TO FIGHT ANY ? ? ? ? ? > NEW YORK, May 31-Chicago's upward climb to first place in the National league after hovering around last'^OBition in the early weeks of the senson, is the outstanding feature of 'the major league pennant race to date. The Cuba won their eighth straight �^me yesterday. Cleveland still retains the lead in the American league, despite a falling off from the fast pace of tile prenous week. New York Americans, which won seven out of eight* last week, mainly through Babe Ruth's teiTitic batting, have advanced to third place, behind Boston. 'Wash-ini;ton went into fourth place yesterday by winning its sixth ganje in a rdw, while Chicago Americans was losing to Cleveland. The steady pitching of Alexander, who has won 10 straight games, and Vailghu, with six straight victories ptoraises to aid the Chicago Nationals in warding off attacks on its leadership. Cincinnati was the only otbrn-National league team able to maintain better than a five hundred pace last �week, winning four out of seven. The world's champions batted hard, but their pitchers were ineffective in many contests. Although Brooklyn. Boston and St. Louis improved, at the hat, the teams failed to give field support to their pitchers. New York appears unabler to make an upward start. While Uie Cleveland Americans were busy shifting pitchers toward the end of the week in the hope of victory, the New York Yankees advanced to within striking distance by ifour straight victories over Boston, which previously had won six con-eecntive games. Babe Ruth, of the Yankees, made six home runs during the week, bringing his season's total to 11'. The Yankees had little difficulty in hitting the Red Sox pitchers, while the New York staff appeared in excellent condition. The opposition averaged more than six runs a game against Chicago, which seems to be losing its grip on the first division. The AVhite Sox suffered the first de-Xeat to Cleveland, who had won eight straight from the beginning of thtj season. Washington wasted few hits and gave able support to its pitchers. St. Louis, whose players are in the midst of a hatting slump, lost its seventh consecutive game yesterdaj'. Philadelphia's pitchers have been pounded hard and they are but a step ahead of Detroit, which is making a strenous effort to rise from french champ 'WINS PARIS.
