New York, Oct. 8. The Boston Ameri
cans overcame tno ricw orn jsauonais
by a score of I to 3 to-day before moro
khan "5,000 people In the first gamo of the
vnrld series. The contest was nip nnd
tuck nil the way. The Olants made ii
hrllllng rally In the ninth Inning when
khey marly tied the score, hut "Smoky"
Joe Wood's bewildering speed turned two
!lant batters back to thu bench on strikes
lor the last two put outs and tho Red
Ib'ox carried off tho honors.
When victory perched on the banners
nf tho Hod Sox host the Boston delega
tion marched across the Held and Mayor
"Mtssgernld of Boston, who was a guest of
Mayor Gaynor, led In the cheers for tho
players of both teams. Governor Eugene
Irof-s of Massachusetts and Governor
iTener of Pennsylvania saw tho contest.
Barely, If ever, has any world series
provided such a dramatic finish. Two
iinn behind, the Olants supporters had
I (riven up hope. Hundreds were leaving
the stands when Merkle sent a single
whistling to the outfield after one man
I was out. Even then tho chance, of tying
Ithe score seemed remnto but a Texas
leaguer by Ilerzog, followed quickly by
smoking hit by tho Indian Meyers,
which sent Merkbi home, put the stands
lln a flame of excitement.

It was a battle of managerial wits In

Manager StaM placed his star pltchor,

Innings was the Beii Sox moundsman hit
hard nnd his dazzling speed continued
undiminished until the last rann had
struck out. Wood fanned 11 batters. lie
Citvo only two bases on halls.
(HANTS FIRST TO SCORE.
The Olants were the llrst to edge their
way Into the run column. Wood held
them scoreless until the third Inning,
when, after Tesreau had fanned, Devoro
worked tin; Bed Sox hoxman for a baso
on balls. Doyle put up a high fly to
left which fell too far back for either
Gardner or Wagner to reach. Doyle
rn hrd second on the hit, but Devore
was held at third. TVien Murray proved
the Giants' hero of the day. This play
er, who went hltless through last year's
wot hi series, caught one of Wood's In
shoots and cnt the ball skimming over
feeouil for a single and brought Devoro
an I Doylu over tho plate.
Tesieau was mighty until the sixth In

his Mulck-brcnklng, moist ball before tho
llrst hit was made, That was a long
drive for three bases by Trls Speaker,
who cHino home for the first run for
the Amirican league champions on an
Infield nut by Duffy Lewis.
The seventh Inning saw Ihn end of
Tesn an. Three singles and u double

to see that tiie Bostons had lit last
nl-fil Tesieau's delivery. Wagner start

scampered over tho rubber. With a lead
of two runs the Giants had to tako tho
offensive nnd nobly they responded with
their ninth Inning rally which failed by
a run of tying tho score.
"Wo won, as I thought wo would, hut

Manager McGraw, "nnd while we would

The Athletics were defeated tho llrst

they captured the title of champions."
BusIneBi came to a standstill in the
financial district when the game waB In
progress. Crowds on the stock exchange
and In brokerage houses forsook the stock

the game. Scores of bankers took a holi

For New York "Larry" Doyle shone
with his usual brilliancy. Ho had two
hits In four trips to tho platct one
of them being for two bases. He was
all over tho field and nothing got past
him. Ilerzog also was very much in
tho game, getting two hits nnd help

