ue to rain, Game 5 was postponed from October 5 to October 6. Game 5, which was played at Comiskey Park was the largest attended game of the 1919 World Series at 34,379.

Lefty Williams made his second appearance in the Series and faced the Reds' Hod Eller (19-9). Eller, who slipped and struck his pitching elbow before the game, threw a 3-hit shutout and also established a World Series record with 9 strikeouts in a game.

The game was scoreless for 5 innings, but in the sixth Eller doubled and scored on Morrie Rath's single. With 1 out, Heinie Groh walked. Centerfielder Hap Felsch then dropped Edd Roush's fly ball which scored Rath. Groh also scored on a close play at home. White Sox catcher Ray Schalk argued the call and was promptly ejected. Pat Duncan flied out to left field. Joe Jackson threw home, but Edd Roush scored the fourth run when replacement catcher Byrd Lynn dropped the ball. The Reds would also score an additional run in the ninth inning. With the victory, the Reds took a commanding 4-1 lead in the Series.

After the game, White Sox manager Kid Gleason commented about his teams performance in the Series. "We aren't hitting. I don't know what's the matter, but I do know that something's wrong with my gang. The bunch I had fighting in August for the pennant would


have trimmed this Cincinnati bunch without a struggle. The bunch I have now couldn't beat a high school team."
