WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT. TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1903.
i i K k rv THE DIAMOND. Bain Spoiled Two City Amateur Games Saturday. Only One Was Played Monday Oains - Were Well Attended Some of the' Team 3 Late in Arriving at : Grounds-Scores of Games in the Connecticut and Other Leagues. Three games were scheduled to-be played by the City league team last Saturday, but owing to the. rain only one was played off. - : The Merrlmaes and North Ends could have played their game easily be fore the rain came, but were prevented from starting early because of the non-arrival of two of the North End players. So the teams and, crowd waited anxiously watching the dark black clouds as they grew blacker and nearer, and hoping the two players would put in appearance in time to play at least five innings before the rain j - descended. ; Finally Players Thompson and Baker arrived and the. two teams lined up for battle, and about the same, time the rain began to fall. They, however, continued to play, but by the time the second inning, was finished the rain was coming down ia torrents and all the players were al most immediately drenched through. The game was called at this period, and the North Ends or Slerrimacs missed another chance to add to their percentage column. The crowd would have witnessed a nice game most likely if it was played out. as both teams had their best men In line. Bates, as usual, distinguished himself. The Merrlmans had thTee men on bases In the first inning and none out when: Bates settled down and struck out the nextthree men up. Phelan and McNeills were the battery for the Merrimacs. The score was 1 to 0 in favor of the North Ends when the game was called at the close of the second inning, Matty Phelan umpired. Two games were to be played at the Athletic field, but the first wasn't finished in time for the Saints and Brooklyns to come together before the rain came. Saturday's game was the first one played on that field this year. The-idiamond isn't quite as good as it was in former years, but away ahead of 4 the ones at Riverside and the Driving ' park. The first game was between the Washington Hills and Pastimes, and started shortly after 2 o'clock.' Mc Gianis was in the box for the Hills and had little trouble In retiring the Pastime batters. He always was very effective against the West End team. Slavin caught him in his usual fine manner. Therault of , Oakville was resurrected to pitch this game for the pastimes and the Hills sent uhim back to the -woods once more by banging his delivery all over the lot. At the end of the game the Hills had fifteen runs their credit while the West Enders could only suummon six. Spellman caught for the Pastimes. "Den" Fox umpired. ., ': 'K'. Sunday Games. ' The first game at the Driving park was scheduled to be played at 2 o'clock between the Saints and Merrimacs. The Merrimacs failed to.' arrive on the grounds until some time' after 2 and Manager Leydon of the Saints wanted the umpire to forfeit the game to his team because of the Merrimacs delay.' This Umpire Fox refused to do, Tho St Josephs axe in second position and a logs by, them now means a good deal to them and Manager Leydon could liardly be blamed for protesting and making the kick he did. They were beaten, but notwithstanding .this fact Manager Leydon is going to protest the game at the next meeting of the board of managers. - The game started with the Saints at the bat. .: They soon got men on bases and scored one run because of Reid wild throw to home. That's al they scored-that inning. The Merrimacs came to the bat in 4;heir turn and -were quickly retired.; The Saints failed to score In the second and the Merrimacs in their try were equal ly unsuccessful. Both Moran ' and Byrnes were doing fine work and were being beautifully supported. In "the third the Saints scored another run. The Merrimacs failed to do anything in their half and, the score stood 2 to 0 In the Saints' favoT. In the fourth inning the fun commenced.. The Saints came to the bat in the beginning of this in ning and bv bunching their hits and Aided by a few wild throws scored four more runs, putting the score 6 to 0 in their favor. The Saints had what they thought a good winning lead and felt very .confident by .this time. But the Merrimacs had another chance and moTe than took advantage of It Ed Hayes was first up in the last of the f ourth and started the ball a rolling by banging out a pretty two-bagger to deep center. "Sal" Slavin followed and banged out another beauty for two bags and scored the first- Merrlmac run. George Byrnes was the third batter and put the West End rooters into a frenzy by hitting out another hit and scoring the second run for his team. Patsy Kane made a fine throw home to catcb Slavin and Pat Cavan augh would have surely retired Slavin, but, he dropped the ball., Byrnes took second on the throw to home, John ' Kenny, the Merrimacs' crack - short stop. wa next at the bat and knocked a slow liner to short that he easily beat ttt and advancing George Byrnes to third.