ONLY' ONE ATTEMPTED TO STEAL
But one attempt was made to steal
a base nnd that came In the second
Inning, when after reaching first base
on a force, Stahl started down and
was Hugged by Meyers with a perfect
throw to Doyle.
Dcsplto the nervousness of the two
teams there, were but two mlsplays.
These were committed by Wagner and
Fletcher, tho two short stops falling
down on easy grounders, no doubt due
to their anxiety to got the ball across
Seventeen men struck out during
the game, For New Y'ork Fletcher fell
a victim three times to Wood's "smoke"
bull. Tesreau fanned twice nnd De
vore, Snodgrass, Merkle, Ilerzog, Mey
ers and Crandall each struck out once.
Jako' Stahl went out twice on strikes
as did also Third Baseman Gardner.
Hooper and Speaker struck out once.
The umpiring was of the highest order.
There was no disputing Klem's work on
halls nnd strikes and Evans had no trou
ble In deciding the plays on the bases.
O'Loughlln and Blgler had nothing to do.
When all the preliminary conferences
had been concluded and tho photograph
ers had taken pictures of the rival players
singly and In groups the players took
their positions amid a storm of cheers.
Mayor Onynor threw out the first ball
which Meyers caught. Umpire Klem
threw up both arms and Indicated that
the game was on.
TESREAU PASSES FIRST MAN.
Tesreau, one of tho biggest men on the
ball field to-day looked every Inch a
Giant ns he hurled the first ball to the
plate and Klem called It a ball. Hooper,
tho first Red Sox batter, waited out the
string and was rewarded with a base on
balls. Ho took second and third on
Yorkes's and Spcnker's outs, both of
which were fast grounders, and was left
on the paths when Lewis sent a fly to
Wood got his "smoke" ball right at tho
Jump when Devore, tho first New Yorker,
stepped to the plato nnd struck out.
Doylo reached AVond's pitching but he
shot a grounder right Into the' waiting
paws of "Heine" Wagner, who threw tho
Now York captain out nt first. Snod

got Its first batter on first, through

swiftly and threw Gardner out nt sec

steal. Wagner was given his base on
balls nnd Cndy followed by sending a
nigh fly to Murray.
Theru was very little action In Now

NEW YORK'S BIGGEST INNINQ,
Now York's biggest Inning of the gnme
did not open auspiciously. Tesreau, tho
first up In tho third, went out on strikes
Devoro had better luck nnd got four balls
nnd n mluutn Inter pulled up at third
baso when Captain Doylo put up a high
ny mat guvn him two hoses. Wood ap
penred to he wenkenlng. hut ho stuck
gamely nt his task nnd fooled Snodgrass
Into striking out. The excitement nmong
tho fans nt this tlmn was Intense. Devoro
feinted to go homo, but Wood paid no
attention to him. Murray singled to
renter Held, bringing both Devoro nnd
Doylo home with the first runs of the
KHme. Speaker threw home to head off
Doyle at the plate but ho was too late
nnd Murray, In trying to tako second on
tho throw In, was thrown out by Cody
ending the Inning. Murray was wildly
cheered by tho crowd n-l ho walked out
to right field.
It was one, two, three for the Boston!
In their fourth Inning. Tesreau was now
pitching In fine form. Gardner fouled to
Herzog, atahl struck out and Wagner
sent up a foul to Merkle.
For New York, Merkle opened the In
ning by fanning. Itenog lifted a single

Meyers's weak grounder that Wood got
nnd shot over fo Stahl ahead of the In
dian. Fletcher struck out for the second
Tho fifth Inning was alio barren of
results, tho pitching of tho "two slab
men being of the highest quality. Cody

rolled an easy grounder to Merkle that
tho latter scooped up and touched tho
bng nnd Hooper fell n victim to strikes.
GARDNER NAT LB DOYILE.
Tesreau, the first man up for New
York, was compelled to tako off his cap
to acknowledge the cheers of the crowd
ns he came to bat In tho fifth. He.
struck out. Devoro sent a high one to
Lewis nnd "Ijirry" Doyle again brought
the stands to their feot by shooting n
slnglo over third which Gardner knock

good ball and then drove It to deep

was thought by some that Stahl had

the official scorers agreed that tho

a fly to Wagner.
TESREAU DRIVEN TO BENCH.
Then came tho big Beventh Inning
when Boston forged to the front ns al
ready told by scoring three runs nnd
driving Tesreau from the box. The
New York rooters shouted for their
favorites to start something In tho
seventh but the National Leaguers
were unequal to tho occasion. Herzog
caused a groan when he struck out.

