Consider the White Sox. No team
in the American league does at the
present time, so we might as well
take up the burden.
Rowland's people have the most
erratic system of running bases ever
seen on a ball field. Probably this
comes under the head of baffling the
opposition, Cut so far it has not
worked out with good results to the
locals. One moment they are run
ning wild on the bases, laboring un
der the minor league theory that
wild throws are plentiful and will aid
them in reaching the counting sta
tion. The next moment they travel on
leaden legs and get nowhere near the
results they should from the hits and
mistakes of the enemy. In the first
inning yesterday John Collins was on
second when Ed Collins slashed a
beauty single through the infield
John could have scored without tir
ing himself, but Ed Murphy held him
at third base while the Yanks kicked
the ball around after the throw-in.
'Because John stuck to third and
did not bother the Yanks, Ed was
held at first base. If John had been
sent home, as he should have been,
there would have been a play for
him and Eddie could have sneaked
to " second, from which station he
would have had a chance to score.
Later the Sox stole or tried to
steal at the wrong time, the batters
failed to protect the baserunners,
and numerous things were done that
are not good basebalL Eight Hose
batters fanned. Joe Jackson poled
two hits, but when the bases were
filled in the first inning he was called
out on three pitched balls without re
moving his bat from his shoulder.
One Chicago' team won yesterday
and the other, lost. The difference
American League. New York 3,
Chicago 2; Detroit 3, Washington 2;
Boston 5, Cleveland 0.
National League. Chicago 1, Bos
ton 0; Brooklyn 3, Pittsburgh 2; Cin
cinnati 3, New York 2; Philadelphia
6, St Louis 5.
Dispatches from the east indicate
Italian Joe Gans is making good.
He'll soon get a match with the
Polish Sam McVey.
There's nothing like a winning
streak for publicity unless it's a los
ing streak.
"Mr. Marcel Peacean Del Sar of Ar
gentina, S. A., is behind the boxing
movement in South America, Pea can,
Pecan? Oh, yes!
McVey, Jeanette and Wills are
leaving for South America, which just
about leaves Battling Jim Johnson in
possession of the exclusive rights i to
San Langford.
Isn't it high time someone created
a few new women's tennis titles for
' Molla Bjurstedt to acquire?
"Hippodrome Show Will Co on
Tour Next Season." Headline.
Sounds like an advance notice of a
wrestling troupe.
Those Pittsburgh Pirates still con
tend that Sisler belongs to 'em, but
Fielder Jones argues possession Is
still nine-tenths of .the law.
