WILLIAM HENRY WRIGHT
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
BOSTON*. Oct. 9.—Eleven innings to a
tie. That is the story of the game to
day between the Giants and Red Sox
a the world's championship.
The second game of the series was a
remarkable exhibition of baseball.
There was sloppy fielding at times
which would have done no credit to a
class B team. Then came periods of
hard hitting and cleahcut work in the
I which was worthy of the two
leading teams in the country.
At the end of the eleventh the score
stood 6" to 6, and as it was then too
dark for good, clean ball, the umpires
called a halt and, under the rules, the
teams stay in Boston tonight and the
third game will be played here tomor
row.
Mathewson and Collins were in the
box. Honors were even between them
up to the eighth inning, when Collins
weakened, giving way to Hall.
if there ever ■was any question
as to Matty's going back. today's game
must have settled it to the satisfaction
of the most skeptical. He was hit
as often as the Boston pitchers,- but
had he been given the support in the
field as Tesreau was yesterday, he
would have won the game with ease.
THREE GIFT Rl.\S
Boston was practically presented
with three runs in the first inning.
Time and again Matty appeared to
have the Red Sox at his mercy, when
fumbles and misplays snatched the vic
tory from them.
Never in any world's series has so
much action been crammed into a short
three hours. Making a tremendous up
hill fight, the Giants won the game
twice, only to have the stubborn Red
Sox cling doggedly to their coat tails.
There was a new hero born every min
ute, but among them all none loomed
1 igper than Mathewson. who stood
y amid the wreck of his collapsing ,
port and twice witnessed a hard
earned load dribble away to nothing.
.Take Stahl used three of his star
• lers, Collins, Hall and Bedient. in
effort to beat the master. That
■ did not do it was responsible to
little Arthur Shafer. who played short
in the last of the eleventh and robbed
"Wagner and Carrigan of hits by mirac- J
ulous fielding.
A crowd of 30.14S fans found a place
In the stands —which were not quite
filled. This was slightly above the num
ber out for the first game in Phila
delphia last year. The total receipts
amounted to $58,369, of which the play
ers receive $31,519.24, the club owners
121.612.54 and the national commission
$5,826.90.
FANS* XERVES FRAZZLED
Toward the end of the sensational
contest the nerves of the players were
wrought up to the breaking' point. As
the Red Sox were taking the field for
the eleventh inning. Speaker and Wag
ner nearly came to blows with Charley
Herzog. The trouble started in the
seventh frame, when the New York
third baseman stole second and was sat
upon rather abruptly by Wagner, who
had his pants torn to shreds in dar
ingly blocking off Xew York base run
ners. Charley Justly complained of
these vigorous methods.
When Speaker made his triple in the
eleventh and was rounding third to
score on Wilson's error, Herzog forced
the center fielder to run around the
bag. This so nettled him that he lost
his temper. The trouble makers were
all then pacified by Larry Doyle, how
ever, and no damage was done.
Sharp fielding would have won the
(Tame for the Giants, but there was
many a heart breaking misplay that
etood In the way of victory for the
Bed Sox. No heroes sprang up like
B overnight to cut up the
multitude of sins committed by their
mates.
ROTTE\ bit of work
It was Duffy Lewis' ghastly muff of
Smidgrass' fly In the eighth that led
to the demise of Ray Collins and the
forging ahead of the Giants. Succes
«»• hits, a single by Doyle and a double
Murray put a run across and two
on the bags. Merkle died easily on a
foul for the second out, leaving every
thing up to Charlie Herzog.
With the count three and two, Her
at' g lifted a high foul near the stands,
which Garrlgan got under in remark
able fashion. The ball dropped In his
upturned glove as he stretched back,
but In recovering his balance the sphere
foil to the ground. With this new
!*-ase of life, Herzog slammed the pel
let into the field temporary stands for
a two base hit. scoring two runs and
putting the Giants In the lead.
A gloom was cast over the entourage
of the Red Sox when Matty retired the
pinch hitting Yerkes and mighty
Speaker at the start of the eighth.