dramatic climax when the Giants made
a run nnd failed to win on what pro
mised to be a successful rally.
It was learned to-night that Wagner,
tho Boston shortstop, hurt his hand when
Murray slid into second tind was touched
out by Wagner In the third inning. Wag

Boston, Oct. 9. The second contest of

American Leaguers and tho New York

to the battle that kept 30,000 spectators
on tho edge of keenest excitement
throughout every Inning. Tho contest
will bo ployed over to-morrow nt Fenway
With one victory registered for the Red
Sox, Mnnager McGraw sent out hlrt star
twirler Mnthewson to capture the second
game for the Giants. Mnthewson bad
been rested for nbout two weeks to win
the llrst game he pitched, but to-night the
Red Sox still gloated over their one vic
tory and no game lost, with the dreaded
Mathewson worn out with a hard pitched
11-lnning tie game.
Trls Speaker, the Red Sox middle field
er, furnished the drnmatlc climax tu the
contest where fortune played fickle favor
with first one nnd then tin? other team.
The ninth Inning found the Red Sox
and tho Giants locked lr. n tie score of j
to 0. The Red Sox left hander, Collins,
hnd been driven from the box In tho
eighth Inning by a shower of hits and
Hall had been sent to relievo him. Mer

10th Inning and the home club host was
in gloom when he scored on a sacrlllco
SPEAKER SCORES ON TRIPLE.
In the fading light It wns difficult for
th" Red Sox to follow the course ot
Mnthewson's big drop nnd New York
flt confident. Yerkes had been turned
bark to the bench nnd th big crowd
looked to Speaker. The trio of Giants
outer gardeners moved far afield.
Mathewson wound up and sent a
fast Inshoot up to the plate.
Speaker gave a wicked swing nnd
the hall was hurtling far over Becker's
head In center. Speaker rounded first
then second and rnced to third. The ball
caromed from the hack fence ond Beck
er seized It nnd thrrw to Sharer, who
Juggled It. Speaker hesitated at third
then sped for the plate nnd slid under
Catcher Wilson, who Juggled Shafer's
relay throw. That tied tho score and
the crowd went wild. To make sure
that he hnd touched tho plate Speaker
returned and touched the plate a second
time before Wilson recovered the Kill.
Red Sox fans were not loath to-night
to give the Glnnts credit for n gamo light.
The Bostons took the Jump in the first
Inning nnd scored three runs by hitting
Mathewson hard but the Giants undis
mayed fought back and by peppcrliu
away nt Colllns'B delivery, picked up a
run In tho second and another In the
fourth Inning. Boston tallied another
score In the ilfth Inning, but New York
wns not to be denied and when Duffy
Lewis dropped Snodgrass's fly, opening
the eighth Inning, they started u butting
bee that caused Manager Stahl to hurry
Hall to Colllns'B relief. Three runs wero
nlrendy over the plntc on nn error, a
slnglo nnd two doubles, which gave New
York n lend of one run. The Giants held
their lead hut a moment, for the Red
Sox nttneked Mnthewson s drop curves
savagely, and coupled with an error by
Fletcher the tying run wns sent over the
plate. Then enme the exciting 10th with
Merklo's hit nnd Speaker's mighty smash
to the center Held fence.
Fletcher wns broken-hearted to
night over bis poor game at short stop
for New York. Two of his three glar
ing errors a! led materially In the mak
ing of runs for thj Red Sox,
Wngner starrod nt short stop for
Boston, ncceptlng ten chnnres nnd ex

Inning when on the dead run he spear
ed Fletcher s grounuar witn ,us gloved
hand, turned and with a rlflo shot

nnlled Fletcher at first base.
There was an unusunl bit of bnse
running In the game, for n world series
contest, five I'M" lPlg Pllfero.1. Of
these Hooper stole two and Stnal one
for the Bed Sox, while Snodgrass an. I
Iferzog each bent Carrlgan's throws.
Hooper, for tho Red Sox, had a Held
day. He knocked out three hits, stole
two bos. score.! onco and gathered In

