Athletics Throw Away Chance in Ninth to Capture
Battle—Burns and Wiltse Play in Splendid Style
Philadelphia, October 8.—Christy Mathewson, master ma
nipulator of the baseball, led the New York Giants to victory
at Shibe park today when he shut out the Philadelphia Athletics
in a 10-inning battle by a U to 0 score -in the second game of
the world’s series. Hero of-a decade of league and world’s
championship play, the famous veteran rose to the highest pin
nacle of his diamond career by an exhibition of all round play
that wrung volleys of applause from the 20,000 Athletic sup
porters who were massed in the. stands and bleachers expecting
to witness a second triumph for the standard bearers of the
American league. Box score experts will point to their figures
to prove that 11 other Giants were instrumental in winning the
second contest of the series, but the Philadelphia fans wrho filed
sadly out of the Athletics ball park spoke only of Mathewson.
For a trifle over two hours and 20
minutes the man whose requiem was
sung by thousands pf fans after the
final game against the Boston Red
Sox in the world’s series of 1912
turned back the hard hitting Athletics
without a semblance of a break. Then
when he saw that his team mates
could not wrest victory from Plank,
he took his bat and drove in the run
v I t won the game. Spurred on by
his example, the other Giants added
two more to clinch the contest, but
they were not needed.
Mathewson was the master to the
end, Oldrlng, Collins nnd Baker being
unable to drive the ball outside the
diamond In tho tenth and final inning,
altlibugh 20,000 adherents pleaded for
a lilt that might start a winning rally.
As a result of Mathewson's prowess the
Giants went back to New York tonight
on even terms with the Athletics and
the struggle will be renewed at the
Polo grounds tomorrow. If the weather
man so wills, with the two teams in
comparatively the same position they
wer% before they crossed bats for the
' 1913 title.
Ideal Battle
Regardless ot the disappointment of
the outcome of the game as viewed
from a Philadelphia standpoint, not a
single one of the thousands of specta
tors who witnessed the game regretted
the hours spent in stands or bleachers.
As an exhibition of high class baseball
and sensational pl%y the game was all
that an ideal world's championship
contest should be in fiction or reality.
For nine innings the rival clubs bat
tled without advantage, brilliant field
ing arid thrilling coupes shutting out
runs that appeared assured. In the
tenth, with the shades of darkness set
tling over tlie park, the hero of the
game terminated the contest lust as the
dramatist would have staged the final
scene. The Athletics had a chance to
• win In the ninth and many thought
poor generalship on the beach and
coaching lines threw' away the one op
portunity that the fortunes of base
ball cast their way.
Both Mathewson and Plank had
twirled a game that was little short of
wonderful up to this point and Plank
was beginning to -falter under the
strain. Th^ir team mates, too, w'erc
ttremble with the responsibilities that
each inning was heaping on their
shoulders.
Athletics* Lone Chance
With the Athletics at bat in the last
half of the ninth and but a solitary run
needed to close the contest, Strung
opened with a single past second. Barry
bunted toward Doyle, who ran in and
scooped the ball up, whirled and threw
wild past Wlltse at first in an attempt
to catch the Athletics’ shortstop. The
oall sailed clear to the lightfleld
grandstand, while Strunk and Barry

rustled around the bases. Strunk was
held at third when he had ample time
to score. It was the Athletics* lone
chance, for Wlltse and Mathewson cut
down three Athletics In a row imme
diately after by a brilliant exhibition
of infielding and then came the Giants'
rush to victory.
Larry McLean, who substituted for
Meyers after the Indian split his finger
in practice, singled to rightfield in ihe
tenth Inning. Grant ran for him and
reached second on Wiltse’s sacrifice.
Mathewson then clinched the game
with his clean smash to center, on
which Grant scored. Right here the
Athletics cracked. Herzog hit to Col
lins. wiio threw to Barry to catch
Mathewson at second. Apparently Barry
was unable to see the ball except to
dodge it as it flashed by on the way
to leftfield. Mathewson and Ilerzog
[gained an additional base on the mis
play. Plank hit Doyle, filling the
bases. Fletcher followed with a bounder
over Baker’s head, scoring Mathewson
and Herzog, and the Giants had two
more runs than were needed, as it ulti
mately proved, to win the game.
learns Evenly Matched
Aside from the brilliancy of Mathew
son, the two teams were evenjy matched.