- With Byrnes on third and Kenny on second, Tom Kenny came up and made another hit and scored George Byrnes. John Kenny went to third on the hit. Reid was next up and banged a hit to right field, on which John Kenny scored, making the fourth run for the Merrimacs. John Haye9 came tip and was thrown out at first. McNeills was the next batter and knocked a high one to deep, center whih Kane cantured and threw home in time to retire Tom Kenny, who was trvlnsr tv score on the fly. Kenny could easily have scored if he had kept on running for nome, out ne stopped started back for third and then turned and started for home again and was caught. This made the third out and the score stood at this time 6 to 4 in favor of the Saints. The East End ers took heart then. The Saints were tin able to do anything with Byrnes' s delivery and were retired in snort nvler In the first of the fifth. Not so with the Merrlmaes. They were out to ' win and immediately banged Moran' s delivery all over the lot. Ed Hayes was the first man up and hit out hi? second two bagger.. "Sal" Slavin, not to be outdone, followed and did the same. Geore Byrnes added to his bat ting percentage by driving out, another hit,, and John Kenny also dld,the same, Tom Kenny kept it up by pushing out another pretty hit, and Reid; who fol lowed, landed . another, safe one right back of third.. John Hayes cleared tne bases with another two-bagger and scored shortly after by drawing a wild throw to third. McNeills, Tom Byrnes and Ed Hayes were the-next three bat ters, but failed to score. When all was over and the third man had been put out the Merrimacs had seven more tal lies to their score, which made it 11 to 6 in their favor. This bombarding had been done in the last of. the fifth. After this inning Moran settled down and the Merrimacs failed to score any more runs. The T. A. B.'s scored one run after that and stopped right there, leaving the scoTe 11 to 7 In favor of the East End team. The game contin ued until 4 o'clock, when the argument arose. Only eight innings had been played and the Merrimacs didn't ob ject, but the Brooklyns and Washing ton Hills wanted to start their game and Insisted on taking the field at 4 o'clock. After a little talk they agreed to let the game go on and Umpire Fox shouted "Play ball." Then the Saints refused to bat. The umpire ordered the Merirmacs to take their positions, which they did, and called 'upon the Saints to put up their batter. This the Saints refused to do, and after Tom Byrnes had pitched two or three balls, called the gam and declared the Mer rimacs the winners by the score of 11 to 7. Only one more inning was to be played, but Manager Leydon refused to go on with the gamev He said be had his reasons for not continuing and said he'd protest the game because the Merrimacs weren't on the grounds at 2 o'clock. ' The next meeting of the board of managers will be held at the St Josephs' room on East Main street; then the matter will be finally decided. "Den" Fox umpired the game and gave satisfaction. .' ; : X''-'wv- - The second game was between the Washington TOMs and Brooklyns. The Brooklyns were out for the game and started right off In-the first inning to win. They made six runs in their first try at the bat and kept it up 'till Captain Mulligan substituted "Red" Barker of Watervllle in the box. "Red" pitched good ball for ti Hills and kept the Brooklyns down to.' a few runs. But the damage had already been done and try as hard as they could the Hills couldn't come even within hailing distance of the Brook lyns. -Pratt started In to pitch for the Hills. He used to be able to pitch a pretty good game, but he can't be de pended upon. Barker is a good man and with the assistance of McGinnls nnarht to be able, with cood support, to win their games. John Kelly twirled for the Brooklyns and had excellent control. He had speed to burn and all kinds of twisters last Sunday. Kelly Is coming back Into his old form once more and with the team that's behind him now will make a good bid for the pennant. He was almost - perfectly mmnorterl cmlte different witD tne Washlneton Hill pitcher. The Infield of the 'Hills put up a miserable game and made quite a number of errors and wild, throws, something new for this team to do, but the best of them hare off days sometimes and the Hill? proved no exception Sunday. "Dicky" Sheehan was particularly off Sunday and put up his worst game of the sear son. Mulligan had a few' errors' also1, ,as did Jack Scully and Berghr.'in fact, it was a bad day for the Hills and a corking isrood one for the Brooklyns. The Brooklyns by their victory Sunday come well up to the' front and the fin ish promises to be-rwell, anything but a cold one. The final score between the Washington Hills and Brooklyns wag 15 to 3 In favor of the Brooklyns, r v Notes. . ', . ..', p. 