here the Red Sox had rushed their

to the eighth game. Pushing the peer

savagely than they ruBhed O'Brien
Monday, the Giants drove Smoky
Joe from the field with the worst
beating he has ever received in hiB
big league career. In the first assault
they ripped his hide off with seven
hits and six runs. Before this fusill
ade of shrapnel and caqnister, Boston
sat stunned and crushed. The impos
sible had happened. The world was
coming to an end. Gibraltar could be
toppled over by human hands, for a
ball club had faced Joe Wood at home
in the best game and shot him to
death within one round. Conceding de

Stahl then derricked Wood to give
him a chance again In today's
