National Pennant Winners Take the Baseball Blue Ribbon.
Detroit, Mich., Oct. 16.-The Chicago National league baseball team won the world’s championship here by defeating the Detroit Americans by the score of 2 to 0. It was the fourth successive victory for the Cubs in as many days. Taking advantage of every slip made by the Tigers and running the bases cleverly, they scored two runs in the first two innings, while the Detroit team did not succeed in getting one man over the home plate.
Mullen and Brown pitched well, but the Chicago man received better support from his teammates. Brown was also steadier than Mullen, giving only one base on balls to Mullen’s three, one of which developed into a run in the first inning.
