* Lou Gehrig has 2 HR & 2 Triples

The sport's section (page 21) has a four column headline: "Gehrig Hits Two, Ruth One, as Yanks Win" with subheads that include: "Gehrig Hits 2 Homers, Ruth One as Champions' Artillery Silence Chicago" "2 Triples For Gehrig Also" and more. (see) First report coverage on Lou Gehrig collecting 14 total bases while hitting 2 home runs and 2 triples in one game. Great to have in this famous NYC title.
