JACK BARRY

GAMBLING WITH HARRY FRAZEE ...
The Sox win both ends of a Yankee doubleheader

June 28, 1917 ... The Red Sox put the squeeze and a variety of other things on the New York Yankees, winning both ends of a doubleheader 3 to 2 and 5 to 0 at Fenway Park. Dutch Leonard and Herb Pennock both turned in good performances for manager Jack Barry.

For the Yankees, Lee Magee knocked out five hits. In the second game Sox catcher Sam Agnew caught superbly, drove in the first run and gave a grand all around exhibition of baseball.

A squeeze play, which produced a run for the Red Sox in the first inning of the opener started when Harry Hooper singling to right field, taking second on a sacrifice and third when Dick Hoblitzell and Larry Gardner were both walked to load the bases. Hooper scored on Duffy Lewis's bunt ground out to Wally Pipp, but he trapped Hobby between third and home.

In the fourth inning Hobby singled to left and Gardner walked. Duffy Lewis laid down a sacrifice bunt but all runners were ruled safe when Yankee catcher Les Nunamaker failed to get Hobby at third. Tilly Walker then flied out to Elmer Miller in center field scoring Hobby when Nunamaker dropped his throw to home. That made the score 3 to 0 in favor of the Sox.

For the rest of the game Yankee starter Ray Fisher put down the Sox batters in order. The Yankees did not reach second until the sixth inning, when Dutch gave up two free passes, but in the seventh they got a man to third on singles by Nunamaker and Fisher. Yankees finally scored in the eighth, after Magee singled and went to third on Paddy Baumann's double. Frank Baker slammed one into center field that scored both the runners, but Dutch buckled down to end the inning and get the Yankees in the ninth, giving the Sox a 3 to 2 win.

In the second game the Sox piled on two runs in the second inning when Duffy Lewis opened with a single and advanced on Tilly Walker sacrifice. Scotty reached first safely on a bunt scoring Duffy. He reached third on Sam Agnew's double. Herb Pennock grounded to Fritz Maisel and the Yankees tried to run down Scotty between third and home, but he scored when Frank Baker muffed the toss to him.

The Sox added one more run in the fourth and two in the eighth to make the final 5 to 0. Pennock did some great pitching in the second game when the Yankees had men on first and third in the sixth inning. He was always cool, and fanned Wally Pipp for the second time.
