THE SUN, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1912.

Just hit him. Just hit him that Is all
the explanation there Is.
In the first nvo Innings thn Host on
didn't mako a lilt on ltlg .Toff. HIh
was n hniml nf pitching thry hmln't
neon beforo and they couldn't fathom II.
Tho big fellow came up to requirements
In every way anil It looked an If ho
were, golns through to a shutout Rami.
Ho was pitching ns he had done in
many a game, wild, but composed and
tightening up Immediately after dead
heading a batter to first. The Boston
made the most of Jeff's wlldncss. They
waited as long ns wise before swinging
and compelled Tesreau to uso n good
many balls on each batsman. That was
their plan, to wait for an opening, let
Tesreau uku his arm plentifully and
when the opening came strike hard.
Against tho moro experienced Wood,
Tesreau, young In years and In bin
league experience, , pitched a game
which Is to his credit, even If he did
lose. Wood, however, w.is his superior;
there Is no doubt of that. He may not
bo next time, but he was this time, In
no other position wete the Hod Sox ono
whit superior unless nt short. Fletcher
didn't have as many chances In the
field ns Wagner, but Wagner excelled
his Now Vork vis-a-vis at bat rather
than In the field. The only errors of
the game came nt this position, a
fumble by each shortstop, which cost
nothing. Fletcher's weakness at the bat
was a costly flaw in New York's at
tack. So far as this game went there was
little choice between the two teams In
the matter of ability. In physical
proficiency they wero on a par and
neither as upi.ot by the bigness of the
occasion to a f-crloiis extent. Helm;
only human there was some nervous
ness In the early stnges, but It wore off
and tho struggle proceeded with no
extra tension. It was a hard, stand up
Jlght. with neither breaking ground.
For the most part, too, It was
straightaway playing. The lied Sox
cither depended on the sacrifice or stood
up and slugged. The Giants wero
faster on the bases; that Is. they tools
longer chances on batted balls and
played with their usual aggressiveness
In that respect. They did nothing !n
stealing bases. The opportunities wero
not right for It. Stealing bases was a
forgotten art. The Giants made no at
tempt to steal; the Kcd Sox Just ono.
That one attempt was so beautifully
throttled by Chief Meyers's unerring
throw that the American league cltnm
plons discarded It entirely thereafter.
In short. In tho way of subtlety,
finesse and manreevring there was
much loss than of plain, get there base
ball. The fielding was steady, sometimes
natty, but with nothing brilliant arising.
There were several attractive points In
the fielding, however, to close observers.
One of these was the sharp way In
which Speaker and Hooper of the Bos
ton otittleld pounced on base hits which
were ro bounding that they easily might
have shot awny and been moro damag

In the ninth inning and Hooper not

one could !ny aside for tho moment his

not enough to bother fielders when
gazing upward for tiles. Underfoot thn
conditions were Ideal nnd all that was
needed to make It a perfect baseball
day wan a higher thermometer.
Tho four umpires nnd two managers
discussed for some time Just what con

Beforn Big Jeff could adjust his aim
to tho target as presented by Hooper

Inning he had whipped two high balls

astray as to direction.

through. Both rtruck out. In tho third,
nnd for the third time, the first man
up reached first base. Wood was a
beneficiary of four balls from Tesreau.
Hooper sacrificed and Tesreau fielded
tho ball to Merkle neatly. Yerkes drib
bled to Doyle nnd was defunct. Speaker
waited for four balls, but Lewis couldn't
help the two men who were on bases.
He caught the ball on its tinder side and
It drilled n tunnel perpendicularly.
Fletcher backed out In centre field,
Snodgrass gave way for him, and he
clutched the ball when It finally dropped
down from the etherlal heights.
Tho third inning was an enjoyable
one for the Giants, though beginning
lnausplclously when Tesreau struck
out. Devoro flatly refused to bite nt
balls which weren't directly over and
by jjood waiting took first on four balls.
On a hit nnd run strategem he was well
townrd second when Doyle clapped his
bat Into a towering fly to short left
field. Lewis came In gropingly nnd ap
parently didn't know where tho ball
was. Ho was enlightened when it
struck the turf at his feet. Devore,
burning his bridges behind him, never
slackened pace when Doyle hit and
flashed along to third. Lewis tried
frantically to throw him out nt Gard
ner's bailiwick, but thejre was n scurry
of feet nnd legs nnd arms and Devore
was safe nnd sound nt third. Doyle
took second, which base he would hayo

