CHICAGO, May 20. Carl Mays
checked Chicago s winning streak to
day, Boston defeating the locals 2
to 1. Jim Scott waa unable to hold
the world's champions who scored
one run In the first Inning on Barry's
single and Hoblltzell's triple and then
added the winning run In th next In
ning on B. Scott's triple and
single ky Mays. Th victory for Bos
ton today may cause the world's
champions to play without the services
of their manager, because of a colli.
ion at second base between Manager
Barry and Rlsberg In the Initial In
ning. It was said that Barry's knee
was badly hurt. Rlsberg also was
compelled to leave the game.
Thomas was ordered out of the
game by Umpire Nallln because he
argued with th arbiter whan Felsch
was passed 4e first. It looked as if
Maya had attempted th "bean ball."

IN GAME OF GOLF
CHICAGO, May 10. Stymies In
golf play are abolished by a revolu
tionary rule promulgated by th
Western Golf association today for
play In th western amateur cham
pionship, to beheld at the Midlothian
Country club, Chicago, July 8 to 14.
The new rule, which does away, so far
as three-fourths of the united State
and all of Canada are concerned, with
on of th most discussed penalties of
golf, also eliminates to a large ex
tent the both of lifting balls on th
putting greens in medal play.
The new rule upsets one on th
cardinal rules of the anolent Scottish
game by providing that the hall near
est the hole shall be played first when
both balls are on the putting green.
Heretofore th ball farthest from the
hole had to be played first In match
play where the contest Is hole by hole,
the old rule brought about a stymie
when the ball nearest the hole was In
the direct line of play of th ball
farthest from the cup. In medal play
the old rule demanded that the hall
nearest the hole be played or lifted
until the one farthest from the hoi
had been played, If the first player de
sired, as he would suffer a penalty of
one stroke If his ball hit the ball of
his fellow competitor.

COBB SAYS BASERUNNING IS FAR :
MORE IMPORTANT THAN BATTING
Base running more Important than
batting? Bunk you say? But that's
Just th claim made by Ty Cobb, the
greatest bat tar who vr lived, In his
artli le in the June Baseball Maguslu.
1 am strong for the stolen base be
raus I believe It Is possible to do
more damag to th opposing team's
defense by daring baa running than
by hutting or llnldlug or anything
else. When you ar making a lot of
hits you may discourage tha opposi
tion. But at th same time thny rea
son that the players are not so much
to blame. It Is really the pitcher
who is getting his. Therefor team
play and defensive play, so far as
the club la concerned, are not Im
paired In the least by the fusllnde of
hits which may win the gam and
drive the pitcher from the box. Th
same applies to fielding. If a mis-
play Is made It Is the fault of some
one player. It doesn't affect the other
players and It doesn't even affect the
man who made It very much. For he
reasons, "I missed that one all right
but when the next one comes thta way
I will atop It or break a leg."
All these things ar Important. But
no on of them, not even a horn run
with th bases crammed, can quit
demoralise an Infield and get th de
fense up In the air as clever base
running can do.
Such base running strikes fleep at
the foundation of the defense. It
destroys confidence and when con
fidence la gon everything Is gone.
Whe'n a fast runner gets to first base
and then starts running wild and r'
away with It, he completely demoral
ises th infield and gets the pitcher
and catcher up in th air as well. In
finldera ret to throwing th ball
around, missing plays, making errors
and looking like a lot of boohs. They

become completely rattled and when
a ball player la rattled he la don for
th time being. 11 might just a
well take off his uniform and g to
th club house.
It Is the element of th unexpected
which makes successful has running
so valuable. The hattar at th plat
U always likely te ansae a kit. It.
he does It Is no surprise to anyone.
So I an Inflolder likely to make an
error. Those things are all a part of
th gam. But th good baa run
ner who doesn't follow any set nil
creates opportunities for ' himself
which ar unexpected. For when he
la on th paths no on knows what
he Is going to do next and th very
uncertainty make It Impossible for
tha in 0 elders to do their best work.
A stolen bass Is looked upon by .oo
many manager as a risky hazard.
They are Inclined to follow th ma. ,
chine srhedul f working for pass
es, sacrificing and that sort of thing. '
All this is Important, nut If t ware
a manager I would try to develop th
unexeperted attack rather than follow
th routine form. If a thing H ns
experted It la Immensely valuable en
that very account The defease eaa't
be prepared. They ean't have any
est plan. Thy ar swept off their
feet. And the attacx wins pecans .
of Its suddenness and Its variation
from th usual schedule. '
