second base. Both teams fielded per
fectly, Eddie Collins handling 11
chances. Strunk poled three hits.
Joe Boehling of Washington lost
his second straight game when De
troit bunched hits on him in the fifth
inning. Hall held. Washington to four
singles. Bush whaled a triple and
single and Cobb got a double, and
one-sacker.' A thousand fans from
Richmond, where Boehling used to
pitch, attended -the game, and-presented
him with a traveling bag.
Clark Griffith, said the action had no
significance. .
Cleveland is one team, and the
White Sox are something else again.
Boston found this out yesterday
when they were trimmed twice by
the Naps. Bedient only let one Nap
on in six innings of the first game,
but was then climbed. Falkenberg
was strong in the pinches. Blanding
kept a dozen Red Sox hits scattered
in the second. All the Nap rups- were
scored in the first inning. After that
they got but two hits off Hall. Joe
Jackson failed, to register a safety.
Gardner of Boston rapped three hits
in each game. Engle and Wagner
each got three In the seconds
Rube Geyer, on whom waivers
have been asked by the Cards, and
who is not wanted by any big league
team, gave Boston five runs before
Sallee went to his aid in the third.
Rabbit Maranville caused the damage
with a homer with two on In the
second. Perdue had to be saved by
Lefty Tyler when the Cards rallied in
the seventh. Bris Lord drilled a hom
er and three singles. Smith of BostQn

and two singles and Lobert three sin
gles. Hoblitzel was top batter for the
Reds with a brace of three-baggers.
It's come at last. President Britton
of the St. Louis Cards is peeved at
the showing of the team, wHich now
languishes in last piece, and has put
every player but'.Manager Huggins
on the market, according to his own
statement. This" means, Sallee, Ko
netchy, Wingo, every one, down to
the newest substitutes. Cash is not
wanted for the men; trades involv
ing players are desired. This is "a swell
chance for President Murphy of the
Cubs to land Harry Sallee if he is
sincere in his declartion to bolster up
the West Side pitching staff. As long
aS Britton is in the wholesale trade
business, why except Huggins? There
are good men on the team, if the
work can be gotten out of them.
Rube Benton, Red pitcher, who
was seriously injured when his
motorcycle collided with a street car
in Cincinnati, is recovering from his

recovery.

Moines of the Western. League, has

ed -with the Ogden, Utah, team of the

nolds will complete the season with
