though It took remarkable fielding
by his mates, included in which was
a great catch by Tommy Leach, to
hold the hit column down. Charles
astonished the multitude by out-
pitching Jeff Tesreau, the guy who
weH Saturday by delivering two hits
and taking care of 18 chances at he
first station.
It was unkind of the Yanks to se
lect Ed Walsh, who has been having
a mess of trouble this spring, to get
saved the Giants last fall when theyJ their first home game from. Walsh,
however, did his best work of the
year, in spite of getting licked. He
is fast regaining his strength, though
not yet quite up to the mark. He
showed this when he wavered in the
eighth and ninth innings, and the
Tanks shot ahead. He is about
ready at last, after several false
starts. Another game and he will be
ready to careen along at his old pace,
carrying destruction to the other
teams of the league. Cal is priming
Ed for a tflt with the Athletics,
whose winning streak he wants -to
crack. The Sox leader believes the
Macks will be a harder team to pull
down in the final dash for the pen
nant than the Naps. Every game
grabbed now will make the task that
much lighter in August and Septem
ber. Now that Chase has joined the
Sox, the men believe they have a
swell chance for the pennant This
confidence helps a team wonderfully.
Cleveland, for example. Joe Bir
mingham told his players they were
the best in the business, and nothing
could stop them. He got them to
believing it, too, and they have gone
along so fast that a whole mess of
fans are taking their advice from
Birmy.
Cal is going to give the Nap leader
a great battle in the confidence race,
however. Cal points to Buck Weaver
as a player who is improving be
cause he is gaining confidence. Buck
has the ability to back up his fresh
ness, but he certainly is livelier than
last year, and his batting average is
rising in line with his spirits.
Boston got two men on base in the
third inning and John Titus cleaned
up with a homer to the bleachers,
beating the Cards. Rudolph pitched
swell ball for the Braves and was
began to stumble. He was in trouble
only in the third, and then a single,
double and triple gave the Giants but
one run, as Charles picked Larry
Doyle off first base for the second
out after the Giant captain had sin
gled. The Giants did not look a very im
pressive ball club. They had plenty
of dash on the bases, but snowed
poor judgment. In the field their
work was not the kind to expect
from a team which is favored to win
a pennant.
Heinie Zimmerman looked poor
facing Tesreau. The first time up
the localGerman lofted a fly to right
field. The next three times he
fanned, hitting at bad balls for the
majority of the strikes.
Prank Schulte 'had an operation
performed on his head yesterday to
have a small bump removed which
had been caused by a beaning over a
year ago. The ailment was- not se
rious, and Schulte wfll be back today
or tomorrow.
On the first day he played against
his old mates Rollie Zeider had to go
and hand them a walloping. Rollie
.singled in the ninth with the score
tied, was sacrificed, and then sprinted
home on a short single. Incidentally
it was the first game the Yanks have
won at home this year, losing 17.
Zeider and Borton are well
thought of by the New Yorkers.
Several men on the inside told Cal
lahan he had gotten the worst of the
deal, but James John is satisfied. He
knew Zeider was a good ballplayer,
one of the best in the business, but
there was no place to utilize his abil
ity on the Sox lineup. Borton was
weak, and Cal figured that Chase
would be the needed ingredient to
five him a crack infield. . Hal started 1
