July 2S The Braves wen tile final game with the Reds. 2 to 1, l.ut. what a finish! No sympathizer with the IVMon dub. with heart trouble of anv nature, would care to see it or Gilt like .! yitcbell's men. by the hardest kind of t.vrk. ha.! nianagd to scrape ov?r two retir. unt-'Ni the seventh and the other in the nitih. And as. John Scott had ht-J an nir-tight game up to this roh t. it iooked ns if it were going to be ; eisv win for him. He had gotten ,;r of one or two bad holes through tMiiu work in the box and the margin .f t-.vo run; looked as big as a mountain. Th;it ihoy did when the Reds came :r. for their l:wd chance in the ninth. Lute;- thov looked just as big, notwith-t .-.(ling that Jake Daubert, the first cn up. singled to left. Duncan flied : Srv.it hwvrth and Hargrave to Cruise, .ho had taken Nicholsons place in left red Then Sammy Crane came through with a single to right, and the tying run wus on the bases. Pass Forces in a Run -s!cr was rerft in to bat in place ( f Geary and Scott -worked on him until i!r court was three and two. Scott put over what looked like a good strike and Oi. son was on his wg.v to the dressing -.om wh-n Hart called him back .saying that it was the fourth ball, and the hases all full. Harts decision so upset Scott that he passed Neale on four pitched balls, forcing Daubert over the plate. Hinson held the ball and although Scot! begged for it and a chance to continue Gibson shook him off and Mitchell waved to McQuillan, who bad been warming up in the bull pen, to come in and pitch. A base hit meant another defeat for the Braves, an error or another base on balls meant a tie score and probably a win for the Reds, and the buck was passed to McQuillan with a lot of responsibility attached to it. It certainly was a big hole for any pitcher to dig out of. McQuillan got a strike on the first ball pitched, and then began to work on Bohne, who is a mighty dangerous man and who in the second game yesterday had nicked Hughie for a double and a single. The latter worked him to the limit, and the count got down to three and two. Putting all the stuff he had on the next ball pitched. McQuillan put it over. Bohne went after it, and popped up a foul fly for Gibson, for the third out. Whew, what a relief. Both Pitchers In Fine Form It certainly would have been a heag-t- breaker to have lost tiis game, which would have made it three straight de- j fiats, w hen it ought to have been 2 to 1 j for Boston in the series, and it came so ' r,ar to being three straight that the j from the nervous strain of the last few Fti r.nds of the game. However. Pke the defeats in the first two games, the victory in the third has- tuckle the Pirates, on whom a gain of on full game was made, as the Buccos were beaten by the Giants. The pitching on both sides was so good in the pinches today that the fielding chances were only ordinary. I'ny with the stick, driving in both of boston's runs, the first with a single ir.ri the second with a sacrifice fly, -deckel being the man in each case to register at the plate. Ford also got in 3 double. which was wasted ammunition. the first three hits made off Rixey, in the first by Barbare. another in be second by Ford, and still another in t.f fourth by Southworth, were all iloubfis. They made altogether five hit3j n Hppa Jeptha in eight innings, but "n-vT more than one in a single frame. inis was the kind of pitching that" mI?-tuTas ',p against, and although I more hits were made off him than off his rvonent. not a run was made off the I Biston hurler pntil he forced one over I the plate in the ninth inning, after two tut6 0U and after three were really The Braves had a runner In a scoring position in the first inning when with . ne,Put Barbare doubled, but South-: vr.Tu , was thrown out by Crane and i Nicholson fanned, and again in the: second inning when Ford doubled wita l two out, but Gibson flied to Neale.

REDLAND MUSINGS There were several tense moments after two were out irj that ninth Inning. Cruise, batting in place of Nicholson in the ninth, against the right-handed Pitching of Geary, was the victim of a Veat one-handed catch of his foul fly by Bohne. There was a shower this forenoon, but it. failed to lower the temperature and it was very h-ot during the afternoon. Ford is batting better since his nose was broken, but none of the other players are looking to improve their stick, work by the same method and their hitting is mighty puny just now. The Braves bad to make a quick getaway tonight, leaving- Cincinnati for Pittsburg about 7 oclock. There was some, tall Bustling after the game to wash up and get dinner. In the fifth Hargrave led off with a double and he never reached third, Moran putting on the sacrifice play as had Mitchell in the fourth. Crane attempted to sacrifice and failed, Hargrave being run out between second and third. Powell, Barbare and Ford made a fine play on Duncan in the second. Roush beat out a swinging bunt, but was forced at second by Daubert. Jake went to third on Duncans single to right center, and Pat, trying to take second on the throw over, was an easy out when Barbare intercepted Powells throw. Southworth led ofT with a double in tve third and Nicholson was sent in to sacrifice, which looked like a poor play for a free hitter like Nicholson. Nick put Southworth on third where he was left, and the play for one run which never came lofiked cheaper than evei In this session McCormick allowed Bohne to make a decision for him at first on Boeckel, calling Tony out at the suggestion of the Red second baseman, when the Boston man had the throw of Rixey, who knocked downed his hot bounder, beaten by a step. Wingo, who batted for Rixey in the eighth, led oft with a single to center and Kopf was put in to run for him. anti after Neale flied to Powell, Bohne singled to left. With the tying run on second and the winning run on first and only one out, Groh was struck out by Scott and Roush flied to Nicholson for the third out. GIANTS BANG OUT VICTORY IN NINTH PITTSBURG. July 28 The Giants j staged a batting rally In the ninth to- j day and beat Pittsburg, 6 to 4. The Pirates batted Barnes out of the box ; in the third, but Douglas held the home j team safe.

