By a sensational ninth-inning rally
and then a tenth-inning repeat them
thar Giants made their wild streak of
wins total 23 yesterday. St Louis
had 'em going all along the first
eight innings add practically had the
game sewed up. Then, after one was
out in the. ninth frame McCarthy

While the Sox loafed yesterday
Boston increased its lead on the
American league teams by copping

Cleveland. Boston has three to play
with New York and three with Phila
delphia. The former may give Bos
ton a strong run, but, judging from
the way Washington trimmed the

The Boston Braves seem to be a
bit jealous of New York's winning
streak. They made their sixth
straight win yesterday by trimming
Pittsburgh. '
