Chief Bender cruises to his second victory‚ a 4-hit 13-2 breeze. The A's cap the win with a 7-run 7th‚ battering three tired Giant hurlers‚ Red Ames‚ Hooks Wiltse‚ and Rube Marquard. Danny Murphy has four hits as the A's beat the New York Giants, to win the World Series in six games. Overall‚ the Giants manage just 13 runs and a .175 BA off BenderJack Coombs‚ and Eddie Plank.
