The World Series ends with St. Louis getting its 2nd "consolation" victory in a row. The Browns choose to bat first at home. Tip O'Neill‚ who was just 5-for-29 in the first 8 games‚ hits a bases-loaded HR in today's 18-7 romp after having won yesterday's 14-11 contest with a 3-run HR in the 10th inning. Tommy McCarthy also homers for St. Louis‚ off Cannonball Titcomb‚ the Giants starter. Cannonball allows 6 runs‚ half earned‚ in 4 innings. Utility infielder Gil Hatfield throws the final 5 innings‚ allowing 12 runs‚ including the grand slam. He'll return to the mound next season.
