WASHINGTON OPENS FIVE-GAME
SERIES WITH WHITE SOX
By Mark Shields
Clark Griffith's Washington team
arrived today for five battles with
the White Sox and. a hot series is
assured if the weather man turns off
the spray. In this set-to the locals
will have to meet Harry Harper and
Joe Boehling, southpaws, and Wal
ter Johnson. Probably one of the
southpaws will pitch a pair of games.
That outlay furnishes enough
competition for any club, and espe
cially for the Sox, who have not been
strong against southpaws, even th6
right-ihanded batsmen having diffi
culty with the off-side dingers.
However, Rowland will have in the
field the best line-up he has present
ed this season and one likely to work
with regularity, which means an in
crease of teamwork and general ef
ficiency. Ness will play first against
any kmd of pitching, according to
present plans, and John Collins will
be stationed in right field. McMul
lin goes back to third and Buck
Weaver resumes operations at
Pitching members of the cast have
had an excellent rest. Joe Benz has
had even too much, and the butche?
boy may need a few innings to re-locate
his control. Ed Cicotte has re
covered from an injury and is about
ready to work again. Eddie has been
a good card against Washington, and
his craftsmanship is sadly needed.
Red Faber is slated to pitch a couple
of times against Washington. He is
the guy who beat them in their own
town. Wolfgang may also get a
whack at the Griffs, for twice in
Washington he pitched as good an
article of ball as could be asked.
Griffith has many new faces on his
team this season, Jamieson, Ron
deau and Judge all being new to
these parts in big league uniforms
