Twice his extra base hits resulted in
runs, but only because a man back
of him forgot his uniform for a min
ute and decided to wallop one in a
pinch. Eddie Collins made two hits
in the four Cleveland games, driving
in one run. Jack Fournier prodded
home one run in the series. Ray
Sctialk is the real pinch guy at the
i present time.
Rowland is considerably wrought
up over the manner in which his club
has thrown away chances. He has
made frequent and desperate shifts,
but so far has failed to find anything
that meets with approval. He
benched Felsch because Hap wasn't
hitting. Hap's sub failed and then
Hap pinched for a pitcher in one
game and singled. Can you beat
Now another shift has put Felsch
back in the game and he is lead-off
man, with John Collins second in the
order and McMullin seventh, just be
hind Weaver. McMullin is as reliable
as any of them when it comes to
pinch hitting, but tradition holds
that Collins, Fournier and Jackson
- are the wrecking boys, so that com
bination can't be shattered. Tradi
tion also holds that John Collins is
a lunging batter. John is fine in
streaks and seems to be in one of
them now. When he fails Eddie Mur
phy will probably go in for him, al
though Nemo Liebold can outfield
any member of the Sox garden
guards, is an excellent lead-off candi
date and can hit as well as any of
his mates have so far.
Jimmy Lavender pitched a five-hit
game and was licked by the Pirates.
He is having worse luck than any
y member of the Cub corps. Carey
poled one over the right-field wall for
the only score. Three hits was Cub
total of Kantlehner, who had some
luck. Allen caught for the Cubs and
looks to be a handy man to have
Fred Toney gave St Louis two
hits, but they were bunched in one
inning for the only run of the game,
and the Reds' four hits off Ames
were wasted. Ames fanned six. I
Detroit finally broke its losing
streak, Coveleskie being tight in the
pinches. Weilman gave Tigers four
hits, but Cobb's baserunning and a
double by Burns beat the Browns.
Shotten got three hits.
Ad Wolgast is planning another
farewell campaign for the light
weight title. Larney Lichtenstein is
lining up a program for the ex
champ and says if it is unsuccessful
Ad will finally retire.
Ever Hammer has an offer to fight
