The afternoon was hot and sultry

it was a White Sox victory and a

almost looked foolish In attempting
to check the Islanders' onslaaght '
as the game progressed.
' Weakeaed By Break. '
It la true that tbe Bloomer war
weakened considerably by the re
moval of Catcher Snyder in tbe sec
ond inning, after bis insulting re
marks to Umpire Llpe over a call
ed strike on him (8nyder). who waa
the last man retired in the' Brat.
But nothing the Bloomers could do
had any effect in attempting ta
forge ahead of the Islanders. .i
Playing all the way at tbe top of
their game, with the possible ex
ception of tbe eighth inning whom
Sid Stewart relaxed, the Islanders
tied the score aad then maintained
the lead like real champioas. -
The sign of errorless ball aa
seen in the box score does not In
dicate the flashy fielding perform
ed by the whole team. The Inseld
rs performed like clockwork aadj
