Despite hitting  just .192 in 1903, Lou Criger still managed to hit 10 triples.

In the 3rd inning, both Kitty Bransfield and Tommy Leach booted ground balls, setting up a 2 out rbi single off the bat of Jimmy Collins, giving the Americans a 1-0 lead.

In the 4th inning with Buck Freeman on 2nd, 2nd baseman Claude Ritchey threw wildly to 1st, allowing Freeman to score the Americans’ 2nd run of the game. Lou Criger, this series offensive surprise, followed with his 4th triple of the series driving in Candy LaChance.

That was all the scoring in the game, as Bill Dineen tossed his 2nd straight shutout of the series, finishing strong, retiring the last 15 Pirate batters.
