CINCINNATI WINS FIFTH GAME OVER CHICAGO BY SCORE 5 TO 0
By the Associated Press
Comiskey Park, Chicago, Ill., Oct. 6 – Cincinnati won the fifth game of the world’s series from the Chicago Americans here today by a score of five to nothing. Eller’s pitching for the visitors was almost perfect exhibition of twirling skill. He allowed the American leaguers three hits, scattered into as many innings, retired nine of them by the strikeout route, and was himself in the plays in the sixth inning that netted Cincinnati four runs. In this round he got a double, and by good base running landed on third. The support accorded him by his teammates was flawless.
On the other hand, Williams for the White Sox allowed but four hits, was slightly wild, and his teammates did not support him as well as the Reds supported Eller, and the visitor succeeded in getting hits off of him at an opportune moment. The series now stands: Cincinnati, four won; one lost. Chicago, one won; four lost.
