stitches were necessary to close the
wound. He will be out a month.
This season Niehoff has been playing
the best ball of his career, his timely
batting being one of the big assets of
the Morans. His elimination breaks
up the well-oiled infield machine
which is a feature of the Moran play.
Boston is four games back of the
Dodgers and half a game ahead of
the Phils. With their rivals upset
by injuries, using patchwork com
binations, the chances of another
pennant in Beantown are enhanced.
Evers is out of the game for Stal
lings, but John has been so frequent
ly absent that he is hardly considered
a regular and the club plays fine ball
with Egan or Fitzpatrick at second
Heinie Zimmerman was liberally
panned when he was not playing his
best game, or trying, to. It is fair,
therefore, to hand out a word of
praise for the Bronx Biffer at the
present time. Since Tinker put him
back in the game he's been putting
some life into his work and the re
sults show. His batting average is
rising and he is showing more ac
tivity in the field.
Tom Seaton has gone to Indianap
olils under an optional agreement.
He will get plenty of work there and
should be in big league fdrm, next
season. Tom started well this year,
but has become a disappointment. x
The news that Eddie Cicotte was
an iron man came a a total sur
prise. And then the Yanks came
along yesterday and proved that Ed
might be iron, but highly malleable.
He went back too soon.
Underrating the Yanks at the pres
ent time is bad business. They are
not the same people that came
through the west witfi nothing but
their uniform kits dnd a longing for
home. Donovan has some of his ail
ing regulars back, has developed
Charley Mullen into a second base
man of startling excellence, and is
a big obstacle to any clu"
So far In their trip through the
east the Sox have fallen two games
iartner benmd tne Ked Box, being
now four and a half combats behind
the van. They did their own share
by holding the Bostons to an even
break, but Carrigan's team is much
too strong for the other contenders.
His pitching staff has reached the
pinnacle of its effectiveness. The
clouting Clevelands "have managed to
score but one run in tnree games,
, and Tris. Speaker has suffered a woe
ful shrinkage in his batting average
while performing in his old home
The White Sox need take second
place to no one on a question of
dogged persistency and mechanical
nerve. They fought uphill all the
way yesterday, lost by a run, and
might have won if this dogged per
sistency had been coupled with some
judgment. Bad baserunning again,
even with Kid Gleason with the
But this punk stuff did not occur
at the Kid's station. He coaches at

two men home in the eighth inning
with two out. That put the Sox a
run behind. With two out, there was
as much chance for Jack to score
from second as from third. But he
either ran 'with his head down or
was ordered to do so, and was an
easy out at third.
Old stuff, but the frequency of its
occurrence doesn't lessen the sting.
Weilman and Ayers pitched well in

Cleveland got five hits off Mays

Joe Bush stopped Tigers with five
