If Giants Win To-Day, Grantland Rice Predict* Seven

Neither Team Playing Championship Ball.
R-d Sox Strong on Defense, But Weak
BY GRAN TLAND RICE.
Boston, Mass., October 9.?In a driving,
?torming battle that tore the heart out of 32,000
ans, cracked the nerve system of both ball clubs,
?id leit every one in sight in a half-crazed frenzy,
Boston and New York swept into the edge of dusk
u-iiight to an eleven-inning tie.
The score was 6 to 6 when Silk O'Loughlin
suspended play and called both clubs to meet again
on the same battlefield to-morrow.
Mathewson. pitching his soul out, saw his ball
club crack around him and present the Red Sox
One run they earned from his pitching, and fast fielding would
have thrown even this aside, for every scoring hit was made after
the side should have beeu retired.
The great gap in the Giant defense
fell at short, where Art Fletcher broke
and left a widening; space, through
which five Boston tallies rolled In a
serried tide. It Fletcher had played
only a fair defensive game, accepting
only bis normal chances, liathewsoa
would have won ? to 1. Bat the Giant
short cawed in aad broke as no other
World's Series contender baa ever bro?
ken before, and the Giant fusillade
which drove Collins and Hall from the
box availed naught.

ELEVEN INNINGS OF
Ty Cobb Describes All Details of Wonderful Battle
in Which Marhewson Outstays Three of His ^
Rivals. Cites McGraw"s Mistakes.
?(Copyright, igia, by the Philadelphia Press Cfc.)
Boston, Mass., October 9.?After eleven long
innings of the most sensational play in any World's
Series, with excitement in every one of the period*.'
the second game between the New York Giants and
Boston Red Sox for the 1912 title ended in a tie*
6-6, being called on account of darkness.
The unexpected assault of the Giants batsmej|
upon Ray Collins, the southpaw of the Red See*
surprised many followers of the "dope" and stamped
the New Yorkers as a club that is certainly not easy for a lefthandedj
fighter. Collins was forced to retire in the eighth inning after Mar
ray had smashed a long drive into the left field bleachers for*
ground rule two-bagger.
I On? thing which unsettled the Bom
I ton southpaw and put him into such
! trouhe was an unforgivable muff of a
! line drive from Snodgrasa's bat by
; Lewis, the Sox left fielder. This seemed
i to unnerve Collins, and Doyle imme?
diately singled jver second. MeGraw
surprised every eae by- allowing Becker
to hit. when it looked like a good play
to advance the two runners to third
ana second, respectively, and let Mur
(ray. who had been hitting the ball
very hard, take a chance on talylng
one with a sacrifice or both with a
hit. After Becker had hit to second.
! forcing Diyle. Murray did coma
i through with a smashing drive into
I the left field bleachers for two bases,
j putting Snodgrasa Into the run column
I and Becher on third.
Here Collins was removed from the,
I mound, and Hall took his place. The
latter pitcher got rid of the first Giant
to face hint la easy fashion, musing:
Merkle t? pop ap an easy foul for Car- j
rigaa. But the next butter, Herzog.!
after a battle of wits with Hall and I
fouling high Into the box. where Car-1
rig,? made a sensational try to get It. j
leaning way ever and getting the ball
in the middle of his mit, only to lose !
it becavse h*. waa ?AT his balance, hit j
a smashing drive which bounded into
the left Held bleachers for two bags. I
