WORLD CHAMPS AGAIN
The Tigers pull it out in the 12th
August 26, 1915
The Tigers pulled out one game in the series in the 12th inning. They gave Rube Foster a good lacing in the fourth inning, good for four runs and with the formidable Hooks Dauss pitching it seemed unlikely that the Red Sox had any chance of
pulling out the game. Dauss was hit hard, but he got away with things by luck. Then down 5-2 in the ninth inning, the Sox staged a rally, catching the Tigers and passing them. Duffy Lewis started it with a single, followed by Olaf Henriksen who shot a single to left. Pinch
Thomas then hit a grounder that Ralph Young threw away, allowing them both to score. Babe Ruth then came up to pinch hit and lined one to Cobb that he muffed, allowing Thomas to score the tying ruin and letting Ruth get to third base. Hooper put the Sox in the lead by singling home
Dutch Leonard took over for Foster in the bottom of the ninth, but couldn't keep the Tigers from tying up the game, allowing Sam Crawford to drive home the run with two men down. Then in the 12th inning, Cobb smoked a single to right, took second on a
sacrifice, and scored on Bobby Veach's walk-off smash to left field.
