Is not making so many wild throws
as he did a month ago.
The Cub pitchers are so good right
now that an error now and then is
not going to cause as much trouble
as it did a month ago. The attack of
the team, if there is any variation in
it at all, should increase ki strength.
oy Williams aim im can ue cuumeu
$ff onto main-tain the pace they have
set so far, and Saier should take on
a few points.
Packard pitched a one-hit game
against the Braves, despite the fact
that Stallings had eight right-handed,
batters in the game. Gene was very
tight in rough places. Once the
Braves had a man on second with
none out following a bad throw by
Zim, but there was no count
With Evers out of the game the
Braves do not look powerful. The
team lacks its natural fight and de
termination. This is another argu
ment against the suspension of play
ers. It hurts the team without se
verely punishing the athletes. A sys
tem of fines would be much more ef
fective discipline, as the punishment
then would fall directly on the player.
At present all the burden is borne
by the club owner,' as the athlece's
salary goes on while he is on the
bench. And -the fans are prevented
from seeing in action the men they
pay their money to watch.
Bad baserunning caused the ,Sox
to lose the second straight to the
Yanks, but three runs being manu
factured out of 13 hits, among them
a couple of doubles. The Sox were
also handed three passes and the
Yanks made two errors.
And bad baserunning is nothing
.new for the Rowlands. It was a bad
' feature of their work at home, even
in the midst of their toppy winning
streak. At that time it was over
looked, to a large extent, because the
, club was punching home enough
runs to cover up the deficiency. But
a club cannot do the wrong thing
continually and keep in the van.
v Here are a couple of instances; In
one inning yesterday the Sox had
men on first and second with none
out Weaver belted a double to left
field. The man on second scored
easily, but the runner who was on
first was also waved toward the
plate, where he was thrown out And
the Sox only got one run that in
ning. If the runner who was on first
had been stopped at third the Sox
would have had a run, men on sec
and third with none out and B. Col
lins, Jackson and -John Collins com
ing to bat in the order named.
Later Ed Murphy was sent on to
run for Wolfgang when the latter
reached first Felsch hit to left
Murphy -stuttered at second, then
made a try for third, and was nailed.
He could have made it if he had con
tinued to run and had not hesitated.
The best excuse for this is that
Murphy, naturally one of the best
baserunners and finest offensive men
on the club, is kept on the bench so
much that he has forgotten the loca
tion of the bases. Murphy is no
Felsch hit five safeties, and Wea
ver, Schalk and Wolfgang two each,
Jackson beat out a bunt John Col
lins got the 13th wallop.
It is pitiful the way Ty Cobb is slip
ping. He is liable to qiit in disgust
most any day because of his punk
showing. All he could do yesterday
was knock a homer and two singles
in four times at bat Vitt and Cove
leskie also made three hits off My
ers, Mack's young star.
-Beebe held Boston to four hits in
seven innings, but Red Sox won off
Bagby. Speaker started two double
Washington made five errors, St.
Louis beating Walter Johnson easily.
Plank gave five1 hits.
Meadows outpitched Alexander,
but errjar gave Phils lone run against
Carey's homer and double beat the
Dodgers made two runs in ninth)