Flank was not quite as steady as his
rival in the box, giving two bases on
balls and bitting one batter to Mathew
son’s solitary pass. The plants secured
seven hits off Plank to the Athletics’
eight from Mathewson* who struck out
live batters to Plank’s six. New York
had eight left on bases to Philadelphia’s
10. Fletcher, McLean and Mathewson se
cured two hits each, a total of six out of
j the seven recorded by the Giants. Baker
j was the only Athletic player to get to
I Mathewson for more than one hit, the
! home run batsman being credited with
j two.
| Had it not been for Mathewson’s ro
I markable exhibition in the box and at
bat, George Wlltse would have been hailed
as the star of the game. As it was,
his play was such that it brought him
congratulations from both players and
fans. Substituted for Snodgrass, first as
runner and then at first base in the third
inning, he played a game that equalled
anything that Merkle, the Giants’ regular,
has shown this season. As if to test
his courage and stamina, ball after ball
was Hashed his way during -the next
seven innings. Not an error or a flaw
marred his work, and the climax came in
the ninth, when he cut two Athletics down
at the plate and took Mathewson’s throw
ut first for the third out.
According to the figures of the national
j commission, 20,563 person* paid admission
to witness the game, the receipts amount
j ing to $49,640, compared with the records
| of the first game here in 1911, the attend
ance was approximately $5000 less, but the
I receipts $6000 greater, due to the in
j crease in prices for seats this season.
Many See Game Free
Probably 4000 more saw the game from
points of vantage outside the park. The
i two rows of brick houses that overlook
Shibe park on two sides were literally
! swarming with spectators. On roofs and
j porches temporary stands had been erect
ed, an4 these were black with men and
i boys who climbed through windows and

In other respects the scenes attendant
on the gathering of the fans were much
the same as at the opening game in New
York, except upon a smaller scale. Bodies
of men and boys stood all night in the
drizzle awaiting the opening of the gates
to the bleachers, and long before noon
this section of the stands was crowded to
its utmost capacity. The grandstand seats
all being reserved, the holders of these I
coupons gathered slowly, and it was not j
until the second inning that the vacancies
were filled.
Outside the park thousands stood
throughout the game, echoing the cheers
of those within, while automobiles lined
the streets for several squares about the
baseball arena. The spectators w-ere no
ticeably fair in their treatment of the
players of the two clubs, applauding j
every good play regardless of whether I
made by Athletic or Giant. Naturally
they rooted hardest for an Athletic vie- ;
tory, but when h. was seen that Mathew
son was invulnerable, the thousands rose 1
up and cheered the old master In a way
that could not have been surpassed even
at the Polo grounds.
Herzog First Batter
| After the conferences between umpires
land Manager McGraw and Captain Dan
Murphy were over, the Athletics took the
jfleld and Herzog led off for New York.
After -having two balls and a strike, Her
t zog sent a high fly to Collins and was out
! amid the cheers of the crowd. Captain
[ Doyle drove a fly to Strunk in center
| field and Fletcher ended the inning by
I falling a victim to strikes.
The home rooters cheered Eddie Mur
phy as he faced the old. reliable Mathew—
son. His first pitch, unusual fpr him in
a world's series game, was a ball, but
the second was a strike, and then Mur
phy sent a slow grounder to Doyle. The
New York captain, in his anxiety to make
a quick throw to head off the fleet run
ner, let the ball go betw-een bis legs and
Murphy was safe. Reuben Oldring wait
ed for what he wanted and slashed a sin
gle to left field, sending Murphy dowrn to
second base. Then Collins did what every
body expected him to do—sacrificed. Snod
grass to Doyle, advancing both team
mates. “Hit ’er out Baker,’’ shouted the
i Athletic rooters as Hie home run hero*
I stepped to the plate, picked up some dirt
! and rubbed it on his hands. Matftewson,
unperturbed, pitched a wide out shoot for
Baker to bat at, but the slugger let it go
by for a ball. The crow shouted, but the
“old master” quickly had two strikes on
him by Baker fouling the ball. On the
next, pitch the hard hitting third base
man w as out on strikes. "You didn’t .do it
that time,” shouted someone from the
stand behind the Giants’ bench. Mcln
nis filed to Burns, leaving Murphy and
Oldring stranded on the bases.
