spectacular world's series fights in

championship banner they had flown
for the past two years and tonight,
with this record shattering million dol-

Gripping Rally
The Yankees won the sixth and final
game this afternoon at the Polo
Grounds, lair of the Giants by coming
from behind and scoring five runs in
a dramatic, close gripping eighth in-
ning rally, just when it seemed that
the McGrawmen, fighting desperately
with their backs to the wall, would tie
the series and force the seventh con-
test to decide the struggle. The final
score was 6-4.

Written in Sport lHstory
The story of that eighth inning to-
day, coming when it appeared that the
deadly southpaw arm of Arthur Nehf
and the inspired playing of Frank
Frisch would hold the headlong rush
of the Yankees, will go down as one
of the most decisive championship
turns of all times.
It witnessed, too the failure of the
game's idol of idols to answer a call
to famie that would have raised him to
heights greater than he had ever
touched. For Babe Ruth, star of stars,
the highest hitter ever, while he had
started the Yankees off in the first in-
ning with his third homerun of the
series, fell down miserably on the
eight inning pinch, striking out with
the bases full and the Yankees yet one
run behind.
In his place a new hero was lifted
up, Bob Meusel, to step into tbe breach
that the Babe had left ana aelivered
the blow that resulted in three runs
and Yankee triumph.
