The Tigers won the Series four games to three, giving them their second championship and first since 1935.Paul Richards picked up four runs batted in in the seventh game of the series, to lead the Tigers to the 9–3 game win, and 4–3 Series win.The World Series again used the 3–4 wartime setup for home field sites, instead of the normal 2–3–2. Although the major hostilities of World War II had ended, some of the rules were still in effect. Many of the majors' better players were still in military service. Warren Brown, author of a history of the Cubs in 1946, commented on this by titling one chapter "World's Worst Series". He also cited a famous quote of his, referencing himself anonymously and in the third person. When asked who he liked in the Series, he answered, "I don't think either one of them can win it."In a similar vein, Frank Graham jokingly called this Series "the fat men versus the tall men at the office picnic."One player decidedly not fitting that description was the Tigers' slugger Hank Greenberg, who had been discharged from military service early. He hit the only two Tigers homers in the Series, and scored seven runs overall and also drove in seven.The Curse of the Billy Goat originated in this Series before the start of Game 4.[1] Having last won the Series in 1908, the Cubs owned the dubious record of both the longest league pennant drought and the longest World Series drought in history, not winning another World Series until 2016.The Series was a rematch of the 1935 World Series. In that Series' final game, Stan Hack led off the top of the ninth inning of Game 6 with a triple but was stranded, and the Cubs lost the game and the Series. Hack was still with the Cubs in 1945. According to Warren Brown's account, Hack was seen surveying the field before the first Series game. When asked what he was doing, Hack responded, "I just wanted to see if I was still standing there on third base."Contents [hide] 1Summary2Matchups2.1Game 12.2Game 22.3Game 32.4Game 42.5Game 52.6Game 62.7Game 73Composite box4Notes5References6External linksSummary[edit]AL Detroit Tigers (4) vs. NL Chicago Cubs (3)GameDateScoreLocationTimeAttendance 1October 3Chicago Cubs – 9, Detroit Tigers – 0Briggs Stadium2:1054,637[2] 2October 4Chicago Cubs – 1, Detroit Tigers – 4Briggs Stadium1:4753,636[3] 3October 5Chicago Cubs – 3, Detroit Tigers – 0Briggs Stadium1:5555,500[4] 4October 6Detroit Tigers – 4, Chicago Cubs – 1Wrigley Field2:0042,923[5] 5October 7Detroit Tigers – 8, Chicago Cubs – 4Wrigley Field2:1843,463[6] 6October 8Detroit Tigers – 7, Chicago Cubs – 8 (12 innings)Wrigley Field3:2841,708[7] 7October 10Detroit Tigers – 9, Chicago Cubs – 3Wrigley Field2:3141,590[8]Matchups[edit]Game 1[edit]Wednesday, October 3, 1945 2:30 pm (ET) at Briggs Stadium in Detroit, MichiganTeam123456789RHEChicago4030002009130Detroit000000000060WP: Hank Borowy (1–0) LP: Hal Newhouser (0–1) Home runs: CHC: Phil Cavarretta (1) DET: NoneThe visiting Cubs began with a bang, scoring four times in the first.

Dizzy Trout went the distance for Detroit with a five-hitter. A four-run fourth against Cub starter Ray Prim gave Trout all the runs he needed, Roy Cullenbine's RBI double the inning's big blow.Game 5[edit]Sunday, October 7, 1945 1:30 pm (CT) at Wrigley Field in Chicago, IllinoisTeam123456789RHEDetroit0010041028110Chicago001000201472WP: Hal Newhouser (1–1) LP: Hank Borowy (1–1)Back in form, Newhouser went the distance for Detroit, striking out nine.

In the 12th, after a one-out single by Frank Secory, pinch-runner Bill Schuster came all the way around on Stan Hack's walk-off double to left.Besides being the last World Series game the Cubs won until 2016, this would also be the second -- and last -- World Series game that the Cubs would win before their hometown fans at Wrigley Field, until 2016. The only other Wrigley victory was Game 5 in 1935.Game 7[edit]Wednesday, October 10, 1945 1:30 pm (CT) at Wrigley Field in Chicago, IllinoisTeam123456789RHEDetroit510000120991Chicago1001000103100WP: Hal Newhouser (2–1) LP: Hank Borowy (2–2)The Cubs went with the overworked Borowy, who lasted just three batters, each of whom singled.
