ing with the excitement that had
gone before, though the situation
was dramatic enough when Harmon
got three balls and two strikes, on
Cheney with two out in the 17th and
the bases filled. It would have been
much more spectacular if Larry had
whacked the pill safely instead of
v. receiving a pass from his hurling en
emy. Both second basemen and short
fielders starred frequently. Evers
handled ten phances at second and
Bridwell repeated at short, neither
erring. Miller Huggins, holding down
the keystone for the Cards, accepted
16 opportunities, and Charley

pan of grounders, threw seven Cubs
oat at first and caught one .fly.
Maybe John McGraw wouldn't like
"to have Bridwell to fit into his infirm
infield. Al is playing about the best
game of his career defensively, and

man on the 'Cub team. 3ght times
yesterday he faced the Card pitchers.

were occupied. Twice he singled
lome runs and the other three timp.s
walked. How he is regarded in the j
pinches is shown by Harmons action
in the 17th. Two men were on and
one out Bridwell was 'purposely
passed to take a chance of Archer,
who had already made four hits.
Mike Mitchell was a much-cussed
guy by the scribes. If he had caught
McLean's fly in the ninth they could
have gone home early.
Now we are ready to boost Lefty
Pierce. The young southpaw came
through with a good game last week,
but we have been fooled too often
boosting the Cub pitchers on one
good performance and we reserved
judgment He worked five innings I

which began to overtake him in the
fourth, in which the Cards knocked
three hits and scored their second

If he had' been able to stay in the
game it would probably have been
an easy win for him. He is still slight-

Lavender wasa frost, and'bifd to
be rescued by Cheney, Larry was a
whale in the last eight rounds after

Archer cracked four hits and Zim

whacked a pair of double which fig
