Joe Wood, mlghty maglclan and

for the plgmy batB of the Giants, rode
roughshod over the champions of the

Forty thousand "fans" were held sjiell

to Jeer remalned to rlver. It was
Wood's second victory over MrGraw's
men, as well as tht second vlctory of
hls team ln the series. The score was
8 to 1.
That the Giants were able to mak<
nlne hits off hls delivery, one more
than they made tn the flrst game,
tempered the atlng of defeat. They
wre I'ltted against pltchlng the Uke of
whlch they had never fa< ed before. and
their work was not without Its lustre

Wood and Te*r*au Again.
It was a dark. damp day, Just mad
for pitchers who depend on speed and
sharp breaklng curves for thelr ef
fectlveness. For thls reason Wood was
ln hls element, and McGraw plcked
Tesreau, who ls no weakllng at whlp
ping them over the plate, to flght it
out with the Boston maater. Jeff
could not control hls unruly spltball
when he started, and belng forced to
lay rhe sphere over the plata or give a
pass he chose the le?*er evll, and waa
hlt hard by the Red Sox. Wood, on
the contrary, had marvellous control,
and dld not allow a base on balls.
Fast fleldlng of th.- sprightliest nat?
ure kept the vlsltors from running ip
the score, but they possessed a lead
of two runs i n four hits in the first
four Innlngs. Thereafter Tesreau whs
under way and was lnvlnclble, retlr
Ing the side in order ln the next three
frames and striking out four of the
la*t *lx rnen who faced hlm. The exl
gencles of the battle demanded the use
Of a plnch hltter in the seventh. and
Jeff left the game to be aucceeded by
Ames vho also allowed the Red Sox
a nn. on two hits and a pass ln the
ninth Innlng.
Wood was hlt wlth remarkable free?
dom by the Giants, and got into several
tlght places. Flve of thelr nine hits
were bunched ln th? slxth, seventh and
eighth frames; but lt took all of two
slngles and a double ln the seventh
to acore one run. Just about the tlme
tbe Glents got ready to etart aomethlng
Wood would strike out a man or two
