WORLD CHAMPS AGAIN
The Red Sox lose first place
after losing to Chicago
August 19, 1915
The Red Sox were not fighting hard and the White Sox took advantage of everything handed to them, in beating the Red Sox 2 to 1 at Comiskey Park. All three runs scored by both teams, were the result of poor fielding. Red Faber was on the
mound for Chicago, and unlike Rube Foster, was able to pitch out of the bad breaks handed to him. The Red Sox hitters were not able to come through in the clutch. As an example, Jack Barry had a man at third and nobody out at in the third and struck out. He again had the same
situation in the ninth and failed. Chicago scored their first run when Foster and Dick Hoblitzell got mixed up on Nemo Leibold's ground ball. The second, and winning run, came when Foster passed Shano Collins, and a throw into center by Pinch Thomas on his attempted stolen base.
The home team saved the game for Faber with outstanding glove work from Eddie Collins and Happy Felsch. With the Tigers beating Philadelphia, the Red Sox are now 1/2 game behind Detroit.
