means that Commy -will have to deal
"with the Naps for the- services of
Beall, as the latter could not be legal
ly the property of the Brewers if
waivers had not been secured. The
fact that Beall was sent back by
Cleveland does-not mean he is a poor
player. He batted over .350 with
Denver last year, and tore off sev
eral extra-base wallops. He had little
chance with Cleveland. Birmingham
has one of the best regular outfields
in the business, and is well' provided
with substitutes in Ryan, Liebold and
Lelivelt. There was simply no place
for Beall after Ryan took Birmy's
place and began to deliver the clouts.
Beall has had chances with the Sox
before, but is now a much improved
Another point on which, to grow
joyful is.the two doubles collected by
Chick Mattick yesterday. The speedy
center fielder cracked one to left and
one to right, and each was a healthy
smashT If Matty can only strike his
stride, and Beall is added to the Sox
roster, the outfield will be consider
ably bolstered up, and with Chase In
the infield the -prospects lo(jk .good
for a fight all the way.
' Every White Sox player but Lord
and Schalk got at least one hit off
Leonard. Morris Rath dinged two,
an ambitious feat when it is consid
ered that Morris is a left-handed bat
ter and was facing a southpaw.
Jim Scott was a whole team in
himself. Hooper and Ball each got
two hits off him, and that was the ex
tent of the Red Sox damage with the
stick. Two of the blows were very
-scratchy. Only one man explored as
far as second base,.and.-third was an
impenetrable forest to the Boston
gents all afternoon. Jim blew loose
one slashing double, and then aston
ished the multitude by stealing
Jack Fournfer continued to make
bis manager forget all about Hal
Chase, scoring one run with a double,
and. copping 13 chances in the field.
. Chance Yanks almost won a
game on their home lot, forcing the
Naps' to go ten rounls to cop. Then
Graney. delivered a single that
counted two runs. All the Yank tal
lies came on two homers by Wolter,
one with a man on base. McQpn
nell pitched well, not allowing Joe
Jackson.a hit. Some record. Mitch
ell relieved Steen in the third for
Cleveland and blanked the Y.nks.
Connie Mack used Cottrell, a
youngster from the New"York State
League, on the slab against Detroit.
He was bit safely thirteen times, but
the Athletics got the same number
off Willett and bunched them. Craw
ford of Detroit got four hits and so
did Rube Oldring, two of the Rube's
going for two bases. Frank Baker
smacked a triple and brace of sin
gles. Manager StoVall of the Browns
shook up his batting order and the
new alignment yielded sixteen Tiits
and twelve' runs. Every man on the
team but Pratt and MitchelUgot two
hits. Washington got eleven hits off
Mitchell. George Mullin. failed to
deliver1 again for the Nationals, and
Nick Altrock was soft for the
r With the bases loaded ig the first
inning Chief Wilson "of Pittsburgh
cleared them with a triple. That fin
ished Eppa Rixey, the Philly south
paw, and was enough-to win the
game. Adams held, the Phils to eight
scattered hits. Artie Hofman made
the most remarkable diving catch of
a fly from Cravath's bat-ever seen in
Pittsburgh. Wilson also got a dou
ble and single.
Nap Rucker held Cincinnati to
two hits, which made Johnson's good
pitching against the Dodgers useless.
Johnson received poor support in
the pinches.
Chris Von der Ahe, owner of the
St Louis Browns when they won the
pennant in 1885-86-87-88, and one of
the characters of the younger days
of baseball, died yesterday in SL
