(Special to The Daily)
PITTSBURGH, Oct. 6.-That heavy
artillery of the New York Yankees
which was perceptibly silenced in
yesterday's game, belched forth its
fury here today at Forbes field, and
the American league entry in the 1927
classic assaulted three Pittsburgh
pitchers to win a decisive victory over
the Pirates, 6 to 2, in the second game
of the series.
The Yankees knocked the offerings
of Aldridge, Cvengros, and Dawson,
the three Pirate hurlers, for a total
of 11 solid blows. Mark Koenig, sen-
sational New York shortstop, led the
slaughter of the trio of rival pitchers'
with three singles, while Meusel and
Lazzeri each secured two hits to press
Koenig for the flatting. honors of the
day. Ruth went hitless in three times

Aldridge Weakens In Third
Aldridge started on the mound for
Pittsburgh and blanked the Yanks for
the first two innings, but the opposingC
batters solved his delivery in the
third for a quartet of blows whichj
produced three runs and gave them
With the bases congested with Yan-
kee runners in the eighth, Cvengres
was sent in to replace Aldridge on the
hilltop. Dawson, the third Pirate
pitcher in the contest, went into the
box at the beginning of the ninth.
Pipgras twirled masterfully for the
Yanks today, holding the Buccaneers
to six 'bingles, all well scattered.
Pirates Score First
The Pirates started out much in the
same fashion as yesterday by pushing
a run across in their half of the
initial inning. L. Waner, who scored
the first Pirate run in yesterday's
game, tripled to open the inning,
romping lome with the run on Barn-
hart's long sacrifice fly to Ruth in
Four Yankee base hits, coupled
with one Pirate error, enabled the
New York nine to shove over three
runs in the third inning and assume
a commanding lead. Combs, Koenig,
Gehring, and Meusel produced the
four blows that counted the Yankee

Coac1h "Ted" Wieman believes in

1tMisery Loves Company"
That misery loves company was
demonstrated again when Puckelwartz
and Straub, both recovering from
hand injuries, played a little game of
one-armed passing and pass receiv-
ing. Later Puckelwartz was allowed
to try running with the ball, and if
he keeps up as he started out he
should be the champion "one-armed"
ball carrier of the Conference. 'Ny-
land, with his right arm still in a
sling, used his left member and got
a good workout.

ILLINOIS GRiDMEN WILL PLAY BUTLER ELEVEN
IN SECOND NON-CONFERENCE CONTEST TOMORROW
(Special to the Daily)
Forty-two candidates reported for
the Butler team, coached this year by
George (Potsy) Clark, quarterback on
Zup's famous 1914 championship team.
URBANA, Ill., Oct. 6.-Among the
non-conference colleges that appear
regularly on the early season foot-
fall schedule of the University of Illi-
nois, none is more respected by Coach
Bob Zuppke than Butler, which plays
Saturday, in the stadium.
Butler was beaten last season 38
to 7, but the Illini can remember
some five years ago when a smart
team from Indianapolis drubbed the
Illinois eleven while Zup was away
on a scouting trip. Since that game
the Illinois coach has taken no
chances and he is welding his best
combination for the contest.
Potsy has seen his new charges twice
in action, against Muncie Normal and
the University of Louisville, while
the Illini have met one opponent,
Butler rooters will come to the game
in a special train. The Butler band,
familiar to Illinois fans, will again
head the invading delegation.
