One lost game in the tipsy cham
pionship series which the Whales are
playing in Pittsburgh and the North
Siders dropped to third place. Tink
er's men must now win three out of
four from the league leaders in smoky
town to hang the flag over Weegh
St. Louis took a game from the
Packers. This helped the Feds to
slide back to third. They now have
the poorest chance of any of the three
contestants. But it is a chance and
the Feds are hot after it.
Another name was inscribed in the
Hall of Fame last night when the Red
Sox, although they did not play, were
sent into the pennant class because
the Browns hammered the Tigers for
It wasn't luck that gave Bill Carri
gan a pennant winner. It was plain
grit, a couple of tons of sheer fighting
and some rattling good consistent
baseball. No manager ever faced a
stiffer field than did Carrigan.
Our crumpled White Sox, rein
forced by the meteoric Collins at sec
and, and with a chucking staff reck
oned to be the class of the circuit,
started well and set the pace until
June. When they had been squelched
a new ogre rose to confront the Bos
ton mentor the Tigers. And it was
some ogre. Cobb was playing the
best baseball of his career. Crawford
was slugging with all his old-time
power; Veach was playing like a
fiend. And Jennjngs had an infield.
All this array of power was backed
up with a fair pitching staff.
Boston has worked its way into -the
big tilt through the classiest field that
ever represented Ban Johnson's loop.
The Phillies have won a pennant
from a field that probably is the
weakest that ever jepresented the
National circuit, and that's taking no
credit away from Pat Moran, either,
because he deserves all the roses that
be shied at his head.
Both favorites in the National
league dropped by the wayside.
Giants never were in the hunt, and
the Braves, handicapped by injuries
and suspensions, put up a game but
futile fight Brooklyn threatened for
a while, but their opposition was not
of the steady variety.
Phillies displayed a flash to take
the lead early in the season, but since
then have played fifty-fifty ball, be
lieving their enemies didn't have the
stuff for a spurt that would overtake
them. They were right, for had either
the Braves or Superbas possessed a
drive of any power at all the Phils
could have been unseated at almost
any stage of the race.
And because of this because Bill
Carrigan's clan has fought its way to
a pennant through a bunch of hard
