Another Inning, the eighth, was begin

were returning to tho attack. At the

swing he sent trie ball whistling high

Into left field. And a moment later a
faint twinkle came Into the expression
less eyes of McOraw a twinkle of con
fidence, reassured. The Boston out
fielder had blundered, you see, and
Snodgrass was dancing oft first.
Perhaps as McOraw saw him he foil
that the turn had come. But a moment
later he knew, for from Doyle's bat a
hit went ringing over second -and Col

the Ney In tho man took command.
Darting from his post he whispered
something to Becker. Then Becker
railed ana a man waa out. Now red
haired, red-tempered Murray came run

eager, menacing. And again McOraw
darted aside, wnlspered this time that
Collins was gone, a revelation of the
specific weakness In his armor. And
Murray, heeding his general, waited and

faith In himself, saw tho flash of a bat
and a long white arc that, rising abovo
the Infield, dropped far beyond the left
bleacher wall. And when he looked
again Bnodgrass was home, Becker on
third, Murray on second.
But now McOraw changed his tactics
a second time. Silent strategy gave way
to the dramatic, the obvious. Up and
down the lines he stalked, calling over
his shoulder to the faltering Collins,
pantomiming expressively, urging on his
men with sharp tongue lashing, calling

was as if fate had said: "Now or not

The Tenth Inning.
The mechanics of that tenth inning
you know. You know that Merkle
crashed tho ball far afield, never stop
ping running till In reached third. But
do you know that only a quick wave
from McOraw urged on Merkle from
second? Do you know that when Buhl
gave orders to pass Meyers so that
Merkle could not scoro on an inevitable
sacrifice fly, McOraw put McCormlck to
winging bats? Do you know that,
fearing Meyers slowness, he sent
Shafcr to run for him; that with Mc
Cormlck at bat he cried to the nervous,
faltering Bedlent: "Watch out for long
hits to tho outfield?" So was Bedlent
unnerved. So did he throw open his
guard for McCormlck; ao did tin ball
go shooting toward tho fences, and
Merkle scampered home.
All these things did McOraw this
doughty Ney, to whom Fenway Park
was as Austerllts, his gray Olants an
old guard that did not fall.

BOSTON, Mass., Oct. 10. Josh Do
vore's right arm, which was hit during
batting practice on the Polo Grounds
Tuesdsy afternoon, Is so badly swollen
that the little fellow may be out of the
game during tho remainder of the
series. Dovore tried to warm up here
yesterday, but the arm naa so weak
that McOraw sent Becker to center field
and moved Bnodgrass to left.
The city lias gone baseball mad, and
the more rabid "fans" are now shout
ing that If tho Giants were unnble to
win with Matty In the box thuy will
not be able to down the Red Sox at all,
or. It victory Is theirs, it will not be by
a margin of more than one game.
The "Royal nootsrs" were out In
forco again yesterday. Headed by their
brass band, they marched around the
park and entered the field through a
gate In front of the center field bleach
ers. A blare of martial muaie heralded
their approach, but once on the scene,
of action they fell back on the old re
liable "Tessle" and "Tammany." There
is not a man In the ranks but believes
that theso songs constitute a fetich
which will see their favorites through
to victory in the end.
The Boston Elks Here also on hand
with a full brass band. They drove
down to the park in "rubberneck autos"
and occupied seats In the grandstand,
where they kept the "fans" amused by
the tunes. Unfortunately both bands
Insisted on playing at the aamo time.
The band of the Elks had a varied
repertoire, while the rooters stuck to
their two favorites. At times the dis
cord was almost soothing to tho nerves.
In military array, fours front, the
Rooters marched to the center field
seats which had been set aside for
them, and throughout the game they
caused a riot of nolee. Many "fans'
leaped out of the regular bleachers and
tried o force an entrance into the sanc
tuary of the original "bugs," but a cor
don of mounted pollco herded them all
back whence they came. One woman
,was Insistent in her demands to sit in
the midst or me loyai ones out a nusxy
cop lifted her bodily ovor the fence, and
mado her go back.
The sun came out In tho second half of
the fifth inning and shone down fiercely
into right field. Murray and Snodgrass
at once changed places, for. the former
cannot cover the sunfield.
Some enterprising venders were on
hand with pennants bearing the legend
In- white block letters: "Red Sox,
World's Champions, 191?," The enthu
siastic "fans" snapped them up, and tho
enterprising youths reaped a harvest.

