Giants Outbat Rivals
Great power with the bat, however,

Vn why* they won was because they
|?d better pitching, for Joe Bush, the
A?erican League kingpin of the mound,
feg knocked out of the box in the
eighth inning, whereas Arthur Nehf
and Bill Evan, the latter succeeding
Xehf, because a pinch hitter batted j
for him, went strong. The Giants had
no more speed than the Yankees, their
?eiding was not so good; but they had
the Spirit to stick, better pitching and
they Von when Bush weakened in the
t?th inning, after mowing down the
Giants'for seven.
The Yankees outfielded the National
League champions?in steadiness,
??oiigh not in individual brilliancy?
tad they played even, admirable base?
ball, but they could not guard against
tie inability of Joe Bush to hold for
sine innings his fine form of six. The
man to guard against that, or at least
the disaster attending it, if it was to
be guarded-?-?gainst, was Manager Hug
But Huggins, it appeared, failed to

the sharp edge of his speed, or, in any
pent, the trick of holding the Giants
-quite as important ?and took him out
too late, for his hard and well won

The Yankees presented no such ar?

"Rosy" Bill Ryan, the former Holy Cross hurler, who is credited with
the victory of the first game of the world's series, is shown in the cen
ter above. On the left, at the top, is Manager John J. McGraw, of the
Giants, meeting Babe Ruth, and, below, at the left, is shoicn Heinle
Grok, the Giant third baseman, reaching third base in safety in tho
first inning of the contest. In the lower drop of the picture is shotvn
Frank Frisch, whose hit in the eventful eighth frame filled the bases ?
with none out, and, at the right, above, the Fordham lad is shown slid,
ing safely into third base, from where he scored the winning run on a
sacrifice fly by Ross Young.
in the first Inning?for the thirr? out.
Groh and Frisch poked hits through
the itifleld or over the outtfeld in the
first inning-, and a passed ball by
Schartg advanced them, but getting out
of a predicament like that isn't an old
story with the Yanks, and this one
didn't oscillate a nerve in their collec?
tive anatomies.
E. Meusel fouled to Schang and
Young favored Schang with another
one. It was rare pitching then for five in?
nings, but with the Yankees giving more
promise than the Giants of a run. The
second and third innings were fiat, yet
tho Giants' third became slightly
piquant when Groh tripled to left cen?
ter, with two out. Frisch fizzled this
time with a high fly to Ward, who cov?
ered ground like a country doctor.
Between flies and grounders Wardy as?
similated many.
The Yankee? opened the fourth with
a single and the fifth with a single, only
to find Nehf unperturbed. Ruth hit
weakly and forced Dugan hi the fourth
for the first out. Huggins had the
choice here of sacrificing and working
for a single run, 3iot a bad scheme
considering the scarcity of runs. Ruth
is a good bunter, too, but the plan was
to hit away, and he rolled to Frisch.
Bob Meuse! Hits Through Short
A drive from Bob Meusel in tho fifth
was choleric, not to sav vitriolic, and
tore through Bancroft. Dave's ?.??ward
running catch on Bush a few ?innings
before, the best fielding feat of the
game, still was fresh in memory, and
the fans thought lie might work the
miraculous on Meusel's grounder.
And now Huggins turned to the sac?
rifice. Schang bunted and advanced
Meusel. Ward was passed and was
doubled when Scott's lurid liner was
caught by Young?one of the costly
"breaks" for tho Yankees.
The Americans had rich chances in
the sixth and seventh to win. Witt in
the sixth, with one out, tripled into
Meusel's uncozy corner, a drooping
lift Irish tried to catch on the foul
line and played poorly after he missed
it. Dugan hit to Bancroft and went to
second, while Witt was being run down.
Ruth tapped a single over Frisch,
brought in Dugan and went to second
on Young's fumble. Pipp was too eager,
hit at a bad one and rolled to Kelly. As
a rule the Yankees were letting good
ones fit by oftener than they were
hitting at bad ones, and Nehf often put
the first ball over unchallenged. He
pitched a smart game. Arthur did,
wherever he got his inspiration.
The Yankees in the seventh had as
golden a chance as the Giants did in
the eighth, the Giants making more
of theirs. Bob Meusel singled through
the inner expanse and Schang bunted.
Nehf, a bit flustered, threw wide past
Frisch, when a good throw would have
retired Meusel easily. Young, in turn,
fumbled the ball. Result, Meusel on
third, Schang on second, nobody out.
Ward's Fly Scores Meusel
Ward flied to Stengel and Meusel
scored. Scott flied to Stengel and Bush
trundled to Groh. Heinie make a cork?
ing play. He couldn't have headed
: Bush, for the grasser was slow, bo
. he stabbed Schang with a -backward
; thrust. Not very wide awake base
! running on Wally's part.
! Before Bush struck out Irish Meusel
in the sixth he and Klem discussed
whether or not Bush's foot movement
was all right. Joe apparently made a
half balk move with his foot as he
pitched, stepping as much toward first
base as toward the plate. Klem polite?
ly called his attention to it, and Joe,
in rebuttal, illustrated how his step
had been entirely within the law.
Well, be that as it may, Kelly, Sten?
gel and Snyder littered the campus
with hits, more or less soggy, in the
seventh, and Earl Smith was, re?
quisitioned to insert a soporific slam?
to striko for his altars and his fires
and a'few runs. It went to two and
three and Smithy grounded to Scotty
for a double play. A crowd as non
partisan as a crowd could be was on
liand, yet Bush came in for a great
hand when the inning was over.
Banroft Starts Big Rally
Bancroft in the cogent eighth bit to
right at three and two. Ho led off.
Groh also hit to right. Tho arms of
Meusel and Ruth were held in reverent
intense respect by the Giants and
Heinie pitched camp at second. When
Frisch singled to left Heinie pulled
up at that tavern. Which was play?
ing it safe. Good business, too.
And still Bush staye dout there. He
was doin ghis darndest, but the magic
shoot was gone from his fast ball,
Irish Meusel singled, the ball bound
in gover Bush's head and going to
center. Witt, hii arm not ao food,

