LIMITED M�kert Montreal WHEN TY'S BAITING E II was Old Jim Scott Who Turn-The Trick In the Mth UNCERTAINTY IS THE SPICE T MAKES BASEBALL A G Take This Season's Shewing of Sonic Cubs, For Instance They're Not Doing What Was Expected of T hem When Ty Cobb's great run of base hits in consecutive games came to a close-which it did on Friday, at tor he had made one or more hits in 35 successive contests-the finish was as expected. Of nil the pitchers that lie faced while making his record, tlie one who stopped him was, with very few exceptions, the one who had least license to do the checking. Jim I Scott, of Chicago, once great, but now apparently all through, was the pitcher. Scott worked but one round, the eighth, but that was enough to do tho damage. Ty having liis last chance in this inning. When he laced Scott he opposed a man who had announced, on that very day, his intention of going into the army, because he can no longer pitch. Ho was stopped by a slingcr who has done almost no work this year. Rowland being so fearful of him that in ten preceding contests with Detroit he had not even allowed Jim to pitch an Inning as relief. Cobb's hope was to beat his world mark of mil, when he. set a major league record that is likely to stand for all time, going 40 gamvs in a row. That feat, like the present one, started early in tho season, Cobb, getting into his stride on May 15, against Joe Wood, and continuing until July 2, when Ed Walsh stopped hint. Ho hit just a Httlo better, in the averages, in that drive, getting a .453 mark, as against an unofficial ,449 figure that is credited to him in this season's spring. Ono good feature of Cobb's run was that 24 of the 35 games were played on the road, removing any chance of charges of favoritism in the Bcorlng. There were only two games ia which ho was saved through any special break in baseball luck. Ono was at Chicago, where Risberg just missed boating the runner with his throw on a high slow bounder. The other wan in Detroit fast week, a bunt, tho last time up, starting to go foul and then rolling onto fair ground. In tho Friday game Ty had just one chance. Opposing Fabor, who started the game, ho slammed n line drive toward right, the first time up. It went straight at Eddie Collins, and a double play resulted. He hit a long Baseball is popular fo;- a garni many, reasons. It is a sport, without a peer, for one thing, and it stands in a class, by itself, because ;;o other sport with the possible exception of the English gamo of cricket is anything like it. It is a sport for both players and fans; it is full of thrills and above all is wholly red blooded. But one of the very biggest factors which contributes to the popularity of baseball is the uncertainty of the game. Every game of ball ritaf. is playod bristles with uncertainties. Kvory season brings forth surprises, because players and teams so often do the unexpected thing. The fan can never be dead sure of anything in baseball, and the same applies to tho player, the manager or the team. Tho timely hit, the untimely error, the unexpected mental lapse of a player, the ninth Inning rally and a hundred and one other things which happen on the diamond mark the uncertainty of baseball and put spice and variety into the game. The present season has been a season of many thrills and many upsets to date. And if one stops to consider the original source of unusual interest in baseball this year-a year of war-it can all bo traced to the freakish, uncertain nature of the king of pastimes. Take a slant at the standings of (he clubs in the two big leagues, and you will find the pennant races somewhat jumbled up when compared to the "advance dope" you had when the season opened. Braves Jolt Dope The Giants, true to predictions, are proving a big factor in the National league this year. But they are not walking off with the pennant by a long shot, and they will not. be able to breeze through to a championship as many predicted. Look at the heroes of 1914-the Boston Braves. Last season they figured strongly in the race for the pennant, and they wore touted as the real stumbling block in tho path of the Giants. But the Braves aro away down there wallowing around in the second division. The champion Dodgers were counted on for a better showing than they have made, and tho Cubs and Cardinals have furnished big surprises by giv- ing the foremost pennant contenders a tough argument. A second glance, at the Braves recalls the fact that they haco furnished two big surprises in three years. In the American league the two Sox teams are living up to pro-season predictions. But the rest of the entrants have succeeded In knocking tho props from under the dope pot that was put on to boil as the curtain went up. The unexpected showing of both seasoned and rookie pitchers; the batting feats of unheralded sluggers and the dismal work of others who were expected to shine all go to Bhnw just, how little the baseball fan can depend on the grand old dope as it is hashed up on paper. Yeh, Stove, tho old gamo is popular for n good many reasons, but no one predicted just, what would happen this year, and no one will ever bo able to do so. foul to Jackson second time, and an easy grounder to Eddie Collins in the sixth. Coming up to face Scott in tho eighth, Cobb made an effort to save himself, as he has done before, by bunting. The ball went foul. Then he had a foul strike, and finally hit a grounder almost straight at Weaver for the third out. This stopping of his streak isn't likely to affect Ty. He'll get going again. In fact, he hasn't stopped yet, as his batting average shows. And ho Btill has his mark of 40 games. This once was beaten by Jack Ness, former Tiger, hut that mark merely goes for tho minors. Our friends, the commissioners, seem to be real peeved about the signboard at Henderson Park lake, and intimate that the continual joshing is getting monotonous. So is trying to watch regatta races from the pavilion. Anyway, we're not responsible for ingrowing dispositions. It was a hard old game to lose, but thank goodness wo did lose to Curniangny in the mid-week struggle. All the boneheads weren't pulled on the diamond that day. The Carmangay boys are a snappy-lot of players and their exhibition hero by no means did them credit. They played sandlot ball, but so did tho homebrews. The fans got their eyes full for onco. "Us and Agnes" was on deck. Siler, the Champion pitcher, put over a homo run on his friends last Saturday. Stavely also has a number of outside players and aro making a great showing. Tabor has uncovered" from somewhere the most sensational shortstop of the Medicine Hat stampede. His name is Green and ho is anything but that. His playing at tho Hat set tho tourney on fire.