Snodgrnss was looked to hopefully, but
Wood's hop ball was too much for him.
It was Bed Murray who put on tho
finishing stroke. His single tore past
Yerkes and brought In Devoro and
Doyle. Speaker stopped tho ball with
ono of those one hand reaches which he
has done so fine and his throwln lured
Murray to try for second. Murray had
eased up momentarily when turning
first and tho time lost made him too
late to beat Cady's relay to Wagner.
Pretty catches by Herzog and Merkle
nnd the striking out of Stahl were tho
Ingredients In a quick half Inning fur
the Bed Sox In the fourth. Herzog went
to the stand for Gardner's foul nnd
Merklo to the other wing for Wagner's
foul, Herzog sandwiched In a hit in
New York's fourth. It was n very lone
some hit. Merkle struck out without
offering at a slnglo pitch, Meyers
bounced a hit to Wood nnd was re
tired nt first, and Fletcher struck out.
The Bed Sox hurried through their
fifth Inning. too. that state of iasslvlty
of theirs, a, part being unwilling but
compulsory. Two ground balls and a
strike nut did It. and ns yet Big Jeff
was Invulnerable. In the second half
Tesreau fanned on three pitched bnlls.
Like many another New Yorker tho ball
darted across, the platter when bo
wasn't expecting any such thing nnd ho
was fooled mightily. Devore rocketed
to Lewis, who had located the sun by
now. Doylo was a tougher adversary.
He dipped a sulphuric stinger down th
third base line. Gardner swooped for
tho ball like a hungry gull, but couldn't
do moro than deflect it Into foul ground.
Doyle hit the hlghwny for second, but

It was In the sixth Inning that tho
Red Sox first enjoyed a hit off Tesreau,
and that after Yerkes nnd filed to Snod
grass. It was no less a personago
than Tristram Shandy Speaker who
fashioned tho maiden base hit, and a
fluko it wna In tho bargain. Tristram
Shandy spanked a vitriolic liner to left,
but Devoro had It gauged and would
havo caught It If Snodgrass had not
run In front of him and balked him.

Merkle uplifted to Wagner. "Which

soliloquized Wagner. '

SEVENTH INNING-RED SOX.

latter was forced by Wood, Doyle to
Fletcher, Wagner going to third.
Hooper's two bagger in right scored
Wagner and sent Wood to third.
Yerkes's smash in left scored Wood
and Hooper and the hitter got to
second on the throw in. Tesreau struck
out Speaker. Three runs.
Murray flied to Hooper. iMcrklc

safe one in right. Meyers doubled to
the right field wall but Hooper's throw
held Herzog on third. Becker went in
to run for Meyers. Fletcher struck
out. With the count 3 and 2, Cran

game. One run.
hands nnd only the fact that Fletcher
was there to pick It tip resulted In the
runner from first being put out.
Still there were two out and tho out
look was not alarming. Hooper bad
been frail with tho stick, but with two
strikes staring him In the face be took
a toe hold, pulled a screamer around to
right and It raced past Merkle so fast
that It whined like a bullet. Wagner
romped home with the tying run. Wood
went to third and Hooper to second.
Next came Yerkes, not a formidable bat
ter but this time with a deadly punch In
his sleeve. He singled to left and
Hooper and Wood scored. Speaker
struck out. Barring Hooper's Jolt tho
Boston hitting during this charge was
of small radius, three of tho Jabs being
In tho general direction of centre, but
thn hitting was none tho less peppery
Tho Giants perlihed In the seventh
on Hcrzog'a strikeout, tho forcing out
of Meyers, who had been hit, and Mc
Cormlck'H fly to Lewis. McCormick
wns In tho game long enough to win his
varsity letter. After Fletcher had mado
a piquant gather of Lewis's thrust In
tho eighth and duly thrown out his
man, Crandall struck out Gardner nnd
Stahl. Wagner mopped up smartly hit
balls by Devore and Doylo In tho eighth
nnd his flno throws outstripped each
of those fast movers.
Tho only hit off Crandall was a two
bagger by Wagner In tho ninth. Tho
ball hit the left field palings. Cady's
sacrifice, which wns the first out, put
Wagner on third. Vood's bounder wns
snatched In by Crandall, who threw .loo
out at first. Hooper lined to Doylo and
thn Bostons took the field to hold tho
Giants In check.
Tho Giants died with their boots on
and with their faces to tho foe. Mur
ray drove a long fly to Hooper. Merkle,
for the first lime, gauged Wood cor
rectly und spilled a single In centre.
Hereof; planted a safe fly In right.
Meyers lived up to his reputation as a
pinch hitter by blazing n slnglo to thn
right field parapet. Merkle burned thn
wind for the plate and renched It and
on the throwln Herzog mn to third nnd
Meyers to second.
It was a brilliant opportunity and Mc

