BOSTON. Mnss., Oct. U. "Tessle," the
battle song of Boston looters which has
been revived for the game btwe-n tin
Braes and Athletics, first became fa
mous In 1M3, when the Boston Bed Sox
and Pittsburgh Pirates plnd for the
world's champlurt-hlp.
Boston lost the first tl ree games to the
riratea and the Boston rooters began
singing "Tessie" constants In cheering
on their team When the fans weren't
singing the band played It. It got on
the nerves of the Pittsburgh pluer to
such an extent that they did everything
possible to stop th singing. They finally
went to pieces and Boston won the series.

Loss of Yesterday's Game
Kind to Take Heart Out
of Any One, Writes Cham
pion Second Sacker. s
"We Still Have Fighting Chance,
and We Are Going to Make
the Most of It," Shows Spirit
of the Team.
BOSTON, Oct. IS The llrst otic wait. I
so bad, the second one hurt consider
ably, but this Inst one good night' s
I said In my previous stories, It doesn t
hurl so much lt lake a good beating, hut
when j'iu have one nit but won and then
they come along nnd take It away from
oil. believe me. this It the kind that Is
liable to take the heart out of some of
the best clubs. There Is no use nf nr
continuing to nppcar optimistic hen
they had us two and nothing that wn
a different story. But now that they have
three challfd up against us there Is tm
use denying wc ore lighting In our 'at
t have played In numerous win Ms
series games nnd have faced many tu
clnl situations, but none that I can r a l
can hold a candle to some of the tense
moments tlmt were necessarily experi
enced In that game of yesterday. Mental
lapses, errors of omlsulon and lost oppor
tunities were numerous enough, and for
me to pick out any one piny that might
hnve turned the tide Is a pretty difficult
Throughout the game one quality which
the Boston team exhibited and whlcii
cannot go tinmentloned by me stoud out
prominently. The everlasting persever
ance and dogqedness with which the
Braves kept after us cannot help but be
udmtred by the most pnrtlsim fan. Fumi
the very onset our club got the .tump.
but It seemed ns though no matter how
much w forged to the front we co ild
not chake off our rivals.
In the very first Inning IMdle Murphv
put u In the running with n prett
double over the third bag. Oldrlng
promptly sacrificed. Tyler to Schmidt,
and, advancing Murphy to third ftoin
whence he .cored when Connolly muffed
the writer's fly. although the chances
are ho would have tallied any way had
not an error bpon committed. After .Mc-
Innls walked, putting myself on second
and "Stuffy" on first, the situation look
ed threatening for the faltering Tyler,
but I am deserving of severe ciltlclsm
for getting pinched off second, ns it
helpr Braves' pitcher out of a tight
Maranvllle staitcd trouble for us In the
very next round, when he worked Bush
for n puss and stole second cleanly. In
splto of the fact that Schong's throw
wa a perfect one and like a rifle shot.
This lapso on the part of Bush In giving
tho Boston players a running start on
the bases aided materially In his event
ual downfall. Gowdy. the enigma In this
series for us so far, was on th" Job as
usual with his big black bat, and his
screaming liner into the left field peats
easily enabled the raobit to legUter the
tying count at the home station.
Beginning our second, Tyler was a more
difficult man for us to fathem. In this
round we didn't threaten at all. and like
wise in the third wo never reached first.
Tho fourth, however, showed us more
to advantage, and we forged to tho front
onco more. With two down, Mclnnls got
hU nrnt hit of the aeries, a corking dou
ble Into tho left Held crowd. Walsh, who
was playing centre in place of Strur.k,
the latter being Incapacitated by a felon
on his left hand, came to time with n
pretty stnlb between Lieal nnd Maran
vllle, and Mclnnls tounted run number
two for us.
We did not hold our advantage long,
as the Braves rarnu right back In their
half and evened tho count again, and
this time, likewise, aftei two raon hid
been retired, Wltn Schmidt on to' ond,
the result of his single and n fielder'J
choice, the lu.'k still clung to the Botton
contlngen when Maranvllle's Texas
leaguer Ml safo in centre, and Schmidt
Jimmy Walsh made a great try for this
ball. slMIng on his stomach to make tne
catch, but It fell Just beyond his reach.
In the fifth, we again threatened, but
that was all. as Murphy was left
stranded on second after his double, when
OWrlng Canned. In their half, Boston
got on- :it ii' on anse, b-it that was all.
Our sixth started off auspiciously. An
apparent lally was nlppul In the bud
when B.iher hit Into a fast double play.
Even to Jlaranvllte to Schmidt. His out
at first was a questionable one to our
way of thinking, as he nppcarecj to have
the ball beaten fully a step.
From this point on until the 10th noth.
