least a two-base hit.
Slides to Third.
But Robertson was not done. The
Norfolk player doffed his fielder's
glove and stepping into the batter's
box picked one of Cicotte's, sharp
breaking; low balls and drove high and
far into the right center. The sphere
sailed up and onward under the force
of the blow until it seemed certain
that it would ecjual Felsch's home run
drive of the opening game. ' Both
Jackson and Felsch raced frantically
after the ball, but it hit the bleacher
fence and bounded away from their
clutches. Robertson was sliding to
third base when the ball was returned
to the infield.
Cicotte Too Much for Benton.
Holkc followed with a two-base
drive to left field, scoring Robertson.

McCarty who was injured in the see

teammate to third with a sacrifice,

out. As Burns to bat Umpire Klem
took the ball away from Catcher
Schalk . after examining it carefully
threw it into the Giant's dugout while
the crowd, scenting the "shine ball"
booed vigorously. ,
Cicotte Captures Sphere.
When Cicotte hurled up a new
white ball Burns hit a puzzling slow
grounder toward third which scbred
Holke, who was on his jway to the
plate when the bat met the ball.
Cicotte finally captured .the sphere
and tried to retire Bums at first, but
his throw was wild and the batter con
tinued on to second; With Kerzog
at bat, the crowds were rooting
strenuously for a continuance of hit
tine, but Gandil checked the . rally
with a wonderful running catch of the
Giants field captain's foul, which he
speared one handed as the ball was
about to disappear among me spec
tators in one of the ground row of
field boxes. That was the end of the
run-making for the day, . for after
that soectacular inning both Cicotte
and Benton pitched well-night perfect
ball. While both teams got runners
on the bases the hits to bring, them
home never were iorthtommg.
,As was the case in the two tot one
win of Saturday, the wining pitcher
was forced to deliver more balls than
his defeated rival. Benton today
' pitched a total of 105 balls to Cicot-
te a ninety-seven, jusi as Picons m
his victorious same hurled 101 to Sal-
lee's eighty-five. During the nine in-
mngs wnicn cciuuu yuiiicu, iui
Giants grendier hurled twenty-five
strikes: thirtv-ciaht ' balls, fourteen
foul strikes; the White Sox made five
hits, drove oat twenty-one tteia outs
and fouled three bails.
" Cicotte Makes 27 Strikes.
' Cicotte, pitching ninety-seven times,
obtained twenty-seven strikes, thir
teen foul strikes, gave twenty-six
hill and was fouled five times. The
Giants reached him for eight . hits;
went out sixteen times on fielding
plays and J. Collins two errors on

While there was little, if any. ad
vantage between the two pitchers it
appeared to many as though Benton
had more on the ball than Cicotte.

White Sox missing or popping up

The Chicago ; twirler varied his
eitchine to a greater extent than Ben

usual. To those who saw him work
in the first contest it appeared . as
though he did sot have as sharp a
curve as break as on Saturday when
: he turned back the Giants with seven
hits and one run. His record today
was ieght hits and two runs, while

Attendance Slacks Up.
The total attendance was 33,616 and
the receipts $73,081. Of this amount
the nlavers received $39,463.74: each
clug $13,154.58 and the National com
mission ?7,3U8.1U. Neither in attend
ance nor receipt did the figures of
today's game equal several world's
series contests p.aycu ui uuici jtn
at the Polo grounds.
' The few vacant seats in either
bleachers or stands were not visible
from the field and the thousands
rooted loud and frequently for the
Giants. The White Sox. however,
were not friendless for there was a
delegation of some hundreds from
Chicago and these supporters lost no
opportunity to cheer on their favor
ites. The seem cautioning by the um
pires against 'riding of opponents
was ettective ana were was no re
partee among the players and no
disputing of the arbiters decisions.
Boo Agsinst Collins.
Early In the game there was some
attempt to start an organized booing
against Eddie Collins, apparently in
retaliation for Zimmerman s treatment
earlier in the series, but this was soon
hissed down. In every other respect
the contest was all that world series
contest should be. The sky was partly
overcast and there was little wind, but
the cold damp atmosphere made
wraps a necessity.
With Cicotte turned back tor a lew
days at least the Giants supporters
are looking for McGraw to start
either Schupp or Sallee in the next
game, but the New York manager
would , give no inkling ot his plans
tonight. He confined his remarks to
a statement that at last the team had
got going and that he expected them
to continue the winning pace from
now on. So far as could be learned
from the Chicago team headquarters
Manager Rowland's choice for tomor
row's game probably will lie between
Faber and KusselL
