J. mr GRANTLAXD rice:
' Wi'JW YORK, Oct. 6. (Special.)
Those broken blossoms from the
rreedy human gardens of life might
consider the case of one ..John Will
vn Scott of Ridge way.' N. C.,, and
th New York Giants.
Only a few months ago John WiU
IVi ricott was also a broken blossom
' la the garden of a game where time
and fate, the two caretakers, have
but little mercy on those who seem
to be drooping on the-bush. When
the spring season opened Scott, at
' the age- of 28, was a pitcher with a
lame shoulder, a family to feed, and
I nothing left but a worn-out glove.
The lame shoulder was so far gone
that Cincinnati turned him adrift to
tet him learn another trade. But It
So happened that while his right
shoulder may have been full of
Snots and seamy trouble there was
Sothing the matter with Scott's
' MHiraw Take Chance.
Somewhere around - mid-summer
lie tall pitcher, 6 feet 2 above the
jj, carried his lame shoulder to the
' fclo grounds and offered it to Mc
Oraw. And -McGraw took a chance.
This afternoon in the presence of
1,8, 000 fans a tail, stoop-shouldered
vitcher by the name f John William
: Scott of Ridaeway. N. C, and the
New York Giants, stepped out
front of the hard-hitting Yankees
and turned them inside out with one
. of the greatest pitching exhibitions
of the year.
Working away with all the cool
ness and serenity of one who knows
that he has whipped fate to a stand
still, Scott held, the astonished Yan
kees to four scattered hits, shut
them out and thereby lifted the
Giants into a commanding position
that overlooks the fertile plains of
another rich world's aeries harvest.
it was almost as if an abandoned
derelict had .sailed in and whipped
a battle criiser. for Scott pitched
the eyeballs out of Waite Hoyt, with
an exhibition of consistent sniping
that none of those present will ever
forget. Scott won. 3 to 0, and he
finished under wraps.
SlauKhter In Expected.
Having heard that the Giants had
no pitchers left with Nehf and
Barnes out of the way, the packed
stands peered out through the .hazy
Indian summer afternoon to get a
close-up of the terrific slaughter
about to happen to Henry Fabian's
green carpet below. They expected
to see the tall, gaunt Giant, in build
almost the haunting ghost of Shuf
flin' Phil Douglass, hammered to a
pulp that knows neither shape nor
form. They expected to 'see Yankee
bats pound him. into sudden and
quick submission as Hoyt.. rolled
back the Giants as easily as he
a year ego.
But as inning after inning went
by, as the light went out of the set- j
ting sun and the October haze grew
deeper, it began to look as if tne
impending slaughter might be de
layed. The savage Giant attack got
to Hoyt for two runs in the., third;
but the Yanks never got to Scott.
Round after round they found his
cool, sedate delivery and his baf
fling curve ball blocking the high
way. And no-one found the Ridge
way wanderer harder to reach than
Babe Ruth. .
Ruth at Scott's Merey.
Scott held Ruth at his 'mercy, a
marionette at the end of a string.
The big Babe took his old toe-hold,
scowled each time with grim de
termination and drove the big ash
at the ball, but Scott, still unruffled
and unperturbed, continued to do
his stuff as the Babe tried in vain
to hit one out of the infield. In
four separate and distinct trips to
the plate the Bambino died the
death of slugging shame on easy
grounders to first or second that
a child might have caught in his
cap. Scott had him faded and the
Babe's glory again disappeared back
of a hitless cloud. The big boy gave
the best he ha3. but rieott had more
on the ball than Ruth had on the
bat, and when this happens there
is only one story left to tell.
As the game wore on and the
stands saw the ' ex-derelict of fate
drawing closer and closer to the
kingdom of victory they began to
wonder whether or not the tall
pitcher could go the route. Thirty
eight thousand fans got their an
swer in the fourth inning. Wally
Hipp had grounded out when Bob
Meusel pumped a hit over the
pitcher's quivering reach. SchanS
then followed by a line lash down
the right-field line that drove Bob
Meusel to third as Wally slid in
safety to second base. 7
Blood Is Whiffed.
The slaughter was about to take
place after all. The crowd scented
the first whiff of blood and after
the manner of all crowds upon such
an occasion one of these wild,
roistering roars .beat back id forth
across the field. Scott had made
a brave start, but he was now
standing on the rim of doom. Yankee
bats were back again and the tide
was running their way.
In a flash Huggins lifted Aaron
Ward, who hadn't been hitting a
lick, to make way for Elmer Smith,
the left-handed hitter with the
tagle's eye. Since Scott was break
ing up, ( one more heavy shot would
tie the count and drive John Wil
liam from the reservation to seek '
his solace under the cooling shower
:nd think how closely he lad come
to beating his way back to the
fashionable marts of his trade.
But as we suggested .lust above j
there was nothing the matter, with I
John Scott's heart. Facing . Elmer
Smith he looked as cool as a thin
slice, of cucumber on- ice.'' lie must
. have known that his attempted
comeback -would be about ended by
