“DIARY OF A WINNER”


 

WORLD CHAMPS AGAIN
The Red Sox are given the game by
St. Louis as the Tigers take two
from Washington

September 25, 1915 ... The Red Sox were forced to the limit by the scrappy young Browns.  A large slice of good luck pushed the Sox out of the corner in the eighth inning when they scored two runs to take the lead and ultimately the win.  Rube Foster was hit by visitors but his fielding support saved him from getting into a lot of trouble.  In the sixth inning he grew careless and with two down, he walked two men.  Doc Lavan, a weak hitter, but a game kid, caught one and sent it past Harry Hooper for a double and 2 RBI, putting the Brownies up a run.  The scoreboard showed that Detroit was in the process of taking two from Washington and it must have woken up the Red Sox, because they came back in the eighth.  Hick Cady and Foster reached base, and Hooper moved them up with a sacrifice.  Everett Scott, who was being implored on by the fans, to bring in the run swung and missed at the third strike on a low ball.  Fortunately the ball skipped by the catcher and Scott beat it to first base, as Hal Janvrin, who was running for Cady, came in with the tying run.  Del Gainor then hoisted a fly to center field and Foster tagged up.  Walker's throw to the plate was up the third base line and the Sox were ahead again.  Earl Hamilton pitched a sound game but lost out.  He failed to win any games against the Red Sox this season.
