letting a runner score from first. It
was a hit, but would have been only
a single if handled by Mitchell. Then
Mitchell made a wild peg on another
.safety, allowing a runner to score.
Three runs were over and men were
on first and second when Toney fan
ned Carey for the third out. That
showed Toney had noUost his nerve.
He whiffed one of the most danger
.ous batters in the National League.
In addition to his pitching, Fred
poled two. singles and a triple, his
three-ply swat driving in two Cub
runs. Jt is unusual to -enthuse over
the work of a pitcher when a team
gets to him for six hits in one in
ning, but Toney looked good. He can
only gain control by work and ex
perience in actual warfare, and Evers
used good judgmentiin. leaving him in
while the Pirates were clouting. Fan
ning Carey gave the Tenessee strong
man a lot of confidence and he .will
remember it in hs next start. Cheney
pitched the last inning because Miller
pinched for Toney in the eighth.
Without Wagner the Pirates look
bad. They need on old head to steady
Butler at second base. Viox is a hard
worker at short,-but there Js only one
Wagner. Pittsburgh is credited with
the best pitching staff in the league,
but the Cubs made the stars, Adams
and Hendrix, look like a pair of bush
ers. Five of the Cub runs were scored
by gents who reached first base on
passes.
Kid Gleason chaperoned Mr. Calla
han's young men frona .the- South
Side at the Cub-Pirate game yester
day. Cal wanted his hopes to get a
few lessons in hitting in the pinches
.and running bases. They need the
instruction. After this diversion the,
Sox hopped the rattler for Detroit,
where they are today, starting a five
game series: Ty'Cobb began his 1913
season this afternoont and the Sox
will get some more lessons in how to
move around the bases without the
aid of a home run. When they come
home they shdiild know something.
JB3 Walsh, "Ping Bodie, Clarence j
Smith and 'Billy Sullivan were left
in Chicago. Walsh is not in shape,
but will take light work-outs at the
Sox park with Smith and Sullivan.
P. Bouncing Bodie, who holds the
world's record for rolling from first
to second, will, seek to take off a
hundred pounds or so of fat.
Bob Smith, the young California
pitcher, who hurled in part of one
disastrous game on the South Side,
was released to Minneapolis Jbefore
the team left for Detroit. The youth
is needed to cheer the grandfathers
on Joe Cantillo4's squad.
Joe Kernan, the local boy, will stay
in the big leagues. Cal asked waivers
on the y'oung'infielder, and Cleveland
refused to. pass himj He left to join
the Naps last night.
The bad luck- that is following Joe
Tinker as a manager does not seem
to affect his batting. The Red man
ager poled a single, double and triple
against Slim Sallee of the Cards 'yes
terday but lost again. Tinker used
four pitchers, so-called. Becker of
the Reds and Sallee each got three
hits. Slim is becoming a swatter. He
got a home run against the Cubs last
week.
Jack' Miller of tfie Pirates is the
original "jack-roller;" He rolled into
three double plays yesterday. Seize
him, cops! He is in a mood to com
mit murder.
Some white slave in the rumor fac
tory, trying to boost his minimum
wage on space writing, has doped out
a swell trade. It is Chase from the
Highlanders to the Boston Red Sox
for some of Stahl's infield and pitch
ing material. If Chance agreed to
the deal, P. L. will stand for perfect
ly looney. It is no cinch the boss
can play first base this, year and
Chase is the only man capable of
holding down the job. Sterrett is a
catcher and too slow for the infield.
Chance surely needs some plugs for
second and third, but if he gives
Chase up he'll have a chasm at first.
Rube Marcjuard of the Giants js ot
