Another game…

Filed under: Uncategorized — stevemryan @ 1:49 pm

The 22nd seeded 1914 Washington Senators beat the 43rd seeded 1915 Buffalo Blues 2-0.  Walter Johnson (AXZ) defeated Al Schultz (AXW) as both pitchers went the distance.  The only runs of the game were scored in the top of the 9th inning when Chick Gandil led off with a single and a stolen base, moved to 3rd on a groundout to the firstbaseman and knocked home on a triple by Howard Shanks.  Shanks scored on a groundout to short by George McBride.  If the infield had been playing in, the ball would have made it to the outfield for a single.

Schultz held the Senators to four hits and three walks while striking out five.  Johnson shutout the Blues scattering six hits and two walks as he struck out four.  The Blues committed one error that didn’t directly cause any runs to score.





The Federal League teams seemed to do well in the top half of the bracket, but maybe they were just fortunate in the seeding and things are leveling out.  This game was the rare game the had two starters with A grades.  Both pitchers also had an X rating with Johnson receiving the Z (for allowing fewer walks) and Schultz getting the W (more walks allowed).  The Z didn’t change anything in the game, but the W did and the X did as well.  The changes in the outcome just allowed the lineup to advance.  Good game and it went quickly.  Life is good!

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