Ty had no intention of landing his
bat in the stand. If he had hurt any
one he would have been properly
sorry, but that excuse will hardly
9 Ty's act, however, will serve to call
attention to some of the umpiring.
The work in the -American this sea
son has not been -up to standard, ac
cording to general criticism around
the circuit Out as Comiskey park
we had had little to complain of, but
other cities have protested, especial
ly the east.
Williams and Zimmerman are back
Those two sentences naturally go to
gether. For Cy and Heinie are the
main factors in the North Side on
slaught and their bats are responsi
ble for many runs. With this wal
loping pair in harness again, another
uprising of the Cubs is about due and
the locals are not too for behind yet
to stand a show for the top of the
heap n short order.
Zim knocked three hits yesterday
and Williams two. Pittsburgh, in the
four games slated there, should not
be a great stumbling block.' Cooper
and Mamaux will give the Cubs trou
ble, but the other members of the
Pirate staff who are available for
duty have not been difficult for the
Cubs this season.
Thursday is an off day with Tink
er's people, who return home Frjday
to encounter the Boston Braves in a
five-game series, including one double-header.
Two double bills are
slated with the Giants, the rear guard
of the eastern clubs on this trip.
fl George McConnell returned home
from St. Louis, nursing a lame knee.
George weakened the limb in the
long game against Pittsburgh and
hurt it again knocking fungoes Sun

now, but, fortunately, Tinker is well
fixed with pitchers to meet the east
ern clubs. He was surprised at the
, Showing of Prendergast and Mike Is j
now to take his regular turn in the
box. He has allowed fewer runs per
game than any member of the Cub
Johnny Dundee and Ever Hammer
should put up a hot battle tomorrow
at East Chicago, where they clash
for ten rounds. This is to be no
"Bitten Root" fiasco, lauded to the
skies when .there was nothing to
praise. Hammer and Dundee each
have the goods. They have proved
it time after time. Neither is a po
lite chap in the ring. Dundee has a
fighting style different from anything
Hammer has ever encountered and
this may prove troublesome in the
early rounds. Hammer will weigh
in the neighborhood of 135 pounds,
and Dundee will be a trifle lighter.
This is nothing new, as it is a long
time since the wop fought any one of
his own poundage. Three thousand
seats will be on sale at a dollar, each.
The pasteboards will be on sale on
the trains and at the East Chicago
ball park.
Pulkmfn and Joliet soccer teams,
playing off a deadlock in the Chicago
District league, went to a scoreless
tie. The teams will meet at a date
yet to be decided and play for the
Jackson cup.
