DOERS BEATEN
DESPITERALLY
Battle Hard in Ninth, But Red
Sox Wm, 6 to 5.
By DAMON RUNYUP.
(fltefawgemmel News seryee.)
raves Field, Boston. Mass., Oct. 7.
Peam the shadow of a five-run lead, the
reoakyn Dodgers swung a desperate
ninth-ianng charge against the Boston
Red Box In the first battle of the world
serlas here this afternoon, only to fnally
step just outside the breastworks of
victory.
"'T'mie," the worn old war song of the
Rautc baseball rooters, Is once more
floating raggedly around the streets and
hotel lobbies of the town tonight, for
the anal seore was 6 to 5 In favor of
the Rod fox.
The Dodgers went into the ninth inning
with the score 6 to 1 against them. They
were apparently beaten, broken, and in
disorderly retreat.
People were walking out of the stands,
making derisive comments on the show
Ing of the Brooklyn club. It was a joke
outft, they said, and the Red Sox would
take the championship of the baseball
weld in four games.
Shore Put to Rout.
Then It was that the Dodgers turned
and began fighting. Stolidly, phlegmati
cally, they fought. moving up run by
run on the dashing champions of the
American League, until they routed
Shore, the great right-hander of the
Sex, and need but the slightest break
in baseball fone to put them in front.
There were 35,00 people in the stands
when the game began, less than was
expected. Probably a third of that num
ber left, disgusted, after the seventh
Inning, when they saw the Dodger de
fense crumble.
Errors, errors, errors; errors by Cut
shaw, by Olson, and by Stengel: errors
of the hand and occasionally of the head
those were the reasons why every one
thought the cause of Brooklyn was
wholly hopeless.
Rube Marquard. the formr Giant, had
ritched well against the Sox. He had
pitched carefully, and with good judg
ment, but his support was too rickety.
The old fault of the Dodgers that was
characteristic of them through the Na
tional League drive was marked in
them today. The men seemed to be fear
ful they were going to lose, instead of
confIdent that they would - win, which
was the attitude of the Red Sox.
Dodgers Leek "Puneb."
In the vernacular of the world of sport,
the Dodgers lacked the punch.
Shore was none too effective against
them at any time. He went completely
to pieces In the ninth, when the Dodgers
were making their stolid rush. Even
then Robinson's men had no wallop. One
hit by Chief Meyers. the Indian, once
ne of the greates sluggers of his
era, or hy Fred Merkle, aacting as
a pinch hitter, or, anally. by Jack
Dauber. captain of the Dodgers, would
have put the Brooklyn club on the road
to victory.
Merkle got a base on balls from Shore
at a time when the bases were filled,
forchsn in a run for the Dodgers, and
that finished the lank Carolina lad. He
was succeeded by Carl Mays and much
of the credit for stopping the Dodgers
must go to Mays.
He is a pitcher with the most singular
delivery in the world.
It is called underhanded, but it is more
than underhanded. Before he lets the
ball go. Mays stoops so far over that
his head is within a foot of the ground.
Weird Pitehing ComSuses.
He pitches from that crouching posi
tion. the ball shooting up to the batter
at weird angles. Erstaine Mayer, of the
Phillies. pitches underhanded and the
Dodgers were not wholly unfamiliar with.
that style. but Mays' exaggerated under
handedness disconcerted Hap Myers and
I1subert, the men who hit against him,
to some extent.
Hap Myers pulled one of the very
smartest plays of the game in that ninth
inning when he beat an Infield roller by
a headlong slide into first. Had not
Myers made that strange slide, the rally
of the Dodgers would have stopped be
fore it did.
It was not a good game-not for a
world's championship game, anyway.
There were some slashing plays on both
sides, but the baseball experts speak ot
it tonight as a sloppy exhibition.
Harry Hooper, the Californian, stood
out, as Is ever his custom in the cham
pionship contests, and Duffy Lewis, and
Janvrin. and Clarence Walker, the man
who took Tris Speaker's place, did notable
work.
Tessie Breaks the Air.
It was nearly 2 o'clock when the band
entered the right field stand. They broke
into the strains of "Tessie." A loud.
long drawn "Ha Ha" arose from the
crowd. It was the first time this after
noon that the old, old, battle tune of the
Boston baseball rooters had been ralsed.
Back In 1UMt, when It looked as if the
Boston Red Sox were surely defeated by
the Pittsburgh club, a devoted bunch of
fans followed the home town team, start
to finsh, with a band that played noth
ing but "Tessie." then a popular song
of the day. It was forlorn hope the Sox
put through that season, and always
sInce then the Boston rooters have trail
ed -them with the old tune. Boston has
never yet lost a world series.
Shortly before 2 o'clock there was a
conference of umpires at the plate, Rube
Marquard was warming up in front of
the Dodger bench. Carrigan had two
pitchers worklug One was Ernest Shore.
the long right-hander, and the other was
