Why the Red Sox won: Boston's deep rotation (Ernie Shore, Dutch Leonard, Babe Ruth and Carl Mays) once again proved too tough for its opponent as the Red Sox took their second straight World Series.

Why the Robins lost: Casey Stengel hit .364, but the team hit just .200 overall and star Zack Wheat drove in just one run.

Memorable moment: Ruth, then a young 21-year-old left-hander, pitched all 14 innings in Boston's Game 2 victory.

Key stat: 13. The number of consecutive scoreless innings for Ruth in Game 2 after allowing Hy Myers' inside-the-park homer in the first inning. It began a then-record of 29 2/3 scoreless frames.
