BROOKLYN STILL LEADS
By H. C. Hamilton
(Cnited Press staff correspondent)
Ebbcts Field, Brooklyn, :vT Y., Sept.
30. The Brooklyn Dodgem regained
their lead in the National league this
afternoon by beating Orover Alexan
der, putting the Phillies to rout and
bagging the second game of the day
by a score of 0 to 1.
The Dodger hammered tho star box
man of the Phillies to all corners of
the field. Stengel's homo run in the
fourth inning started the trouble and
Alexander wag not able to stop the
. Rube Marquard twirled a remarkable
game, holding the Phillies to three hits.
The Phillies .lost the services of thoir
star shortstop, Bancroft, who was in
jured in the morning game and who
was forced to quit in the second.
Brooklyn now leads the National
league by one point and will tackle the
Giants Monday in a four gnmo series
while the Phillies take on Boston.
Morning Oame -
.The Phillies jumped into first place
in the gripping race for the National
league pennant when they beat the
Brooklyn Dodgers 7v to 2 in the morn
ing gnmo of a two ply bill scheduled
for today. .. . '
With lOppn.Kixey pitching gilt edge
ball for them and holding the Brook
Unites at. bay, the' Phillies smashed
through the Dodger defense, laced out
ten clean hits otf Jeff Pfeffer and
simply steam rolled their way into n
halt' game lend over Wilbert Kobin
sun 's men.
Five hits wns tho .total output of
sties, work by the Dodgers, and on this
quintet of swats, combined with three
errors by the. Phillies they were able
to work only two men across tho plate.
Only about 3,000 fans turned out to
witness the breakfast game between
the struggling pennant contenders. A
bright sun wns shining but the weather
wns decidedly ioothnllish. '

Sox practically cinched the Auiericnn
league pennant, nnd mane it certain
the wurst they can get is n tie for
first place this afternoon when they
took a hard fought ten inning guine
from New York, 1 to 0. If Boston should
lose all the rest of their games, 'ami
Chicago make a clean sweep, the teams
wou'.d be tied for the pennnnt. The
White Sox, by winning a double head