another blow as McQuillan was
warming; up In centerfield.
Interest Is Breathless.
The second largest crowd that
ever saw a world series game in
the Polo grounds sat in breathless
interest as Smith took his place at
fat while Scott, taking his time
looked the batter pver before hand-
' ing over the first strike. Three
balls followed and then Scott turned
on two perfect strikes and Smith
stalked back to the bench as 38,000
voices paid their tribute to a good
arm and a game heart.
But Scott had another Scott to
handle and the Yankee deacon Is no
piker in a pinch. This time he. too,
was helpless as Bancroft threw him
out and the Yankee rally went to
This was the only tlm through
out the battle when the Yankees
ever threatened to spoil the story of
a derelict turned into a man of
war. They never had a chance
against the combination of Giant
pitching and - Giant infield play,
where Groh, Bancroft and Frisch
continued to back up their pitching
mate with an impregnable defense.
Four hits, only two of which were
bunched, tells the story of Scott's
greatness and the second Yankee
defeat. For the Yanks were beaten
in that third inning when none
other Uian our hero, viz: John Will
iam Scott, led off with a single to
Hcyt's astonished disgust. Ward
booted Bancroft's hard low ground
er into left and Scott, by unexpected
speed, raced on,- to third. Gron
grounded to Hoyt and Scott was
run down, but Bancroft and Groh
kept on running ..until they reached
third and second, waiting- for a hit.!
Frisch scored Bancroft with a long I
sacrifice fly and Irlsn Meusel's busy j
bat scored Groh with- all the runs
Scott needed to complete his day of
triumph. I
Hoyt yielded another tally in the
seventh before Sam Jones replaced
him in the eighth, but the battle
was already oVer. It was . over
when Bancroft scored the first run
as far back as the third, although
no one except the Giant pitcher
seamed to know It then. The beauty
of Scott's pitching-was the perfect
ease and lack of effort which stayed
with him all the afternoon. He
knew that ninetenths of those
present expected his complete demo
lition at almost any moment.
BIOMom Blooms Again.
He knew that the message had
gone forth that, after Nehf and
Barnes, the Giants had no one left
to stop the Yankee attack which
was now about due to. resume its
chorus from the opera of Swat. But
knowing all this the. lanky one from
the Carolina pines proved that the
broken blossom was blooming again
in the garden of the game s acclaim.
Scott had not only stopped the
Yankees, but there came, another
dent for the soft and yielding jope
in tne Giants heavy assault upon
Waite Hoyt, who only a year ago
naa stopped them effectively at al
most every turn. They socked Hoyt
with care-free, abandon, bunching
their blows in two inningjs. which
usually quite enough when the
other pitcher is turning in a shut
out. Save m a few spicy instances,
the crowd was strangely quiet. It
must have been remembering that
uncalled- outbreak against Judge
L.andis the day before when a head
less mob proved how headless, 'un
fair and cowardly a 'mob can be
when it starts to work. Those in
the big demonstration must have
known the judge had .no part in
the uin; Ire's lack of judgment, but
few mobs ever go far enough to call
upon any function of the brain.
1 Yankee Hopes Dimmed.
As a result of two defeats Yankee
hepes are -dimmed, but they are not
yet entirely crushed to earth. . For
the Yankees today are just where
the Giants were a year ago after
Carl Mays and Waite ' Hoyt had
wrenched away the first two games.
After these two defeats the Giants
then rallied and' fought their way
safely through, winning five of the
Itist six games through superior
strength in the box. The Yankees
still look to have their share of
pitching supremacy left if "Bullet"
Joe Bush can only stand the strain
upon his wounded heel, thereby
proving himself to be a better man
than Achilles from another day.
But so far it must be admitted
that the supposed Yankee margin
11 the box has failed to show up.
Bob Shawkey has turned in- the
best stuff so far from the American
league camp and the best he could
get was a ten-inning draw. Both
Bush and Hoyt were outpitched,
proving again that the dope can
break in more directions than a
piece of shrapnel. Anyway, with
the shorter series, this next game is I
vital affair and -Carl Mays must
drag his ball club back into the
jubilee unless it is to be demolished
in four out tf five games.
Yank Are Doubters on-,
Huggins is almost certain to rush
Mays to the pit while McGraw fig
ures on McQuillan. Ryan Or Nehf.
It may be that McGraw's pitching
staff is weak. It may be that he
has no one around who can hold the
hard-hitting club at hay. But you
can no longer prove this by three
worM's series crowds who have seen
Nehf, Barnes and Scott under fire.
And no one can make the Yanks
believe it. They have been" hammer-I
ing away lor three days now. with
out getting anywhere and the mo
ment has about arrived when they
either start or else stand out as one
of the greatest upsets that ever
overturned the dope, as big an up
set if they are beaten quickly as
the Brave-Athletic series developed
just eight " years ago.

