  • Game 2 (October 15), Sportsman's Park, St. Louis — With Chicago leading 5–4 in the sixth inning, Browns manager Charles Comiskey called his team off the field to protest a ruling made by umpire Dave Sullivan. The game was forfeited to Chicago.[1]

  • Game 4 (October 17), Sportsman's Park, St. Louis — St. Louis won, 3–2.
  • Game 5 (October 22), Recreation Park, Pittsburgh — The fifth game was played at Pittsburgh. The weather was cold and not over 500 people were present. Chicago won easily (9–2) through superior batting and fielding. At the end of the seventh inning, the game was called on account of darkness.[2]
  • Game 6 (October 23), Cincinnati Base Ball Grounds, Cincinnati — The series moved from Pittsburgh to Cincinnati‚ setting a record for most host cities in a World Series. (The 1887 series was later staged in 10 cities.) Chicago took a 3–2 series lead by beating the Browns 9–2.
  • Game 7 (October 24), Cincinnati Base Ball Grounds, Cincinnati — Behind pitcher Dave Foutz, St. Louis defeated Chicago 13–4 in the 7th and final game. The Browns claim the game 2 forfeit didn't count and therefore claim the championship. The two clubs split the $1000 prize.[3]
