handed Cal's gang, the game. The
j Neatest weakness of the infield is at
short, where Stumpf is playing in
place of Derrick, temporarily out on
account of injuries. MidkifC is an ag
gressive youngster at third, and
should improve. The outfield is a
good aggregation, but another catch
er is needed to assist Ed Sweeney.
Gradually the pitchers are rounding
to form, and by the time the team
returns home Chance should be able
to start a winning streak that will
lift his huskies out of last place. The
team looks every bit as good as St
Louis or Detroit
Though not actively in the game,
the P. L. is one of the gingerest men
on the team. He is coaching on the
first base line this year, something he
did not do with the Cubs, and is
encouraging his players. Whenever a
batter taps the ball to the1 infield
Chance lets out a yell, and barks at
the runner all the vay down the line.
During the belated rally yesterday
Chance was swinging a bat, and was
all ready to pinch hit for his pitcher'
had McSechnie come through with,
a hit and tied the score.
Some time during the big dpings
tomorrow Chance will take part in
the fray, just to give his boosters a
glance at him in action. It is not
likely he will play first base, but if a
pinch hitter is needed it'll be old
Husk to the front -
Cy Falkenberg, enjoying his fourth
or fifth time on earth, held the Ath
letics to three hits and hung up his
seventh straight victory, this time a
shut-out Plank was hit for two runs
in the first two innings, after which
Wyckoff held the Naps. Terry Tur
ner drove home one of the Nap
runs and featured with his fielding
at second. A win today will put the
Naps in first place.
Boston got two home runs, two
triples, a double and 11 singles off
Weilman and Adams at St Lduis,
scoring 15 runs. Joe Wood pitched a
spotty game. He fanned ten Browns,
but was wild, passing seven. Yerkes
of the Red Sox got a homer and two
singles, Speaker a homer and single,
Wagrier and HQoper triples and sin
gles, and Engle three one-timers.
While Robinson was holding the
Giants to three singles Wagner
cracked a homer and two singles and
Miller a triple and pair of singles,
giving the Pirates an easy win. De
maree was chased by Pittsburgh in
two innings, and Wiltse Was pound
ed hard. Wagner also handled seven
chances at short.
Brooklyn and St. Louis had a slug
ging match, each team registering 15
hits. The Dodgers got the most extra-base
clouts and won. Daubert
and Wheat each smashed a homer,
double and single, and Red Smith
blew himself to a triple and three sin
gles. Konetchy clubbed a homer and
pair of one-spots and" Miller Hug
gins four singles. Steel, Perritt and
'Sallee for the Cards, and Ragon and
Rucker for the Dodgers, forgot all
their puzzle stuff in the pitching line.
Another win for Indian Johnson.
Cincinnati thumped a quartet of
Brave heavers for 19 swats, including
a double and four singles by Becker,
four singles by Tinker and three by
HoblifzeL Connelly of the Braves got
a homer and double.
Some of the tickets for tomorrow's
big doings on the South Side fell into
the hands of scalpers, and President
Comiskey of the Sox is trying to
trace the means by which the paste
boards reached the brokers' hands.
The Old Roman himself purchased
three tickets, paying $7 for one, $5
rfor another and $3 for the third. He
threatens to publish the names of the
people who turned their tickets over
to the scalpers, ats a list has been
kept of holders of reserved coupons.
With the additional accommodations
provided, there will be plenty of room
for every one at regular prices.
