Big Train…

Filed under: Uncategorized — stevemryan @ 11:41 am

The 26th seeded 1915 Washington Senators faced the 39th seeded 1915 New York Yankees.  Walter Johnson (A&CXZ) was up against Ray Caldwell (BY).  The Senators were a Fielding Three while the Yankees were Fielding Two.  

The Senators won 4-1 in 11 innings.  Clyde Milan crushed a 2-run HR in the top of the 11th after Ed Foster reached on an error to give Washington a lead they would not relinquish.  Johnson pitched well allowing  three hits and one walk while striking out seven.  Caldwell struggled early as the Yanks turned two double plays in each of the first two innings.  Caldwell allowed seven hits and three walks while only striking out three.

This was a fun game.  Johnson was perfect going into the 5th inning and lost the no-hitter and lead when the 7th and 8th hitters led off with back-to-back hits.  The Yankees led off the 6th with a walk and their only other base runner came on a one-out hit in the 11th.

The Senators looked like that would bust it open early, but the two double plays killed the 1st & 2nd inning opportunities.  Washington finally tied the game up when the pitcher led off the top of the 8th with a triple and scored on Ed Foster’s one-out single.  Foster then stole 2nd but was stranded.  Foster later scored the go ahead run in the top of the 11th.  

Both pitchers tossed complete games.  Caldwell advanced to an A grade and the Yankees didn’t have much of a bullpen.  Johnson was masterful all day.  Another fun game!

I am listening to last night’s Braves-Mets game.  I will keep listening to this until around 1pm when I can listen to today’s game.  The Braves seem to be better than the sum of their parts and they are a lot of fun to listen to.  Jim Powell and Don Sutton do a great job and listening to a winning team as told by announcers that love the game is a bonus.  That is why I like the Giants broadcasts so much.  Jon Miller loves the game.  And why wouldn’t he?  Life is good!

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