whiffed with gay abandon. He has
had Ho practice in actual fray lately
and therefore has a first-class alibi.
Roger seldom gets in the game, but
his work was good enough.
Lefty Pierce pitched like a winner.
That may sound like a joke when
you hear that Lefty was stung for
two doubles and three singles in the
fourth round, good for five runs.
Lefty's recovery was what made his
work impressive. After getting this
terrific walloping the youthful south
paw returned with a vengeance, and
in the next seven rounds the Dodgers
got only three hits, and one of these
was a rank scratch. Like Reb Rus
sell of the Sox, Pierce does not go
up in the air when batted, hard. That
is a strong point in his favor. A
pitcher can learn curves and become
effective, but it takes a stronger
power than even Ban Johnson to
give him heart and courage. It must
be born' in him.
Lefty should only have been
scored on three times in the big
fourth, but a punk throw by Phelan,
who took ZIm's place when the lat
ter was chased for disputing a de
cision, and a temporary nap by Saier,
who held the ball while a run scored
after capturing Phelan's heave.
"With Cutshaw playing second for
Brooklyn there was no chance for
Chicago to loose. The usually re
liable fielder committed four errors,
and three counted in the Cub scor
ing. -Before he was hurt Archer gave a
Vgfeat exhibition' of hard and timely
batting. Three times Jim faced the
assorted Brooklyn pitching staff with
men on base, and each time he blew
loose a hit which produced a run.
Then Bresnahan, who took his place,
smashed a long fly in the eighth
which scored the tieing run for the
Cubs. Our catchers were doing their
share with the stick.
Dahlen used four pitchers and
only one looked like a regular fel
low. There was not much chance to
Judge Curtis, as h&-onljrj)itOhed'to
Schtilte, who produced a single tha
won the game. But Allen, the south
paw, who worked part of the ninth
and eleventh and all of the tenth,
was a whale. Seven men faced him
and four struck out. None hit safe
ly and one was passed. If Allen had
not hurt his ankle chasing Evers
bunt in the eleventh the Cubs might
not have scored, as Schulte is no
clouter against left-handed pitchers.
When Allen started pitching in the
ninth the Cubs had three on and one
out He promptly fanned Corriden
How does this sound beside the"
old machine: "Douhte plays Phelan
to Evers to Needham." -vThat hap
pened in the tenth.
Several hundred orphans rrom dlfi
ferent homes were admitted to the-Brooklyn-Cub
game free this after
noon, this being a hobby of President
Ebbets of the Dodgers. When the.
Cubs were in Brooklyn he invited a
whole yardful of parentless kids to"
watch the fun.
There is something wrong with Ed
Walsh, The great spitballer man-t
aged to beat Washington yesterday;
but a relief pitcher was constantly'
warming up because of the way Ed:
was wabbling. He was lifted in the'
eighth to make room for a pinch hit
ter, but the Sox were ahead, so he?
gets credit for the victory.
Luck was all that prevented the"
rout of Walsh in the Washington sec-
ond, when they scored two runs on"
four hits. Rath and Chase staged a
pair o swell plays that kept Ed's
head above the water. The condP
tlon of Walsh Is beginning to worry
Manager Callahan. Warm weather
ha& not brought him to form, and in'
only one game this year has he
shown real effectiveness. .That he
lost. Chase, Weaver, Bodie, Rath an
Lord clouted Hughes and Mullim
hard, but Washington errors gave the
Sox the game. In the first inning"
Milan let a single glide through hiS
legs far enough for Rath. toraco4c"t
