nnd expresaes the bellef that the
eventual result wlll be to hla llklng.
What he partlculsrly llked ln to-day's
came was the gameness of the team
ln comlng from behlnd after the dla
heartenlng start. He sald:
"We have stopped the Red Sox on
thelr home grounds, and the team Is
well satlafled. We hava ahown that
the Giants are game, and that game
nesa ls going to count a great deal
niora before the series ls over."
Jake Stahl, the leader of the Red
Scx. expressed the opinion that, wlth
Mathewson out of the way. the rest
of the series would be iess difficult for
hls men. Apparently he regarda
Matty as the backbone of the Giants.
He sald:
"The Red Sox have alwaya felt that
Mathewson was the one man they had
beat. I thlnk tne game to-day, whlle
It dld not end ln a vlctory, showa that
we can hlt the New York twlrier,
whose work must have tlred hlm out."
and even by noontime it seemed scarccly
posslble that all the seats would be titken.
Crowd Late at tba Field.
Tbe bleacher* at thls time were not
nearly fllled. while the reserved seats of
the one-decker etands were decorated only
wlth peanut venders nnd others of thelr
llk. Big stands were speclally ec_nstr_cte_
for the gamea one ln left fleld, whlch waa
reaerved, and another in rlght field, whlch
served to connect the 50 cent and 25 eent
seata of ordlnary games. The entlre fleld
was encircled by a fence, and along the
back of left fleld there weie flve tlrrs of
seata aecommodatlng about a thousand
These were empty until Just before the
game started, and many were wondertn-r
at the cause. When, however. a band ap
peared on the scene led by the renowned
"Nuf Ced" McGreevy lt became apparent
that they were being held for the beneflt
of tbe royal rooters. whose numbers were

The crowd came slowly and when the
flrst of the Red Sox edged on to the fleld
there were barely enough to give them a
good Blzed cheer. Thls was shortly be?
fore 1 o'clock. The Giants were not long
ln followlng thelr opponents and were
greeted wlth seaterlng applause. Most of
those who rootei for New York, and they
were present ln goodly numbers, to Judge
by tha cheers glven Matty, had reserved
aeats and dld not come until Just before
the game started. Hoth \eams changed
thelr unlforms, the New Yorkers appear
lng in their travclllng suits of gray. whlle
the Red 8ox had donned whlte apparel.
The two teame went through a lusty
batting practice, during whlch 3peaker
Lewla, Murray and Merkle dellghtud or
awed the throng. acordlng to the polnt of
vlew. by popping the ball Into the stands
ln all dlrections, as if to get a line on
thingB for future use. They certalnly
gauged the dlrectlon in flne style if the
number of extra baae hits whlch fell to
their lot later may be taken as any cri?
McGraw had his men batting against
Wiltse, suspectlng that to Colllns would
fall the honor of leading the second
charge of the Red Sox. The Giants dld
some faat fleldlng, whlch even the hostlle
fans were forced to applaud.
Just before the game started the
ublqultous Mayor Eltsgerald rolled up to
the home plate in an automoblle lavlshly
decorated wlth floweis. It was the glft of
the "fans" to Jake Stahl. The Mayor took
occasion to make a brlef specch. whlch
was heard by few, but was hlghly appro
priate, Judglng by Um gesturea. At the
same tlme Helnle Wagner received a glft
of a Bllver bat from hls own supporters.
.Aa might be expected, he cam?. up to
the plate flve times during tlu- game and
failed to make a hlt.
Whlle all thia was going on, McGraw
selzed the opportunity to enter into an
earneat consuitation wlth the umpires
over the ground rules. It was decided
that a hlt into the left Held stands was to
go for two bases, while a wallop over the
fence Into centre or right fleld was a
home run. It was also announced that If
a flelder reached over ihe heads of the
crowd to gather ln a long fly lt would
count as a hlt whether or not he cap
tured the sphere. Therefore there was
llttle reason for Murray to rfsk break!ng
hls neck In the game. But hls fall waa
accldentaj, as he was runnlng backwardu
at the tlme, and dld not see the fence.
"811k" O'Loughlln was elected for plcket
duty behlnd the plate, whlle Rlgler was
aent scouting along the bases. Klem waa
ln left fleld and Evans took up hls
arduous dutlea ln rlght.
Game Filled with Errora.
The game, to be sure, was well seasoned
with errors, but here, and there ln ample
numbers were blts of sensatlonal fleldlng
of brllllance rarely seen. On the whole lt
can be stated that the celebrated Boston
outfleld ls not llvlng up to Its reputatlon.
The trlo played ground balls very poorly
to-day and the throwa made were Inaccu
rate. Twice Speaker had Rn opportunity
to catch runners etretchlng doublea into
triplea, but his throws went wide, whlle
Lewls could have caught two men at the
plate lf he had been on hls mettle. To
the two Inflelds helonged the llon's ahare
of the glory.
Fletcher was the weakeBt apot ln the
New York defence, and lf he had played
hls game there would have been a dlffer?
ent etory to tell. Herzog and Doyle
played mlraculously at times Larry act?

