INJURIES UPSET CUBS AND SOX;
TINKS GREATEST SUFFERERS
By Mark Shields
Now comes an opportunity to "see
the stuff of which the second line de- $
fense of the Cubs and White Sox is
composed. Two valuable infielders,
McCarthy of the North Siders and
Terry of the South Siders, were
spiked in games yesterday and each
will be replaced by a substitute for
an indefinite period.
The blow probably falls the hard
er on the Cubs. Tinker has an ex
perienced inner wall man in Otto
Knabe to take the place of Little
Alex, but the club was already han
dicapped by the absence of Heinie
Zimmerman. Now only two regular
members of the machine are left,

McCarthy's knee was gashed open
by' the spikes of Max Carey in the
first inning and he was carried from
the field. This makes a tough run of
bad luck for the Tinks. On the east
ern trip the club hit its natural speed
and was kiting along at a pace that
meant a shot for the top of the lad
der. With two men on .the infield
who are not 'fast enough for regular
duty the team suffers irreparably.
Though Rowland has no infielder
to send in for Terry, he is not so
severely handicapped as it Tinker.
Fred McMullin is still limping on
crutches, so there is no chance for
him to take up Terry's duties. This
means Eddie Murphy, an outfielder,
not regularly employed, will be W
drafted for infield work. Murphy
tried it for a few innings yesterday.
He was not a howling success, mess
ing his only chance, but he will be
able to take care of the third base
duties, while Weaver goes to short '
While the defensive play suffers on
the South Side more than on the
North, the attacking side of the cast
