As the major league season draws near the final month the schedule calls for one important series after another, almost without interruption. So far there's been no real (decision as the Cardinals challenged the Giants and registered only & slight gain and the Yankees and Tigers came out all square. Still another "crucial" series opens today as the Giants and the Chicago Cubs meet with the National league lead again at stake. The league leaders have had a breathing spell since their struggle With St. Louis, trimming the Reds four times runing despite a few close calls, and winding up with a 3 to 0 victory yesterday.

The final tally was 19 to 5. • As against that slugging, the Giants presented the hurling of Hal Schumacher, who blanked the Reds with eight hits in a keen duel with Gene Scott to gain his 17th victory of the year and the 16th of his career over Cincinnati.

That was either his 17th, according to the traveling scribes with the Yanks, or his 18th with the bases full, according to Gehrig. A complete review of his more than 1,600 games will be needed to decide the issue but at any rate he beat Babe Ruth's lifetime mark of 16 homers with the corners crammed. Lou went on to hit another homer in the afterpiece but Johnny Murphy couldn't hold the lead and St. Louis won the game 14-3. ;..•'. . The Yankee split enabled Detroit to increase its lead to seven games as the Tigers trimmed the Red Sox twice 4-1 and 3-2 with Al Crowder pitching four-hit ball in the opener. Meanwhile.
