Lou Bogash Wins Verdict Handily Over Johnny Tillman
THE BRIDGEPORT TIMES
Boehling Against
Hartfords Today
By GEORGE II FIRSTBROOK
Derbies still on top, but they need a little dustin' off.
-O O
Sapped twice at Hartford yesterday is bad enough, but the
situation could be "still worser." Worcester was handed a
trimming by the tailend Albany team, but the Pittsfield Hillies
downed Waterbury twice, tieing Worcester for second place.
O O
Phew! Should be a warm session tomorrow at New field
Park with the revived Hillies here for two games.
O O
Arguments and alibis cease right here. The Derbies got
onlv nine safe cracks in the two games to Hartford's 19.
O O
Up To Joe Boehling Today
But "Dixie55 Joe Boehling may daze the Senators today.
He will oppose Miles Thomas of "no-hit-no-run" fame, accord
ing to the Hartford dopsters.
O O
Gene Martin carried the keenest batting optics yesterday.
One-third of the hits registered by the Derbies helped along his
battling average.
O O
Johnny Thole is continuing at a steady clip batting .077,
drawing pay checks without a miss and warming up the pitch
ers. Never mind, Johnny, the water is still flowing under the

Derbies Sot Cast Aown.
Hartford, Aug. 20 Eugene Mc
Cann and his leading Brown Derbies
-were nonplussed by their double de
.feat at the hands of the Senators
iyesterday. Failure to hit Penning
(ton and Head lost the games for the
-Bridgeport pennant chasers, while
iChet Thomas' combination exper
ienced no trouble dn solving the de
livery of Leasure in the first game
and Stauffer in the second fray. Scores
in both games were 6 to 1.
The Derbies scored their, tally In
the first game in the fourth round
on a single by Ray and another by
Martin and two infield outs. Thereaf
ter the Derbies were quite docile in
front of Ralph Head's pitching.
Double Steal by Derbies.
Bridgeport was the first to score
.In the second game. The incident
occurred in the second inning with
two down. Kingdon beat out a bunt
to Bantoro and advanced to third
when Lai was safe on a slow roller
to Neher. The double stea.1 was
pulled and Kingdon was safe when
Damm muffed Scheer's return peg.
Bridgeport was peaceful through
out before Pennington. In the eighth
with none down, McLaughlin doubled
but he stayed at second while the
next three men were easily retired.
In the ninth, "Kewpie" temporarily
lost control and walked the first two
men to face him. Smith, who has
busted up many a ball game for
Bridgeport, was inserted into the bat
tin order in Thole's place, but he un
graciously fanned. Kingdon was out,
Bantoro to Hesse, on a prety play and
the game ended when Lai filed to
Haines. ,
In the ninth inning of game Ao. 1,
Kane doublecrossed everyone when
Instead -of smashing one, he dumped
the pill into the iwield. The play
caught the Brown Derbies off their
balance and "Brick" easily beat the
throw to first.

first game to his inability to con
tinue in the box after the sixth in

helped to put him in proper physical
shape. To offset any possibility of a
recurrence of the attack the prescrip
tion propounders have arranged to
have an ambulance and a complete
supply of bandages, braces and
crutches on hand.
The lawyers are not saying much,
but they are wearing smiles. They
are confident that Tom La very, the
baby of the bar, will ltransform them
from would be base ball players to
club siwngers. Tommie has actually
promised to establish a new strike

Flanagan has purchased a new bat.

Jack Bulger has secured an agreement with Leo P. Flynn whereby
Walker will meet some good man Labor Day, In a match which will
serve as an introductory affair to the New York debut of Walker.

"Within six weelts Walker will get another crack at Britten.
Walker surely will be the first man to meet. Britton if Leonard does

Leoiiard-Brittou match on right in Newark. That is straight."
Rex Cox. Albany pitcher, is a candidate for the "Miracle Man" medal.
He has won 13 out of 2 2 games he has twirled for the Lawmakers. How did
he do it, they're all asking,
Veteran Eddie Zimmerman, switched from Waterbury to Spring
field, is getting a big hand from fans in the latter city on his brilliant
playing at tfeird base. Eddie, although , a veteran, is still a great
player and should be a valualifce asset to any club.
"Moose" Mller may a victim of a lot of razzing and much of it is of
the good natured sort, but Miller is one of the best umps in the league, in
our opinion. Miller stands very little nonsense from the players, and if some
of his tormentors who are protected by the wire barricades of grandstands
would have the courage of hurling some of their guff at Miller on the street
there would be less of it mingling in the air at ball games. "Moose" Miller
is a fair and honest umpireif he does hail from New Haven.
Bring on the Bogash and Delaney fight! The fans are clamoring
for a go between these local boys.
Tris Speaker, pilot of the Indians, is beimj hailed as the "original emer
gency manager." He is always there in a pinch. He is a manager who gets
100 per cent, out of every player on his team. He knows how to handle men.
Perhaps the Indians may be beaten to the wire by the Yankees.
They may lose out to a club that abounds with power. But they sure
ly will go down fighting like heroes and the team that finished ahead
of them will know it has been in a pennant race.

