Mulligan has all the earmarks of
a star and his future is worth more
than a couple of ball games. Even
should the Cubs lose now and then
because of the youngster's tendency
to explode, the club will be the gain
er in the end, for Eddie will gain con
fidence and settle to his work.
Mulligan and McCarthy showed
l more co-operation- around second
base in yesterday's afterpiece than
any pair of any dub who have ex
hibited on the North Side. Between
them they handled 22 out of 24
chances, .each making an error, and
four double plays were turned, Mul
ligan taking part in all.
Recently the Cubs have been spe
cializing in the squeeze play to
count runs, but the noble stars still
have something to learn about how
this feat is performed. In the second
inning of the second game Vic Saier
was on third with one out and Mul
ligan was at bat. Evidently the sig
nal for the squeeze was flashed.
Mulligan floored a perfect bunt,
but Ames grabbed it and shot Saier
! dead at the plate. Mully's share of
the stunt was correctly carried out,
but Saier had not started for the
plate until after the ball was hit Vic
either missed the signal or was not(
thinking about his work. Such a play'
would be costly in a close battle.
Lavender and Seaton both failed
to last, and Packard rescued in each
game, saving the second. The first
was gone before he got a job. Schulte
poled two hits per game. McCarthy
and Zim collected three in the two
Hendrix, Pierce and Zeider were
left at home this trip. Rollie will re
w join the club later, when his wife's
health improves. Hendrix and Pierce
are not in shape to pitch.
Joe Jackson's recent uprising with
the bat is the one little ray of sun
shine in the play of the White Sox.
Joe has poked 13 hits in nis last 20
times at bat, topping off yesterday
jyith two singles, a double and triple ,
in four tries. Outside of this ster
ling stuff there is little to bast of.
Having been licked frequently be
cause of poor hitting, the Sox
switched their play, swatted 14 safe
ties for 19 bases, and still lost, Dave
Danforth losing all his cunning when
the pinch arose.
Jackson and Ness, who acted as
pinch hitter, were the only boys who
could deliver when hits meant runs.
It was no trouble at all for Rowland
ites to get on base, but they took
root on arrival. Panning the umpire
is one alibi for this defeat, but no ali- i.
bi would have been needed if the hits
had yielded as they should have. ,
The Sox didn't like the way Bill
Dineen judge Danforth's shoots.
Fournier batted against a right
hander and played firs,t base. Jack
doubled once and scored on a wallop
by Jackson, but he was helpless on
other occasions. There were no
flaws in his fielding. But it might
be a good stunt to let Ness play that
first bag against right-handers,
southpaws and ambidextrous guys.
He can outfield the Frenchman, and
he had "no trouble in singling against
a right-hander in his only effort
The entire team will undoubtedly
play with greater energy when Ness
is in the game, for the remaining in
fielders have more faith in his abil- 1
ity to catch what they throw and can
make their plays faster.
Sox in Detroit again today.
Yanks climbed within game of first
