1919 World Series, Game 4

Cicotte was again Chicago's starter for the fourth game, and he was determined not to look as bad as he had in the first.

For the first four innings he and Reds pitcher Jimmy Ring matched zeroes. With one out in the fifth, Cicotte fielded a slow roller by Pat Duncan, but threw wildly to first for a two-base error. The next man up, Larry Kopf, singled to left; Cicotte cut off the throw from Jackson and then fumbled the ball, allowing Duncan to score. The home crowd was stunned by the veteran pitcher's obvious mistake. When Cicotte then gave up a double to Greasy Neale that scored Kopf, the score was 2–0 – enough of a lead for Ring, who threw a three-hit shutout of his own. The Reds led the Series 3–1.

After the game, "Sport" Sullivan came through with $20,000 for the players, which Gandil split equally between Risberg, Felsch, Jackson, and Williams — who was due to start Game 5 the next day.
