THE REDS CONTINUE TO LOSE,
BUT MATTY IS PROVING THAT
HE HAS MANAGERIAL ABILITY
i i i .
Famous Hurler Already Has Made Minor Changes
Which Probably Will Bring Results and
Is Popular-With Players
THE Reds, under Christy Mathowson, have lost 16 out of 18 games, but It re
quired only one game for the famous hurlcr to convlnco local fans that ho has
made great headway, despite the fact that figures would seem to disprove this
statement. Tho Iteds nro trying as hard as they know how and,. naturally, want
to win, but vlctorlea for the remainder of tho season Is tho last thing Mathew
on Is thinking about. Ho Is preparing for tho future, and already tyis dono
several things that are likely to bear fruit
As a pitcher Matty always was observlrfg, and ho studied tho style of play
.nd Individuals of every team In the league. That Is one of the main reasons
why he developed Into a, wonderful pitcher and tho only reason why ho con
tinued to win nfter ho had lost most of his "stuff." Judging by ficveral llftlo
thlngB that occurred yesterday, Matty watched tho Reds more closely than all
other teams this Benson.
On the surface the Keds were the same old team, going along In tho eamo
old way, but, in truth, It Is a different team for seveinl reasons. The mnln feature
about Matty's brief career as a manager It that ho has shown that ho lion Ideas of
his own, which he Intends to carry out In a slow, dcllbciato manner, regardless
of tho result of the games of tho present season.
When Ilerzog had the Iteds he changed pitchers so often that a great staff
Was ruined becauso tho men lost conlldonco In themselves. They wero pulled
from the mound whenever a run or two was tallied, and this method of handling
tho pitchers caused the other players to Iofo confidence in Ilerr.og's judgment,
Thoso who tried to argue tho point with the "firebrand" wero promptly "called,"
and as a result tho Marylander became vtry unpopular with hlb men.
Matty Handles Pitchers Well
MATTY know this, and his first move was to win tho confidence and respect
of his players, and to bring the pitchers back to their natural stride. Instead
of pulling a pitcher out of the game oh soon as ho Is scored upon and constantly
cwitchtng the team about In ordf to Invert pinch hitters, Matty has allowed his
pitchers to go tho full route In nlmost all of tho 18 gamen the Keds have played
Blnco ho has been at the holm. As a result, tho players arc stiong for Matty,
and are pulling for him, whereas they wero against Hcrzog.
Whcro Ileriog paid llttlo attention to minor details, Matty has proved that ho
never overlooks a thing. Yesterday ho picked Elmer Knotzor to face tho Phillies,
nnd the- fans and Moran's men were tun prised to learn that ho had discarded tho
upltball. For sovon years Knotzor has been a npltba.ll pitcher, but Matty has
impressed upon him that tho moist delivery ruined control, which Is a pitcher's
Knotzor did not bellevo that ho could get along without tho splttor, and still
uses it In a pinch ocrnslonally, but nfter his curve ball has returned ho probably
Will discard tho spltball forever. Matty bays Knotzer has too good a curve ball
to bother with a splttor and that ho will bo n different pitcher next season.
Anothor odd move that Matty has made whlrh may prove of great value was
to chango "Greasy" Ncalc, his outfielder, Into a right-handed batter when a south
paw Is on tho mound. Many of the fnns probably did not know that yesterday
was the first tlmo slnco Nealo was a schoolboy that he has baited from tho right
side of tho plate, but In the futuio ho will hit from the starboard side whenever
ft southpaw opposes tho Reds.
Christie Never Misses a Point
MATTY lias seen enough to convince him that Nealo Is helpless against south
paws, nnd as he does not bellevo In switching his llnc-up over' other day, and
also realizes that southpaw pitchers aro becoming moro common every day, ho
decided to change Nealo to that tho team could have his services cvory duy.
Ncale looked very good on the right sldo of the plato yesterday, and is certain to
Numerous other little changes were noticeable In tho Cincinnati players, such
as a chango of position at the plate and a different defensive shaft with runners on
the bases. These changes are so slight that they are hardly noticeable, but they
prove conclusively that Matty's team In tho future will at least bo nearly perfect
details and games will not be lost through lack of system.
