The Washington Senators win the only championship in franchise history. The Senators defeat the New York Giants, 4-3, in 12 innings. The winning run scores when a ball hit by Earl McNeely hits a pebble and bounces over third baseman Fred Lindstrom's head. Future Hall of Famer Walter Johnson, the greatest pitcher in team history, picks up the win in relief.
