will aim at teamwork in the remain
ing gaines of the exhibition tour. Los
Angeles was downed yesterday, 7 to
2, in ten innings. Eddie Collins
cracked a triple, double and two sin
gles. Jim Scott pitched his'second nine
inning game in four days, and was ef
fective. Scott is about ready for ma
jor league work now, and will be the
main reliance of the Sox when the
season opens.
A story from the coast quotes
Manager Rowland as threatening to
leave Benz and Walsh to some team
in California if they do not show bet
ter. The story does not ring true.
Comiskey will not let Walsh go to a
minor league' except as a manager,
and Benz is just recovering from a
long illness and could not be expected
to show his regular stuff.
Last season Joe was the stoutest
man Qn the Sox staff to beat, and no
hit pitchers are not being sent back
to the minors.
The seconds walloped Oakland, 1
to 0, Scroggins pitching nine innings
and not yielding a pass. Demmitt
smacked three hits.
Another win over the Mackmen
for the Cubs, 5 to 4,-in a sloppy game.
Adams, Zabel and Standridge did the
Cub pitching and the last two were
good. Adams was punk, but Bresna
han believes he has the goods con
cealed about his person.
Standridge, another rookie select
ed by Roger to stick, performed in a
dazzling manner for the last three
inings. He throttled the Macks and
kept them from the plate with ease,
refusing to give a pass. Zabel also
pitched easily and well. This fellow,
if he has recovered from illness which
beset him last season, will be a big
help, as he has nice speed and a peach
of a curve ball.
Schulte's three hits were encour
aging. The law of averages points
to 1915 as a good year for Frank. He
usually has followed a weak hitting
season by a return to clouting ranks.
Saier was out with a strained tendon
and Archer covered first Fisher re
ceived a slight injury In the early in
nings and Corriden went to short in
time to make one of his copyrighted
wild throws and send home a run for
the Macks.
Down in Shreveport the Federali
are putting in some hot licks at their
training camp, with an exhibition
game between two squads every af
ternoon. Regulars won yesterday,
5 to 2, Fiske and Prendergast pitch
ing for the winenrs and Brown and
Black for the losers. Zwilling soaked .
a double and triple.
Manager Tinker is out of the pas
time with a slight illness, but is not
worried. Joe has been taking the
third base job during the absence of
Rollie Zeider, leaving the shortstop
ping to Jimmy Smith, the new young
ster. Smith's preliminary work has
been all that could be desired, and,
unless Joe comes with a sudden rush,
he is due to manage from the bench
this season. Tinker realizes he is -nearing
the pass-out gate and .wants
a man ready to step into his work.
Smith is sure to be retained, even
though he fails at a regular berth,
and will get plenty of utility work to
do in order to gain experience.
George Stovall's homeless wan
derers will be in Shreveport for a
game Sunday with Tinker's team and
both sides will use regular lineups,
to start the scrap, though Tinker is
certain to use many shifts, especial
ly in his outfield, before the nine in-,
nings are run in.
A proposition is now afoot to shift
the Indianapolis Federal team to '
Newark, leaving Kansas City alone.
That may be the outcome of the suit
filed here by Kansas City backers.
Indianapolis has not paid well. Fed
eral officials went east to confer with
Harry Sinclair, purchaser of the Kay
See team, to get his views on the mat
ter. Huey of Chicago heads the en
trants in the international three
cushion billiard tournament with a
clean slate of two wins. Yesterday's .
