Johnson May Be Unable To Enter
Box Against Philadelphia
Or Boston.
PHILADELPHIA, 'juno 22-Stevo
' White, tho former Princeton University
i twlrlsr, picked up by Mannger Griffith
while the Natlonnls were In New York
last month nnd taken on tho Western
tour to pitch to the batters In practice,
has been released to Jcssu Burkctt's
Worcester club, of the ow England
I League. White wll lroport to his club
I Monday.
"When I took White." said Griffith
i today, "I was badly In need ,of pitchers.
I If he had shown ability to oust some
of the others from their positions, he
l would stay. However, I don't see where
I can use him, and so have found him
a place whero he should get plenty of
work and develop."
While Joe Boehling, tho Richmond
amateur hurler, may be sent to some
minor league berth, It Is more than
possible that Jack Ryan will be given
the task of whipping him Into shape for
I the big show. Boohllng Is as wild ns
a March wind, but ho has everything n
pitcher needs except control. Ryan's
efforts toward teaching Cashlon control
have been so well rewarded that Mana
ger Griffith believes he may succeed In
doing llkewlso with Boehling.
Walter Johnson, king of pitchers, may
not be strong enough to enter the box
for a week yet, and, with Boston and
Philadelphia visiting Washington next
week, the Nationals will bo forced to
combat them without their mound
mainstay. Johnson has lost twelve
pounds by his Illness, nnd will require
a long rest to regain his strength.
Barney Pelty, tho former Urownle,

Red Sox In Waslngton, Monday.
"Bob" Groom Holds
Champions Down
To But Two Runs
PHILADELPHIA, June 22.-Jumplng
Into a taxlcab In front of a hos.
pltal, where he had just had a drain
placed in his back, Groom rushed to
Shlbo Park yesterday and held the
mightiest sluggers of tho Athlotlcs In
the hollow of Ms hand, easily winning
his game by a score of S to 2. Such
an example of gameness has seldom
been seen In baseball,

a large abscess in his back, and

the Athletics oculd do nothing. For
five Innings the Athletics were hltless.
Three hits were made off Groom in the
la8t two frames, because, knowing ho
had his game In hand, the tall fellow
eased up a bit. He had left a sick
bed to awing tho Climbers up a notch
In the struggle for American League
Luck Featured Victory.
The Nationals won, but not wi.o:!'
through their own good work.' Groom's
support was wretched, and single
handed he disposed of batsmen when
his support wobbled In tho face of tho
pnemy. 'TIs true, the Nationals showed
some ability with the willow, but tho
pitching of the Athletic quartet was
the very worst Imaginable. It was no
particular glory In winning from the
Slackmen when they had such twlrlera
n the box.
However, this does not detract in tho
least from the good work of Hob
Groom. Ho never weakened at any
stage of tho game, and made monkeys
of such sluggers ns Eddlo Collins,
Frank Baker, "Stuffy" Mclnnls. Jack
Barry, and Ira Thomas. Indeed, had
his work not been first class, the score
might well have been oloscr, for the

The Athletics have a Ions home
series ahead of them which should
prove of much benefit to them In their
climb to tho top of the ladder. Barring
their one series of five games In four

Improves their chances, too. Is the

almost every team In tho league. Out

The Western clubs, headed by th'j
Naplanders, trek In upon the Florida

Such a lone string of games on their

are a fighting team and this home

"I want mv team to stay behind the

strain of holding on to first place In a
