PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 8. Grover
Cleveland Alexander won his game
from the Boston Tied ' Sox today, "but

Philadelphia Nationals had predicted.
The breaks of the game were with

of the diamonds by a Philadelphia bats
man. It has been predicted the short
outfield would prove the winning fac
tor for the locals in their own little
park out on Broad street, but contrary
to all expectations it was the infield,
wet and heavy from 15 hours of rain,
that turned the tide in their favor." '
Game In Mediocre Obm
It . was a mediocre ball frame this
first of the big series for, despite the
few errors of commission, there were
several of omission, and two or three
plays which will go down in baseball
history as tinged with an Ivory hue.
Strangely enough, it was the Red Sox,
veterans in battling for the highest
honors of the game, who were guilty
of the slips, although offending in
dividuals were new members of the
Big "Hobby" Hoblitzel. first-base
guardian for the Sox, ignominlously
ended a firat-inning attack by his
teammates when he calmly lapsed into
slumberland off his home station and
was caught almost flat-footed by a
quick toss from Alexander to Luderus
for the third out. Hooper was on third
base at the time and Lewis was at
bat. When he was given his delayed
chance In the second inning, Lewis
shot a stinging single between short
This play hurt the chances of the Sox
materially, but it was in the eighth
Inning that the game was tossed away
beyond all hope of recall when young
Scott, at short for the visitors, stood
transfixed as he watched Barry make
a wonderful stop of a drive from Ban
croft, and was so completely overcome
by the seemingly miraculous play that
he forgot all about covering second
base, allowing Stock, who had walked,
to pull up safely at that station and
giving Bancroft one of the five strange
hits scored off Iprnest Shore.
Shore Twirls Great Came.
This young twirler ("Longshore,"
they call him in Boston) pitched a
.'splendid game, but all the luck, was
against him. The "break," which
went the way of the Phillies, seemed to
upset him at times and his fielding
But Shore had a fast ball with a hop
on it that was a par with the best
Alexander had to offer. Against the
five freak hits which he allowed,
Alexander was hit safely eight times,
each of the blows being a line drive
to the outfield. There was not an
extra base in any of them, however,
and no two came in the same Inning.
Three times during the game the first
Rt:d Sox batter to face big "Alex"
tore off a screaming single, only to re
main stranded somewhere between
first and third.
Alexander felt the strain that the
confidence of the National League ad
herents had placed upon him and dur
ing the first three innings of the game
plainly was nervous. In two of these
innings serious trouble threatened
him. Shore gave the Phillies' star a
fiirht from the time play was called
until the last man was out.
(ante Often Huns In Balance.
Four or five times the game hung
In the balance. With the score a tie
in the first half of the eighth and
with Lewis on second base. Gardner, of
the Red Sox, smashed into one of Alex
ander's fast-breaking outcurves for a
drive which seemed far out of reach
of any of the Philadelphia outfield. But
"Dode" Paskert started after it from
center field and made a spectacular
catch while running at full speed. The
play brought the big crowd to its feet
Hnd undoubtedly saved the game for
the National League contestants.
This play and the wonderful stop by
Barry back of second base, which
hypnotized young Scott into a lapse of
unconsciousness that paved the way for
the winning tallies were the fielding
features of the game.
That the game was regarded largely
. as a freak episode in . world-series
baseball is shown tonight by the fact

PHILADELPHIA, Oct- 8. (Special.)
The god of battle, according to Na
poleon, goes with the die that carries
the heaviest artillery.
This theory may operate perfectly
in the red game of war, but it doesn't
always go in baseball. In the world's
series opener, the Red Sox assaulted
Alexander for eight old-fashioned hits,
the kind that streak their way to safety
on a line. The Phillies drove but one
base hit beyond the infield with Shore
firing from the mound, yet at dusk Fri
day the tidings had traveled around
through the social circle of St. Paul.
Neb., that the score stood as follows:
Alexander 3, Boston 1, and St. Paul's

radiant in color as a flash of the North

to the non-combatant who comes from

championship of the fairly well-known
universe was bereft of color, even
to the point of being drab.

It was bereft of color because Alex

his best, and because most of the pre

There wan no upset to the doDe

there was an upset attached to the way
things came about, for the Red Sox
hit Alexander harder than the Phillies
hit Shore. But for all that, the big
Philly star pitched the better game,
and for all those soft skidding In
field taps the Phillies deserved to win.
They deserved to win because brain
