Why the Athletics won: They hit only .197, but the 1-2 combo of George Earnshaw and Lefty Grove was dominant.

Why the Cardinals lost: They hit .314 and scored more than 1,000 runs in the regular season, but hit just .200 and averaged two runs per game.

Memorable moment: Jimmie Foxx broke a 0-0 tie in the ninth inning of Game 5 with a two-run homer off Burleigh Grimes.

Key stat: 1. The amount of rest (one day) for Earnshaw, who pitched seven innings in Game 5 and returned to the mound two days later to throw a five-hit complete game in the finale.