White Sox Profits in Six Years $409,337 CHICAGO, July 28 The defense In the baseball trial rested its case tonight. The action was taken after five Chicago White Sox players, forced by the law to abandon thair team in the East and journey 900 miles to testify, had made statements from the witness stand which tended to disprove some of the most Important points in the State's evidence against their ex-teammates, charged with conspiring to throw the 1919 World Series to Cincinnati. Eddie Collins. Ray Schalk. Dick Kerr, Roy Wilkinson and Manager William Gleason of the White Sox testified at a night session of court that the seven explayers on trial were at Redland Field, Cincinnati, practicing from 10 to 12 a m the day before the first 1919 Worlds Series game. Bill Burns had testified that it was on this day and at these hours that he completed the alleged deal with the defendants, whereby they were to throw games in order desired for $100,000, receiving $20,000 after each game thrown. Tomorrow the State will begin Its rebuttal testimony with indications that Judge Friend may order Saturday and night sessipns of court in the hope of getting the case to the jury this week or the first part of next week. Kid Gleason on Stand The testimony of the players who are said to have been double-crossed by the men for whom they were testifying was brief, each man being asked the same questions by the defense attorneys who had subpened them, thus forcing them to take part in the trial, whether they wished to or not. Manager Gleason said he left Chicago with his team Monday night, two days before the first game. We reached Cincinnati about 8 a m. said Gleason, and went to the Sinton Hotel. A little before 10 the men went to Redland Field for practice. We got back to the hotel a little before noon. Gleason said he thought Weaver was practice, and was sure Felsch, Ris-berg, Gandil, Williams, Jackson and Cicotte, the other player-defendants, were there. They werent in the Sinton, then, at the hours Burns says he talked with them? asked Tom Nash, defense attorney. 1 think not, said Gleason. Sure All Were at Park Schalk said he believed all the defendants were at practice, as he had not missed any of them. Eddie Collins, Ray Wilkinson and Dick Kerr were sure ail were present, arrd Collins said he an! Weaver left the park together and went to the races together that afternoon. Schalk then was called as a State witness. Did you see some of the defendants (together in a room the evening of the second game? asked George Gorman Of the prosecution. 1 did, but 1 cant remember what room, was the reply. Burns had testified as to another meeting that night. All the players were asked if they had an opinion as to whether the defendants played to the best of their ability, but the- States objections to answers were sustained. Dick Kerr was indignant over being called to Chicago for two minutes of testimony. And I rode 900 miles on the hottest day of the year to say that, he muttered as he walked past the defendants without looking at them. The closing of the defense case was announced withe ut warning and with a score of witnesses waiting to testify. Surprise for Prosecution The State tonight refused to say what witnesses it would put on tomorrow in rebuttal, admitting that it had been surprised by the defense move. Whether the defense will carry out its plan of putting on the defendants during rebuttal was not known. The defense this afternoon presented hotel records to show that Chick Gandil was not living at the Warner Hotel during the 1919 World Series. Burns testified he conferred with him there. The financial secrets of the Chicago American League Baseball Club, always guarded zealously, were revealed in the trial today, the clubs books showing a ret profit of $409,337 during the past six years, more than $225,0t0 of this coming in 1920. Harry Grabiner, secretary of the club, brought the records into court at the request of the defense, which wanted to prove by them that the alleged sellout of the White Sox players in the 1919 Worlds Series had not injured he ciub. The figures showed gross receipts of $2,022,858 for the six years. Orabiners testimony also showed the tremendous expense of a major league club, ranging from more than $225,000 in r.l" to nearly $706. ovi 1920. The following table shows the receipts and profits or loss from 1915 through 1920: Year Gro Receipts 3920 $910. 3ftft Net Profits 225.013 110,015 51.673 70.020 40.350 13,803 1019 1018 1917 1016 1915 668.332 128,310 468 014 325.324 241,586 Loss. Total receipts, $2,622,858; total profits, $109,337. The figures included $S7,000 for the Worlds Series of 1919; $86,COO for the 1917 series. Comiskeys Salary $50, COO - Charles A. Comiskcy, president of the club, draws or cnnual salary of $50,000, Grabiner testified. Previous to Grabiner s testimony the defense called John Ccllins and Harry Leibold, ex-White Sox player-J. new with the Boston Red Sox, and Walter Ruether, who pitched for Cincinnati in the 1919 World's Series. It had been planned to have these men tell whether they thought the 1913 series was on the square. Lut the State raised so many objections that they were withdrawn, after being asked if they had an opinion on the matter. Attorneys for Carl Zork cf St Louis presented numerous witnesses whose testimony was intended to offset that given against him. Picks Up Man Who Poesnt Even Know Who Babe Ruth Is While motoring through Wbitins-ville yesterday, Frank Doherty of Allston, an ex-semiprofessional baseball player of note, ran across a $nan who didnt know who Babe Ruth was. Doherty picked up his passenger on the road and was giving him a lift when he found out that the man was an able bodied seaman. His companion remarked that at one time he was in a reform school, and Doherty informed him that he had nothing to worry about, because Babe Ruth was at one time in a reform school. Then his passenger asked, "Who is Babe Ruth? H. M. ABfcAHAMS 00ya!s: too 440 880 1-MIIe 3-Mile Hurdles .... Shotput P Hammer Throw ....O Broad Jump High Jump Cor C Cambridge, O Oxford ; P Princeton.

