Wednesday, October 9, 1912 World Series - Game 2

Fenway Park. Ray on the mound, loosening up.
(This appears to be pre-game, judging by the amount of fans in the stands.)
 With Ray on the mound the Giants have a man on third
and the Sox defense pulled in.

Ray started against Giants Ace Christy Mathewson and pitched well for
the first 7 innings. In the eighth with 1 out and runners on 1st and 3rd
Ray gave up a ground rule double. Coach Hall replaced him with the Sox
up 4-3 and runners on 2nd and 3rd. In total Ray gave up 5 runs, 3 earned
with 5 Ks and no BB in 7.1 innings. The game was called due to darkness
after 2:38 in an 11 inning 6-6 tie.

Ray also pitched 7 shut-out innings of relief in Game 6 at the Polo Grounds.
He only gave up 5 hits and no BB but the Sox couldn't rally back
and ended up losing 5-2.

editors note: On the back of each photo is written
"World Series Champions - Fall 1912"
I am taking a leap of faith that these are from World Series game 2.
