Schalk turned his ankle chasing a
'bad throw from Collins which let in
two runs yesterday, but this morning
1 Manager Rowland and. the Sox train
er said the little gackstop would be
jin today's game with Cleveland, The
(injury was painful and Ray lay on
!the ground, writhing in agony for
several seconds before his mates
peached him.
1 Even should he be fit for duty this
afternoon he will not be as agile and
'speedy as usual, and that means a
great handicap to the club. Lynn
and Jack Lapp are good catchers, but
'neither comes anywhere near the
standard of Schalk, and teamplay
will suffer if he is out of commission.
! If it is. humanly possible-,. Ray will
not miss a game. He likes to play
.baseball for the sport there is in it,
itakes his hard knocks philosophi
cally and sticks to his task. He
seems to realize that he is one of the
most important cogs in the club.
Again Lefty Williams pitched, some
good ball, holding the Tigers score
less, in four innings, yielding three
hits. This is the second time the-youngster-
has picked up. a handicap
and; carried it bravely and compe
tently; His work has been better
than that of any lefthander Rowland
had unblanketed this season and he
should be started in a game before
Detroit has developed a fair de
fense for this season. A team with
the great attacking power of the Sox
has been held to eight runs in four
games, which is pretty tight throt
tling. In three games the Hose have
been unable to make a dent in the
person of Mr. Coveleskie, Jennings'
great lefthander, and do. not act Mke
they will be able to beat him all year.
Fourteen more games remain to play
with the Tigers and the Pole wiU be
able tQ pitch at least six of them.
This is a big day for Cleveland, the
Sox opening;. About 150 Woodland
Bards are representing Cfctcjago, aad
Several firemen scored one put out
and several assists in a blaze in our
building last night and we are think
ing' of sending them on. to Manager
Rowland to act as instructors for
some- of his White Sox athletes.
The team is slumping woefully, the
young pitchers, Hap Felsch and Ray
Schalk being the only ones who are
upholding the honor of 35th st Col
lins is in the most dismal swamp he
has ever penetrated since becoming
a big league star, his hitting and
fielding being both off color.
Ft is futile to think that the added
respensibilities of the captaincy are
responsible for this failing. Ed is
merely suffering something that
comes to most ballplayers at some
time in the season. Being the cog
of wSekl play, the failing is more no
ticeable when it eomes to him.
Since leaving home Eddie- has
done nearly everything wrong, mak
wg two. costly wild throws in five
games. Each, delirious peg has been
responsible for the loss of a game.
This is most unusual for Collins, who
iB generally one of the most accurate; I;
peggacs- iu baseball.
