"" For real pop-eyed baseball the
Cubs-Sox series is the equal of
the world's title clash. .
Begins to look like the local
teams might buck some football
team as a Thanksgiving Day
drawing card.
Ted 'Easterly and Ernie John
son delivered for Sox. Johnson,
who took Weaver's place, tripled
with one on in the .ninth, and
Easterly followed with a double,
tying the score. Two were out.
Then Joe Tinker made a one
mitted catch.
" The collision of Weaver and
Lord allowed the Cubs to get the
Jump- in the eighth. Buck is in
Mercy Hospital as a result of the
clash, and may be suffering from
concussion of the brain. Lord
quickly recovered.
Miller reached third on the
swat, anda pair of hits gave the
Cubs two runs. " - v
""'Archer and' Miller were the
Cub swatters, Jimmy collecting. a"

an even break in pitching. Ci
cotte was derricked in the ninth
to let Callahan bat, and Walsh
finished. Cubs made 11 hits and
Sox 13.
Mathewson was wobbly, in the
Boston-New York tie game, and
the so-called experts talked of his
great recovery and wonderful
nerve. Joe Wood wavered for
two innings yesterday, but in the
pinches in the eighth and ninth
was the real stingy cuss. The
same "Experts" call that luck.
It looks from here as though
Wood .had worked like a regular
pitcher, knowing he was the hope
of the Red Sox, and saving him
self for future battles except
when in a hole.
New York made nine hits to
Boston's eight, but several of the
Red Sox drives that were caught
were terrific liners. They hit the
pill'harder than the Giants.
Buck Herzog again hogged the
limelight, though Fletcher snag
ged a portion of the spot Buck
scored the only Giant run on his
single and Fletcher's double.
Fletcher came back to earth1
impressively, handling nine field
ing chances, many of them saving
Red Sox scores, and whaled a
pair of hits.
Tris Speaker was woefully
slow because of his weak ankle,
being daught in one double play
and narrowly escaping another.
He was nailed standing up when
'hetarte'd to steal. "
Wagner is proving the Boston
star in thisseries. The Red Sox
captain and'his scintillating stops.
