The Yankees turn the Sox back in ten innings
September 28, 1916 ...
The rush toward the pennant was momentarily stopped by the Yankees at Fenway Park, by a 4 to 2 score in 10 innings. More than 10,000 fans saw the home team hold the lead until the eighth inning, when New York tied the score, and win it outright in the
10th inning. The White Sox did not play and the number to clinch remains at "three"
With the exception of Everett Scott and Larry Gardner, who made two great defensive plays, the Sox had little fight. Tilly Walker made two bad fumbles in center field, the second one allowing the winning run to score.
The Sox scored in the first inning when Hal Janvrin hit a double, went to third on an out and scored on a passed ball. Harry Hooper scored Boston's second run in the third inning, but the Sox never got a man past second base after that. Carl Mays
shut out the Yankees without a hit for four innings, but in the fifth Wally Pipp doubled and scored, and in the eighth Roxy Walters doubled and scored on Lee Magee's base hit to tie the game. In the 10th four straight hits gave the Yankees the win.
President Lannin announced the price for the 25c bleacher seats will go up to 50c for the World Series.
