YANKS LEAD BROWNS
B Y ONL Y HALF A GAME
IN PENNANT PURSUIT
"Excuse Our Dust" Remark Hugmen te St. Looie
Aspirants as Westerners Prepare for World Series.
Phils Thrill Fans in Victory Over Giants
ON THE day thnt the management of the Ilrewns announced thnt new Is
the time te send In checks for world"; scries scats, Slsler and his mates
p and lese te the Detroit Tigers.
Phil Ball yesterday broadcast the Info that plans hnd been drawn up
and approved for the changing of the Mound City Park te accommodate
huge crowds. He conceded that the pennant belonged ie the Browns and
that, in order te avoid the rush nnd make sure that the precious pasteboards
would net be wasted, told the fans te send In their du,cats.
This morning. Instead of being out in front, the Browns are looking up
tt the dust of Miller Muggins' Yanks. Six points, n half game, separates
the two contenders for the steenth time this season.
The veteran Walter Jehnsen, always an enigma te the Getham combina
tion, proved as docile ns a lamb esterday. He was pelted rather vigorously
by Ruth nnd bis pals for thirteen hits nnd eight run. Carl Mays, who
failed te last against our unruly Athletics last Saturday, handed the Sennters
just nine hits and one run. The triangle enabled Mays te make bis pitching
record for the season even Stephen with thirteen and thirteen.
While en the subject of the submarine ball pltrher. It might be said it
it due te his failure te win a majority of his games that the Yanks are just
about keeping their beads above water. Last year Ma.s ranked fifth among
the American League pitchers with twenty-seven wins nnd nine defeats
and was in the main responsible for the winning of the pennant.
THIS year Mays has flivvercd miserably. After a geed start he
leent fleaic, losing game after game and eeing batted out of the
box a number of times. Had it net been for the acquisition of Jee
Bush ever the winter, the Yanks would be fortunate te be hovering
around third place.
Battle Deivn the Stretch
IF MAYS finds himself the battle down the stretch will be that much easier
for the Yankees. If he doesn't Hugging will be sorely tried with Heyt,
Shawkey and Bush. Jenes, tee, would be a big help If he showed improve
ment. His leg for the season shows eleven victories and the same number of
reverses. Last year Jenes wen twenty-three nnd lest sixteen with Bosten,
a distinctly Inferior team te the Yanks.
All the king's horses and all the home runs could net help the Browns.
Ken Williams made his thirty-sixth four-ply shot of the season off Jehnsen,
the former Pertlnnd star, in the seventh Inning with a couple of men en base,
but the Browns failed te win. Slsler bit safely for his thirty-seventh consecu
tive game nnd is but three behind Cobb'" record.
Bebby Veach proved the whole show for Cobb and his team. With Urban
Shecker the leading pitcher in games wen in the American League en
the hill, the Tyger outfielder knocked out a pnir of home runs. The first
came in the first inning with one en and the second in the seventh inning
with another en.
Jehnsen ably assisted Veach In the Detroit victory. Up te the seventh
Inning the Coast lad allowed but one hit.
Dan Beene, the Southern League recruit, pitching for the Indians, lest
his fifth game since coming North, the White Se finding him for seven runs
and ten bits. Leveret te, one of Gleasen's prize rookies, held Speaker and
his mates te eight hits.
Beb Hasty twirled his second brilliant game in a week against the Red
Sex, but lest the verdict. 2 te 1. He allowed but four hits, two of them by
Kip Cellins, who opposed him en the mound.
Twe bad innings the sixth nnd seventh, spelled defeat for Lanky Beb.
Galloway was in the main responsible for the Beaneaters" first run. He
dropped a threw with an cny out in sight and a moment later threw into
the Sex dugout with n double play in sight, nnd Rip Cellins, who bad
In the seventh a double and a single ceunted.the second marker. The
A'b made tbeir only run in the first, when Harris dropped Hauser's fly.
Miller beat out a hit nnd Ruel checked in with n passed ball. During the
next eight rounds the Macks made five hits and had but one opportunity te
score in the eighth, when with one down Miller singled and went te third en
Perkins" blew for a base. (Jalloway fanned and Tillie Walker skied.
