the team leaves New York. For the
simple reason that Hal is not popular
with the Gotham fans and they are
hissing and roasting every play he
makes. This does not tend to im
prove the work of a fielder. He
knows that if he makes an error
there will be loud mirth from the
v stands, and for that reason becomes
1 over anxious. An example of this
came yesterday when he made a bad
toss to Cicotte trying to catch a run
ner. The error was disastrous to the
Sox chances, but all Hal got from
the stands was a few remarks about
Jxxs punkness.
It is becoming more apparent ev
ery day that Callahan must find a
place for Jack Fournier, pushed out
of the first-basing job by Chase.
Since his removal Jack has per
formed as pinch hitter twice and
each time delivered a single. He
can hardly be made into an outfield
er on this Eastern trip. It will take
lots of morning practice to teach him
to chase flies, and there will be no
opportunity for this until the White
Sox get back to the Thirty-fifth
street lot. Fournier should certainly
be a better fielder "than Bodie with a
few days' practice, and has better
prospects of developing, as he is will
ing to work and learn from anyone
who can give him pointers. The
only thing that kept Bodie in the
game was his hitting. Now that
Ping is losing his. eye he has no li
cense to be in the Jineup.
The Yanks scored all their runs in
the fifth inning off Cicotte on five
hits and a pair of boots. Lange and
k White, who divided the remainder of
the pitching, went through un
scathed. Ford was tight against the
Sox when hits meant runs. "
Boston broke Cy Falkenberg's
winning streak after he had copped
ten straight games, tieing Walter
Johnson's mark for the year. The
long comeback was not hit often,
but the bingles were bunched. Bedi
ent had no trouble with the Naps.
Harry Hooper got a triple and single
and Yerkes singled and doubled.
Joe Jackson amassed one hit, a dou
ble. Ty Cobb and Edgar Willett soaked
homers and Washington made four
errors behind Tom Hughes. That
was enough to give Detroit another
game. Cobb also poled a single and
Moriarity clubbed a triple and single.
Willett pitched strongly against the
Connie Mack's pitching staff is all
shot to pieces. Chief Bender was hit
so hard that the St. Louis Browns
could only get two bingles and failed
to cross the plate. Fourteen straight
for the Athletics. Hamilton was
easy for the Macks, Baker getting
a homer and Barry and Bender each
The Philly Nationals are also blow
ing. They only ran up ten runs on
thirteen hits off three Cincinnati
pitchers while Brennan was holding
the Reds to four safeties. Beals
Becker blasted two homers and Gav
vy Cravath tore loose two triples and
a double. Lobert smashed a double
and two singles.
Brooklyn got to Babe Adams in the
ninth inning for six runs, pulling
down the Pirates' big lead, which
had been secured by pounding three
Dodger pitchers. Red Smith pushed
a double into the ninth frame when
the bases were loaded, shoving hpme
the winning markers. John Hum
mell had a field day at bat with a sin
gle, two doubles and a triple.
The St. Louis Cards pestled a quar
tet of Boston pitchers for a dozen
hits, including two triples by Kon
netchy, and counted twelve times.
Slim Sallee eased up after his team
had a big lead. Sallee and Maran
vffle each smacked homers. Magee
of the Cards and Lord of the Braves
each poled two singles and a double.
Jake Stahl of the Boston Red Sox
is up against it for pitchers "and is
.sending out a call for help. Earl
Mosely, who was with the world's
champions on the training trip, has
been ordered back from the Youngs-
