After a disastrous western trip, the Giants trail the Pirates by three as the leaders come to the Polo Grounds for a 5-game series. Before crowds of more than 50,000 at two weekend doubleheaders, the Pirates take three out of 4. On Monday they beat Wayland Dean 9-2, and the NL race is over. When the Giants go west again, McGraw will stay home. The Pirates boast a team BA of .307 and a deep pitching staff of five pitchers winning 15 to 19 games.
