Two Passes by Tyler and a Bad Muff by Max Flack
Send Mitchell Men Doivn to Defeat in Final Game
Mays, the Underhanded,
Pitches Wonderful Ball
for the Winners
By W. J. Macbeth
BOSTON, Mass., Sept. 11.?-Edward
? Grant Burrow-the Grant is for an
illustrious relative who battled in the
big leagues! back in '61-'65?saw his
red-hosed cohorts of the Back Bay win
a world's championship from the Chi?
cago Cubs this afternoon. We were
about to say that Barrow, like his
illustrious kin, led his men to victory.
That would have been stretching the
truth. Good general that he is, Bar?
row had only to look on. The Cubs
conducted their own retreat and their
Baseball's adieu to the public, until
after the war, resulted in a 2 to 1 win
for the Boston American League club.
Not a 2 to 1 triumph. No triumph
was conspicuous to the eye. Proverbial
Boston luck, which had flavored this
bar?) fought series, brok?; loose in
large chunks hero and there through
the mad scrap and saved the faithful
another visit to the windswept feus of
the City of Culture.
Boston, whose representative has
never yet dipped its colors in a world
series engagement, came through to?
day with a whoop and a bang for one
of those customary nose finishes which
have characterized this particular
Costly Muff by Flack
Boston outluckcd Chicago through
the series that has closed. It never
outluckcd the Cubs more than in this
closing game. Lefty Tyler outpitched
the underhanded Mays from start to
finish, yet w??s forced to take the count
because the only hobble, of his support
just happened to follow the southpaw's
loss of control. A muff by Flack, one
of the very surest catchers of the
game, let two Boston runners score.
Those runners, both weak hitters, had
been fortunate enough to draw two
tit' Tyler's four passes.
This closing game, though not so
well attended as the others, was one
of the hardest fought and most inter?
estingly contested of the entire set.
The day was bright, but cold, and the
bleacher crowds were chased away by
the elements. It was a day in which
one could not enthuse to any degree, as
fur coats were comfortable. The spirit.
>f the play, t hero fore, lacked somewh"'
?n appreciation. Perhaps the pall
hearers of the game were somewhat re
sentful, too, over the monetary bicker
inga that disgraced the previous en
counter. For some reason the pastime |
We had another near strike in the :
morning. Nobody concerned is speak
ing much about 'it. But the players,
after making good to Tuesday's crowd,
believed they wen; due for som? con?
sideration from the nurse-tight mag?
nates. A delegation called upon the
interested eluh owners, who promised
to press the National Commission to
loosen up a bit; Indeed, it is whispered j
'hat Weeghman and Frazee guaranteed!
the battlers a sound percentage of to- !
day's receipts, though both denied the !
allegation. Whatever rumpus, if rum?
pus there were, was cleaned up long !
before game time.
Carl Mays and his baffling subway :
ball had the Cubs pretty much up a '
tree all afternoon. Outside the fourth |
inning, the Windy City visitors had |
mighty few opportunities to score. But |
in the fourth Mitchell's boys should I
have sewed up the game tight as a i
drum, for here the National Leaguers
bunched two of their three hits with
Mays's frenzied streak of wildness and
got only enough out of it. all to make
a decent representation.
Manu a "Goat"
Major Leslie Mann, one of the goats
of the series, was the offending victim. !
He allowed himself to be picked oil' ;
first base at a time when .Mays was up
m the air and when all that was nece
sary was to allow the tunneller to dig
his own grave. Mote's the pity, Chi?
cago was on the short end of a 2-to-0
.-(?ore at the time, ^nd the play on
which Mann fell is as old and moth
eaten as Hank O'Day's official garb.
Flack, whose muff in the third inn-'
ing eliminated Chicago from th? pict?
ure, a.s is usually the case, came first
to bat for the Cubs in the fourth inn-,
ing. With a count of two and one he
landed on a fast ball for a clean single1
to centre. Mitchell called for the hit
and run. Flack was away nicely with
the pitch, and Hollocher pulled the
ball around to the extreme confines of
the right foul line, but Mclnnis got
over just in time for a nice pick-up
and an unassisted play at first. Thisj
left Flack on second, with one out.
