1930 £AMM BAIL* JWBtfe, Pathtfrf, Texas PAGfi NINfc BE PAIN IN NECK TO CARDINALS CHICAGO TAKES THIRD IN RO)V FROM THE PHILLIES „.,. BY Sib F^DER, Associated. Press Sports Writer. '.Any' way you look at H, the bricking Hues from Pittsburgh njjicj llio,champion Cubs of Chicago seem to be the boys to supply whatever headaches culm- to Mr. Franklc Frisch ami his S(. Louis CJiirdhmls in the cm-rent National league race. The Pirates drubbed the Dodgers G-3 yeslerday for a clean sweep in their four-game series, and the Clips took their third in a row from the Phillies, 4-3, in a major leaguq prpgram thai found the weatherman getting most of the laughs by raining out half of the scheduled bill in each loop. Their victories, along with the surprise walkout of Van Lingle M\mgo, the Dodgers' number one sp'eedball pitcher, from the Brook- lyns temporary camp in Pittsburgh, featured the shortened program, in which. Cleveland's 10.-2 triumph over Ihc Senators, and the Boston Red SoX 4-3 win over Detroit, furnished the only other competition. Although Mungo left the Dodgers without giving a reason, the talk popped up again that he isn't keen about the support of his teammates this year, and that he's still down 'in;the mouth over the failure of recent trade winds which might have blown him across the river to the Giants. And the Giants could use him most handily, for a pitching collapse, particularly on the part of Clydell Castleman, and, of late. Harry Gumbert, has been largely responsible for the New Yorkers' skid. Although they were rained out at Cincinnati yesterday, they slid from a second place tie all the way down to fourth place in the upward rush of the Pirates and Cubs. . «.
