STINGY JOE CHABEK !
WINS FROM TIGERS
Cockill Crew in the Game With
Barrels of Ginger;
Once more Joe Chabek, Harris
burg's veteran pitcher, was stingy
with his hits and Trenton was the
loser. Harrisburg chalked up a score
of 5 to 2. Zeke Wrigley's boys got |
lost in the steam fog when Chabek's I
speedy curves passed over the plate. I
It was the second time in a week
that Chabek let his opponents down
with three bingles. Those Chabek
pills were also good for stiff joints as
Trenton's sluggers performed all sorts
t f contortions in going after the ball.
After Trenton had tallied in the first,
there was nothing to the game but
Whalen was again the star for
Cockill's crowd. "Charley" Miller
continues in the game as a winning
factor, and McCarthy and Crist were
prominent in fast fielding.

A FISH STORY
There was a flsh
Who grew too fat;
He worried much
And grieved thereat;
To train and bant
He did not fail;
His flns and tall.
And yet, alas,
He had to live;
A single bite
He had to give.
He ate one fly.
Though strange It sounds
His weight at once
Increased two pounds.
—McLandburgh Wilson in the New
first place with Byrne, of Philadelphia,
among the National League hitters,
each having a record of .400.
Steve Evans continued to top the
Federal sluggers with .440.
No one in the American Association
has reached John Titus' .500 percent
age established before the Kansas City
veteran was laid out witlr an injury.
Next to Titus is Altizer, Minneapolis,
.409. O'Hara, of Toronto, tops the In
ternational League batters wtih .370.
