he would probably have gotten away
with his bluff, as all of the baseball
xwriters.thought at first he had made
the catch. Later events showed Col
lins' run was the sugar point.
Playing away from home, the Sox
snow to better advantage. .Yesterday
they had plenty of dash-on the paths,
hit in the pinches and-acted like regu
lar ball players. Six runs is as many
as they scored in any two games on
the South Side.
Poor old Christy Mathewson. The
Giant veteran is ready for the scrap
heap. Any man who can pitch thir
teen scoreless -innings in one after
noon, allowing eight hits, is getting
his coin from the boss under false
pretenses. In line with what we said
about Larry Cheney in thebeginning
of this literature, Matty only fanned
one man, and that was- with a run
ner on third and two out At other
times he let the BrooWyn batters pop
easy flies or roll sof t grounders. After-
the second inning there was never a
chance for the Dodgers to score. Nap
Rulker outpitched Matty for 11 in
nings. In that time the Giants pegged
two hits. Matty got one in the
twelfth, and in the thirteenth Rucker
blew, the Giants scoring four runB on
six hits before Eddie Stack was sub
stituted in the box.
Frank Chance today spiked the
rumor that he' would trade Hal
Chase. Anybody surprised? Neither
Hans Wagner walked without a
cane when the Pirates began a home
series against rthe Cards this after
noon. A physician who examined the
German's crippled knee says he will
be in the game in three weeks. If
the Pirdtes can stay .in the league
until then they will have a chance.
Lefty Mogridge, sent to Minneap
olis by the White Sox, twirled an air
i tight game against Louisville yester
day. Pittsburgh defeated Chicago,' 50 to
47, in the fifth game of the Inter-ationalThree-Cushion
off. Tonight's winner will takethe
championship. ' '
Gilbert Gallant, Ql Boston light-
weight,' gave Bat "Nelson the beating
of his life last night. Three times

champion out. i
Jim Coffey, the "Dublin Giant," has
a hunch he is a coming champion.
He knocked out some person named
Whitey Allen in one round in New
York last night.
