championship series on the old Tri-
Btate groundh on Island Park yes
terday, Marysville, Dauphin-Perry
League champs, scored one lone
tally, which later proved enough to
swing the score in Marysvllle's fa
By virtue of her victory of yester
day, Marysville now has the edge on
the series with two victories and one
defeat. The fifth game and what
may be the deciding one of the
series, will be staged on the Island
Park grounds to-morrow afternoon
at 5.15.
Yesterday's crowd was fully the
equal of the one which thronged the
field last Saturday to see the two
teams perform. Both bleachers were
packed, the grandstand was filled
and fans lined the fence in both
right and left field, both in and
outside. The returns of the game
of yesterday was approximately the
same as in the third game.
Bievcr Is Big Star
Harry Biever, Marysville's veteran
hurler, opposed Strieker for the
fourth time in the series, and again
outpitched his more youthful op
ponent. Fourteen West End bats
men whiffed the air on his slants,
one of them getting to first when
Hippensteel dropped the third
strike. Not a single runner got to
third and but one to second. Three
ndditional men died on first. Shafer,
the only West End batsman to reach
second, did so on successive singles
by himself and Embick in the
seventh, but was anchored on the
keystone sack when Palmer fanned
and Tim Euker flied to Herman at
first. Not a single batsman was
passed by Biever and but five hits
were collected off his delivery.
Strieker pitched a sterling game
for West End. But five bingles were
made off his delivery, two of these
being bunched in the eighth when
the single Marysville tally was scor
ed. He was not quite as steady as
Biever and issued one pass, the
fourth of the series, to "Chick" But
ter, Marysville's third sacker, who
has worked Strieker for each of
the Marysville passes. Nine bats
men fanned the air.
Both pitchers were accorded good
♦support, with the Marysville outfit
playing the steadier game. West
End made its first error of the series
in the fourth inning when "Bill"

Shafer muffed Gerdes' drive and af
ter that two other misplays were
recorded against tho West End con
tingent. But one misplay was scored
against Marysville, an error being
recorded against Hippensteel when
he dropped a third strike and allow
ed a man to get to third.
Sensational Fielding
Sensational fielding marked the
contest. "Monk" Gerdes, whose hit
drove in Marysville's inning run,
likewise featured in the field. Five
chances, several of them of an es
pecially difficult variety, were field
ed faultlessly by the clever short
Tim Euker. West End's center
fielder , brought down the crowd on
two occasions by spearing drives
which appeared to be labeled for
hits and which would have meant
more Marysville runs. In the eighth
he caught a high fly off Rutter's bat
in deep left center and in the ninth
he made a spectacular catch off
Biever's fly, just over the infield.
Joe Lightner, Marysville's hard
hitting center fielder who had not
been hitting the ball in the series,
apparently recovered his batting eye
yesterday and drove out two of
Marysville's five hits. "Bill" Shafer,
West End's hard working third
sacker, secured three of the up
town contingent's five hits.
Prior to the start of the game,
Marysville was presented with a sil
ver loving cup from the A. J. Reach
Company through Shenk and Tittle,
of this city. The presentation speech
was made by President E. E. Knauss.
The cup was accepted In behalf of
the Marysville outfit by tho Rev.

Notes of the Game
Base running figured largely In the
scoring of Marysville's lone tally. Af
ter Rutter had gone out on a hard
chance to left center, Moore singled
into left. Moore pilfered second and
went to third when Kline threw out
Joe Lightner drove a short hit into
center field.
But two stolen bases were recorded
yesterday, both of those going to
Marysville. Both were recorded In
the eighth when Moore and Gerdes
went down to second.
Shafer, the lone West End inan
who had not whiffed in the series,
fanned in the fourth inning yester
day. He reached first, however, when
Hippensteel dropped the third strike. j
Harry Wagner, star Newport out
fielder who was with the Engineers
and Firemen in the West End league,
but has been used by West End in
both of the post-season series, was
benched in the sixth yesterday, after
fanning twice. Embick was used in
his stead.
"Leger" Stees of Marysville robbed
himself of a hit in the fifth. After
hitting a slow bounder down the first
base line, he ran into the ball when
half way between home and first.
Rutter, Marysville's third sacker,
whose fielding has featured the series
had but one chance yesterday. Inci
dentally he drew another pass oft
Strieker, his fourth of the series, he
being the only Marysville batsman to
get a pass in tho series.
W. Euker drew the sole pass issued
by Harry Biever in the series. He
was granted free transportation as
the first West End batsman in the
first game of the series.

Eggie Fetrow are the new additions.

Pitchers Walk Babe Ruth;
Fear Home-Run Hitter
Boston, Sept 19. Babe Ruth,
much against his will, will set up &
new record for American League
pitchers in walking this season, be
ing due to draw more than one hun
dred passes. He already has been
the recipient of eighty-two and al
most every one of them was handed
to him with malice aforethought.
The gents off whom the Bostonlan '
made his homers probably wish they
had adopted safety first tactics when
they were pitching to him, though
not all of George Herman's four
baggers have come in games that
were Red Sox triumphs.
Some baseball editors have been
besieged with queries as to how
many times Ruth has been purposely
walked this year, the answer being
easy, because mighty few of the
gifts he has received came to him
because of lack of aim on the part
of the artillerists.
It can be put down as a positive
certainty that seventy of the bases
on balls awarded to Ruth during
the current campaign have been is- I
sued under instructions.
