THE LETIIBRIDGE .-DAILY Thursday, Jnl.rSMQ.il. IJCTHBRIDGE BALL TEAM ON TOP S-POR-T-S COBB AND WAGNER IN THE LEAD TABER OUTCLASSED RAYMOND EASILY Visitors Were Late in Arriving and Short Game was Played--McComas Pitched Invincible Ball and Shut Opponents Out Taber, July evidently knew what they were going to get Vhen they reached Taber, as they failed to put in an appearance till noarly halt past seven. That only -live innings were played is entirely fault the visitors and is likely to their advantage, as if the game Tiad been played in full, it Is more ;ihan likely that the score piled up (by the home team would have been taueu greater. The game started just ifter seven thirty, and the Sugar (Beets were sure easy pickings for 'Ihe Taher boys. H is almost unneces- sary to describe the game fully, as it was a runaway- for the'home team :Jrom the start. Raymond were the 'first to bat, aud were soon disposed Taber crossed the plato tv.-ice in Hlie first, finding O'Brien several tiro- lies, and in the second the home bunch six safe hits, scoring five runs. i'After this Raymond seemed to pick Kip a little, but could do nothing against 'the delivery of McComas, who had :them going all tlie time. After the '-second Raymond never had a ghost a chance, and in the fifth Taber scored one more run, after whjch the N -game was called on account of dark- less, ending S to 0. Although the crowd was not as big as might have been 'expected, the fans present had time of their lives. When it be- came known that Hawk, the man who umpired the Taher-Lethbridge game, was playing, the joy of the crowd knew no bounds, and they went aftor Hawk, and probably got more satisfaction getting his goat than they got out of the game. When in the eT--mwirofri'iis pins, the crowd re- joiced. was umpired by Birch, who gave splendid satisfaction. The game p.uts Taber in the lead for league honors, and it is the opinions of the fans here that 1 ethbridge should default to Raymond for the game which should have been played last Saturday, as earlier in the season Lethbridge was very anxious that Ravmond should default to Caird- ston which, they did, the cause being the same. Tonight Taber were on their mettle, and showed what they were capable of doing, their playing being full of snap, with very. few errors. .The following is the line-up: rf.; Edwards If.; Barbour, cf.; Glendenning, ss.; H. Lee, Cook, 2b.; Judson, 3b.; A. Lee c.; McComas, p. rf.; -Campbell, U'.; Brcwerton, cf.; Hicken, ss.; Powell, lb.; Hawk, 2b.; R. O'Brien, 3b.; Skajl- son, c.; C. O'Brien, p: Raymond Taber The game that Lethbridge should have played at Raymond Saturday lias not been claimed by the Ray- mond club but .will be played off next Saturday, so that Taber is not In the lead. Lethbridge, by the way was of- fering no objection to itaymoud claim- ing the game, if they had any desire to--'do1'so; Lethbridge club did ask Raymond to consider the case of a pure accident in the light of fairness.- The Raymond-Cardstou case is certainly not identical with this one. Western Canada League Games PITCHER TWIRLED GREAT BALL Winnipeg, July to hit Syfert safely spelt defeat for roons runniug'off a G to 1 vic- tory. Syfert twirled beautiful ball, only 29 men facing him and only four men Reached first during the same, and'two of them were doubled up. The locals did- not hit Reeves very hard but their clouts were mixed in Brandon's misplays. The score: Brandon 000 000 Winnipeg 100 103 the fourth, anil followed up in the sixth with two runs, and won the game by the score of 5 to 3. Pete Standridge was the hero of the fans again. He not only pitched gilt- edge ball, but leaned against the ball s'cored Streib, tying the score and then again In the seventh was scored by 0TBrien's double, which decided the game in our favor. Score by Hose Jaw -...........300. 000 Calgary .......'..'.'.'