out of place as the Athletics would be in the on the fourth Of It has been so lodg since the Tigers counted as a tail end team that fans all over the country begin to wonder what is wrong it1 Jennings men slip out first For once the whole blame cannot be put the pitching Erickson is hurling great ball and so Is entirely recovered from his ill is ready to take his regular turn and his showing against the Xankees Friday proved that he going to be a tough pitcher to Qoland is still suffering from a sore Sun day Bsrnie remarked that his arm giving him toore trouble this spring than any previous time in his and that only warm weather would tring it Bill James has been having tough luck with several of the games he has Saturday lie was going along so nicely that Jennings had no one properly warmed up when the big blow came off in the seventh If Bill could get by with two or three consecutive wins theluck might have a good effect on But he figures he is an uhlucky pitcher and a bad inning is likely to upset No Concerted Batting But the real for the Tigers In eighth position it the lack of con certed hitting by other members the And a lot of have been spoiled by unexpected boots in the Last week the Tigers of the seven games They scored nine runs in five in two of the while in the remainder they could not drive more than three across the How poorly the Detroit team is

pared with Oacar in keeping a club There is not a manager in the lea gue who does not fear the The I season is young and Jennings I inen will canso n lot of trouble before I the gong rings in But what I is needed now is about two months steadier fielding and some j real hitting when runners are on the The week has proven that Boston is not invincible and that the White Sox are hot out of The loss
