DATE (June 29, 1912) ...
The Red Sox merrily galloped away with two more games from the Highland
Yankees of New York, hammering bunches of runs across the plate for a 13
to 6 win in the opening game, and then doing some splendid hitting to win
the second game by a score of 6 to 0 behind's superb pitching of Joe Wood.
New York was never really in either game, although after Red Sox had
secured a 9 to 0 lead in the opener, New York did some hard-hitting
against Buck O'Brien, who had been pitching a little unsteady anyway.
The second game belonged to Wood all the way. He not only shut the Highlanders
out, but during the seven innings played before umpire Silk O'Loughlin wisely
called the game, because of darkness, Wood allowed New York only one hit. In
fact in this game, not a New York baserunner reached second base and of the six
players who made it to first, two were thrown out by Hick Cady's good right arm,
when they tried to steal second. Three of the other men were beaten to second
base by well plated defense or force outs.
In a strange set of circumstances,
Hick Cady makes two hits in one at bat. His single scored Jake Stahl from third base, but umpire Silk O'Loughlin rules that Stahl was
balked home by pitcher Tommy Thompson. In Cady's second chance, he doubled off the left field wall.
