Malone and after Wally French,

out. The Cubs had driven the hero
of the first game, Howard Ehmke,
out of the box in the fourth in

same one with which he belted his
trick homer to center in Satur

Wilson lost In the sun. The first
pitch came in, a "high hard" one

In a few moments, all of Ma
lone's great pitching, all the fine
defensive work of the Cubs had
been offset. No sun could take
away any of the lustre of that
wallop. It was a man sized home
run and pandemonium was loose
as Bishop and Haas trotted
around the bases.
Mickey Cochrane grounded out
to Hornsby for the second out,
but Al Simmons, wh'o led the big
parade Saturday, again proved
himself a great batter in the pinch.
He smashed one to the scoreboard
for two bases and the winning
run was only a few strides from
the plate. Cub strategy dictated an
intentional pass to Jimmy Foxx,
despite the fact that Jimmy Foxx,

Insult Fails to
Bing, If he felt any resentment
over this implied reflection on his
ability, stood nonchalantly at the
plate as he let four go by, two
balls and two strikes. Malone was
pitching cautiously, working the
corners, but Miller was now ready
for business. The veteran outfield
er swung on the next ball, a fast
one waist high, and sent It on a
line between Cuyler and Wilson.
From the moment it left bat there
was not the slightest doubt of its
decisiveness. It was officially rec
orded as a two base hit but there
was not even an attempt to make
a play for Simmons, who almost
had to fight his way through
wildly excited team mates who
rushed out to escort him in with
the winning run.
With this flourishing finish, the
Athletics once again lifted the
American League banner to the
peak for the third consecutive
year, with a more dramatic if not
quite as decisive a touch as did
the Yankees in scoring their clean
sweeps of 1927 and 1928. The Na
tional League has now lost 12 of
the last 13 world's series games
and must wait another year for
any chance of revenge.
