Tbe failure . of the Cincinnati barters to "bear down" bard enough at times, coupled with some care less ball playing, haa helped Uncle Wilbert Robinson to breeze along. The Robins have five pitchers that came through the first half of the race with averages above tbe MO mark. W'tth Burleigh Grimes, Rube Marquard, Jeff Pfetfer and Al Ma maux as a nucleus they are clock ing games. Grimes is the real leader of tbe National league burl ers with an average better than .00.

Eddie CIcotte's pitching and the tact that the game was played in one hour and twenty one minutes were about the only features that stood out in yester day's 3 to 0 White Sox victory over the Philadelphiia Athletics. The afternoon was hot and sultry and the audience did not display tbe usual pep and ginger. At that it was a White Sox victory and a White Sox win over the lowly A's counts as much in the club "stand ing as a victory over any other club in the circuit barring, of coarse, the leading Indians, and tbe runner-up Yankees. Cicotte pitched a remarkable game. He held tbe Mack kids to three hits and walked only one.
