Pittsburgh for today's fight -with 'the
Pirates.
Of the eleven games played by the
Cubs this season. Cheney has taken
part in eight, acting as rescuer in all
four of the tilts in Cincinnati. This
overwork is beginning to tell on the
star of the staff, as his performance
in the last game in Redland indicated.
Larry was hit hard in the two innings
he pitched and Tinker's men were
able to tie. the score. Evers realizes
Cheney must be saved in order to be
useful later in the season, and if the
other pitchers can hold out Larry
will be given a rest until Sunday,
when the- Cubs open on the West
Side, returning Pittsburgh's hospi
tality. In the next four games, two in
Pittsburgh and two here, a battle
royal for second place will-be staged.
The Cubs and Pirates are tied, with
seven games won and three lost, New
York having won the same number
and lost one less. If Evers can take
three games he will have a great
chance of leading his team east in
second place. So far the locals have
won two out of three from Pitts
burgh. Fred Clarke is bossing a crippled
team.. Wagner has a lame knee, but
the injury is not as serious as at
first believed and the Dutchman
should be back in the game within
two weeks. Catcher Gibson is due
for a month's' rest as a result of his
collision with the grandstand In SL
Louis a few, days ago.
Phelan and Corriden are sure to
get a chance in two of the games
against Pittsburgh, as Clarke will use
Cooper and Robinson, tiis two young
left-handers. This means that Evers
will lift himself and Bridwell. The
bruise on HeinieN Zimmerman's heel
is not serious and the Bronx biffer
is in action this afternoon.
Joe Tinker refused to waive on
Pitcher Bill Powell and Second Base
man, Marty Berghammer and the two
youngsters were turned over to the
Reds by the Cubs. .Berghammer is
a budding star and Tinker made S"
ten-strike by grabbing him.
To work, scouts-. Hank O'Day has
not signed to umpire in the American
League and John Kling has not
agreed to catch lor the Reds for the
last 48 hours.
Cincinnati won another game,
beating St. Louis. Five1 doubles, six
triples and 16 singles were blasted
during the combat. Huggins used
five pitchers, Sallee, Burk, Redding,
Willis and Geyer. Slim was hit safely,
seven times in three innings. Suggs
was soaked-safely 13 times; but man
aged to keep them scattered except
in two innings. Konetchy pasted two
triples and a double, Marsans two
triples and Clark two doubles and a
triple. Eddie Grant achieved three
singles.
The Giants hit Earl Moore safely
five times in two innings, one of the
blows being a homer with'two on in
the second by Shafer, and the Phil
lies were snowed under. Nelson, who
pitched the last six innings against
New York, had the goods, as did
Ames, who traveled the route fpr the
Giants. Burns and Merkle of the
Giants each poled three hits and stole ,
a base.
James of Boston and 'Allen of
Brooklyn fought a great' pitching
duel for twelve innings in Beantown.
Allen allowed seven hits, fanned ten
and passed one. James was found for
eight hits. Rariden batted 'for Sey
mour in the twelfth with two out and
singled home the winning run.
Brooklyn had ten men left on bases.
They ought to play a series with the
White Sox.
Chance's young catchers, Sterrett
and" Williams, were unable to stop
the Athletics from stealing bases, and
the Yanks dropped another game.
Schulzr the left-handed youth, held
the Macks to five hits, but Collins,
Barry, Murphy and Walsh ran wild
on the paths. Schulz was partly re
sponsible, as he allowed the runners
to get a big lead. Three Yanks tried
to swipe: second, and all were turned
