IN THE NEWS: The Cubs score one run in the 9th against Christy Mathewson to tie the score at 1–1, then push across the winner in the 11th to beat the Giants, 2–1. Chick Fraser and Carl Lundgren allow just two Giant safeties in 11 frames.
IN THE NEWS: In the last game of the year for the Athletics hurler Rube Vickers hurls a 5-inning 4–0 perfect game against Washington. He also wins the 15-inning first game of the twin bill, 4–2, with a spectacular 12-inning relief effort. The two wins are the only ones for Vickers this year. Starter Charlie Fritz falter after three innings and Rube Waddell tosses just one pitch, hit for a single. It is Waddell's last pitch for the A's as Mack will pedal Rube to the Browns over the winter.
IN THE NEWS: The Tigers have game one of the World Series against the Cubs in their grasp—or in C Charlie Schmidt's glove—but it gets away from them. Leading 3–2 in the 9th, Bill Donovan faces pinch hitter Del Howard with 2 on and 2 outs. He fans Howard, but the ball gets away from Schmidt, and the tying run scores. Darkness ends the game after 12 innings.
IN THE NEWS: In game 2, the Tigers score just once against Chicago’s Jack Pfiester and lose 3–1. They will not score more than once in any of the remaining games in the WS. The Tigers take advantage of the aggressive baserunning of Jimmy Slagle by nabbing him in the first inning with a hidden ball trick, the only one in WS history. Yesterday, Slagle had two steals and was caught stealing once. The play goes Germany Schaefer to Bill Coughlin (according to Bill Deane). Slagle redeems himself in the 4th by driving in the go-ahead run and then scoring on Jimmy Sheckard's double.
