Why the Cubs won: They held the Tigers to just three runs in winning the final four games after the opener ended in a 12-inning tie.

Why the Tigers lost: Young star Ty Cobb, fresh off his first batting title, hit .200 without an RBI.

Memorable moment: The Tigers had the first game won but catcher Charlie Schmidt dropped a two-out third strike in the ninth that led to a game-tying rally.

Key stat: 15. The number of steals for the Cubs, who went wild on the bases, in addition to holding the Tigers to a .218 batting average.