Old Jim Mutrie
Is Heard From
New York, Aug. 20. Old Jim
Mutrie. who managed the Met
ropolitans back in 1883, '84 and
'85, was a visitor in the press
box at the Polo Grounds yester
day afternoon and was busy
making comparisons between the
players of today nid those cf
the era when Jim was in his hey
day. Mutrie did not hold that all
the great ones played in the by
gone era. '-We had some great
teams in our day. but there seems
to be some great ones now too."
declared Mutrie, who is 71 years
old and still very much inter
ested in the major league races.
"There is one thing to which I
object strongly," said Jim. "I do
not think that men should be
taken out for pinch hitters. In
our day it was a battle royal a
picked nine against a picked nine.
Why. one day in Buffalo, one of
my players could not continue
and I sked permission to send in
another man. That permission
was not given. But, that was go
ing the limit the other way."

Kid Lewis, Canadian feather

and cleverest performers ever seen
in the state. In his 12 round battle
with Kid Kaplan of Hartford, in
Meriden. last night, the ex-Canadian
made the Meriden bearcat miss
aplenty throughout the fray. Lewis'
superb cleverness enabled him to cop
the first five rounds with the excep
tion of the second which went to
Kaplan by a wide margin. But Kap
lan came back and copped all of the
remaining rounds with the exception
of the ninth which was even.
The semi- final of eight rounds be
tween Soldier Gibson of New Haven
and Tracey Ferguson of Wallingford
was a corker. This soldier boy cer
tainly could take punishment, as Fer
guson hit him with everything in the
'book," the cover, and then some
more, but he could not bring him
down. In the two six-round prelim
inaries, Young Leonard was handed
the decision over Georgie Hesbor. and

OOASH CHOPS
UP TILLMAN
IN FAST BOUT
Louise Bogash ma.de a big lilt be
fore Ueston fight fans last night by
his decisive win over Johnny Tillmaii.
the Minneapolis welterweight. .0
gash was trained to the minute anA
had no trouble in disposing of th.oi
boxer from the Northwest.
Tillman made his best showing in
the early stages of the fight, but the
last five rounds were Bogash's all
the way. Local figh fans who have
been doubting that Bogash could not
reach the welter limit were taken by
surprise when the cws reached here
yesterday that the Bridgeport boxer
ti-pped the scales at 147 pounds,
while Tillman's weight half a pound
less.
Bogash started oft at a hurricane
clip, getting in some heavy body
clouts on his opponent which had
Tillman guessing. Bogash continued
to sock in vicious rights to the body
of his adversary, and at the close
of the second round the latter dis
played signs of weakening.
Tillman Was Game.
Tillman displayed a- game spirit in
the third, fourth and fifth sessions
when he attempted to carry the bat
tle to Bogash. but the local hoy got
out of the way of his rushes and
sent home some damaging punches
that took the steam out of Tillman.
In the fifth 1.. Bogash landed a
left hand punch over Tillman's left
optic that brought the claret.
During the remainder of the fight
Bogash outfought his foe to a stand
still, the latter taking a lot of pun
ishment. Fans expected to see Bo
gash land a kayo, but the local bat
tler failed to exert himself to tho
limit and the fans got a long run for
their money.
Patsy Bogash Also Wins.
Joe Giggs, a big Boston favorite,
took a hard pummelling from Patsy
Bogash. The latter fought one of
the best fights of his ring career and
won the applause of the Hub fans
for his fast work.
Patsy was outweighed, but the ex
cess avordupois of Gibbs. was offset
by Patsy s cleverness, who hit the
Woonsocket pug at will. In the ninth,
and tenth rounds Gibbs made a des
perate effort to pull himself together
and dispatched Patsy through the,
ropes, but Patsy had a big reserve,
of strength and administered a se
vere beating to Gibbs.
Sailor Darden, the highly tooted
colored boxer, received the verdict
over Paddy Flynn in a rough and
tumble bout.
The Bogash party arrived home
early this morning.
Do You Know
That
Local semi-iro ball fans are
clamoring for a three cornered
contest between the Crashos,
Trans and North Ends for the
City amateur championship.
Manager George Row of the
North Ends is willing, but the
Irans and Crashos are a bit shy
on the proposition.
One German that carries a
K. O. is Hans Breitenstein,
heavyweight boxing champion
ship of Germany, who hayoed
Harold Rolph, heavyweight
champion of the Canadian Army,
in the 10th round, in Berlin.
Oy Morgan, who pitched for
Springfield last season, was the
box sensation of the Eastern
League last season and great
things were predicted for Ins fu
ture when he got in under the
big tent. He led the O'Neil cir
cuit pitehers in wins last season
and joined the Braves, but he is
in seclusion, being used only as
an emergency boxman.
President John Heydler of the
National League, says the out
field play this year is the best he
has seen in many a season. He
thinks the lively ball has helped
to make it more spectacular, the
gardeners being driven to the
limit, to make catches of hard hit
drives. Now and then one does
go over the fence, that is true,
but for every one that goes over
outfielders race to the corners
and drag down a dozen.
Jake Daubert says the trouble
with baseball is that it has be
come too mechanical too set,,
He thinks the fans want something
surprising and upsetting in the
way of play now and then. May
be Jake is right. About the only
unexpected r.tuff we get nowa
days is when some runner steals
third with a man already on the
base.
NORTH ENDS SET.
Tomorrow the Xorth Ends will
journey to Fairfield to play the to.wn
team. The Xorth Ends have had
four previous bookings with the Fair
fields but have never been able to
meet, rain preventing", so an inter
esting" battle will take pla.ee as the
Xorth Ends are anxious to make it
13 straight. Stafford or Hayes will
pitch while Meerbich will be on tho
receiving end. All Xorth End play
ers ftie reouested to report at tho
elub at 1:30 as buses will leave at
that time.