Pittsburgh lest a great opportunity te crawl up en the Giants when they
lest te the Cubs. Our Phils did their part well by handing McGraw's costly
east an S-te-4 reverse.
THE xcay these Phils pounded Art Xehf. the Giants' pri:ed south
pair, made the few fortunate fain who saw the paitimc thrill
with joy. Fifteen hits, including triples by Williams and Rapp and
doubles by Henline, Lee, Parkinson and Leslie, unit te all sectors
of the ball park.
Slwtver of Binglcs
EVERY member of the team had one or mere hits and three former
Giants. Rapp, Walker nnd Henline, hnd n most pleasant day. The
first-named had three hits nnd worked around third as he used te de in
St. Paul. Walker and Henline had n pair nf blngles apiece.
Lee Meadows had one bad inning, the second, when the Giants made
n quartet of hits, one nf which was a questionable double down the first -base
foul line that looked se foul that LcMic did net even make n fry for it.
Twe runs scored en the hit. After the ecend Meadows was invincible,
holding the Ginnts completely at bay. Much te the delight of the crowd.
Irish Mcusel failed te hit safely in four trips te the platter.
The Pirates had a 0-te-4 lend going into the eighth, but could net held
it, KUIefer's Cubs making four In that frame and two In the ninth for a
10-te-7 victory. Beth Aldridge and Hamilton, who started, were bombed
from the hill.
The Cards, with Jeff Pfeffer en the mound, eutpitching Couch, defeated
the Reds. te 1. The former Dedger allowed but six hits t eight off Couch.

Sisler Still Gaining
GEORGE SISLER, the king of base hitting in the American League, is
en one of his biggesl batting sprees since coming t6 the Browns. In
the last week the former Mlclugander gained eight points and is new batting
at the excellent clip of 410.
Te date Sisler has hit in thirty -seven games, which brings him te
'within three games of the modern rensecutive-gnmc hitting streak held by
Tyrus Raymond Cobb.
Cobb is trailing the Browns' star by twenty-five points, the largest
number this season between the two star batters. Cobb, in turn, is only
eighteen points ahead of Tris Speaker, manager of the Cleveland Indians.
During the last week Cobb fell off in his hitting, losing four points, while
Speke gained the same number.
During the week Slsler regained the lead in runs scored from Lu Blue,
of the Tigers, who held the mark for several weeks. Sis is new credited
with 118 markers. In addition te leading in these two departments, Sisler
sets the pace for most hits with 225 and with the greatest number of stolen
bases, forty -seven.
Jee Hauser dropped seven points during the week, but still leads the
Mackmen with a mark of .337. He is followed by Galloway, who sained
two points and is new hitting .335. Miller, with .332, is the only aiksr
Athletic in the select class.
Other .333 bitters in the American League are Heilmann, Detroit,
.858; Tobin. St. Leuis, .340; Schang. New Yerk. .333; Harris, Bosten,
.328: Williams. St. Leuis, .327; Pipp, New Yerk, .327; Burns, Bosten,
.327, and Veach, Detroit, .325.
Rogers Hernshy, of the Cardinals, like his fellow-townsman, Slsler,
made n 6ain ever the week of two points, which brings him te .301 and gives
him a geed lead in the batting race. Hornsby ulse leads in home runs and
in most hits in the senior circuit.
Mnx Carey is the leading base stealer, with forty-one, and also the
pathfinder in number of runs scored, with 118.
Curt Walker, who holds the lead among the Phils' batters, dropped
twelve points ever the week, his worst less of the entire season. He is new
hitting at a .330 clip. Meadows, Henline, Williams, Wrightstone and
Fletcher are all hitting ever the .300 mark.
OTHER .300 hitters in the Rational are: Tierney, Pittsburgh,
.376; Bigbee, Pittsburgh, .334; Grimes. Chicago, ,35.; Snyder,
tfew Yerk, ,3e; Stengel. Xete Yerk, .351; Holtechcr, Chicago,
