BOSTON SOX ARE CHAMPIONS, BY BEATING CHICAGO CUBS Max Flack Paves Way for Barrow's Tribe by Pulling a "Snodgrass" that Gave Hubmen 2-to-i. Victory in Sixth Game of Series. By W. S. FARNSWORTH. Boston, Sept. II.?The Boston Red Sox are the 1918 champions of the world. They captured the crown at Fenway Park today, defeating the Cubs in the sixth game of the series, 2 to 1. Of the six contests played, the American League pennant winners captured four, the National League representatives being returned victors twice. The "breaks" decided every battle, and Boston was lhe favored ?on of Dame Fortune. ? Boston has never lost a world series. There have been fifteen title contest?? th first starting in 1903. and the Red Sox have been returned tbe \ictor in five, while the Brave?, in 19M, won their only one in the annual classic. Jimmy Collins piloted the Red Sox to their first win in 1903, his team capturing five of the eight games played with the Pirates. -The ?ma team won t'a? pennant? ?aa?..H In 19?M, but tie niants Tltmmt? ta face them for the championship of tit? world.

"Ft wa? on the s,ame kind of a tly ball Uta? Fred Snodgrass muffed on the bain? grounds in sttt, thereby taking ev championship from the Giants right at a time when they appeared to have It sewed up. , Flacks horrible error gave the Red So? both of their runs. But fur it. tite funs -would have returned the winner. 1 to 0. and put them relves on even terms with the Red S?>x The misplay took place in the tfcird Inning. Two were out and the Red *??. h id two runners aboard tie patii.-? . George Tyler, the game southpaw, and Carl Mays, he of the submarine fling, had successfully gone through two spasms without being dented for counters. The best way to lead up to and describe th?? error is to give the details of the fatal frame, so here ?Oda ?Mays, th? flret ' batfr to face Tyler, drew u pa?s. He was suc -rully sacrificed along by Harry Ilooper. who stropped a tap in front r>T*-the plate and was thrown out by Tyler. "altean jiaj a good tye and wailed out four wide flings. Pick tossed ont Strunk. Maya moved to third ?nd Shean to second. Whiteman wa? up and Tyler, after getting two ?trikes on the pudgy left fielder. tHed to coax him into hitting ftt t*o halls a trifle wide. But White man refused to go after them. Then Tyler u?ed a fast ball over the outside corner and Whiteman sent a line drive to right. Flack, who was playing a fairly deep field, tore In fsatt. got under the welt, .took the bait with both hands and dropped it. Bafore he could recover it both Mays and Shean had registered. Mclnnis followed with an Infield tap that Hoi. locjier knocked down and threw late to Merkle. but when Whiteman tried to make third he was nipped when Fred pegged accurately to Deal. Time and again the Cubs threat ened, but loose work on the bases proved costly. They cashed their lone rtfn in the fourth when Flack led off with a single over second and moved Dg when Holloeher grounded to Mc tnnl.. Mann was hit on the ankle with the count two and two on him. The .kiajor- was badly stung and it was ft,Tly three minutes before he wa? able to hobble to first. While Paskert was at bat Mann took too big a lead oil flrst and Wally Icjiang nipped him with a peachy |-"8n-> peg to Mclnnis. The major Hade an awful kick but Kill Klein ta?led the play properly. This "boner" noted most costly as following ef fort* of attacking Cubs show. Paakert Anally strolled, after Mays lad him In the hole with two strikes ind no balls. Holloeher pilfered third tri the fourth ball, catching Schang tound asleep. Then Merkle came across with a ?ashing single down the tlflrtl base Ine, Holloeher ?.coring. It Mann had tot beam killed off he would have aoen on second at the time and coui.l lave cantered in with another tally. The Cubs were still full of light, lowever, and when Pick welted a ?Vcked'drlve to riaht, a low, singing Iner, the Cubs thought tt a sure hit. ?ut the fleet-footed Hooper made a ?eking shoestring spear, ending the ?/??ternera' rally. Whiteman. by a marvelous catch r.^the eighth, stopped another ?fireater.d bombardment of the ? fu*?. Manager Mitchell aent young Jarrber to pinch for Deal. He aught a fast one on the end of his ?art, and the ball went tearing for "he left field fence. A positive triple t -looked to he to the Cubs.
