WORLD CHAMPS AGAIN
Red Sox cruise through a doubleheader
October 2, 1915
The champion Red Sox played a doubleheader with the Nationals in Washington. The Red Sox players did play as if they cared whether they won or not, with little pepper. The played as if the games were just a workout with little significance.
The first game they lost 3 to 1, and the second game ended in a 3-3 tie. The Nats were never in danger as Walter Johnson was in rare good for, while Joe Wood lacked his good stuff to cut off timely hits. He had little speed and depended on curves and guile to keep hitters off
balance. Of the seven hits, only two were hard drives.
The Red Sox left for New York on the 7:00 train. They are scheduled to play five games and it is a sure bet that Bill Carrigan will play them to get in fighting shape and not slack off.
