Tame Attack in Ninth, Coupled With Poor

Series?Josh Devore s Great Catch
BY TY COBB.
(Copyright, 191a, by the Philadelphia Press Co.)
Boston, Mass., October 10.?Cool and cako?
la ting throughout, seemingly making each hall per* <
form a certain mission, Rube Marquard, the Giants*
sensational southpaw, triumphed over the Boston
Red Sox here this afternoon, New York wmnins;
the second completed game of the 191s World's'
Series, 2 to 1.
This game ended in the most sensations!
manner. Marquard s wonderful work on the mound
can be gathered from the fact that from the first inning he never
wavered in the slightest right through until the ninth. He kept
the Red Sox absolutely helpless, seeming to outfigure them at every
turn, Stahl's men failing to -get further than second base in the j
first eight innings .... ?
Mnrquard's curve wee breaking tat
grand fashion aad be had remarkable
control, bending the ball right where
he wanted It, and from the action*
of the Red Sox batter*, be crossed
them time after time. They were ab?
solutely helpless until the ninth, when
they made the game Interesting for
the tall lefthander, after bis defense
had wavered. That came near giving
Beaton the relay In this last thrilling
period. Marquard of to-day's game
In the lilt series wan an entirely dif?
ferent Marquard from ths southpaw

kis batters, aad just simply rolled on
bis speed and curves to nail him
through. To-day be was calm aad
calculating, taking lots of time with
every pitch,, seeming to sfbdy each
batsman after every ball be pltehed
Then with the greatest precision - be
would deliver the ball as be had de?
cided upon From the rest of this
story oae can gather something of the
effectiveness of Marquard when they
realise that the Sox only gathered five
bits in the first sight innings ejsa no
two In one Inning. He fanned six
His control wan superb, only passing
one man and that with two down.
Too much praise cannot be given
Marquard for hie sensational work
in to-day's game aad the nerve he
showed all through this exciting game.
He deserves much credit for his
work in the ninth, when his defense
wavered badly and came near throw?

retire the last man of the Bed Sex,
when, with two down, aad Henrickson
