GIANTS BOW TO RED
SOX, BUT DIE HARD
(ontlnned from flrat page.
twelve years now Matty has heen drop
Ping them over the plate for McGraw.
He has seen the Browns. the Benders,
tl.e Overalls and all the rest come,
serve thelr appolnted tlme and pass on.
But wlth all the Woods, Johnsons and
others of a newer generation, none can
show the old master anythlng when it
comes to pltchlng.
There ls an ugly trlangle at Fenway
Park formed by the temporary stands
which have been put up for the series.
lt has an openlng of a few feet at one
corner. When Hooper rapped a burn?
ing hlt past thlrd ln the thlrd innlng.
and Herzog fell down in trying to*
reah it. the ball sped through thls
openlng. Devore raced after it, and
was hldden from view an lnterminable
time before he reappeared and replayed
the ball to the Infleld. In the mean
time Hooper had reached third.
Steve Yerkes. promptly taking hls
cue, Uned the sphere between Devore
and Snodgrass for a clean three base
hit acorlng Hooper with the only run
carned by the Red Sox. The next three
men Up in the inning dld not Uft the
ball out of the infleld. and Yerkes
*ouM never have scored exeept for the
teet that Larry Doyle fumbled Speak
Sr'a easy tap. Tris was out. Devore to
Fletcher. in trylng to reach second,
I. uls bounced one rlght into Matty's
hands and Gardner drlbbled to Merkle.
Thus was the game won.
Not a Pass for Red Sox.
It was one. two. three for the Red
Sox thereafter. When the last man
was put out ln the eighth innlng. Matty
had the dlstlnction of completing nlne
teen consecutlve Innlngs ln a world s
s.rles wlthout giving a pass. In tne
eleven innlng tle game on Wednesday
n..t a player walked. and the same rule
was in force in the eight Innlngs he
worked to-day. He struck out only
two men and allowed flve hits all of
whlch came ln the flrst three lnning^
one of hls strike-outs was Interjected
at a most favorable tlme.
Hooper and Speaker slngled in he
first frame. and with two on the p.i h.
Uettf f^ned Gardner for the thlrd
0U| ' Wagner slngled wlth one out in
the second. but got no further than
second. as Cady ar.d Bedlent were
easy outs. Then came the M*^*?**
the thlrd which won the game for the
Red L and ended. thelr act.vitieson
the offence. .
Bedlent deserves every blt of the
endit and glory whlch he earned by'W
b llllunt victory. His wlldnea. during
the two innlngs in which he teceAthe,
Giants before to-day's game led Mc
G awto give order. to walt the younj
Mercut. The men proceededtodo this,
and made Hugh work hard.
When the command went forth to
hU at everything that looked good he
Gianta wok*? up to the palnful reali-*
So> that they could not hlt. No one
had much confidence ln Bodl?t - -*?
l,v to last out the game, and Stahl dto
patched a couple of twirlers to warm
up as soon as the contest started. tor
the flrst few innlngs Hugh waa ln a
hole ai' the tlme. but only Devore and
Murray coaxed paaaes out of hlm.
* The tlme to get the youngster was
rlght at the etart, and the Giants began
well but Bedlent kept pegglng away
? hls task and never faltered. Devore
walked to start the game. but Doylo
poppod to Lewls and Snodgrass hlt lnto
a double play In the second Murray
led off by getting a pass. but neither
Merkle. Hersog nor Meyers could hit
Doyle's Chance for Fame.
After Fletcher had dled ln the thlrd
an opening was presented whlch had
victory wrltten on it. Matty made the
flrst hit, a single to centre, and Devore
drew another pass. To tell how Larry
Doyle falied to come through with the
sort of hits that have made hlm famous
4* now an old story, but lt happened
agaln to-day. and he drlfted to Speak?
er. Snodgrass fouled out, and the flrst
?,f two chances was paased up.
For the next three Innlngs the vls?
ltors retlred ln order. In the seventh
up rose "Mueh" McCormlck and struck
a blow for freedom. Would that there
were more McCormlcks on the team.
Fred Merkle paved the way for a run
hy doubllng into the centre fleld bleach?
ers. Hersog, after foullng half a doxen
times. flnally popped to Wagner.
Meyers dld his best to follow Merkle's
sult and aimed one for the bleachers.
but he dld not put quite power enough
ln hls awlng, and Speaker corralled the
ball. It amounted t<> a sacrlflce fly,
however, for Merkle reached thlrd. Mc?
Cormlck. batting- for Fletcher. then
sent a Lerrlflc smash, which Gardner
failed to hold, and Merkle scored.
Matty missed getting another hlt by
a halr, but Gardner got hls fast one.
far over to the left and tossed hlm out.
So ended New York's last opportunity.
Redlent finished so strong that he
fanned Devore and Snoograss in tho
eighth. Doyle linlng to Stahl. In the
ninth Merkle made what looked Hke a
bld for a home run, when hls long
floatlng fly drifted out to deep centre
fleld. Speaker made a great catch and
saved the day.
In flve of the nlne Innlngs he pltched.
Redlent retlred the side In order. He
gave only three passes, and these came
ln three dlfferent innlngs. His three hits
were all well acattered. He was ln
difflculty only twice during the game
and pulled out safely once, while a
scratch hit barred a apectacular exit
from the other plnch. He showed raro
promise for a youngster. To carry out
a vlctory ln a world's series In hls first
year ln fast company is an envlable
record. Only two strlpllngs have ever
been intrusted wlth such an Important
asslgnment in their flrst year ont.
These are "Habe" Adams, of the
Plrutes, and Jeff Tesreau. Jeff has yet
to earn his laurels.
The day was one which favored
speed, and Hedient had it to epara.
After thelr work against Wood yester?
day. lt seemed as though the Giants
could hammer almost any other twirler
with eaae. Redlent has not got Wood'a
fast ball. but hls had enough of a hop
to puzzle McGraw's men. with the con?
dltlons such as they were. A thlck fog
hung over the clty all the mornlng. and
there were grave doubts about a game
belng played. The mists were .tblnner
by noontime, but when the game was
called it was lmposslble to see more
than flve blocks away.
Heavy Miet Threatenad Game.
It was one of the kind of days when
some people raise umbrellas because it
s rainlng and others keep them down
because it is not. The gates of the park
were not opened until 11 o'clock, and
j shortly after the noon hour it was an
J nounced that the game was Ofl. The
| weather had no effect on the attend
! nnce, and the "fans" poured out in
I great numbers. There was much on
| thusiasm manifested all during the en
I i ounter, pride at the unexpected show?
ing of Bedient vylng with the joy of a
victory whlch practically assured the
, Red Sox of tbe ehamplonship.
Neither twirler offered hard chances
for their teammates, and the wet fleld
slowed up grounders appreclably. On
the whole, the contest was well and
cleanly played. Gardner made two
startling playa for the Red Sox, tossing
out Merkle in the second and Matty
ln the seventh in brilllant fashlon.
Speaker chipped ln with two flno
Herzog made a wonderful stop in the
flrst innlng when Lewls forced Hooper
at third, while hls fast flelding on the
same players drive ln the sixth left
nothing to be dc_ired. Larry Doyle
robbed Bedient of a hit In the aecond,
while Fletcher dld the same for Yerkes
ln the ttfth. Shafer handled the Bhor't
fleld after McCormlck had batted for
Fletcher in the seventh. The youngster
got ln the limellght right away with a
flne play on Cady's rap.