(Special.) There is a new base

Cincinnati, and in the spring he was

Receiver Announces Deal to Get
Rid of Encumbered Property.
TACOMA, Wash.. Oct. 6. (Spe

agreement to take over certain ob
ligations due the state of Washing
ton, 'amounting to approximately
$12,000, has been made for the plant
of -the insolvent Tacoma Speedway
association. Frank A. Neyhart, re

that a date be fixed for a hearing
for the purpose of confirming the!

Wandering to New York, Jack Scott
saw' John McGraw and asked to be
allowed to practice at the Polo
grcunds. McGraw listened sympa
thetically and consented. Scott
went to work alone, unaided, friend
less, patiently trying to get his arm
back. McGraw, watching him day
after day, admired his grit. Mc
Graw always had a fondness for any
man who wouldn't quit. Also the
Giants were badly in ned of pitch
ers. So .on McGraw's suggestion the
club engaged the best doctors avail
able to examine Scott's arm and see
if anything could be done.
Arm Is Doctored.
The report was favorable and the
club spent 15000 in treatments.
Scctt's arm improved so rapidly that
near the end of the season he was
pitching mighty good ball. He won
eight games out of ten. McGraw
signed him on as a regular.
The high spot in today's game
came in the seventh inning. The
Giants had scored two runs early in
the afternoon and were safely de
fending their lead, the Yanks play
ing a spotty game, listless at times,
at times waking up for a spurt.
In the seventh Pipp singled and
Schang cracked out a two-bagger,
advancing Pipp to third. There was
confusion and delay, and finally
.imer Sjmitn, the pinch hitter,
trotted out to bring in a couple of
runs and if possible crack one over
into the bleachers for a homer and
a lead, and Scott calmly curled them
over the plater one, two. three, and
made Smith fan out. As for what
Jack Scott did to Babe Ruth, shoot

