have dropped three games out of the
last four to hopelessly weak teams.
Weak pitching accountsMor the
loss of two of the battles and punk
base running for the one Lavender
lost in St. Louis. Our only win was
because George Pierce pitched his
best brand of left-handed work. The
worst feature of this weak pitching
is that Larry Cheney has been trim
med twice, once by St Louis and
yesterday by the Reds. Larry existed
but one inning yesterday before the
Reds clouted him to cover. He only
allowed four runs in St Louis, but
this is below Cheney's standard when
heaving against a club like that
which Miller Huggins la attempting
to steer.
Reulhach didn't hold the Reds aft
er Cheney was ejected, and six hits
and six runs were gjommed off him
in the fifth. Lou Richie finished, al
lowing a hit and run in each inning.
Lou was up against a hard proposi
tion. In the eighth inning Clark
popped a fly to the pitcher's box with
Groh on second. Several of the Cubs
gathered around and admired) the
sky, but none attempted to molest
the fly. Clark got a double and Groh
scored. That was the kind of stuff
Richie had to contend with.
The Cubs made ten hits, but two
of their runs counted on errors, and
the one in the eighth was made be
cause the Reds made no effort to stop i
Bresnahan when he stole second and
third after singling. The exercise
was good for Roger and his thefts
did not hurt linker and his band.
Joe is a thoughtful person.
Yea, bo, he is very thoughtful.
Imagine what his thoughts were as
his men paraded around the bases
while Evers sat on the bench and
watched the procession. Maybe he
was sorrowful over the disaster to
our John. Also, maybe he wasn't
Evers did not play because Rube
Benton pitched for Cincinnati and
Art Phelan held forth at second base.
Bridwell smashed a double and tri
ple and Bresnahan poled two singles,
one being a bunt he beat out. Roger
J is a glutton for exercise.
Just because the Cubs have been
trimmed lately, don't get the impres
sion that they are due to drop out
of the league. The mechanical
strength is there and all that is need
ed is a little more fight, said fight to
be directed against the other teams. KU
Cheney has not been up to form in
his last two games, but Larry has
had too much work to do. He will
get some help now from Humphries,
Smith and Pierce, and Overall will
be able to perform when the team
returns home Sunday. The prospects
aren't so bad. Stick for a while long
er and youll see the club climb to
third place. The Giants are not play
ing wonderful ball and second place
in a short time is not a wild-eyed
dream.
Walter Johnson was chased for the I
first time this season when the Ath
letics made three singles, a double
and a homer, good for four runs, in
the third inning. Baker cracked the
four-baser, the longest hit ever made
in the Washington park. The Macks
continued to clout, whaling Gallia for
15 hits In six innings. Eddie Murphy
rung four hits, Walsh, Baker and Mc
Innlss getting three each. Milan of
Washington collected a homer and
single.
The fact the Boston Red Sox were
raising the world's championship flag
made no difference to the Yanks and
they socked it to Stahl's crew. Joe
Wood passed five Yanks' and hit
three, though only allowing four
safeties. Russ Ford won his fifth
straight game.
Dubuc easily outpitched Cullop (g
and Blanding, and the Tigers had no
trouble beating the Naps. Gainor,
Detroit first baseman, lifted a home
run over the center field fence. La
Joie's error gave the Tigers two runs.
Cleveland failed to score until the
ninth. Donle Bush got three singles,
fielded eight chancs and stole a base.
Gavvy Cravath has recovered from
the batting slump he suffered on the
2aS&&