PLENTY OF ACTION
ON BOSTON FIELD
Hits Flew Thick and Fast, Many,
Being For Extra'
By WALTER JOHNSON.
BOSTON, Mass., Oct. la-It 'would
be almost Impossible to get two games
to dlrfel- In so many respects as dl)
yesterday's eleven-inning -to- contett
and the 4-to-l game played In Now
York Tuesday. Over at tho Polo
Grounds, It was a pitchers' battle nil
the way through and the hitting "'
very light. The fielding In the Hist'
game was very sharp and clean and
only two mlscues were seen. Yeatur-'
day the gamo was very poorly played J
by both teams, lilts flew thick and I
fast and as msny of the hits were for
extra bases the game gave the fan
plenty of action.
Ray Collins looked to have a lot of
stuff on the bull, but the Olants hit
him for nine ear drives for a total of
fifteen bases. It was not a Collins day,
the weather toeing far too cool for tlu
big Vermont southpaw, who stiffens up
very quickly when the air is at nil
Mutt Keep Arm Moving.
Collins Is one of those pltch-rs whi
must keep his arm moving all the time
when he Is working In anything but
warm weather, and It was noticeable
yesterday that when the game was de
layed for a short time ColUns waa stiff.
Collins faced a team with far more
fight In It than did Wood on Tuesday.
The Giants had failed to hit Wood and
they entered yesterday's contest fully
determined to hit the ball hard and
regardless of who was working for the
Ray might have pulled out a winner
had not Duffy Lewis dropped that line
drive from Bnodgrass' bat In the eighth.
Lewis' boot gave the Giants their start
to tie up the game, and, by bunching
a single and a double off Collins' and a
double oft Charlie Hall, by the time that
the three men were retired In this
round the teams were on aven terms,
the score being three all. Hall was
ery wild, and got himself in the hole
on almost every batter who made him
pitch, and when the Giants had him
three and two and he was obliged to
put the ball over or wslk the batter,
they hit and hit hard. Bedlent was not
in the game for a sufficient length of
time to pass Judgment on, but two or
three batters that faced him reached
first only to die stealing.
It was the miserable support tendered
Mathewson that robbed him of a vic
tory and forced the game to go to extra
innings. Matty was a bit careless him
self on Hooper's tap to the box In the
first Inning, and the ball got away
from him for a hit. After Hooper had
stolen 'second, Fletcher dropped Yerkes'
liner when he had both hands on the
ball, and instead of pulling off an easy
double play the Red Sox had two on
nd none out.
Speaker then crossed up the entire
New York Infield, every one of whom

fully expected that he would hit It out,
and so when he laid donn a bunt along
the third-base line, Mathewson and
Herxog were caught flat-footed, and the
bases were filled when there should
have been two out and possibly only
Bpsaker on bases. Tho Red Box sent
over three runs In this Inning. The
Red Sox's tlelng run In the tenth was
the result of Wilson not getting Shafer's
pretty throw, which had' Speaker beaten
to the plate.
Heine Wagnor was the star of the
Red Sox on the defense. He made play
upon play of the most sensationsl order
and but for the wonderfully deter work
of the veteran shortstop the Red Sox
would never have figured In the game.
Heine accepted ten hard chances and It
will be some time beforo a better exhi
bition of putting tho ball on runners
and of blocking will be seen.
Wagner "rode" every base runner on
whom there was a play and only one
man Herxog got away with a atolen
baae when there was a chance to get
him. Wagner's atop of Fletcher's
grounder, which was traveling at a
terrific rate of speed over by second
base, wss a great piece of ground-covering.
As was the case In 1(08, Hooper did
not find Mathewson hard to hit, for
yesterday he connected with two singles
and a double out of five trips to the bat.
Hooper proved to be very fast, on the
bases and purloined two bases on Mey
ers, who was throwing In good form.
Duffy Lewis hit tho ball hard every
time up, but only tno of his drives went
safe, a healthy pair of two-baggers.
Speaker waa another who found Mat
ty's pitching to hla lilting, for of the
Ave times that he went up to the plate
he met the ball hard and square, with
bu.t one exception.

