The 35-year-old Ehmke's first-game appearance was no sentimental move by Mack. The pitcher was considered to be over the hill; he'd won only seven games, pitched only two complete games, and worked a total of 55 innings in the regular season. Mack chose Ehmke over Grove or Earnshaw because he thought the hard-hitting Cubs would find Ehmke's pitches baffling. He was proven right, as Ehmke struck out 13 Cubs, a Series record that would stand until 1953. Howard had spent the last few weeks of the season scouting the Cubs.

1929 World Series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (241 words)
In the 1929 World Series, the Philadelphia Athletics beat the Chicago Cubs in 5 games.
The famous "Mack Attack" occurred in 1929, named for the legendary manager of the Athletics, Connie Mack, in which the Athletics overcame an eight-run deficit by scoring ten runs in the 7th inning of Game 4.
The inning featured an infamous Cubs moment when center fielder Hack Wilson lost Mule Haas' fly ball in the sun resulting in a bases-clearing, inside-the-park home run, although the A's still trailed 8-7 at that point.
World Series: Definition and Much More From Answers.com (2968 words)
The World Series is the championship series of Major League Baseball in the United States and Canada, the culmination of the sport's postseason each October.
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.
One of these series at the end of 1903 was a meeting between the two pennant winners and is known as the 1903 World Series.
