CINCINNATI, Sept 16. Philadelphia
and Cincinnati broke even in a double
header today, tho locals winning the
first game, 4 to 3, and Philadelphia cap
turing the second, which went six Innings,
4 to 0. The second game was begun In a
drizzling rain and was called at the
ond of tho"1 sixth on account of darkness.
In the opening struggle honors were
even up to tho eghth Inning when Phila
delphia, mainly through Johnson's wild
ness, managed to squeeze a run over the
plate on two base on balls nnd a single.
This put the score at 3 to 2 In Phila
delphia's . favor. ' In the ninth, however,
with a slippery ball to handle, Seaton lost
control, He walked three men and then
Groh poked a ball into deep left, which
Mageo misjudged, scoring Berghammer
with the tyng run and Packard wth the
wnnng run.
In tho second game, Meyer was ef
fective at all stages, while Robertson, a
recruit from Savannah, Go., had one
bad inning, the third. In that session
Knobs walked, Becker singled and Lobert
popped to the outfield.' Magee walked,
filling the bases, and Cravath's double
scored all three men. Xuderus' single
brought in Cravath. Score, first game:

Big Catcher of the Omaha Team to
Become a Giant
And Daaty Rhodes Is Drnirn by Con
nie Mack to Help Ont the Phil
adelphia American Leagne
Pitching Staff.
Hickory Johnson, first string catcher
for the Rourkea for two' years, his been
drafted by the New. York Giants. It Is
the first line Hick has-been lucky enough
to get a chance with the big leagues,
although he has been" sought by tho
draft for three years. .Last year tho
Boston' Nationals put a draft In for him,
but Mark Hall was the lucky man iA
went to the Detroit club, where he has
made good.
To many the draft of Johnson by the
Giants Is a surprise. Johnson was
drafted through the Instrumentality of
Dick Klnsella, scout for John McGraw'a
bunch. When Klnsella was In Omaha he
had no praise for Johnson and from his
talk it would be Inferred that Hickory
was nothing more than a Close A catcher.
It will be remembered by those who
havo followed the career of Johnson that
he played ball under Klnsella for a few
years In the Springfield club ot the Three
I league. Klnsella 'was manager of .the
club and Johnson his best catcher.
Shortly after thd opening of the 1912 sea
son Johnson was secured by IJpurke.
Klnsella In the meantime had gone to the
Giants as scout
For three weeks Klnsella hung around
Omaha this season and never had a good
word to gay about Johnson. In -fact ono
day lnt conversation with the sporting
editor of The Bee he said Johnson was a
good hitter, but could be fooled by big
league twlrlers. Then he said Hick did
not think fast enough, but evidently
Dick was trying to throw his heareia off
the scent He succeeded.
In glancing over the names of thosrt
who were drafted one finds the name of
Bert Nlehoff of Loujsville, who will go
to Tinker's Ctnclnnntl ' Reds. Jfhis in
formation Ik also halted with delight by
the Omaha fans as Nlehoff was the most
popular player on the Omaha team when
here. He was without a doubt the fast
est base runner In the league and then
went up to the Louisville club and today
Is leading the .league in base stealing.
The biggest surprise of the list and
which most Omahans will overlook lb
the draft of Dusty Rhodes by Conhlu
Mack for his Athletics. "Dusty" was a
good pitcher when he first Joined the
Rourkea, but last year he failed to make
good and was released outright He
tried out with the St Joseph club this
season but was released and then caught
on with the Houston club' of the Texas
league. He showed up fairly well'and it
was from this club that the'Phllad'elphla
Americans secured him by "the draft
Among other Western league players
who will go up Is Barbour of Lincoln,
who for the last two years has been
playing' third base, but 'since the injury
to Charley Mullen has-been holding down
first base. He goes to the White Sox.
