MONDAY, JULY 2. IMT.
This Week Tigers Will Get Last Chance Before Fall To Gain on White Son THREE weeks of steady, sturdy baseball ran plant the Tigers on the perch wh**rn now roost the Red Sox and the White Sox. No spec tacular winning streak will br needed. All that will be required i* aonie more of that conalatent two wlna in three atarta play that featured the Tiger drive during the month of June. During the next three weeka. Detroit will meet Chicago, Boston and New York in turn. The Navinltea will do their battling upon the home lot thruout the preaent crisis. The White Sox will be at home to Boston and New York, but will visit Detroit for the Tiger tilt. Thta series will begin Tuesday afternoon. Five games are scheduled, two of them on Wednesday. There ftiay be a sixth game added. There la a lone hangover from the spring aeries which was scheduled for a September date. If I*etrolt goes well against the pacemakers, this game probably will be sandwiched Into the Thursday or Friday program. The following week will Sod the Red Sox In Detroit. At the same time Boston will he at Chicago The remainder of the month will be devoted by all hands to the harvesting of more or less soft picking, the western clubs having a slight advantage because Boston and New York each must take a whirl at Cleveland's Indians, who are none to easy to subdue at times. It is not likely tha* Boston will make up a great deal of ground on this road trip, even tho Ruth will be back on the slab Nor Is It likely that the Yankees will more than hold their own The White Sox may continue to run the league ragged and pile up such a lead that the pennant race will be a parade after the first of August. That would be fatal for Detroit, because after ihis series, the Hose and Tigers will do little Jousting among themselves until the autumn, and that little will avail his Bengal nibs nothing if he is not within striking distance. The only way to make certain that the Rowlandites will not spurt out of hailing distance Is for Detroit to win this series at Navtn field this week. If Tige does not win this series, there Is nothing that he can do there after to win the pennant away from Chicago. There may be a combina tion of circumstances that will bring the White Sox hack to earth, but that ■would be none of Tige s doings. He booted hLs big chance last week. One more is all that he gets. Because of last week's flivver, this series cannot bam! Detroit an edge on Chicago All a sweeping triumph can do will be to keep Chicago from pretty definitely eliminating Detroit. This same thing will be true of the Boston series next week It likewise will be true of the New York series week after next. If the Tigers should capture all three of these groups of encounters, however, and play at Chicago is reasonably oven, the Tigers would be likely to find themselves in second place at the end of the month, or so near to second place that they would be very satis factorily placed for the home stretch drive The Team Is Ready. NOW is the time The Tigers never will be in better shape to start something than they are right now For the first time this season, an American league club has a batting average that Is approximate |v what would he expected of a first division club In this league This club is Detroit. The Tiger clouting average this morning was 254, the high mark of the season for the league and well in advance of anything the rest of the circuit has to offer The team is hitting well up and down the line Bush is back around the .250 mark, which where Donle lived ■when he was a star on attack. Burns is on the upgrade Vitt is helping for the first time this year Cobb still Is a wild man with that flail of his Veach Is the Clouting Bobby of old. Spencer and Stanage both are bat ting well. Best of all. Harry Heilman at last has come thru as a 3ftft bats man This morning the gentlemanly Coaster was recorded as paddling the apple for an average of 311. the highest mark he over owned at this stage of a major league season. The pitching is uniformly good It broke bndlv in the second game Sunday, but that means nothing That the Tigers were able to score seven tallies after Sothoron had acquired an eight tally lead in the sixth is a tip off that conditions were not normal The slabbing collapse can be blamed on the terrific heat that beat down upon the park thruout the long, sultry afternoon Fielding suffered equall> with the flinging That game was no test of ability. The club as a whole never will be in better condition to beat back the three pace makers than it will he during the three weeks that are ahead If the Tigers don't rash now particularly against Chicago —there need be no anxietv among the bugs regarding the little matter of world series accommodat ions at Savin field. Just now the Jungaleers are three games behind New York, eight de cisions back of Boston, and nine skirmishes to the rear of the flying Chi cagoots. It is ver\ likely tha* a Tiger triumph over Comiskev's entrv this week would hand the lead bark to Boston Then Tige would have to knock the Red Box down for the second time this year All the fireworks this month aren't d.ved for the Fourth. Congratulations For Ty. IT I.S OCR pleasant duty to recall that T. Cobh will attempt this afternoon to get a base hit or two. This is particular!) significant because Mr. Cobb has hit «afelv in each of the la.sf 30 games that he has played, thus breaking all modern major league records for consistent blngle banging except one of 40 straight games, established by himself In 1911. The las* record to go overboard was that of 29 games, which Zarh Wheat created last fall The I’each has made 55 hits for 92 bases during his run this netting him a batting average of 4fift and a slugging average of .780, Incidentally, the Wallopping Jewel from Georgia has boosted his season's grand average up to 3RI He is shooting at 390 That is the gap he wants to hold this season, and onre he Is there, he will Invite Speaker to Join in the festivities, providing the pace appeals to the Texan Another swafster note of vital Interest has to do with Bill James Bill made only three base hit* all last season That was a normal campaign for hint But this same Mr. James has manufactured all of six base hits before this season is half over, and he Is glorying in the astounding average of .286 Give the big hnv credit He's making base hits grow where none ever flourished before. Jimmy Callahan Is thru Hans Wagner Is managing the Tiratea Cal lahan Is a smart baseball man He failed twice with the White Sox and once with the Pirates because he never had the confident of his men. He felt It necessarv to be upstage at all times His exclusiveness and haughty air led his plaver* to believe that he thought he was better than they Cal lahan Is out because he has been too much of a snob.

Value of St. Louis Series||| Hangs on Monday’s Game] Victory For Detroit Is Needed To Avert Split BT 1 nns, July s.—The aucceaa : of the Tiger invasion of St. I/vtls depends upon the result o f Monday # game, which w ill close the series. A victory will give Detroit four vic tories in six game#. That will b« very satlsfactorv. A defeat will mean an even br*«ak. which will not suit the purposes of Mr. Jennings in any respect. Dauss is expected »o pitch against the Rrowns this aft ernoon Kooh may oppose him If I Koob does. Dauss should win This , arrangement will leave Ooveleskle ! to open against Chicago In Detroit 1 Tuesday afternoon The Tigers are anxlou# to get out IRt IjOiils. The heat has been ter rific and several of the athletes have been well nigh out They aren't accustomed to such weather. The weird brenk at the end of Sun \ day’s second game is attributed en tirely to the hens. which caused pitchers and defensive players to wilt Young was unable to play at all Sunday Bobby Jones took his place and did very well. His fleld- Ing was good and his batting more than good The first game Sunday was a reg ular tilt Bernie Boland and Ernie Hamilton engaged In a* pretty a hurling duel as ever set fans on edge. Bernie had an edge all the way. because in the third Jones walked and scored on Severeid’s bad throw The Browns never did score. Hamilton blew in the ninth and his team mates soared with him Heiltnann opened with a single and Burns crashed into a triple Jones got an infield single. Pratt’s error on Stanage filled the bases Burns tallied on Boland’s grounder, and 1 Jones cajne In on Bush’s sacrifice fly Vitt squeezed Stanage home. ' Stanage really was quite a hero.
