THE PITTSBURG- 'DISPATCH; SATURDAY, OCTOBER-" 5,188?.-
THEI HADTHE LUCK,
Fortune Payors the Bostons
and They Beat Our Boys.
THE CONTEST A TOUGH ONE
Uew York Also Wins and To-Day
Will Settle the Pennant.
CAPTAIN AKSON VERY BADLYflORT
The CMcagos Once More. Step Up Intotbe
GENERAL BASEBALL KEWS OP THE DAT
Boston once more defeated the home play
ers, but in a very- lucky way. New York
also won, and the games to-day will settle
the pennant straggle. Chicago is again in
third place. Captain Anson met with a
serious accident on the ball field. He and
Schriver, of Philadelphia, were badly hurt
If ever there was an exciting ball game
in this city, yesterday's contest between the
home team and the Bostons was the event,
and no mistake abont it. It was war to the
knife, and every inch of ground was con
tested with all the art and strength that the
two opposing nines could coumand. True,
the visitors had more at stake than the home
players, but that did not prevent the latter
from putting forth every possible effort to
come out victorious. They did not do it,
but the aspiring champions from Boston
will never have such a close shave again
without suffering defeat. Oh! it was close,
and doubtless the Bostons bad given up the
contest as a bad affair before victory favored
t If the Bostons win the pennant to-day they
may thank that venerable old lady. Dame
Fortune, for it. If ever good fortune blessed
the efforts of a ball team it did so with the Bos
tons yesterday. Not that tbey do not play
good ball On the contrary, they p'.ayed
A r-EMJLT.KABLE GAME,
and so did the home players, except at one or
two critical stages. These mistakes gave the
visitors the game. For instance, In the ninth
inning Sunday was on third base and nobody
out, and, as fortune would have it, Sun
lap knocked a liner right into Nash's
hands, who caught Sunday off tbo base
thereby effecting a double play. It is more
singular still that Nash was playing near third
to try ard catch Sunday napping by the aid of
Madden. Had Sunday not been thus singularly
put out he could have easily scored on Staley's
long fly to Richardson. And what is more, the
visitors ought not to have made a run in the
ninth. Deacon White's most daring mistake
allowed them to get a run in, and win the
game. After all this, who can say it was not a
fortunate day for Boston. However, it is use
less to cry over spilt milk, because after all
these things are in tne fortunes of baseball.
The Bostons were placing for the pennant.
Tbey have a slight hold of it and thev wanted
to get it entirely to themselves. Probably
never a nine jilajcd more earnestly for a victory
than did tbe Beancaters j estcrday, and if they
win the prize to-day they deserve it. If they
don't win it they are no less worthy of credit
and acknowledgement. Eery effort they could
possibly command was called into action yes
terday and they did brilliant work.
ABE STILL SECOND.
Of course their victory did not put them
ahead ot New York, so that as far as these two
teams are concerned they are in the same posi
tion as they were on Thursday. If both teams
win to-day the pennant is the New Yorks'.and if
the latter lose then Boston will own the flag.
The weather was miserably cold and only the
most intense love and patriotism for baseball
could prompt tbe 1,200 or 1,300 enthusiasts to sit
and shiver through the frame. The excitement
tended to keep v, arm blood circulating rapidly
through one's veins, but still the weather was
very unfavorable. It was damp and chilly all
day. .Much to the surprise of everyboay pres
ent Clarkson took a rest and Mad
den went in to pitch. The "Kid,"
however, was not a soft snap by
anv means, as only in one inning did tbe
local sluggers take any liberties with him.
With the exception of that inning he pitched a
ureal game. But Ins support was marvelous.
It seemed impossible for the home players to
knock a ball into any part of the outfield that
the fielders could not reach. Johnston, in the
ery first inning, electrified everybody by run
ning a long distance and catching a ball that
Miller Knocked witnin a few feet ot the top ot
the fence. The catch was really one of tbe
most remarkable seen here. Kelly and Rich
ardson also did excellent work, and saved their
little pitcher two or three long hits.
STALEY WAS ALL EIGHT.
Staley pitched a good game, and it was not
his fault that the game was lost The big
hitters were far from being at home with him.
He was, however, responsible for one of the
runs made. Excepting White's error the in
field did welL
The visitors tallied the first rnns in tbe third
inning. Bennett led off with a two-bagger to
left held and Madden followed, knocking the
ball in front of Staley. The latter fnmbled it
long enough, however, to allow Madden to land
safely on first and Bennett on thiid: Bennett
scored onJRichardson's long fly to Sunday, and
Kelly made a single, sending Madden to third.
Mike stole second and Madden scored on
In tbe next inning the home players raised
tbe enthusiasm of the crowd to bulling point
by going the Bostons one better. Had it not
been tor a little stupidity the result would have
been at least two better than Boston. After
Rowe bad knocked a fly out to Quinn. BecUey
whizzed the ball down the right foul line for
three bases. White followed with a single to
center, scoring Bcckley. Fields followed with
a donble to left. White reaching third. Hanlon
was then hit by a pitched ball, and tbe bases
were filled with only one man out. Sunday
made a scratch hit and White scored amid the
most tremendous shouts ever heard on tbe
grounds. Dunlap came next, and tbe bases were
still fall. He knocked the ball into right field,
and it looked safe, but Kelly caught it. Fields
at once started for home, and Kelly threw the
ball to Madden.
THERE WAS A KICK.
Sunday, however, had slipped down in re
turning to his base and was thrown out at first
according to the umpire, although tbe decision
was an extremely close one. This retired the
sjde and a tremendous argument ensued about
Fields' run. At first the umpire declared it
would count and then Kelly kicked. Subse
quently Powers seemed to be inclined to re
verse bis decision and Hanlon took him in
hand. After a long argument between the
two the umpire counted tbe run and then more
cheers went up. Fields was certainly across
the plate before Sunday was out.
In the fifth inning tbe visitors started ont
quite merrily. Madden knocked a double to left
field, and Richardson followed suit, scoring
Madden and tying the score. Kelly's sacrifice
advanced Richardson to third, and Nash
knocked a liner to Beckley. The latter canght
it, and made a donble play by throwing Rich
ardson ont at third. The eighth inning was ex
tremely exciting, though not a run was made.
Nash led off the second half with a single to
left, and Bronthers sent him to third by another
single. Brouthcrs then stole second. John
ston knocked the ball to Rowe, who retnrnei it
to Miller, and Nash was put out between third
and home. Qulnn then knocked the ball to
Staley. who returned it to Miller, and Bronth
ers was put out between third and home after
considerable dodging. Smith then retired the
Tbe score was tied at the ninth inning. Sun
day led off and bunted the ball successfully to
Nash. The latter, however, threw wild to
first and Sunday sprinted around to third.
Dunlap. however, knocked the ball into Nash's
hands, and tbe latter caught Sunday off third.
Staley retired the side by a long fly to Richard
son. For Boston, Bennett led off with a single
and Madden followed with a scratch hit.
Richardson flew to Sunday and Kelly knocked
a grounder to Rowe. The latter threw the ball
to White to catch Bennett at third. Tbe
Deacon, however, dropped tbe ball and Ben
nett was safe. Nash struck out and Brouthers
brought In the winning run by a single to left.