the aecond Innlng. Herzog was dcadly on
lnfleld drlbWes, but no more bo than the
old rellable Matty, who had six at-slsts
to hla eredlt.
Whlle Fletcher played poorly, stlll he
made two remarkable ttopa, one on Cerr'
gan ln the fourth and another on Speaker
tn tha fifth. Trla nearly knocked him over
wlth a terrlflc smash, but Fletcher held
on to the ball and tossed to Doyle to
double Yerkes, who was on aecond. If he
had done the aame thlng on a much eafler
chance In the flrat Innlng he would have
aaved three runs. Hooper was on second

Many of the most ardent rooters for tho

plays. Thls haa all been told in a general
way. but tha followlng sequenre of plays
wlll show more clearly why New York
failed to win the second game of tho
world Berles:
First Innlng.
inlllns drew a roar from tl-.e etgntt
when Im spllt the plate wlth the tlrst ball
pltched to Snodgrass. but Fred smaahed
the aecond to the "royal rooters" In tho
left fleld bleachers for a double. and It
was tlme for tho New York rooters to
cheer. Wlth the count two and two Doylo
fanned. but Stiodgraaa took thlrd when
Becker grounded out to Yerkes. Thore
he st.iyod, however, for "Red" Murray
ended the Innlng by groundlng to folllns.
Hooper liad to reuch for Matty's flrat
ball and a hlgh foul rcsulted. but after
mlsslng another lusty swing he drove one
at Matty whlch "Big Slx" did well to
knock down. and lt went for a single.
He a<-on made a clean steal Of second
base, the tlrst larceny of the striea. After
foullng off half a dozen balls Steve Yerkes
hlt a llner down to Fletcher. Hooper waa
far off second base, and wlth a certaln
double play ln ulght Fletcher muffed the
ball. Trls Speaker dld the unexpected
when hc dropped a perfect hunt along the
thlrd l-ai-e llne, and the btM -s were llll.d
A brllllant play hy Ut-rzog, by whlch
Hooper waa forced at the plate on ii
hounder lrom liewls, saved Matty for a
moment, but the alaUghtcr waa only de
layed. Yerkes scored when Larry (Jar.l
ner was out at tlrst, and Speaker led
Lewla over the plato when Stahl ham
mered the ball to left fleld for a slnglo.
Wagner ended the Innlng by popplng out
to Larry Doyle.
Second Inning.
The Glanta took partlal revenge ln their
half of thia Innlng. gettlng a runner home.
Fred Merkle made an lnapsplcloiia open?
ing by Mrlklng out on three pltched balls,
but Herzog trlpled to tho centr.fleld
blencberH. Meyers, the mlghty, almogt
felled Larry Gardner wlth a grounder,
whlch took a bad bound and struck hlm
between the eyes. Herzog rushod home
and Meycra reached Ilrst, hut nothing
further happened, since Matty forced hlm
at aecond.
Hooper doublcd for a sturter ln Bos
ton's half, after Carrlgan had died on a
bounder to Fletchej^ and Colllns Buffered
a almllar fate at the hands of Doyle.
Yerkes awung mlghtlly, but a weak
grounder to Fletcher was hls undolng.
Third Inning.
Only slx battars faced the pitchers ln
thls Innlng. Colllns got Snodgraaa on a
fly to Hooper. Doylo on a foul to Oardner
and Becker on a grounder to Wngner.
Matty frowned upon the mlghty Speak?
er, and Trls grounded to Merkle, who
made a grand Btop and beat the runner
by alldlng Into the bag. Lewls flled to
Murray, and Gardner closed the innlng
by groundlng to Doyle.
Fourth Inning.
The fourth innlng saw the Giants begin
to cllmb. They showed Bigns of solvlng
the dellvery of Colllns and made two
hits. "Red" Murray opened with a trlple,
and after Merkle had died on a foul to
Gardner, Herzog smaahed a long fly
whlch Speaker dragged down a few feet
from the centrefleld atanda, Murray
scorlng easlly on the throw ln. Meyers
drove a single to Wagner, whlch Helnle
dld well to stop, but Fletcher again flled
to Hooper, and tha Innlng was over.
Matty again got the Red Sox ln order.
He struck out Btabt, Induced Wagner to
fly to Murray. and then Carrlgan ground
ed to Fletcher.
Fifth lnning.
It waa short shrlft for the Gianta ln
their half of the flfth. for 4^olIlna was at
hls best. He eurved them over so for
Mathewaon that the latter acarcely aaw
the ball, and repeated the operatlon. to
the dlsguat of Frederlck Snodgraaa.
Larry Doyle wound up by flylng out to
Matty found himself In trouble when
the Red Fox came up to bat and only a
good v'.ny l y Fletcher, hla only meritorl
oub dead up to that tlme. eaved him from
aerlotia troubla. After Colllna had obllg
Ingly struck out Hooper got hls thlrd

