lar, is more commendable than hia
mastodonic clouting.
Maybe Eddie Mulligan, Cub short
stop is off properly now. Possibly he
is on the joint of playing the game
he did last fall when he joined the
club on the West Side. Yesterday he
nnlprt twn hits thnf rirnvp hnmp. two
')m runs and fielded his position with
penecuon.
This is great encouragement to
the youngster, who .worries when he
runs into a slump. But, you fan fel
lows, keep on handing him the glad
hurrah, even though he runs into an
other bad streak. Do not expect him
to achieve every day the things he
did yesterday. It is too hot a pace.
Keep with him, encourage him and
have a hand in the making of a great
ballplayer.
In the hands of the Cub followers
to a large extent, lies the molding of
the Irish kid's career.
There are cheerful days ahead for
the White Sox. They have four bat
tles carded with Connie Mack's stu
dents, Sunday breaking up the series,
so Rowland can rest his pitchers for
the final eastern series at Washing
ton, where two excellent southpaws
must be met
So far the Sox have won three
games and lost six.in the east, which
is nothing to cheer over, but the four
softies in Philadelphia should enable
them to get back to these parts with
better than a fifty-fifty break. On
their way home two games will be
played in Detroit, and the South Sid
ers will be back on their own lot
July 25 for a session with the east
erners, tne Yanks being the first vis
itors. Matters will even up in the long
run, but so far during the season th'e
Sox have not profited through the
weakness of the Mackmen. Three
games were played with the Macks
in the east on the last trip, but all
the games slated for the South Side
were washed away by a diligent rain.
Therefore the Sox have profited
from only three games, while other
clubs have climbed over the lowly
frames of the sophomores. Boston
Red Sox have had 11 games with the
Athletics and this is largely respon
sible for the advanced position the
world's champions hold at the pres
ent time.
Mack is going to have a ball team
in time and it would be just Sox luck
for him to hit on a winning combin
ation when he comes here the latter
part of this month to play eight
games in four days.
Yanks pounded Klepfer and again
took lead. Shawkey stopped In
dians. Peck's triple was big hit of
game.
Browns made it four out of five
from Mackmen. Weilman had an
easy game and his mates batted vig- '
orously.
. James held Washington to four
hits. Tigers bunched wallops off
Boehling. x
. Mike Doolan played short for the
Giants against Reds' and soaked a
triple and two singles in first game.
Chase andHerzog knocked four hits
each. Robertson got three per game
for Giants. Toney was a loser and
Knetzer won.
Larry Cheney lost to Cardinals,
but Pfeffer evened up for Dodgers.
Stengel, Wheat and Bescher each
made three hits in a game.
Red Dooin, Giant catcher, former
manager of 'Phils, has been released
to Rochester of International league.
The latest yarn anent the Reds is
that the team is to be sold to ama
teur Cincinnati sportsmen. Then,
the rumor goes on, Herzog will be
sold to the Giants.
Cardinals have turned down an of
fer from Brooklyn of $5,000 and two
pitchers for Slim Salee. Manager
Huggins says he prefers the $10,000
bid of the Giants.
Pitcher Jack Pfeister, former Cub
star, has been released by Sioux City
of the Western league.
Sunburst Dolan licked Clint Flinn
of Chicago in ten rounds at Aurora.
