SEASON SUMMARY: The Reps and Stickpins were 1-2, wire to wire, setting up a much antipated World Series. The Stickpins shocked the Reps with blowouts in Games 1 and 2. In Game 3, Tris Speaker's error allowed Honus Wagner to score from 1st base in the top of the 10th for a dramatic 2-1 victory by the Stickpins, and they took a commanding 3-0 lead. The tide turned with Reps blowouts in Games 4 and 5. A close win for the Reps in Game 6 set up the 7th and decisive game. Rebounding from a Game 1 pounding, Christy Mathewson pitched brilliantly, and Eddie Plank finished off, as the Reps completed the greatest comeback in World Series history.
