should worry. To add to the high
class laurels grabbed by Cicotte in
his no-hit game Saturday, Jim Scott
stepped forth Sunday and held the
Detroit Tigers right where he want
'ed them. The eight hits and two
runs that they gathered off Scott
. were not even threatening, for the
Sox had run up their six tallies be
fore a Tiger crossed the home plate.
Chicagoans who have been to the
Cub games sq far can appreciate
what Detroiters sat through to wit
ness the game. It wa3 blame near
freezing. Yet 15,000 fans turned out
to see "them thar" Sox perform.
We are inclined to think that al
though the grandstanders and
bleacherites saw the home team lose,
they had to hand it to the "visiting
nine. Rowland's boys put up SOME
came. With a pitcher going like
Scott was, with his mates hitting be
hind him, there is little Chance of the
Tigers or any other crew coming out
of the fray with first honors.
When Clarence Rowland's Sox
come to town Thursday for the open
ing home game of the season they
deserve a record-breaking crowd.
The boys have been playing good
ball, if anybody should ask you.
If the Sox crew could, ruin the
shooting staffs of Berlin's army, as
they have ruined the pitching staffs
of opposing teams, the whole lot
should immediately be sent to the
Have you noticed that veterans
like Cicotte and Scott haven't any
regard for Jack Frost and his line of
br-r-r-r weather? If they can start
the season that way, wonder what
they will pull when things begin to
A -warm up a bit?
In the line-up for the past week's
work by the 'Cubs' there is one thing
a bit displeasing five errors. The
North Side crew stand second-worst,
Cincinnati having pulled six slips.
But give Weeghman's boys time to
get actually set together and then
watch that column of figures drop.
The Cubs were first in number of
hits. The Sox were tied for high hon
ors in the hit column, Boston getting
the same number, 29. Here's how the
two teams Vent along:

fame is in again this year. He mere
ly' continued his run of last season
Sunday and made the St. Louis
Browns look siclc. No runs and five
hits" was all he allowed. '
Buck Weaver is liable to make
plenty of errors this season if he
keeps going after the sort of chances
he went after Sunday. On three hits
that looked sure safeties he pulled
down the ball in spectacular manner.
Twice his ,man was nailed at first.
The third time he had to heave the
pill on the run and threw it past the
first baseman. When a man plays
for every ball that comes within a
hundred yards of him he is likely to
miss a lot of them. The sort he will
usually miss on are the brand that
a good many shortstops wouldn't
even go after. If Weaver breaks into
the error column often it will be be
cause he is 'aftei' everything that
comes anywhere near his territory
and a lot of that doesn't come near
him. We can afford to overlook the
error column of a man that plays
that brand of balL Go to it. Buck'