CHICAGO, Oct. 4.?Eddie Mulligan's
j heavy batting put the American League
j representatives out in front of their
i National League rivals in the first
? game to decide the city championship,
j the White Sox winning 6 to 2. It was
I the thirteenth consecutive victory for
the American Leaguers over tl eir
| rivals.
Mulligan had a perfect day at bat,
? with four hits in as many trips to the
j plate, and he starred also in a brilliant
I double play, by pulling down a line
| drive and doubling a man off first.
The Nationals jumped into the lead
j in the first inning when a walk, a sacri
' fice and a scratch hit past Johnson
;' netted a run.
Percy Jones, who pitched great ball
' against the White Sox last fall re
' placed Aldridge in the eighth but was
hammered hard.

I lead and the Cubs registered their final
i run on a triple by Statz and Hollocher's

Old Grant Rice Had
No Corner on Aerial
Some folks sat at home and took the
world's series out of the air via the
I Tribune radio story, but there were
j others who got it by the aerial route
vithout any receiving apparatus cx
I cept a pair of ears. These happy mor?
tals were the gatemen, conductors,
sweepers and other employees of the
"L" at the 155th Street station who
assembled on the platform and had the
progress of the battle passed ?on to
them by a group of enthusiastic and
dusky negro porters who had climbed
up to the top ofthe big billboard on
a nearby roof, whence they had a view
of the fracas.
Several of the "cullud gen'l'mn" gave
decidedly humorous accounts of the
struggle. They could only overlook one
portion of the field and consequently
they drew on their imaginations for
what was happening in the obscured
area. That made it all tho more in?
teresting, if less official.
Rawlins's Chances Rest
On Heinie's Trick Knee
Before the ?eries started a flock of
unofficial assistant managers tried to
tell John McGraw that the Giants
would be stronger with Frisch on third
and Lucky Johnny Rawlings at second
for the world's champions. Rawlings
was the hero of the last fall classic,
but from the way Heinie Groh started
i in yesterday's pastime Johnnie will
warm the bench throughout this series
j unless Heinie's collapsible knee starts
j doing tricks again. Three hits out of
three times at bat, one blow a triple,
? is considered fairly good hitting for a
j little short felow with a bottle bat.
j Groh was a nimble lad around the
j third sack, too. Looks as if Lucky
? Johnny might not be so lucky this year.
Hagen-Sarazcn Match
To Start Next Friday
The coming match between ?Walter j
Hagen, the British open champion, and
Gene Sarazen, the American open title
holder, has attracted a^ot of comment.
The players will come together before
another Sunday rolls around. They will
play at Pittsburgh on Friday, Octo?
ber 6 and at the Westchester Biltmore
Country Club on the follow-ing day,
Saturday, October 7. Both are ready
and waiting the call to the first tee
Friday morning. Both have played a
lot of golf this summer, but it has
helped rather than hurt them, as there
is not the slightest sign of staleness
in their play.
A number of New Yorkers will
journey to Pittsburgh to see the first
battle, and several Pittsburghers will
return to see the 4inal day's play at
Westchester Biltmore.
Giant Rally
! In 8th Beats
Yankees, 3-2
Rally in the Eighth Inning
Enables McGrawmen to
Overcome an Early Lead
(Continued from page one)
By Grantland Rice
five innings the two pitchers took
almost exclusive charge of the rival
