southpaw was in for a drubbing.
Two runs scored for the Carrigans
in the v fifth and another came over
in the sixth. Reb Russell pitched
part of this inning, then two more ati
top speed, and was air-tight.
The second guessers were arguing
that if Reb could go this distance it
iwould have been easy for him to
pitch a couple more innings, and it
was plain he was needed.
Second guessing is easy business,
for you have no chance to go wrong.
That defeat hurt Pants more than
any one else. Make no mistake about
that; Pres. Comiskey says he is sat
isfied with Rowland and it's Com
my's ball team.
Felsch couldn't play because of his
swollen ankle. Using him a few in
H nings Sunday didn't help him a bit.

some New York baseball writers who
have poked "Federal league" at him
throughout the season.
Nothing: would please Joe better!
than to have some of the former
Federal leaguers on his pay roll come
through against the Dodgers and
tumble them down below the Phils.
Zeider, Mann, Flack, Yerkes and
Wilson are all ex-Feds and all of
them will be in the game.
Tinker can't be expected to show
much jn the way of a victorious
jaunt, considering the injuries his
team has run into. Cub catchers
have had an even dozen fingers
broken this season, which is just
about a record.
Myers and Mitchell each allowed
three hits, but Macks downed Tigers
Thomas, new Washington south
paw, held Browns to two hits.
Brooklyn lost ground by breaking