Mays, in the hole to Mann, finally
ended by hitting Leslie on the ankle.
The big underhanded pitcher was evi?
dently rattled, for Barrow chased a
bevy of heavers to the bullpen. Pas
kert had a br 11 and a strike when;
Schang called for a pitch-out. lie,
nipped Mann off first base with a snap,
throw to Mclnnis. Why Mann strayed:
so far from home under the circum-j
stances will ever remain a mystery.
He was half way to second' when
Schang made the peg, though he got
back so quickly that he made the play I
close. The nap doubtless cost the ball
Par-kert eventually walked, which
would have filled the bases, with only ?
one out. had 'Mann not been killed off. i
On the ball which gave Dode his free!
trip Flack stole third base. Merkle
pumped a long single to left, which
tallied Flack, and which would have
scored any sort of runner from the
midway. Pick's lino drive to Hooper1
ended the inning.
Outside this inning Chicago's oppor?
tunities were somewhat limited. In theI
first three innings the Cubs went out
in order. Pick did single sharply to
left in the second. But two were gone, i
and bo was caught for the third out!
on Mays's quick throw to Mclnnis.!
After the fourth inning the Cubs went
out in order, too. every round. But'
there were horseshoes galore in evi-l
dence for Mays.
Flack Gets a Pass
The tail end of the batting order
lidn't give n rumble in the fifth But
lack opened the sixth by drawing his
? ase. He was forced on a pretty hit
ind-run play with Hollocher when the
atter harpened to pull the ball right '
iround fairly at Mclnnis. Mays then
ont down with his meat hand for ai
top of Mann's wicked slam and rhrew
.0 Shean m time to force Hollocher
ann was snuffed out stealing.
A bare-faced robbery on the part of'
"caman Themas threw the Cub ma- '
?hine out of gear in the seventh. Fred I
erkle was the victim of this particu
ar burglary. In the slot, with only
me out, Merkle smashed a wicked one i
!o\vn the left foul line inches fair
homaa raced over and with his bare
and knocked down the clout. He re- ;
lovered quickly and in time to flag I
e runner by graco of a pretty throw.

Had tiie ball gotten through Thomas,
as it hat} every right to do by law of
average, Merkle would have reached
second at least.
But the hardest luck of all for Chi?
cago or rather Cae prettiest bit of
defensive work for the Sex came in
the eighth inning. Fred Mitchell, des?
perate by this time at the cantanker-!
ous breaks against him, decided to do
his gambling early.
Barber was sent in to bat for Deal.
,\'n player ever hit a ball more fairly
or squarely ih'i'i Barber met on.- of
May's fast oil'ering--. The pellet shot
over Scott's head low with tlie velocity
of a ruh- bullet. Whiteman's only!
hope appeared to bo to hold tlie swat ?
to a single. But this fellow, who has :
been n very great factor toward Bed
Sox success, rushed right in where
angels would have feared to tread for j
i shoestring catch. He came so fast1
and earnestly that after he picked the
ball an inch from the turf he turned
a complete somen ??? tilt, But he held
on to the ball, which would have
been pretty nearly good for the cir-i
cuit had it guiie by, as Strunk made
no effort to Iv-ck up ? i, ? "'?"
O'Farrell butted for Killifer and
offered a Texas leaguer, which Scott.
gobbled up away in behind third after
a hard chase. Scott then raced away
back on foul territory for McCabe's i
twisting foul. McCabe bad been sent!
in to bat for Tyler.
Babe Ruth, ene of the real heroes
of this series, had an opportunity to
break into the box score of the clinch?
ing engagement. Whiteman wrenched]
his neck so badly making his memory
stirring catch off Barber in Cue eighth ?
that he had to retire almost immedi?
ately for the first, aids.
