Five balls were put out of trje park
yesterday. Kauff of the Hoosiers put
two over right, Zwilling and Beck one
each, and Wilson sent one over the
fence in left field, which is a massive
Once more the Fed race is tighten
ing, and now only 172 points separate
the Tots in first place, and the Pitts
burghers, bringing up the rear.
Tinker's men have found- some
tough opposition against Indianapolis
in the series which ended yesterday,
and could make no headway. They
lost no actual ground, so far as games
the percentage column.
Again the fact must be emphasized
that Tinker's outfielders are garden
ers who bear out all- traditions. They
hit. In two games yesterday they
maced out an even dozen hits, which
is an able performance. Zwilling got
five, Wickland four and Flack three.
Two games will be played today
against the Sloufeds on the North
New York proved a magnet yester
day, and Cubs outdrew the Feds for
the first Sunday this year. About 20,r
000 saw the West Side fracas, while
11,000 sat in the Fed stands.
Callahan must put a damper on
Ray Schalk, or the? little catcher will
be permanently lost to the team. Ev
ery time he is injured, and his daring
results in frequent hurts, Ray is or
dered to stay op the bench for a few
days and recover fully.
But he has too much virility to
remain a bench warmer, and pleads
so strongly to be put back immediate

to come back too soon against the
Yankees and made three, wild throws
that were costly. No kick on that.
Remember the games he has saved
by his wonderful throwing.and nervy

Two games are on with the Yank3,

Outfielder Zinn of Baltimore Feds
broke his leg while sliding to base in t
an exhibition game against a semi-
pro team in Washington. The coin
the Feds may have picked up in the
exhibition certainly won't compensate t
for the loss of Zinn,. who will probably T
be out of the game for the rest of the 3.
So long as managers insist on stag-
ing these exhibition contests during .
the season they must be prepared for
Braves still speeding. Fifteen hits ,
off three 'Card pitchers. Evers got a
triple and single and Devore and
Whaling three singles each.
Phillies have some clouting out
field. Becker got triple and three sin
gles, Magee two triples and single and
Paskert two singles. Reds were lick
ed in two innings. Mollwitz played
first and got a hit
Davenport held Kay See to four
hits and fanned six. Stone and Qul
lop were easy for Sloufeds.
