FOOLISH CHANCE AT BEST
Wasted Opportunities Count
Heaviest Against New York,
but Wood and Red Sox
Win on Merits.
John J. McGraw, manager of the
Giants. stakcd hls all on a play in thej
seventh inning of the game at the Polo |
Grounds yesterday, ln whlch tho Red j
Sox beat the Giants by a score of 3 to
1. It was n play that, in my opinion, !
was 11] advl.sed, even lf It had turned j
out to the advantage nf Nt*fV Ynr!<. as
the chance was far too desperate. wlth
the American League champions piay?

Wood was under a light nombardment.
Herzog had singlcd and scored from
flrst base on Flctchor's two bapger

He Bacrlflced Tesreau, who had
finally settled down by striking out
four of the last slx men to face hlm,
and sent Harry McCormlck to the bat
as a pinch hltter. McCormlck dld hls
part by shooting a little single through
the box, on which Yerkes made a
pretty stop back of second base.
Fletcher pulled up at thlrd on the hlt,
and then Mc*Graw cast the dle by send
ing hlm on to the plate. Yerkes, wlth
the ball ln his hand, made an uocurate
throw to Cady and Fletcher was
caught by a good elght tttt This put

promise of hearing fruit. with thr he ul
Of the batting order up.
1 wlll be interested to rfid McGraw's
own explanation of thl.t play. but from
all ?PPa**_**T_M*_t bt gtbi IM al'ine was
responsible for the errm of Judgment
which aant Fletrlu-r to nure and sudden
death at th*. pl'ite f('r OU thlrd out.
Apart from thia the Giants did not
lack for opportunltles, but nelther Mey?
ers nor Merkle waa able to dellver the
telllng punch when the chances arose.
In some respects the game was one of
wasted opportunltles on both eldes, al?
though the Giants suffered most from
thelr own weakness ln thls respect.
I do not mean to imply by all thls
that the Giants frittered away the
game, and lt ls my purpose to empha
size that the Red Sox won a clean,
well plnyed game on ita merlts. Joe
Wood is a great pltcher. He uses not
only hls wonderful arm, which seems
tn ho made of steel, but his head also.
nnd lt ls a wlse head. Wlth the speed
he develops his control ls llttle short of
marvellous. He did not glve a single
base on balls, struck out elght men,
and whlle he was found for nlne hits
he managed to keep them scattered,
save in one innlng, the luckless sev*
Wlth all credit to Wood, however, he
hnd Captain Wagner to thank on three
or four occaslons for savlng hlm from
what mlght have developed into a seri?
ous bomhardmcnt. Wagner robbed at
least three New Tork players of what
looked like sure hits, and hls one error
under the clrcumstances was excusable.
The whole Boston team, by the way, ls
a strong defensive machine, and the
steadlness in thls respect is being felt
ln tbe series.
Jake Stahl ls now ln a sllghtly
stronger strategic posltlon than Mc
4"Jrav., as Wood can come back on
Mondr.y. wlth two days' rest, whereas
lf it raina ln Boston thls afternoon the
Htar pltcher can be saved untll Tues
day, by whlch tlme he wlU surely
have regalned hls full strength.
The Clants must win ln Boston to?
day to keep ii- the runnlng. Ray Col?
lins may be trled agaln, or Stahl may
send Buck O'Brlen back. It would not
Huri*ri***e mo lf Mc4^?-aw used Tesreau,
who thrlves on work; but the loglcal
choice would be Matty. holdlng Mar
rin.inl and Tesreau in rcserve.
It tMO-l a plty that Tesreau, pit<*h
lng so well as he ha8 ln two games,
should have bfen foreed to the bench
on two occashins for the need of a
pinch hitter. H-a has not /uffered in
compariM'n wlth hia great rival, and
with more experience ls likely to earn
an equally hlgh place in baseball.
The Giants ahowed more famlllarlty
with Wood's curves yeaterday than
in the flrst game. They not only made
nlne hits, but they met many balla
cleanly and hard, which called for the
beat and strongest kind of support,
and whlch was ao freely given. Wood,
as good aa he haa been, ls not unbeat
able, and the Gianta are quite likely
to prove it before the series ls over,
CROSS IS REINSTATED
Commission Finds Leach Com
plied with the Requirements.
Although there were rumors of a possl?
ble dlssenslon at the meeting of the State
Athletic Commlssion yesterday, every
thing turned out peaceable, and the sus

from six months to thlrty days, the time

Cross personally applled to the com?

the matter was taken under advlsement.
It was understood that lf Cross obtalned
the slgnatures of four promlnent sportlng
wrlters expresslng themselves ln favor of
hls relnstatement. the commlssion would
conslder tho matter favorably. Cross ob?
talned the slgnatures. but failed to report
back to the commiBslon.
In the mean time the McMahon brothers
and Cross prepared for last nlght's bout
under the lmpresslon that everything was
all rlght. A special meeting yesterday
was held for the purpose of brlnglng be?
fore the commlssion Cross, his manager,
Sam Wallach and the St. Nlcholas Ath?

that as the managers of the club had
gone to conslderable expense to prepare
for the show and aa 4;ross had done what
was requlred of hlm and had shown such
anxlety to be ln good etandtng agaln
there was no reason why the commission
should stand in the way.
