“DIARY OF A WINNER”


 

EVERETT SCOTT

BACK-TO-BACK WORLD SERIES CHAMPS
Squeeze play wins it in the 10th inning

September 27, 1916 ... The Champion Red Sox nailed up another important victory by a 3 to 2 score in a 10 inning thriller over the Yankees at Fenway Park.  The home team was forced to.fight every inch of the way, but the Sox took care of business just as they have been doing this past month.

Ernie Shore was excellent and his support was top notch from Everett Scott, Duffy Lewis, Hal Janvrin and Larry Gardner.  The work of Scott was remarkable.  He saved the day in the seventh inning when, with two men on and nobody out, he grabbed a tough grounder behind second  base, stepped on the bag and threw off balance to get Joe Gedeon at first for the doubleplay.

Harry Hooper started the game with a three base wallop and scored on a wild pitch.  After the first inning Urban Shocker got the Sox down in almost every inning.  In the ninth inning the Sox were running smooth with the lead, but the Yankees led off with Roger Peckinpaugh beating out a slow grounder to Hal Janvrin.  Wally Pipp then grounded out with Peckinpauigh taking second.  Frank Baker came up and nailed a single to center to score Peck,  tying up the game.

But the Yankees couldn't hold the Sox.  Carl Mays and Harry Hooper drew passes to lead off the 10th.  Janvrin sacrificed and Tilly Walker was intentionally passed to load the bases.  Mike McNally ran for Mays and Dick Hoblitzell laid down the bunt as McNally headed for home to score the winning run on the suicide squeeze.  The Sox number to clinch is now "three" as the White Sox were idle.

John Killeen, chairman of the Royal Rooters, announced plans relative to the World Series.  If Brooklyn wins the National League, the Rooters will leave Boston, the day before on a special train at noon and arriving in New York at 6PM.  The rate to Brooklyn, including round trip transportation to the park and grandstand seats for five games, will be $37
