Cicotte and Scott did not have
much chance to pull out a victory
after Bob Groom tightened on the
Sox batters in the fourth, but an er
ror really caused the upset, Buck
Weaver making a wild chuck over
Chase'a dome when he had no
chance to get a runner. Buck has
made numerous boots lately, but he
made up for them by his willingness
to go after anything. Eastern critics
are surprised at the fire and dash of
the Sox youngster, who is not wor
ried by an occasional error and con

troit's only run was scored on Cobb's
double, followed by some daring base
running. Hartzell and Midkiff each
made two hits and were responsible
for both New York scores. Joe Lake
held the Yanks to half a dozen bin
gles, but they were bunched in two
St Louis got to Alexander of the
Phillies for 11 hits, but could not
bunch them effectively in the last few
innings. The Phillies grouped the
majority qf their clouts in two in-'
nings, scoring all their runs and
chasing Steele. Alexander smashed,
a double and two stogies, scoring two'
runs and driving in three. Magee of
the Cards grabbed two singles and a