casts. The wireless wave, crackling
merrily on its way to Minnesota, in
| formed the cheering yeomanry of
j Drainerd that Bush was in an unbeat
| able tnood. Once in a while some
| Giant would nick him for a blow, only
j to have him tighten up and scatter
the next assault. He had smoke enough
I to be used on movie location for a
j burning oil well, and his sudden curve
j snapped over the plate round after
! round.
Art Nehf, who had been working
j briskly up to the fifth, came near los
? ing a lot of valuable hide just at the
? turn. Meusel and Ward were on base
with only one man out, when Deacon
? Scott lashed a line drive between right
? and center that for a brief moment
i looked to be on its way to the highly
I decorated fence. It was here that Pep
| Young put his two feet into high,
| stepped on the gas and by a gallant J
i sprint not only killed off a three-base
I hit, but doubled Bob Meusel at second
j base.
Yankee Rally Is Broken
? Meusel, at the crack of the bat, had j
I left for home, leaving a message that
he was not to be disturbed. But Young's
: great catch left him floundering far
1 from port, with the budding rally com?
pletely broken.
The Yankees, hacking away at Nehf,
! finally broke through jn the sixth.
j Whitey Witt, the only living outfielder !
i who ever drop-kicked a pop bottle |
j against his own dome, led off with an j
i important triple, after Bush had ?
1 grounded out. Dugan's infield hit j
; caused Witt's demise at third, but j
I Dugan slipped to second on the play.
I So here we were with two out, a man
Ion, and Babe ( himself? accept no sub?
stitutes) advancing to the plate. Nehf
| had fanned Babe in the first inning
| despite the fact that on this occasion ;
? the Bambino was completely assembled
I and not badly scattered as he was a
j year ago. In this crisis Nehf almost
j had Ruth hooked again with two
i strikes, when the big slugger finally
! bounded one through the infield, scor
? ing Dugan with the opening run.
This lone tally, as the saying goes,
j looked as bulky as Pike's Peak. With
| the way Joe Bush was working it be?
strode that narrow ball game like a
I Colossus, however this may sound. And
j when the Yankees got another in the
1 seventh through Meusel's hit and ?
Nehf's wild peg, the Giants seemed to
be in for as" pleasant an afternoon as a j
Greek traffic cop might enjoy during j
the rush hour in Constantinople.
But it was here the first dull rum- ?
blings, indicating a coming storm, be- ;
gan to drift through the lazy, hazy j
afternoon. The Giants in this inning
filled the bases after Bush had ?
stumbled over an infield hit that
seemed to affect the stone bruise on
his heel. With the bases full McGraw
derricked Nehf and sent Smith up to
bat. Smith socked into a double play,
but it was only by a narrow squeak
that the Yankees had their two-run
lead intact.
Bancroft to the For?
Upon the immediate wake of this
close call Bancroft opened the eighth
with a line single and Heine Groh's
third hit was just as warm and wooly
as Bancroft's had been. There is no
sight in sport like second sight and no
guess that can match the incomparable
safety and certainty of the second
guess. But with this new assault
launched against 3ush after his close
call from the inning before it seems
that Huggins might have decided then
and there to take no further chance
before rushing Wait? Hoyt in.
For HugginB had enough good pitch?
ing left to handle two series. He was
completely surrounded by first-class
pitching that was thoroughly w*nned

