PAGE SIX BLYTHEVIL-LE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS M.OXPAY. MAY 5, 1917 White Sox Hold Lead in American Four Victories in : Row Bring Respect For Ted Lyons' Team By CO1INEMUS RYAN (Unilcil 1'rcss Spoils Writer) NEW YORK. May 5. — They laughed when the Chicago While Sox selllcd down lo play al being American League leader. Hut to- j day the Sox are I'-.- games in front ' of ^lic second-place Tigers and ridiiig a four-Maine winning streak, two from .the Yanks on Saturday and two from tin- Athletics on Sunday. Manager Ted Lyons and his crow, some of them very .-.canined veterans and some of them very excitable, rookies, have no special formula for winning. Lyons admits lie just calls for whal seems like a reasonable play In any given situation, and so Uir he's won 10 of 15 games, sometimes Hit: Sox win on pitching, like Thornlon Lee's seven-hit job Saturday or Orval Grove's four-hit 1 to 0 triumph over the A's in yesterday's second game. Other times ii's hitting, like the 10 to 3 job on the Yanks Saturday, or the 8 to 7 in st-game win over Philadelphia yesterday. Detroit. Cleveland, at Louis and Washington are olher While Sox victims, and the Red Sox haven't been met yet. In the 15 Barnes, op- ponenls have averaged 7-2-5 hits per game, and never have got move than 11 in a single conlest. Chicago's defense lias been good and at times spectacular, so Lyons' chief job is to coax some steady hitting out of his team. -Connie Mack "Pained" If he gels it. Ihe oilier teams In the le.igite will lose the last vestige of their grins. It was a pained Connie Mack who watched Jack Wai-' laesa, a former A, belt an eighth- i"iiin<r grand slam homer lo beat Philadelphia in-the first game yesterday. Luke Appllng and Murrell Jones hit other while Sox homers. In the nightcap, a walk, a stolen base and Bob Kennedy's single—one of three hits off .less Fiores—gave the Sox a mirsl-inning run and that was all grove needed. The. champion Red Sox, beginning to lly right, nftcr a mad slart, dumped the £t. Louis Browns twlee, 3 lo 2 and 8 lo 1. Bobby Doerr led the attack in the first game as his double led lo the first Boston run* and his Iwo-run homer won Boston got all \ts runs in the- first three innings of the I nightcap and rookie Tom Fine coasted home with a five-hit victory. Washington, uiiawed by Bob Feller's 23 straight scoreless Innings, went light to work on the Cleveland righthander when he galloped in as a relief pitcher in the seventh inning. Feller walked" two batters and then Buddy Lewis shot a hard single to center field. It went through George Mclkovich's legs and all three runners .scored. Feller, rattle^ by this rough handling, next served up a home run ball to' Stan Spencc and that made sure of n 0 lo 3 Senator victory— and Feller's second loss. Hal NewhoiLser of Detroit and Spud Chandler of New York battled to a 2 to 2 six-inning lie in a game stopped by rain. Eddie Lake homered for Detroit. Cards Defeat Hoslon !)-0 Biggest news in the National Lengue .was the St. Louis Cardinals' f> to 0 victory over the Boston Braves in the second game or a doubleheader, ending a nine-game losing streak for the world champions.