With One Out, Two on Rases
nnd One linn Needed for

"Joe Wood for a time was n trifle
nervous," mild President McAIeer of tho
Ued Sox on the way to the train for
Hoston after tho game, "and then
again ho became too confident. Hut he
steadied down and showed the real tnio
gait when ho struck out Fletcher nnd
Crandall In tho ninth Inning, leaving
two Giants on bases."
There Is much truth in McAleer's
review of the work of Huston's great
pitcher. Tho rooting of tho crowd, tho
responsibility placed upon his shout
ders, tho world of gossip anent tho
big series which has been going on for
several weeks all combined to mako tho
smokeball artist a bit unnerved. This
wns nppurent when SnmUrrass mado
tho first hit In tho opening inning,
Wood had easily disposed of De-vuro
and Doyle, nnd with two balls called
on Snodgrass ho cut tho pinto with a
fnst one. Snodgrass, who was fooled
with curved balls later, cracked tno
lenther to centre field, the ball taking
a quick IkiuikI over Wood's head. Then
Wood temporarily lout control of his
curve ball and walked Murray. Rut ho
felt considerably better when Morkle
retired tho sldo with a pop fly.
Wood was steadier in tho second In
ning, although still finding some trou
ble with his control. When ho hit
Hcrzog's bat handle nnd tho latter tried
to mako out thnt ho had been struck
on the arm tho Boston critic In tho
press stand remarked:
"Wood Isn't right He'd never do that
If ho was."
Hut ho showed tho next moment what
ho had In store for tho Giants when
with four pitched balls ho fanned tho
dangerous Mcyors, the third strike be
ing a high fast ball over tho outsldo
corner of tho plato at which the In
dian swung his bat with nil his might.
Wood nlso struck out Fletcher, tho next
man, with a curved ball, under which
Fletcher ducked Just as the leather
shot down over the middle of the plato.
Smoky Joo seemed to loso his best
Judgment In tho third Inning, for with
two men on bases instead of using his
curve balls on Murray, as he had been
Instructed to do, Wood split tho plate
nnd Red Jack lined a beautiful slnglo
to centre, sending In two runs.
Instead of going to pieces, however,
Wood recovered his equilibrium and

A majority of tho fans had given up
hopo when Murray filed to Hooper.
Merkle, who had br en three times a vic

was underrated, Wood nctually turned
off the steam and pitched the first ball
with ordinary swiftness squarely over
tho plate. Quick as a flash Merkle's big
bat landed on the ball with a -crash and
It went careening straight Into centre
field for a single. Instantly thousands
of persons who had left their seats and
wero on their way out turned In their
tracks and Joined thn rest of thn multi

balls over for Herzog, who smashed tho

McGraw. ablaze with excitement and
realizing that victory was almost within
his grasp, took Fletcher to one side and
tilled him with encouraging ndvicc. All

a glorious triumph.
- ("A base hit will do It." was the cry
heard incessantly, "rib, for a pnseli

Standing erect in the box with Jaws
set and ashen face Joe Wood realized ho
nas the man of tho hour. It was up to
him to bafllo the Giants In their des
perate ninth Inning rally. Jake Stahl
and Wagner nnd Cady shouted words
of encouragement to him, but ho heeded
them not. He looked Fletcher squarely
In the face. Ho rubbed the ball tenderly
In his glove, hitched up his trousers,
wiped his noso with his right hand nnd
glanced neither to tho right nor to the
left. Fletcher was his mark and as tho
smokeball champion wound up ho
seemed tho very plcturo of confidence
nnd Iron nerve.
With tremendous speed he shot the
first bnll over the plato nnd Fletcher
swung nt It. It was a foul and a
strike and n groan camo from thou
sands of throats. Again Wood without
a moment's hesitation curved tho
leather squarely nt Fletcher's head, only
to liavo it shoot downward wnlst hitch
