In the final games of the American League season, the Red Sox broke even with the Yankees, winning the first game 3 to 2 with Sam Jones pitching.

Mogridge, and it was the sixth time that Mogridge has beaten the Sox this season. In the second game, which New York 4 to 3, Home Run Baker's hit in the ninth off John's Dubuc spelled victory for the Yankees.
Babe Ruth Stuffy McInnis were slightly injured. The Babe was hit on the arm by love in the first game, and Stuffy turned his ankle chasing a foul fly in the last inning of the second game. Harry Hooper and Everett Scott in playing in this game, did not miss a game all
The Red Sox left for Chicago at 5 o'clock this afternoon, and are due there at 4 PM tomorrow afternoon. The Red Sox are in fine spirits and apparently are not worrying over the outcome of the series with the Cubs. Everybody is in good shape physically and the boys are
also mentally fit as the experts say. The players had a meeting before leaving Boston and unanimously went on record as recommending that Dr. Martin Lawler get a World Series share. Dave Shean acted as spokesman and put the matter up to manager Ed Barrow very strongly.
Freddy Thomas will re-join the club in Chicago, on leave from the Great Lakes Naval Air Station.
