TWO-TONED HOSE 'IN DEATH
GRAPPLE ON SOUTH SIDE
By Mark Shields
Red Sox or White Sox are apt to
lose ground during the next three
days in the American league pen- W
nant race. Those two contenders
will be tangled, in a fleath grapple on
the South Side while Detroit has
three meetings with the compara
tively soft Mackmen.
Detroit can sweep jts series, while
the best one of the two contenders
here can hope for is two out of three.
That would place the Tigers another
game ahead of either club.
Following this series the scenes are
shifted, Macks coming here for three
while Boston goes to Detroit
In these games with the Red Sox
the Rowlands must display some
thing far superior to anything they
have shown in their last four games
or Boston will ride over them for the
odd game. The baserunning on the '
South Side has been even worse than
usual, if such a thing is possible.
Chance after chance was thrown
away yesterday and victory was only
gained because Eddie Cicotte pitched
such air-tight ball.
A flock of.fans were there with
hammers yesterday, and when South
Side .fans begin to knock, especially
when the club has a chance for the
pennant, something is radically
wrong. For there is no more loyal
fan acmy-in the world than that
which follows the fortunes of Comis
Russell and Schalk are stiH out of
the fray and there is no telling when A,
they will be back. .Neither was- in
uniform yesterday. Russell was nc
ticeably limping, and his absence
from the Boston series will be a se- .
vere blow, as he has always been ef
fective against this club. Schalk
may he out longer than Russell, for
his throwing hand is badly hurt.
