I won't pay anything now except that the result dees not surprise me I knew my boys could and would de liver In my experience as a base ball manager I have never seen a team like the present Braves team They are wonders, and the baseball public will hear more 01 them next year. The Braves tonight are where they rightfully belong at the top on the baseball heap -and unless 1 miss my j guess they will stay there for 6ome time to come. By DICK RUDOLPH, Who Beat the Athletics Twice. The Athletics were the easiest team to beat that I have faced all year or any of the other seven years of my pitching experience. 1 had heard so much about their slugging powers and I found that they couldn't lhe up to their reputation 1 would rather i pitch against the Athletics all year J long than the wor6t teams in the Na- ! tional or American leagues, and I .know that my average would show far better. They swung at anything T fed them, whether it was low. high or wide They showed no batting judgment, end they were a cinch I was ner ous during the first three innings of the first game I pitched against them, but after I had pitched to the entire team once I figured I had their numbers I CHICAGO AMERICANS I TIE WITH NATIONALS Chicago.

"Trojan Johnny Bvers smashed out a single in the fifth Inning of this afternoon's base ball game and the impossible had happened. Two Boston runners crossed the plate, (Inching the game for the Boston Braves, giving them their fourth straight victory over the Philadelphia Athletics and the base ball championship of the world Pour straight victories fo r tho Braves over the once peerless and still wonderful Markmen' What a marvelous achievement! Not one fan in every ten thousand in this land, preat as he may have thought the Braves, predicted such a thing as has come to pass the doing out by the Prnves to the Athletics of four suc cessive beatings. The Braves won today and they won the othr three games, not through luck not because they got the breaks of the game, but because they outplayed tho Athletics in every Irpartment of tho game. They out hatted the Blugglng Philadelphians. they outflelded them, they outpitched them they outcaught them and they oui ran them. And by their remark ahle showing in this series they de serve to rank ahead of the Athletics they deserve to be placed on the pinnacle e.f the baseball world, so that all should pay them homage At Top Speed. There was nothing fluky about the Braves' First victory in Philadelphia on Friday They fairly crushed the Athletics that day They played a game then that caused the experts to predict that they would be the next hanipions of the world unless they showed a startling reversal of form But the reversal did not come, nor did the "crack" come. The Braves held toother because they are welded into one solid, compact mass that no force In baseball at the pres ent time has been able to stop. The Braves won Saturday because Tames, the huge Boston twirler, held the enemy in the palm of his hand and because of the great infield of the Braves, which backed him up at critical moments and checked any ULIi tie rally that started. The Hraves won on -Monday because they ihowed their wonderful gameness H-cause they fought from behind, time and again, never despairing, never iiseouraged, always rushing forward lrni rushing forward fast. The poor judgment of Connie Mack In the tenth inning ol" yesterday's game ;vhen he let Bush remain in the box vith 3,1,520 fans shrieking n his ears, :ki;. have helped the Braves. But nay be it did not. Had Connie sub Itituted some othnr pitcher he might lave fared the same as did Bush ; ind probably worse. The Fighting Spirit. The Brave? showed their wonderful fighting spirit yesterday, a spirit of the kind that nothing daunts Noth ing seems to be too hard or impossi ble for them to accomplish on a ball field. And, in this series, nothing was too hard. They smashed their way to the baseball championship of the world, by the most direct route four straight games and in doing so they established n record for world series battles that never can be beaten. There was nothing undeserved, nothing lucky about the Braves' vic tory today. They won because they deserved to win because they smash ed the Athletic defense in critical mo ments and because their own defense was a Gibraltar in every crisis. The Athletics, grim, determined and desperate, started off today in a way that mado many think that their old batting eyes had come back that they had solved the puzzling delivery of Dick Rudolph, the midget Boston pitcher. But just at a time when they began to loom up as dangerous the defense behind Rudolph tighten ed, the Infield executed some of the most marvelous plays ever seen on i any ball field, and the Athletics were helpless in their attempt to batter their way to victory. The Braves took the lead in the fourth inning by- scoring ono run Ever6 walked and went to second on Connolly's out. Whitted singled, send ing Evers to third, and "Trojan John ny" scored on Schmidt's out. The Athletics tied things up in their half of the fifth on Barry's single and Schang's out, which advanced him to second, and on Shawkey's double Barry raced home Then it was the 34,000 shrieking fans, begging for the Braves to break the tie, had their shrieks answered For it was In their half of the fifth that the Braves crashed their way to victory. With two out Rudolph surprised jhimself and the fans by uncorking 1 ta single. Moran followed with a dou ble, sending Rudolph to third. Evers stepped up and with the count three to two. picked out one of Shawkoy s flSt ones and sont it sailing to cen ter, Rudolph and Moran scoring, while the crowd went mad and tho musi cians hammered out fierce blasts of joy on their wind instruments Evers" hit practically ended the game. From that moment on the Athletics were helpless before Ku dclph. He threw them high and low and he grooved them, but tho "great est hitting team in the world" missed and missed again. In the ninth, with the Athletics' wrecking crew" up j in order, the Philadelphia fans nursed I a faint hope. But it soon died Col- llns, the first man up, fanned and ho fanned ingloriously Baker was an easy infield out. Mclimis smashed a violent bounder at Deal The Braves' third sacker fumbled it for a mo ment, recovered it and whipped it over to first. The hall arrived a frac tion of a second ahead of the racing MeJnnis, and the. baseball season of 1014 was a thing of the past. Mack sent Shawkey, one of his " kid" twirlers, to the mound this aft ernoon, much to the surprise of the baseball world Everything pointed to the repeating of Chief Bender. Ev erything except the weather. A cold, raw wind swept across the field, the temperature was down around 45 and It was not a Bender day. Bender nev er wafl a eold-weathop pitcher, and probably Connie, fearing to place the last hope of the Athletics upon a man whose arm does not respond in weather like today s, decided upon his j ounfistcr. Shawkey pitched a fine game, but It was not good enough to beat the unbeatable Braves. Probably if he had passed Evers, always a dangerous pinch hitter. In the fifth and taken a chance on Connolly, who hit far be low expectations in this series, the re sult misht have been different. And It might not. But the fact remains that he grooved a ball for E ers and the show was over. The fans this afternoon came garbed In their heaviest winter tog gery, and despite the protection of overcoats and furs they shivered throughout the performance. But not one left before the last man was out in the ninth. There was no seventh ond eighth Inning oxodus as at other Kimes. The "wrecking crew" from Philadelphia was due for another chance at the ball in the final in ning and many things might have happened. The "wrecking crew' came up in due time, the "wrecking crew' pitted itself against Dick Rudolph and Ru dolph turned them back, one after an other, and now the curtain has fal len on the baseball season 1914 and a new king reigns. Long may he live. HOPPE WINS TWO GAMES OVER INMAN Chicago.
