WORLD CHAMPS AGAIN
Detroit pounds Red Sox pitching
July 9, 1915
The Tigers treated the Red Sox as if they were raw meat, eating them up and spitting them out. The score was 15 to 4 and it could have been worse. It was the weal performance of Babe Ruth compounded by four errors that opened the flood gates. The
Tigers scored seven runs in the first two innings and doubled that amount in the seventh inning. After the first inning the game was over. Ruth passed Marty Kavanaugh and Ty Cobb on four straight balls. Crawford singled in Kavanaugh and Ruth fumbled Bobby
bunt. Carl Mays took Ruth's place on the mound and George Burns hit a ball to Hobby at first that he threw past Hick Cady while trying to get Crawford at the plate. Donie Bush then hit one to Larry Gardner who tried to got Veach at the plate, but as Bush was trying to advance
to second Cady fired one past Jack Barry, allowing Burns to score. When the dust settled the Tigers had a 4-0 lead on just one base hit. The Tigers scored three more runs the next inning on Kavanaugh's triple, scoring two men, and scored on Cobb's sac fly. In the sixth
inning, Detroit scored seven more runs of Vean Gregg, and did it all after two men were out on eight consecutive hits. The Tigers, indeed, are not out of the race and gave everyone notice of that fact.
