Even Steven: Cardsí Third Straight Win Knots Series
The St. Louis Cardinals moved to within one game of the world championship today, downing the Sacramento Solons on the road at Moreing Park by a score of 8-5. Cardinals left fielder Joe Medwick was named player of the game after he went 5-5 with 5 singles, while scoring 2 times and driving in 2. The win ties the best-of-seven World Series at three games apiece.

In the bottom of the eighth, Lloyd Davenport stood in the box, looking for a pitch to hammer. The Solons were trailing 8-3, but had the bases loaded. That's when Mort Cooper made a terrific pitch and Davenport grounded out. Gone was the dream of a Sacramento comeback.

Game 7 is scheduled for tomorrow at Moreing Park. Slated to start are Ken Heintzelman for the St. Louis Cardinals and Manny Salvo for the the Sacramento Solons.
