behind Shore lose the game for the Sox
September 14, 1916 ...
The two branches of the error family, commission an omission were there for the Red Sox at Sportsman's Park and proved to be one of the reasons the Sox lost 6 to 1. Hal Janvrin threw the game away when he dropped a pop up and making a wild peg to first
base, giving the Brownies a three run gift. In the first inning a pop fly also dropped between Janny and Everett Scott, allowing the Browns to score their first run. In the seventh Tilly Walker failed to hold on to a line drip, giving St. Louis two more runs.
But they were not the only culprits. One of the prize bone head plays of the game was put over by Bill Carrigan himself. Since Larry Gardner has been out of the lineup, Everett Scott has been batting sixth and Mike McNally seventh. Today when
the lineup card was given to home plate umpire Bill Dineen, McNally's name was ahead of Scott's. In the second inning, Scott batted ahead of McNally unnoticed. In the fourth McNally, batting after Scott, slammed a single to left, putting Duffy Lewis safely on third base.
The Browns noticed the mistake and McNally was called out. Eddie Plank pitched a stingy game for the Browns, giving up one run in the first inning, but shutting down Sox batters after that.
