The mere fact that they have
dropped two straight is no reason for (5
getting the hammers out and apply
ing them to the White Sox. It is the
first time thjs season the Rowlands
have be.en defeated twice in succes
sion, but it won't be the last, for the
American league is full of tough hur
dles for any club. And Cleveland,
with its pitching staff in its present
form, is as big an obstacle as could
be imagined.
Without being accused of carping
criticism, however, it can be said
that the South Siders are not playing
the game their respective records
should lead one to expect The hit
ting is woefully weak in number of
swats registered, and even worse
when the hits are considered for their
productive value at the plate. In
three games against Cleveland the
locals have bagged 14 safeties and
scored two runs. The marvel is that
they have been able to glean even
one game from the Indians.
Some' of the thinking has not been
up to big league standard, especially
on attack. An example:
Cleveland rattled home .two runs
in the first inning. In our half Jack
son was on first and Liebold on third,
with two out. Felsch was at bat with
three balls called and one strike.
Jackson attempted to steal on the
next pitch and was out standing up,
Felsch failing to hit the ball.
The idea, of course, was to have Jj
men on second and third- to be in
scorine distance on a single. It was
no attempted double steal, for Nemo
didn't move off third and Jackson ran
straight t death. But if Jackson had
stood at first, Felsch could have al
lowed the pitch to pass, the count
-would then have been three and two
