Marquard, Pfeffer and Meyers; Shore, Mays and Cady,
Braves Field. Boston, Oct. 7.—The Boston Americans
triumphed over Brooklyn's Nationals in the first game of
the world's series here this afternoon, 6 to 5. Boston's
victory was threatened in the last inning when Shore
weakened and had to be taken from the box. Over 40,000
people saw the contest, which was marked by brilliant
fielding on the part of the victors and defense on the part
of Brooklyn. Marquard started in the box for Brooklyn,
but his defense completely crumpled in the seventh, when
h couple of errors and a hit gave Boston three runs and
n safe lead.
. Oct. 7.—Clear skies, light
and moderate temperature
combined to form perfect weather con
ditions for the first game of the world's
series today between the Brooklyn Na
tionals and Boston Americans.
The batting order was announced as
Brooklyn—Myers, center field: Dau
bert. first base; Stengle, right; Wheat,
left; Cutshaw, second buse; Mowrey,
third base; Olson, shortstop; Meyers,
catcher; Marquard, pitcher.
Boston—Hooper, right field; Janvrin,
second base; Walker, center field; Hob
lltzeli, first base; Lewis, left field;
Gardner, third base; Scott, shortstop;
Cady, catcher; Shore, pitcher.
The mass of people who swarmed
through the broad reaches of Braves
field grew rapidly from the small groups
who spent the night at the bleacher
gates. The night line was smaller than
had preceded any world's series games
played here In recent years. The gates
were opened at 9 o'clock.
IN PERFECT CONDITION.
Those on the ground early found the
field in perfect condition. A platform
to the right of the home plate was put
up for the moving picture men. The
great capacity of the field had been ex
tended, providing space for 45,000 per
sons through the erection of a fence
«cross the right field from the smaller
stand to the wall. These standing places
together with the 2000 seats in the ex
treme right field corner, sold Ft 50
cents each. The price was so low that
tl.c gate was jammed at an hour when
the grand stand entrances were desert
ed. Reservations, however, had been
virtually sold out hours ahead. So great
was the demand that could not be sat
isfied, some of it from friends of club
officers and players, that President
J.annln increased his
premium a ticket
above the ticket's face value. He re
ported that he would he able to buy
back only a few.
