not able to swing a bat Zim does
not yet know whether his throwing
will be affected by his injury. McCar
thy is certain to be out for a week,
and the chances are he will not be in
the line-up for ten days more. Jimmy
Archer will be on the inactive list for
about the same period of time..
in their remaining battles with the
Pirates the Cubs must play some ex
pert baseball, for they are threatened
with a drop to seventh place, these
same Pirates trailing closely.
If the Sox aren't watchful Lee Fohl
will sign Theodore Breitenstein and
Hemie Peitz as a kid battery and
pause the Rowlands completely.
The comeback of Fred Beebe was
a marvelous affair. Discarded by sev
eral majors years ago, then found
wanting at Buffalo, he has been
coaching the University of Indiana
ball tossers. It behooves scouts to
watch these Indiana boys, if they are
anything like their instructor. Beebe
held the Hose to three hits, was
never in danger and seemed to be
having a swell time. He fanned four.
Fournier, Jackson and Felsch got the
hits.
Some local optimists, their opin
ions tinged by desire rather than
judgment, have been stamping the
Indians as "through" 'for the last few
days because a few games were
dropped. Far be it frpm such. Fohl
still has a good ball club, sticking at
the top in spite of a run of hard luck
Morton, the club's star pitcher, as
good as the league boasts, is inca
pacitated by torn ligaments in his
shoulder. Ed Klepfer, another relia
ble hurler, is on the inactive list
through injuries. That the team
wins with these men unavailable is
evidence enough of its worth.
There are too 'many veterans in
other departments to permit of a
disastrous slump. The club has the
experience to fight in the face of
hardships, and also packs the punch
to make this nerve bring results.
Until Terry is able to return to the
game fee Hose will carry a bjg han-.
dicap. Wolfgang is at third and
Weaver at short, and Little Mel does
his best. But he is a pitcher, not an
infielder, and the defensive naturally
suffers. It does serve to bring-out the
worth of Weaver, who covered much
ground toward third yesterday, real
izing there was an inexperienced
man at that station who needed help.
Seven pitchers allowed 26 hits in
Washington-Yank game. Baker got
a homer and two singles.
Witt, Mack's new shortstop, made
three hits off Boston hurlers. King
is also doing well at third.
Coveleskie's three hits and pitch
ing beat Browns.
Kauff got two triples and double in
first Giant-Dodger game. Marquard
pitched real ball in second.
Braves batted two games from the
Phils, botting five pitchers.
Louden and Groh made three hits
each in Red victory over Cards.
Mordecai Brown has sued Otto
Steifel and Phil Ball, former owners
of the Sloufeds, for $12,500, alleging
he has that much coming on an un
finished contract to manage the team
for th're years.
The national open golf tournament
opens today over the Minikahda
course at Minenapolis, with a fine
field of professionals and the cream
of the amateurs. Thirty-two men
will qualify in a 36-hole elimination
round, and the fortunate ones will
play 72 holes for the championship.
Chick Evans and J. A. Donaldson tied
for low in a best-ball contest yester
day, registering 137 for the 36 holes.
