RAIN KIND TO SOX PITCHERS
CUBS HAVE STARTED
By Mark Shields
Gentle and kindly rain is helping
the White Sox in these troublous
times. Manager Rowland has been
experiencing considerable trouble
with his pitching staff recently, a de
partment which has always been the
strongest division of the South Side
team, and he is glad to have a slight
vacation during which some of the
veteran slabbers can take it easy.
Eddie Cicotte will not be seen in
either of the remaining games
against the Athletics, according to
present plans, but will have recov
ered from an injury to his hip by Sat
urday and will be shot against the
Washington club on that day. Faber
and Jim Scott will operate against
the Mackmen, with Joe Benz a pos
Benz has had a long rest, and,
.though' he did not make an auspi
cious start against the Yanks Mon
day, he was more at fault in his field
ing than pitching and should be good
for frequent exercise. Joe has al
ways been a puzzle to Washington
ajid Mel Wolfgang has also troubled
the Nationals this season.
Once more we are told that the
Sox are slated for a drive to the top
of the American league. This great
onslaught is much .overdue. It was
supposed to be impending when the
South Siders copped a game in
Washington and then played a tie. It
was again on the cards when two
games were won in a four-battle set
at Detroit Then came a setback at
the hands of the Yanks and the drive
had to be started all over again.
This well-known drive certainly
should be started, but there is little
hope so long as the team plays as at
present and so long as some of the
athletes now regarded as stars re
tain that glory. John Collin? 'z '