JtEvery player on tho Cincinnati payroll
iPialf chance to demonstrate his ability. By
his men sized up properly, and will then start to strengthen tho weak points.
Great players often fall to make good In a managerial position because they cannot
direct or overlook details, but Matty appears to have started on tho right track.
If ho can retain the respect of his players and can put Into operation a systom
his great brain probably has worked out, Cincinnati may at last havo tho man
ager who can lead tho Reds out of tho wlldorncss.
Phillies Continue to Pile Up Victories
EPPA RTXEY'S effcctlvo pitching and fast, Intelligent ball In nil departments
enabled tho Phillies to win tho first gumo with Matty's clan. Tho result really
waa never In doubt after tho first Inning, when the Phils tallied twice before
' Knetzer had gotten thoroughly warmed up. With a two-run lead. Rlxoy waa In
vincible, and the Reds's chances to score wero few and far between.
Singles by Paskort and Uyrno and Whltted'H doublo gave the Phillies the
two runs in the opening Inning, while Cravath's terrific triple, which bounced off
the bleacher wall and rebounded almost to second base, accounted for tho third
tally. Tho last two runs wero duo to two wild throws, ono to first base by
Emmera and the other to third by Knetzer,
Defensively tho Phils outplayed tho Reds, tho only mlscuo of the gamo by
tho champions being an oxcusablo fumble of a bunt by Rlxey, while Matty's
team also was outclassed no far as Judgment on tho bases and In mixing tho
attack were concerned. Tho Cincinnati miscues which gave the 1'hlls their last
two runs wero due to the fact that tho squecza play and bunting gnmo of tho
champions rattled tho Red Infield.
j Doublc-IIeadera Will Handicap Drool lyn
IS BOTH Boston and Brooklyn were
to get In tho seven-lnnlng victory,
each. The actual gain of half a game does not mean so much to the Phillies as
the postponement of tho Brooklyn and Boston games, as It will be necessary
for both of the leading teams to play another double-header.
Continual postponements are likely to prove a severe handicap to tho Brooklyn
pitching staff, and the expected cracking of Robinson's hurling quintet may re
ulPfrom tho long list of twin bills the Robins will bo compelled to pluy later
In tho season. Tho double-headers apparently have llttlo effect on tho Braves, as
Btalllngs is better equipped with pitching material, In number, than Brooklyn.
John McQraw intimates that he will not renew his contract to manage tho
Giants. Thlfl announcement, published In a New York evening paper, created
quite a stir, as tho Gotharaltes are Just awakening to the fact that McC-raw is
going to turn the club oyer to another. McGraw will not get out of the game,
however, as It ia a 10 to 1 shot that he will be allowed to purchase an Interest
I n the club. Tho fact that McQraw would try to buy tho Giants was published
in these columns about two months ago.
Yountr Emmer, the 13-year-old shortstop of the Reds, is a wonderful fielder,
but the impression is general that he will never hit well enough to hold his
position. Emmor also proved yesterday that he la a quick thinker by urging
louden to permit Luderus's fly to fall safe, so that Whltted, a much faster base
runner, could be forced at second.
When the Western teams took their first swing through the East, Bill
KlHefer had Just returned to the game
believing that the Phllly star could not
bases, but Klllefer Is throwing as well
feels certain that ho will not be troubled
The American league race tightened up again yesterday, when the Red Box
once more defeated the White Sox, while Cleveland won from New York. Tho
White Sox are finding the Red Sox a much tougher proposition than the crippled
'Yankees and tail-end Mackmon.
Eppa Rixey looks better every day. The lanky southpaw has the confidence
he needed and may prove an unpleasant surprise to Brooklyn and Boston in the
Jlnal series of the season.
Age seems to have no ill effects upon Eddie Plank. Yesterday the veteran Just
.missed annexing a no-hit verdict, holding Washington hitless for eight Innings,
Foster's double in the ninth being the only safety made In the game. In Flank's
game of a few days ago, be held his opponents to two hits and scored a shutout.