Giants Lasy in second
Burns was the first man up for New
York in the* second inning, struck out on
Plank’s cross lire halls. Shafer hit up a
long fly that fell into Murphy's hands,
and Murray was quickly disposed of by
Plank, who struck him out. Plank was
going good, and it looked as if the game
would settle down to a pitchers' Battle.
The Athletics did not trouble Mathew
son in the second Inning as much as they
did In the first. Strunk shot a grounder
tdkBoyle, who got the ball cleanly this
time and tossed the fast center fielder out
by Inches. Burns took care of Barry's
high fly and Lapp went out by the strike
out route.
The best that I.arry McLean qould do
when lie came to hat In the third inning
for New York was to pop up a fly tu
Barry. Shodgvass shot a single Into left
Held and the crowd got its first good idea
of the New Yorker's "Charley horse,” for
he hobbled slowly to first. With Mathew
son at bat, Plank had little fear of Snod
grass trying to steal, even though he took
a long lead off the base.
The Philadelphia battery noticed this
and Plank sent up a very wide outshoot
whiqh Lapp shot to Mclnni*, but Snod
grass was easily under the throw, and
safe at tho bag. Mathewson drove a
long single to center field and Snodgrass
ran as fast as he could and just beat tho
throw-ln In to third, the Giants' pitcher
going to second on the throw. Wlltse here
replaced the crippled Snodgrass. Herzog
hounded a grounder to Plank, who caught
Wlltse between third and home and he
was run down by Lapp who raced almost
to third to get him. Mathewson moved
up to third on the play and Herzog took
second. The Athletics Infield played in
to get the nearest runner, but they did
not have to do this for Boyle filed out to
Oldring after having three- balls and two
strikes.
AtmeucB tjuiciuy uispusea ui
The American league champions were
quickly disposed of In their half of the
third. Plank was tlirowp out. Doyle to
Wiltse, who replaced Snodgrass at first
base. Eddie Murphy changing his style
of play,»tried to get away with a safe
bunt, but Mathewson fielded the ball In
fine style and got the runner at first.
Oldring shot a fast grounded to Herzog,
whoi made a pretty throw to Wiltse, re
tiring the side.
New York rooters shouted for Fletcher
to ’'start something” when he went to
hat In the fourth inning and he responded
by slashing the ball to Barry who made
a fine stop and throw to first, getting
the hall there ahead of the runner. Burns,
still unable to solve the puzzling 'cross
fire balls of Plank, struck out for the
secortd time amid much cheering on the
part of the home crowd. Shafer hit a
grounder to Baker, who had lots of time
to get the ball to first, but threw low and
Shafer was safe on the error. MoGraw,
who was coaching at first base, said
something to Shafer and a moment later
he darted for second In an attempted
steal, but LappN throw to Collins beat
him and he was out.
Baker Singles Sharply
In the Athletics’ half of the fourth,
Collins hit tokllathewson and was out at
first Baker brought the fans to their
feet by driving a hot single to right
field. Doyle got his fingers on It as It
shot past him on his left side, but only
Reflected the ball. Baker went to second
on Mclnnlf’ out, Doyle to Wiltse.
Mathewson had two strlkea on Strunk

MASTER OF ATHLETICS
• Chrisxx 'Mathe-vtaoj-j.,
I’itehing In prime form (lie “Old Hunter” arose (o' (lie highest pin
naele of Ills diamond career yesterday afternoon by giving one of (he
greatest exhibitions in pitehliig ever seen on a baseball diamond. Through
out the great struggle Hnttv ««n master of the situation and at limes (he
mighty Athletie sluggers were helpless before his pn/./.llng beuders.
when he lost hip sense of location for a
moment and the Athletic batter got the
first base on balls of the game. With two
smart runners on the bases and a brainy
m$n at the bat the crowd shouted for u
run. The runners were off with the pitch
and Barry hit the'ball, but it bounded
slowly to second where Doyle scooped it
and touched second, retiring the side.
