Macks Tumble Cleveland Naps
Clear Way to Pennant.
Yesterday's game between the
Athletics and Cleveland, which was
won by the Mackmen, just about set
tled the American League pennant.
There is still a chance for the White
Elephants to be tumbled out of first
place, but it is a remote possibility.
Bender was as strong as at any
time in his career, and frequent work
does not seem to hurt the Indian
star. True, Eddie Plank has been
ineffective in his last three starts, but
some of the young pitchers have de
veloped to a point where Mack can
give the Gettysburg southpaw a rest
and prime him for the world's series.
Shawkey has already carved a place
for himself and Brown and Bush have
become dependable twirlers. The on
ly game Cleveland won in the series
just finished was copped with Plank
in the box. ;
There is no sign 01 a slump in .the
great Mackian infield. Instead, Frank
Baker is beginning to clout the ball
heavier than at any time this season,
his crashing hits in the last two
games having broken the back of the
Jack Barry, the crack shortstop,
was out yesterday with a slightly in
jured shoulder, but, as usual, Mack
was provided with a man who could
do practically as good work as the
regular. Orr went to short and soak
a couple of pinch hits, handling
everything that came his way in the
field. This preparedness for injuries
is the secret of the success of both
Macks and McGraw.
King Cole, former Cub, now a
whirlwind pitcher for Columbus in
the American Association, was fined
$25 by Manager Hinchman yesterday
after being put out of the game for
rowing the umps. The King threatens
to jump to the Chicago Feds,

Two bouquets are going to be
handed out today, but, like a Car
negie library gift, there's a string at
tached to each presentation.
Eddie Stack, pitcher, and Cy Wil
liams, outfielder, are the happy re
cipients of the kind words.
If Stack can maintain the form he
displayed yesterday against the Phils
(he doesn't need a diaphanous skirt
for the display) John Evers can have
credit for a wise trade. Ed Reulbach
may do just as well for Brooklyn as
Stack did for us yesterday, and there
will be nothing but kind words re
garding the swapping sense of the
Trojan. Big Ed may go even better
than Stack, and the swap will still
be a good one, from a Cub standpoint,
for Reulbach, no matter what he may
do for another team, was useless here
as a pitcher of puzzling shoots.
Holding a slugging team like the
Phils to four hits is a feat any pitch
er may be proud of, and that was
the achievement of the Logan Square