them over so-that Babe could get
nothing better than a pop-up when

'erfeet Control Feature of the
Third Game and Thing to Mar

EW YORK, Oct. 6. (By the
Associated Press.) The perfect
control of John Scott, curve ball
pitcher, who several months ago
was thrown into baseball's discard,
was the outstanding feature of the
third game of the world series, ac
cording to McGraw and Huggins
managers . of the Giants and Yan
kees. McGraw, considered the best judge

picKea up scott, a cast-off in mid-
season, said he knew the "deacon
had plenty of stuf. but that his con
trol was a thing to marvel at.
"Catcher Karl Smith told me
saidMcGraw, "that not once during
tne game aid scott tall to put the
ball where he wanted it. His curves
were breaking perfectly, and- after
a couple of innings I just let him
and Smith work as they pleased.'
"I thought that our team should
have counted more runs on their
hits, but with Scott's pitching that
didn't matter. We won and the
credit is all Scott.'s."
Huggins. the Yankee leader, also
praised the Giant pitcher's .work.
"We thought," he said, "that Scott
would bo- easy for us, but his con
trol was too good."
"I think that the error credited
to Ward lost the game for us. It
was a bad ball and 'Ward was
hardly to blame for kicking- it, but
that was one of the Mareaks'."

Groh Bumped, Knocked Down;
Slugger Is Target for Boos
and Hisses Thereafter.
(By Chicago Tribune Leased Wire.)
Beaten, stopped utterly by a busher,
outbatted, outfielded, helpless, the
New York Yankees fell In almos&J
disgraceful style before the Giants
today, losing 3 to 0, while John
Scott, a far-backer from the back
counties of North Carolina, leaped
Into fame.
For the third day these Yanks,
terrors of the American league, the
slaughterers, home1 run champions,
failed utterly and this time, failed
worse than in the other two games.
They did not even offer the Giants
a hard chance. All their boasted
slugging disappeared. They looked
minor leaguish before- the terrific
speed and almost perfect control of
the elongated mountaineer.
Scott "Kink of Broadway."
Scott, tonight, is crowned kink of
Broadway, duke of the buttonhole
makers and earl of the bright lights
and be deserves the honor. He
stepped into the limelight in the
most tense and decisive moment 01;
the series and pitched as if back on
the mountain top at North Carolina.
He was as cool and steady under
tr.e attack of the Yankees as if he
had pitched world's series all his
life. Only once during the battle did
the Yanks have a chance. Then, as
they were striving to break the
nerve of the raw-boned, tall hillite.
with runners on second and third
and one out. and with Elmer Smith
at bat, he put on more of his speed
and struck out the hero of another
world's series.
Frankly. there is something
wrong. . Every hit of the dope is as
it should be excepting the far-famed
Yankee attack. The Giants have
done in each game exactly as they
argued to do. The Yankee pitchers
have pitched almost exactly as they
were doped to pitch: the Giant
pitchers have done better thar. they
were doped to do but the big crash
over the dope is in the Yankee at
tack. If anyone can explain it, the
bewildered Y'ankees want to know.
Hoyt Hit Steadily.
Yet the Giants did not particular
ly shine in attack. They hit Hoyt
steadily, persistently and but for a
weird error by Aaron Ward, they
would have been lucky even to get
a run. It was Ward s error that
gave them their two runs in the
third inning. He was grabbing at a
high, bounder, with an easy double
piay in prospect, when he stumbled,
punted the ball clear past Scott into
left field and a sacrifice and a hit
followed, which yielded two runs.
The other run Hoyt practically pre
sented to the Giants after hope was
abandoned. He pitched carelessly,
as if angry, and the Giants added
one more to their majority. They
ought to have made two, perhaps,
three other runs, but their efforts to
press their openings led to taking
too many chances and they de
stroyed two fine openings.
The excitement of the day was
furnished by Ruth, who fell so far
off his pedestal that he half-buried
himself in the dirt. He took a wild
chance of reaching third in the
fourth inning and. when thrown out
he bumped Groh clear off the dia
mond. The crowd resented his dirty
ball playing and Jeered, booed, hoot
ed and hissed him through the- re
mainder of the battle.
Sarkere Come Oat Again.
In spite of the debacle of yester
day the New York suckers came in
quantities, again packing the unre
served sections long before game
time and taking the edge off the
roar put up by the players against
being cut out of their .share of yes
terday's gate receipts.
The players feared, that the anger
of the fans over the decision of the
umpires to call the game and
the demonstration against .Judge
Landlfi, would reduce attendance.
However, it didn't to any great
extent. The baby cry of the play
ers who feared they might lose a
few dollars may not develop.
The quick action of Judge Landis
and the New York club owners inMcVany came behind him and shot
deeming iw sivc cn; ictpiiPio iu ,

