1919 World Series, Game 3
Rookie pitcher Dickie Kerr, who was to start Game 3 for the Sox, was not in on the plot to fix the series.
The original plan was for the conspirators, who disliked Kerr, to lose this game; but by now dissent among the players meant that the plan was in disarray. Burns still had faith, however, and gathered the last of his resources to bet on Cincinnati. It was a decision that would leave him broke, as Chicago scored early — Gandil himself driving in two runs — and Kerr was masterful, holding the Reds to three hits in throwing a complete game shutout and a 3–0 victory.
