WORLD CHAMPS AGAIN
Foster and Janvrin help beat the Tigers
July 10, 1915
The Red Sox met the fierce attack of the hungry Tigers and forced them, on this day, to admit they were not the masters by a 6 to 3 score. Rube Foster went the route for the Speed Boys of Boston, and did more than his share with the stick, starting the rally in
the fourth, where the Sox posted four runs, and smacking a home run over the left field fence in the sixth inning. The sensational play of Hal Janvrin continued, making 10 assists, including some remarkable chances. He also cracked a three run double in the fourth inning.
Jack Barry also made some great defensive plays, including nailing Ty Cobb at the plate and getting Donie Bush at second on a wild throw. At times Foster was unsteady, but once his teammates put up a big lead in the sixth, he coasted through the final innings. In the fourth
inning the Sox broke a 1-1 tie and put up three. Duffy Lewis and Larry Gardner both led off with walks. Rube Foster drove in a run and Harry Hooper singled to load the bases. Janvrin cleared the bases with his double, but Hooper was thrown out at the plate. The
Tigers scored two more as did the Sox, courtesy of home runs by both Foster and Pinch Thomas. At the end, the score showed Boston winning by three runs.
