That is the dope, but whether it
goes through or not is something
else. Browns have just trimmed the
Macks five straight, and if our prides
have all the strength claimed for
them it should be no hard task to
land seven out of eight from the step-
0 1Jiujj siones.
But neither should taking three in
four from the Yanks have been any
mastodonic task for the South Sid
ers, and you kn,ow what happened.
They were against airtight pitching
yesterday and had no excuses for
losing, but they should already have
had three victories.
Jackson, Ed Collins, Murphy,
Weaver and Lapp hit singles in the
ninth for three runs, but John Collins
and Fournier failed in the pinch
when a tying rally was in sight
Red Faber cSd his first pitching in
six weeks, going the last inning
against the Yanks and not being hit.
Faber is now ready to take his place
on the mound regularly, and that
means new strength. Besides pitch
ing his own games, he can help an
ailing mate, and a rescuer is badly
needed, for Reb Russell has been al
most worn out by too much service.
Miller, a new outfielcJer, made three
hits for New York, stole a base and
walked. Donovan let Roy Hartzell
go to Baltimore in exchange for Mil
ler, and also released Pitchers Mar
kle and Keating. Markle was a sen
sation early in the season.
Put a Boston Brave uniform on
the punkest left-hander in the world
and he would probably trim the Cubs
with ease. Stallings has some good
southpaws, but they are no better
than one or two other wrong-hand-iQ
ed flingers in the league. Neverthe
v less, they consider the game already
in when facing the Cubs. Lefc
handers took three out of four here
on the North Side, and they man
aged to get two wins and a tie in
Boston in the series just closed.
And in no game against these
southpaws have the Cubs made more
Jthan five hits. In only one game
have they gotten two runs. Thi3
demonstrates the obstacles in the
paths of the Cub flingers. No mat
ter how good our people may be, the
other fellows win.
Tinker knows he hasn't any pennant-winning
ball team. He is
doubtful whether he even has a first
division club, so experiments are
daily affairs with the North Side
boss. His latest is to send Zeider to
the head of the batting order again,
placing Wortman sixth and Saier
And on the way he has been going
this season that is exactly where
Saier belongs, if he stays in the gamei
at all. Mollwitz would have been
us"ed against the Brave left-handers,
but ballplayers always seem to have
much important business when they
shift teams, so Fritz didn't report
when he was most needed.
Williams was hit on the wrist by a
pitched ball and quit in the first in
ning. That blow hurt Cy, but it did
the team no harm at the moment,
as he' is" woefully weak against the
southpaws. It still looks like a good
idea to bench Cy against the portsid
ers and allow Schulte to play regular
ly. Frank didn't used to have an un
derstudy for the southpaws.
Two doubles by Burns and triple
by Veach gave Detroit four straight
Browns bunched hits to beat the
Macks, who rallied in ninth, driving
Shore held Indians after first. Roth
knocked three hits. Walker's two
hits counted two Red Sox runs.
Dodgers made all runs in two in
nings, Olson being high gun with
three hits. Hornsby hit three for
Wild pitches gave Reds two runs,
then Schulz wild-pitched home win
ning run for Giants in tenth. Benton
pitched good ball.
Bender's good pitching and swats
by Niehoff and Burns beat Pirates.
Wagner hit triple and single.
Looks like Freddie Welsh may have
