Clipping:Fear that the pitcher can throw the game

Our clubs are beginning to fear that the pitcher has much to do with the loss of their games. Can this be true? It cannot be questioned that the pitcher, to a great extent, controls the result of the game. He may win for his side up to the close of the 8th inning , and then “throw the game” on the 9th, by delivering easy balls square to the bat.
What is the matter with Fisher? This question was asked a number of times after the game yesterday. How was it that the Mutuals, after failing to hit him during the early part of the game, made such tremendous hits in the last inning? This looks queer. Can anyone explain?
