1915 World Series Revisited Phillies vs Red Sox Game #3

10/11/1915 @Braves Field

Pete Alexander vs Dutch Leonard

Phillies Rally Late To Edge Red Sox 

Dave “Beauty” Bancroft was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1971

Red Sox starter Dutch Leonard took a 5 hitter and a 3-1 lead into the 9th inning, but after Fred Luderus flew out to start the inning the Phillies bats came alive. Possum Whitted, Bert Niehoff, and Ed Burns all stroked line drive singles t0 make the score 3-2, and send Leonard to the showers. Smoky Joe Wood came on in relief and immediately gave up a game tying single to Bill Killefer.  Beauty Bancroft’s single put the Phillies up 4-3.

In the last of the 9th the Red Sox made it interesting when Jack Barry, and pinch hitter Babe Ruth opened up the inning with base hits. Smoky Joe Wood laid down a sacrifice to put runners on 2nd and 3rd with just 1 out. Harry Hooper was walked intentionally to load the bases. With the infield in, Everett Scott grounded to Bancroft at shortstop, forcing Jack Barry at home. With 2 outs Tris Speaker smashed a drive ticketed for left centerfield, but Dode Paskert made a nice running catch to end the game.

The Phillies lead this series 2-1.