This was the second time in four innings
that the Athletic^ had two men left on
the bases.
New York managed to get two men on
the bases in the fifth inning after which
Plank tightened up. Murray drove a fly
to left which Oldring easily held and
McLean got his first hit of the game toy
smashing a single close along the third
base foul line. Wiltse failed to advance
him by striking out. Mathewson worked
Plank for a base on balls. It was then
up to Herpog, but the third baseman
drove one at Collins and he was out at
'first.
Burns Makes Circus Catch
Catcher Lapp was an easy out at first
in Philadelphia’s iifth. Plank rammed
a single between first and second. He
was left there, however, as Murphy
drove a long fly to Burns, who hacked
almost to the bleacher seats in left
field to make the catch and Oldring
was thrown out at first by Fletcner.
The sixth inning was qujeklv over.
Both pitchers were going in magnifi
-cent style. Doyle sent a weak bounder
to Plank and was tossed out. Fletcher
sent up a high foul that Mclnnis got
under and he was out. Murphy took
care of Burns’ long fly’.
In the Athletics’ half, Umpire Con
nolly was hooted when he called Col
lins' grounder a foul. The bail was
bounding along the third base foul line
when Herzog got it and dropped it, the
ball falling on foul territory. Jt was
the second strike on Collins and he was
called out on strikes, as Matliewson
shot the next ball across the plate.
Baker drove a wicked grounder that
looked as if it w’ould go U> center field,
but Fletcher managed to* get up to it,
as the hall shot over second and made
a fine throw to first while on the Ain.
This was one of the best filedirig plays
of the game and brought forth much
cheering. Mclnnis struck out.
In the seventh Inning Shafer, for
New York, filed to Strunk. Murray put
up a fly that Barry took in without any
trouble. McLean drove a long fly tc i
Oldring.
Burns Stars Again
One of the best catches of the day
was made by’ Burns, who ran in and
got Strunk’s short fly almost off the
ground. Barry hit to Herzog, who
made a pretty’ throw to first ahead of
the runner. Lapp shot a single past
Wiltse, but was left on first when
Plank sent up a pop fly to Fletcher.
With the eighth inning beginning
and both pitchers going as well as
wrhen they started, it looked like extia
innings. A light mist spread ever the
ball park, giving the two pitchers a
little more advantage over the batters.
Wiltse opened New York’s half by go
ing out, Collins to Mclnnis. Mathew
son, who seemed to have no trouble in
hitting Plank, smashed a hard drive to
right field. Murphy barely got up to
the ball, picked it off his shou lops and
turned a somersault. He held the ball,
however, and Umpire Kgan, who was in
right field, signalled that Murphy had
made the out. *
Herzog hit a high fly to center field '
for w hich Strunk had to do some'
sprinting to get.
Matty Gets Into Trouble
Mathew’son’s first real trouolc came
in the eighth inning, with tne top of
the Athletics’ hatting order up. Mur
phy grounded out to Wiltse, who was
playing a fine game around fiist bag.
Oldring w’as the second out, Fletcher
to Wiltse. CoFins brought the crowd
to its feet b shooting a single into
left field. AHaln the cry came for Baker
to hit a home run and he icsponded

* The ninth inning opened with l)oyl«
flying out to Strunk. Fletcher brought
cheers for the Giants’ supporters b>
hitting to center field for the base.
Burns received a base on balls and
Fletcher moved to second. There was
some excitement on the Giants’ bench
at the prospect of scoring, but the New
York players were doomed to disap
pointment. Shafer flied to Old ring, and
Murray, amid tremendous cheering, sen;
up a fly to Murphy.
Athletics throw Away Chances
Then came the Athletics’ ninth in which
they had golden opportunities to win the
game. The crowd rose to its feet as |
Strunk singled to center. Barry, in at - |
tempting to sacrifice him. hit *.1 slow I
bounder toward second and Doyle run
ning in picked up the hall and tossed it
to first as Barry Hashed over the buy,.
