Some were Inclined to score the play as a

a triple for Jake.
If asked for their version of It nn
Red Sox player will tell you the break
of the game came In the (Uth Inning,
when Hank O'Day failed to call a strike
on Mike Mowrey. Subsequent happen
ings showed this to be the turning point
of the game. O'Day called one ball on
Mowrey, and then Mike's bat left his

changed his mind.

Carrlgan argued long and loudly that
It was a strike, and O'Day had to give

the fourth hall. Had O'Day called n

This proved highly Important, as Olson

Henrlkron, a famous pinch hitter of

run on Hooper's triple.
First Steal for Wheat.
Vesterdny's game produced the first
stcnl, and It went to Wheat. Zack was
assisted in his theft by a short wild
pitch. From now on the series should
bo even harder fought than before,
Hrooklyn's victory will slve tho- boys
from across the bridge fresh confidence.
That victory meant everything to the
Hrooklyn. Daubert's hitting nnd
Pfeffer' pitching yesterday are as valu
nbln to the team morale lis the victory.
The Huperbas believe that with Daubert
hitting, nothing enn stop them. After
Pfeffer reliever! Coombs, ho retired the
eight Sox that faced him ns fast as they
came. That kind of pitching may win

At least Coombs had the Mitlsfiictlon

I off form. Ills cxlrumlst dellveiv

Hrooklyn batsmen made rather free with
It. The result wns the recall of Mays,
and the sixth Inning found George Pos
ter pitching to the Superbas.
Olson Ilrooklyn Hern,
To be exact, Mays was not 1'orced to
retire under fire. Jle was taken nut of
the box to permit Olaf Hcnrlksen bat
for him in the sixth round. That
manoeuvre of William Cnrrlgan's proved
Justified, for It gave Hcnrlksen n pass,
which started the little rally that earned
for llostun Its first two runs. Hairy
Hooper followed Hcnrlksen with a three
base hit to right centre and wns soon
scored by a single by Charles Shorten.
Major credit for tho Hrooklyn victory
belongs to Ivan Olson, by most critics
neglected In forecasts im u possible fac
tor In Stiiierba success, It wns Olson
who, with a one base hit, opened the
little rally that gave Hrooklyn Its sec
ond run In the fourth Inning, It was
Olson who, with n prodigious hlow Hint
gave him three bases, scored Wheat nnd
Mike Mowrey with tho two tnllles that
gave the Superba legions their winning
runs in the fifth Inning, Olson was an
effective worker In the field, too, and
gave his disparagers something about
which to think.
Olson was only nn anchor to the wind
ward when the Su.ocrhns opened their
campaign for the pennant, but when
Oliver O'Mara failed to come up to ex
pectations, Hoblnson, In desperation, fell
back on Olson. Ho was ostensibly only
a makeshift. Knowing experts spoko of
him as a mock shortstop. Yet Olson
proved the grittiest of Superbas In the
gruelling tight, lie made a poor start
in the series last Saturday, but on Mon
day and yesterday earned a place with
Shorten Ilnstnn'a Star.
Shorten wiik Hoston's hero in defeat.
It wns only recently that he wns re-
