It was a hot day, however, and Art
Phelan would have been allowed to
loaf if Evers had not kicked.
vAfter the first inning, when the
Cubs got their lone run on doubles
by Leach and JEJchulte, the affair
could not be considered a ball game.
The succeeding innings only served
to show thaf Lou Richie is a soft
pitcher. Lou took Overall's place on
the mound in the fourth inning, after
the Californian had been pummeled
for six hits and five runs. After as
saulting Lou a few times the Braves
became too tired to run, and in the
ninth inning Rabbitt Maranvflle, fol
lowing a steal of second while Ritchie
held the ball, deliberately ran himself
to death at third base.
The pitchers were punk enough,
but it wouldn't have helped any if
they had been tight, unless they could
have put over a shut-out. All hits I
had been gotten from the Cubs' sys
tems the previous day, and tney could
total out rour mows on uicKson, wno
won his third game of the year from
the West Siders.
Lord of Boston peeled a homer
with two on and also contributed a
double and single. Rabbit Maran
vflle cracked three singles and Bill
Sweeney hopped a triple.
Schulte, Leach and Overall got a
double apiece and Goode nicked a
single for the Cubs.
McGraw's carnival of nations, in
cluding Indians, Frenchmen, Irish
and. Calif ornians, rattled to the West
Side today, primed to show how the
game of baseball should be played. It
should be quite a treat to regular
patrons of the Cub park. Jim Thorpe,
the much press-agented red man,
wfll be given a chance to perform for
the multitude if the Giants ever get
the Cubs where the Braves had 'em
yesterday in the sixth inning. Mc
Graw is not quite ready to claim the
pennant, and wfll not use his subs
unless he secures a big lead in a
particular game. Eight to five we get
a chance to lamp Thorpe in action.
During their stay in Boston the
White Sox couldn't do much for
themselves, but they gave Bill Car
rigan a fine start before the home
folks as manager. A run of four
straight is something unprecedented
for 'the world's champions this sea
son, and Carrigan is being hailed as
a regular leader.
Bill has a great head. When he
finds his own players can't put the
game over, he exercises some sort
of mental control over the enemy and
forces them to toss a game or so his .
way. Buck Weaver fell a victim to
Carrigan's hypnotic influence in the
second game of yesterday's double
header, and single-handed tossed the
game to Boston. Twice Buck broke,
the spell and spanked singles that
scored runs for the Sox, but Carrigan
regained his control.
In plain English, Weaver made four
wild throws, three to first base and
one to the plate. In the second in
ning he picked up a ball Lord had
fumbled and heaved it in the general
direction of home in an effort to head
Gardner off. The grandstand was un
injured. In the fourth Buck nut a
runner on second when he heaved a
bounder over Chase's head, and then
helped him home by making a sec
ond two-base bobble on the next roll
er. This guy was pinched trying for
third, and then Leonard" clubbed a
double. Buck picked up the next
grounder and tossed it aimlessly past
first, Leonard scoring and the runner
anchoring at second. Two regular
hits in the sixth inning gave Boston
two runs, after which Buck O'Brien
auit He had only allowed four hits.
but five runs were scored. The form
er Red Sox gave his old pals seven
passes, but would have gotten by if
Weaver had not tried for the altitude
record.
Explaining the double defeat Is
a picnic. In the first the Hose
couldn't bat and in the second they
couldn't field. Four hits were jolted
out of Foster in the first game, and
seven athletes fanned, the same num
ber breezed by Jim Scott Chappell
