Victory, sweet victory, perched on the banner of the New York National League champions yesterday afternoon at Fenway Park. The score was 2 to 1, and now the Boston Red Sox and New York Giants are tied in the World’s Series, at one victory apiece.

The finish of the game was even more sensational than was the hair-raising close finish of the first game at New York, where Boston pulled out at the last ditch.
