1921 - 3 doubles from the stick of Detroit’s Harry Heilmann off the Big Train is not nearly enough as the Sens rough up the Tigers, 14-6. The win at Navin Field commences an 11 game winning streak for Washington.
1934 - The mercury hits 105 degrees, a record high temperature in Chicago. The Sens bats are cold, as Washington melts in defeat to the White Sox, 4-1. OF Johnny Gill‘s home run is the only offense for Joe Cronin‘s squad.
1937 – Wes Ferrell‘s 2-pinch hit RBI’s enables the Nats to take both ends of a twinbill at St. Louis, both by the score of 6-5. Ferrell’s heroics include a sac fly that wins the first game and a RBI single in the nitecap.
1946 – The road Senators, behind the pitching of number 00, Bobo Newsom, squeeze by the Tigers, 1-0. For Detroit’s Dizzy Trout, it is his 5th shutout loss of this season. Stan Spence, 4-for-4 on the day, scores the only run when he crosses the plate on a Cecil Travis single.
1966 - In the first of two in D.C., Bob Saverine, Don Lock, Ken McMullen and Fred Valentine all homer in a 6-2 victory over the A’s. Pete Richert fans 8 and walks none in the complete game. Youngster Catfish Hunter absorbs the defeat. In the finale, Ken Harrelson‘s pinch hit home run with two Senators on base propels Washington to the sweep, a 7-4 win. Former Senator Jim Duckworth is the loser for Kansas City in game two.
