not cover and Leach was given an
other chance to throw to third, Doyle
beating the toss. It was a punk ex
hibition of teamwork, but none of
the players committed less majeste
by tossing up their hands to deride
their boss.
Overall, who started to pitch for
the Cubs, strained his back heaving
to the first man, and went to the
clubhouse. Richie, Leifield and Lav
ender, who followed in turn, strained
the patience of the fans. Richie and
Lefty had nothing at all. Lavender
had half as much.
Mathewson pitched his regulation
game, allowing the Cubs to hit when
the bingles did no damage. In the
pinches he tightened, and made Elv
ers' gang look ridiculous. The only
run scored off bim came on a double
steal following a pass'and hit
The game was so easy that Wiltse
took Matty's place in the ninth, and
Jim Thorpe, the Carlisle Indian, who
had batted and singled for Matty in
the ninth, went to center, where he
caught a fly in the home half. Wiltse
was caught by Hartley, who relieved
Chief Meyers, the only Giant regular
who didn't get a hit The last in
ning was a cabaret, Saier and Brid
well, who got to first, were allowed
to steal second and third unmolested,
and were not noticed when they
scored on small hits. Archer also
swiped a base in this spasm. That
makes five steals in one inning for
the Cubs. It looks good on papeV,
but you ought to have seen how it
was done. Several fans advised
Wiltse to let Saier and Brid steal
home, and make the affair a real
joke.
Saier got three ral hits, Bridwell
two and Archer one good one and a
fluke popup to the .pitcher's box,
which was not fielded.
When the much-heralded shakeup
of the Cub team comes, Manager
Evers might hunt a few arms for his
outfield. Mitchell throws all light
Leach will do, and Schulte has a
good arm after he once picks up the
ball. But Clymer and Miller are
wjeak sisters. Clymer had one
chance yesterday to throw a runner
out at the plate after grabbing a fly
fairly close in. Otis made a remark
ably accurate toss to second base,
which did no good from a Cub
standpoint Miller is just as bad.
Frank Chance has now estab
lished, a winning streak for his
Yanks by taking two straight games,
breaking his record for the year.
This would fill Chicagoans with joy
if the P. L. hadn't pulled this remark
able stuff at the expense of the
White Sox, who are toiling through
the East in search of ten games
which Manager Callahan promised to
bring back. So far the record on the
invasion stands two for the Sox and
four for the enemy. To get ten the
Chicagoans must win only eight of
the nine remaining contests. Three
of these battles are with the Athlet
ics, so the outlook is not bright for
better than an-even break.
Better things are looked for, how
ever, as Chick Mattick has at last re
covered his batting eye, and is doing
his share of the hitting. Yesterday
Chick soaked two singles, one aiding
in manufacturing the solitary Sox
marker, and also swiped two bases.
If he continues he will move up
among the rankers in the outfield.
Mattick is a speedy baserunner and
is willing to takea chance. In addi
tion, he fields on the sensational
lines laid down by Tris Speaker and
Clyde Milan.
John Collins is the guy who is hav
ing trouble now. The long right
fielder is running into the same kind
of luck that pursued Mattick for so
long. Pour times yesterday he poled
line drives tq theoutfield and each
time there was a Yank outpost in
front of the pilL This has been a
daily occurrence with John lately.
He Trill shake the jinx, just as Mat
tick did.
The addition of Chase has not
helped the Sox much so far. The, im
provement will not be apparent until