But t;s tragedv
for fe
j charity saved, or at least tempered )
the situation, but the temper 01 the
crowd today waa not nice. The
effort, seemingly studied, to place
the blame on Judge Landis. failed.
The consensus of opinion was that
Hildebrand could not -see whether
it was dark or not. judging from
his ball and strike decisions.
Crowd Wears Cata
The crowd was capacity half an
hour before play started, but it was
different. The diy was cooler. The
spectators wore their coats and for
the first time the background was
fair to hit against.
The Yankees could do nothing
with Scott's fast offerings in the
first . and retired in order. Ruth
almost striking out. Groh and
Frisch hit nice clean singles- off
Hoyt in the Giants' half, but for
once the luck was with the Yankees
and Meusel's half hit line fly went
straight to Ward and resulted in a
double 'piay.
Pipp started the Yankee" second
with a screaming single to right.
tood still while two went out, then
stole second, Smith shooting slow
and wide, and was left when Ward,
with three balls and two strikes, hit
weakly to Bancroft. Scott's low,
fast ball was troubling the Yankees;
In ffct, almost anything the Na
tional leaguers pitch seems to trou
ble them. Y'oung started the Giant
second by dropping a fly into left.
Scott, without a chance to reach
the ball, drove Meusel back from It
and when the ball fell Y'oung made
a wild effort to reach second and
was tossed out by ten feet by Meu
sel. It was well for the Yankees
that h made that attempt, as Cun
ningham hit a scared single over
first later that might have scored
the run. As it was, two nice hits
were wasted.
Witt Polls Boner.
Then Witt got himself into the
Snodgra&s. Heinle Zim class. He
drew a base on balls and, standing a
couple of feet off first, was turned
around talking to some one ai sec
ond base when Smith shot down to
first and caught him standing still,
talking with Frisch. perhape, about
his share of the series money.
John Scott started the trouble for
I Hoyt in the Giants' third by crack-
ing a hit to center ana wnen nn
croft hit sharply at Ward Aaron
thought he was playing football and
punted it to left field so that, in
stead of a double play, runners were
on first and third. Groh hit to Hoyt
and Scott was caught off third. Jock
eying until the runners advanced to
sceond and third and Frlsch's long
sacrifice fly let Bancroft score and
Groh reached third and Irish Meusel
singled to right, sending Groh over
with the second run.
Burlesque Play Keep On.
The burlesoue baseball kept on
in the Yankees fourth when Ruth
was hit by a pitched ball, and with
two. out, started to steal with Scott
holding the ball. Scott, wakened
from his dream, tossed to second.
Ruth retreating to first safely. Then
l-'risch fumbled Meusel's sharp
smash and Ruth, tried to go clear to
third. He was thrown out by 10
feet, but bumred'Groh so hard he
knocked him five feet. Although he
still clung to the ball. Heine wanted
to fight how tho boys have changed
since 1918. Kelley's easy pop liner
fell at Ward's feet 'and he failed to
scoop it. The boys were tired of
scoring errors and gave it a hit.
Kelley tried to steal and was caught.
Smith singled over third. Everyone
of the Giants had a hit then, except
ing Bancroft, who was deprived of
one by the scorers. The Giants were
getting two hits an Inning off Hoyt
and he was lucky to be getting
away as easily as he did.
Frisch drew a pass with two out
in the fifth and was out in a des
perately close decision while trying
to steal, which was all the action In
that inning, except that the crowd
was roaring and booing Kutn at
every move, because of his bumping
of Groh at third.
Hnth Grounds Feebly.
Hoyt opened the sixth with a
rlngle, the second the great an-
xee 'wreckers had made on acott.
but no one else could h't him, the
great Ruth ending with a feeble
counder to Kelley. , !
Young singled for the Giants, but
that was all as Hoyt seemed to be
D''.ehing better
The Yankees failed in the seventh
when it looked as if their, attack
had finally come to something,
Meusel beat out a scratchy single,
I Schang lashed a'hard double across
first.. With runners at second and
third and one out, Elmer Smith Was
sent to the rescue. He had three
balls and two strikes called when
he took two terrific swings at wide
balls and struck out. and in the
pinch Everett Scott hit softly to
Bancroft. John Scott was a seven
inning hero at least.
Hoyt Seems Careless.
With two out In the Giants'
seventh Hoyt seemed careless or
indifferent. He passed Bancroft,
who w-as running when Groh pushed
a hit through to right field. Frisch
followed w-ith a single to right.
That scored Bancroft. The Giants
almost got another, for Meusel's
hot shot went through Pipp, hut
Dack. retiring tne slow runner.
Sam Jones went In to pitch and
Young singled to welcome him
Kelley sacrificed and, after getting
two strikes on Cunningham, Jones
eased up four bad balls, but noth
ing came of it.
The Yanks went feebly and un
fightingly to their doom, beaten and
shut out by a busher

