MAJOR LEAGUE FLAG RACES
HECTIC SCRAMBLES
By 'Mark Shields
Our National league entries
swamped the Cardinals, going to a
tie for sixth place,, but main interest
in the Tener scramble clusters in
the east, where Brooklyn, Boston
and Philadelphia are entangled in a
death grapple, with the pinnacle de
pending on the "results of the next
ten days' pla ( Brooklyn and the
Phils have eighjt games together, n
the meantime, Braves. are hooked up
with Giants, who have been strength
ened and may put hurdles in the path
of the Stallings hopefuls.
If Brooklyn can take the majority
of its games wjth the Phillies, that
should furnish the answer to the
final resting, place of the 1916 pen
nant The leaders must fight it out
among themselves before the west
ern teams go east, and so far for the
year the Dodgers have had little dif
ficulty in repulsing the Braves' and
Morans. "
Brooklyn has the only possible
aHbi of the trio in the absence of
Daubert and Johnston. The latter
will be back shortly, and Merkle has
capably filled the nlacp of the ailing
first baseman. The other two clubs
have their regular line-ups intact.
It is a fight from now out on the
merits of the- teams, with Brooklyn,
on its past record, having the edge,
the Braves given the next chance
and the Phils an outside possibility
Tinker used Charley Pechous on
third base at St Louis and the local
youngster indicated that a year in
the minors had done him a lot of
good. His batting showed no hits,
but he faced the plate confidently'
and one error could not mar some of
his fine fielding stunts. Cv Williams
poled a double and triple while Pack
ard was stalling the Cards.
