The Athletics called on Chief Bender to turn the tables on the Giants. His opponent was 21 game winner Joe McGinnity. The game was silent until the top of the 3rd. Ossee Schreckengost led off by reaching on an error by Dan McGann. Bender sacrificed, moving Schreckengost to second. After a ground out by Topsy Hartsel moved Schreckengost to third, Bris Lord singled to left and put an unearned run on the board for the A's. The slim margin held until the top of the 8th, where the A's looked to add more crooked numbers to the board. With one out, Schreckengost once again was the catalyst, as he singled to centerfield. Hartsel's double scored Schreckengost all the way from first, and a single by Lord brought Hartsel home, making it 3-0 in favor of the A's. There was little the Giants could do, as Bender continued to cruise and got out of late inning jams to pitch a complete game shutout and tie the Series at 1 game a piece.

Christy Mathewson once again took the mound for Game 3. Opposing him this time was Andy Coakley. In a Series of so few runs, a turnabout took place. In the top of the 1st, Roger Bresnahan was hit by the pitch to lead off. A single to right by Mike Donlin moved Bresnahan to third with one out. Dan McGann then singled to right to bring Bresnahan home. An error by Danny Murphy allowed Donlin to score and also allowed Sam Mertes to reach base. After Bill Dahlen walked, Coakley now faced a bases loaded, one out situation down by 2 with Art Devlin batting. However, Coakley induced the double play, and the A's had a chance to come back. But, in the top of the 5th, the Giants proved the game belonged to them. Bresnahan walked with one out and George Browne singled, but moved to second on the throw to third base. Donlin was walked intentionally, setting up the double play. But things continued to crumble for Coakley and the A's. McGann reached on another error by Danny Murphy, reloading the bases and scoring a run. Mertes singled, reloading the bases and scoring another run. A force by Bill Dahlen at second allowed Donlin to score. After Dahlen stole second, Devlin singled, bringing home McGann. When Devlin stole second, Dahlen took advantage of the situation and scored from third. Obruptly, the outburst came to an end. Even though the Giants led by 7 and Mathewson was pitching beautifully for them, they made two more runs happen in the 9th, when McGann doubled home Browne and Donlin. Mathewson pitched his second complete game shutout, giving the Giants a 2 games to 1 lead in the Series.

With two outs, Billy Gilbert singled to left, bringing Mertes home. This one run remained the only run of the game, as McGinnity outdueled Plank 1-0. The Giants now led 3 games to 1.

The Giants looked to wrap up the Series behind the perrenial Christy Mathewson, who would be facing Chief Bender in this game. The game was locked at 0-0 until the bottom of the 5th, where Sam Mertes scored before a bizarre double play was induced that involved Bill Dahlen and Billy Gilbert. In the 8th, the Giants sought insurance, and received an insurance run when Mathewson scored on a ground out by George Browne after Roger Bresnahan doubled. Mathewson rapped up the Series by inducing three ground outs in the top of the 9th, thereby completing perhaps the single greatest performance by any player in World Series history. Mathewson pitched his third complete game shutout, which, in modern times, can never be duplicated.

World Series - MSN Encarta (1236 words)
The World Series is held in October and concludes the major league baseball season.
The first contests resembling the World Series were held during the 1880s, when the leading baseball clubs of the two major leagues—the National League and the American Association—agreed to play in exhibition games following their regular seasons.
The first World Series was held in 1903, when Barney Dreyfuss, owner of the NL champion Pittsburgh Pirates, challenged Henry Killilea, owner of the AL champion Boston Americans (later renamed the Boston Red Sox), to a best-of-nine-games series.
World Series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (7237 words)
In baseball, the World Series is the championship series of Major League Baseball in the United States and Canada, played in October after the end of the regular season between the pennant winner of the American League and the pennant winner of the National League.
The Series winner is determined through a best-of-seven playoff (except in 1903, 1919, 1920 and 1921 when the winner was determined through a best-of-nine playoff) and is awarded the World Series Trophy, as well as World Series rings.
These series' were arranged by the individual teams, not by the leagues directly, the same as the 1880s World's Series matches had been, and which had often proved troublesome.