Ing much exciting took place, but what
the Intervening Innings lacked In excite,
ment this round In question amply made
up tho difference, and I will venture to
say that populace got their money's
worth in this Inning alone. Wally Schang
began what looked like certain victory
for us with a single to left After Bush
had been retired on strikes, his attempts
at bacrinclng being very Ineffectual, Ed.
die Murphy bounced a sharp one to Tyler,
who temporarily lost his bearing and
made the play to second too late to catch
the fleet Schang, who was stealing on
the pitch, and everybody was safe.
Tyler deflected Oldring's sharp knock
Just enough for Lvers to throw him out
at first, although the other two advanced
on the out.
A walk to me filled the bases and
"Bake" then put us In the van with a
drive too hot for Rvera to handle. Right
here Eddie Murphy showed hU atertnees
b sneaking home cleanly and putting
us two to the goo4 while Evers held the
ball. It looked like we would get a cou.
pie more when Mclnnls lined sharply to
left centre, but Whltted made a good
catch and our scoring was over for the
With only three men tq retire, our
chances looke-d very rosy, but hereupon
that man Gowdy again apppaared upon
the scene The very first ball Bush
seived up to him he put far over Walsh's
htad, and It bounced into toe centre field
seats for the circuit We did not are a
whole lot about this, aa we were still one I
to the good. In fact, when Devore fanned i
we bad almost forgotten Oowdy'i wallop, I
In the upper picture appears Mayor J. M. Curley, of Boston, making his
ager Stallings a golden baseball of the
illustration Lvers is shown stealing
but Moran, however, walked, thanks to a
couple of fine balls which his majesty,
the o-cnlld "best" umplto In the Na
tional Ier Tie, saw fit to call otherwis-e.
Evers foil ,ed this up with a sharp sin
gle to rU..t, which put a man on third
and one on first. Connolly's long fly t
Walsh easily allowed th" diminutive Bos
ton right fielder to score the tying run,
and onco again our seeming advantage
was eclipsed by the perseverance of the
relentless Braes.
Nothing doing for either side In the
eleventh. James having taken up where
Tyler left off nnd Bush still continuing
for us.
In tli,. nth Eddie Murphv again offered
us an opening, but neither myself nor Mc
lnnls was equal to the emergency. Baker
having been walked purposely In the
meantime. It was fast gi-tting dark when
Boston went to bat In Uxlr half, and It
was a cinch that this would be the last
Inning that could posslblv he played.
' Lanky" Gowdy was the first mnn up,
and as It turned out he might Just as
well had been the last, because It la to
him, and to him alone, that tho Braves
owe nine-tenths of their present advan
tage over u. Just as though It were a
habit, he doubled to left.
"Say, for the love of Mike, what can't
you hit?" asked Barry of the toll mask
man .is he smilingly Jogged to second.
"Wo pitch vou curves nnd you straighten
them out, fast ones look like duck soup
ond now you kill n slow ball. What do
you h't during the season?" I overheard
our shortstop ask Gowdy, In tho Interim
that followed, while th board of strategy
got In Its work on the Hoston bench when
Gilbert was sent un to hit In plneo of
I .1 itnes. "Oh, about ,21ft." smilingly re
plied the Jubilant Brave. "Well, I guess
you must have saved all your hits for us.
Judging tho way you are going against
us," was all that Barry could answer."
lt was decided by us to pass Gilbert
Intentionally, which would enable us to
make a farce play at third, as It was al
most a 101 to 1 shot thnt Moran, tho fol
lowing batter, would bunt. Our deduction
of the play was O. K.. but Its execution
n. g., as Bush was Into In getting over
to the third biso line to field Monro's
bunt, nnd his throw, w hieli ought to have
retired Mann, running for Oowdy, at
Baker's station was necessarily hurried
and wild, and as a result game No. 3 was
gone by the board, ns far as tho Athletics
are concerned There Is no good of mak
ing any excuses, oecause the result will
remain uwhanged regardless of what
might hae been.
I am only repeating wnen I say tnat
It was Gondv who was again mainly'
Instrumental In our downfall, and to him
Is due the lion's share of the rrcdlt for
Boston's victory In this world s series .
we have learned what It Is not to get j
the breaks, although I tfuess It U true
of every team that loses to think tnat
sumo way. Bush pitched ft creditable
game, a game wnlch ought to have won i
for him tune tim-s out of ten In the
fielding Hne e again more than held ,
our own, but timely wallops were again i
noticeable by their absence, whereas their i
conspicuousness was only too evident j
among the Braves for our comfort. If
the Braves tan win three straight why
can't we? This Is tho way to look at It.
I gmss I must be a hard loser, because j
even If we should lose tomorrow I would i
never be convinced they are a belter ball
club than oi.rs. Wo have a lighting '
chame left, and you can net that we are
going to make the most of it. and If we
lute we are at least going to have the
Satisfaction thai we died a-flghtlllf.

