with the Cubs in the lead. Both times
the manager buttered the plays, leav
ing the bases filled and one out. This
unnerved Lavender, who stuck one
over that Murray busted for a single,
scpring the winning runs.
With the bases loaded and none
out Phelan snagged a grounder and
tossed to Evers to start a double play.
John didn't even get one man, muff
ing the ball and letting a run score.
The next batter hit softly to Evers,
who threw wild to second for a force,
and another run tallied. Then Mur
ray safetied. Lavender started the
inning by passing a couple of men,
and Evers was so busy telling his
heaver how to pitch he forgot to tell
himself how to play second. Three
hits were poled by the manager off
Tesreau, one of them figuring in the
scoring.
Corriden took root halfway be
tween second and third and grew
there. Several hits were shot
through his territory that Bridwell
would have converted into outs. He
also muffed a throw from Saier on
an attempted force play that cost a
run.
Evers was not suspended for stall
ing Sunday, but was fined $50 by
President Lynch. This looked like a
piece of good fortune at first, but
as it turned out the Cubs would have
been better off if their manager had
been set down, for one day, anyhow.
Archer was added to the injured
list when an old wound oh the mid
dle finger of his throwing hand was
opened by a foul tip. Jimmy will be
missing from the fray for at least
two weeks. In the meantime Bres
nahan will go behind the bat. The
team will not suffer by the change
in receivers, but should Bresnahan
be injured a fine state of affairs will
exist. Tom Needham will have to go
behind the bat. Tom acted as a pinch
hitter yesterday and though the aft
ernoon was warm, Tom didn't mind
it a bit, Rube Marquard, who had re
lieved Tesreau, fanning him gently.
This is the second time Tom has act-
' ed aC pinch hitter this year. He has
knocked one foul.
Neither Bridwell nor Zimmerman
has much chance of getting in the
Giant series. They were not missed
in the batting line yesterday, Corri
den swatting a double that scored
two runs, and also a single. Phelan
singled twice. But Bridwell's base
hit burgling at the shortfield stand
was not continued by his red-haired
understudy.
The Cubs whaled 13 hits off Tes
reau in seven rounds, but seven of
the bingles were wasted. Six of their
soaks figured in the scoring. New
York stung Lavender for eight hits
and wasted only two. That's why the
Giants have won 13 straight games.
They are taking advantage of every
thing. Fred Clarke had to use 16 players,
but he managed to beat the Phillies
by usipg pinch hiters and relief pitch
ers in the last three innings. Jack
Miller won for the Pirates in the
tenth when he cracked a homer with
two on. Philadelphia scored one in
the tenth and had the bases filled
with two out when Cravath came to
bat. Hendrix relieved Cooper and
fanned the home run slugger. Cra
vath punched a homer in the second
with a man on base. In addition to
his homer Miller rapped two singles.
Cincinnati was outhit by Brooklyn,
but played stellar ball in the field,
staging two double plays that drag
ged Ames from bad spots. Daubert
of Brooklyn got three hits. Brook
lyn made a pair of costly errors be
hind the good pitching of Allen.
Tyler outpitched Griner, the
Braves bunching hits with passes
and errors to trim the Cards. Rari
dan jammed a double and two sin
gles, his two-bagger counting a pair
of runs. Huggins and Konetchy each
poled two hits.
This is news, but, weVe tried to
hide it away down near the end of
the sport doings. In the exhibition
game the Sox played at Princeton
yesterday the small town third base-