ANSON BADLY HURT.
He and Schriver Collide on the Field With
Chicago, October 4. A serious accident
happened on the National League baseball
grounds this afternoon. In practice, just prior
to tbe calling of play, Delehanty, of tbe Phila
delphia, batted a fly directly over bis head
which went very high in the air. Schriver.
who stood at the side of Delehanty, prepared
to catch it on its descent. Anson, of the CbJ
cagos, was standing at first base, and, seeing
the ball go into the air, started on a swift run
for it also.
Delehanty, seeing him coming, exclaimed:
"Look out. Captain, look out!" Ansun did not
heed the caution, but kept on. colliding with
Schriver, the shock felling them both to the
ground. Both had to be assisted to arise and each
was carried to a hotel. Late reports are that
Anson has sustained a very bad fracture of tbe
jaw, while Schriver has a severely disfigured
forehead and his right eye is cut, It is feared
To-Dny's Great Home Game.
To-day's game at Recreation Park will be tbe
last championship game of the season here. It
will be an eventful game, as if Pittsburg wins
Boston will have no chance whatever for the
pennant. Clarkson will pitch for Boston, and
probably Galvin for Pittsburg.

fought than that of the first race. Fordham

Middletown, N. Y., October 4. James
Skelly came here about three years ago,
from Fishkill. where he has an aged mother
and other relatives living. He was a hat
finisher, and fell in love with Carrie Greer,
a very estimable and good-looking girl,
daughter of a Sullivan county farmer. The
girl stipulated that before marriage he must
conquer drink. Skelly made the pledge
again and again, but as often broke it.
A day or two 3go, after quite a season, of
abstinence, Skelly again broke his pledge to
his betrothed, and when he called to see-ber
she reproved him sharply. When a iriend
entered his room this morning, he found
Skelly dead in bed. 'Near him was an
empty vial which had contained prussic acid.