Ruth succeeded to the station. He .
had only one chance and that an easy i
fly from Hollocher in Chicago's dying
ninth, a catch that gave the second out.
Thomas eliminated Flack, the first bat?
ter, with a running catch of a low
foul that was a dream of poetic action.
Mann ended the game with a sharp
grounder to Shean.
Throughout the interesting battle
Tyler was the more often in- hot
water, though he had far from the
brilliant support of his illustrious ad?
versary. In the first inning, with two
down, Strunk was given an official bit
on Hollocher's muff of a pop fly, but
Whiteman wafted gently to Paskert.
Thomas walked with two out in the
second. His light was snuffed out at
second when he overslid the bag trying
to beat Hollocher's throw to Pick off
Schang's slow bounder. Hollocher's
throw, by the way, drew Pick off his
base and there would not have been
a chance for a play otherwise.
And this brings us up to the sad
and uncertain climax of the series?
the third inning?when Chicago tossed
oil' the main prize as it had tossed on
game after game.
Tyler ivas unfortunate enough to be?
gin this round by walking Mays. He
made a very neat play on Hooper's
bunt, however, which turned an appar?
ently safe infield hit into a sacriiice
Then he lost his grip again and pass?e
Shean, one of the very weakest hitter;
i f a'l the Red Sox. When Strunk rolle?
to Pick after hitting a number o
vicious fowls, the Cub rooters breathe?
easier. 'They were ready to offer thanks
giving when Whiteman lined to th.
usually reliable Flack. But Flack, afte
getting both hands fairly on the hard
hit ball dropped it. and ALnys and Sheai
both tallied. Whiteman, who drew th i
lucky life, was snuffed out a monten
later when be attempted to race fror
first to third on Mclnnis's scratch hi
In the fourth inning, which has al

ways be??n Boston's lucky one to date,
Tyler was in tight quarters again. The
R?.sd Sox rilled the bas?s with only one
out. Scott opened with a single off
DeaPs meat hand.. Thomas sacrificed
before Scnang drew his base.- Mays as?
tonished the natives by laying a per?
fect bunt toward third. Hooper hit
sharply but right at Merkle, whose
throw to Killifer forced Scott at the
plate. Shean hit wickedly down the
left foul line. Deal broke down the ball
with his left hand and recovered it,
while his foot was still on the bag, in
time to force out Mays.
Tyler Gets Stronger
From then on Tyler had the Sox eat
j ing out of his hand. Only three men
got on in as many succeeding inning*
i as he worked. Mclnnis was safe on
Tyler's own error in the fifth, but two
j were already out. Schang walked with
I only one gone In the sixth, but was
i caught stealing. Strunk singled in the
| soventh, but again two wero out and
| Wbiteman offered the easiest iraagina
! ble fly to Paskert. Hendrix pitched tin
last inning for the Cubs. Mclnnis, Scott
find Thomas, who faced him, were all
retired on easy fly balls.
The close of to-day's world series,
which probably marks the end of pro?
fessional baseball until after the war.
seems to establish the superiority of
the American League over its major
rival. Counting the 1903 tilt between
the Pirates and the Rod Sox, which
was not played under the auspices of
the National Commission, fifteen
classics have been decided. Of these,
American League teams have won ten
and National League teams five.
No Boston team has ever been heaten
for a world championship. This is the
fifth time the Red Sox have won the
honors, beating P?ttsburg live games
to three ?ri.1903; the Giants four to
three (with a tie on the side) in 1912;
the Phillies four to one in 1915;
Brooklyn four to one in 191o and the
Chicago Cubs four to two this time.
The Sox therefore have won twenty
one world series battles and have lost
The fair name of the city of Boston
was not disgraced by the National
League entry of iyi4, when Stallings'
Braves took the vaunted Athletics into
camp for four straight games.
They say Boston is a good baseball
town?one of the very best. And no?
body will dispute the allegation. lint
why shouldn't it be? It has seen six
of the fifteen world series title
struggles since the American League
was recognized as a major organiza?
tion. And it has never yet been dis?
appointed in its team.
