The division gave the Yankees n two-to-one lead for the short series : and retained their first plare posi-tlon by three full games. The Nationals rlung to second plare by a precarious margin. Washington took the first game i by a rousing five-run rally in the eighth after coming from behind to tie the score in the previous in-j ning. Each team was forced to throw four pitchers into the halt!" In the second game, the Yankee's big guns opened up an eight-run j lead in the first two innings. Herb Pennock performed the unusual for the day by lasting the route, but he; was hard pressed as the Senator:! I kept pecking away, scoring five runs in the last three frames.
