Doc Gessler (BOS) is the batter with an 0-2 count. Failing twice to sacrifice bunt, he hit squarely a liner hard and low to the SS (Les Tannehill) who mitted it a

couple of inches from the ground (OUT 1)

SS, continuing his motion toward second, stepped on the bag to double up the runner from second, Harry Lord, who had started off at top speed when the ball

was hit (OUT 2)

SS, had he cared to risk it, might have run up the line and tagged the runner from first, Tris Speaker, for an unassisted triple play, but instead chose the sure

play and tossed to the 1B (Frank Isbell) for the putout (OUT 3)

3B shot the ball across the diamond to the 1B (Harry Davis) who putout the runner from first, Neal Ball, who had no chance to regain his station (OUT 3)
