Jtoton ....OOOOOOOO 11 rhiladelphU OOOOOOOO 0 O PHILADELPHIA. Oct. 1( In a pitch (ra' battle with a dramatic cllmai usually reserved for base ball fiction, the Boston National! defeated the Philadelphia Americans here today In the seecld game of the world's series by a score 1 to 0. As a result of the victory the Bii.ves left lor Boston tonight with a two-game, lead liver the Athletics and the added advan tage of playing; the next two contests on their home grounds when the series is resumed on Monday. Battle Etta Eight Frame. Although the American league repre sentatives wero forced to bow, for the econd time In two days, to the superior play of their National league rivals, they Offered a far more determined opposition than was the case on Friday. For eight Innings the two clubs battled iwhind the pitching of James and Plank without the semblance of an advantage. Then came the break in the game and once again the Machnien saw another Vorld's series contest slip from tholr dutches to the credit of the Stalling Han. Break In Ninth. James had been pitching unhittaMe ball end Plank, while not quite as effective, had. with the aid of his remarkable In field, held Boston scoreless. The Ath letics' veteran twlrler was working as smoothly as at the beginning of the game when Marsnvllcl faced him at the open ing of the ninth Inning. The plantonillke shortstop went out, Harry to Mclnnls and Deal, substitute, third baseman. In' place of Red Smith, Stepped to the plate. The Athletic fol lowers wer already figuring on what chance their players had to win out In the ninth. Deal and James appeared to be easy outs. The Boston's third Backer, who had hit into three double plays on Friday and forced three team mates In today's game, was not considered a batting factor. Deal the Man. It , was Peal, however, who upset Flank's expectation and the Athletics rhances. He drove a long double over trunk's heud and a moment later stole third when Schang threw low to Barry to catch Peal off the base. Barry turned to throw to third, but held the ball and Peal was safe. Whether Baker was not dose enough to the bag or Barry believed It waa too late to head off the runner is not known. James fanned, but Mann lifted a low puzzling Texas leaguer over Eddie Collins' neao ana aunougn me latter made a great try for the ball, ho lust touched It with his finger tips and sprawled In the turf. Deal dashing across the plate with the solitary run of the game. Reply with Rally. The Athletics replied with k. rreat isllv tn their half of the ninth and James, who had carried the game on his shoulders alone up to this point, began to totter. The thousands of rooters for the home club were stamping, cheering and clap ping in unison and Barry waited patiently until James passed him to first. Schang- fanned, but Walsh, batting for Plank, also waa walked by the rattled pitcher. With two on and one out, the fans felt sure that the Mackmen were to break through and win. and the uproar was deafening. Eddie Murphy, leadoff man for the Athletics, stepped to the plate, and, catching one of James' curves full on the end of his bat, drove a leaping grounder to the left of second base. Maranville sprang with the crack of the bat and with a catlike bbund clutched the ball, and with another leap touched the bag, Torclng Walsh. Knii Hall to Schmidt. With almost the same motion he snapped the ball to Schmidt at first for a double on Murphy and a second later went down in a cloud of dust as Walsh crashed Into him at top speed. When he scrambled to his feet the nlher players were running for the club house and the game was saved. This scintllatlng play came at a most opportune and dramatic moment, for James had begun to falter after pitching a game which for skill and control has never been surpassed In a world's series match in this city, not even In the twirl ing duels in which Christy Mathewson, 'Chief Bender and Plank have figured. The Boston boxman had perfect control, change of pace and a spttter that broke like forked lightning. Weather la Ideal. The day was built for base ball. Tho un dried up the moist clouds during the morning and shone brilliantly on the soft greens of the field. An August tem perature presaged a good work-out of the players in practice and a faat field ing game. Manager Stalling had his reversible outfield working out at the bat, so ho could shift his back fielders in case a left-hand pitcher was sent In by the Athletics. Mann Was ready to replace Moran In right and Cathers to take Con nolly's place In left should Manager M"k send Plank to the box. The Athletics evidently expected the big right-hander, James, would pitch for Boston, for after a left-hander, Davlea, lad served a few balls to the home bats men, John Coombs took his place. For Boston, Cottrell. a southpaw, pitched In "ractlce and the visitors sent drive after Orlve to the far gardens. Both infields! worked smoothly and Imaginary double Jdays. turned with lightning rapidity, brought cheers from the" stands. Play by laalaas. Boston Plank's first serve was a hall, j I fie curve breaking wide of the plute. The 1 next one came over for a strike.

In that alono could the Cornhusker rootort find solace. Thrice South Dakota at- tempted drop kicks, but twice Hie biill went wild and the third time llalliKan broke through and blocked a kirk that threatened to turn the tide of buttle to the South Dakotans. Fall at Critical Moments. Nebraska played a good offensive game until tho ball was well within South Da kota territory and then the Huskers were unable to make distance. HalllRan and Chamberlain hurled themselves against the South Dakota line tn vain and at- empted to skirt the ends, but the defense of the Coyotes was much too stout and Itha trials were futile. It was a game of open play, hut neither Nebraska nor South Dakota seemed able to utilise the forward pass with any measure of success. Although the Cornhuskers attempted several forward passes, success did not crown a single effort. South I aVota fared slightly better and managed to make two passes good, one for four yarda and one for eighteen. Team Play Lacking. Nebraska's showing was again dis tinctly disappointing. The team, with Its individual stars, showed plenty of power In both attacks and defensive play, but tho well-oiled machinery necessary for success was sadly lacking. Tho need of a guiding hand ai quarter was Dalnfullv apparent, although Haw kins fought a plucky, determined battle and really displayed better form In re turning punts than Howard last Satur day. Cameron, at center, played a splendid game and mado Pott, over the eligibility of whom a bitter controversy ensued, lok like a sick man. Chamberlain. Ruth erford and Howard were aldo to gain much ground, although not consistently, and Rutherford played his usuully sturdy defensive game. Vldal, Ferguson and Hengel were very much in evidence for South Dakota, and contributed largely to the tie score. llnsker Line Weak. Nebraska's right bide, of the line was weak ami South Dakota found It exceed ingly easy to make gains. The secondary defense was cab-d upon time aftr to stop plays directed at that point. Howard made a twenty-yard sprint from a fake punt formation. Nebraska never Serb nsly threatened the Cqyi te goal, while Chamberlain's fumble gave South Dakota the ball on the Nebraska six yard line. Three times South Dukota tried to pierce the Husker line, but euch time was thrown hack, and Vldal's third attempt st n field goal was blocked. Play In the first quarter suraed back and forth, with the teams evenly matched. Chamberlain's fumble late in the quarter gave South DaKota a chance, but it went from the twenty-flve-yai d line without Finish In Center of Field. Nebraska took the ball, punud out of danger, and then holding South Dakota on downs, carried It Into their territory. Nebraska had the ball on South Dakota's twtnty-flve-yard line at the close of the quarter. Wayne Normal Wins. WAPNK. Neb., Oct. 10. (Special Tele gram.)