robbed him of a triple In the third,
while his line drive In the fifth shook
Fletcher, who speared It, from head to
foot.' Speaker made the longest drive
or the day when he shot the ball over
Decker's head for a triple In the tenth.
Murray and Herxog did soma great
hitting for the Giants and the tost part
of their stick work was that It was
timely. Doyle was the defensive star
and It was Larry's stop of what looked
like a euro hit off Gardner's bat that
saved the day for the Olants, for tf the
ball had gone Into right field Lewis
would have tallied the winning run.
Today will bring out Bubk O'Brien
and Rube Marquard and a great battle
la expected. If Buck has tils spltter
bresklng good the Olants will find that
he Is much harder to hit than either
Wood or Collins, for Buck breaks his
moist ball low and has a fast Inside ball
that Is a wonder.
Chief Meyers settled all doubts as to
which tribe of Indians he belongs. "I
am a Cahullla Indian, a branch of the
Mission nation." he said. "The name Is
pronounced Kaw Wee Yah." The chief
said Jokingly that he did not object to
being called an Apache, a Sioux, or a
Comanche, when reference to hla

Footwork has gone headwork haa

Giants hit Wood harder than they ex
pected to on Tuesday, and yesterday
they tore the glistening hide off both
Collins and Hall. They believe they
hare Boston's pitching In hand and will
continue to hit unless some one shows
a bit of Improvement over what has
gone before. After beating Tesreau, the
Boston team found the Giants' defense
so far apart that six unearned runs
were pushed across. But one would have
been netted It the Olants had supported
Matty faultlessly. When a ball club Is
drawing six unearned runs within one
fleeting afternoon the defensive play of
the opposing tesm csn be summed up
briefly without calling upon any burn

From the Giant viewpoint, McOraw

way, although Mathewson would have

Back of Mathewson Fletcher cracked

Merkle and Doyle contributed three ad

by the official scorers. The breaks by
Dovle and Merkle cost nothing, but
Wilson's muff at the plate was a broad
side Into Olant hope.
From the Red Sox viewpoint, Tes

to beat them and 8ta.nl believes that
O'Brien. Wood and Collins will be there
In the next three starts. Neither club
hss shown anything resembling the
pitching or the general stuff which fea
tured the first five games last fall.
This goes, except In the batting. In
their two games the Olants have
combed Boston's premier twlrlers for
nineteen hits, totaling- twenty-seven
bases. Against Bender and Coombs last
fall In their first two starts they made
nine hits for ten bases and but three
runs against nine scored to date.
Both clubs are hitting tho ball, hing

courage under Are only .a single run
was cleanly earned.
Through the entire fight Matty's sun
port cracked around him while he
swung on grimly and gamely, flghtlne;,
planning, hustling and staving off de
feat by a combination or brains and
heart where, a pitcher .with far more
physical stuff might have, crumpled up
and surrendered the contest.
And yet there were others who rallied
behind the veteran and fought with
the courage that braves disaster, Lead

and, almost, unaided drove Stahl's two

far weaker pitching by more consistent,
surer and swifter support.
Wagner, especially, plajwd brilliantly
at short, where New York wss weakest.
With the two shortstops switched the
score would have been about 8 to 0.
In tho tenth round Doyle dished a play
that only a great ball player could have
put across. Speaker's far-driven triplii
and Wilson's muff at the plate had tied
the score. With only one out, Lewis
then doubled, and Matty was pitching
with hla back against -the wall, Gard
ner followed with a crack to right, and
the game looked to be over and Mi
series gone for good. But Doyle, whlil
ing for the drive at top speed, made one
desperate lunge, nailed the ball with
one paw, and then by a startling throw
out of position, whipped It to Merkle In
time to save tho day and put his pals
back In the fight.

on safely. New York would have) lost
a heart-breaking game, and the aeries
would have closed by Saturday night

The first team which settles down tu
a normal every-day stride should ln
this series and win It hands down. No
