In ten rounds Ferns has a chance

Third place has been cinched by
the Cubs. Evers' men can lose all of
their remaining games and the Pi
rates win all, but the standing of the
teams will remain unchanged. Un
less a miracle occurs, that third rung
will be the final resting place of the
West Siders. There was hope for a
