the bat boy, with Vaughn his only
effective man, shot Zabel into the
breach. And George Washington
pitched one bang-up ball game,
though he was beaten? .3 to 0. The
licking was not his fault. """"
Cincinnati was reached next, and
after three or four Cub twirlers had
given the Reds 13 runs in nine in
nings, Zabel was used again. Right
there he started. Nary a run did the
Reds get Zabel was tight with the
hits, and his control was a trifle bet

Pittsburgh was the next stop and
again the young fellow came through
with a beautiful game, mystifying
Fred Clark's ball team. And yester
day he climaxed with his very best
game, holding the Reds to five hits
and passing only three.
Zabel has steadily improved. He
has overcome his wildness and the
opposition must hit the pill safely to
score runs when he is in the box.
Hitting safely is no soft snap when
the Kansas chemist has his sidearm
ball working perfectly.
A youngster, Zabel has several
years of big league endeavor before
him. This is really his first season
as a regular. He was used some last
season, but not extensively. Now he
is as effective as Vaughn and has
much of the responsibility of keeping
the locals going.
One pitcher at a time, the Cubs will
come. Bresnahan will now have a
chance to work with one or two of
the other slow developers, and this
labor should bear fruit, as Roger is
one of the best tutors for heavers in
By winning from Cincinnati the
Cubs are only half a game from the
top of the ladder, as Philadelphia lost
to the Giants. Batting by Bresna

played a big part in the victory. The

Jim Scott is the unluckiest of the
White Sox pitchers. Any time the
South Siders decide not to make any
runs and put their boxman in a diffi

He fanned seven Cleveland people,
allowed three hits and passed three,
two of the passes being intentional,
but one of these blows, a triple in
the ninth, was enough to beat the
Death Valley lad.
The Sox should have scored three
runs in the second inning but blew
the chance by stupid baserunning.
Two hits, a pass and one error failed
to produce a run. Every Sox out was
made by catching a man after he had
reached a base. Weaver and Fournier
were the guilty parties.
It was Just one of the unfortunate
incidents that are bound to happen,
and better things can be looked for.
Eleven hits were made by the
Whales for only three runs, and two
of these scored on homers by Beck
and Zwilling. Like the Sox, bad
baserunning was the undoing of the
Whales. Two singles in the second
were followed by a squeeze play that
didn't work and a chance were glim
mering. A homer by Owens in the
tenth won for Baltimore.
Tinker played third base and
knocked a pair of hits, but Joe is not
as fast as he used to be and business
should pick up when Jimmy Smith
returns to short and Zeider goes back
to third. At the time he was injured
