Top 5 Players of the 1918 World Series
By Zane Miller On September 11th, 1918, the Boston Red Sox defeated the Chicago Cubs at Fenway Park in Boston to clinch the 15th World Series four games to two. It was the fifth World Series championship for the Red Sox franchise and the fifth that was won in Massachusetts. These are the top five players that I felt most stood out during the series. 5. Bullet Joe Bush (Red Sox)- P Bush took the loss in game two, as the Cubs won it 3-1, however Bush still had a solid game with three earned runs allowed over eight innings along with seven hits and three walks. 4. Lefty Tyler (Cubs)- P Tyler was game two’s player of the game, as he helped lead the Cubs to the 3-1 win with one earned run on six hits and four walks. 3. Hippo Vaughn (Cubs)- P Vaughn got player of the game in game five, as he pitched a complete game shutout with just five hits allowed and a walk as the Cubs went on to the 3-0 win. 2. Babe Ruth (Red Sox)- P Ruth took player of the game in games one and four, pitching a complete game shutout in game one with six hits and a walk, allowing the Red Sox to take the 1-0 victory. Game four saw Ruth go eight innings, allowing two earned runs on three hits and two walks, but still hang on to get the Red Sox a 3-2 win. 1. Carl Mays (Red Sox)- P Mays earned player of the game honors in both games three and six, as in game three he allowed one earned run in a complete game with seven hits and a walk as the Red Sox took a 2-1 victory. In game six, Mays went for another complete game, allowing one earned run, three hits and a pair of walks in the Red Sox’ 2-1 victory as the team clinched the series.
