Tans Who Condemn the Tigers for
V Taking Chances On the Paths
Should Indulge in Retrospection.
Opposed by a personally raascotted,
unbeaten pitcher, the Tigers opened
their series in New York yesterday
by dropping a very one-sided game
to tho Stallings aggregation, thus giv
ing Bddie Summers his third defeat
out of nine appearances in the box.
and enabling the lowly tall-enders of
last year’s race to work their way into
•ecoari position, where it is now in
their power to pass the Tigers in the
three more games to be played In the
metropolis, provided the Champs lose
them all.
That is the way, at any rate, that
they are doping it in New York. On
the other hand Detroit bugs refuse to
regard 4he New York team as serious
contender* for the flag, and would pre
fer seeing.them in a threatening posi
tion than any other club In the league
with the possible exception of Wash
ington i )r
Calesthenics for Summers.
Beyond a doubt Eddie Summers fol
lowed up his losing game by a renew
ed zeal in the department of home
cghtfltpenics. Such ,at any rate has
been his habit on similar occasions
this year. Eddie believes he is too
fat All season he has been worrying
over his increase in weight and. after
hia failure here to stop the Athletics
he aakea and received from Trainer
Tathill a long series of physical exer
cises tending to reduce the weight at
the point* where it aeemed to be in
those who know Summers' tall,
tfeptjl-pick frame, his anxiety over ex
tra weight would appear superfluous.
But he is in earnest about it. and will
not be content until his slender, sylph
like waist is regained. In the mean
time, however, he has won six out of
the nine games he has twirled, so the
weight-acquisition is not fatal at any
, rate.
Manning In Form.
Manning, who twirled the game for
New York, was making his first start !
•gainst the Tigers. His curve ball
was as effective as In former seasons
•nd the fact that Stallings is not mak
ing as p>M p h use of him as Griffith did.:
seems to agree better with the twtrl
er‘» peculiar, arm-snapping delivery, j
Tour hits he allowed, Mclntyre. Craw
ford, Cobb and Schaefer getting one
each. On the other hand. Summers
was spanked fbr punches in two
stages and the combat and gave way
to Works at the end. the latter allow
lng no more scoring. Keeler. Cree
and Engle were the chief murderers.
The score was 5 to 1.
Schaefer was back at second base j
and fielded nicely. Rossman batted
far Summers in the eighth and sent a
•harp ground ball to Manning. Beck
•adorf was injected into the proceed
ings with Works and his New York
frlenda pulled off a presentation which |
Included a suit case, a traveling set
and some other debris.
Jennings would like to send Wild
Bill Donovan to the mound today, and
