Along with Tyler and James, Rudolph has been carrying the pitching burden of the Boston Braves in their
mad rush for the National League pennant. The trio has won 59 games and lost 28. Of these Rudolph has captured,
including yesterday's game, 21 affairs and has been credi cd with 11 defeats, most of which were sustained during
the early stages of the race, when the Braves were adorn ng the bottom of the ladder. There are only three p.tchers
in the National League who have a better pitching average than Rudolph; his teammate, James, who is leading, and
Doak, of St. Louis, and Tesreau, of the Giants. At present Mathewson and Rudolph are tied. The pitching prowess
of Dick Rudolph was shown yesterday, when he won out despite the seven errors made behind him.

In the season of 1313 Walter Johnson
was credited with the Iocs of five gamei.
With nearly another month to go beforu
tho 1911 campaign closes, the hpeed king
has dropped 17 contests. Has Johnson
lost hts speed? Has he lost the an of
putting the Jump on tho ball? Tho play.
er say not. What then Is the matter?
Control and a deadly fear of killing
Any mnn with Johnson's control can
prevent hitting a batsman If he chooses.
I Johnson does choose, and w hat Is more
to the point, the batters know it. it was
' during the early stages of the present
' roco that the tlrst stories of Johnson's
foar of hitting batters were published.
These articles, printed b practically
every newspaper in the country, contained
the statement of tho Washington hurlr
that he would quit baseball forever lr lie
should kill a man with a pitched ball.
This, naturally, pave tho batters con.
Mdenco, for there la 110 doubt that John'
, bon's effectiveness was due. to n. large
' extent, to the fact that the nouiM
hitiero pulled away from the plate, ami
I In so dolus Ion their toe hold, aa It were.
! Now tue majority of batters in the
American league know that Jolmsoti is
not g"lng to attempt to ue the "bean
ball" on them. and. furthermore, that his
control U so wonderful that tho chances
1 for jelng hit are small.
That this fear of being hit is .1 matter
' which affects batters to a very large ex,
tent is shown time and again, especially
in the early spring Let a manager send
, In a youngster who has a fair amount of
sp-ed. but who possesses the usual wild
nejs of the untrained performer. A
major league club will be held to 11 mini
mum number of hits by such a pitcher.
It is for this same reason that many of
the pitchers In both the American and
National leagues use thti "bean-ball."
They want to intimidate the batters and
often they do.
Clark GrltnUi lias Instructed his pitcher?,
so it ls said, to uend one or more balls
straight for Frank Bakers htad every
time he goes to the bat And they aie
said to do It, with the exception of John
