1919 World Series, Game 5

The next game was delayed by rain for a day, and when it got under way, both Williams and Reds pitcher Hod Eller were excellent.

By the sixth inning, neither had allowed a runner past first base, before Eller hit a blooper that fell between Felsch and Jackson. Felsch's throw was off line, and the opposing pitcher was safe at third. Leadoff hitter Morrie Rath hit a single over the drawn-in infield, and Eller scored. Heinie Groh walked before Edd Roush hit a double — the beneficiary of some more doubtful defense from Felsch — to score two more runs, and Roush himself scored shortly thereafter. Eller pitched well enough for the four runs to stand up, and the Reds were only one game from becoming world champions.