throw by Meyera. Yerkes. another "weak
hUter," hammered a triple to deep centre.
and scored Hooper. Trls Hpsaker. on
whom tlie "fana-' called for a "clean-fp
wallop." drove a aavage llner toward left
fleld, on whlch Fletcher made a game
catch, and got Yerkea. who waa hurrylng
home. off thlrd base by ten feat-a flne
double play.
Sixth Innlng.
After Beals Becker had gone out on a
grounder to Yerkes, Murray slngled
sharply to centre fleld, and gave the New
York fans somethlng to howl ahout. Mer?
kle flled out to Speaker, and, wlth Her?
zog wattlng at bat, Murray waa caught
trylng to steal aecond baae.
After Fletcher'a error gave a life to
I^wla Matty got Gardner. Btahl and
Wagner on rolhrs to the box. Before
Stahl was out he raised an easy foul to
Merkle, whlch Fred dropped.
Seventh lnning.
When Herzog came up agaln ln thla
Innlng he shot a single to centre fleld,
and a moment later made a nlce ateal of
second baae. There he remalned, for
Meyera popped to Yerkea. Fletcher to
Stahl, and Matty struck out agaln.
The Red Box made no headway against
Matty ln their half. A flne play, Hersog
to Merkle. told the tale of Carrlgan; Col?
lins atruck out and Captain Doyle took
care of Hooper'a bounclng grounder.
Eighth lnning.
Ray 4'ollina waa knocked out of the box
by the Gianta ln thls frame, and the
Giants took a lead whlch looked to be
sufflcl.nt lo win. and, lndeed. mlght have
proved a wlnnlng lead lf Fletcher had
not put the Red Box ln a poeltlon to cauae
worry. Duffy Lewls atarted the trouble
by dropping a hard drlve by Fred Snod
graas to left fleld. A bhout went up from
the New York bench, and Larry Doyle
went to the bat to do or dle. He smaahed
a single to centre tield, and Snodgrase
took aecond. DoyUi waa foreed at second
by Becker, Snodgraaa golng to third base,
and then Murray once more roae ln the
plnch. wlth a roualng two-bagger that
acored Snodgraaa and placed Becker on
thlrd. Rlght here Stahl decided that Col?
lins waa not the man to win the game,
and Charley Hall, the big Mexlcan, waa
called on to perform hls rescue speclalty.
Charley's flrst effort waa a hugo success,
and he got Merkle on a hlgh foul to Car?
rlgan. Then came Herzog, whose flrst
effort waa a twlatlng foul, whlch Carrlgan
got hla handa on, but could not hold.
Following thla eacape, the New York
thlrd baaemau alammed a two-bagger to

Murray and placed the Giants ln posses
slon of a one-run lead.
Fletcher performed hls arratlc apeclalty
ln th" laat half of the elgbth, and to that
alone do the Boaton men owe the aavlng
graca of a drawn battle. "Matty" dla
miaaed Yerkea on a hlgh fly to Murray,
and alao took care of Speaker's Uttle
bouncer to the box. Duffy Lewls, how?
ever, drove one lnto deep left centre fleld.
and Murray, trylng to make a leaplng
catch, fell over the ralllng and sprawled
lnto the atanda, wheru for a moment he
lay stunned. Tha "fana" plcked hlm up,
cheerlng hls brave effort and Jack went
back to hls place in the fleld. Larry
Gardner then shot one to left that went
through Fletcher, giving tha batter two
baaes, whlle Lewls hurrled home with the
run that tied the score. Larry Doyle got

