THREE TEAMS IN EACH LEAGUE
LEFT IN PENNANT FIGHT
By Mark Shields
It is in order to count the Browns,
Yanks and Indians out of the Amer
ican league pennant chase. The
Jones and Donovan clans are each
seven games from the lead and
Cleveland is a game back of that
pair. Only a marvelous spurt by
one of the trio, combined with a ter
rific break by the three leaders, will
give any one but Boston, Detroit
and the White Sox. a shot for ohe
lead.
The schedule is against the world's
champions and the team has been
hitting some hard bumps recently,
but it is hard to prognosticate a sus

such a pitching staff as Boston has.
The club is essentially a defensive
combination, but unusually strong
in that department And Jack Barry
will be back by the time the Carri
gans head westward.. Barry is the
foundation of the infield, its pivot in
more ways than one, and keys the
entire clan to fighting pitch.
Detroit is not to suffer the loss of N
Harry Coveleskie, its pitching star,
who was hit in the stomarch by a
ball recently He worked against the
Browns yesterday and was effective '
the seven innings he remained in the
gamy.
Our .own nopes are having first
base troubles. Ness is hurt, and
when Fournier was canned for kick
ing yesterday, Hasbrook, a Central
ass'n player, went to the initial sta
tion. This kid, raw and untutored,
has in his grasp the opportunity of
being one of the heroes of the year.
If he comes through with some air
tight fielding and hits a good lick he
will keep the job permanently.
'He has ginger and courage.
Throughout the game he was chat
tering at his .fellow players. Ho