'oiv-.v j; A great crowd turned out to--' witness the game Sunday. Is Sunday base ball appreciated? Well, Judging from the crowd,, yes. "Where did you . get all the long green, John?" asked a friend of John Hurlev. "O . thaf Patsnr Mank'n? . T took a few of his three to one bets on the Saints." The college boys will soon return to their studies. Joe Murrav has tlaved his last game with the Washington Hills this season, as he starts to Holy Cross next Wednesday. V ' "Old man," said Jimmy, Downey of the Merrlmac- club to Jerry Klne. know what we can do?" "No," said Jerry. ' "We can whip any - team in this city!" said Jimmy. . The Pastimes are still bringing up the rear and the chances are will be there at the end of the season. They haven't won a game this season und don't seem to exert themselves very much about improving their team. -"Well, Jerry, you're playing great ball to-day," said Center Fielder Law lor. of the Washington Hills to Jerry Shugrue of the Brooklyns. "Makes no difference to me. Red, " , answered Jerry; "will celebrate anyway, win or lose." " -, .--. ' .. "What was the matter, Jimbad playing on our part?" said a St Joseph man to Jim Freney. "No," said Mr Freney, "our boys played good ball, few errors were made, but Moran was hit harder than I've ever seen him be fore." - , -. - , ,- :. ''.";.. Reid of the Merrimacs will play with his team next Saturday and Sunday Monday he starts for the University of Virginia, where he Is studying law. Bill Thompson will soon return , to Georgetown and John of the Brooklyns will be off for his college In Canada in a week. " , Five or six games have to be played by each team yet and the season prom ises to run iip to the middle part of October. Last week it looked as though the race was to be between the Washington Hills and St Josephs, but Sunday's results altered things. The Brooklyns and the North Ends have to be considered now, and the Merrimacs. although not for first place, have' a chance to land in second position. Tho windlammers of South Brook iyn' defeated the Nutmeg Social club baseball team Sunday arternoon Dy tne score of 24 to 14. The lineup of the winning team was: T. Conway, p; S. Parry, c: E. Duefrane. lb: M. Carroll. 2b; E. Conway, ss; J. Duefrane, 3b; D. Hickey. rf; J. Carney, cf; M. Sut roe, If. The battery for the losers was Myers and Benway, pitchers, and A. Luke, catcher. The features of the game were the playing of E. Conway at short and the pitcnlng or ... T. Con way. Ed and John Hayes of the Merrimacs are twins. It's hard to distinguish one from the other. Ed was on third and John was on the coach line coaching him. "Sal" Slavin was on first; Moran pitched the ball. Slavin started for. second. Cavanaueh made a fine throw. to catch him, but ."Sal" stopped before; reaching second. John Hayes, tne coacher, ran towards home. Dews,: thinking It was Ed that was trying to score, threw to home and the ball weuc away over Cavanaugh's head. Then Ed Hayes trotted In from third base, followed by Slavin. A clever trick. lowed in the big games. ' ' ; MORNING GAMES. At Holyoke. ; Holyoke, Sept 8.

Phllad'elphla, Sept 8. Gus Ruhlin pxrt it all over Kid Carter in a six round fight her last night. Ruhlin completely .outclassed the Kid, and the only thing, that saved the Brook lyn boy from taking .the full count was his gameneiss. Ruhlin went right to work in the first round and started with, vicious left Jabs to Carter's jaw. He landed several of . them and Carter tried to come back with one or, two vicious rights, which missed their mark, and then he came -to a clinch. X . Ruhlin followed these taotics up in the second round and had Carter's head rocking with his straight left jabs. One of s these blows brought the blood freely to Carter's nose. Carter was evidently worried and began swinging wildly. . . In the third round Ruhlin ran out of his corner and smashed Carter against the ropes and hadj him almost going. Carter came back, however, and got in a, stinging left to Ruhlin'a jaw which angered Gus and he swung right and left to Carter's face, staggering him. One of Ruhlin'8 straight lefts almost upset Carter, but he managed to keep hi balance- and . came back with a right swing to the bead. ) Both . men were covered with blood at the gong. : From ; that on . it - was all Ruhlin. He badv Carter , wandering and tired, on Queer street, but weak as he was the . Kid managed to stay the six rounds and prevent a knockout.
