In the first City Series between the Chicago White Sox and the Chicago Nationals‚ Jack Taylor shuts out the Sox‚ 11-0‚ on 3 hits at the West Side Grounds. The Colts win the next 2 games‚ but Taylor will lose his next three starts and the series will end tied at 7 apiece on October 15. Sox owner Charles Comiskey is willing to play it out but the Colts Jim Hart is not (according to historian Benton Stark). Hart is convinced that Taylor lost his games deliberately for money and will trade the star in 2 months.