both Frisch and Meusel had nicked
JBush for base hits, two runs were al?
ready in and Frisch was dancing up and
down at third with no one out.
it was into this deep and dismal look?
ing grotto that Hoyt was dropped with?
out a chance to stave off sure defeat.
Anything meant a run, and Young's
long fly to center was quite enough to
I send the Giants on ahead to. victory?a
j victory which they earned by a game
i uphill tight and by keeping the sweat
of their brows out of their batting
! eyes as they struck the stretch.
Hoyt after this fanned both Kelly
and Stengel, but the recurring thud of
j the ball into| Wally Schung's waiting
mitt was lost music, completely drowned
by the violent echoes of Giant par
I tisana acclaiming the batting rally that
! had sent the Giants ahead. Nehf was
gone by now, but Rosy Bill Ryan had j
no idea of tossing off that one-run
lead. Rosy Bill had supplanted Nehf in
the eighth and had gotten by nicely,
fanning both Witt and Ruth. As this !
made the second occasion during the |
afternoon some pitcher had fed him
three strikes, the Babe was far from
hilarious as he drifted back to the]
fence. His fame was built on home!
runs, not on strike-outs, so his scowl
was visible as he faded into the dug?
Double Play Ends Rally
The4; Yankees made one last stab for
the disappearing game in the ninth,
when Wally Pipp smote a single. There
was one sharp, short note ot renewed
hope when Bob Meusel followed with a
line drive to right, but this hit fol?
lowed the path of glory that led to the .
grave, for somewhere in its flight it
encountered a gloved hand waved in ',
midair by Frank Frisch, who lost little j
valuable time in tossing the ball to j
Kelly for a blasting double play.
And this double play fell upon the j
Yankees as a wet blanket falls upon a
lighted match. They were still da?ed
through the blighting Bt'termath of I
Bullet Joe's collapse and the sudden ,
revival in Gi?nt batting strength. Yet, i
as the Giants earned three runs cleanly ;
and tii3 Yankees earned but one, no]
lusty roar seems due from the antics [
of fate.
The Yankees lost this first game for!
two reasons, where ordinarily one is i
quite enough.
They lost becauss their star pitcher,
couldn't go the route against the Giant
attack. And they lost again because
their own attack could make no head- |
way against Nehf and Ryan, as one ?
earned might indicate. They were i
badly outbatted, both in quantity and
quality, as the more numerous Giant I
hits carried a cleaner, clearer ring. /
The Yankee defense back of Bush i
was stronger than the Giant defense
back of Nehf, for when the big moment
came now and then the Yankees had no
consistent attack to carry on their run
making art. Although Ruth drove home
one run on a scratch single, the big
boy was shoved back upon his haunches
most of the afternoon. He waved the
old wood with all the power he had, but
Nehf and Ryan had him badly crossed.
Giants Are Confident
The Giants, even when halted in the
early round?, fought back with con?
fident aggression, inserting a number
i of star plays by Groh, Bancroft, Young
'. and Frisch, who saved both Nehf and
Ryan serious trouble on several occa
i sions. McGraw in his first battle
proved that he was more willing to
gamble with fate than Huggins was.
IvIcGraw lost no time in ditching Nehf,
I his star, when a pinch hitter was
needed in the seventh. But Huggins
; delayed the gamble a trifle too long
j when ho permitte?! Bush to remain
until the top of his head had been
I blown away.
As we suggested before, second sight
I r.nd the second guess arc two of the
?greatest institutions in sport. They
I have no equals in the realm of cer
; tainty. Unfortunately, they are both
. barred to those who walk along the
j firing line in the heat of battle. But
i the fact remains that Hoyt might well
I have saved the day, ami those harsh
?critics who sit in judgment from the
! stands seldom look beyond results.
The Yankee cause from one defeat,
j is far from hopeless. Huggins still
i has Shawkey, Hoyt and Mays left for
i the next three games, iwhere McGraw
j must still peer through the fogs day
after day in his search for a winning
sniper. If the Giants had lost the
opener with Nehf in the box their
cause would now be ready for the
adornment of crepe. But they got by
just in time, and so are back in the
series with both feet and a lot of fight.
It meant something to know they could
oertake the Yank's star pitcher as he
was turning for home and leave his
mangled body in the road. But they
??raw a tough customer in Bob Shawkey
for the second battle, and Shawkey
ought to win. The Gob is right this
time, yeanling for the chance tj avenge
his pasting of a year ago, when the
enemy ?aught him with his right arm
in a knot.

