nary pitcher. But Bussell Is no ordi
nray pitcher and 'the fans through
the East will realize it before he gets
through with their teams. No mat
ter how the breaks go against him,
Reb continues to work steadily. He
has the nerve and the pitching
goodsOutside of that he Is no good.
Hal Chase 4id not join the Sox
yesterday in Boston, but he was not
greatly missed, owing to Founder's
good work. Hal had business to at
tend to in-New York, but Owner
Prank Farrell wired Callahan that
Chase was satisfied and that there
was no hitch in. the deal. Chase was
expected to report in Boston this
afternoon. Under the trading Jaws,
a player has three days in which to
report after having been bartered,
and Hal may want the little vaca
tion. That Sox outfield , needs consider
able stiffening. Yesterday our sub
urban trio failed td break into the
hit column, Lord, Weaver, Rath,
Fournier and Schalk doing all the
mauling. Weakness in hitting is only
temporary with John Collins, as the
long right fielder has been doing the
share of several men with the club.
Bodie and Mattick are chronic. Mat
tick may start hitting. He has been
in a hard-luck rut, driving the pill
into the hands of some waiting
fielder, but Bodie never did do much
sticking after the first of June, when
the pitchers are in form. Cal's opin
ion of Bodie as a fielder was plainly
shown yesterday when he put Eing
in left, where he had a short, fence
to back him up in case the ball sifted
through his legs.
Rollie Zeider and Babe Bprton
debutted with the Yanks yesterday
-and made good, though Chance's
team lost its fifteenth straight on the
home grounds, Zeider cracked a
single, handled three chances in the
field and swiped a base. Borton was
passed three times out of four up.
Wolter and weeney of the Yanks
played such punk ball that the crowd
oasted them. Fred Falkenberg
pitched his tenth straight victory f pf
Cleveland. Jack Graney got a triple
and two singles; also robbed Zeider
of a triple by a swell catch.
Dauss of the Tigers held the Macks
to two hits in five innings. Then he
let two men get on and Eddie Collins
poled a homer. Collins soaked a triple
in the eighth that scored three more
runs. Plank gave Detroit five safe
ties. Bob Groom fanned 12 St. Louis
batters, but barely nosed out his
game because of punk fielding by
Washington. Milan got three hits
and Gandil two off Hamilton. Only
six flies were-caught in both outfields.
Red Ames, the ex-Giant, pitched a
swell game for Cincinnati, holding
Brooklyn to three hits and blanking
them, fanning five and passing two,
Allen of the Dodgers was hit safely
five times, two of the bingles coming
bunched in the first with a pass for
the only run. John Kling stole a pair
of bases.
Heavy slugging by Wagner, Vfox
and Miller in the final innings beat
Boston after Tyler had held the
Pirates easily for 'five frames. Miller
got two doubles and a single, Viox a
double and triple, and Wagner a dou
ble and single. Lefty Robinson set
the Braves down with seven scattered
Tesreau and Crandall divided the
pitching against St. Louis, doing a
better job than Slim Sallee, who had
to be hoisted. Fletcher, Snodgrass
and Shafer .contributed the Giant hits
that won.
Marvet, a right-handed pitcher
from Cleveland, Tenn., has been
signed by the St. Louis Cards.
Grimes, a pitcher, and Brush, a
first baseban, both from Ottumwa,
have been purchased by Detroit for
$4,000. Grimes has won 11 straight
games, and Burns is batting .500
against Central Association pitching.
Eddie Grant of Cincinnati has
been purchased outright by Manager
McGraw of the Giants. Grant was