Will Wade Into Today's
Game With Renewed Con
fidence Stallings, on
Other Hand, Is Certain of
Concluding Victory.
BOSTON, Oct. 13. "Four straight" Is
the Boston slogan today, and Manager
Stalllngi, of tho Braves, In an effuit to
accomplish what never has been accom
plished In a world's series, will send Dick
l Rudolph, his slow-ball, curve-ball pitcher.
I to the mound In tho afternoon's battle
' against the Athletics
Connlo Mnck will nltch "Chief" Bender.
his Indian twirler. nnd the man who was
batted from the mound In the opening
game Friday. Upon the frail shoulders of
Bender rests the Iln.-il hoK of the Atli
lotlcs In their present desperate situation.
Backed agnlnst tho wall closer than
they eer have been In all tho years of
I their wot Id's scries oxpoiletice, the Mack
. men today rallied their scattered fotens
I mid prepared to fight as they never h.ivo
roiignt licforo. The Phlladelphlans are
out for blood and they are out for that
game. And they mean to get them both.
Facing the seemingly hopeless task of
winning four sttalght games to win the
big share of the world's seilcs spoils,
tho Athletics nrc not discouraged. Thev
still havo faith In theni'-Uves, still be
lieve they are superior to their foemen
nnd that they ultimately will triumph.
The Athletics frel at, they long have felt,
that they are Invincible, and they feel,
too, that the lost Saturday's gamo nnd
yesterday's game not because thoy wore
outplayed, but because they were out
The Athletics yesterday lilt at a bet
ter clip than they havo hit since, tho
world's series opened, and they hit
harder nnd oftener than they hit for sev
eral weeks before the American League
sennon ended. That Is one of their rea
sons for confidence, and hope today when
all seems hopeless.
The confidence of the Mackmen. gicat
ni It Is, does not compare, however, with
the Braves today. Their threi. straight
victories over a team that for many years
has been considered tho gicatest welded
together, make the Braves feel that only
a miracle can rob them of tho honor of
winning the baseball championship of the
world. They have hit at a tremendous
clip, they havo fielded In sensational stvlo
throughout, they have run wild on tho
bases against Schang, the greatest throw
ing backstop In the land, and their pitch
ers have outpltchcd the Athletics In
every one of tho three games.
"Why shouldn't we feel confident nnii
happy?" asked Manager Stallings this
mornlnB. "The whole country seemed to
have the Idea before this series began
that my team was a Joko outfit that U
was simply because.it was lucky. I
guess wo have convinced them to the
contrary this time, and convinced them
that tho Boston team, In all-around abil
ity. Is tho superior nf the so-called peer
less Athletics."
Mack may send Jack Lapp behind tho
bat for the Athletics In today's game.
Lapp Is a far better hitter than Schang.
who was chosen for world's series duty
because of his throwing. However,
Schang's throwing to date has been .1
miserable exhibition nnd he may do
bench duty today.
Howeer. the Athleths today aie more
Inclined to blame the umpires for tho lo)
of that game yesterday than themselves
nnd their several errors of brain and
arm. They declare that the twelfth Inn
ing of that game should never have been
ordered to be played, because of tho
darkness, and there Is considerable
weight In tho argument of the M.ickmcu.
When the eleventh inning ended twilight
had settled over the Held. When th elast
half of the twelfth began, it was so dark
that the forms of the outeldcrs were
hardly visible, the bleachers loomed up as
a black mass, and even the Intleldeis
were a blur. When Moran bunted In the
twelfth no one In the stands knew where
the ball went until they saw three Ath
letics running to a spot near third base.
Busn, Baker and Barry ran for the ball
One picked It up, and another ran back
to Ihlrd. From the stands It looked as
If the form that threw the ball was that
of Baker and that Barry was the man
who stood qn the bag waiting to take
the throw to catch Mann running from
second. But, after a debate, the official
scorers decided that It was Hush who
threw the ball, and made the wild heave
that save the Bratea the game. This
was found to be true after the game
was over and Bush was questioned.

Expert Observer Declares
Third Game of Series Was
Magnificent Exhibition on
Each Side.
I BOSTON, Oct. 13,-Boston today threw
I down tho statue of Hnnk Adams nnd set
up that of Hnnk Gowdy, tossed the status
of Johnny Adams Into the bay and Bet
up one of John Evers, and went wild.
Nothing will persuade them now that
nftcr triumphing In the greatest nnd most
exciting gnmo In tho history of the world's
1 scries anything will stop the Brnvcs.
