Marquard Is Giants' 6Wy Salvation
JOHNSON THINKS MARQUARD
SHOULD ASCEND MOUND TO
SAVE SERIES FOR GIANTS
Collins Will Probably Be
Opponent of New York
By WAITER JOHNSON.
NEW YOIIK, Oct H.-Rub Marquard
vl tmv ColllnH should be the Ditching
battle tomorrow, and It would not sur-j
prlso me at all to see Collins aereat me
Glunta' southpaw. Unless It li a raw,
chilly day, Collins should provo himself
closer to what the experts figured he
was before this series began, lie Is one
of the steadiest left-handers In the
American League, and, unless tied up
by the cold, should bother the Giants
tomorrow more than ho did last week.
Marquard Is the logical choice of the
Giants for this game here tomorrow,
lie rrtW start, though, wlh one day's
rest less than Collins. This counts for
a lot, too. In a series like this. Stahl
will have Wood wormed up and ready
to ko In In cas of need, but ltlilnk
that the confidence and aggressiveness
of the ned Sox will be enough to carry
Collins through alone.
Since the setles began In New York
last Tuesday Manager Jake Stahl has
Ilcdlent down In the narmlng-up pit
ready In case some pitcher went bad.
Jake did not think that It was good
baseball to send Bedlent In to start one
of the early games of the series.
Bedlent broke Into the series last Wed
nesday when he relieved Hall at the be
ginning of the eleventh and last Inning,
and the following day ho replaced
"Buck" O'Brien at the end of the
eighth. Although only six men faced
him In the two Innings he -pitched. It
cannot be stated that his twirling was
anything; but mediocre. He hit tuo men.
Issued one base on balls and allowed
one hit. After tno such Innings. Jake
must have known that Bedlent had tho
confidence In his own ability, and the
nere to go through and make trouble
i or any team in ine Dusiness.
During the American League season
the players on the circuit would all alt
on the bench and tell vou that this
Ilcdlent did not have anything, but the
majority of them went up to the bat
and either popped to the infield or
fanned, for there were only Tew men
who hit Bedlent' offerings on the nose
nil season. Bcdlent's success as a
tnlrler Is due to tho fact that ho looks
easy to the batters that hi: had balls
and therefore do not get a good hold
of the ball. Bedlent has a nice, fast
ball, but his curve Is very ordinary end
Is usually wlda of the plate. Nothing
ever bothers Bedlent, for he Is even
harder to hit with menon tho bases
than when they are clear.
The Giants went to the bat with the
Idea that they could knock tho ball
out of the lot any time they Baw tit
and: Just as the batters In the American
League, they fell down. The llrst man
up In four of the nine Innings reached
first but MoGraw illd not believe that
Bedlent was capabto of fooling the nrxt
Giant and the hitter was Instructed to
lilt straight away, and with me excep
tion mo Datter railed to move amng
the man on base.
After Murray had walked, Merkle
sent a swinging bunt down tho third
base line and while Gardner was throw
ing him out Murray took second. It
was McGraw's failure to lU've hit men
sncrlltce that lost today's gnmo for the
Bedient Ready to Enter Box
in Case Stahl Needs
hard to put Bedlent up In the air, but
the Bed Sox twlrler remained cool and
seemed moro effective alter the alanU
had started their talk from the bench.
Bedlent's pitching was by far the best
seen in mis series, even Better man
that displayed by Joe Wood or Mar
nuard. He was In serious holes and
there were few balls hit hard off him
and the team naa but few hard
chances. Bedlent had something an
every ball he pitched, and he knew
what ha was doing with every ball ha
threw, pitching a very cool game, from
start to finish.
Hugh was especially effective against
tne men wno nave Deen doing the hit-
ttnn alniiA la.l 'Pit asuau niiaMalH T!
Giants, and It was his utter disregard , snodgraBS. Murray, and Herxog. The"
for the "suicide" play fiat lost him
rrlday's game In New York. McGraw
was expected to "pull" things in this
series that would send tho Bud Box
team crazy trjlng to "dope" out what
was coming off next "lip to the pres
ent he has not shown anything; In fact
neither team 'has shown unythlng out
of the ordinary.
What proved to be the Red Sox win
ning run was sent ovr the rubber when
Larry Doyle nulled i boot on Speakers'
grounder In the third Inning. The ball
took a bad hop and went between Lar
ry's legs, but as errors are Just as much
a part of baseball as the bats, the real
cause of the loss of the game reverts
back to McGraw on account of his
failure to sacrifice.
Snodgrass had a run In with the crowd
In center field before tho game and the
entire bleachers "booed" him during
the entire game and this greatly affect
ed his batting, for no man Is capable
of doing his best when the crowd Is
"tiding" him as they did Snodgrnss to
day. The game was not as spectacular as
the others of the series, but It was an
Interesting one from the spectacular
point of lew. Both pitchers had lino
control and very few balls were pitched.
The Bed Sox hit the ball hard during
the whole game, but were unfortunate
In driving them directly at ome fielder.
Every time that Harry Hooper has
faced Mat how son, he has hit the fa
mous pitcher hard and safe and today
was no exception. "Hoop" came
through with a single and a triple, both
last named two popped up weak Infield
lllcs. three of the four times they went
to bat. and lin made Snodgrass look
like a "busher." At the finish the,
number of hits made by the Giants
totaled to but three. The wonderful ef-ficthenc-M
of Mathewson was that ha
hud absolutely perfect control at all
limes, and that he continually out
guessed the Bed Sox batters. The two
triples which broke up the game were
made off Matty's fast ball, but after
that he did not put his speed across
the plate. He kept his curve In tho
right place, and could neither break
u hook across tne ruDDer or outside.
Many times ho put tin Bed Sox In a
hole by shooting up a curve on the first
ball. Matty used fine Judgment on
Gardner, breaking his curve at the bat
ter ond low, while when Lewis and
Stahl were up he broke the curve on
the outside corner of the plate and
about knee high, with the result that
neither of these men hit the ball past
the Infield. With Speaker up. he used a
During the last Ave Innings Just three
men went to bat In each Inning, but
every Bed Sox batter with the excep
tion of Wagner, who struck out In the
fourth, hit the ball. Mathewson put tho
ball over at the right time, and when
tho Sox thought he wai going to put It
across he "crossed" them and broke It
out or on the Inside. The Giants, aside
from Doyle s trror, gave Matty won
of which were solid drives. Mathewson ilerful support and cut down many
has always made the mistake of pitch- drives that were labeled hits
Inc Hooper high balls on the outside. Bnv Collins and Rube Marquard -will
for Hooper's weakness Is a low ball battle at the Polo Grounds Mondat uft
and high ones on the Inside. ' ornoon, and the Giants arc confident
McGraw and his tribe got a trifle too that they will be back In Boston next
noisy for "Silk" O'Loughlln. and he put Tuesday doing business at the Fenway
a quietus on them. The Giants tried Turk.
AT LAUREL TRACK
Scratching of The Welkin

