back (OUT 2)

Crawford) wandered toward second as the CF's throw went to the C (Steve O'Neill)

C saw Crawford wander so nonchalantly that he threw to the 2B (Ray Chapman) to him head off. That brought about another bluff toward the plate by Cobb. Back

 to the C the ball came and O'Neill tried to run down Cobb but Ty slid safely into third.

But, Crawford was at third and Sam then ambled back to second only to be retired by a toss from the C to 3B (Terry Turner) to the 2B. (OUT 2)  Cobb broke for

home and the 2B throw to the C nailed him at the plate (OUT 3)