But Duffy Lewis was still to be reck
oned with and he laced the ball into
the left field crowd. Red Murray, who
had shifted positions with Snodgrass
when the sun came out, fell backwards
over the fence in attempting to catch
the ball and at first it was thought he
had broken his neck. All he lost, how
ever, was his cap and his wind and,
cheered by the crowd, he resumed
;ng.
SCORE IS TIED
Lewis was still hovering on second,
and at this Juncture Fletcher let a hard
ball by fiavdner slip through his legs,
scoring Lewis with the tieing run.
Fred Merkle, who opened the tenth
with a triple to right, was the hero of
that frame, as he put the Giants in the
lead again by counting on Mush Mc
cormick's sacrifice fly. But the lead
■**$s not long lived, for with one out
>*> the tenth Speaker sent a terrific
blast to center field which went for
bases, and would have been a
home run had Tris not slowed up at
third.
When he saw Shafer juggle Becker's
return, he darted for the plate and
Wat safe, although Wilson would have

Twirier Matty and Herzog, the
Batting Hero, Tell of Struggle
By CHRISTY MATHEWSON,
Plteher of Giant".
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
BOSTON, Oct. 9.—lt was the hardest ball game I ever went
through fcf my life. In the concluding innings it settled down to a
question of gameness, and the Giants outgamed the Red Sox. Two
men stood out above all Hie rest and showed the fight which kept us
in the battle after some of the other boys had fallen down. These two
were Herzog and Murray.
Stage fright or overanxiety beat us. It did not seem possible that
a man like Fletcher would cave in as he did today, but I attribute it
all to the fact that he lost a double play in the first inning, which would
have given us the game in a walk. That is the point at which Fletcher
lost all confidence in himself.
Without those errors we would have waddled in. The overanxiety
of youth kept us from evening up the series, and the gameness of Her
zog and Murray prevented the Boston Red Sox from making it two
victories to none.
By CHARLEY HERZOG,
Giants' Third Baseman and Oae of the Heroea Yesterday With the Bat.
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
BOSTON, Oct. 9.—There is not a member of the New York team
that does not know now that the Boston team can not win a short
series from us. The series may go six games, but if it does it will be
some other pitcher than Wood who gains a verdict over us. Wood may
pitch two more games against us, from what I have read and heard.
He will start again tomorrow and either Saturday or Monday.
If he does he will be beaten, and beaten decisively.. Wood is a
great pitcher. I can understand just how he made a percentage record
that has never been equaled since Spalding's day. But he is not the sort
of sharp shooter to win more than one game from the Giants.
Muggsy McGraw Feels a Whole
Lot Better; Stahl Undismayed
By JOHN J. McGRAW,
Manager of the Giants.
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
BOSTON, Oct. 9.—Things look better to me tonight. We have hit
the Boston pitching staff, and hit it hard. We should have won the game
today. We. are going out there to win that one tomorrow. I have not yet
made up my mind, but w» will pitch either Tesreau or Marquard.
The way the boys are batting makes me feel much better. Herzog
and Murray deserve lots of credit, while the pitching of Mathewson was
that of the master man. „ . ~ , t , ,
Fletcher happened to have a bad day. He is a high strung player, and
after a hard seasons work he is a little off form. Nevertheless, I look for
i him to do good work in the remaining games. I never blame a man for
making fielding errors. ' The things I do strongly object to m my players
are slow thinking and errors of judgment.
By GARLAND STAHL,
Manager of the Red Sox.
[Special Diipatch to The Call]
BOSTON, Oct. 9.—lt was a hard game to lose. Both teams proved
they were fine'ball clubs, and each is game to the core. I expect, of course,
to win the series, but it is evident that it will be a hard battle. We didn't
expect to have so much trouble with Mathewson. He pitched beautiful ball.
It looks as if it were going to be a hard week on pitchers, with both clubs
batting the way they did today. I expect the Red Sox will outgame the
Giants.

