1918 Boston Red Sox @ 2012 South Boston Rats

Behind the shutout pitching of Whitey Bulger, the South Boston Rats defeated the 1918 Boston Red Sox. Not a small feat considering the Red Sox beat the Cubs in the 1918 World Series. But was that series played fair & square?

To a number of fans the South Boston team's victory left a sour taste in their mouths. But a win is a win is a win. And the Rats won this game, fair and square.
