McCarthy of Storehouse Gives Many
Costly Bases on Balls and Has
From Thursday's uaily.
The game between the Coach Shcp
and the Storehouse teams of the Bur
lington league held last evening at
the Red Sox park was a decided
humiliation for the tailenders and
gave the coach shop an easy win by
the decisive score of 14 to 1 and for
the greater part ot the game the
Storehouse seemed destined for a
shutout but two timely hits in the
j seventh inning gave
lonely tally. McCarthy
was not in
his usual form on the mound and
several very costly walks was se
cured from his delivery and to aid
to the general unsteadiness of the
team the fielding was filled with
many errors that served to add to
the scoring of the coach builders.
In the opening session the coach
shop came to bat first and Nelson
was struck out but was followed by
Ed Gradoville who hit safe through
McCarthy and Shinn hit safe to left
field scoring Gradoville. O'Donnell
was retired. Martin to Newman,
while Kalina was able to get his
anatomy in the way of a pitched
ball by Joe and was given first, but
Pries closed the inning by a ground
er to McCarthy.
The second was the heart-breaking
inning for the Storehouse as the
league leaders amased five runs in
this inning. Wentz was given a pass
to the first sack and was followed
by Wooster who was struck out.
Howe was safe when Buttery at
third failed to hold his grounder and
scored Wentz. Nelson was then
walked and Gradoville hit safe to
left scoring Howe. On the hit of
Shinn to right field Nelson and
Gradoville tallied and Shinn was able
to come home on a passed ball.
Three more were checked for -die
coach shop in the third, filling the
cup of grief of their opponents to ov
erflowing. Pries opened and was out
on a grounder to Schubeck. Wentz
again drew a walk and advanced to
or , second when Wooster retired, Mc
or ' Carthy to Newman. Howe was hit
by one of the slants of McCarthy
and Nelson drove a hit over third
that registered Wentz and when
Gradoville winged a two sacker to
center, Howe and Nelson registered.
rr . M J J i
iounn aaaeu iwo more runs
for the followers of the coach shop
as O'Donnell hit safe through third
and was able to work his way
around the bases and scored on the
'hit of Kalina to the same territory,
I Pries was struck out but Wentz
.scored when Newman was not
to handle hjjf grounder and Wooster
also reached first safely when Schu
beck was unable to field his easy
grounder. Wentz was caught try
ing to steal second and Howe struck
In the sixth frame McCarthy who
had a sore hand was relieved and
Red Newman did the dark work
for the storehouse. Kalina was
struck out. Pries made first safe on
the error of Schubeck and in the
general upset condition of the
storehouse team was able to register
and Wentz who was again walked
was also able to register at the plate.
Wooster was retired Martin to Grad
oville at first and Howe was out on
afly to Red in the pitcher's box.
The seventh brought the only
gleam of joy to the Storehouse who
were in the hole and gave them the
run needed to save a shutout. Hud
gins who had taken short was retired
on a fly to O'Donnell at first and
was followed by Red who hit safe to
center and while McCarthy was
striking out Red advanced to sec
ond and scoring when Sattler hit to
the right garden. Weaver closed
the inning by a fly to Wentz in right
field. For the Coach Shop another
run was tallied. Nelson was struck
out -and Gradoville hit safe to cen
ter for a single and was able to pil
fer second and third and scored
when O'Donnell was walked by Hons
Newman who did the tossing in the
last inning. Shinn was our on a
fly to Hons Newman and Kalina
Howe for the Coach Shop in seven
innings struck out nine men. Mc
Carthy in five innings struck out
five. Red Newman one and Hon
Newman two in onv iniiins.
