seldom guilty of. That made it the
more glaring.
In chronological order the misde
meanors were: Giants had one out
and men on first and third in third in
ning. Merkle slapped a bounder to
Zim, who tossed to Otto for a force
out. Merkle slipped going to first,
scrambled to his feet, then slipped
again. Otto could have thrown the
ball to Mann in right field and the
latter could have relayed to first for
the out, but Otto was intent on get
ting one man. Zim yelled. Packard
howled. But Otto clung to the balL
Merkle reached first. Lobert hit a
single, which Kelly allowed to roll to
the fence and the Giants had three
runs when they should have been
blanked.
Our half of the third: Knabe sin
gled, Mann singled. Williams
walked. Bases filled. Zim up. Great
expectations. Mann took a position
halfway between second and third.
Rariden snapped a throw to Doolan
and Leslie was trapped. Knabe
broke for home, trying to extricate
Mann. They headed Otto off. m the
rundown between the bases Lobert
dropped the ball and Otto scrambled
back to third while Mann hiked back
for second. Bennie Kauff came in
from the field, took a throw at second
tagged Mann out, then -turned and
touched Williams, who was standing
a foot off the bag, apparently trying
to figure out what was happening.
Two out, a man on third. Zim sin
gled. One run. And that was all we
got in the inning. We should have
tied the score right there. Cy and
Mann gummed things.
Our eighth: Zim singled, Kelly
walked. They tried a double steal
as Saier whiffed for the first out Zim
was tagged at third. Then Zeider
peeled A single that scored a run.
Careful baserunning and we would
have had more.
Giants sixth: Men on first and
third; none out. Kauff hit a pop to
Knabe and dashed for the .bench.
.Otto purposely dropped the ball, 1
tossed to Zim and the latter fired to
first Double play. Giants didn't
score.
It isn't often that we talk so much
about a yesterday's happening, but
there was so much bone crushing
done that it is worth commenting on.
Zeider hit a homer which hopped into
the left field bleachers on the bound.
Mann knocked one to the same spot
on the fly.
Brown pitched the final four in
nings against the Giants and allowed
one hit, fanning Kauff and Robertson
in the ninth. ' The veteran seemed
absolute master of the proceedings.
Mulligan and McCarthy are to go
to Kansas City in partial exchange
for Wortman, the new shortstop. The
deal for Herzog is still on, according
to Pres. Weeghman.
Try as they will, the Sox seem un
able to gain on the leading clubs of
the American league. They went
east three and a half games back of
the Yanks, climbed a trifle, but have
gone back to their original position.
And the Boston Red Sox have forged
ahead of our hopes, making a great
record on their home stand through
the medium of some excellent pitch
ing. Rowland's people have four more
games in Washington and must yet
face Boehling and Harper, two star
southpaws. Johnson is out of the
way. For the remaining games Row
land has Russell and Williams in
prime condition and the two south
paws should be at least able to give
the Hose an even break.
There is a possibility that McMuI
lin may be out again for a short time,
but Terry and Von Kolnitz are pres
ent, so the club will not be greatly
weakened.
Brooklyn made one run in 23 in
nings of Kantlehner and Miller of the
Pirates, totaling ten hits.
Braves slammed Williams, Konet
chy getting three hits. Rudolph was
effective.
Hard luck still pursues the Yan
kees. They won two from Browns,
