Already the funj that illlod every seat In tho stands and bleachcis were exulting In the downfall of the New York club. Bender, confident In the biff lead of his club, was pitching consistent ball, and there was not a single danger slgnul In sight. Suddenly the UiantH became transformed from hltlesfi weuklinns to real giants, who hammered the speed and slants of the Indian twirler to all parts of the It was In the "lucky seventh" hatt the storm of hits burst upon the astonished Athletics, and before the aborlglnee and his fellow players could recover, three Giants had crossed the pluto and the fusllade continued into the next session, hen two mure scored, and the team which whs but a few moments before apparently outclassed, was battering down the last defences of the Mack men. Fred Merkle, whose injured ankle still caused him to limp percenptlbly. was the player who was directly responsible for the breaking through oi the coat of whitewash that Bender was applying so artistically. MERKLES HOMER With Burns and Murray on second and third as the result of two singles and a double steal, and two out, Mer-lo caught one of Bender's low balls on tho outside corner of the plate and lifted It far out Into left centre, where neither Oldring nor Strunk could quite reach II. The sphere hit the green turf oi Shibe park, and with a mighty bound hopped the fence Into the bleachers, and Merkle trotted home after his two teum-mates with the third home run of the series, thus Joining Baker and Sehang in the roll of baseball Immortals. Spurred on by Meikle's example, l-rzofr, who had not made a hit In the series to date, opened the eighth with a single, only to be forced by Doyle, who was similarly eliminated bv Fletcher. Burns came through with a double down the third base line, scoring Fletcher, and Shafer shot a triple past first, tallying Burns. Murray smashed a scorching drive at Collins, but the Columbia boy managed to hold the ball until he could steady himself and throw the'runner out at tlrst for the third out. Although McGra' sent two pinch hitlers to bat In the ninth the Oiunts could not get over the run that would have tied the score for Bender wan now fully aware what beset him anu his team mutes and pitched a ball Hint fairly whistled lis It flashed and broke across tho plate.

They are smoked all ovrr thu wurl.l THE GREATEST CHRISTY MATHEWSON Johrr McGrsw's only hope in today's game. Can ha stop the AthletlcsT He is the only Giant pitcher to finish a game in the series. 1 Giants would now be on even terms with the I'hlladelphians Instead of railing two (tames In the rear of the American leuguers. The sully was effective, however, in that It encouraged the. men of Mcliraw to believe that they might yet uvertako the flying Athletics. The probabilities aro much against such a feat hut the Giants are preparing; for a lust stand at the Polo grounds today and claim that If they can once Ret going they will yet win the series. All tho rlrciimstances point In the opposite direction, however, for the Mack men, with a record of thrco victories out of four games are now well versed In the ability and resources oX the Giants. When they drove Demaree from the box ut the end of the fourth InninK, after four runs had been scored from his delivery. It marked the passing of every New York pitcher, except the veteran, Christy Mathewsnn. in four games Marquard, t'randall, Tesreau and Ie-maree have all fallen hefor ih. ferritin hitting of the heavy hatting Athletics. only Mathewsnn in' his wonderful exhibition of Wednesday, when he shut them out, has been able to hold tho American league pennant winners in check. WEAKLING SLUGGERS As If to show the versatility of the team It was a new quartette of hatters who bombarded Demaree from the mound this afternoon, and also gave Marquard, in his come-back rote, a taste of their ability. Whereas in tho Hist three games Murphy, Aldring, Collins and Maker did the brunt of tho stick work, It was tho lower half of tho batting order that sprang Into the breach when tho leaders faltered In their stick work. Seven of the nine hits recorded off' the Giant twlrlors were made by Mclnnls, Strunk, Barry und Schang. This fluartette also scored all six runs that were credited to the men. Of the upper half only Oldring was able to get his bat on the ball sufely. Barry mado three hits in four times ai bat, two of them being doubles. Schang did even greater execution, gettlnrc two lilts and two bases on balls In lour times up. His hits scored four runs and ho crossed the plate himself, with another. Oldring, who has made a sate hit the first time up, in every game of the series, earned the honor of the longest hit made by the Athletics yesterday when ho tripled in the opening Inning on tho first ball that Demaree served up. BENDER'S FINE FORM It was not alone by batting that the Athletics won, however, for both their Holding and Bender's clever pitching were factors that helped to bring victory. Tho Indian twlrler waa at the top of his form, except In the seventh and eighth Innings, being steady and having absolute control of his breaks and curves. He gave but one on balls and hit one batter. The Giants garnered but two hits oft his delivery until the seventh, and their sum total was eight, while he funned five as a sort of retaliation, 1 lender was in trouble In the fifth Inning when he walked Murray and McLean singled. McGraw sent Cooper In to run for McLean and McCormick to bat in place of Demaree, who waa already marked for the bench. promptly lifted a humming liner over Harry's head that was labelled a hit. oldring came in sprinting lit top Fpepd, and with long, low dive scooped the ball off tho grass tolas spectacular a catch as has been witnessed for many a month. With two out McGruw ordered Cooper to try to reach second, but Schang shot the ball to Collins like a rltle bullet, and Cooper, fast runner us he la, lost out by five feet. It was but another demonstration of the heights to which the Athletics can rise when occasion demands. For the Giants Burns made two hits, one a double, while Lurry McLeain singled twice In two times at bat. DEMAREE NO MYSTERY The New York club uocd sixteen plajers against the Athletics' nine, and had four left on the bases to the Mackmen's seven. Demaree was not much of a problem to tlio American league champions, who secured seven hits In four innings, but Marquard, after his weak opening In the filth, tightened up, and pitched high class bull, the Athletics going out In rapid fire order. The came was played under the most favorable weather conditions of the series 10 ilate, the sun frequently shining through rli'U in the cloudj, and on a field tumparalhely dry und fast. At least 5,000 spectators watched th pluy from the housetops overlooking the park.

Barry claimed that Merkle interfered with him as he rounded first base, but the claim wus not allowed, Hchang walked after Demaree had two strikes on him.
