Xan Maxie Schmeling Escape Sharkey’s Left Jab?

Who Pepper Him With
Short Jabs

Associated Press Sports Writer
Not since gorgeous Georges Car

behind the closed doors of his train
ing camp at Manhasset in 1921 has
a man of mystery trailed such a
string of doubts and surmises across
the heavyweight horizon as Max

| believe Max will win the title al
I though he is certain to be an under
t dog in the wagering. Yet no man
1 in fistic history, with the possible
v exception of Jim Jeffries or Luis
Jl Angel Firpo, ever came so far in
7 so short a time or won for himself
a a challenger's rating on so brief a
H display of prowess. He has fought

the slender Frenchman, first Eu

modern times, worked on Long

Wright Aids in Defeating
Former Pirate
Associated Press Sports Writer
A student of psychology might
well find material for research in
the mysterious something which
makes baseball players who have
been traded from one club to an
other do their best against their
former mates. This phenomenon has
been remarkably evident in this
season's games and all the more
noticeable because of numerous re
cent trades.
The New York Giants, now com
posed to a considerable extent of
former Cincinnati players, dispersed
one great feat after another as they
swept a three-game series with the
Reds. Lacking the perfect combin
ation of having an ex-New York
pitcher opposed to them, the Giants
didn’t do their best in this line as
they won the final game yesterday,
7 to 4. But Hughey Critz, known as
a light hitter before he came to
New York, upheld the tradition by
hitting a single and a home run
and driving in two runs.
Glenn Wright, whom the Pitts
burgh Pirates sent to Brooklyn in
exchange lor Jess Petty two seasons
ago, returned to action against his
old team yesterday and was instru
mental in giving the Robins a 6 to
5 victory. Wright helped to drive
Petty from the mound with a heavy
batting attack that gave Brooklyn
a good lead, then played the key
position in a fast and close double
play that ended the game when the
Pirates seemed sure to tie the score.
Roily Hemsiey, second victim of
the twin killing, and Jewel Ens and
Max Carey. Pittsburgh manager and
coach, put up such a violent pro
test on Umpire Ted McGrew's deci
sion. which deprived Hemsiey bf the
tying run, that the Ebbets Field
police took a hand and escorted the
arbiter off the field.
The Chicago Cubs got along very
well without two former Boston
ians, Hornsby and Bell, as they
wound up their series against the
Braves with a 1 to 7 victory. It was
the succession for the National
League champions. Hack Wilson's
17th home run was the best ol
Chicago's eleven hits. Philadelphia
had Homer No. 14 from the bat of
Chuck Klein to aid in a 1 to 4
triumph over the slumping St.
Louis Cardinals
Rally Wins
The St. Louis representative of
the American League, the Browms,
had better luck with a ninth inning
rally. Going into the ninth four
runs behind the Philadelphia
Athletics, they put on an uprising
that called Jack Quinn into action
as relief pitcher for the third suc
cessive day, scored five runs and
won the game. 6 to 5.
Detroit's Tigers started their scor
ing early to keep the Washington
Senators a game behind the Athlet
ics. They put over four runs off Sam
Jones in the second inning and won
by a 6 to 2 count. Cleveland, start
ing with nine runs in the first in
ning. scored early and late to beat
the humble Boston Red Sox 17 to7
The one-sided triumph left the
Indians only three games behind
Washington and improved their
lead by half a game over the New
York Yankees, who were stopped In
Chicago by a heavy rain after only
two innings had been played and
the score was tied at one-all.
Associated Press Sports Writer
He’s just a little fellow, this Joel
Hunt, no bigger than when he was
a phantom quarterback at Texas A
& M. a few years ago. but he still
packs a mighty wallop.
Joel unlimfcered his bat twice
yesterday, and the result was a 5
to 3 victory' for the Houston Buffs
over Dallas. In the third inning,
with two out and two on base. Hunt
caught one of George Murray’s fast
ones shoulder high and drove it on
a line over the center field screen.
Again, in the fifth, he slapped one
over the same spot, -and that proved
i sufficient to win the ball game. The
best he could do in two other at
tempts was a single and double.
Battering four hurlers for 13 hits,
including a quartet of doubles, the
Fort Worth Cats made a clean
sweep of their series with Waco,
10 to 8. Among those who tried their
hand at pitching for the Cubs was
Pete Wendt, crack Texas Aggie left
hander of the last two seasons.
Shreveport made it two out of
three from the San Antonio In
dians, 5 to 4. when Joe Huarte. sub
stitute second baseman, singled Me
Clanahan across with the winning
run after two were out in the ninth.
Huarte also had driven in a run in
the third. Oscar Tuero received
credit for the win after he had
rescued Morrell in the fourth.

San Antonio at Dallas, Waco at
