Sailors Rally Past Chiefs to Claim 1-0 Series Lead
The Philadelphia Sailors started the World Championship Series in dramatic fashion today, stealing Game 1 from the Chicago Chiefs in a walk-off. Philadelphia won 5-4 behind a good day from starter Johnny Davis. The right-hander threw 9 innings of 8-hit ball in the win, which gave the Sailors a 1-0 lead to start the best-of-7 series.

The game was still up for grabs in the bottom of the ninth. With two out, Davis hit a fastball from Ruben Reyes for a run-scoring single. The Sailors, in dramatic fashion, had a walk-off win.

"We'll enjoy this win," said Davis. "But there's more we hope to accomplish."

Game 2 is scheduled for tomorrow at Sailors Memorial Stadium. Slated to start are Lou Felkel for Chicago and Rollie Beal for Philadelphia.
