WORLD CHAMPS AGAIN
Joe Wood saves the Sox again
July 22, 1915
The Red Sox jumped out to a good lead only to see the Browns peck away at it until the end. Rube Foster failed to hold it. Carl Mays showed weakness. So Joe Wood was called upon to come to the rescue. Grover Lowdermilk started for the Browns
and immediately got himself into trouble. He walked both Hooper and Wagner to start the game. Tris Speaker knocked out the first of his three hits by driving in Harry Hooper. Dick Hoblitzell followed that up by clearing the bases with a line single and the Sox were three
to the good. The Browns came back in the bottom of the first and knocked off one run. The Sox scored again in the third, with Speaker again driving in Hooper. The Browns chipped away in the bottom of the inning and another one in the fourth. The Sox broke it open
in the ninth with three big runs. Joe Wood was called upon and came back into the game for the ninth inning, to close it out for the second day in a row. It was the fifth straight victory for the Sox and 11 of the 16 played on this trip. Hal Janvrin left the team to go
back to Boston. Jack Barry id about ready to come back and was out for practice. The Sox have 15 more games out west this season and 32 with the same teams at Fenway.
