SOX DRAW HARD OPPONENTS
FOR NEXT EIGHT GAMES
By Mark Shields
Now for some real ball games.
The charity bazaar has closed,
Konnie's Komical Kids have depart
ed and the White Sox from now on
must work for whatever they get in
the percentage column.
Four games are carded against
Washington, the first today, followed
by four against the Red Sox. In
these eight battles the Sox must
pace a hot clip to remain around the
top. So far as Boston is concerned,
the Sox have the best of it the next
four days. Our prides, will be tan
gled with a team that at present is
much softer than the St. Louis
Browns, who will be entertaining
the Red Sox.
But while we are cracking it on
against twp good clubs, the Indians
and Tigers will be drawing the
Mackmen and neither of those teams
is far enough away to be considered
So far the Sox have played 12
games, at home, winning ten. In spite
of this unusually good record, they
are still out of first place, mainly be
cause the Red Sox continue to push
down all opposition. But the Sox
have gained some headway and can
go into first place on the result of
one day's play.
For the coming battles the Sox
can expect a raft of southpaw pitch
ers. Griffith will use Harper and
Boehling, also Johnson, and Boston
will certainly send up Ruth and
Leonard, and possibly Gregg. Fre
auent glimpses of wrong-handers
have helped the Sox to partially
overcome their weakness against
that brand of pitching, but they still
are less powerful th&n against fel
lows who throw correctly.
