Following early shellackings, the Yale youth tried too hard wllh Hir result lhal he jot to aiming the ball and became too Inie. Certain members of thc Yankees fear that Gomez is Just another >itcher now, too. It Is for this reason that Johnny Murphy's return In a week will b.? more than welcome. Murphy lias been on the sidelines since he ruptured a blood vessel In his iroin in running to first base In Detroit on lhc club's last wcst- ;ni irip. Tlic Yankees are In front, but are not yet talking pennant, Tlic reason for this is that they were n precisely the snmc posi'lion a fear ago, only to drop out of first place on July 25, and find Ihem- ;clvcs begging for help in August They picked up a bit in September, when it was too late. 1-avv of Averages Favors New York Club Joe McCarthy hopes that the law of averages will permit htsi array to gel through thc season without another major injury.
