have been excellent road clubs, but
neither has been formidable on its
own lot. In the east the Cubs
trimmed the Giants with ease, but
here on the North Side matters have
been reversed and the McGrawites
have won four games out of five
played.
Various theories have been ad
vanced for these peculiarities, but so
far none has been discovered that is
holeproof. Both teams have home
followings that are loyal, but seem
to thrive more on the criticism of
alien crowds than on the encourage
ment of a home following.
After today's game in Washington
the Sox will head westward, stopping
off for games in Detroit tomorrow
and Monday before reaching their
own lot, where they will tangle with
the New York Yankees Tuesday in
the first of a four-game series. AU
eastern clubs are to follow the
Yanks, and it is on this home stand
that the Sox must make their bid for
high honors, if such bid is to be put
in this season.
The eastern trip has been a suc
cess, based on the usual Sox stan
dards for road work. Leaving out
this final game with Washington, an
even split has been secured for the
trip, a poor showing in Boston and
New York having been compensated
for by a quartet of wins over the
Mackmen.
The coming home stay should be
fruitful, as eight games are slated
with Mack's sophomores, and -the
Rowlands should be certain of six of
them.

cripples back by the time the team
reaches here, but the team will still
be minus two or three stars, and this
also makes matters softer for the
Hose. Joe Jackson has fallen away
in his batting recently, but Ed Col
lins is beginning to climb and Felsch
anfl some of the other brothers are
hitting lustily.
Another ray of sunshine is the
placing of Ed Murphy in the lead-off
position in the batting order, a job
he should have had several weeks
ago. Ed will not field as well as John
Collins, but he means much addition
al strength on attack, and a bold at
tack is a big asset, especially when
the pitchers give the team such a
strong defense.
Washington got 17 hits off Jim
Scott, and Cicotte saved the game in
the last inning. Felsch and Schalk
got three hits each for the Sox.
Weaver and Fournier poled two each.
Ed Collins hit a single and walked
four times.
Mathewson's first game as Cincin
nati manager was a defeat, Phils bat
ting victory in tenth. Rousch, de
butting in a Red uniform, tripled
with two on in ninth to tie score. He
also knocked two singles. Bill Kil
lefer hit triple with bases full and
also double.
Maranville knocked double and
triple, making Braves lick Cards.
Hornsby hit a homer, the longest hit
ever made on the St Louis grounds.
Indians got nine hits in three in
nings dff'Nabors and beat Macks.
Gandil got three hits.
The Los Angeles club of the Pa
cific Coast league has been sold to
Del Howard. The name of Orvie
Overall also figures in the deal as a
part purchaser.
Robert Hasbrook, for four years
first baseman of the Muscatine team
of the Central ass'n, has been bought
by the White Sox, to report Sept. 4.
He is now hitting .275. Three years
ago he was captain of the Evanston
Acdemv basketball team.
Douglas Grant, Northern Cali
fornia champion, will meet Heinrich
Schmidt in the finals of the western
golf championship at Del Monte,
CaL, today.
The Freddie Welsh-Charley White
battle, scheduled for Minneapolis
last night, blew up with a loud re
port. Welsh objected to Bill Hoke,
a Minneapolis man, as referee, and
refused to go on if he officiated.
Hoke was appointed by the commis