It was the Inst-llno stand of the Ath
letics, who, refusing to withdraw, stood
and gnvo battlo to the charging Braves,
fought them to a standstill, broko their
defense, nnd, rallying desperately, gav
Hoston a tosto of tho real old Athletic
basebnll game. Then broken by the sheer
desperation of the Braves' attack they
wavered, allowed them to tie It up, nnd
In the twelfth Inning, their defenses
breached, they broke and Boston won i
to 4,
I In tho nttnek Hank Gowdy, McfJrnw's
despised cast-off, led, and his terrific
swatting earned Boston Its runs. Three
times he drove the ball over fences Into
tho massed maddened mobs, twice for
two-baggers tinder ground rules, nnd ones
for a homo run,
Jt was great baseball; soul nnd spirit
and courngo ngalnst sheer power nnd
skill, and again spirit won. Never, save
In tho first game of the 1S07 scries, be
tween Chicago and Detroit, has there
been such madness nnd such a breaking,
strain, and never before In n world's
series has there been such an exhibition
of magnificent baseball. Tho teams play
ed wonderful nnd brainy ball, neither
overlooking a chance, although tho do
cldlng moments during the rush and riot
of the final Innings were marked by to
of the most astonishing bono-hcaded
plays over seen.
It was Evers, leader of the Braves, who
had been presented with golden bats, au
tomobiles, watches, etc.. etc.. who made
the worst. It came In tho 10th Inning of
the battle, with the score tied and the
entire scries In tho balance. Tho bases
wcie filled, two were out, und Baker, who
has been a batting Joke, slashed a fierce
bounder between second and first. Evers
made a marvelous try for the ball,
reached It almost choked off a base hit,
but the ball struck him on the shoulder
and fell dead nnd one run went home.
In Bheer excess of despair, Evers
grabbed the ball, held It In his hand and,
without looking toward the plate, allowed
the second runner to scamper home. It
seemed ns If Boston was beaten and
Merkle was avenged. Johnny, the brain
iest of them all, had blundered and al
lowed two runs to count where only one
should hnve blossomed.
The other boner was pulled by Colllm
In the last half of the same Inning, when
Evers, his rival, Was at .bat and deter
mined to retrieve himself for his awful
blunder. Hush was pitching fast balls In
side to Evors and decided to pitch a curve.
Evers wns set to hit, nnd ho drove
herce low bounder right whero Colllnj
should haya been .playing for hlpi with
a curvo being pitched. The hit over
turned and cume near winning It right
for the Braves.
Then enme the first real test of nerve.
Tho teams wero breast to breast In a
bayonet chnrgc. Datkncss was on and
u. tie seemed almost as bad as n defeat
for the Braves. A draw would give the
Athletics a fresh toe-hold. There was
no denying they were playing better ball
and with more spirit thnn they had dla
plaved In the entire series. But when
thev met In the attack. It was the Ath
letics who broke, ond finally It wns Buih
himself who threw away the game by
a dei-palrliig effort to shut off a runner
at third on a bunt.
As far ns generalship goes, the struggle
was oven. Both leaders used excellent
Judgment down to tho last ditch, when
Mack played It out by passing a batter to
Increase by n small percentage the chances
of making a play.
So far ns actual play goes, tho dif
ference between the teams Is tho dif
ference between Schang and Gowdy.
Schang Is catching wretched ball, throw
ing badly and using bad Judgment, al
though he handled Bush's terrific speed
yesterday with more Judgment than he
has shown heretofore. Gowdy Is catch
ing magnlllcently, handling his pitchers
well and tin owing fairly well. His hit
ting, which has been the sensation of
tho series, Is remarkable. Ho Is hlttlnir
all kind of pitching and driving hard
against slow ami fast balls.
Of the Athletics. ery one is going well
save Schung nnd Oldrlng In all depart
ments and Baker nt bat. Baker has been
ti,o irtn nt tin, KP.iKnn. The worst feature
of the Athletics Is that they aro hittinj
at bad balls and In untimely fashion.
Either they aro slipping or Stalllngi
pitchers are outguessing them at every
The generalship yesterdaj was wonder
ful, especially toward the last when the
Athletics were driven back into the de
fensive. After Gowdy, In the twelfth,
smashed tho bnll Into the bleachers for
two bases. Stallings rushed Mann out to
run for Oowdy because of his speed, onl
sent Gilbert up to bat for James, who hi!
been summoned to the slab because a
pinch hitter was sent In for Tler BIS
James almost wept ami protested against
being taken out and fought for a chance
to bat. But Gilbert went up and Mack
ordered him given a base on balls to In
crease the chances for a force play at
third. Moran pushed down the telling
bunt and Bush made a desperate effort
lo throw out Mann nt third-threw a tit
wild and the boll went on to left and let
Mann romp home.
Stallings outflgured Mack on pitching.
He drew the Athletics Into believing that
Rudolph would pitch, then sent In Tyler,
who. while wobbly In spots, pitched grea.
ball. It was Tyler's blunder in throning
to second in the tenth Inning Instead oj
to llrst that mado possible the two runs
scored by the Athletics.
Getting down Inside, it is evident Stal- .

Stallings has two theories: one that j
