man dived for Daniels and tagged
him with the ball as he flashed by.
Getting only the first man doesn't
look like a play to save a game, but
the next batter singled and the one
who followed was safe on Rath's er
ror, the only Sox bobble of the day.
If Chase had not been agile of leg
and wit the bases would have been
loaded and Jack Knight would have
come up with two out. Knight had
no difficulty hitting Scott and he
would have been in position to score
some runs for the Yanks. As it
was, Peckinpaugh was the last man
to bat in that inning and he breezed
punily. In four times up Peck fanned
twice and fouled to Schalk the other
times.
Prom a spectacular standpoint,
Schalk was the whole works. He
bludgeoned home the sole two runs
of the game with a long double to
left center in the fourth, smacked a
single in the second stole the only
base, and accepted fifteen chances
behind the bat, five of them being
catches of high, twisting fouls."
How far Ray's double traveled is
best shown by the fact that Ping
Bodie, who is about as speedy as
subway construction or through "L"
routes, was able to score all the way
from first base, which he had reach
ed on a pass.
The ease with which Schalk pick
ed off fouls was almost uncanny. A
high wind which swept across the
diamond had the ball doing spiral
glides and aerial dips when it shot in
the air, but the kid catcher gauged
the lofters accurately and his hefty
mitt was under every foul that went
back of the plate. His best effort of
the day was on a play he didn't com
plete. S,mith of the Yanks busted a
high one close to the grandstand
near the visiting coop in the third
and Ray sailed after, the pill. He got
it in his glove, but crashed into the
stand at the same instant and the
ball was jilted to the ground. Then
Smith fanned, so Ray got the putout
after all. No veteran receiver in the
American League is a better man
on foul flies than Schalk. He' pulled
Scott out of a hole in the seventh
when, with the bases loaded and two
out, he ran to the stand at the rear
of the plate and hooked Welter's
high twister.
Jack Knight, who has done consid
erable ball playing on major and
minor teams for so young a person,
made his re-entry into the big tent
auspiciously, meaning with the
goods. His gorilla-like reach tucked
in throws that traveled anywhere
near the first bag and he handled two
grounders in neat fashion. At bat
he walloped a couple of hits. If.
Knight can hit for .270 or better,
Chance's first base problem will be
solved.
Harry Lord made a nervy play in.
the third when he fell into the Sox
coop after catching a foul off Mid
kiff's bat in the third. Morris Rath'
singled twice, but both hits were"'
wasted.
Jim Scott executed the Yanks in'
. the first five innings and then let his
support do the work.- Jim fanned
eight men' in the first five innings and
ten in the' entire game.
Rollie Zeider appeared as a pinch
hitter but failed to deliver. He will
be an , active member of the Yank
cast before the end of the present
series.
It was announced that the Sox had
secured Catcher Daley from the Low
ell New England League club. This
is the same gent the Boston Red Sox
declared they had a couple of days
ago and an argument may result
Blossom Seeley's husband, Rube
Marquard, had a line of stuff yester
day the Cubs couldn't connect with
and he copped in hollow fashion, de
spite the fact his teammates made
five errors that iet Cub runners reach
first base. Three-measly hits were
the total of the Cub club swinging,
and two of them were singles by
