May 1936 NL Recap

Through June 2, 1936, here is where things stand in the National League:

Giants Are Still Leaders of the Pack But Bucs Are On the Rise.

 

New York Giants

 The New York Giants cool off but are still ahead of the pack, going 14 -15 from May 1 through June 2nd.  Pittsburgh leapfrogs Chicago, thanks to an 18-13 run and sub-.500 ball by the Cubs.

What happened to the Cards? In the Cellar (with the Bees) after going 11-20 in this period.

Pitching is king in the NL and Brooklyn’s Van Mungo is King of The Ks ahead of the rest of the pack.  Hubbell and Schumacher are among the top NL aces and the reasons why NYG is still in first.

Chicago’s Billy Herman is hitting over .400.

Here are the standings and the stats:
