They are wallowing along In fourth
, place now, but it is only in the last
few games that the pitchers have
shown enough to keep them out of
the minors and there is plenty of
ground for hope.
ZinS was. not the only hero of the
half-portion battle. Tom Leach bust
ed a -single and an important triple,
and Franke Schulte got back one of
the doubles he lost the day before. A
black-haired youthalso was among
those present His name is Pierce
and he earns his living pitching with
his left hand.
In the five innings the Cards -got
but one hit, an infield scratch by
Konetchy with two out in the fourth.
Lefty was shy on control as far as
passing batters was concerned, slip
ping walks to five. He breezed two.
In, the tight places .Pierce had every
thing that was needful and never
got in- serious .trouble. This is the,
third straight game in which Pierce
has done excellent work. He has
splved the problem of a regular left
handed pitcher for JSvers.
Jeff Overall is still out of commis
sion and there fs no hope of his gel
ting back to ,work for at least anr
pther week. A cold has settled hi his
wrenched back and the damp weath
er in St Louis Is aggravating (the
ailment Orvie remained in bed yes
jterday and it is possible .Evers will
,send. him back home to rest up until
the' team returns next wee"k. Against
St Louis and Cincinnati .he can be
spared and he will be of ntore use
later, when the Pirates, Giants and
Phillies are encountered.
Ty Cobb gained a few points on Joe
Jackson, .his batting rival when the
Tigers and .Naps split a. double
header. Ty retired in the first game
because of aHght injury without be
ing charged with a time at bat Jack
son was put ou by the ump after
he had batted three times without
producing anything hjit groans from
the fans. Cy Falkenberg was chased
again, and lost his fifth straight in
the first battle. Blanding, Willett and
Lake, were assaulted heavily. Dauss
and Gregg put on a pitchers' duel in l
the second, the Nap southpaw having I
aslightedge. Olson of the NapS got
fnnr hits in the first game. Carisch, j?l
Veach and Gainor cracking three a
Cincinnati batted four runs off
Babe Adams in the second, after
which the Pirate flinger settled and
blanked the Beds. Pittsburgh pulled
ahead with a three-run rally in the
eighth, Miller cleaning the sacks with
a wallop off Mordecai Brown. Carey
swatted a triple and two singles,
Tinker and Dodge a triple and single
each, and King a double and single.
