INDIANS TANGLE WITH TOLEDO OUTFIT IN WINDUP SERIES OF THE PRESENT HOME STANK
TRIBESMEN GO
AFTER ROGER’S
CACKLING HENS
/
Rain Sunday Only Serves to
Increase Aggressiveness
of Indians.
FIVE-GAME SERIES OPENS
/
“Take It out on the Hens.” advised a
fan yesterday as lie turned away from
■Washington park when the no-game
■ign finally was hung out and all chance
of witnessing the Tribe continue i+s win
ning streak against the Columbus Sen
ators in the scheduled Sunday twin bill
had gone glimmering due to rain.
Therefore. take-lt-out-on-the-Hens was
the slogan today when the Indians lined
up to open a five-game series with “Rav

By defeating the Senators Saturday. 3
to 2, when Charlie 'Whitehouse turned
back Clymer's outfit, the Indiana made
it eight straight victories and, robbed
of the opportunity of getting a last
double crack at the slipping Senators on
Sunday, the Hoosiers were all pepped up
today to begin hammering away on the
other Ohio A. A. representative.
ROGGE’S TIRX
OX THE HOOD.
Clint Rogge was slated for mound>
duty and he promised to send his fast
curve ball right on through when the
Toledoltes showed at the plate.
The Hens were in a bad mood anyway,
due to a few beatings they suffered at
Louisville and if they did not display a
quick comeback the Indians were -ex
pected to hang up their ninth “con
secutive.” \
Disappointment prevailed through
baseball Indianapolis yesterday. when
rain spoiled the big card at Washing
ton park and Owner Smith received an
other blow in the region of his bank .
roll. . , v
A crowd numbering -rround the 10,000
mark surely would have turned out be
cause the entire city has caught the
Spirit of the Tribe comeback. It looked
as if it was going to be the banner base
ball Sunday of the season here before the
all-day drlzzte broke up the party.
Owner &nith has suffered heavily
through rain and player desertions, and
he has had so much bad luck In
bunches that many fans are now pre
dicting that the sllfer lining certainly
is due to show In the way of an ex
tended Tribe march up the A. A. stand
ing.
Charlie .Wbltebonse burled an excel
lent brand of ball Saturday when be
•lid not allow a hit until the seventh
inning, and the game was so brilliantly
played that the whole town was talking
and racin' to turn out Rnmlay.
After completing the Toledo series
Thursday, the Indians will depart on
the longest road trip of the year, not
letnrning tor little more than a month.
Therefore, week-day attendance Is ex
nected to pick up during the remaining
few days the Ilocslers are at Washing
ton park, because If ever a club deserted
support the Indians deserve it now.

claim to the 18-year-old Independent

ready to bump off any clubs that think
they are “spoofing.” Teams desiring to

“Grindy” Bell, with a complaint that the
Indianapolis Reserves are getting a lit
tle mite too boastful and a request that
he be permitted to send his Merits after

not the Tigers, Rupps, Elders or any
other clubs that are rated high. For

HOW IT HAPPENED SATURDAY.
Marmons 14, Parry 2; Premier 1, Mid
west 0. Therefore, it s up to next Sat
urday to tell the story in the Motor
loop. It will bring the tied Marmons
and Premiers together on Brookside
diamond No. 3 and if a merry little bat
tle isn’t staged it will bo because nine
men on one of the two clubs falls down
and “croppies” before the game.
’ The Premiers defeated the Marmons
after a hot battle In the first round.
Several fans sai#it was because Pitcher
Wernke was not given the besc of sup
port. Well, the Marmon stone-wall de
fense has been plastered up a bit since
that time. You’ll have to figure the rest
of the problem yourselves.
Barnhart's* double In the eighth
brought the Premiers their win over
the Midjvest after Radman and Noffke
liad put on a peach of a pitchers' battle.
The Marmons had it on the Parry
crowd all the way.
G(~ & J. Tires had a rather hard time
the Wbeeier-Schebler nine with
an 11 to D blow.
Sherman threw curves at the Board
of Trade team for ten innings and they
found him only threee times. The Rob
bins won, 4 to. 8.
The American club made the Indiana
Bells hustle to grab an 8 to 7 win on
the home stretch.
Bowman had the Kahn Tailors just
about where ho liked to see 'em all
the time and the Prest-O-Lites won, 11
to 3.
Htbben-Hollweg felt the loss of Benny
Flagler when the Bemls Bags smacked
It on 'em. The damages were 4 to 3.

6 1. 6-4, in the other half of the singles
and tlie Holden-Dunlap combination took
.the doubles battle from Capt. Jack Mc-
Kay and Fred Appel by scores of 614,
! 6 2.
Hennessey romped through the first
five games of his opening set with Dtm
lap in fine style, but the Cincinnati star
finally started going big and tied the
count at five all Things looked bad
for the Indianapolis pride at this point.
’ but he opened up with hlB old speed
shots and took the set, 8 6.
Dunlap had all the tietter of things in
the se.-ond set and won easily, hut didn't
have the stuff to stick with neunessey
in the deciding tilt.
Bastian played a brilliant game at
times against Holden, but the latter was
more COniistSOt, playing a steady game
! with accuracy and judgment on all shots
and held the advantage practically all
; th- way.
Holden's work showed up to perfec
| tlon again In the doubles and he waa
; the hie factor In the defeat of the local
I combination.

tourney will bo played on the Hawthorn
courts next Saturday with Cleveland as
the visiting club.

f G REE N CAST LB, Ind., June 21.—Stu
dents and alnmnl of DePauw are elated
over the plans for anew athletic field for
the Tiger sport teams.

CUBS CREEP UP
IN MAJOR RACE.
Mitchell’s Team Aided by Re
turn of Vaughn.
NEW YORK, June 21. —After a "ktona
period of insurrections, revolutions and
assorted disorders, the major leagues
are approaching normal conditions as
the eight “big time” clubs pull up at
the one-third mark.
Last week was the most stable of
the season. The return of big Jim
Vaughn to tho Cubs caused the only
chhnge in the front lines.
Helped by the big southpaw, the
1 Bruins pushed the Cardinals out of third
place.
The American league remained sta
tionary with the Cleveland Indians, the
Yanks, the White Sox and the Red Sox
among the select folks and the steerage
passengers of the National league stayed
out.
The race seems to *be a duel
Cleveland and the Yanks in the Amer
ican, but any club in the National league
has a chance to jump into a winning
streak and climb to the tfip.
The leading Reds and the trailing
Phils are separated by only 173 points,
while in the American league the Cleve
land Indians have a lead of 379 over the
cellar holding Athletics.
Both leagues are using the stick with
good effect, but the epidemic of slugging
which marked the early season has been
stopped.