Ninth Inning.
Hall pulled out of a nasty hole of hls
own digglng ln the nlnth Inning. after
two men were out. He began by gettlng;
Fletcher out of the way, vla ahortatop
to flrst baae, and made Matty pop to
Stahl. Then, auddenly, ha lost the com?
bination and paased Snodgrass, Becker
and Doyle ln a row, wlth Murray comlng
to bat. The beat the Olant rlght flelder
could do waa to roll one down to Wagner,
and Becker waa forced at aecond baae.
Cartlgans llner to tho box, Hall'a pop
to Merkle. and Hooper'fl puny fly to Doyle
told tha atory of Boeton's half of the
Tenth Innlng.
Tiferkle opened the tenth inning wlth
a trlple to deep centre. Herzog shot one
down to Wagner. and Merkle was held on
the far turn. Chief Meyers was lnten
tionally paaaed. but. only a momentary
reaplte was galncd. 81iafer ran for
Meyera, and Harry McCormick, batting
for Fletcher, died on a aacrtflee fly to
Lewie, but Merkle was able to score, and
once more tho hopes of the Giants soared.
Matty was rlotously cheered as he came
up for hls turn at the bat, but he ended
the Innlng by popplng a fly to Yerkes.
Errors. errors everywhere, about da
acrlbes the plight of tbe Giants. Wilson
was behlnd the bat for .New York when
the Red Sox camo up for the tenth Inn?
ing, and Shafer played shortstop. After
Wllaon had thrown out Yerkes, Speaker
tripled to deep left centre. and t>lld home
safely when Wilson dropped the ball at
the plate after a flne relay. Murray to
Shafer to Wilson. That I^wls doubled
a moment later mattered not, for Doyle
made a brilllant play on Gardner, as dld
Herzog on a smash by Stahl. and the sldo
wer retlred, wlth the score again tled.
Eleventh Innlng.
Bedtent replaced Hall tn the box for the
Red Sox In thia Innlng, the prevlouo frame
havlng glven wamlng whlch the wlae
Stahl could not overlook. Bedient got Into
hot water light away. He pltched one a
llttle too close to Snodgrass and Fred took
a slight tip on hls arm and walked to
flrst baae, whlle the Boston "fana" booed.
Larry Doyle. thlrd atrlke wbb rlotously
cheered by the crowd Wlth the count
one and two on Becker, Snodgraaa tried
to eteal aecond baae, but waa caught
eaally on Cariigan's flne throw to the bng.
Beckar alao walked, but he, too, trifled
wlth Blll's arm and died swlftly.
Darkness waa fast descendlng when the
Red Sox came up for thelr turn at bat.
and O'1/oughlln held a hunied ronsulta
tlon wlth Rlgler. The latter was seen to
shake hls head tn the negattve, and the
gama continued. Shafer won hla place
not alone In the heart of McGraw, but in
the hearts of the partlsan "fanB" by mak?
ing a brilllant stop and throw of a wlcked
grounder by Wagner to deep short, and a
few seeonds later he repeated on a fast
bouncer from Carrlgan's bat. Then Her?

Pandemonium Breaks Loose in
the Oarden When Herzog
Goes to the Rescue
with Two-bagger.
Cloae to alx thousand "fans" nearly lost
their reason ln Madlaon Square Garden
yesterday when Charley Herzog harc
rnered out a two-bagger In the elghth
Innlng whlch sent two runnera raclng
over the plate and for the moment put
the Giants ln the lead over the Red Sox
by a score of 5 to 4. The <1lamond was
lacking, the atrlvlng. struggling players
could not be seen, but so truly was every
move of the opposing teams deplcted on
the playograph that atretchlng of the im
aginatlon was hardly necesaary to mako
one think that the game waa spread out*
before him.
The crowd for the most part was made
up of rabid New York "fana," but there;
were enough Boston sympathlxere on hand
to add splce and make the scene even
more reallstlc. The ardent rooters bought
programmes and kept their own aeorer;
they roared their approval when hlui
were made or runs were acored; they
stood up snd stretched ln tha se* -
enth lnning. and they stamped thai-- feet
when occaslon demanded aa If to dlatract
or rattle the Boston pltchers. Altogether
it was a typlcal baaeball croard, and thev
spared themselves not one of the llttle i
ldlosyncrasies whlch go to make up th**.
true baaeball "fan."
The game whlch ended tn a tle acore or
6 to 6 waa crammed ao full ot excltlog1
sltuatlons and tense momants that lt l??r.t
Itself to spontanaous outbursts of wlld.
enthusfasm whlch could not be restralned.
The more raWd "rooters" talked and'
shouted to the players as lf they wera be-'
