WORLD CHAMPS AGAIN
The Red Sox clean up on the Indians
September 23, 1915
The Indians lost two games and now have not won a single game in Boston this year. Joe Wood made an appearance after a long rest and displayed much of his old form for six innings. He was hit hard in the seventh inning and retired in place
of Carl Mays for the last two innings. Joe had very little speed and used curves and control to work the corners of the plate. Except for a fluke hit by Fritz Clumbe, he would have easily finished the game. The Sox had a two run lead at the time and that was cut to one run
resulting from an error by Larry Gardner. The Sox got that run back in the bottom of the inning and eventually won out 5 to 4.
In the second game Bill Carrigan called on Ernie Shore, and he pitched an easy game because his batters gave him an early lead. In the fourth inning, with 5-0 lead, Braggo Roth nailed a Shore pitch over the left field wall onto Lansdowne Street for one of the
two runs he surrendered. The Sox hit for multiple extra base hits in the game, with Shore, himself, driving home two runs in the second inning with a nice double. In the first inning Tris Speaker doubled and scored on Hobby's smashing drive that went to the right field fence for a
home run. In the second inning, Larry Gardner opened with a triple down the right field line before Shore's double. The Indians put up four scrappy games and didn't kick about umpire calls, delaying the games, as was evidenced in the Detroit and Chicago series.
