WORLD CHAMPS AGAIN
The Red Sox sweep the Browns
with Foster and Leonard
August 22, 1915
The Boston Red Sox won both ends of a doubleheader to gain valuable ground against the Tigers. The first game pitted Rube Foster against young Ernie Koob in a total mismatch. The Sox walked all over Koob and the Browns, with Foster the master of the
stage, allowing only one run, which came in the ninth inning, the result of a fumbled ground ball. The Red Sox scored a run in the first inning on a wild pitch. In the third inning, three runs were put up. Harry Hooper doubled and went to third on Ev Scott's
grounder. Duffy Lewis shot on to left scoring both the runners. In the eight, Sam Agnew threw the ball into center field while trying to get Tris Speaker at second on Del Gainor's sacrifice bunt.
In the second game Dutch Leonard tamed St. Louis with fourteen strikeouts. Except for Burt Shotton, he struck out every man at least once. The Sox were not clutch and if not for Leonard could have been beaten. Three times they had a runner on third
base and couldn't score him. Harry Hooper was the offensive star of the day, playing well and was a factor in the Sox winning both games.
