natural pride in wanting to do every
thing that Eddie does, and do it well.
He is careful not to slow Eddie up

He is a better running mate than
Jack Barry, as Collins is discovering.
By the time these two young men
have played together for a few
months fans will wonder how the
Barry-Collins combination ever cre
ated a sensation. And that isn't
knocking the Mackman. It is boost
ing Weaver, but no more than he de
serves. In the fifth inning Weaver made a
play that bordered on the supernat
ural, a play that would have been
impossible to more than two or three
shortfielders. Gainor was on third
base when Cady bounded a fast one
through the box. Buck skidded over
to his left, took the ball with his left
hand and shot accurately to S chalk
while off balance and on a dead run
toward first base. Gainor was nailed.
Later Buck went to his right after a
hard hit ball and flagged Tris Speaker
at the place. Two runs were cut off
and this was exactly the margin by
which the Sox won. Is Weaver val
uable? There's the answer.
In the seventh the Sox almost made
a record in scoring a run. E. Collins
walked, went clear to third on Four
nier's sacrifice and come in on John
Collins' long fly. A run without a hit
or error. John Collins started one
rally and also soaked in two runs.
Jim Scott was hit safely ten times,
but was tight in the pinches.

Tinker got the best pitching for
two consecutive games yesterday
against Baltimore that his hurlers
have shown this season. Which
seems to bear out the Whale man
ager's contention that with warm
weather his curving corps would
show some real ability.
Mike Prendergast and George Mc
Connell each allowed the Terrapins
three hits. McConnell was unfortu
nate enough to lose his game because
the Whales couldn't hit Geo. Suggs.
Prendergast showed the best game.
While he was hit as hard as his sta
ble mate his control was much better.
He staked out only one pass, while
McConnell granted seven. 0
Both games were good, upstand
ing attractions, well-played and fast.
The first was run off in an hour and
17 minutes, and it only required
three hours and 12 minutes to com
plete both undertakings.
The Whales are only a single game
out of first place and a victory for
them while Pittsburgh is losing would
send a third Chicago team to the top
in its league, the Sox and Cubs now
heading the American and National,
So far the Federal league has not
shown a team with better basic abil
ity than the Whales. The only
troublesome spot locally is short,
where Jimmy Smith has not hit as
well as we expected. But he is young
and will profit by experience.
Buffalo, with Harry Lord, former
Sock, as a member, will debut on the
North Side today.
There is a big change in the de
meanor of the Cubs on the ball field.
From the first of the season Bresna
