Seven hits were all the Cubs
needed yesterday to beat Boston,
which hung up- 11 safeties on
Cheney.
Larry was the stingy gink
when hits meant runs, and some
swell fielding by Tinker and
Evers also pulled him out of
holes. v
Tinker started a double play in
the seventh when the Beans
threatened to tie the score.
Larry Cheney and Donnelly al
lowed each other to acquire batr
ting refutations. Gheney rapped
a double and single and scored
two runs.
One of Donnelly's two singles
scored a Boston run. .
Rariden, catching for Boston,
led both teams with three hits.
Some Irish team from Boston.
Glance at Titus, Sweeney, Gow
dy, O'Rourke, Rariden, Donnelly.

ment. Five scattered hits were all Sox

four of the swats in the first, Har
ry Lord getting the other.
Benz held Macks to six hits, I
