pens to the other fellows we say our
crew did some batting.
After the second game had slid
away the Cubs tried their best to
equal the error record for a single
game, made by the Sox. In a game
against Washington last month Cal
lahan's men booted eight chances.
The Cubs could only muddle a dozen
opportunities in the afterpiece of the
double bill, but they chalked up three
in the ope'ner.
Evers and Archer were both chased
from the field in the first game, and
for once Evers seems to have been
right His banishment came in the
second inning, when Bridwell stole
second. Sweeney apparently made
no effort to touch our shortstop, but
Ump Al Orth called him out. Evers
began to argue with Orth, and was
quickly given the gate. Evers and
Orth are always having trouble, and
a clash between is almost a certainty
when the arbiter officiates in a Cub
game. Boston fans jeered Orth for
the decision, realizing that Bridwell
had not been touched. This is pretty
good evidence that Evers was right,
as the fans seldom sympathize with
him when he is canned.
Archer was chased in the sixth in
ning of the same game, when Cheney
was going wild. Jim kicked on some
balls Klem was calling, and the um
pire is reported to have cursed him.
Archer remonstrated strongly, and
was chased. Things must have been
pretty bad if Aroher kicked stren
uously enough to be ejected, as he is
one of the quietest men on the team,
and seldom rows with the directors
of play.
It is with great sorrow that we
chronicle the fact that Mr. R. Bres
nahan is np foot racer. We thought
he was until last night, but even
Roger realizes he couldn't handicap
Ty Cobb more than ten feet in a dash
to first base. This play convinced
Roger:
Rabbit Maranville was on second
base in the eighth inning when Con
nolly bumped to Bridwell. Brid and
a whole flock of mates pursued the
Rabbit up and down the baseline,
Bresnahan finally getting his. hands
on the pill. The Rabbit was up near
thiru base. Roger disdained to throw,

but, grabbing the ball in -his good
right hand, chased after the Brave
shortstop, with the full intention of
catching him and stabbing him in the
back with the ball. A pretty race re
