1912... 

Continuing our recap of the Red Sox five world series victories ... The 1912 series, like the 1903 series, had eight games due to a 6-6 tie in Game 2 called due to darkness: The Red Sox Tris Speaker nearly won the game on an inside-the-park home run, but had to settle for a triple. The series matched the Red Sox against the New York Giants, who had lost the 1911 series 4-2 to the Philadelphia A's.

The Red Sox won three of the first four decided games. Every game was close: 4-3, 3-1, 2-1, & 2-1 ... Down 3-1 and facing elimination, the Giants rallied for big wins in games six & seven, but in game eight they fell apart. Tied at 1-1, the Giants scored and went ahead 2-1 at the top of the tenth inning. Centerfielder Fred Snodgrass dropped a routine flyball, putting the tying run on second base. After a walk, Tris Speaker singled to tie the score at 2-2. A sacrifice fly would score the series winning run, giving the Red Sox a miraculous 4-3 series victory. The Red Sox won despite being out-scored 31-25 and out-hit .220 to .270 ...

The fact that a defensive miscue gave the Red Sox a World Series is ironic, given the fact that the Red Sox committed eight errors in the first two games of the 2004 World Series.

I'll have an update later on today giving my thoughts on tonight's Game Three.

I was just browsing various blogs as I was doing a search on the word poster, and I just wanted to say that I really like what you've done with your blog, even though it wasn't particularly related to what I searched for. I appreciate your postings, and your blog is a good example of how a blog should be done. I've only just recently started a Posters website - feel free to visit it when you get a chance if you wish. Much success, antonio.
