LEAD TO BE DECIDED WHEN RED
SOX COME HERE
By Mark Shields
It begins" to look like the series of
four games starting with the Boston
Red Sox on the South Side Monday
will be a red-hot affair, with first
place hanging on the result of the
Washington is liable to go away
from here leaving the situation un
changed, and the Red Sox will prob
ably get one game from St. Louis.
Such a result would leave the two
league leaders where they are this
morning, the White Sox having an
advantage of one game.
Of our. seven pitching parties who
worked yesterday, two Faber and
Cicotte looked like regular people.
The others were easy and they must
be more effective if the Sox are to
stay up around the top. Earlier in
the season the hurlers were carry
ing the club.
Recently some of the boys have
been working too hard. This is
notably txue of Reb Russell, who has
been showing the result; of too much
labor when the club was closing its
last trip in Washington and Detroit
Reb wofked in four games in Wash
ington and one in. Detroit
He is a big man physically, the per
sonification of cold nerve, but his
arm is only human and it cannot
stand too much. Reb or Cicotte are
the club's best rescuers.
Joe Benz is hopeless at this task.
Joe worries over the mess his pre
decessor has left him and cannot do
himself or the club justice. Faber
can pitch ball for himself, but has
not the physique for rescue duty.
No team in the American league
can let up in its pace now if it ex
pects to be in the hunt for the pen
nant The Mackmen form the only
breathing spell for seven clubs. But
seven games separate the White Sox
