The big Polish spitballer let down
the hopes of 1' tat bush with five scat
ter ed hits, holding the game in is
hollow hand' from mart to finish.
Against tho American league hurler
was Marauard, veteran of five world
series. Kube acquitted himself like
the experienced, capable twirler he la.
and suffered very little in comparison
with his victorious rival.
A pop fly that was played with by a
prankish wind at the start of the sec
ond inning paved the way for Mar
guard's downfall. Konetchy lost it in
a gale and upon recovering It, threw
wild to second in an effort to nip its
perpetrator. Burns. The latter scor

Despite a chilling wind sweeping the
field, the game was as tight as a drum

netchy's error in the cond, which
from an analytical point of view, may
have lost the game, ws the only mis-
play during the entire nine innings.
Sparkling fielding stunts abounded.
Young Sewell at short in the place of
the lamented Ray Chapman," played a
valiant game when one considers the
tension under which he must have la
bored in the circumstances. He was a
trifle unsteady with throws but ac-
qu.tted himself in first class fashion
and delivered a hit .
A catch by Griffith in the fifth in
ning when the Rrooklynite leaped
against the right field wall to pull
down Speaker's drive was the high
water mark of the game frcm the
fielding angle. Speaker made two
brilliant catches which nipped threat
ening Brooklyn rallies. Brooklyn fans
