In New York, Babe Ruth clouts two consecutive home runs (numbers 19 and 20) off Garland Buckeye, but in his next time up Ruth is set upon by Cleveland C Luke Sewell who demands that the umpires inspect the Bambino's bat. The umps find nothing illegal, but the crowd of 30,000 cheer the Babe, who strikes out. Lazzeri adds a homer and New York wins, 6–4. Burns is 3-for-3 with two doubles for the Tribe.

Bobby Thomson starts the scoring with a triple and a steal of home in the 1st.
