OF DEVORE SAVES
GAME FOR GIANTS
New York Catcher Claims little
Outfielder! Performance Gives
McGrawites Bew Hope.
CONFIDENT OF TAKING SEBIES
Ily JOIIX "CHIBF" MEYERS
Boston. Oct. 10. Nothing can keep the
world's basebalj championship from the
New York1 GlanU. We hae the Red Sox
on the run and can beat their best pitch
ers while they cannot find ours. We
have outgeneraled; outfought, and out
earned them. The most remarkable lot
of good luck has smiled upon their en
tice ors so far That is why to-night we
are on no better than eten terms In the
IJoMon's last chance flickered out to
day when ne stepped up eien with the
Ited Sox I believe It was the most ex
citing finish ever seen in a world's series.
Little Josh Deore kept us In the race.
I never saw such a wonderful catch as
that of his which ended the game In our
fa or I did not think he had even one
chance in ten million to shut off the win
ning run Henrlcksen was on third and
Wagner on s-econd. with two out. Had
Cady's drive eluded Devore, Wagner
could have miked In with the run that
would hae beaten us.
Deiorr's catch was all the rrore re
markable because fie was playing a
short field and had to run away out for
the !cious line ilrie. Capt Doyl knew
that Cady. a left-field hitter, was not
liable to drive into right. He wished. In
tape of the worsf happening, to be able
to shut off Wagner from scoring. lis this
would hae twen the winning run. If
Henrlcksen only should score, the game
would bo no worse than a tie. Deore
was In close to h.ie the adtantnge of a
shorter throw to the plate in case of a
bit Into his territorv.
A l.li.-'kj- lilt.
Kulw was in the hole for he had
curved two at Cad to the Inside, for
called balls The count was two and
nothing so I Mcnalled for a. fast one.
It came like a bullet and Cady swung
blind I know It was half an accident,
lor the lull would have been two feet
on the outside. Cad's bat got just
about half way around whn It con
nected with the leather square as any
hit ou ever saw.
zJosh wat. away with the swing, running
as he never ran before. He neer once
faltered nor looked back. If he had we
would haie lost. It was the most ex
cellent piece of judgment I ever saw.
But I would nave bet my life on the
ball Jly heart stopped beating. I held
my breath, jet looked on fascinated. I
saw the little fellow leap high and
turned away. I thought he had m!sed.
I turned back to look and the whole
Boston town thundered Its approval for
wht to it must have been a heart
breaking play. Devore was still carried
on and on in his career. Back toward
RtvnAtwd miinH In IVn. rlr-ht no mi
fu!I as a gull on wing and came danc-
ing back toward us. his hard earned
trophy held aloft. Truly I half envied
nlm the glory of that supreme moment.
Marquard was the first to embrace De
vore. Honest tears stood In the good
fellow's ees. Yet even had Devore
failed In this superhuman feat the Hube
would still have pitched one of the most
glorious battles of his sensational ca
reer. I caught him all through that
wonderful run of nineteen straight vic
tories, but never, as to-day, did he com
bine ever element of pltch'ng perfec
tion with such tantalizing grace.
How Boston ever managed to get seven
bits off this great southpaw I cannot
figure for the life of me. Rube must
have been unfortunate enough to hit
their bats once in a while. His fast
ball had such a sharp break that It ap
peared even to me half uncanny at
Only once did I leve the box to con
sult with Marquard. That was In the
last Inning atfer Lewis reached first.
The stands were in such an uproar that
I thought a little chat might benefit
"We've got 'em two to nothing." I
told "Rube." "There Is one out. Pitch
for the batter all the time." Then things
began to happen with startling rapidity.
Gardner hooked a low one to the In
side which shot down past Merkle. hit
the paling and eluded Devore. Right
there Boston overlooked its chance for
a championship. Lewis could easily
have scored and the batter reached
third base but for a mixup between
Speaker and Wagner, both of whom
were near third base. One caught Lewis
as he rounded third and dragged him
back. The other fought to send him
home. Now a good relay to the plate
would have nipped Lewis after he final
ly did dash In, but Merkle juggled De
vore's throw and the run counted.
Gardner, however, was held at second,
fortunately for us. Hed he taken third
the beans would ha-e been spilled.
New York will now win the world's
championship for Its our's sure as fate.
The rest of the game doesn't matter
much. We earned our runs, slugger
O'Brien for them. We should have had
more If Boston's luck hadn't stuck out
on half a dozen of occasions.
Here's how I figure victory ours: Joe.
Wood .will have to work at the Polo
Grounds tomorrow and we should beat
him especially If Tesreau starts. Matty
will be ablt to produce a winner, sure,
by Monday. Ames or Crandall should
take case of us in Saturday's fray.
