Tomorrow the White Sox will be
out on the South Side lot, still, ac
cording to their box score records,
suffering from a pitiful weakness
with the bat We are told that the
rumors that radical shake-ups and
the possibility of the sale of several
men has had a psychological effect
on the playing of the Hose, and that
since that story got out one game
has been won and one tied.
But just notice that in 14 innings
yesterday the Sox made a total of
five blows and had two of their runs
blown home on errors; and this psy
chological stuff is given a jab where
it" lives. Ed Collins got two hits, and
Schalk, McMullin and Jackson one
each. Thirteen noble athletes fanned,
one, Johnson accounting for six of
them in the last four and two-thirds
innings, only one hit being made in
that time.
. In the tenth Schalk was on second
base with one out, but Johnson
fanned Ness and John Collins.
Of their ten games in the east the
Sox copped four, which' does not
mean any rise in the percentage col

world's series crowd on the South
Side next fall. Ed Collins appears to
be emerging from his batting slump,
but the other men are still as badly

pitchers yesterday, a pair of left
handers and Johnson, but the attack
against each brand of pitching was
equally futile.
Cleveland comes tomorrow for two
games and the Sox will do well at
this stage of the proceedings to take
one. Jim Scott is being groomed for
one crack at the league leaders, hay
