fancy act by fanning and letting them die on base. The "Cops" opened the fray when Lewis walked three men N and Me Mullen celared the sacks with a long drive to the seawall over Musante's head. Caeperack's fielding was a fea ture of the Cods. handling nine throws from third with -only one mis- play. Al BuTdick, chairman of the boxing commission, played fine ball having six putouts to his credit in center field. He also clipped one of 1 Jaggers" shoots for a single. r The All-Stars enacted the only j double play of the game from Sher- j woodto Schorndorff to Brown. - Jag- ! gers was in rare form and gave but j three free tickets to first and fanned j four men, including Lewis Lewis twirled tfair ball and hyp . notized the "Brass Button Boys" tbyj:. his riting.
