RACES IN TWO MAJORS GROW
TIGHTER EVERY DAY
By Mark Shields
oosxon cnances ot landing ins v
pennant in the National league grow "?
brighter every day. The Braves have
made great gains on the Dodgers in
their swing through the west and
played the best ball while here of any
eastern visitor x
Stallings this season has more
hitting than his club ever developed
before, Magee and Konetchy being
important at driving in runs. His
pitching staff is every bit as good as
it was the year he won a pennant'
He has lost J3I11 James, but.TVler and
Rudolph in the last six weeks have
been turning out victories with ma
chinelike regularity. And Ailen.y
Hughes and Nehf are good enough
to take a regular turn and whip any
club in the league.
Boston is making this fight with
out Johnny Evers, who has been ab
sent for some time, first because of
injuries and then because of a run
in with the umpires. All of which
may be indicative of something.
Maybe it means "that Stallings has a
regular ball club and does not need
the ginger of the crab. Maranviile
furnishes that ingredient, and in
Brooklyn has kept at the top on
the strength of good pitching and
teamplay. The team boasts no .300
slugger; yet is around the top for
club batting. Recently, however, the l
pitchers have not been enjoying life.,
iiarry Cheney has fallen off some- fT
what, and Pfeffer, the iron man of
the combination, has been hit hard.
Phils are still in the fight, but it is
hard to see how Moran can win a
penriant It was just "as much of a
puzzle last season, hut he has more
competent opposition now, both
Braves and Dodgersbeing better
than in 1915. Alexander is pitching
