Why the Cardinals won: Veteran hurler Pete Alexander won two games and saved Game 7.

Why the Yankees lost: Babe Ruth was caught stealing second base for the final out of Game 7 with slugger Bob Meusel at the plate.

Memorable moment: Alexander entered in the seventh inning of Game 7 with the bases loaded and struck out Tony Lazzeri -- after a long fly that drifted foul.

Key stat: 11. The combined number of runs scored by the Yankees in every game but Game 4, in which they scored 10 behind Ruth's three home runs.