The throw was bad and Barry r^ieed to
second and Strunk went on to third.
There was a chance for Strunk to s .ore,
but he was held ut third, it looked like
a sure victory for the Athletics. Ail the
[New York infield surrounded MtUhevv: on
and after a short.' conference the big
pitcher again went into the box. Lapp
hit weakly to Wiltse and the latter"shot
the ball to McLean as Strunk runned to
the plate. McLean easily put the ;»all on
the runner and he was out, Strunk not
touching the plate as he slid pan ;t.
Barry moved up to third on the out. The
•excitement was great among the crowd.
It was expected that Manager Mack would
send in a pinch hitter for Plank. Plank,
after reaching the plate, was called away,
but Mack decided to let the pitcher hut.
Plank hit to Wiltse, who shot Che ball
to McLean, catching Barry coming home.
Barry darted back toward third and Mc
Lean threw the ball to Herzog, who then
returned It to Mathewson down the. line
find Barry was touc-ned out. Lapp
reached third and Plank second. Murphy
ended the inning by sending an easy
grounder to Mathewson, who threw him |
out. It was great pitching on the part of
Mathewson and he received generous ap
plause as he walked to the plate.
( Giants (Jam Victory
The memorable tenth Inning saw vic
tory go to the Giants. McLean opened
it with a single to right, center. Grant
was ordered to run for McLean and went
down to second on WJItse s Bacritlce hit,
Plank putting the hall on Wiltse ns he
ran toward first base. Mathewsnc then
came to time and won Ills game by send
ing a slashing single to center He'd, on
which Grant came home. Grant, -think
ing the play at the plate would he close,
slid in, hut he made the home base eas
ily. Herzog shot a grounder ut Collins
and the lRtter threw life ball to Barry
to force Mathewson. Barry appeared > >
lose sight of the ball anil it went over
his head as Mathewson reached second
and he kept on to third as the hall rolled
into center field. Herzag reaching sec
ond. Plank hit Doyle witli a pitched ball
and the bases \veve full. Fletcher caught
one of Plunk's’fast, Inshoots on the end
of his hat and drove It down the thirl
base line. The ball took an unexpeeto 1
bounce and shot far over Halier's hea t
for a single, on which Mathewson and
Herzog crossed the plate. Burns struck
out for the third time and Hhafer filed
to Murphy. . !
Athletics Fail in Tenth i

TULANE ELEVEN
HARD AT WORK
Coach Hoffman Puts the
Players Through Hard
Scrimmages
New Orleans. October 8.—Scrimmaging
and signal practice Constituted the pro
gramme at the Tulane. stadium yester
day* afternoon, and ('oath Hoffman did
not spare any' one of the men. but kaj t
them all at work until the coming of
darkness forced the players to stop.
Pete Mailhea was again In the game,
anti says that it would take a great deal
•nor ethan merely a sprained ankle to keep
him off the Held.
Allan Johnson, a new man, was ou’ on
the field, and Coach Hoffman gave him
a chance to show what he could do. in
scrimmage. Johnson has played some ,
football with the University of T^xas,
where lie played on the line with ilie j
second team, and he .-uvnta to kr.« \\ :
something about the science of the game. 1
All of the men are doing their very
best, for many who bellavc that though
the.v might not be able to get on ihe j
varsity, think that they have a good i
chance to got on the second team, which
is soon to take the trip to Mobile to play
Springhill, and all the men are anxious
to make the trip. •
At signal practice the squad handled
by Sumter Marks easily outshone the
squads which were handled by "Pinky"
Grehan and "FYeshie" Marston. it seems
that Marks is at his best this year, Nund
in fact it appears that his quick and
snappy work is even better. He kept
his squad charging up and down the
Held until scrimmage, and here lie again
handled his men to the best advantage.
Kvery duy of practice and scrimmage
is now telling as to ^hom will be the men
to defend the honor of Tulane against all
comers, and there will probably be some
surprises tprung when Coach Hoff can
lines up his team next Saturday in tin
opening game of the season with .le lor
son college.