...101 102 CALGARY GOT BACK AT'THE DUSTY MILLERS Calgary, July the double defeat, of the day before, the fans were somewhat dubious of the result they travelled to Victoria Park yesterday, and their fears seemed to have been pretty well grounded when JIoosc Jaw pounded out three hits in the first inning, but the Matstanleyltes came up from behind, got a run in both the first and third, tied the score in Shrewd Manager of the Athletics Has an Eye for the Future Philadelphia, July ho is piloting tlie present world's cham- pions and expects to be in another series nest fall, Connie Mack already Is planning Ills series of recalls and purchases for Ibis fall. He doesn t know of any spots that need strength- ening though his pitching staff doesn't entirely suit him. he is ping to look over some youngsters aud will de- cide early in August just which of the men that lie is now watching ami that practically belong lo him though un- tier contracts to other clubs, be desires to call in. .Mack has a line on more youngsters than any other manager in the co.un- try and also has them planted in more leagues developing for him and still his property, though he may not have seen them in a year or two than any other employer in major league ball. Has Their Records He prefers the little red schoolhouse to bush league, yet he is not insensible to the wealth of ore found on the cross- roads and minor, league teams. .Mr. Mack can go to the club office and con- sult his files and find out how many hits Harry Krausemeyer third baseman of Shinelielmer, Kjippenklelster and Tappanbanger's Sticky Fly Paper com- pany's team at Laxvillo, Ala. made last week. Connie also can tell what team is leading in the Sunday school league of Ingersoll. Neb. and knows that Pagan the Primitive Methodists' star pitcher has a great drop and might be worth a trial in 1913 or 1914. It is a fact that Connie .Mack has iiny number of youths planted who are hardly old enough to leave their fire- sides. Two years ago, 'nt the age of IB a Philadelphia schoolboy signed a contract to play with Mack. This tall tactician may wait two years more before ordering this juvenile south with his team. Plants for Four Years Peters the California first baseman who just joined the Athletics lias been planted by Mack for several years. For fear tliat he' might he extradited to California on the charge of kidnap; ing. Alack didn't dare, order the infant to report until this spring. Mack has youths planted for deliv- ery to 1912. 1913; 1914 and 1915. He will call them as he needs them, but every year he is sure of squad of candidates in case some calamity strikes his team. No manager in j America looks as far ahead -as the (Athletic master mind. Baseballdoui thought it wonderful vhen Mack took a team of nobodies n 1909 and finished second to Detroit, that year tossed posies, at Mack or getting a good team together so quickly, but they didn't know that Mack was planning for 1909 in 1907. EDMONTON GOING BACK Edmonton; "July; the 'sloppi- est bill game seen this yea-r in Ed- monton, Saskatoon took both games of a double header from the local team today. The only features of the con- test were. the errors, a total of .ten being piled up in the afternoon and fourteen in the evening. The play- ing of both teams was of tile rankest kind and the second contest, degener- ated into a joke before the finish. Score by Saskatoon ....130 120 15 17 Edmonton ..411 000 647 Would Hand it toThisRoudy The assault of Shewood Magee star Philly. outfielder, upon Umpire Pin- neran at Philadelphia.last week is the chief topic of: conversation' in big league circles.' Some writers go as fai- ns to demand that Magee be forever barred from baseball, while others, chiefly Philadelphlans, excuse Ma- gee's act, citing the well known ner- vousness of the player. Finnaran's in- competency and an oath alleged to have been hurled at the player by the Indicator man just before the assault. Sid Mercer writing in the New York Globe states that with Magee out of the game the Phillies have absolutely no chance of winning tlie National league pennant, as practically all of their attack revolves around the league's premier slugger. The trouble has brought Horace Fogel, Philly boss into the limelight again in an unenviable many writers-blaming Fogcl for Magce's ac- lon.- .The. man who poses as the of Doolin's crew leads Ihe knocking against arbitiators EDMONTON PLAYERS GIVEN THEIR RELEASE Edmonton, July White, nanaser, tonight after the poor sliow- ng-'ih the game witli Saskatoon re- eused Shortstop Brennan and Centre- ielder Lussi, and fined Baxter, .pitch- er, for what he believed lo be .hell; laying down in recent games.