TRAVERS ISLAND, N Y, July 28 The International track meet between the Oxford-Cainbridge teams of England and the Princet on-Corn ell teams was officially declared a tie tonight after a previous official decision, declaring the Britons the winners, had been reversed. Each team scored five first places. The British team took 51& second places to the Americans 4, there being a tie for second place in the high Jump. At a conference of officials and team captains after the meet, it was decided that England was the winner in accordance with the rules that applied last week at the Britons meet with the Yale-Harvard combination. First Ruling Reversed Later, however, another conference took place and it was brought out that when arrangements for todays contests were being made by cable it was agreed that the rules governing the Oxford-Princeton meet at the Queens Club, England, last year should govern todays events. Under those rules second places did not count in the final score. After the meet the two teams and the officials motored to Portchester, where they were given a dinner at the Blind Brook -Club. Excitement in the crowd was highest when the athletes went to the mark in the last event, the half-mile, because a victory in this event would have meant the winning of the meet for America. Rudd, by winning, caused a tie in the. matter of first places, and Milligan, who ran second, beating Johnson of Princeton less than six inches, gave the English athletes an advantage in second places. America won the 16-pound shotput, high jump, 440-yard dash, 120-yard high hurdles, three-mile run. England won the 100-yard dash, the mile run, lG-pound hammer throw, broad jump and half-mile run. 1 Forseman Wins Long Run The sensation of the meet came in the three-mile event when Forseman of Princeton, a mere stripling, ran Sea-grove, Englands star distance man, off his feet. No less than 10 times during the run Forseman and Seagrove alternated in the lead. In the last lap Forseman drew away to win by a good ' margin. In a desperate effort to over-j take the Princeton lad, Seagrove sprinted j the last 50 yards and collapsed in the ; arms of a teammate, Noltes of Oxford, j Nokes set a new international intercol-! legiate record for the hammer throw, heaving the ball 160ft 7in on his last attempt. Abrahams of Cambridge was the individual star, winning the 100-yard dash and the broad jump. Rudd, captain of the English team and 400-meter Olympic champion, was beaten -in the 440-yard clash by Stevenson of Princeton. The summary : 106-YARD DASH lVon by II. M. Abrahams, Cambridge; F. K.

SIDELIGHTS OF THE GAME Mails or Caldwell will perform in the box for the Indians this afternoon ana Allan Russell is expected to be Hugh Duffys choice for the Red Sox.

Speaker, Wood and Mails of Cleveland went out into the country to pass the evening, Wednesday. As a result of their trip they are nursing innumerable mosquito bites. That one-handed glove stab by Stuffy Mclnnis off Johnstons bat in the eighth was a bird and the crowd gave the Gloucester boy a great hand. Vick came r.eir putting the ball over i the fence in the .fourth. It hit the urper ' part of t;ie pr.-field signboard j - arid went for a double.
