Bert Humphries was not allowed to
finish the game, though he pitched
excellent ball for eight innings. In
every frame but one the Reds got to
him for safeties, but the side-armer

intentional pass, and got Pinch Hitter
Miller for the third out Larry went
through the ninth easDy with the help
of Johnston's snappy work.
Humphries looked as good yester
day as last year. He seems to have
changed his plan of campaign slight
ly, and does not work himself out
when there is no danger. He con
serves his energy for the critical mo
ments, which is good form.
Again the Cubs were weaklings at
bat, getting only three hits off of
Ames. Their first run was the result
of two passes and a wild pitch. The
second was manufactured in approv
ed style on a double, sacrifice and
sacrifice fly. Leach and Archer each
poked doubles and Zim got a single.
Archer's blow was the only one that
counted in the scoring.
Joe Benz is slated to pitch for the
Sox when hostilities are reopened in
Cleveland this afternoon. He has
shown two good games this spring
and is in shape. Russell is not badly
hurt and will be ready for his regular
turn in the box tomorrow.
Cal's crew rested quietly yester
day, being glad of an off day after
the strenuous work they have gone
through. All of the men are confi
dent, and strangely enough, they are
confident of their batting prowess.
Manager Tinker put his Feds
through morning practice today in
preparation for the resumption of the
campaign against Kansas City on the
North Side this afternoon. Yesterday
was a holiday, and the athletes went
out to see the Cubs and Reds. They
paid their way in at the gate, though
they were offered the freedom of the
park by Cub officials.
Tinker is planning to use Doc Wat
son, former Cub southpaw, this after
noon. He has done toppy work in pre
vious engagements, and Joe believes
he has grabbed a find from under the
noses of the organized fellows.
Joe is not planning any changes in
his line-up at present. The contem
plated replacing of Farrell by Fritz
will not go through. Johnny batted
in the first home game, and indicated
that his weak ankles are gaining
Chance had the Mackmen licked
badly for five innings. Then the Mc
Inniss - Collins - Baker combination
went to work and batted out a vic
tory, Baker producing the winning
blow in the 11th. He and Collins each
got three hits. Bressler, a new Mack
man, finished the game in the box
and went strong. Keating was ham
mered by the Athletics.
Engel passed three Red Sox in the
third inning and Duffy Lewis obliged
with a triple. Another defeat for
Washington. Collins had an easy time
holding the Nationals. McBride got
a triple and single.
Bill James, Brown recruit, pitched
