They can't travel far enough to for
get that last game with Washington
yesterday. Hal Chase made five er
rors, two on one ball and three
others in a single inning, and Larry
Chappell committed a pair of wild
throws that padded the Washington
score.
Jim Scott pitched nervy ball in the
face of disaster, and held Washington
jto six hits in six innings, apparently
John Henry.
hoping that his pals might rally and
pull out victory. He gave way to
O'Brien.
Yesterday's game was only made
interesting by the young Washing
ton battery, Joe Boehling and John
Henry. Boehling won his eleventh
straight game, passing the mark of
ten set by Johnson, Palkenberg and
Alexander. He was dropped into a
soft spot, but would have been hard

credited with steals,
pulled their stunts in
the ninth, and were not
molested. They were
allowed to walk be
tween the bases.
Henry received lots
of attention when he
broke into the league a
couple of years ago as
a first baseman, but the
large supply of young
catchers who have
come up this year have
occupied so much
space that Amherst
John has been over

veloping into one of the
receiving stars of the
game. His hitting has
improved in the last
few weeks, and Grifflth, like Calla
han, boasts a pair of the best young
catchers now in captivity.
Jack Fournier has cinched his job
in left field. This" is plainly shown by
the fact that Mattlck was left at
home. It means that Jack will be the