"We have stopped tho Red Sox on their
homo grounds," said Mnnager McGrnw
to-night, "and the team Is very well
satisfied. We have shown that the Glnnts
were game and that gameness Is going
to count n great deal more before the
series Is over."
"The Red Sox have always felt that
Mathewson was the one mnn they had
to beat," said Manager "Jake" Stahl to
nlght. "I think to-day's game, while It
did not end In a victory, shows that wo
can hit the New York twirler, whose
work to-day must hnve tired him out."
There was Just ns much ceremony In
starting the game to-day ns thero was
In New York yesterday, with tho added
feature of several hundred Red Sox
rooteis marching Into the ground be
hind a brass hand playing a lively
march. The "Rah, Rnh. Rah" of the
loyal supporters of tho American
League champions echoed back and
forth as the home team took the field.
1'niplre "Silk" OTrfnighlln announced
that a ball that went Into tho small tem
porary stand that extended along the
left field bank would count for a two
base hit, and a drive Into the stands
in center nnd right Held would po for
a home run.
Manager "Jake" Stahl having elected
to send In Bay Collins, a left bander, to
do the twirling, the make up of tho
Giants hatting older was In doubt until
the visiting players actually took their
turns at bat. Snodgrass proved to bo
the llrst man up.
COLLINS CKTS OUT OK HOLE.
There was a cheer when Collins served
up the first strike and on the next ball
pitched the. New York outfleldor hoisted
a long hit Into the left field bleachers
for two bases. This put Collins In a hole
right at the start, but he was right on
his task and turned Captain Doylo back
to the bench as his first strike out vic
tim. Doyle had tried hard to put Snod
grass at third but Colllns's curves fool
ed him. Becker, who went Into tho game
because Devore does not take kindly to
left hand pitching, was an easy out.

third. Murray also failed to reach first,
ending tho Inning by hitting a weak
grounder to Collins, who tossed tho ball
FI II K WORKS FIRST INNING.
The llrst fireworks In the game were
set off Immediately Boston came to bat.
Hooper opened with an Infield hit to
Mathewson and beat "Matty's" throw to
first by hard splinting. The Boston fans
started to cheer and the volume Increased
to a tumult when Hooper outguessed
Mathewson and stole second, Meyer's
throw being a little wide. Fletcher then
made his llrst error, "mulling Yerkes's
liner. Trls Speaker came to time with a
I tint which Mathewson failed to field
and let It run along toward third bnse,
Hooper and Yerkes moving up.
Then the Bed Sox rooters rose in all tho
stands and called upon Lewis to "hit 'er
out," hut the best he could do was to
drive a bounder to Herzog, who flashed
the ball to Meyers at tho plate forcing
Hooper. Gardner hit one through the
pitcher's box which Mathewson could not
bold and Doyle, running In, scooped up
the ball and threw Gardner out, while
Yerkes came across the platu with the.
first run of the gnmo.
Breaking Into the run column gave
Jake Stahl confidence nnd he swung
viciously at one of Mathewson's out
curves nnd drove It to left flold for
a single, sending homo Speaker nnd
Lewis. Doyle took Wngner's high flye
ending the Inning. This three-run
lend looked extremely good to tho Red
Sox rooters nnd they snng whllo the
GARDNER HIT IN FACE.
New York plnyers did not nppear to
mind tho lead nnd several of them pat
ted Morkle on tho back as ho went
to lint. Collins, however, did not give
him n chance to distinguish himself,
for he struck him out on three pitched
balls. Ilerzog waited, nnd with two
balls and two strikes on him, drove
a smashing threo-bnso hit to right
center field and crossed the plate a
minute later when Meyers's laced out
a single which struck Gardner In the
fare. Fletcher put up n high fly to
Hooper and Mathewson forced Meyers
nt second, Yerkes lo Wngner. ending
For Boston In the second Inning
Cnrrlgan went out, Ilerzog to Merkle.
