Exciting finish between 32 & 33 seeds…

Filed under: Uncategorized — stevemryan @ 3:57 pm

Pittsburgh looked in control of the game early.  Mamaux took a no-hitter into the bottom of the 6th inning when Vin Campbell slashed a two out triple.  Al Sheer had a harmless two out double in the 7th, but the real harm started with the two out triple off the bat of the pitcher, Earl Moseley, followed by an RBI single from Campbell to tie the score at 1-1.

Pittsburgh had scored in the top of the 6th inning on Bill Hinchman’s two out single with runners on 1st & 2nd.  Hinchman then stole 2nd, but Honus Wagner ended the threat with a deep fly-ball to center.

Wagner lead off the top of the 9th with a double and moved to 3rd when Jim Viox hit the 5-3 ground ball. With Wagner on 3rd and one out, Doug Baird hit a fairly deep fly-ball to right fielder Campbell, who immediately fired home to close the inning with the nifty 9-9-2 double play when Bill Rariden tagged the surprised Wagner.

Edd Roush led off the bottom of the 9th with a single and moved to 2nd on the long throw from 3rd to 1st after Frank LaPorte’s ground ball.  Al Sheer coaxed a walk and Bill MacKechnie scorched a grounder to third-baseman Baird that was too hot to handle, leaving the bases loaded with one out. Emil Huhn hit a grounder to second-sacker Viox.  The flip to Wagner forced the runner at 2nd, but the throw was not in time to 1st and the winning run scored.

Newark advances to play top-seeded 1915 Boston Red Sox in the 2nd round.

There's a fine line between visionary and wrong. Unfortunately, it takes a visionary to see it.
