behind' the Giants' bench wondered If

The crowd filled the unreserved stand

Athletic Femo Confident,,
Now that two of tho New York pitch
era have felt defeat at the hands of the
Athletics, Philadelphia fans feel more
comfortable and were confident that tho
home team would triumph today. The
victory yesterday of 'Bush, Connie Mack's
youthful .twlrltr. over the veteran, Tes

the final result cf the eerles.
Last ovenlng another big throng gath
ered at Shlbe Park to wait in line all
njght for the bleacher gates to open this
morning. It was an even larger orowd
than that which waited In tho rain for
Wednesday's game, due, perhaps, to the
'improvement In the weather,
Many ot the Athletics adherents be-
i Uoved .that Shawkey would be the pitch
ing' choice of the White Elephants' man
ager and figured that he would be equally
as puzsllng to the Giant batters as was
Bush yesterday. Bender, however, was
anxious, to go in and there was 4 strong
possibility that his w)sh might be grati
fied. Athletics Stnr at Bat.
The. Athletics have now Vaced the pitch
ing of Mathewson, Marquard, Crandall
and Tesreau, three of whom are the pick
of New York's twirling staff, while tho
Giants have batted against Bender, Plank
and Bush. Each ot the Philadelphia
pitchers finished his game without as
sistance, but if the New York mounds
men .only Mathewson, winner of the ten-
Jnntng victory against Plank, completed

Graw has Demaree, but neither man
ager has given any Intimation who would
"The resuty ot yesterday's game bore
out my claim that we had young pitch
on who could be compared to any of the
Giants' staff." said the Athletic manager.
"Of course, a club that Is equipped
with hitters does not have to depend so
much on good pitchers to win. Mathew
son twirled a wonderful game against
us, but I don't think one pitcher can
win a world's series.
"The other Ditchers In our younger set
are Just as eager to show In the series.
Bush was actually disappointed because
he had a three-tun lead when he went
In the box yesterday. 'Any one could
win this kind of a game,' he said, That's
the kind of material I have on the pitch
Jng staff. It's alt I can do to keep them
on the bench." -
Manager McrGaw appeared not at all
dismayed and declared his men had just
begun to fight. Mathewson probably
would be ready 'to pitch again In New
York tomorrow and is Uk-ely to be op
posed by one ot Mack's youngsters, in
case Bender was Hack's choice today.
