The Giant pitcher tried to work the corners of the plate for Yerkes. but. the Boston middle base guardian willed him out. With Bngle on second and Yerkea on first, Speak- er came up. The crowd was now yell- ing to a man. Speaker swung his bat and watched Mathewsoii like a hawk. The first iball "was. a. curve In- side, and Speaker popped up a high fcul, which Meyers and Mathewson after, but it fell safely between them. New York's last chance to stop the Bostons passed with the fail- ure to get the foul. Mathewson start- ed a -high fast, and Speaker met it fairly.

Bedient was token from box to allow Hendrickse'ri to bat for him in the seventh. Joe Wood went to the mound after Bedie'nt', and as the score was a tie at" the lime, Joe gets the credit for the game, his third victory of the series. Th'E 'Cleats made their first run in the third, when Devorevwent to first on four balls and later scored on a two-bagger by Murray. Bedient em- ployed a high Inshoot, which he var- ied with a sweeping outdrcp, and af- ter Devore's tally there was no more scoring for New York until the tenth when Murray cracked one of Wood's swift ones Into the bleachers for two bases, and promptly scored on Mer- kle's single to centre. These two runs were all the Giants were able to gather. A Strategical Move The Red Sox tied the score in the seventh, when Stahl knocked one of Mathewson's fadeaways into the air, and it fell between three fielders.
