St. Louis. Oct. :). Chicago's White
Sox scored another shutout victory
over St. Ixmis yesterday by a score of
4 to 0. This, with the defeat of the
Highlanders by the Athcltics, put the
Sox ne step nearer the American
league pennant. So today is to be a
crucial point in the struggle. If the
Sox win one of the two games today
and New Yolk loses it will be the
Spuds and Sox in the battle for the
world's championship. If both rivals
win Chicago will have to get both
games to clinch the liag.