wanting cheers In plenty for the game
New Yorkers; these came as heartily
from the Boston rooters as from
from the Boston rooters and from the
fans who came on from Gotham.
From near and distant towns and
states the visitors came to swell the
big: crowd of 32,000. A party of en
thusiasts in fur coats came down from
Manchester, N. H-, late last night.
These stood In line all night waiting
to purchase tickets, and near them
were a score of students from the
University of Maine. The trains from
Springfield, Mass., and Burlington, Vt.,
were freighted down with fans in
shoals.
Both teams changed their uniforms,
the New Yorkers appearing in their
traveling suits of gray, while the Red
Sox donned white apparel.
BUZZ WAGON FOR STAHL
The two teams went through a lusty
batting practice during which Speaker.
Lewis, Murray and Merkle delighted or
awed the throng, according to the point
of view, by popping the ball into the
stands In all directions as if to get a
line on things for future use. They
certainly gauged the distance in fine
style, If the number of extra base
hits which fell to their lot later may
be taken as any criterion.
Just before the game started Mayor
Fitzgerald rolled up to the home plate
In an automobile lavishly decorated with
flowers. It was the gift of the fans to
Jake Stahl. The mayor took occasion
to make a brief speech, which was heard
by few, but was highly appropriate,
judging by the gestures. At the same
time Henri Wagner received a gift of a
silver bat from his own supporters. As
might have been expected, he came to
the plate five times during the game
and failed to make a hit.
ERRORS IX PLENTY
The game was well seasoned with er
rors, but here and there in ample num
bers were bits of sensational fleldlnc of
brilliance rarely seen. On the whole, it
can be stated that the celebrated Boston
outfield is not living up to its reputa
tion. The trio played ground balls very
poorly today, and the throws made were
inaccurate.
Twice Speaker had an opportunity to
catch runners stretching doubles into
triples, but his throws went wild,
while Lewis could have caught two men
at the plate if he had been on his
mettle.
To the two infields belonged the
lion's share of the glory, and there
was more hitting of the heavy sort
than has been seen in a world's series
for many a year. The Giants made
their 11 hits count for 20 bases, while
the Red Sox made an equal number •
net 19.
Three triples and three doubles fell
to the lot of the visitors, while the
American league champions picked up
two triples and three doubles.
Red Murray is making ample amends
for that no hit record which he com
piled in the set of games with the Ath
letics. Today he hammered out a
triple, a double and a single for a
total of six bases.
Hooper, who has the poorest batting
average of all the members of the Red
Sox, followed up his good work in the
first game by hitting like a fiend today.
The Giants are fighting the Red Sox
tooth and nail every inch of the way.
Without Joe Wood In the box, they do
not appear exceptionally formidable.
The New York manager probably
will give Marquard his trial tomorrow,
saving Tesreau for the game at the
Polo grounds Friday.
Joe Wood may be hurled against the
New Yorkers, but there is a posslbllity
that O'Brien, who is at his best in the
spring and fall, will go out against
the visitors.
Electric Scoreboard
Stirs Up the Fans
With the assistance of the announc
ing of Umpire George Hlldebrand, the
electric diamond at the Alcazar theater
showed the second game of the world's
series yesterday to far better advantage
than on the opening day. Barring some
slight wire trouble in the early Innings,
the fans were able to follow the game
la every detail. There was a large turn
out of baseball enthusiasts, and. as on
the opening day, the excitement was in
tense. Several of the fans became so en
thused when Trls Speaker pounded out
a triple that eventually tied the score
in the tenth inning that big Bill Lange,
who is responsible for the show, was
presented with a bill for a number of
new seats in the showhouse.
With Hildebrand calling the balls and
strikes it was for all the world like an
actual game. There was the same groan
that is heard in the grandstand when a
batter fanned and the same applause
that is pulled off for every brilliant
play. There were cries to take Fletcher
out in the eighth when the Giants had
their rally, and there was more ap
plause when McCormick s*nt out his
lorg sacrifice fly.
The management of the Alcazar is
making arrangements to handle a
larger crowd than ever at today's game.
