NEW YORK GIANTS
COP WORLD TITLI
Deciding Ciame of Series Won by Mat

Blae of Glory.
New York, Oct. 13.-World chain
-pions, 1921-the ;New York Nationa
1eague 3aseball club.
The Giants won the title, wlic
will bo theirs for the next year, bI
defeating the Yankees4 in the eight
game of the world ,*,eries at the Pol
groun(18 today. The American leagu
cliampions died fighting hard in
classic twirling (lljl between thei(
pitch.i1ng act, WNaite 'lloyt, and Ar
Nchf, the Gflants' star left 'hander
'However, they lacked the necessar;
punch to win, the National loagu
team taking the game by the score o
I to 0 and the series, flive games t
three.
The Giants' victory gives Manage
John J. McGraw his second world'
championship leam. The New Yorl
,Ntionals, seven times pennant winl
ners under McGrar.v's management
captured the world's series agains
the Athletics of the Ameican leagu
in 1905, Ibut, although winning th(
bunting live times sin'ce they hav<
been baffled every time until this yea
in their quest for world honors, twic(
'bowin-g to the Athletics, once to th<
'Red Sox and once to .the White So:
in otqher comlats. This year with i
National league entrant that ha.
shown its high class by coming fron
behind late in the penant race am
'heating the tPittsburg Pirates to th(
flag, the world's series told a differen
story. Off to a poor start througli
their loss of the first two games o
the series, the Giants gamely cam(
back, speedily evened up the serlea
and then, with hut a slight let ui
while getting their second hwind
rounded into the stretch with a rus
-and pushed through with thre<
straight victories to their finl. tri
umph. In every victory, except to
day's, they came from behind to win
Thus one of the best and most hotl:
gontested series in the history of ti
sport was won clearly, and, in th(
final analysis, decisively, by a clul
whose gameness and all around abil
ity of the highest grade will be gel
crously conceded.
As for the underlying reason fo
the success of th AMcGraw men thi
experts may differ, but there seem
little cause to doubt that the inos
'widely ipropounded opinion will b<
that it nyas because of a preponder
ance of high class pitching ability
The series showed but two of Man
ager fliggins' twirlers capable o
pitching winning hall-Mays an
Hloyt-while the Giants put forwar<
a trio of master workmen in Doug
las, Barnes and Nehf.
Outhit by the Giants in nearl:
every game und by many points ft
the series as a whole, the Yankee,
none the less made a hard fight o
it by their smartness in manufactur
ing runs out of scant material an1
the superb work done by 'Mays ani
Hoyt in six of the eight battles. Thei

wrorters were tendlering condolence:
over the loss of the series with con
gratulations upon the showing thi
Yankee players hiad mnade in the firs
