Today in Tribe History: October 11, 1948
Bob Toth | On 11, Oct 2014
The Cleveland Indians are champions of the baseball world for the second time in club history as they hold on to defeat the Boston Braves by a 4-3 final at Braves Field.
An RBI double by Lou Boudreau in the third gets the Indians on the board. The Braves tie it in the fourth off of Bob Lemon, but the Indians put up a pair of runs in the sixth, including a solo homer from Joe Gordon, and an insurance run in the eighth. The Braves score a pair off of Gene Bearden in the eighth, but their rally falls short.
The Indians missed a chance to win the World Series at home in Cleveland the previous day with Bob Feller on the mound, but the Tribe allowed six runs in the seventh of an 11-5 loss.
