excellent eye and makes the aliens
pitch to him perfectly. He is one of
the fastest in the league once he
reaches first base, and can use his
head in sympathy with his feet when
traveling the paths. -.
Even without Good the-Cubs will
not be percentage fodder for the
other clubs. The punch remains and
the pitching is improving each day.
Standridge is making himself a reg
ular of the first water and Zabel and
Vaughn stand with him.
While Good is out of commission
Pete Kniseley will play in the outfield.
Heretofore Pete has been no scintil
lating star, but he should acquire
mountainous confidence from the five
hits he registered in the final Brook
Take it all around, Cub prospects
are not gloomy. If the team can hold
up until Good gets back it has an ex
cellent chance of forcing the running
through the season and landing at
the top of the heap.
Twenty-four hits were made yes
terday. Kniseley had five, Phelan,
Fisher, Schulte and Williams three
each, and Standridge and Bresnahan
two each. Saier had but one, retuv
ing early when a safe lead was se
cured. The three outfielders ham
meid 11 hits for 17 bases.
Pittsburgh can whip all the other
Federal clubs, defeat with ease teams
that are impossible for the Whales,
yet Tinker's aggregation has had lit
tle trouble with the league leaders
this season. They have met four
times, and three victories have gone
to the Whales.
Unless some team gets a top-heavy
lead in the next two weeks, and th'at
seems unlikely at present, the Whales
have a chance for the bunting. With
in that space of time Tinker will have
a pair of pitchers to help out Hendrix
and McConnell, the only men effec
tive at present
Rankin Johnson is stiff and sore,
but warm weather and a chance to
do morning practice should take this
oji of him. Prendergast and Black
are surely about to arrive, and Mor
decai Brown is good for one excellent
game a week. Brennan is a mystery.
Nothing can be expected of him now,
and there is no surety that he will be
in winning form at any time this sea
son. That is a hard blow, for the
southpaw was being counted on.
The Whales yesterday were more
like the Whales of old a big-inning
team with the power to board a pitch
er all together and slap his offerings
around. Five hits in one frame are
about as many as the Tinks have
been getting in full games. Wilson
cracked a double and two singles.
In the next few days the White Sox
have a chance to make some head
way in the American league race.
Connie Mack's team will be here for
a series, and, with Eddie Collins play-,
ing against his old mates and Frank
Baker out of the fray, the Sox are
not worrying much about the results.
In the meantime Detroit and Yan
kees, the teams leading the Hose, will
be attacking each other in the Mich
igan city. Should the Sox get a ma
jority of the games from Philadelphia
they will profit, as one of the leaders
will suffer. And with the Mackmen
and Washington out of the way,
Rowland will be ready for the Yanks
and Red Sox, which seem to be the
best teams of the east His pitching
staff will be in rattling good shape
and capable of coping with whatever
Russell will probably open against
the Macks and Reb was always
tough for that crowd, even when Col-,
lins and Baker were giving it
strength. An added bit of joy is the,
fact that Ray Schalk's suspension
has been lifted and the little catcher
will again be behind the bat.
