WORLD CHAMPS AGAIN
The Red Sox romp in the first game,
but the Browns manage a split
July 24, 1915
The Red Sox split with the Browns, with the Speed Boys winning the first game easily by a 7 to 3 score and losing the nite cap in the last inning 3 to 2 on a bad fumble by Jack Barry in the ninth inning. Ernie Shore and Carl Weiman had a real pitchers battle
going into the last frame. Joe Wood made another relief appearance to try and bail out Shore. With one out in the eighth Bert Shotton was safe at first base when Shore failed to cover the base on a ground ball to Del Gainor. Shore was obviously upset and balked Shotton to
second. Wood them came in to relieve the shaken Shore and allowed Ivan Howard to single in Shotton and tie up the game. Then in the ninth Tilly Walker got walked. George Sisler hit a taylor-made doubleplay ball to Jack Barry that he muffed. Doc Lavan sacrificed the
runners to second and third, with Sam Agnew hitting the long fly to Speaker that allowed Walker to tag up and score the winning run.
In the first game Harry Hooper led off with a triple and scored on Tris Speaker's ground out. The Sox got three more in the third thanks to Speaker's triple, two in the fifth, and one in the seventh. So far in this trip the Sox have played 19 games and
averaged 10 hits per game. Manager Bill Carrigan sent Joe Wood, Rube Foster, and Ernie Shore back to Boston after the game to rest up.
