ROURKES HIT HARD
! AND TRIM MINERS
Ja'i Pets Get to Two Joplin
Twirlers for Ten Singles
, and Bin; Up 8 to 3
Joplin, Mo., Aug. 1. (Special Tele
gram.) Managed by Owner John
Savage from the bench, the Miners
lost the second game of the series
with Omaha today, 8 to 3. Savage an
nounced before the game that he had
released Jack Dalton because he
could not afford to pay him the
money the centerfiielder is worth.
Savage wilt continue to manage the
team from the bench for the rest of
Rourke's team shows the effects of
his skillful handling in the improved
class of ball offered. The team shows
as good as any that has played in
ioplin recently. Park pitched a
eady game. He allowed the home
team eight hits. But he kept them
scattered to that only two of the
three runs were earned. Aside from
'the seventh inning he was never in
trouble. The Miners' run in the
eighth was obtained on Nye's error
and a double by Devore.
' Gather in Early Runs.
The visitors leaned on Cy McGra
nor's offerings for two earned runs
in the second inning and three in the
third. Yardley. opened the second
round with a grounder to Berg and
was thrown out. Brottem drew a
pass, but was out trying to steal sec
ond. Thompson walked and succeeded
where Zrottem failed andvscored on
Nye's single. Park lined out a double
and Nye crossed with the second run.
Cooney ended the inning with a fly
to "Yank" Davis who olaved eenter-
field in the absence of Dalton from
Krug singled in the third and went
to third ahead of Miller who doubled.
Shaw scored both base runners with a
triple to the leftfield fence.
Graham to Slab.
Manager Savage then sent Oscar
Graham to the slab to save what was
left of the day. but the damage had
all been done tor the four runs that
-were counted while Cy pitched were
more than were needed to win the
game, Graham forced Yardley to
send a short one to Devore and Shaw
was held at third, but the first sacker
scored a moment later on Brottcm's
single to center.-
More Errors Made.
Thompson and Nye both flew out
and ended the scoring for that inning,
but a single and a double netted one
in the fifth and an error, and a hit
batsman coupled with a long fly, net
ted another in the sixth. Cooney
pulled a Merkle in the sixth, failing
to touch second in his hurry to get to
third while Nye was scoring.
Omaha's final run came in the ninth
on an error by Cochran, a sacrifice
hit bv Krug and a single by Miller,
who nit safely four times out of five
trips to the plate." His other trip
netted a walk, giving him a perfect
record for the day. His first one was

Denies Report of Johnson
That Cash Clash Is Off
Cincinnati, O., Aug. 1. The world's
series wilt be held this fall despite the
intimation by Ban Johnson, president
of 'the American league, that it would
be called off because so many play
ers were caught in the draft, Garry
Herrmann, chairman of the national
commission, declared here today.
"The series will be held no matter
what happens," Herrman said. "The
owners of the White Sox and the Red
Sox, who are fighting for the pennant
in the American league, are fighters
to the end and will te Villing to
tackle the series no matter how many
difficulties confront them. New York,
if it wins the Natinoal, will unques
tionably be ready to play, and if Cin
cinnati captures the flag, as I sincere
ly hope, I will not hesitate to play."

Believe Omaha Athletes Will
Show Improvement in Play
ing Under Fa's Leadership.
Fa Rourke's decision to take the
managerial reins of the Omaha club
himself on the second lap of the split
pennant race is pleasing news to
Omaha fans, and they now look for
ward to much improvement in the .
playing of the gate city's Western
A large number of Omaha fans
never could "see" Krug as a manager.
Marty personally is a mighty nice
chap, a good ball player and a smart
one. But the troubles of a manager
apparently have worried Marty so
much that they have not only affected
his leadership, but also his playing.
Insofar as ability is concerned,
Marty probably is the peer of all the
shortstops in the league and when
the team was going good he played
dazzling ball. But when the team
began to hit the toboggan, Marty
took to the chutes too, and his play
ing became ragged and erratic.
Too Good a Fellow.
Another item was that Marty is
too good a fellow to be a manager.
Ball players are of a peculiar species.
Most of them must be driven, some
wheedled and some petted in order to
obtain results. And the manager must
do their thinking for them.
But Marty hated to drive his men.
so that he failed to get results from
those of his athletes who must be
handled in that manner. And he gave
them all credit for too much brains, i
with the result that he let them do
their own thinking a great part of the
time, consequently Omaha fans prob
ably have seen more bones than any
other city in the league.
Failed to Yank Hurlers.
Another point was Marty's unwill
ingness to hurt a pitcher's feelings by
yanking him from a game when hot
tile sluggers began to bombard him.
With Rourke on the bench, things
will be different. He is out to get re
sults and fear of hurting a player's
feelings a bit will never even annoy
him. He'll do the thinking for the
entire team and when it comes to in
side base ball, no foxier student of
the game ever lived than the Omaha
The Rourkes got away . to a bad
start on their second lap, but with Pa
at the helm, local fans are confident
