Cobb and Navin in Conference
Matty Shows Control.
Sox Slow on Bases Weak in Pinch
Cubs Tie Reds.
Ty Cobb arrived in Detroit today
and went into conference with Presi
dent Navin of the Tigers respecting
terms of the Peach's contract. It is
believed a definite understanding will
be reached at the first meeting. .
Cobb knew before he left Atlanta
just what' to expect from Navin. The
fact he left his home is taken to
indicate he will accept Navin's terms.
What the amount is noone but Cobb
and Navin know. It won't be $15,000
Though Cobb puts his name to a
contract he may be kept out of the
game for some time. He must square
himself with the National Commis
sion, as he is under suspension and
subject to fine for not reporting.
Incidentally, the size Of that fine
is expected to have a bearing upon
Gobb.'s decision to sign.
Also, Manager Jennings may keep
the Georgian out of the game for a
while, allowing Ty plenty of batting
practice. Hugh High, the recruit
will gain added confidence by, being
allowed to remain in the game while
the'Georgia Flyer is on the bench.
Christy Mathewson claims a
world's record today. He pitched only
67- balls in beating Philadelphia yes
terday. Had Mathewson struck out
every man that faced him he would
not have pitched less than 81 balls.
Only five hits were made.- Using 67
pitched balls, Mathewson threw an
average of"a fraction over two balls
to each man.
Walter Johnson pitched'89 balls to
beat the Boston Red Sox. Two were
hit safely and 66 were strikes.

pulled Monday night, Pal Moore and

Fourteen Sox athletes reached first
base yesterday and only two man
aged to complete the circuit Even
though the South Siders won, they
did not make animpressive showing.
Four times when a hit would have
scored a run it was not forthcoming.
Five hits were knocked off Hall, one
of Jennings' recruits, and three of
them counted in the scoring. Only
good pitching by Doc White, who
bossed his left-handed flinging by
some swell headwork, kept the Ti
gers away from the pan until the
ninth inning. Then Doc would not
