not pass a man and would not have
been scored on if Buck Weaver and
Jack Fournier had not attempted to
break the long-distance throwing
record for infielders.
Each wide throw "was good for a
run and two were all the Indians re
ceived. That shows how good Lefty
was. Cleveland's first run was a gift
by Weaver. A man was on second,
two were out, and Buck threw away
a bounder that should have made the
third death.
In the tenth inning Jack Fournier
tried to throw out a man at third on
a sacrifice and the ball hasn't been
found yet It was Jack's daily error,
and costly, as usual Thursday his
bungle was good for three enemy
runs, but little attention was paid to
it, as the Hose won.
Fournier will have to do a whole
lot of hitting to keep his position in
the face of his tendency to heave
Weaver, moved to short, has an
excuse. Buck has gauged his throw
from the far corner and the shorter
distance will bother him for a few
days until he regains the range. Mc
Mullin is playing good ball at third
and hit once. Today the Sox open
a four-game set with the Browns in
St Louis.
The dramatic element was present
yesterday when Jack Coombs and
Chief Bender, former stars of the
Mackmen, pitched for Brooklyn and
the Phillies, respectively. Dodgers
won, but both veterans were hit hard
and had to be relieved. Both indi
cated their old form, however, and
the Indian will get several chances
during the season.
Harmon stopped the Reds, while
the Pirates hit two Red pitchers
hard. Hal Chase got his two daily
Lewis' homer with one on tied the
Yanks in the ninth and Hobby's dou
ble in the 11th won. Leonard pitched
good ball.
Washington made four runs in the
ninth to. beat Mackmen. Naborsl
blew after pitching eight good" in
Ty Cobb returned to the game,
poled a double and single and the
Tigers nosed out St Louis. Burns
hit four for Detroit
Joe Stecher, the Nebraska mat
star, tossed Americus in straight falls
at Baltimore, taking less than five
minutes for the two falls. It was soft
for Stecher, the scissors being ap
plied with ease.
Charley Morin defeated Joe Stone,
50 to 43, in a game of the Interstate
Three-Cushion Billiard league at
Al Reich was in bad shape in the
ninth round of his fight with Fred
Fulton in New York and the referee
stopped the battle, awarding the. go
to Fulton. Neither man looked to be
a champion, but what class there was
came from Fulton. He was in bad
shape in the first round when Reich
made a bold attack, but after that it
was all in favor of the westerner.
George Chip won a ten-round deci
sion over Gus Christie in Cleveland.
Chip forced the fighting throughout
Chalmers, with 2,865 pins, took the
lead in the five-man events of the
state bowling tournament at the
