.It's no use. The rest of the
league may as well give up the
idea of trimming the White Sox.
Boston will never have a better
chance of winning than it had
yesterday. Boston was one run
ahead in the ninth, two men were
out of the way and not a white
leg was on the paths. It looked
pretty soft for McAleer and his
Beans. -Then Walsh was safe on
an error, Rath doubled, Lord
walked and Lange took a rap in
the neck, forcing over the tieing
run. Engle erred on Bodie's
punch and another run came
through. Then Shano Collins sin
gled and the stuff was off. Four
runs.
The Sox won because they are
imbued with the fighting spirit
They never quit until the last
man is out in the ninth and are
pounding at the enemy's, defense
every minute.
Manager, Callahan kicked
himself out of the game in the
eighth protesting against the"
calling- out of Bodie at second
when the latter tried to stretch
his single into a double. Bill
Lange took his place in left
field and won the game. It is
doubtful if Mr. Callahan could
have stuck his Adams apple in
front of the ball with the same
easy grace that Bill did, scoring
that tieing run. Bill is one of
the hiost unique pinch hitters
now pinching.
Until that ninth inning the Sox
attack had not been consistent.
They had strung up 12 hits, three
of them for extra bases, and been
presented with two passes, but all
this material netted only one run.
In the first inning the first three
Sox at bat got on, but the trio
were pegged out by the aged arm
of Bill Carrigan when they tried
to leg it to second.
Manager Chance used 14 men
yesterday to fight the Phillies,
but the latter outslugged the
locals and had the better pitching.
Old Mordecai Brown started the
game, but a vicious assault on him
in the third netted Dooin's men
three runs and also chased Brown
to the clubhouse. The old star
failed to show the goods that
made him the terror of all bats
men and led him to many a vic
tory in his famous duels with
Christy Mathewson.

Another reason for the Cub
f downfall. Heinie Zimmerman did-
NOT hit. .What chance have the
