In honor of actor Andy Garcia and his (unintentionally) hilarious reaction to Sofia (Mary Corleone) Coppola's death scene in "The Godfather, Part III."

The Series

Once again, the White Sox would be pioneers in baseball history, becoming the first team to fall behind 3 games to 1 and rally to win a postseason series. This would not happen in World Series play until the Pittsburgh Pirates would rally against the Washington Senators in 1925.

The Cubs and Sox traded wins in Games 1 and 2, then the Cubs took Game 3 and rallied in the 9th to take Game 4. That's when the Sox kicked it into gear, taking Game 5 3-1 and putting up 5 runs in the 5th inning of Game 6. The five run rally started with two out and no one on base when Buck Weaver reached first on a dropped third strike.

The Cubs scored 2 in the top of the 1st of Game 7, but Weaver once again reached base on an error and the Sox staged a three-run, two-out rally to take a 3-2 lead that they would not relinquish. Eddie Cicotte wrapped up a masterful relief performance (he had relieved starter Jim Scott in the 1st inning) by retiring pinch-hitter Roger Bresnahan to end it.