McGraw'e warriors, fighting des^er
?tcly ?n the face of odds, triumphed
for trie Little Napoleon in this most
important opening game as they had
triumphed for him in the National
League pennant fight. Once more M<:

when all is said and d.ne, it was just a
b.ill game.
l'he series is young, not even t'*e
i result, of first biood seems so mucii.
The crowd rather than the game vras
the spectacle. The most notable as?
semblage that over gr.-:<*ed our national
?lastime thrilled through the two hours
and more of fervid play. It was *??!; y
becoming a world's championship, save
for one Meeting moment when a double
barreled error by Nehf and You g
.-?eemed to boot away a hard fought ar
?rujnent for the champions of the worl i.
Such a crowd as was there! It
teemed with clasp and culture, it be?
spoke in undeniable argument New
York's proud reputation of sports
: manship. A trifle partisan it may
; have been toward the Yankees whiie
the issue ebbed and flowed without
? result. It seemed that Huggins' team
was the more warmly received and
. that the crowd was pulling for an
' American League victory. But that
fact simply heightened the point at
issue?th3 sportsmanship of Gotham in
ever pulling for the under dog.
? Governors and Others
Three governors, several prospective
governors, a handful of ex-governors??
these were but a few of the notables
who throbbed again to childhood's lov?
as the two greatest teams in the ?vor'.d
i battled for glory and pelf. Futurity
; Day could not duplicate the wealtn of
i social splendor as represented in the
i boxes. The history of baseball finds
| no single incident whero were gathered
; together such financial pillars of the
: fair Republic?yea. of the world, for
' that matter. Thje bankers of the
; United States, in convention In this
1 city assembled, were some of the most
] vociferoi sly profuse in their applause.
] And. like the rank and file of the
I dyed-in-the wool bleacherite fan, all
! were fair and unbiased and unstinted
' in paying valor its due whether valor
radiated from the white homo uni?
forms of a Giant or the visiting gray
j of a Yankee.
Splendid was the crowd and even
! more resplendent Us good natur?*, its
j absolute fairness and keen appr?cia*
' tion of honest effort. It was like turn?