The Beavers made It three In a
row from Salt Lake yesterday In an
other well-played game. The score
was 7 to 1. Among other features
waei another homer over the right
field wall by Jimmy Poole, his sec
ond In two days. James hoisted the
pellet across the extreme center
field end of the fence. Just about as
long and deep a hit aa he could have
made without dropping one Into the
Intensively the home boye played
dashingly behind the fine pitching
of Lefty Leverena. The veteran
never looked better In his life than
he ha done In the last few weeks.
Yesterday the B-e were absolutely
helpless before him. He yielded only
four hits, one of them a scratch sin
gle in the ninth by Paul Ktrand.
Ktrand Adda One.
That hit made Strands total for
the season 273 rlouta by the lateet
unofficial averages. Thus to tie
Hack Miller' mark of !0 hits, made
In 1920. he needs only seven hits; to
tie Jay Klrke's world record of !2
hits he needs only nine eafnles and
to beat it only ten. If he averagee
Just one hit a game for the remain

One of the spectators at the ball
game yesterday who w Intensely
Interested in Strand a effort to set a
new batting mark was I'eacon Van
Buren. a whale of a player In the
good old days. The record books
credit Hack Miller with the Coast
league hitting record on his 2n hits
In 1820. but Van Buren said yester
day that he himself made 2hl bits
while playing with Portland way
back In 190.1. The records for that
xeanon confirm his statement. Ho,
unknown to himself. Van Buren ac
tually held tho world hitting mark
until Jay Klrke went him Just one
hit better last season by clubbing
out 282.
Van Buren played professional
baseball for 20 years and when he
retired at the end of 1914 was sti ill a
good ballplayer. He la building
houses In Portland at present and
looks good enough yet to go out
there and show up some of the
present-day crop of players.

The Beavers scored their runs yes

poling a low pitch over the fence.
The Bees came hack with one In

that was their sum total. After that
Inning they went hitless for five ses
sions, and then Hand s single In the
eighth came with two out.
In the fifth the Beavere clouted
over three more. Brasiil singled
with one down. Hale scored him
with a double and Poole walked,
