Herbert (STL) allowed 2 straight hits in the Second Inning and then only had one rough spot in the Fourth Inning when he gave up back-to-back walks and and a single that gave Chicago their only run of the game.
McConnell (CHI) was hurt by an error by first baseman Joe Weiss in the Seventh Inning that led to the tying St. Louis run.
Harry Fritz (CHI) third baseman for the Whales blasted a shot in the Eighth Inning (with a man on base) that was caught at the left field wall for an out.
McConnell couldn't get through the Ninth Inning after giving up a lead-off double to Ward Miller and a follow-up walk to Delos Drake. Brennan relieved McConnell but gave an RBI single to pinch-hitter Bobby Vaughn that put St. Louis ahead in the top of the Ninth.