fident. As In his palmy days, the old
fellow took the track at the rise of the
barrier and set a merry pace. In the
stretch he was challenged by Amalfl,
and though he struggled gallantly, was
compelled to succumb to his younger
and fresher rival. It was youth against
old age, and. as usual, youth tri
umphed. It Is probable Superstition
has seen his best days.
Johnny Pangle, whose Grovcnor won
tho opening race of the afternoon, was
a happy man yesterday. In addition to
tne victory or ms gooa con, ne was
felicitating himself on the news thut a
daughter had been born to the house of
Charlie Hayes, one of the best-known
of the old guard of bookmakers, died
yesterday In Philadelphia as tho result
of an operation. Mr. Hayes was noted
for his quiet manners and politeness
and was much esteemed by the public
and his fellows. His last appearance on

Gun Cotton, which looked Just a trifle
out of place in a H.MO stake
Mr. Dldn Kerr, who had the mount
on the winner, rode a well-judged race.
Ho allowed Idle Michael and Black
Bridge to race themselves to death n
front and then came on and ran over
them at the end Idle Michael was,
perhaps, the best horse In tho race,
hut his chances were ruined br Mr.
Glasscock'B weird ride. Bob Taylor
brought Shannon River up with a
rush at the end and got second money
for Colonel Parr.
The day was full of surprises and up
sets. Not one favorite won during tho
afternoon, and the talent was badly
worsted. There were Borne reversals
that caused much comment, and. In
general, the afternoon woe not at all Ailpms Express,
satisfactory to the wise brigade.
Hedge's performance In the all-ages
handicap was an eye-opener. This filly
won one of the fnstest races of the
meeting, running tho mile and a six
teenth In 1M1 2-5, the first mile In
1 37 1-5, beating the favorite, Dr. Duen
ner and a classy field. Last Saturday
Hedge, with the came weight up was
beaten by Colonel Ashmeade and
Amalfl, and that day the first mile was
run in 1:39 1-5...
The meeting between Sprite, rrog
legs, and Worth was one of the notable
happenings of tho afternoon. The win
ner, Froglegs, was much the best, and
had something In reserve at the end.
Sprite showed a lot of early speed, but
faded away at the finish. It was whls.

Worth Is rounding to, and ft may bo
that he will get back to his best form

Onn of thu big disappointments of the
