Carl MaysAfter clinching the pennant with a 5-3 win over Philadelphia in the opener behind Carl Mays' 17th straight win over Philadelphia‚ the Yankees bring Babe Ruth into pitch in relief in the night cap. Ruth‚ with just one other pitching appearance all season‚ takes over in the 8th with New York in the lead 6-0. Ruth quickly allows the A's 6 runs to tie the score‚ but then knuckles down to hold them scoreless to the 11th when New York scores a run to win‚ 7-6. Ruth drives in his 167th run in the game‚ besting Sam Thompson's mark set in 1884. For Mays‚ it is his 7th straight win over Phillies this season.
