1 BOSTON, Oct. 10. Nothing can keep
fl the world's baseball championship from
I the New York Giant'. We have the Red
1 Sox on the run. We can beat their best i
I pitchers while they cannot bent ours.
Wc have out-gcncralcd. out-fought, out- i
nerved and out-gained them. The most I
remarkable lot of good luck ever seen In
K any such Important series haa smiled i
upon thejr endeavors ho far. That Is why
tonight we are no better than even terms I
In the standing. But the Hinmplon-1
ship now Is a matter of but a short time, j
Boston's last chance flickered out totla
when wc stepped up even with the Red
ox. I believe It was the mom exciting
finish ever seen In a world's scries. L.!t-r
tic .losh Devorc kept us in the nice. 1
neH saw such a wonderful catch as that
of his which ended the game In our favor.
I did not think he had cvi-n one chance In
tn million to shut off the winning run.
Hcnrlcksen was on third and Wagner
I on second with two out. Mad Cnds'
drive ludcd Devorc. Wagner could have
ualkfd In with the run that would have
H beaten us.
H Dev ore's catch was all the more rc
tS inarknble. because he was playing a
j short field and had to run away out for
BJ the vicious line drive. Captain Doyle
P knew that Cady. a left field hitter, was
I not liable to drive into right. He
wished In case of the worst happening,
to be able to shut off Wagner from scor
ing as thin would have been the win
nine run. If llenrlckscn only should
.score the game would be no worse than
a tie. Devorc was In close to have the
I advantage of a shorter throw . to the
i plate In case of a hit into his tcrrl
I Devore's Great Catch,
"Rube"' was In the hole, for he had
ctoil two at Cady to the Inside for
ciillH halls The count was 2 to 0. ko I
signalled for a fast one. It came like
n a bullr-t and Cady swung blind. I know)
m It mis half an accident for the ball would ,
Ig have been two feet to the outside. Cadv's
M hat got Just about half way round when
1 It connected with the leather, square as
anv hit you ever saw.
Josh was away with the swing, running
1 as he never ran before.
HI He never once faltered nor looked back.

he awooped around to the right as grace
fully as a gull on wing and came dancing
back toward us. his hard-earned trophy
held aloft. Truly I half envied him the
clory of that supreme moment.
Marquard was the first to embrace De
vore. Honest tear stood In the good
fellow's eyes. Yet even had Devore

McGraw's "Lemons" Save
' Giants When Pinch Gomes
Rube Marquard and Josh Devore, 'Taunted As False
Alarms, Prove Their Worth at Psychological
By Damon Kunyon.
By International News Service.
BOSTON. Oct. 10. And you shall
hear the story of how Josh Devorc,
the little duck-legged outfielder
of the Giants, who has been taunt
ed and Joshed by the big town
fans this season until his boyish heart
was almost broken, came leaping up to
gnne emergency today, rescuing his
room-mate, the sensational Itubc Mar
quard. from the peril of Impending de
feat and giving the New York team the
third game in the world's series by a
score of L' to 1.
You shall hear, too, how that samo
Marquard. once derided as the $11.00(1
lemon, held the slugging Boston Red Sox
helpless for eight Innings before the
magic of his left arm, soothed and petted
along by his comrades like a Highly
prima donna, only lo find himself crowded
into danger in tiie final moments of tho
gnmo because of an unfortunate muff of
a thrown ball by Fred Mcrklc, the big
llnu baseman of the Gotham club.
Then there Is a story of how another
Frank Baker hovered at the threshold of
fame, only to sec the door slammed In
his fnce. But that Is a part of tho story
of the thrilling ninth Inning, when all the
splendid work of Rube Marquard was
about to be lllcked away. Usuallv the
hero of the game enters to the crash of
the bat, and I hat is the way Forrest
Cady, a big, gangling, raw recruit of the
Red Sox, was making his appearance
this afternoon, when the diminutive De
vorc Hashed up out of comparative ob
scurity and made a startling catch which
saved the Giants' cause, putting New
York on even terms with Boston in the
battle for the baseball championship of
But for the remarkable catch Marquard
surelv would have been defeated and
Cady's name would be typed Inrgc to
moriuw morning from coast to coast.
A Great Situation.
It was the situation typical of tho old
tlmo (let Ion. story of baseball the last
half of the ninth Inning, two men on
base5!, two men out and tho home team
needing just those two runs to win the
game. A mere single would do It, and
.lake Stahl. the Red Sox chief, pinned his
failh to Cad v. a flist-ycar man on his
catching staff who had come into the
game late, relieving Bill Carilgan
For two long hours Marquard had
pitched wonderlnl ball. Inning after in
ning he had swept the heav hitters of
the Sox aside with the swish of his pow
erful left arm, pitching as he pitched
early this season when he (lamed across
the baseball world with nineteen straight
victories. The Giant hillcldcrs were
watching and guarding him with eager
care every minute of the lime, dreading
that flash of unsteadiness that had
marked the work of the tall fellow since
his wonderful run was shattered months
ago. Once or twice he seemed to nausc
In his pitching stride, and Doyle and
Herzog and Mcrklc would close in on him,
babbling words of encouragement Occa
sionally Meyers, the big Indian catcher,
would walk out to the box and talk
I soothingly to the pitcher, his white teeth
gleaming behind his musk as he grinned
In heartening fashion.
The Giants had broken through the
spllball delivery of young Buck O'Brien,
the Brockton boy. for two runs between
l the first and fifth Innings. A few months
ago two runs would have been consld
'red a good and sufficient margin for
Marquard over any club, but after hav
ing seen much si longer leads than that
blown away by opposing batsmen like

