  • Game 1 (October 14): Darkness ends game one after 8 innings‚ with the teams tied 5-5.
  • Game 2 (October 15): With Chicago leading 5-4 in the sixth inning, Browns manager Charles Comiskey calls his team off the field to protest a ruling made by umpire Dave Sullivan. The game is forfeited to Chicago.
  • Game 6 (October 23): The series moves from Pittsburgh to Cincinnati‚ setting a record for the series played in the most cities. (It was also played in New York and St. Louis.) Chicago takes a 3-2 series lead by beating the Browns 9-2.
  • Game 7 (October 24): Behind pitcher Dave Foutz, St. Louis defeats Chicago 13-4 in the 7th and last game. The Browns claim the game 2 forfeit didn't count and therefore claim the championship. The two clubs split the $1000 prize.[1]
