Cubs go against a left-handed pitch
er Evers takes himself out of the
game and puts Phelan to work. He
knows Art will outhit him and will
put up almost as good a fielding
In fiw trips to the plate yesterday
Phelan walked twice, hit safely twice
and crossed the plate twice. Both of
his singles drove home runs.
A cfouple of days ago we announc
ed that Heinie Zim would recover
from his batting slump in a few
games and go to work on the pitchers
again. Heinie hadn't informed us of
"his plans personally, but the predic
tion was based on past performances.
And it hit the nail on the head. In
the last three Boston games Zjm
clouted five hits, three of them com
ing yesterday, when he got a double
,and two singles. All were important
in manufacturing Cub runs.
Zim is not the kind of ballplayer
who sticks in a batting rut. No mat

surroundings, he is too proud of his
clouting prowess not to want to keep

Boston's six runs were made ,
on five hits off Lavender. Thai
is easily explained when it is said
that Jimmy handed out eight passes,
forcing home two runs in one inning.
In the fifth Boston scored twice with
out the semblance of a safety. Larry
Cheney had to do a daily rescue stunt
in the eighth.
A hard series for the Cubs opened
today with a double-header against
the Phillies. Cheney and Stack, who
is particularly effective against the
Dooinites, have, been saved for the
occasion, and Jim Vaughn, the new
southpaw, will be on hand to take
part in one of the battles next week.