unsteadiness on the part" of the left

Larry Gardner smashed a drive that

Heine Wagner, the Sox accond baseman,

home as he saw Devore's fumble. Duffy
started off as .losh made a poor throw
to tho Infield and scored easily while
Gardner pulled up at second.
The stands were blazing with the red
pennants of the Boston rooters and 35.000

Whether ho would be able again to show

manifested remarkable confidence over
his ability to beat the Sox.

Kansas City Boxer Secures Hair-Line Decision Overl f.
Helper-Fireman in Exciting Contest at $
Salt Lake Theater. ' fy
After fifteen rounds of tho fastest box
ing ever seen In this city, Harry Brewer,
tho Kansas City wcltcrwolaht anil claim
ant of tho championship of this division,
was awarded the decision over Marty
Rowan, the Helper ilrcman. Brewer land
ed by far the greater number of blows
and showed superior ring generalship.
Rowan is the toughest kind of a custom
er, however, and at no stapo of the bout
was he In distress from Brewer's attach,
while ho mado his blows count. Many or
tho spectators thought him entitled to a
draw considering his constant boring in,
bis ability to take punishment nnd his
whirlwind finish of tho last several
'Brewer barely had a shade," said a
ring expert after the bout; "in facl, it
was not a shade just a shadow.-'
Referee Hardy Downing made a
unique decision In the seventh round, but
one that was popular with the crowd.
Kowan hit. low in a clinch and Brewer
foil lo the Moor, writhing in apparent
pain. By all ring precedent the referee
should either have counted Brewer out
or awarded him the decision on a foul.
But Downing did noitber. II sent the
men to Ihcir corners and, after giving
them a brief rest, sent them at It again,
announcing that the fractional part of a
round would not couoi. After Hie bout
I Downing gavo the following explanation
of bis ruling:
T never permit my actions as a
referee to bo governed by technicali
ties, socking only to give the con
testants a fair deal and the spectators
a run for their money. "Rowan had
struck below the belt, but the foul
was accidental and I was" satisfied
that Brewer was not hurt. The spec
tators paid their money to see a
fifteen-round bout, and 1 saw no rea
son why the spectators should be dis
appointed. All Rounds Fast.
The entire fifteen and one-half rounds
of tho "bout wero crowded with action.
Brewer, fast as a streak and a beautiful
boxer, jabbed away with his left, landing
at will on Rowan's faco whllo the Helper
lad. always boring in. took Brewer's tops
without flinching, waiting for an oppor
tunity to whip In a solid punch to the
head or body. In a large majority of
tho rounds Brewer had the shade. land
ing two blows for every one he received,
but Rowan's punches when they did land
had much more forco behind them.
Brewer's showing was all tho better con
sidering that he was fighting with a
crippled right hand which he hurt In

men stood head to head nnd exchanged

Rowan, shaded in tho earlier rounds,
fought like a tiger during tho latter part
of tho bout and partially evened up tho
The boxers lost little timo In feeling

IIo changed hla tactics In tho third
