forger that a swell catch by this
same fielder last Friday kept the
Giants in the. hunt.
The real bonerwas pulled by
Mqrkle and Meyers, -who -started
for a foul from Speaker's batln
the tenth and then let it fall be
tween them. Tris then singled,
and the stuff was off.
Hand the palm to McGraw, the
Giant leader, with a much weaker
team, almost brought his men
home in front, solely through out
generaling Jake Stahl.
In the series just ended Bedient
pitched better ball than Joe
Wood. Twice the youngster
faced Matty, and each time he re
fused to be frightened by the old'
king's reputation.
The St Louis Cardinals are
champions of St. Louis. Some
honor! It might sound better to
say the Browns have shown they
are the worst ball team in the
Missouri city.
An analysis of the Boston
Giant statistics shows the Giants
scored more runs, soakedmore
hits and stole more bases. They
also made more errors, and they
were costly. The only place the
Giants failed to top the Red Sox
was in winning games.
A benefit ball game, the pro
ceeds to go to the Women's
Trades Union League, will be
played at Comiskey Park Sunday
between the Cubs and Sox teams.
The regular IiAe-ups of both
teams will be on the field, and the
game will not be the usual ragged
benefit burlesque. Which ever
team loses the city, series- will be
after revenge in the Sunday game.
